    Been coming here for years and after last night, we won't be back. Too expensive to not be good quality. Service wasn't very good- like non-existent. We brought two of our friends and part way through dinner, my friend said to us, I hate to say it, but the food is so bad. We looked around and both tables around us left most of their $30 lobster rolls uneaten and we did, too. Our bill was $230- I didn't have an entrée, my friend didn't drink. Feels more like a tourist trap. Really disappointed. You can't charge a premium and then not deliver on quality. All four of us said we won't be back.

    Being there several times, the view outdoor is absolutely stunning for the sunset. Last visit tables were all full and service were compromised as they were all too busy, we have to wait for longer time for our dishes but won’t mind sitting there longer, the puzzle part was always the quantity of the dishes, this was more like a bar place than a restaurant, the chef was trying to be creative but each dish vary a lot, some were too big, some were too small, very hard to predict unless you try more.

    Pretty gourmet food, esp for mega-casual PB &amp; beachside PB. Maybe a tad too much salt &amp; pepper on the meats, otherwise all pretty good &amp; delish. The carrot cake def A+, one sorbet had a odd “fishy” smell &amp; flavor…?

    Worst service I’ve ever received. We had reservations and were sat immediately, but did not receive service for 15 mins. The table was absolutely disgusting and sticky and the chairs looked like they’d never been cleaned. Our waiter, Josh, only came to our table twice and barely spoke two words—mostly communicated in grunts. The rest of the staff that brought our food and drinks pretty aggressively dropped it off at our table without a word.

    All the personnel were friendly and helpful. The menu was limited. If sushi is your thing, it was fine. However, it’s advertised as a surf and turf restaurant and there were few fish entrees offered.

    Beautiful restaurant. Food was average. Nothing to rave about. Server & staff , friendly & attentive at the start but at end of meal we were trying to get our check. We were in timed pay lots. We had difficulty getting the check to so we could cash out. It was definitely busy when we arrived but calmed by finish of our meals.

    We ate outside on the main patio. People watching was fun but it was a bit hot out at 5:30p. The staff tried to give us some shade but there was only so much they could do. I had the short ribs and my wife had the lobster risotto. Both were very good. My short ribs had more of a beef stew texture but fortunately, I like stew meat. We spent about $200 for the evening, had a nice time and would go back if we were ever in the area again. Speaking of the area... this restaurant is directly across from the pacific ocean and perfect for the sunset. We were a bit early for that but experienced a wonderful sunset just a few miles south. Would love to have watched it while eating... next time we will plan ahead and book our reservations further in advance. JC

    Was not very busy as we stopped in for late lunch on a weekday. The mussel plate was excellent as were the oysters. We had a tuna roll that was excellent. View is excellent as well. I great experience overall.
