My waiter didn’t give my party the time or day. We were sitting there for about an hour and 15 before our food came out. Some food we got was cold. Did not come back at all after our food to check if it was ok. I’ve been here before but this experience makes me not want to come again

Lobster was horrible. Barley any meat in it and for $40??? And all they did was take my drink off the bill? Served it way late no extra plates by the time we mentioned it again (the next time we were checked on) dinner was done. Prime rib was Lukewarm. Just blah experience and didn’t even get seated near the view instead we were seated where all the parties were taking place. Not worth it.

the service was super super slow, took an hour for us to even order or food. there weren’t many people there so it was unclear what the hold up was. everyone around us seemed to receive speedy service than my table. the food was okay, the calamari was not good and my chicken and waffles was dry. pretty views tho :/

Outdoor dining and feel like banquet food serving to mass crowd. The cocktail was made wrong and no tea pot when asking tea. The waiter was slow and did not make any amend when raising issue/concern. Crab cake was all right, but brocollini was a brown/black color mixed with steamed broccoli to try to “revive” it. Short rib hash was served with whole fingerling roasted potatoes! what I remembered years ago.

I’ve been here before and had superb service. However, this time my experience was pretty underwhelming. The waiter serving us did not really go above and beyond so I thought 20% was a a fair tip. When the time came to check out, it was very in our face with the portable card read and when I said the default of 20% was fine as a tip, she instantly gave attitude. Also, last time I was here, the waiter just left the card reader for us to take our time. I did not like being hovered over and having the tip options pointed out to us. In addition, since the waiter rarely checked on us, we didn’t get to order the bottomless mimosas properly. We ended up having three each, which is nothing crazy and when we asked for one more, the waiter was making a fuss over it. The last time
I was here, the experience was different where the waiter was happy to check in and take in our orders even if it was the last one. I guess service varies but food is consistent.

Absolutely love this place. The food is amazing and the ambience is superb. A friend and I decided to give this place a shot. The food didn’t disappoint. The only negative note I have is that our server disappeared on us after sitting us. We asked for waters and that took 30-35 minutes to get to our table. Our waiter did redeem himself and made sure our service after that was top notch.

I love Castaway and wanted to celebrate my Father in Law’s birthday at a special and beautiful place but I was very disappointed in our last experience. We were not warned about this and were walked over to an outdoor atrium, where the table was dirty(there was crumbs of food on it), shaky and there was trash on the chairs (straw sleeve on one) and another had a napkin on it and it was right in the middle of the cemented area in the sun. Our server was kind and spoke Spanish, which we appreciated, but the service was not what we have come to expect from this establishment. We had to ask for refills on water, coffee, ask for our tables to be cleared of empty plates and trash, (when inside dining, these things are automatically and quickly picked up by the wait staff). We sat in the sun for a very long time until my husband went out to speak with someone to ask them to place an umbrella near us and open it. We asked for clean cutlery before our food arrived and our food was sitting in front of us for sometime before our server came to check on us and hadn’t brought the cutlery. We asked again for it and it was eventually brought. My food was delicious, but my mother and father in law ordered sea food dishes that smelled very fishy and they didn’t seem to care for them. In all, sitting at this shaky, dirty metal table in the hot sun, with not the best service and also, no view (only the sea of tables that were in front of us) made our experience a bit lack luster. I was disappointed that I had talked up castaway so much to my mother and father in law, only to have this experience.

We went there for brunch. It has spectacular view and ambience. Cocktails are always very good. I have been there for dinner. They have much better dishes for dinner.
French toast was more like cake than french toast. No fresh squeezed orange juice was available. I think this is a must for a brunch menu. No gluten free bread, no toast available.
But overall I enjoyed the brunch because of the view and cocktails. I recommend this restaurant and will definitely go there again. Hopefully they add more variety to their brunch menu.

We got the 48oz steak to share. It wasn’t cooked to temp desired. It didn’t look like 48oz. Felt like it was missing a good 8-10oz. I rest of the food was delicious and the view was really beautiful.

Great experience. During these times it was nice to find a place that was well ventilated inside in addition to a gorgeous outside terrace to enjoy our meal. Food was excellent and the servers took great care of us. The staff seemed to have taken extra caution when handling our food and drinks. We will definitely be dining here again very soon.

This is our most favorite venue for family and friend reunions and gets together. Outstanding location. Unforgettable views and sunsets. Even downtown Los Angeles can be seen on the far left. Do not miss it if you live nearby or if you are visiting the area.

Amazing date night. We requested patio seating which was available with a wait. We decided we didn’t want to wait, so we got seated by the window- exactly the view we were looking for. Staff was friendly, the food was SUPERB, and the value was amazing. Great price for 2 meals, 2 cocktails, and 2 appetizers. Will definitely be back for more dates

The food was great. Ambiance and view was lovely. When I’m asked if I want my truffle butter on the side or on the steak presented as if there is no charge for it is amateur. Also I asked for a blend and the waiter said they had none by the glass and instead suggested the most expensive (and average) Pinot available. I don’t like Pinot. I asked for the wine list and there was in fact a blend option and less expensive and better Pinot option if I was to order Pinot. Come on guys, give your customers some credit. Not my first time at the rodeo. I will say kudos to the chef. The steak, Brussels sprouts, complimentary cornbread with insane butter was all to perfection.

First time here with my mother in law. All I can say is WOW! Definitely make a reservation. The entrance is beautiful, the decor inside is beautiful, & the patio is what you come to see! The view is spectacular & worth driving to Burbank for. Everything we ordered drinks, appetizers, bread, salad, entrees, sides, even desert were delicious. Perfect for dates, families, & friends. HIGHLY recommend!

Castaway was a wonderful dining experience. The service was friendly and the food was delicious. I wish they would have been able to be more attentive though. Our sever forgot our drinks for a while and then forgot the straws and give us refills. Other than that, it was very nice.

Well the view is everything that much we all know but the brussel sprouts are to die for and that calamari is the best since 91’ service is always great from the moment you walk in even when you exit they are still smiling saying see you next time. If it's your first time don't park in self parking at bottom of hill the sign is still out so it's confusing but just keep driving up parking is free. And charge your phone because the view is everything
