Had heard about Skyview and decided to give it a try. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be going back again. Wife had shrimp linguini and I had the chicken breast. Highly recommend the squash appetizer. I am not a squash person , but that squash with the pesto was fantastic. All servers were friendly and attentive . Definitely give it a try!

The food was really good my husband went for a classic burger, and I went for the vegetarian option, the mushrooms. Both very good choices. The only issue we had is that there was an special event taking place and due to that the service was very slow. Still, a very good experience.

This was my 2nd visit. The 1st visit was amazing, food very good 5 stars. This time, they
changed the menu slightly and took their pork tacos off and replaced with brisket tacos
which were pretty salty and not as good. Also, who ever made the the ice tea this time,
made it way too strong. You could have peeled paint. I couldn't finish it. Bummer!!

Menu a bit too limited. Hope once the pandemic is under better control and people feel more comfortable traveling and there are more customers, the menu will get more choices

Beautiful place! You do have to walk up a very steep hill but the views are worth it. We got there right at 4pm, Zach was amazing. He sat us promptly, checked in on us often and brought the food and drinks to us quickly.
Overall took about an hour from start to finish.
Defiantly recommend the cheese board!
We will be back and hopefully stay there as well!

This place is great for cocktails, but I felt the food was sub-par for the cost. The avocado toast had 3 tiny pieces of avocado and the toast was burnt, the toast for the salmon was dry and seemed stale. The service was good, everyone was nice, but there was definitely a long delay between courses during a time when the restaurant emptied out. It was a long enough delay that it made us wonder if they forgot about us.

Food was good, seasoned very well. portions were very small. Our servers were good but very under staffed. I think they were a bit overwhelmed. We had a good time and would definitely try again in hopes we caught them on an off weekend.

Went out for dinner on a random date night. We were pleasantly surprised for the cozy outdoor dining space. Adequate heat for a cold, windy night. Very clean, with prompt and attentive staff. Food was delicious. Small menu, but some great choices and good cocktails. Would love to visit again!

I've eaten here twice, the food was not to my liking my hubby also agrees with me. The chicken plate was too salty and the shrimp dish too... my husband has had the burger and steak and it lacks flavor. I have it a second chance since the ambience and view is worth it... will be back just for the cocktails those are good!

A colleague was doing business north of Santa Barbara and Los Alamos was a mid point. I’m searching the area Normans was a standout.
The quaint motel with this great restaurant was a bit of a surprise and Norman’s delivered.
Cocktails, food and service all excellent. The vibe is charming and the outdoor dining spot was great and perfectly heated.
Thank you!
