My friend and I had outstanding eggs benedict the last time he was in town so, of course, we wanted to go back. This time the eggs were overcooked. When the server asked how our food was, and we responded with, "the eggs were overcooked," he simply asked, "is there anything else I can get you." Not, "would you like me to take them back and have them re-make," not even "I'm sorry, I will comp your coffee." He merely went on with his script and glossed right over the fact that we were unhappy with the food. It was unbelievable. Erick, not good. We will not be coming back any time soon, and we will not be recommending to anyone else.

The kitchen staff is getting sloppy and is inconsistent with their portion servings!!! The serving staff appears to be less interested in pleasing the customer and making things right!! Not a good evening!!

We arrived and there was plenty of parking. Walked around and enjoyed the ocean view from outdoors. Found everyone working there to be very personable and this made our dinner and evening the best. The food was great and reasonably priced for such a fancy restaurant.

Nice sitting with an ocean view in the main dining room, the Cafe Pacific. In the rear of the dining room was a large fireplace with the fire cracking and adding a glowing charm.

Thank you to all the staff and whoever owns and maintains this fabulous place.

Out of the 5 sandwiches, 2 were disappointing bcause it was not a full sandwich. The waiter described them as "open sandwiches." Sorry, the menu on the email and the table menu did not describe that. I did not pay for 2 open sandwiches or half sandwiches, and hope in the future you eliminate half a sandwich and serve sandwiches, that is 5 sandwiches. OR change the writing on your menus to let people know they are getting open sandwiches or half sandwiches. Not worth the price. Won't order this next holiday unless it changes.

Also the desserts were mini, again a disappointment. Will not order again.

Took my elderly parents to Christmas Breakfast here. Easy to go from valet into the restaurant with ease with a walker. Chairs in the Bar Restaurant are high backed and comfy for seniors. Not loud inside so they can hear easily. Food was excellent and service was good. Will return soon!!

I have to admit except for the charming young lady at the front desk when I entered the hotel ; the restaurant wait staff left a lot to be desired! I'm not sure if Alejandro was on his own yesterday (and there was one very large table of guests) but I did feel we were pretty much ignored....Initially, by mistake we tried to order from the busboy because Alejandro was missing for quite a while when we wanted to order a starter...........then we were left without a plate to eat our clams and mussels from:( Oh we were given the bowl for our shells alright and the platter of clams/musssels but no other plate (even though we did request one).
Creme Brulee appeared to have slid to one side of the dish after it had been placed originally because it was very deep one side and very shallow other side. Coffee cups were tiny and def no sign of Alejandro for a refill:( Actually quite a disappointing experience and I was so looking forward to it:( Even when we initially tried to order

I love the ambience of this elegant dining room... this was a very late lunch on a Friday afternoon before the noisy TGIF crowd got there to make noise in the bar and spoil our meal…The dining room was practically empty, and very quiet except for the delightful classical background music… Our server, Michelle, spoiled us with attention…We started with a magnificent calamari that we shared… My son had a chicken and spinach hamburger type of concoction that he said was excellent... My husband loves their enormous bowl of clam chowder for lunch… he wasn’t disappointed…I had the hanger steak, rare, finished with a red wine reduction... it was superb...

We took my mom here for a special birthday lunch, and it was very special! Beautiful dining room with a wall of windows to view the amazing ocean and golf course, very attentive service staff and wonderful food. They were also very accommodating to special dietary needs. Come during the day light to get the view!

I ordered the ribeye steak and it was tough and not very flavorful. For the price the steak was not worth the money. The trump tower desert was too sweet and for a signature dessert it was underwhelming. Service was good. Decor at the restaurant felt old and gimmicky.

Cafe Pacific has been consistently excellent in every respect each time we've dined here. Every entree is prepared with care and presented beautifully. Their calamari is the best we have tasted anywhere, and that includes any seafood restaurant you can think of. It is crisp, not greasy at all, and served with both an aioli and a marinara sauce, both excellent. The Ahi salad is amazing, and you would be hard-pressed to find a better hamburger anywhere. Of course, you couldn't find a more beautiful setting for a dining experience, with a panoramic ocean view from virtually anywhere in the restaurant.

We were there for tea. The breads were dry... actually stale tasting. But we get the best service from Marco. He tried hard to correct a problem with the special request we made was misunderstood by the person who took the reservation. I’ll get lunch next time. Better food and better value.

It was a double birthday celebration for me & my mom which we decided to drive from BH per a club member’s recommendation because we want a memorable celebration.
The food was really excellent & enjoyable!
However, service/staff are just ok. It was fairly pleasant for a regular restaurant’s standards but needs more training at a world class club’s level.
Traits like graceful anticipation ( ie: birthday greeting, birthday candles) & accommodation ( ie: we asked for a comfortable chair & best view but were overlooked) of guests ‘ needs are a must for a very good service.
