    This was my 1st visit and it won't be my last. I travel solo, so many restaurants that are high end make it difficult to make a reservation for only one person, not this place. When I arrived, I was greeted warmly and made to feel most welcome. The service/waiter was attentive, friendly and kind. The food, after tasting each course, was beyond perfect and delicious, it was as if I've never tasted food before going here and then suddenly POW a blast of delicious flavor, perfectly seasoned, perfect portions and beautifully arranged dishes, I am still in awe of this dining experience. The chef was kind and sent out compliments of the chef a delicious vegan soup. I can't say enough positive words about the food, service and of course the beautiful views/atmosphere. I know this will be my new to go to place for dining whenever I visit Big Sur for now on.

    Everyone pick places to eat for many different reason, i picked Sierra Mar for the view, it is the most elegant, sophisticated, and classy restaurant i have ever been to. The way up to the restaurant has an aura of its own, the view sitting down is panoramically breathtaking, the dramatic meeting of sea and land. I took the man of my dreams for his birthday, he loved it, a little pricey, the wine was amazing. I reserved my seat and asked for a special seat because of the occasion and boy did they come through.

We are delighted to find that the result of your visit is an experience that will long be treasured by you both and we trust a few photos were even captured to share with friends and family at home. As you likely know, our menu changes to reflect in-season ingredients, meaning that new flavors can always be discovered with each passing visit. Until we see you again.

    This is my favorite restaurant in the universe. The location in Big Sur, the specific location on the hill overlooking the ocean, the property, the approach, the architecture, the panoramic view, the art, and finally, the usuals: food, wine and service. All are outstanding. The highlight of our visit this time, our third, was Eric, the sommelier. His wine choices were a bit daring, but each was fabulous; for example, a rosé with the fish course on a cold, rainy evening. It just worked. (And he was a delight.)

    Dear SantaMonicaFoodie, We are humbled to have earned the top spot on your list of favorite restaurants and we appreciate you spreading the word, encouraging others to experience a meal in our cliffside retreat.

We second that notion, and we look forward to seeing you then. In the spirit of hospitality, Reylon Agustin Director of Culinary Sierra Mar
