The food was solid but fell short of excellence. The table was sticky - never okay in a high end restaurant but particularly not in COVID times.

The brunch menu is very short and the server enthusiastically recommended the sweet potato hash with duck confit. Unfortunately this dish fell short in presentation, preparation and taste. It was disappointing; the sweet potatoes were overcooked and mushy, the duck pieces were dry and tasteless, and the hollandaise sauce was meant to cover it all up.

Holiday gathering of gals. Uneven service, maybe to be expected with Covid. Smash burger- tasty…
Sparkling champagne cocktail a real hit!

Their brunch menu has a few good options, I had the Brussel sprouts salad it was good but dry, needed some dressing. My entire stay was highlighted by the excellent service I received from Angelina, and yes the view is very nice. Overall I give it two thumbs up!

This place was GORGEOUS!!! I had a ton of fun taking my parents here. I am currently using crutches and this was my first adventure out, so we wanted to make it special and enjoy a scenic drive with a scenic dinner view. This place was perfect. Parking was a snap. Making my way to the table wasn't too challenging, but took a bit of resolve. Upon entering, there was a wine/cocktail/beer trailer outdoors in front of the hotel/restaurant with lots of cozy fire pits etc. This would've been a fun pre/post dinner option! The staff members were wonderful and accommodating, sat us outside under heated lamps overlooking the Bay/Cityb of SF. I had the whole fish and my parents enjoyed the scallops. Both plates were delicious! The dessert menu was unique, it was hard to choose, but we went with the apple cake. So good. A few glasses of wine and the night was perfection. Definitely prepare to pay for the ambience etc. It was $$$ but worth it.

Dismal , pitiful service. If you don’t have enough capable staff then close off a portion of the restaurant. One waits 20 minutes for a menu then 20 min for an order to be taken and even longer for the food delivery-and they brought the wrong items. Actually the food is way above average. Noise level is disaster - it’s deafening and one can’t carry on a conversation.Hope they invest on carpeting and sound proofing.

Limewood is a favorite of mine. But for brunch today, the service was beyond amazing. I was meeting my son and his new fiancée. The staff treated everyone like VIPs and made sure everything was impeccable. Special thanks to Florentino, Sunny, and PJ.

Our waiter was wonderful--attentive, funny, informed. However, the noise, techno pop music, and a blaring TV over the bar, was definitely a turn off. We could hardly hear each other. It felt like being in an airport restaurant. The price of the entrees was way out of line with the quality of the food and the bar-like atmosphere. We had the scallops for $42, good, but it was a small dish. The pasta was just okay, $32. Probably won't go again. The whole place felt commercial and impersonal.

Gorgeous view, nice table out on the patio with effective heaters. Excellent cocktails and good service. Food was hit/miss. Our oysters didn’t taste fresh and the roasted cauliflower main was underwhelming, but fried chicken and desserts were quite good.

The service and the food were not good. My brunch was served cold. Cold pancakes with cold bacon and cold fried chicken. Our side of bacon never showed up. My latte did not have any milk in it, only espresso in a coffee cup. Our food was served and drinks showed up later and they forgot my friend’s orange juice. The price was first class but the food and service definitely were not. View great, as always.

So, obviously it’s a lovely setting, the service is excellent and the food choices I thought on the menu were acceptable. Here’s the problem: They simply do not give you enough food for the prices they are charging. Breakfast for four adults and one female teenager, with only one Mimosa, was $200 with the tip. That it is expensive I would be perfectly fine with, IF they gave you enough food. I got a formage omelette. It was served completely al a carte. Shouldn’t it come with a few potatoes or a small bowl of fruit? French toast was good, but again two slices of French toast! I mean would it really kill them to give you three slices? Is that going to lower their margin by that much? I don’t think you should leave breakfast hungry when you spend $40 a person.
