Service was bad!!! Food was ok at best. The view is amazing but for the price, the only thing i had that was good was the alcohol which its hard to mess that up.

Fabulous food, great service and wonderful views, Castaway always delivers! We had the Pink Brick, the Progressive, the Lamb Chops, and the Ribeye, all were delicious! The cocktails were also wonderful…try the Belle and the Shiso Vain. Highly recommend this restaurant!

I’d recommend for brunch, but not dinner. Food was mediocre and service was terrible. Been there once before for brunch and had a good time. Dinner was the complete opposite.

Took the original guy 20 min just to greet us and bring us water. Then another 20 to see a server and order a drink. He was not attentive and did not give refills until we asked multiple times for refills on waters.
The food and ambiance is always wonderful. Just very disappointed in how bad the service was.

Love Castaway - dont think I've ever had a bad experience and the servers are always top notch. However this time, our table outside was EXTREMELY close to one of the booths to a point where the guests at the other table would bump into my chair often and it felt like i was struggling to feel like i was having dinner with my table as the other guests were so extremely close.

We brought a bottle of wine. Corkage fee I found online was $15, but we were charged $35 (ouch!).

The food was just okay. Nothing memorable about the meal. I was curious to try the 50/50 potatoes but they were just mashed 100% in my opinion.

I also specified in my reservation that it was a birthday celebration but we did not get any special treatment or acknowledgement for it. I didn’t feel right reminding them in front of the birthday person so it went unnoticed sadly.

Server took our order and then never came back, I had to flag down another server about 70 minutes later and told her that we haven’t seen our waiter on over a hour. When we finally got our food within minutes but by then it was cold. Also we were seated outside, which is really nice during sunset but once it gets dark it’s really hard to see what’s on the table, had to use the flashlight on my phone to light up our table.

This spot is stunning! The view is breathtaking, and our server was outstanding. The food was also exceptional. I would love if there was an option to reserve outside, because we made a reservation but had to wait an extra 30 minutes for a table outside. Other than that, it was a very memorable experience!

I made reservations for my fiancé’s birthday. Our reservation was made for 6:45pm, we were not seated until 7:05pm. We went to have the experience of a nice intimate outdoor celebration. Unfortunately, that was not our experience with the place. Due to us not being seated on time, we missed the sunset and we were not seated in the location I asked for prior to coming. Parking there while the establishment had a private event was a nightmare as well. After our dinner was over, we waited 15mins for a shuttle that did not come. We had to walk down the hill to get to our car. My fiancé and we made the best of it. However, I did not enjoy the Castaway experience like I thought we would.

I came early to tell the hostess that we would be willing to wait for an outdoor seat with a good view. They placed us at a table against the building in the back corner. Which was physically a hot area, was too loud with the music, and had awful view. I then asked the waiter if we could move, and they did not move us. This is disappointing since this was my mom’s meal she was most excited for in her visit to Los Angeles, and we wish we were treated like more valued customers. Also, our shrimp cocktail did not come out with dry ice, while all of the tables around us had their smoking with dry ice when it came to their table.

I hope this helps others decide but this was our experience. Tables were about 2 ft apart. You had to lean over every time someone walked by your table whether it was staff or other customers going towards their own table bc they had to walk by and basically brush up against you. The food was bland and our steaks came out cool, not even warm. The waitress was so overwhelmed we saw her 3 times the entire meal. Overall for the price I at least expected descent food however this poorly failed all expectations. Will never visit this restaurant again.

The ambience and service were really great but I don't think it's entirely worth the price for the food. Also, if you're looking to have special requests for an event or your reservation, don't even bother because they don't care about your requests.

This spot is truly wonderful, and the views/vibe are amazing. The ambiance alone means this place could get away with mediocre food and drinks, but then the fact that they have an outstanding menu and cocktails elevates the entire experience. HIGHLY recommend the cauliflower, charcuterie board, and the bone-in ribeye. Additionally, our server, Jana, was beyond delightful - so helpful and energetic in a way that made her a bright spot in an already wonderful experience.

We dined on a Thursday evening. Our server Tatyana really made the experience with amazing service and great energy. The Progressive steak was delicious as well as the cocktails and cream corn side dish. Definitely a must do when in the area.
