Amazing views from both the patio and inside dining. Staff was terrific, asked us to switch our reservation time and offered us a free bevvy as a thank you! They also brought water for our little dog. Can’t say enough about Gray Monk staff, will go again! Oh and the wine was great too ;) took home the Riesling. Cheers.

We celebrated our anniversary here. I had wanted to come here for a long time to enjoy the spectacular view. The view was great, but the menu was seriously overpriced for what we received. We were underwhelmed by the taste of the food and the portions considering the premium we paid. We were seated inside, as the weather was cool. There was no decor. Atmosphere was seriously lacking, and I didn't hear any music at all! For such a beautiful view, work needs to be done on creating a nice atmosphere/ambience. The service was good., but we will not return here.

We have been to The Lookout restaurant at least 20 times and of course the highlight is the patio and scenery ...and for us the top notch steelhead trout. However, with the patio closed the ambience inside was less than lovely. No atmosphere whatsoever. The renovations along with table and chairs are great but the lack of an interior designer to create some sort of atmosphere is greatly lacking. It felt like we were sitting in a cafeteria . The hostess was dressed in something resembling pajamas for pants and a baseball cap. As long as the interior ambience stays as is we will wait until next year when the patio is opened again and will not visit again through the winter months.

I wasn’t as happy as usual.
My trout was a bit slimy I didn’t like my salad
My fiends chicken sandwich was covered in adobe sauce making it too spicy.
Sorry I have always loved your food it was not the same.
