    Everything was great. Did notice that they changed complimentary bread and better to having to pay for bread and butter which seems declasse or nickle and dime-ish. Really takes away from the experience of fine coastal dining. Service was very good, and food was also very good.

    Overall it was good. It was pretty pricey for what you got but then again it’s in the heart of Avila Beach.

    The sea bass and halibut were both prepared creatively and so tasty! Clam chowder was excellent as was the service. They need heaters out front so you can sit on patio when it’s cold outside to enjoy the ocean view.

    The food at custom house is always very good. The service in the past was very good. This trip the service was ok. Brought the food but gave it to the wrong people and placed infront of them without asking what they had ordered. Waited too long to get our dinner.

    I had made reservations a week in advance to take some friends who were coming to the Central Coast to visit. I had requested a booth with an ocean view, as well as shared that one person in our party of four was celebrating a birthday. Upon arrival, the hostess said there were no booths with views available ; yet two of the booths had groups with menus in hand. We were on time for the reservation, so this didn’t make sense to me. We were greeted right by our server right after we were sat at a location without a view. Food came out promptly and was good. I was disappointed, as it didn’t seem to make a difference that I had reservations. There was no mention of the birthday by staff, so I was disappointed about that as well.

    Delicious food and very nice server, super beautiful to sit outside. I definitely came during a non busy time though.
