    I expect more polished service from the Claremont. They we over booked. We had a reservation and were seated quickly, but served slowly. It was 45 min before we got our food and another 40 min. Before they checked on us. I was going to order more drinks but we were tired and done with the slow service. And the dining room was crowded and so loud. Overall unpleasant experience.

    Service was fantastic but that cant make up for the food. Scallops were good but underwhelming but pork was severely undercooked and poor cut. We returned it and the replacement was still undercooked and covered in fat and gristle. Amateur mistake. For such a limited menu and the $, that should not be happening.

    Although the view is extraordinary, many of the outside tables do not have umbrellas any longer and the sun is simply too hot and uncomfortable. In addition, the food was third rate. And for the price it certainly was not worth it. In the past I’ve eaten here and the food was quite unique and delicious, this was not the case this time. Overpriced inflated hotel pricing and not very interesting offerings, we ordered bread to go with our chicken salad and it was white bread that was toasted. They did take that off the check, but still it just was not a very satisfying a meal especially when the price was so inflated. Two drinks, two salads and two coffees came to $115 before tip. And we went away hungry.

    Excellent staff and cooks. Sunset on outside deck is beautiful, but suggest hat or sun visor, and something warm when it cools down at dusk. They will provide a blanket for you if needed.

    This place is a gem! We love sitting outside on the patio on a nice day. The view is outstanding and the food is delicious. The menu has something to offer everyone with a nice wine selection and other beverage choices. This was our third time here and we will definitely be back! After our meal, we love to browse the beautiful and historic hotel.

    We had a window seat for three with a spectacular view of the skyline across the bay from us. Mario came over and greeted us. He had a great blend of personality, wit, charm, and attentiveness without being intrusive. We shared the salad, grilled asparagus, maitake (mushroom), and fried rockfish (be careful to order the hot sauce on the side!) as starters. Super delicious! Then we had the diver scallops and ribeye steak. I highly recommend the scallops; the steak did have a smoky flavor which our daughter did not like. For dessert, we shared the apple crisp and the lemon tart- both delicious. I would ask for a la mode on the crisp: we did! Yes, we did have leftovers which our college daughter scooped up! OK, one thing that could have been a bit better. I mentioned in my reservation and when being seated that it was my husband's birthday: there should have been a candle or some acknowledgement of this. Tiny bit disappointed. Also, at one point it became super noisy inside the restaurant where we had to almost shout. But, otherwise really great. The view was so lovely...sigh.

    Received raw steaks that had to be sent back and re-cooked. When we finally received our entrées, they were just sloppily put onto the plate and missing most of the sides.

    The Mushroom omlete that I had wasn't worth the price paid. There wasn't much taste, I didn't like the cream inside it, I was expecting mushrooms and only got a few on top, Disappointing. My husband had the burger and said it was just a generic burger, he liked the fries. The view was great, no complaints with the staff or the atmosphere. I would only recommend Limewood for the view and not the food.

    I am a regular at The Claremont. The service is truly outstanding. Prices seem higher I guess because of inflation and that hotel padded pricing on food. The oysters are the absolute best. Portions are large and the kitchen is accommodating to some requests. This is my go to place to meet with girlfriends and a romantic date.

    The outside patio only has a couple of umbrellas which means if you want to sit on the patio, you will be under direct sunlight. We came in to avoid the sun. Unfortunately, there was SO MUCH smoke, etc coming from the kitchen that I could barely breathe and my eyes were watering. We asked to move and the waiter was very very nice about it which we appreciated. I’ve been here couple of times and the service is really great.
