I loved this place , the ambiance was amazing, soft music ! The service was exceptional from the moment we walked in until the moment we left, Turk our server was so professional and extremely nice !
I loved the menu, we had a good selection of wines, cheese & charcuterie a platers, with some appetizers and salads. Everything was amazing except our salads, chicken on the salads did not taste at all, and Salads were over priced comparing to other items on the menu.
But over all experience was so good, but I will never order their salads any more.

We were told by the manager that there was miscommunication. We asked the same person to move us on 4 different occasion right after each table got open. The next table from us (party of 4) asked the same guy to move them to the same table (table for 6) we were asking and got moved in a snap. That got me furious. They said we cant move there coz it was reserved for a party of 6 but they were only 4. We asked first but they got moved even if they were only 4. Only difference is that we are asians and they are not. Maybe his Rolex is much much bigger than mine?!?!? Racism is everywhere

Overall the experience was great but we did have some hiccups here and there. The food was amazing, the drinks were just strong enough and the view was great. On the opposite hand half of my party didn’t get their meals until well after the 3pm brunch cut off time and a waiter spilled mimosas all over someone else in my party. Overall though I enjoyed my experience and will be back!

service was mediocre. had to keep looking for the waiter to get refills on bottomless mimosas (which by the way aren't bottomless). The worst part about it was the check was brought to the table when i had left to the restroom, leaving the bill to my date which she felt obligated to pay. that was embarrassing, and unacceptable. I had to get the manager involved to cancel the transaction without her knowing.

Good experience. Patio sitting was awesome. Views of the valley. Didn't expect so many people during pandemic. And busy even with reservation. Lots of people walking up to dine. Even saw people seated inside in bar area. If your comfortable of being around alot of people during pandemic, then definitely experience.

I’ve been to Castaway many times over the years. Always been one of my favorite restaurants My wife and i were celebrating our wedding anniversary this time. We ordered the Chilean sea bass and it was excellent. We were a little disappointed with the service. It took 45 minutes to get our meal and we got our salad and entree at the same tine The waiter must’ve forgotten to bring the salads first when they were ready He didn’t bring the cornbread and we had to remind him He didn’t acknowledge our wedding anniversary with a free dessert as customary

I love Castaway's food and ambiance. I had friends in town and we went for brunch. We were told that each table was given 90 minutes to dine - not a problem. It took about 20 minutes from the time we ordered mimosas to receive them and they came 2-3 minutes before our entrees. Every time after that, it took at least 15 minutes to receive another round after placing another round order. Food was still great, I just wish the service matched the time limit they tried to impose on us.

The perfect place for a social distance dining. The view, the food, and the service was wonderful. The view is something you have to see it for yourself to believe how beautiful it is. The food was nicely seasoned and prepared nicely, plus the price is very reasonable (it’s not cheap but it’s not super expensive like some upcoming, Instagram trend setting places). Service is on point. Plus the tables were nicely spaced and the restaurant is definitely doing all they can to avoid packing the place with customers

Arrive earlier if you want a say on seating. A lot of customers are picky with the seating, so you’ll hear them complain that they came for a special event. (Just like everyone else, soooo) Food was really good! We ordered the Calamari, New York Steak , Mushroom Pasta & 50/50 mashed potatoes.

We went for happy hour. This was stated in my reservation. Although, they sat us in an area in which they don’t serve happy hour. Then we were informed they do not have any open tables for happy hour. When asked if they would honor happy hour prices at our current table. Suddenly a table in the happy hour section became available. (By the way... those tables were not booked... there was always at least one or two open tables in the section. Then basically we were ignored for the evening. We had to flag someone down for every request (ordering, refills, ketchup, the bill). I get it... I worked in restaurants for years... a happy hour 3 top is not on your priority list... but this took it a little too far! The food is yummy, the ambiance is fab... the service... NOT great! Really really disappointing! I had also noted in our reservation it was a birthday... not a mention of anything. We were happy hour... but our bill was about $100 yet we were treated like we ordered ice water and complementary bread. Bummer Castaways... do better!

Food is really good but it’s unbelievably expensive. I would say it’s worth the venue but this place does not have a Michelin Star. Stop trying to charge like it. And no, I am not poor.

Very dissatisfied with our sitting . Reservation was made for restaurant patio ( specially requested since we had important guests ) - however , we were provided with parking terrace table without informing us the menu is completely different and it’s missing multiple items from restaurant menu.
We’ve asked Multiple times to move our party of 4 to main patio - with no result.
Very disappointed !
