This restaurant is closed temporarily. Check back soon
We had been hearing about the Castaway Sunday Brunch since moving here 2 years ago and finally decided to go. The venue is by far, one of the most scenic high up in the foothills of Burbank. I would recommend you go just for that. We found the perfunctory greeting and check -in with the hostess staff to be inconsistent with the overall ambience of the venue and the scenic views. In other words, no warm and fuzzies at check-in. The buffet spread was vast, had many choices, but honestly, reminded us of cruise ship buffet food. Lots of quantity, but low on the quality and flavor of the dishes. The waitstaff was just ok. Lots of good service from the lady pouring mimosas, but not so much from the waiter, who we only saw twice in the 2 hours we were there. Overall, pretty mediocre for the $5w/per person asking price. It's my understanding that the dining room is now closed for renovations. I really hope that the upgrade in interior design will also include an upgrade in the overall customer service and food quality experience.
I love this Resturant my coworkers and I come every 3 months. We also celebrate Christmas and exchange our gifts there and enjoy the great food and friends. I come with my family to celebrate birthdays. I can't wait to see what great changes are in store for this great restaurant.
Castaway was absolutely incredible. My wife and I went for our wedding anniversary. We received a glass of champagne on the house for our special occasion. The food is impeccable and was the best tasting food I have ever had. The view was breathtaking, and I would recommend going close to sunset. The service was some of the best you will find. I would recommend this restaurant 110 %.
Great service, the view was fantastic. Great place for a romantic dinner.
It's a very welcoming environment and beautiful view for a special occasion. I would recommend food for anyone. Overall one of the best places I have been for dinner.
We sat down at 4:15 didn't get out till after 6:45. It took atleast an hour and a half after we ordered to get served REALLY BAD FOOD. The table of 8-10 next to us sat down after we ordered they were served and left before us.
Warming staffs with great service! The view is exquisite and the new york stirp steak was excellent!
Overpriced experience for subpar food. Stations were poorly kept and food quality was lacking for the overly charged price.
Although our server was fantastic, we were not pleased with the taste of the food. My steak (ordered medium well) looked great but was very chewy, hard (overcooked), too fatty, and not flavored well at all. As far as the seafood dish for my girlfriend, she complained that it was too salty and had poor flavoring.
We did appreciate the kindness of our server and his manager to move us indoors since there was an unusual amount of bees that kept landing in our food or simply would not leave us alone on the patio. It would be great if in the new upgrades to the restaurant would include an outdoor patio area this is netted for those who want the outdoor ambiance and experience without the bugs or bees.
This place is great for a date and a very beautiful setting. My biggest issues were the fact that I was there on a date and the first 30 minutes were filled with a helicopter putting out a fire on the other side of the hill, a crying baby, loud talkers, and a toddler running around. Once all that subsided, it was a very romantic setting. Great views, great drinks, good food (very rich), awesome staff!
Rude staff at times. Said areas were reserved but a bunch of open tables that never filled. Poor service. Good food and beautiful views.
Totally unexpected price increase for brunch. Two 10 year olds - charge $35 each, last visit were $25 each and adult price increase to $50 each. Was definitely not worth it for the children. Was caught completely unaware. Brunch prices are not posted online on their website.
The service is amazing and the view for the outside dining is breathtaking. Perfect place to relax with a drink in hand. Food is good a little over priced but good.
Decent restaurant, didn't have the area I requested available despite making a reservation and arriving early
Overall it was nice
Need to cut the bushes shorter so are able to see the view of the city.
Our table had not a great view because bushes were to tall.
Had a lovely time here, celebrating my mom's birthday. We sat on the patio, it was a gorgeous view during sunset and afterwards. Our waiter, Scott, was incredible and we really enjoyed our meals! Staff is super friendly.
I took my fiancé for her birthday and we both absolutely loved it. Scott took care of us with excellence and even though the food and view were great, Scott would be the reason for our visit back. Thank you all for the wonderful hospitality!
A friend and I came to Castaway to try their DineLA menu. Food was delicious and the view was beautiful. The service from our waiter was great. We'd like to come back to try their brunch.
