Sierra Mar - Post Ranch Inn
Dinner: 5:30pm - 9:00pm
Love. Love. Love. Delicious. Great staff and incredible view. I had the cavier and it was presented beautifully and it was decadently delicious
SUPERB! California cuisine at it’s BEST! Delectable flavor combinations. Gorgeous presentation. All nestled in serene Big Sur. Be sure to take time to visit the Chef’s potager garden and the art gallery! A great prix fix menu.
Einfach nur großartig. Ein tolles Zusammenspiel aus Küche, Architektur und Landschaft.
4 course meal (You pick from a predefined list of options) with amazing views. Step outside to see the most stars in the sky you’ve ever seen.
If booking a dinner reservation, book it before time of sunset in order to get the views.
Definitely paying for the views. Was underwhelmed by the food. Way overpriced for what you get. I would recommend for a drink if you want to see the view but would skip the meal.
Amazing views but quite disappointing for food. Was expecting much more food wise.
The view and ambiance here are unparalleled. If you're looking for a place to celebrate an engagement that is just as beautiful as the special moment, then you can't find a better restaurant than Sierra Mar. Our server was exceptional and provided perfect wine pairings for dinner. The sticker shock delivered via the bill at the end of the meal was alleviated by a romantic walk around the property in the dark mist of the Big Sur coastal night.
I feel like this restaurant is dated and in desperate need of a refresh. It was built in the 90’s and it feels that way. It was also very hot at sunset which made it difficult for me to enjoy myself as I was sweating for the first part of my dinner. I also feel like the menu is overpriced and we were charged $45 for each corkage bottle which is extreme in my opinion. The view is amazing and that is what you are paying for. The food was good, but not worthy of the price they are charging quite frankly.
Memorable to say they least. Worth the price although I think they should offer the pizza on the prix fix :)
It was by far the best dining experience I’ve ever had. I’m a major foodie and have dined all over. This tops the French Laundry by far. An all around fabulous treat. Will be back for sure!!!
it was great! food was just ok actually. however the atmosphere was great and the view was stunning!
Die Location ist absolut sehenswert, auch wenn man so wie in unserem Fall nur noch einen Tisch für den Lunch bekommt. Rechtzeitig reservieren, Dinner ist oft Wochen vorher ausgebucht. Zu recht - Location und Atmosphäre sind einzigartig, Essen ist auch super: schöne Auswahl und gute Zutaten. Personal professionell und freundlich. Wenn man den Pacific Coastal Highway fährt ein Stopp, denn man unbedingt machen sollte.
This place is top notch! Service was amazing, the food and of course the views. When you visit Sierra Mar you are on the edge of America. It’s Spectacular and breath taking. My new happy place. The menu matched the view and we had the most pleasant lunch!
Amazing place. Food was terrific! The ambiance is unique. Lovely Arquitecture. Simply beautiful. The best moment for us at Big Sur
We booked the Sierra Mar Lunch Menu while on a roadtrip in California. The food was great, the views (Big Sur) amazing and the staff very attentive. Absolute 5 Stars!
We had a fantastic meal in the most incredible setting! Watching the sunset over the Pacific as you dine on the most creative and nourishing food - well there’s nothing quite like that experience. Service was phenomenal, food was out of this world, wine and cocktails divine - we would highly recommend this experience to anyone who can indulge.
Snobby hostess. Did not say bye and thank us and treated us like second class when she found out we were not staying at the glitzy resort. The wait staff also had to be prompted many times to refill our water and we waited very long for our dessert. Did not serve the soup with a spoon. Many mistakes made for the high price we paid for the food.
Expensive and food only ok. Had to send the fettuccini back as it was stuck together. No gluten free options, no vegan or vegetarian options on them menu and little flexibility from the waiting staff
Amazing place and food!
The magic of Big Sur is perfectly punctuated when you enter the world of Sierra Mar. The architecture, the views and the warm greeting by the staff set the stage for a most extraordinary dining experience!
The price fix lunch here is good value and the location, ambiance, and views are stunning. Easily your nicest meal of the year. Great for special occasions or if you truly want to impress our date :)
Amazing experience overall. Can't say enough about the food, the staff, the view, the atmosphere.
Awesome place to enjoy a birthday - love the ranch with amazing staff and a very friendly gate person. thanks
Post Ranch Inn has been a favorite, tho' pricey, favorite since it opened...We now live on the east coast so haven't been back recently --traveling with my daughter this time, wanted a special place for Saturday lunch for her birthday! Siera Mar did not disappoint! Everything is perfect! Loved the prix fixe menu, the staff are excellent, attentive friendly and professional --and the VIEW...amazing! We will return again and again, whenever we're in the area!
Really disappointing. Reataurant is in an exceptional location with an amazing view. However the food is just average. We had beet soup which was the best course, but the rest was certainly not in the ranks of fine dining. Without the view, the reataurant would not last very long.
The worst part was the service. The waitress was run off her feet and we waited a long time for service. Our wine glasses weren’t filled once and they ended up comping the last drink, not becuase we asked but they finally realised they got the order wrong and we had to wait over 20 mins. We definitely won’t rush back.
I’ve lived in Tahoe a few years ago and I was taking my wife to know Lake Tahoe region and show her places I’ve been and I decided do go to West Shore Café because it is right in front of Homewood where I’ve worked during winter vacation. We really loved the place and the attention that we had by Savannah who was serving our table. Great experience, great food and great environment. Strongly recommend.
Been to Sierra Mar 3 times before, between 2008-2012. The experience from the staff, the setting and the food was simply magical. I even have clients that have stayed and dined there and they said the same.
This recent dining was so poor it was insulting. It reminded me of two certainties- it's rare for service providers to be consistent and that I have to stick to my standards of what I'm willing to accept and not accept.
The biggest shock was the food to value. I wanted to leave after the first course. Almost did, but stayed the course because it was a special occasion. My spouse later said she would have been fine leaving earlier because she too was shocked at how bad this was.
I understand that Big Sur was hit hard by the road closure, but this corner cutting isn't the right way to recoup.
Never plan to return.
This is such a special place, otherworldly! I bring friends who visit and they are blown away each time.
The place is smashing, outstanding, incredible. I have already recommended it to several people.
Spectacular views, food and service. A memorable experience.
Unforgettable dinner, food and view were excellent
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here and everything was spectacular! The food was first class, the view was breathtaking and the staff was very attentive. It’s pricey, but worth it!
this is THE special occasion hot spot along the pacific coast highway south of San Fran.
Some of the dishes were amazing. Some just good.
We went here on our honeymoon and the service and cuisine were fantastic. We requested a window view table and they gladly moved us to a table with a killer view! They also gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne for dining with them on our honeymoon! I would absolutely go back there again and I highly recommend the wagyu beef ribeye. It melts in your mouth. Yummm
View is of course, great.
However, this is a restaurant so based on that it’s a no go.
I would give the chef high marks for presentation- the food is pretty on the plate. I had the Sole filet and my wife ordered a quinoa dish. Neither of these I would serve to friends at home because of food quality.
Portions are very small as well. Service is average. Prices are very high and that’s the bar they set but don’t meet at all...
Great lunch with an amazing view! The set menu was very interesting and the staff was very nice.
I was not thrilled to find out that there was a $75/person fixed menu for not-hotel guests, whereas the guests had the option of an a la carte menu.
