    Gorgeous restaurant with beautiful views and live music. Definitely a great spot to go for brunch. Drinks were good but my meal came out wrong and by the time it was fixed, my husband and son were done eating. They also forgot my son’s drink and brought it after he was done eating. A little pricey for those mistakes I thought but otherwise nice.

    The Tandoori style chicken was good but the Mediterranean salad had zero flavor. The dressing sounds interesting but had no taste. The lemon pepper shrimp did not have any lemon or pepper taste, just bland. But my kids did love the chicken. You really go here for the view, which is spectacular! So it was worth it.

    We were to celebrate our anniversary outside at Castle Hill, we sat, got glasses of wine and watched the storm roll in. As the rain fell torrentially we ran inside. Inside dining at Castle Hill is a world of its own, usually impossible to get a table. Knowing it was our anniversary they found us a table and let us move from the lawn to the inside. It was like being invited to go from the kid's table to the adult one. It was a dinner, of spectacular tastes, service, and ambiance that we will remember and will set the standard for future anniversaries. What really stood out? The truffle pasta was amazing, stripper always pleases, but this time was memorable. If you can find your way inside, we recommend it highly.

    Wonderful venue and views. From a service perspective, I would expect more from a Relais & Chateaux restaurant - servers seemed predominantly new and were still going through training. Food was good but not great; when I asked for my salad with dressing on the side, it came in a small cup, about 1/4 of which had spilled (in transit from the kitchen) and drenched the bottom of the salad — this is a rookie mistake that could have been prevented with more care.

    We dined on the Lawn. Setting was lovely and very picturesque; food and service were great. Only problem was there were workers moving tables and chairs (setting up for something the next day) throughout most of our dinner. It was very noisy and it killed the ambiance of this fantastic location.

    We arrived for lunch outside overlooking the ocean on a windy, partly sunny afternoon and the view was wonderful! We had valet parking which was prompt, decent wait staff that was polite, and food that was good. Overall, I feel like you come here for the view and the experience of eating outside overlooking the ocean. The food was fine, but very expensive. The waitstaff was overwhelmed and at times very slow, but we didn't mind because the view made us want to take our time eating. I would definitely recommend for lunch to enjoy the ocean views!
