Beautiful atmosphere, amazing food and preparation, delightful servers and staff. My only complaint is that servers kept coming by to clear the table and dishes before I was finished. It got a bit annoying and I felt rushed. I had to tell them 3x that I’m still eating. They need to take a hint from the Europeans and let patrons enjoy their meals. Regardless, I strongly recommend the place for a lovely family dinner or special occasion,

The waitress was extremely inattentive and literally threw down the utensils and food plates. Don’t know if she was overworked. Kitchen was slow and the dishes were edible but nothing to write home about. The combination of bad waitress, slow food and ordinary tasting food made this experience forgettable. It is unfortunate Westin has this kind of restaurant in their facility.

We paid $385 for dinner and ended up sick all night. We were staying in a condo and fighting over the restroom all night. The service was slow and not very friendly. The only good thing I can say about this place is the view was amazing. Other then that, bleh. The taste of the food was just ok .

This was my second time at this restaurant. Very nice ocean view. Waited over an hour and 15 mins for dinners to arrived. Our waiter Dough had to apologized twice for the delay. I ordered Ahi Tuna which I sent back due to inappropriate temperature, unappealing steam vegetable and some kind of rice. Very unacceptable plate presentation. Less than a minute later, Dough brought another plate which he said it was someone else’s plate and this was verified by the manager when she came by to the table.

The views were amazing. However both meals were luke warm and dry. We had a flatbread and the short ribs.
The server came to take our order and then dessert and brought the bill.
No checking and asking about the food or checking for more drinks.

Took forever to get salad. Diner plates arrived in waves. First plate cam 10 minutes before last plate. Very expensive for a overwhelmingly mediocre experience. Go somewhere else

Lousy service! Waiter basically ignored us. Gave us bread without plates. We both had Shish kebab. Meat and fish was fine but sauce with it led to me having an upset stomach all night. Flatbread was dry and had hardly had any cheese or tomatoes on it. Place was overpriced.

Just don’t go. The Mediterranean cuisine is bland and under seasoned. If you have been anywhere like Italy, Spain or Greece you will find this an utter disappointment. The only saving grace are the servers- who will make those of us from the mainland of Caucasian descent think about perpetuating culinary colonialism in the 21st century

Our dinner was great! The server (John Aaron) was busy but attentive and thoughtful. The food was delicious and even though I was disappointed they were out of the Wild Boar Ragu, the scallops did not disappoint. The kei kei menu was good as well. We were exhausted from traveling but dinner was a great ending to our day.

The restaurant was recommended by an employee of our hotel. It is open air seating, which would normally be great, but that night it was too cool and windy to eat outside. Unfortunately, the entree I desired wasn’t available, and the fresh catch was some scallop and lobster combo, which usually means nothing came in that morning. The mushroom risotto was an excellent substitute, however. Very rich! My companion liked his paella also. Our waiter, Doug, did try to move the kitchen along, as we had read that they tend to be slow. The architecture of the restaurant, and the hotel in general, is stunning, so the ambience—except for the outdoor temperature—was very pleasant.

This place was amazing! Got a table at 6:15 and watched the sunset. Right when we sat down, we got bread and water right away. Our server was a kind older lady. She was so attentive and loved describing the dishes to us. She made us so excited to eat there! We started with the Wild Ahi Crudo and it was a nice light appetizer. My husband got the Paella Mixta and I got Seared Scallops. They were amazing!! I wish I had a second stomach to order another plate of Seared Scallops. The fried noodles it came with was the highlight of the dish. The paella was amazing too! Nice smokiness in the rice and had plenty of shrimp and chicken. We had the Spanish Cheesecake for dessert and it was nice and fluffy. It also came with edible flowers which didn't taste like much but cool that it was edible. I would recommend this place!

This is our second time at this restaurant for my spouse’s birthday. 1st time was 3 years ago and we had a great experience. This time was very disappointing. Prices are high and we would accept that but high prices should reflect excellent service and great food. Our server was clearly inexperienced and made zero suggestions. To the point that we ordered sides that already came with our meal but she didn’t detour us from making the mistake. She also didn’t ask me if I wanted the Branzino deboned and I spent all my time trying not to swallow the small invisible bones and finally gave up on my meal. I had heard the pork chop was great from other reviews and my husband ordered it. It was dry, tasteless and something you would expect from Denny’s. This was not the culinary experience we were expecting to have, the best part of the meal was the cheese cake.

We reserved a table which required credit card. Seemed odd but I did it anyways. Don’t recall seeing any notification about cancellation fees. We almost went to another restaurant but when I called they said there would be a $50 cancellation fee. If you are a no show, it’s $50 a head on your reservation. So, we went there anyways. Food quality was pretty good. We had the Mahi, and the Short ribs. Wait staff seemed new to the job which was OK. They were pleasant.
Overall I would recommend the restaurant. Just be aware of the fees if there is any chance you would need to cancel.
