    We ordered a margarita with salt and was charged $15 for what tasted like lemonade and no salt. Plus it was delivered in a highball glass. The waiter told us the usual bartender did not mix the drink. We didn't complain but this is the highest priced margarita we ever had. Other than that everything was great.

    We had reservations and the hostess was no where to be found. Restaurant was completely empty eight maybe 3 tables being served. A few employees walked by and did not acknowledge us standing there. After 8 minutes, I walked over to the bar tender and asked for help. After a few minutes the hostess appeared. We were provided great service from the busser and the expo person but less than average from our server. We ordered kids mac and cheese (literally no flavor). Kids cheese pizza was decent. I ordered Miso Halibut (super salty) and mash potatoes were the best item on that dish. My husband ordered the braised short rib pappardelle and it was sooooooo bland that no salt could have helped the dish. Also ordered crispy Brussels sprouts that were very hard and not crispy with no flavor except from eating the pancetta. Awful food for $140 bill plus $35 tip, not worth $175 for total food and service! We only ate here because we stayed at the resort. Great ambience and plenty of seating options but if all the food is similar, I would suggest eating elsewhere and saving your money!

    We ride our bikes by this resort often and have been wanting to try it so we went on Saturday, 10/22/2022, for my husband birthday brunch. Beautiful setting but the food was awful, we will not be coming back and already have told MANY friends how bad the food is. The garden omlet tasted like fish, maybe you used the same pan as cooking fish? The pancakes were so bad. OMG, you need a new cook. The menu looked so good but, wow, you need to step it up and do better. Now I know why, when we ride our bikes by there, there are hardly any people eating at this restaurant. We left over half of each plate untouched. Will not be back!!!!!!!! Also, the coffee is very bitter, maybe new coffee too.

    Had a 9:15 am reservation for the Upper Terrace, arrived at 9:10 am, and was seated right away, but not in the Upper Terrace. A server came within 5 minutes and took our drink order but did not give me a name. Another server came to take the order and again did not give a name. While waiting for the meal, a server came and poured the coffee that had been left on the table. That seemed kind of weird as he did not ask but just did it. Breakfast arrived in a reasonable time frame and was good. The server forgot the white toast, and when it did arrive, it was so hard that it was not edible. I had to wait until he came around again to tell him and ask for white bread. The white bread arrived in about 10 minutes, and I was almost finished with my meal. Service again was lacking as my table was not checked on, and our drinks did not get refilled until the end when I asked for the check.

    Check in good, arrived 14 minutes early and seated right away. Offered water after seated, no name given. Drinks arrived and ordered about 10 minutes of being there. At 7:56 still no food nor anyone checking on us. The table next to us that arrived after we did has already finished their first course. Our server walked by for the fourth time at 8:05 and said nothing, we even tried to get his attention. At 8:13 our dinner finally arrived via another server still not seeing ours and still no drink refills. One meal of a Burger had soggy bottom bun and fries luck warm. At 8:16our server asked my guest about a drink refill but did not ask me, just walked away. At 8:29 our server looked across the room at us and still nothing, I even waved at him. 8:32 another server cleared our table, still no original server. My drink has been sitting almost empty now for awhile. 8:34 our server finally came back again and asked about dessert menu, we said no and before I could ask about a drink he was gone. Our server spent the majority of his time across the room at the table of a slender female with a white top that had cutouts in various locations.

    A subpar hotel restaurant experience. Loud outdoor experience with poor event/kitchen restaurant balance, waited over 45-1h for meal due to a slammed chicken working on an event catering order (they did the right thing and comped our drinks for the wait which was approached) we had to move inside to escape the hectic outdoor dinning area. server was nice but not personable. Conflicting event DJ/live music noise outside. I felt bad for the live performer who was trying to sing over the other event happening at the same time. Lots of small children and separate party events grouped together. No thought put into special occasion seating and event noise made for a very hectic evening at a spot you’d imagine to be very relaxed. Nice grounds/facilities just very poor scheduling of events/seating and music.

    The outdoor patios are wonderful! Beautiful views of the bay and sunset. The food was also very good. I got the halibut, which was very tasty snd husband got the pork chop which was huge! He ate it all! Service was also really good so overall it was the best meal experience we had in San Diego over a holiday weekend! Would highly recommend for a well deserved special dinner.

    Beautiful spot but the food we had was average. Pork lollipops were tough, Brussels sprouts had no flavor and the pork pappardelle was also bland. Service slow- the waiter apologized for the wait and we weren’t really in a hurry. Minimal wine selections. Salads were very good, but huge. Totally shareable and would be good if we had been told because it’s wasteful to throw half a salad away. The ambience is great though. Might just have been our experience on a night we were both travel weary.

    Food was under par, and barely edible. Oysters were warm/not fresh at all, charred octopus had no flavor and had no char (felt like it was microwaved), miso halibut was over cooked and dry. Parpadelle was good, but nothing special (i was supposed to have ciopino but quickly switched to non-seafood after the apps). Super disappointed by the food, but the sunset view here was pretty great. Service was good too. Would never dine here again due to poor food quality, nor recommend this place to anyone for any type of meal.

    Costly food which was ok. Expected more but the chef puts too much sauce and dressing on everything. The salmon I had was so well done with crispy skin. I’d go again but would ask for dressing on side.
