Our reservations were during sunset so the view of Catalina was gorgeous. The calamari was above standard but not excellent. We shared the Toasted Faro and Persimmon Salad Which was amazing. My mom got the Scallops with toasted farrow. Loved the scallops but not the faro. My daughters both got the lobster Carbonara. One loved it and the other didn’t care for the nutmeg flavor. I got the filet Mignon with Brussels sprouts and it was delish. The Bloody Mary and Lemon Drop martini were very yummy! I’d go back again for sure.

Best steak I’ve ever had. A little chilly due to outdoor venue but server was nice enough to put two heaters next to our table. Absolutely gorgeous views.

We had a Covid 19 dinner experience on October 14. Trump did the best they could as far as setting up an outdoor dining spot. But everything else was A-Ok! My suggestion to diners us to come before dark and enjoy the view!

In was wonderful sitting outside on the grass! It was a beautiful evening and of course the view is incredible. We started with the oysters (amazing) and the wedge salad. I had the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly with a side of asparagus! My husband had the beef dip which was also fantastic! We finished with the Trump Tower which is always phenomenal!

The views were lovely...but the whole experience not up to the level it should be. The $70 steak was blah (it should have been spectacular) and it was order "medium-rare" but came "medium-well". The salmon was also a little on the well-done side. It was not busy. We were one of two diners on a holiday. We were hoping for an upscale, fine dining experience with excellent food and very disappointed.

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.

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!
