    Waiter did not know menu and $18.00 for distilled water, they make it seem like you have no choice. That and added fee for " living wages when average dinner for two with couple drinks each ( one of which was a beer ) over $350.00 for a nice view. with prices they charge there should be no living wage charge, let us determine tip which I'm guessing averages over 20% for most guests.

    We scheduled our reservation for an hour prior to when estimated sunset was and the timing was perfect. When you make reservation you can request your table location. We asked to be inside next to window and they were able to accommodate the request. The outside patio has roll down plastic curtain/windows so the view is a little blurred. I don’t know if they always have it rolled down or just on windy days. On the patio there are some tables right next to the railing/“window” and some along the side of the building. They have several heaters. Most people were sitting outside. On open table you can let them know ahead of time that you are celebrating something. I did get a call from them on the day of reservation and they offered a discount on champagne to have ready to drink when we arrived. Our server Max was awesome. He was very friendly and attentive. The other staff members were great as well. The garlic butter that came with the bread was garlic heavy and delish. The side of smashed Yukon potatoes were the best I’ve ever had anywhere. Prob could serve 2-4 people, but it was so good i could eat it all myself. Sea bass was good, but a bit heavy on the rosemary for me. Truffle Arancini was good but I probably wouldn’t order again. I’d rather try something else. Side of veggies was large and easily served 4. Agnolotti della Montagna was good, but next time I think I’ll try steak or chicken with just the potatoes. They did give a small dessert sample of the bread pudding for the “celebration”. Lovely place and would visit again.

    Food and drinks were excellent, but, overpriced. Service from Maxim and others was excellent. Valley view was obstructed by plastic sheeting. A big reason we went to the restaurant was because of the view, so that was a disappointment.

    I came here to celebrate my anniversary and was looking forward to the experience after hearing good things from a couple of friends. We were promptly seated upon arrival with a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us. Our waiter greeted us and things started out strong, but after our orders were taken, we never saw our waiter again. We waited forever to get our drinks (including waters) refilled once. We noticed the waiter serving other tables and asking if they needed anything, but we never got the same level of service. When our food arrived, no one asked if we were enjoying it or needed anything else. We waited 20 minutes before finally telling a kind woman that we never received the vegetables we ordered, but at that point we didn’t want to wait any longer. We ordered their Chicken and Ravioli dishes. The dishes were enjoyable. Our view during the entire meal was gorgeous and I’m very appreciative for our table placement. All guests were sitting out on the patio area, so it was quite noisy, but we didn’t mind. At the end of it all, I wouldn’t go back again. The level of service was the lowest I’ve ever experienced and unfortunately happened on a very special day for my partner and I. My partner and I had to share our drinks to survive that meal.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. It was also our first time going to Grand View. The drive to the restaurant is a bit windy and right away you start to climb where you can see a Begin to overlook the city. I highly recommend the driver does not drink alcohol since the road is pretty narrow. Our reservations was at 5:15 PM but we were able to get our table a bit earlier. We had great service and an awesome view of the city and bay. Even with the clouds it was still beautiful. There were heat lamps that were turned on when we needed them. The chef gave each of the tables some type of delicious crouton with sauce while we ordered our food. We decided to share a couple of the appetizers, a Kobe steak, side of potatoes and a dessert. Our total for the dinner was about $220 including tip. We did not have drinks. The steak was excellent! Every piece of our meal tasted delicious. Friendly and helpful staff was a bonus. I’ve recommended the restaurant to family and friends already. I would return for another special occasion, may be to see the view at night with the city lights.

    Food was terrible. I had to send back my "50oz" filet minon because it was overcooked and i got it back again and this time it was undercooked. I just ate it because if i knew if i sent it back another time, they would just overcook it yet again. It was literally a 10oz steak but advertised on their menu as 50oz, and their lobster tail was a little larger than a "big" shrimp. My meal was NOT work $120 - it was also just super saturated with sauces. And they also made my steak appear larger by stacking in on top of a potato patty. My boyfriends steak was literally half fat. Just the worse experience, and it ruined my planned dinner date for a special event for him. Never going here again and I DO NOT recommend. This place is a waste of money. I paid $305 in total, I was definitely taken advantage of. Yes sure the view is beautiful. But just pack a picnic and drive up to Sierra and you'll get that view and better food. And save yourself a crap ton of money. They also charge a "living wage fee" like okay dude - like your food isn't expensive enough. This place is a joke, pathetic.

    It was a beautiful view and ambient. Servers were very respectful, however our server didn’t really give us more options for dessert or food. I asked about the coffee service and he said they had none. I had just seen a whole platter being served to a party. He gave me two dessert choices whereas other tables had other dessert foods. Food was bland as expected but some level of taste is expected. Vegetables were good but almost raw, only dish that was good was the potatoes. Everyone got the complimentary bread , we received none. Overall, wouldn’t recommend or return here

    First time here May 31st 2022. Had a friend date, started with two glasses of Dom Pérignon and caviar. Perfect way to begin a meal:). Then over the next 3hours we did our own coursed out dinner and had an absolutely wonderful time. I can't remember our servers name but she was very professional, friendly and did a wonderful job. I am very much looking forward to coming back.

    We've lived in the South Bay for 20 years and never knew about this place! We went there to celebrate our anniversay and had a beautiful dinner. The prime rib was excellent, oysters were delicious, the special ravioli were exemplary, as was the kale salad. Maximillion (I believe this was his name) was our waiter and provided excellent recommendations. I highly recommend this place! We will definitely go back.

    We go every year to celebrate our anniversary or someone's birthday. Food is fresh from their own farm. Good drinks and wines. Its an high end restaurant, very expensive, but this time we felt it. Compared to last year the prices are gone up. But will go again for the view,food,ambience and everything.

    We've been here three times over several years. Recently we went twice in about a year. The first time we came was many years ago. It was more of a steak type restaurant at the time. I got Veal and cooked (medium) at the recommendation at waiter, and I received a well done version. So we ended up having to send it back, and basically my wife and I had to share 1 entre, and then the other. The food was fine but not great, but it ruined the experience. Late last year 2021, we went again for appetizers since the view is wonderful and there was outdoor seating. We were told that a new Chef was hired and his specialty was pastas, so we went from a light dinner on appetizers to a full blow dinner, 3 courses etc, and it was FANTASTIC. Pastas were great, and the whole farm to table items were great. It was expensive but worth it. The server was so welcoming, nice, and willing to engage with us about the food and chit chat. Service was really good. In May 2022, we went back again, with our 7 year old daughter, a make up Mother's day dinner. This time it was okay, but quite expensive. A couple of things didn't work out as well. First, there was broken glass under the table. They cleaned it on request, but left some pieces around. Second, I think they were short table staff, drinks and food service timing were extended or mistimed. Third, the past dish we got was quite undercooked, the flavors were great, but biting into a hard (not al dente) filled pasta wasn't enjoyable. That being said, we'll probably give it one last chance and then make a decision if we'd come back again. If it were like our 2nd visit, we'd like to make this a regular restaurant on our good food rotation. Hopefully it's not like our last visit.

    Overpriced. I would expect more for $200 tasting menu per person. Service is terrible. No water was served during the meal. Waited forever for the dishes. Sunset is OK but the ugly shade blocks everything.
