I always love Marisols but I will never go for a holiday again. They were out of items on the prefixed menu, our service took so long (30 minutes to get water). It was a very unfortunate experience.

Our reservation was at 12:15pm but we got there at 11:45 am and they were able to seat us early which was nice. The restaurant was pretty busy but it was not too loud, the view was great. We sat inside but next time would probably sit outdoors. The server was friendly and attentive but the service was very slow. We anticipated this due to it being Mother’s Day so it wasn’t a big deal but my kids were definitely getting antsy. Food was tasty, good portions. Overall we had a good time despite the wait, we would definitely return.

The service was good. We had Mother's Day brunch there and although we enjoyed the experience, the food was disappointing. My Benedict Bites were probably good when they were made, but they had sat for a while before they were served to me. They were cold. I was excited to try the halibut, as is is perhaps my favorite fish, but it was overcooked! It was dry. Again, I think the dish had sat too long under the warmers, but I'm just guessing. My mom's crab cakes were light on crab meat, but were OK. The desserts were pretty uninsipiring. For $200 for two people, I want to be wowed. The menu had lofty goals, but the execution was poor.

We arrived when you opened for 8:00am reservation for Sunday brunch 5/8/22. We left at 8:47am after still no food. If you’re going to charge a premium for a $65.00 per person prix fixe menu you should provide a premium service. It’s not acceptable to be your first guest when you open but make us wait on a chilly shaded patio for 45 minutes. The deal breaker is when you served food to a table that arrived AFTER us. Lots of good restaurants in Pismo. Never returning to Marisol.

It was our anniversary which I stated as a special occasion. It was never acknowledged by hostess or waiter. We were seated at a table which was very close to the table next to us and there was a family of 4,with 2 young children. They talked very loud and I felt like we were seated at the same table. We will try again in the future, we are locals.

We started out with the calamari and cheeseboard. Both good. Presentation on the cheeseboard was nice as well. My husband ordered the surf and turf and I ordered the pork osso bucco. My pork was nice and tender and my husbands steak was cooked perfectly. I love the way the restaurant looks inside. The decor and view is beautiful.

The shrimp cocktail was average, the Ahi tuna app was lacking in flavor. The Montecristo’s sandwich was not a Montecristo…it was a ham sandwich on cinnamon bread. While the meal was not bad, it was just not very special, especial for an Easter Brunch. Then, when compared to the price per person we paid, was just not worth it.

However, the food that we all chose was very good. The service was a tad slow, hard to catch a helper to ask for things. Other than that, all in all, it was a nice time.

One entree was fine, another was odd, and the third - how do you ruin filet mignon?Two of us had the caesar salad, and that's some of the wimpiest dressing we've seen. This dinner was like Goldilocks and the tree bears. We're still trying to find the "just right." For the money, we could have had two meals somewhere else with more consistent food and service. At least the birthday boy enjoyed his salmon.

The waiter was very friendly. I was a little bit disappointed because I told them it is the birthday of my daughter, so I expected a small surprise for her, but they did nothing 😕

Well, I'm here to say that you should absolutely consider Marisol for your dining experience when in the area. It's in a beautiful location along a breath taking coastal walk and just happens to be apart of The Cliffs Hotel and Spa. It's located right next to several hotels and very easy to get to. Not to mention, prices are fair and worth what you are getting in return! Where do I even begin? There are a few things I look for in a restaurant. Attentive servers, delicious food, and overall vibe/location. So, let's go down the list. 1. Service was impeccable, we were served by Crosby who gave us recommendations, check in on us, and made sure our experience was one to remember. He even offered me (8 months pregnant) a delicious mock-tail which I greatly appreciated. 2. Delicious food... need I say more? The menu has a variety of options but we chose the Brussel sprout starter and for our entrees we had The Cliffs Wagyu Burger & Pork Osso Bucco. We were both speechless after devouring the brussel sprouts, they had a perfect crunch and were sweet and savory. Personally, I had the Pork Osso Bucco and it fell off the bone as I enjoyed it with the mashed potatoes, mushrooms and the french onions... reminded me of the flavors you find in a French onion soup. My husband had the Wagyu Burger and commented on how juicy and flavorful the meat was. 3. The location happened to be right at our hotel (previously mentioned) which was convenient but that's not to down play it. It is beautiful inside and we were able to enjoy the sunset, walking along the coast before enjoying our meal. There are also options to sit outside, near a fireplace, and at the bar if that's what you're going for! Needless to say, our experience was nothing short of fantastic. The menu, staff and vibe blew us away. Here, you feel like family... here you feel full in more ways than one. Do yourself

We overheard them tell another waiting that by not ordering the 3 course special that our table was cheap. He was dismissive and frankly ruined the dining experience. The food was great however the ambiance was uncomfortable.

The dining room was quiet and inviting. We had a wonderful server and he let us enjoy our cocktails before we ordered dinner. My husband started with the clam chowder and I had the deviled eggs (too much for one - better sharing). My husband had a filet and ate all of it - a good sign and I had the salmon which was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would go back again when in Pismo.
