    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

    The food was decent, but pricey. The service was slow as people who sat down after our family was served before ours. But, we did enjoy the clam chowder and dessert. We would recommend it for the ambience and chowder.

    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.

    Went in for January Restaurant month pre-fix, but decided to just pick off the menu. It was a quite night but beautiful. Our server, Lisa, was excellent. Very friendly and we talked about wine and traveling. She recommended Burrata and when my husband heard cheese, said yes. We also had the Halibut and I had a citrus desert. My Central Coast Old Fashion took me through the whole dinner, along with lots of water. After there were some girls from Cal Poly with telescopes. So we looked at the Moon and Jupiter. During the summer downtown Pismo is too crowded so this worked out perfectly for myself and my husband.

    Service was really slow even though it wasn't busy (almost an hour before any food arrived). No updates on when the food was coming. Chicken crisp was hard and food generally mediocre. Overpriced and not worth paying the premium for a hotel restaurant.

    We ate here on Thanksgiving day. Like many other restaurants they had a pre-fix menu. The price was $89 per person and the portions were tiny. Also some items were hit and miss. The soup was great but another choice for app was a sweet potato dish with goat cheese and salad. I got 4 tiny slices of sweet potato, a small handful of greens and two pieces of goat cheese. My husband got a bowl of soup that was huge … made no sense! No way these items should have been considered interchangeable. Bottom line, not worth the price. Portion size is laughable and I left hungry …

    Went for the Prix Fixe dinner on Thanksgiving 2021. Pretentious, over priced and under proportioned. Creative flavor choices, that were not well balanced. While great in concept, it left a lot to be desired in execution. The best part was the sweet potato appetizer. A serving of 1 Oz of roasted turkey was disappointing. The sweet corn cake was flavorful but the cranberry mole’ was bitter and played against the meal as a whole. The room temp water they served finished with a dirt flavor, which was off putting. Great atmosphere and the wine, Pinot Noir was also a highlight. The total came to roughly $233 for a 4 course meal for two, we left hungry, and disappointed. Service was decent, but eating on the patio full of dogs was also off putting. Several were off leash and kept wandering. Not what I expected from a Marriott resort.

    While the setting was wonderful (sunset at the beach) and the service was great, the portion size of the entree was very much on the small size. The flavors were ok however, limited choices and very overpriced. I understand a new menu is in the works, which is needed.

    We started out with the truffle fries and fresh burrata and they were good. Although there was just a hint of "truffle" on the fries, the burrata was wonderful. Then my daughter and I shared the Flat Iron Steak and added lobster. The steak was under seasoned and tough and not worth the price at all. The lobster was meat from a whole small lobster and was plane with no drawn butter or lemon to go with. It was just ok. Tasted more like crab. The server was excellent. She was very gracious in helping us find a wine we liked. The ambiance was easily 5 stars. I'd try it again, but wouldn't order steak. They really need to figure that out.

    Food was very disappointing. Truffle fries were truffle-free 😟 Worst of all, I asked for Doc Burnstien’s vanilla bean ice cream for dessert, and they gave me “heavenly vanilla” — boring. We enjoyed sitting outside and meeting wonderful people.
