    Everything was wonderful; the ambience, view, food, service, and value. The cocktails were made well and were delicious. We had the braised beef and rack of lamb, both were tender and juicy. Vegetables were flavorful and not soggy. Mashed potatoes were delightful and light. The endless ocean view truly makes this a perfect destination.

    Amazing experience at Vista last night. We wanted almost everything on the menu-and what we did get was excellent. They were very accommodating to our tenth anniversary and even included a complementary dessert! We live about three hours away but we can hardly wait to come back! Thanks for an amazing time Vista!

    Can’t beat the view! Lots of menu options, attentive server. The strawberry cucumber mojito did not disappoint. My mom had the prime rib special - huge cut of meat cooked perfectly. I had the crab and shrimp parpedelle pasta special. All perfectly cooked and seasoned. Try the duck tacos, you won’t be disappointed.

    The views are beyond belief but you add to that the impeccable service and outstanding food and I assure you, you will not be disappointed. The family that took over this restaurant has really made it better than it has ever been. They own other high quality restaurants close by and they clearly know what they are doing with both food and service.

    The bartenders are OUTSTANDING! Engaging and fun and made delicious drinks! The food as always knocks it out of the park!! We have been here dozens of times with large and small parties! The service and food has always been great! Tonight’s service was sub par! Oyster tray left on the table when new plates arrived-we had to ask for water numerous times, slow bus service!! It was a special birthday for my husband-and we we left disappointed! The manager tried tried to make it right-but it was a little too late as it was at the end of the evening! We will be back-but will ask for a different server next time!

    Arrived early for reservations, we were told 15 to 20 minute wait. The assistant female manager seemed put out we were early. She walked past us several times while we sat in the bar, with no update. I spoke to another person at the front desk and we were immediately seated. The restaurant is wonderful. The female assistant manager needs a bit more training in communication skills

    The service provided by the server was very good but unfortunately the food was not up to expectations. The bread was staled. We ordered two medium steaks and got 2 dry burned steaks. The price of the food vs the quality and flavor it does not correlate. I'll definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to have a good meal.

    It was quite difficult to get our server and his assistants attention when we needed a glass of water. But the food was great. We did fill a bit unimportant though to the serving staff. Maybe they were overworked and super busy.
