    Restaurant was clean, staff was great. Seated immediately with reservation. Original Woody drink was excellent and so was the Espresso Martini. The food was very good. Pistachio Halibut, which was their special for the evening, was Awesome. Will definitely return for another dinner and will also be trying their lunch.

    Our party of four sat indoors, in a half booth table near the back of the building. It was insanely noisy. We had to raise our voices to the point of almost yelling in order to hear each other - even our waitress had to repeatedly ask what we were saying. On previous occasions we have eaten indoors at tables near the windows, only somewhat less noisy. We were later told there is more dining upstairs which might be quieter - on Open Table we had requested a quiet setting to dine in, obviously the request was ignored. We may try one more time to dine at Sparks Water Bar but only if outdoors. We will never dine again indoors. Awful experience. Food? Shrimp appetizers, short rib tacos, prime rib, chicken Cobb salad - all really delicious.

    The setting and ambience of the restaurant are very nice. The food was delicious but the service is terrible, and a very unpolished wait staff. For instance the restaurant charges high end resort prices but the staff doesn't offer high end service. No recommendations were made , no special offerings on the menu, no offerings for dessert or any additional drinks. Why pay top dollar for food? Not sure if I would return.

    I made the reservation for 10 people we went to sit down it was only seated for eight and no one knew where to sit and everybody was like nervous and they had to get chairs so that was the first mistake. And then overall the food wasn’t that great and to top it off it was for a birthday and they never even offered a piece of cake when everybody was singing happy birthday. Won’t be back

    From the moment we walked in, we had exceptional service. We were seated quickly at a table and immediately had the server being us drinks. Servers were knowledgeable and knew the menu inside and out. Recommendations were made for some cocktails and dinner was amazing. We will be returning in hopes to eventually try everything on the menu.

    Very pricy for the level of product and service. Well decorated new restaurant, but the outdoor seating was unable to filter out late afternoon direct sunshine, so it was very hot and miserable. You need sunscreen to eat outside.

    The Water Bar is good for special events but way to expensive for everyday dining. Lunch cost me $35 and dinner cost me $65 for just me.....1 person. Ice Tea is $5.75 a glass! Again, another place that caters to the rich Californians but nothing that the locals can really afford.

    I think your menu is priced too high. I know several people that will not eat there because of the prices. Our server was good but her uniform and shoes were dirty. I look at everything!

    We were looking for a nice place to have a dinner out at the end of a long RV road trip. This place was walking distance from where we were staying at the Shasta Marina RV Park. Beautiful setting on the water. Well rounded menu with something for everyone. My husband is a bit of a foodie and he was very pleased with the steak and lobster. HUGE lobster tails. Efficient and friendly service. Could be dressy or casual. A bit noisy with some loud music and the place was packed. We had hoped to sit outside, but were near the kitchen, which was entertaining for my husband and three teens. Not inexpensive, but good portions and delicious food. Would love to return another time!

    The view alone is spectacular, but the food & drinks polished it off. Our waitress made it fun & she was very knowledgeable as to what drinks to order. Since it was a hot summer day, we opted for the Orange creamsicle flavor - I don’t remember it’s name, sorry. So good!!! Definitely get a reservation for sunset on the deck, perfect setting for a romantic dinner or celebration!

    Service was so nice! What a great surprise… unfortunately it’s so rare these days… our server was informative, attentive, and polite. We were not rushed the food was great and everything came out with good timing. Our server made sure our drinks were refreshed before we could ask and anticipated any additional items we needed. Great girls night out. Thank you

    Our experience was great overall, we were really happy with the bartender’s service, she was knowledgeable and offered suggestions. The food was great and the waiter was professional. The only 2 little things that went wrong were that we had a reservation and we had to wait for about 10 mins, while we were waiting a couple walked in with no reservation and were seated immediately. The second thing was that the dinner was a special occasion we had a date night for our 14th anniversary and none of the staff made mention of it or even offered dessert. Nothing major, we enjoyed ourselves and the deck/patio dining was great. I would definitely recommend it.
