A+ for service; Erin was friendly and came by our table at just the right pace. We enjoy an experience where the server isn’t by our table every two seconds. For our style of dining, she was perfect.

The ambience can’t be beat; sitting outside, looking at the ocean, at sunset ... wow! Keep in mind on a busy night it can be a little noisy being right by the beach but we didn’t mind.

In our opinion, the kitchen dramatically brings down the experience. They just couldn’t seem to get it dialed in on our night here. Our appetizers were solid but the main courses were where things came unglued. For one, it took a long time for our food to come out. Granted (see above) this wouldn’t have been a big deal because we were enjoying the atmosphere but when dinner takes 30+ minutes it needs to arrive correct. And in our case it did not. The redfish was good, but the steak was grossly overdone. We sent it back (Erin handled this like a rockstar) and waited ... and waited ... and waited. If I’m running a kitchen and a steak gets sent back looking microwaved (I asked for medium rare) you get on it, refire, and get it out ASAP. 20+ minutes later my steak came back over cooked again, albeit this go around was better.

At this point it was getting late and I didn’t have the heart to send it back. Thankfully Erin (rockstar!) and the manager handled it well and took care of my dinner and treated us to a tasty dessert. So kudos to them for going above and beyond but shame on your kitchen putting them in this position to begin with.

Our entrees were delicious and well presented. We ordered the salad as an appetizer and it was ridiculous how little we got for $15. Do not waste your money on the salad. The rest was great. Our server, I can’t remember her name, but she was from St. Louis, MO, she was very good and friendly.

Poor choice for us. Not at all the level expected at a Hyatt. Food was OK, some items were not hot, selection was small, and I would say 2 to 3 times the cost of others buffets we have dined.They also added an 18% gratuity automatically for a party of 3 for buffet type service. They would have received more if they left the tipping as my choice. Nice to have a view of the beach, but room was hot with gusts of warmer air coming in from outside on every open of the door. Would not dine here again.

I, my wife and my 5 year old went for the Mothers Day brunch. we preferred outside seating but for some reason, the host insisted on seating everyone in the blazing sun at tables with no umbrellas. we declined and were seated at an available table in the shade. The food was ok, the steak was superb, the jerk chicken was dry as the desert and the chilled shrimp was almost raw. The paella was at best a 3 out of 5. Also for Mothers day they didn't have offerings for children? we had to order chicken mcnuggets from the Beach Bar. The brunch, mimosas cam out to a grand way overpriced total of $274.44!
Thank god they didnt charge for the mcnuggets!

The young man who greeted at the entrance was not kind at all and his voice was so light. He was not ready to assist people. He acted like a squat leader or boy scout.
The woman server was same thing. She didn't answer our questions well. She seemed so cranky when we hesitated to choose which menus we liked to do. She brought coffee and waters by her hand holding top part. OMG. I didn't complaint about it at the site because I didn't want to ruin our family bfast enjoyment.
The servers who brought foods were so nice and kind. They must become the mangers of the restaurant.

I made a reservation over a week in advance to guarantee an outdoor table. Even confirmed the reservation the day before and when we got there we were told they didn’t have any and it would be over an hour wait for outdoors. We were seated next to a window and watched another party seated at an empty outdoor table 20+ minutes later. Very frustrating. Food was incredibly overpriced for the quality.

It was my mother's birthday and decided to take her out here. Loved the atmosphere and the amazing view from the balcony. Wish there was more food options but understand due to covid. Service was okay but some things could have been better like when served the appetizer we did not have plates to eat off of. Also not related to the restaurant we were charged for 3 hours of parking when we were only there for 2.

Great food! Awesome view! Our server Veronica was fantastic. Food a little pricey but expected at a hotel restaurant. Group of 4. We had the Calamari and Caesar salad as appetizers which were great. We had the Salmon and Lobster Club which were also very delicious. When in Clearwater a must try!

We had reasonable expectations for the restaurant as it was located in a Hyatt. However, we were pleasantly surprised how great it was. Service was very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was fun. Food was surprisingly AWESOME. Seafood curry dish was one of the best things I have eaten in years!

Went to watch sunset with dinner. Was sat behind a building. Wife an I split a salad as an app and surf and turf for dinner, which was brought out 2 minutes after the salad was and was overcooked. Felt completely rushed the whole time with waiters asking ever 5 minutes if we are finished. Stood up at sunset to walk a few steps away to view and our table was cleared with wine and food still there.

This was our first night in Clearwater Beach and we chose this restaurant that got 4.5 stars on Open Table. Maybe they were just having a bad night but the food wasn’t worthy of that many stars.

I would be careful making a reservation at this place. It only updates what's available after 5pm for that day. So if you try to make a reservation in the afternoon for that night or the next day it only gives about 3/4 options. And no one answers the phone at the main desk

The food was very good. I got the catch of the day. The fish and hummus were amazing together. My fiancé did the surf and turf. It was okay, his steak was over cooked unfortunately. My main complaint is the service. The waitress was super nice, but slow. We ordered a bottle of wine. Took over 30 minutes to receive the bottle. As a business women, if I was conducting a business meeting or having an important dinner, waiting that long is not okay. As, this was just a date night, and we had plenty of time, it is okay. But for future I would look into having better service. A table next to us waiting over 20 minutes for just water, and they had a different waitress. Everything else was very good.

Was not happy with this restaurant at all. We arrived as a party of 6 and my son who needed a highchair was not given one when we arrived at the table by the hostess, we had to wait till our server arrived before we were given a highchair. The kids chicken nuggets were so dry and over fried that it was so hard for my son to even chew. The burgers were the only plus to the dinner. The staff was very un-attentive and there were only 2 waitresses working both inside and outside.
