    Marisol is a beautiful setting with a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. Food was good. Server Jason seemed new, needs more time on the floor but good intentions. Nachos were good, had Cobb w shrimp, so-so, pesto crusted halibut was good, mushroom snap peas risotto decent. Filet had same risotto, good. Took forever to get our bill paid. We will come try again.

    I so wanted to like this place, but the food was not properly cooked and the service was not as attentive as I had hoped. We sent one dish back and the burgers that we had ordered medium and medium rare both arrived well done. The breakfasts seem much better with better service.

    We chose Marisol for dinner after stopping for a cocktail the evening before. Great views, comfortable atmosphere, but our server Jason was the main reason for the return visit. We were not disappointed and we watched the sun set from a beautiful outdoor setting.

    Food was delicious! We had the hashbrown omelet, and it was yummy. Service was mediocre as the shift was changing.

    Worst drinks I have ever had. Half filled Martini and a Manhattan that had little or no bourbon and looked like dirty brown water.
