We celebrated our 53 years of marriage and our first meal at a restaurant in five months!
The experience was every bit as expected at the Grandview. The food, wait staff and attention to detail was outstanding. We felt comfortable and safe while dining. The view was terrific and the experience was one we will remember.

Food - steaks were undercooked, very few options for sides, there were multiple pieces of plastic in the cheesecake

Service - most employees were not wearing masks, a few that were had it under their noses and most of the customers were elderly and at high risk of severely getting sick and had no option to wear a mask as they were eating - safety not a priority here. We ate here multiple times over a weekend stay and some waiters were very nice and some were very rude and could not answer any of our questions.

Ambiance - the view was great, absolutely. The building that partially obstructed many viewpoints was extremely dirty. The ceiling had a moderate amount of water damage. They rent out slips to boat owners and those people walk through the restaurant in their swimsuits to get to the pier.

Value - extremely overpriced, especially considering everything mentioned above. I expected much better food for the price we paid. But the food matched the atmosphere - both were disappointing.

Practically empty restaurant but was stuck in the back by a serving station overlooking a dirty flat roof, if I looked hard enough I could see the view. Food was only ok for the price (skip the cheese plate unless you want grocery store block cheese). To top the evening off I couldn’t get a cell signal inside the hotel to reserve an Uber. I asked the front desk if I could use their WiFi and they said no it’s for guests of the hotel only. When I explained what I was trying to do she literally shrugged. Definitely would not recommend.

Responded on July 28, 2020

Hello & thank you for your review! We apologize you feel your visit was not up to par. Our guests who are in groups of 3-4 people, & want a window table, often ask for that table, since all other tables next to the windows accommodate a max of 2 guests. Our cheeses are only sourced from local vendors, such as Hill Valley, & other vendors. None of our cheeses have ever been, nor will be, "grocery store block cheese". We're sorry for the lack of Wi-Fi & cell service during your night out.

We stayed at the Geneva Inn and ordered both room service from this restaurant and had lunch in the restaurant.

Lunch was good. We ordered tacos and they were tasty. Service was great.

Room service wasn’t very good though. We ordered in the first night upon arrival. It was late, about 9:30pm or so. Kitchen closes at 10pm and our food came out medium rare to rare...for a burger and lamb chops...it was not good. We could tell they were just rushing to close..which was surprising because the restaurant was bustling. The second time we ordered room service for breakfast and were also disappointed.

Overall, I’m not sure what the big fuss is about this restaurant. It’s highly rated but considering our experiences it was poor to mediocre at best. The main plus is the view, but that’s it.

Celebrating a birthday in the pandemic and we had a wonderful table at the window and a note for a happy birthday on the table to greet me. We splurged and did the 30th Anniversary multi-course meal with drink pairing and it did not disappoint. A tad under cooked broccolini and the crab was not needed on the Wagu steak- good meal for the set price.

This experience was exactly what we were looking for. We were able to get a table by the window and the view was outstanding. Honestly, the view is probably good from any table. The food was excellent, and our server, Jessica, was delightful! We will be back again and do recommend this restaurant. I had a drink called the Strawberry Dill Margarita, and it was SO GOOD! Who knew those two flavors would pair so well together? My friend got a Cucumber and Basil G&T, gin is not my thing, but she really loved it. We both started with a 1/2 Caesar salad with chicken. They were fresh and good. For our entrees, we ordered the Chilean Seabass Tacos (OUTSTANDING) and the Risotto and Scallops (also super good)! Seriously wanted dessert, but had no room. So we got a brownie to-go, to eat at home later. We had a lot of fun on our friends date at the Grandview and look forward to returning for dinner sometime soon!

Hello GusG, thank you for taking time to write a review about your experience and your perspective. It's unfortunate you felt our portions were "very small" for the price. We do not get many complaints about our dish sizes, as they are quite filling and appropriately priced for our facility. Our goal is to provide each guest with a high quality, exceptional dining experience, and that starts with high quality food, much of which is locally sourced. We hope you return soon to give us another try!
