We arrived at the restaurant only to discover that they are closed due to COVID-19. We paid for Uber service to get us to and from the property only to end up eating in a hotel bar. Please update Opentable to show all California restaurants as closed until they can prove they are open. I depend on this app to be accurate when I travel.

We spent $30 to Uber there. I was told if it was on open table then it was open. We got there and they were closed. Obviously I was misled. We had just gotten off an amazing whale watching excursion and so it was a big let down to get there and it not be open. I do know that Covid has closed many places, which my frequent stops I’ve noticed are not on open table at the moment because of that. I gave middle of the road ratings, not because of any other reason except that we were misled by open table/Edgewater Grill. So going forward you may want to call and double check.

I was very disappointed and do not know who to blame. I made a reservation for Saturday 16, reservation was accepted and confirmed. When we arrived, it was closed. Other restaurants will give notice they are not taking reservations because they are closed. Neither Edgewater nor Open Table had the courtesy to post that on-site was not available like other restaurants have. We drove 35 minutes to get there for nothing. Fortunately, we went to San Marcos and found one open.

IT IS NOT OPEN...not even at all. GoogleMaps and OpenTable both had it marked as opened and then we showed up and it was completely dark. Go next door to Mr. Moto's because it's the only place thats open

I had a reservation and met my date there and they were closed.
I understand and am sympathetic towards restaurants closures with covid, but they say open, in fact you can still make a reservation for outdoors or high top and they are closed.

I made a reservation for this restaurant two weeks ago and also received a confirmation the day prior. The night of my reservation, I showed up and saw the restaurant was closed. I understand that restrictions are in place however, the fact that I was able to make this reservation was misleading and also disappointing since it was New Years Eve. The restaurant needs to restrict reservations on Open Table if they are not open.

Drive over an hour for our reservation only to find the restaurant was not even open on NYE. This was after we received several confirmations for our reservation. Not sure I’d Open Table or the restaurant is too blame. Either way, very disappointed

The restaurant wasn’t even open after being allowed to make a reservation there. The website said nothing about them being closed either. There shouldn’t be an option to make a reservation if a place is closed.

The website Let me make a reservation online, when we arrived restaurant was completely closed down. Notice on website said outdoor seating and take out available. Whoever runs the website needs to keep the page up to date with correct information. Extremely disappointing. Won’t be back again.

Walked in and wasn’t impressed. Even with a reservation they didn’t actually have a table for us and they seated us on the sidewalk not in their actual restaurant patio. If it wasn’t for the amazing service provided by Erick it would’ve been a very bad experience. Food was amazing service was great. Table was horrible.

Horrible service but pretty view. We had a reservation, when we got there we were sat without menus as they were all out. After a few minutes a server asked if we were sat by the hostess as if we had sat ourselves. After about 10 minutes the hostess brought us 1 menu and after about 5 minutes another server let us know he would be with us shortly. After another 15 minutes of no one coming to the table and watching the server tend to 2 more tables without anyone even offering us water we decided to leave.

We went for brunch. There were very few people as the resturant had just opened. We were seated on the patio with a beautiful view of the water. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. Food was good and they had large portions. Very good experience!

Great food, especially liked the crab cakes! Location is nice, lots of outdoor seating, and in a busy waterfront location - people will be walking by and scoping your dining options. Overall, very enjoyable. Reservations on weekend help, tough to get same day.

Crab cakes! Two huge crab cakes were the highlight of lunch on the waterfront. Comes with a nice side salad of simple arugula and cherry tomato, but made a full meal by adding French fries. The crab cakes were very tasty, fries crispy, nice cold beer, great service, made for a perfect midweek lunch break.

Went for brunch over labor day weekend. We ordered fish and chips, the burger, breakfast burrito and waffles. Food came out cold, we sent the fish and chips back and they re fried the same food and it still came out luke warm and hard. Our waiter was great but they were understaffed and he was waiting on everyone. Great view of the water and people watching but food not great and service slow.

Service was slow. An hour and a half before we got our food from our reservation time.Thats crazy talk. Took 25 mins to order drinks. Normally I would've left after that wait but literally no where else was open in the area. The food was ok when it finally got there but def not worth the wait. Bummer bc the location is amazing.

We were a group of 3, celebrating a friend’s birthday.
1. Worst service I ever received - I think our mistake was going to the restaurant with 8:30pm reservation. My point being we should not have gone that late. Our water glasses were filled only the first time after we got seated. No refills for water. No one would wait on us. But again if the servers are not ready to wait on someone that late it would only be fair for the restaurant management to not make reservation option available at that hour!
2. While making the reservation I made enquiry about what special is done if we are celebrating someone’s birthday. We were told that the person celebrating birthday would be given a dessert at the end of the meal. But that never came. I did remind the server at the start of the meal that we are celebrating my friend’s birthday. At the end when the dessert didn’t come, I felt too awkward to remind the server again
3. I have a mixed response here.....There was a mistake with the order. One of us got crab cake while something else was ordered. We were glad about this mistake for two reasons. We got to taste crab cake... free of cost. We all agreed that their crab cake was the best. I recommend it.
4. Even when I called (on phone) the restaurant receptionist after making reservations to get clarification on few questions.... the person at the other end was so much in hurry to get done with the call. I felt as if I am forcing that person to talk to me :(
