The chef Jesse was very gracious with his time - explaining the menu, his experience and cooking techniques. The "Thor's Hammer Cut" Jesse recommended was very good and the prime rib was amazing. Will definitely go back again, our entire group was very impressed with the food and setting.

We ordered a French dip sandwich and chicken club. The Beef in the French dip was full of fat and chewy and dry. The chicken club had three layers of bread and not much chicken. Tomatoe was too thick. Our server was so nice and awesome. We have had the steak here before and it was full of white solid fat. For the price it was not acceptable.

We celebrated our anniversary, and we were treated to a bubbly toast and a dessert, which was really so generous. We would hightly recommend this to friends and family and we will definitely return.

Food was top notch and service impeccable. We had just gotten off a delayed flight and the kitchen was kind enough to accommodate us even though they were close to closing for the day and we were able to take our time. Jeremiah is a great server and Sean, the manager, wanted to make sure we were comfortable and happy while Shae the hostess gave us leeway on our arrival time.

Our server moved us to a quieter location but it was no better. However, the food and service were excellent.

He studies the menu & has never disappointed with our taste preferences. We celebrated my husband birthday and like I always say, this was the best visit to date.

I wanted to love it all, but walked away disappointed. Service was wonderful, as was the apple pie, croissant, and my husband's filet, but my steak and the carrots from the grill were not good. I'll stick to appetizers and vegetables next time.

Food is fantastic and imaginative. Tina Turner and 1970s music blaring through the speakers during dinner was the least fun part. Meeting and talking with Richard Blais was the most fun part - almost as good as the actual food itself. Such a great menu - my only suggestion would be to increase choices on wines by the glass. The new items on the menu this month were all so very much worth the return visit.

This place is such a breath of fresh air for North County! (especially since West never reopened after Covid). We were seated on the patio overlooking the lagoon as the full moon came up. We started with drinks and the craft cocktails here are on point. Classic martinis, old fashioned, and gimlets, as well as the signature smokey mezcal drink with the table side presentation were all awesome. For starters we shared the squash blossoms, the dates, and the fried onion...all were fabulous. For dinner we all ordered an assortment of steaks. The smoke pit bbq grill was set up outside on the far end of the patio and the smells wafting towards us were irresistible. One couple shared the tomahawk cut, another shared the boneless ribeye bordelaise, and another had the NY strip. We all enjoyed tasting the different preparations. For sides we shared the pureed potatoes, corn creme brulee. the fresh peas, and the gingered greens. Everything was SO good and arrived with lovely presentations, garnished with edible flowers, etc. The bottle of Kissler pinot noir was a perfect accompaniment to our meal. We were too full for dessert, but will save room for our next visit. Service was warm and attentive. Can't wait to go back!

We had a lovely, quiet table on the patio, overlooking the lush golf course, and the beautiful lagoon, just before sunset. The view and ambience were incredible. Our server, Jenna was extremely friendly and attentive the entire time. The appetizers were delicious. My wife said the scallops were like butter. I had the ribeye steak, and I can say it was one of the best I had had. Our experience was incredible, and we look forward to coming back soon.

We eventually got better service from the bartender. The food was very good once we got over the frustration of the bad service. I was expecting more from a restart of this level.

The food was good. we sat outside, i can understand complaints about noise inside when crowded. Yes its expensive, its the golf course at the Park Hyatt what would you expect. My filet was butterflied, unusual, but it was cooked right. Tender to cut with a butter knife. Oh yes, you get to choose the knife you want use from a display rack. Kinda cool, makes meal more interesting. Had the Avocado stuffed with crabmeat appetizer , its exactly that. (a splurge). Desert was the Carrot cake, and they offered a free banana split to celebrate our anniversary. I would return if staying at the hotel, no question.

However, we were terribly disappointed during our most recent visit. We did start off with the lobster knuckle sandwich which was quite good (we split between the 3 of us). However, the French dip sandwich, which my friend recommended as one of the best around, was mediocre at best. My friend was truly disappointed as well. There was nothing special about the sliced beef (and it actually tasted like it had been around awhile; not fresh). The French fries seemed to be from the bottom of the basket. Small pieces and EXTREMELY oily. The whole meal was very disappointing and very unlike our previous visits. What happened?

We thought they might get a Michelin recommendation. Went for “meatless Monday” with several vegetarian friends who have never been, for a birthday dinner, left underwhelmed by the lack of seasoning and overly greasy food. The only veg entree (eggplant) was small and lacked flavor. Veg sides (got all the ones without meat) were disappointing. Not sure if it’s changed over the last couple months, but food-wise was a completely different experience. Service however was impeccable as always.
