Excellent. Best seafood in the valley
Oh my gosh, that was the most wonderful brunch EVER!!!! My husband loves shellfish and he was in Heaven. I love champagne, so I was in Heaven. The desserts were to die for, the omlette was light and fluffy, a variety of food to choose from other than the seafood as well. I was plenty full when we left. We will definitely be back.
Everything was perfect. The food was delicious.
I had an awful experience!!! I was really excited to go there for VALENTINE'S day but there wasn't much to choose from for me I wanted a steak with mashed potatoes and they didn't have any mashed potatoes I said fine I'll get my steak just just barbecue and the lady said there is no barbecue when I've been there before and they've gotten barbecue sauce for me from another restaurant and this serve didn't want to do that for me so I was really disappointed because I didn't know what to order anymore and plus our server was really rude!!
Valentines duet meal was all about quality not quantity. Check in was fast with reservations, server had to be prompted often but yet he was accommodating. Overall top notch dinner.
Very friendly staff
Hostess was extremely friendly went out of her way to seat us in a booth. Our waitress recommended our dinner which was delicious, very attentive. Thank all of you for making our Valentines Day special.
Amazingly decadent brunch. From caviar to king crab, from truffled potatoes to the steak and lamb carving station, and all the way to the Grand Mariner crepes, everything was elevated and flavorful. For the price you can't find a better brunch anywhere. Make reservations, they fill up.
There brunch is awesome the freshest seafood you can eat. Excellent sushi and fabulous desserts. I don’t even make it to the breakfast side of the brunch. This is definitely the best brunch in the valley.
I love Italian food and this is one of my favorite places to get it!
I was not very pleased with the food...my boyfriend had a very small portion of chicken Alfredo that he claims the chicken was very bland. I had the pesto pasta which was a very large amount of food, but was not at all to my satisfaction, the sauce was way to thick and could not get myself to eat it but i did enjoy the chicken that was in the dish. I left almost all the pasta and was asked if I wanted it to go...I declined. The calamari that we had for an appetizer was very good. It’s a good thing I was able to fill up on that or I would have been very unhappy. Sad to say I will not be coming back.
Second visit, enjoy the view and selection. Just diverse enough and not too big. Sushi station is good, caviar station is wonderful, raw bar too. Those mashed potatoes with truffle oil are delicious. It's a nice adult atmosphere, grateful for now screaming or rambunctious children around. The included Bellini is very good, they use sparkling wine, orange juice and a dash of peach schnapps. Will be going back.
Very nice, comfortable restaurant with delicious food and great, affordable wine list. The only negative is the bar is noisy and some of it filters into the dining area. We seated far away and so it was ok. I will certainly frequent the restaurant and look forward to our next visit.
We have been serval times always good ... love the shrimp and king crab 🦀...keep up the good work. We are from Bass Lake and La selva beach 🏖
We did not expect the amazing quality of this food. Everything was exceptional. This is a beautiful, upscale, quiet place to have a wonderful buffet. The service and food were top notch. I am unable to list a single flaw or complaint. We will be back!
Delicious dinner as always! Our waiter Patrick was attentive! Date night here is simply romantic!
Patrick was great as usual.
The appetizers were cold when served the main course that had lobster was chewy and the veal was also chewy
We come there to have a nice dinner when we’re in town visiting our parents.
This was the best birthday dinner! They brought out balloons and all for my special day. They really do care about offering the best level of service and quality of food to everyone.
Probably the best restaurant at Chukchansi. Chef Eli made one of the best Caesar Salads my wife and I have ever had. Great views. Great service by Laura. Highly recommended!
Great food, terrific view and awesome service!! The selection is absolutely incredible!! Loved every moment of it!!
We love Nativos sunday brunch the quality of the food and seafood is amazing!! If you love shrimp and king crab you are in for a treat.
The Fried Calamari, Prawns, Artichoke Hearts, Garlic, Pepperoncini & Cipollini with Tarragon Caper Aioli & Marinara Sauce was excellent!! Perfect crispness with moist tenderness on the inside melted in your mouth. The fast and entertaining service was the highlight of the night!! She made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. We'd highly recommend that you request Laura Y. when ever you go. A+ to her and the cooking.
My favorite place for Brunch, it never disappoints!
Excellent Food! Excellent Staff! Excellent Service! A definite must try.
True Italian with great wine specials! Ambiance is intimate. Experience was wonderful!
My server, Patrick, was just fabulous, as always. When I am there I ask for him.
Veal Parmagiana is excellent. Chop is huge. Suggest 2 people split. Plenty of food. Ambience, decor, service, all excellent. A dinner treat for adults who care to have an actual conversation. But if you have young adults, ok too!
Delicious dinner and they made our anniversary very special with rose petals on the table and a fabulous dessert!
Nativos was excellent! Ask for Jaime as your server, she is the best! Will be returning soon.
Sunday buffet was excellent, for the price you get your money's worth, many types of seafood, caviar, sushi, meats, omlets made to order, desserts. Staff was excellent, Brent the waiter made sure we had everything, Heather the manager even came by and made sure everything is perfect. Definitely a must for the best buffet around.
Great service and better food will be going back a lot
Calamary was excellent, finally someone knows how to make it right, it was so tender it melted in your mouth, my lasagna was superb , wife's clams we're a little tough, Heather the manager emeaditly replaced it, her chicken dish was excellent, Jaimie our waitress was excellent and did a superb job, A+ to them
We had dinner at Navitos to celebrate my mom’s retirement and we are so happy we did! Our server, Jamie, was so attentive without being overbearing. We had the calamari for appetizer and honestly, I have never tasted such a tender calamari in my life! Our entrees were equally delicious- my mom had the shrimp scampi pasta, my dad and I had the Zuppa de Pesce and my daughter had the grilled banzino- ALL were delicious!! We all had to taste and share with each other. The waitstaff took extra steps to make my mom feel so special. My parents live nearby and will definitely be returning in the future! They were so excited to find such a fine dining gem so close by! Well worth the short drive from Merced to Chukchansi!
We were very warmly welcomed as soon as we walked in. The service and food was beyond my expectations. The Vintage was over booked so this was our second choice, we’re very happy that the second choice was better than the first that evening. We will definitely be going back!
Service was bad, but the food was excellent. Hostess was not at post when we came for reservation. When the waiter came to take our order we had not even been given menus yet. We were a party of four but only had place settings for two. The food took a long time to arrive and when the waiter finally brought it out he was not giving the right plate to the correct person. My husband and daughters boyfriend literally had to switch there steaks with their own hands right in front of the waiter. He never offered to take the plates back and due a switch he just left line it wasn't his problem.
Once we all had the correct plates and we tasted the long awaited food it was delicious. We absolutely all loved our meals, just not the service that was provided. Its hard to say if i would come back or not. This is a pricey place to eat. I dont mind paying the price, bit i think the service needs to fit the price.
Rude waiter poor service. Too bad food was pretty good. We were there for brunch
We had an excellent brunch and can't wait to go back.
