    Me and my husband came for my birthday and the service was poor nobody came to refill our drinks not much variety on food I don't eat seafood so there was not much of anything not even salad bar nor veggies. For the price of $59.99 it was awful.

    Overall the food was excellent and they use quality ingredients. The Creme Brulee was not set all the way so rather runny. Omlets would be better if the vegies were sautéed prior to adding the eggs to the pan. Bagels not the best. Otherwise all the food items were excellent! Server was very personable but between him and the buss staff the dirty dishes piled up on our table. Overall we enjoyed it and will be going again!

    Our reservation was at 12 pm. We got there 30-40 mins early and checked in. We were told to wait until 12 pm to be seated. When we got seated, we noticed that there were a few open tables and it wasn't as busy. They could have checked us in a little sooner, but oh well. Our server didn't come and greet us right away. It was a little after we got our food the first round while my husband waited for us that she came and got us our drinks. She checked in here and there to ask if we were still doing ok...nothing else... She didn't seem personable or friendly...just a job she was doing... The food was ok, but I was expecting a little more fancy food since we were paying $60 per person. The sushi was a disappointment. Not a whole lot of variety of sushi; just plain and simple sushi you can get from your local supermarket. Caviar and waffles ran out so my husband didn't get to eat it...hence it closes at 2:30 pm and it was around 1 pm by that time... desserts were good...seems like they spent more time planning for desserts than the food in itself.

    We went for brunch seafood portion was adequate and we were served generous portions regarding seafood and deserts. The hot side which was made to order omelettes which was unorganized and confusing I received someone else’s food the food prep staff were confused and became upset when I told them that that’s not what I ordered. Really sad for the price you pay. Wait staff were very personable and friendly the cook staff on hot side so unprofessional.

    Food was not the greatest and not a whole lot of options for the price of $59. The dessert bar was my favorite though, but still not worth the price. Every single one of the staff members we dealt with, were very friendly and provided great customer service.

    Potential is there. Offering of food items were not as extensive as described. Beautiful views, however we were placed in a booth in back corner by service stations and no views. For the price it was not a great experience.

    The Nativo's experience usually never disappoints. The Thanksgiving buffet was delightful however , the heat of the sides were not kept at a temperature expected in a buffet. The salmon and sauce were on point and kept at a higher heat than others. The pineapple ham was a big disappointment , it was very salty and luke warm. The server was gracious and concerned over the salty ham. The deserts were wonderful and unigue from their regular dessert offerings. Mathew was not present and we missed his presence . He makes the experience a good one at every visit. One needs a holiday , right? We will return and look forward to our table friend and server and menu :-)

    We came for Thanksgiving. Good news/bad news. GOOD: The turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad, salad dressing, rolls, antipasto, pumpkin ravioli and desserts were outstanding! Excellent! What I would expect from a fine dining restaurant. BAD: The ham was very salty. The candied yams were mushy - looked, smelled and tasted like they were canned. The cranberry sauce also tasted canned. For an average cook, this would be no big deal. However, with all of the farmland in Fresno County, one would expect your Chef to appreciate the quality of fresh produce. Speaking of which, the green bean casserole did taste fresh, however the sauce was very thin and watery with very little onions. As for the stuffing, it tasted like “quick and easy” Stove Top, or maybe Mrs. Cubbison’s. Again, for an average home cook, it’s okay. I expect more from an Executive Chef. The butternut squash soup was grainy and bland. One more thing… for a fine Italian restaurant, I was shocked to see pre-made, packaged tiramisu. On the bright side, the portions from the carving station were generous. The decor was lovely and everyone, particularly our server Savannah, was friendly, professional, attentive and just great. I understand that an ordinarily gourmet Italian restaurant doesn’t exactly specialize in a Traditional American thanksgiving meal, but if I might make a suggestion, homemade cranberry sauce is cheap and easy to make. Add a little orange zest for some pizzazz! Instead of canned candied yams, just bake up fresh yams cut them in half, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Mrs. Cubbisons make a good cornbread stuffing - crumble in some sausages and pecans or pine nuts for a real gourmet side dish. Prime rib or roast beef instead of the salmon (which didn’t appear to be very popular from what I observed.) Overall, there’s more good than bad, but room for improvement, in my opinion. Hope to spend Thanksgiving with you again next year!

    Thanksgiving buffet was salty, cold and tasteless. Presentation was not what you would expect from this restaurant, the staff was very professional and pleasant. Seating was cramped but sunlight from setting sun was blaring with no thought of lowering the shades making it hot and way too bright. Salad bar was a joke unless you like just tomatoes , large chunks of parmesan cheese, and a toss in of old olives on your plate.

    Service was great. Even the section with sushi was amazing, he made a couple rolls for our group that is picky about sushi and it was such a nice touch. I don't know what was on the waffles but it was the best I have ever had. Seafood was the main draw for us and that was really good as well.

    The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 for food, was just that there were not any salads offered. I just feel for the price there should have been a few salads. There was plenty of fresh fruit items and marinated mozzarella balls and tomatoes. Overall the food was really very good and if good quality. I had the extra large beautiful fresh shrimp and crab, which were delicious. Basic omelets were made to order and very good. Their sausage links were outstanding. I also had a slice of prime rib that was pretty good. My drink was a cranberry mimosa that was okay. No garnish just the mimosa. I had the banana fosters crepe with vanilla ice cream. I think the ice cream was homemade. It was pretty good. 4 stars was given rather than 5 for the value/price. I think a $49 price rather than $59 would be more appropriate for this smaller buffet. The restaurant was very nice and some seating outside to enjoy the beautiful view was available. I would return again for a special occasion.

    The Tiramisu Martini was delicious. The Pappardelle Bolgonese was also delicious and served nice and hot. The Chicken Parmesan was overcooked and the Capellini was drenched in Marinara and it was barely warm! And, the rolls were stale! Our server Nicolas was great. William, the bartender was also great. Did not care for the jazzy music.
