    The waitress was less than attentive and it took over 40 minutes to receive our food. The restaurant was not busy at all having only 2 other small parties the entire night we were there. We also had an ice cream cake that was brought out smashed/ look to be dropped which they would not take responsibility for. This was for my little sisters birthday and we were all disappointed.

    My friend and I had a beautiful experience at Tanner's. We sat ocean front and had a sunset view. The food was perfect. I had the scallops and baby gem salad. She had a New York and salad. They have a mocktail list which is fun and accommodated the gluten free needs. The only reason I gave four stars to service is that we were still eating our salads and our entrees were brought out. The timing needs to be adjusted of the first and second courses. Other than that, it was a fun night and highly recommendTanner's.

    Unfortunately my food wasn’t great, my breakfast burrito was not good. The tortilla was hard and stale, and we moved tables because the one we were sitting at had a bunch of ants all over it.

    $12.50 for parking to dine? That's over $6.00 an hour (if you stay two hours). Not very inviting since you are going to dine there.. The view is nice, if you can get a good table. They try to seat people so they can have a view...but they lack umbrellas for some of the other tables. The service was good, but the lack of wait staff was obvious. The servers worked hard, but couldn't be everywhere. The food was good, the view was good...but the excessive parking change is a detriment. I went with my 96 year old mother, who is in a wheelchair...they even charge the overinflated prices for parking for handicapped? Many places, and resorts will waive that fee (for handicapped). I wonder if they really want the food business.

    This place has a gorgeous ocean view and food is decent, but the service is really not there. There were several tables available outdoors and they forced us to sit indoors and when I arrived and asked to be seated outside, the manager took 20 minutes to seat us on the right table. Again THE TABLE WAS AVAILABLE. Server forgot our appetizer order and brought the main food directly. A few other things related to careless service.

    Great service. Lentil Soup was cold. Ceviche was not good. Our cocktails were great. (Negroni and Margarita) Our entrees were great as well. (Scallop and chard octopus dishes) Our server noticed that we didn’t eat the ceviche and took it off our bill. Nice view.

    Came in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch, they were not busy. Wasn’t acknowledged until I asked if I could be directed to the host since I came in through the shops and was a bit lost. Food was great, Brussels were amazing, burger was cooked to perfection (medium rare) and the cucumber delight was truly a delight. So good! Idk it’s just nice being acknowledged but overall everything was fine.

    As a local we’ve heard about this place for awhile. Finally decided to give it a try. Once seated we sat unattended for 15 mins with waitresses walking past us constantly before someone started pouring our water to which I had to ask “ are you our waitress?” She simply responded “yes”. I had to ask if we could order drinks. Service overall was slow which made no sense as the restaurant was empty! Our drinks took forever to come out. Food was good but not for the bill we received at the end of the night, which we all agreed on. Parking got validated only to still have to pay for parking, made no sense to us. There are too many other great restaurants around to go spend our money at. This was a “one and done” for our us.

    The only portion where you can see a decent view is upstairs at the bar. All the food was over hyped and overpriced. Thankfully we made the best for our anniversary as the drinks were not tasteful either.

    My expectations for this place were absolutely not it. It took anyone to greet my girls and I 20 minutes then a bottle of champagne and juices another 30 and I’m not exaggerating plus too add it they got the wrong bottle and juice! By the time we finished the bottle we ordered another one but of course it took another 20 minutes so our buzz was gonna it was just absolutely ridiculous. No one apologized no one comped anything. Then we went upstairs to the roof top no music ever then when we got our first bottle we were forgotten about literally no one checked on us we ordered food. It never drive. We had to get up to the bar and order more drinks. To add on to this we checked our bank statement and noticed that we were double charged for our tabs!

    Didn’t fit into the vision of true roof top. This is only 2nd floor bar. The view is limited to ocean. The night view is dark and not a value for the price. The cost of liquor is very high (ex: $45 for 10 ml Mcallan 18) and the fly comes free. When you ask them to remove fly, they dump 70% of $45 Macallan 18.
