    We celebrated our anniversary here. The service was excellent, attentive but not over bearing. The food was superb. The evening was clear so the view was truely grand. They even delivered our dessert on a platter with the words happy anniversary spelled out in chocolate which was a nice touch.

    Was served medium to well done tenderloin instead of medium rare. The second time around it was close to rare. It was underwhelming for the price. Also, the tables were too close to each other for comfort.

    Went here for an anniversary and had an incredible time. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Drinks and food were DELICIOUS and they even surprised us with a “happy anniversary” dessert. Very special evening with incredible ambiance only fueled by the music they play (lots of Sinatra and incredible oldies that make you feel like a 1930’s Hollywood star).

    My wife and I spent a great time and enjoying our 25th anniversary here. We got a nice outdoor view seating with great food and services. The long mountain road diving and not enough parking space were the only down side of this trip.

    Poor quality overpriced wine, and the place tries really hard to give an exclusive ambience, but the patrons can be really trashy. The reason why I won't come back is the fact they messed up my food, brought out the side dish 15 mins after my filet, and didn't seem to worry about it much. Definitely not a premium dining experience.

    The service was wonderful. The drinks and appetizers were super yummy. My husband got the NY steak. Way over cooked and he was not happy with his $90 steak. He also got the twice baked potatoes. They were not twice backed. They were harder then a rock. I got the Market Fish. It was okay. Not the best fish I have ever had. Our guest got the Bolognese Pasta. They loved it! Would go back for the view, drinks and appetizers but that's about it.

    Used to be a good place, but not anymore, service was slow, food is not great. We alway go to this place for dinner. The prime rib has so much fat that we did not even enjoy it. 60% fat and has an after taste. I server didn’t took our over after 20 minutes of waiting. Drinks took 25 minutes to arrive. I would understand if the place was busy but it was not during the time we where there. Paying $300 for 2 with the kind of service we got seems not worth to go back to this place. I’d rather go somewhere else for a good steak and a good service.

    New York steak was good. Lobster was a little under cooked- hard to remove from the shell. Arriving at 630, the sun was right in our eyes for about 30-45 minutes making it hotter on a hot day! Luckily, the wait staff was really attentive to consistently refill our water glasses.

    Our visit this past Saturday was almost flawless! :-) * The host person greet us promptly and we were seated quickly at a table with great view that we requested. * Our waiter (Maxim) was attentive and knowledgeable in providing detail on menu items. The entries we picked that he recommended were delicious. * The almost part was sort of annoying as toward the end of our meal, other restaurant personnel came by a few times to ask if plates can be cleared, suggest that they noticed we slow down do we need anything else, etc... We know when we are asked to go. :-) We did ordered dessert to get them to stop as we want to sit a bit longer to see sunset.

    Overall an experience with the view, but honestly won't be coming back. We came here to celebrate my best friend and I birthday together in the month of September, In my reservation, I had mentioned we are celebrating our birthdays. There was a couple who was seated next to us probably a few minutes after and we felt like they got more attention and a faster pace service then we did with service. I understand maybe ours needed more time to cook, but it was an more than an hour in we're waiting without any updates, but they sang happy birthday to the couple and provide them with a small desert, while they brought to go boxes for us to take home and started packing our food after the delivery of our entree. I just felt like our birthdays celebration experience at the grand view was very much rushed. No one knew we were celebrating a birthday, but only cater to the people next to us... Perception is key, if you're going serve food to the people who sat down next to us 15 minutes later, you should consider giving the people physical next to them an update when our food will be coming when we have been waiting for 30+ minutes. For a fine dining experience I was very upset leaving Grandview, as it was our special night and felt like no one knew, even though we had mentioned it.

    Without question one of the most romantic restaurants in NorCal with the most incredible view you can imagine, night and day. Unique dishes in a first-class setting. Great service and drinks. The food was not quite as great as what you would expect for the price and the setting, however it was good. We will definitely be back - overall a wonderful experience.

    Food is good, not excellent as it should be for the price. Got sat at a wobbly table in a bad area, asked to ne moved to a different table was told it was reserved. (We has reservations too) Half hour later nobody was there so we asked again and got moved. Be careful what you ask for , we then could smell sewer off and on. Sunset and lights were pretty , service not great at all. Won't be going back. Capitola, Monterey or Carmel would be a better choice for the money.

    Everything was great with service, view and food. But when got white wine bottle, we were given jumbo wine glasses and wine was not served in the ice bucket to keep it cold. Later cocktail was not even full glass despite being a very small portion with big price. Worst was the strong sewer smell that hit our table twice, it was strong and we all couldn’t breath though we were in the open outdoor table. For our special occasion and highly priced I was expecting our evening to be perfect.

    Definitely not worth the money. It has a view and that's it. Supposedly the Chef was "famous" but the food was gross. The ceviche was half water. Double baked potatoes were not baked enough. Seafood pasta was absolutely gross. Steak was ok but for a $90 steak I expect better!

    My wife and I went here for our 5 year anniversary. The host called a few hours before our reservation to ask if we wanted a discounted bottle of wine waiting at our table. Such a nice touch. The sunset was beautiful. The food was outstanding. Our waiter, Marco, was wonderful and the manager checked in with us several times as well. We felt very well taken care of the entire experience.

    The drive up there is aggressive, so let’s start with that. Windy road on a drop side up. Thankfully it’s hillside on way down. What’s great about this place? The view. It stops there. Service started great but then rolled all the way downhill. Food is clunky and overdone. Amuse-bouche was a strange deep fried raviolo that had a weird texture on the pasta, and that basically set the tone for the rest of it. Arancini was ok. Fritelli I could have done without. Salad was a highlight at the time, but I can’t remember which one it was now. Angliotti pasta was dense and impossibly flavorless. The filling was like actual dog food and also oddly flavorless. Then the 22oz veal chop was just a hot mess of meat and cheese and sauce thrown together. It was a massive salt bomb. We couldn’t even eat it. Key lime pie was ok. Tiramisu custard actually tasted turned and our server just laughed when I said so. That’s not how that’s supposed to be. Bill came to about 550 with tip for 3 since we did a lot of sharing. So the price point isn’t horrible. But I also didn’t enjoy anything but the drinks and the delicious bread and dip that we got halfway through our meal (Odd timing, but glad it came. It’s the only thing I really ate). Took our leftovers to be nice. It all went down the disposal at home. Glad I tried it. Hard pressed to ever go back.
