    I made a reservation but and when I arrived no one was there. I stood at the host stand and someone from the bar said that someone would be right with me. No one came. He tried to ask the cooks about it and they didn't help him. The chef walked by me and didn't say a word. I went outside and the pool bartender helped me which was nice of him. Apparently the servers were on a break. The place seems very disorganized. Reservations should not be available when non one is even there to serve guests. This is in a hotel lobby too which is crazy. The guacamole was ok, the quesadilla was ok. The chicken taco was inedible and the veggie taco had no veggies in it. Fried cheese and mushrooms. Marriott needs to get it together at this location.

    Our food was fantastic! Great wine selection and service was quick and friendly. We would absolutely return. My son said it was the best chicken tenders he had ever had on the kids menu! They brought some extra coloring pages and games for my children. Brussels sprouts and churros for dessert were our favorites- not to snub the sea bass which was also excellent!

    Saw a review from yesterday saying there were no managers or bartenders and that it was overpriced, so we were reluctant to try it, but since we are staying in the hotel we gave it a go. Not sure what happened with those people, but we had a great time! Becca was great, the Kiwi Paloma was just what the doctor ordered on this hit humid day. The Pool Dj was great, definitely reminds me of summer pool parties back home. No one else in Pismo is doing this. Great food, great drinks, great staff, Manager (forgot his name but Latino with a very nice green shirt) was friendly. Well worth the price, will definitely be back next time we are in Pismo.

    Expected better. Disappointed. Restaurant located inside expensive boutique hotel. Wine by the glass listvwas weak considering the proximity to Paso Robles. Service was slow. We were given one small basket / bowl of chips and one small salsa dish for 5 of us. We had to repeatedly ask for chips and salsa. 3 drinks and 5 entrees was $175. Overall food presentation was weak at best. The flank steak and shrimp and beans were delivered cold and without a steak knife. Pozole was delivered without a spoon, we had to ask for it. Overall, would not go back and would recommend others to look elsewhere.

    Food was…meh at best. Soup came out lukewarm, had to send back. Servers were friendly but flustered and inattentive. Sat without beverage for a long time, 2nd beer was “on the way” after meal was long finished.

    The food is some of the most innovative in the Pismo Beach area. It is particularly nice that creativity is supplied to Mexican food here, which is typically of one type. The cocktail descriptions make them sound fruity and sweet, but they turned out to be well balanced classic cocktails. The salsas were diverse and authentically Mexican. We especially liked the tostada with tuna, avocado, and sauce, the tri tip taco, and the ahogada dessert. The outdoor seating is best because it provides a view for people watching in the lawn area, and one also sees the boardwalk and the ocean. Pequin is now one of our three favorite restaurants in Pismo Beach.

    Hands down, one of the best restaurants in Pismo. The new concept is great. I only wish that I could post more than 4 pics. Roasted Brussels, Ceviche Trio, Steak and Shrimp mojo de ajo, and Seabass in Banana leaf. The Tres Leches Bread Pudding, Kahluá Flan, and the Churros in a Cloud (the presentation with the cinnamon smoke is not to be missed) we're all amazing. Definite try the Kiwi Paloma, Hot Lips, Brewjeria, and Mango Collins if u like great cocktails. De

    We had reservations at 630. When get there and they are having a media conference and when we went to check in the girl said she called but I never got a miss call then she proceed to tell me taht their phone sometimes doesn’t work. But the conference was running late and that they wouldn’t serve us until 730. Which is ridiculous considering I made reservations! It was my first time there and it just left a terrible impression

    I don't like leaving a bad review but... I am sorry the service was not good, especially for the prices we paid. We were very disappointed. Our server would leave for long periods of time and not return to check on us. We asked three times for water. There were not many people in the restaurant, so she was not busy with other tables. I don't know where she was going or what she was doing. The food was not terrible, but the service really needs to be improved. If the management will invest in some customer service training, I think it would benefit them tremendously.

    Really great service. My wife's dish wasn't as good as we expected but the wait staff was understanding and took something off the bill (which we didn't ask for). My meal was outstanding. Overall the food was very good (I believe my wife's dish was just a bad night and not a routine issue. I recommend Somerset.

    Live music was annoying and too loud. Halibut dish was Luke warm and disappointing , overall the prices for drinks and the food is over priced. For the same price go to Ember which delivers excellent food and value every time. We live local and eat out frequently. Will pass on Somerset Grill in the future.

    Sat outside on the patio, the manager sat us down and was very nice. There was a lot of children at every table which was not a good vibe for date night which was why we came to this location in the first place. My date lost their wallet the night prior and only had a photo of their ID so was not able to get a drink which is understood but unfortunate. There was only 6 entrees separate from what we had seen online so overall nothing seemed to be in our favor for the night. Ended up leaving after I paid for my drink due to all the factors combined and left disappointed in how the night was expected to go. Hopefully it’s better in the future when we come back.

    The food was good and the service fine, the restaurant I& bar were great … but this was not ocean view dining as stated on OpenTable! The restaurant is set back behind the pool & pool bar, as well as the patio play area. There is no ocean view or decent view of the sunset from the restaurant. It was a nice meal, but I made 5:30pm reservations to be able to watch the sunset with my wife and was disappointed.
