    The appetizers and desserts were delicious. The other dishes were lukewarm and cold. Service was exceptional, ambience was exceptional. The main courses left room for more seasoning and actual temperature heat.

    The food was so-so. Definitely underseasoned. The server brought the bill, I handed her my credit card and she returned for my signature. She had added a 20% ($40+!) tip, saying it was automatic 20% on thanksgiving! The ad for the t’giving buffet said auto-20% tip for tables of 8 or more—there were only two of us! And dirty dishes had been left all over our table. Water wasn’t refilled during our meal. It was a buffet!—Staff didn’t serve the food! I’ll never eat there again.

    Food was luke warm. Water was dirty in my son's glass. On top of that, we were charged for two items that we disagreed with and there was no adjustment.

    Large portions for breakfast, great French toast and lattes. We passed on having dinner here as there is no “a la crate” menu and five courses were just too much for us.

    Nice food for a Sunday brunch but limited menu. Prices were steep. For example, a couple of eggs, toast and bacon was $22, $4 more than the casual restaurant next door. Setting, like the one next door, is wonderful.

    I’m from Florida and its a vibe to eat by the water back home ; So I was looking for a place to kinda connect to the experience that everyone that visits Florida gets lol. Although it wasn’t the case… The location is nice but I feel like someone with a whole lot more of brighter ideas could make the place better(Always rooms for improvement.) Food wasn’t the best. The presentation was decent. I wasn’t impressed.

    The food was not as good as I had thought it would be; not bad but not too special. The melon wasn't ripe, was pretty tasteless. French toast was good. The salmon Benedict was ok; kale was tough and bread was challenging to cut with a butter knife. Service was a bit slow. Building very nice both inside and outside.

    The Ciopinno was a very thin broth consistency whereas we prefer a thicker base and herb/spice wise it didn’t seem seasoned enough- The tomato sauce for the the chicken parmigiana lacked depth… The salads were delightful and the Brussels were superb. Cocktails demonstrated skillful and masterful mixology … The tiramisu was divine- topped with a special anniversary message for us- thank you Tidal! Service was on point and the view on the patio was perfection, wrapped in a magic hour sunset of lavender, pink and Orange with beach bonfires flickering nearby.

    Nice dinner with the kids and waitress abandoned us! Got cold food, only got 2 drinks as she left them at the bar and got lost in conversation with other guests and blamed the new bar tender. Food was great, drinks were tasty but lacked attention. Could’ve made it a totally different experience

    Not sure if this is an everyday thing but the menu was predetermined. We searched for best sea food in San Diego Mission Beach and this was the top listed. We were excited for sea food but became the menu was predetermined the only sea food was halibut. I think the only good part was that the location was amazing when you sit outside. Wouldn’t come back or recommend it to anyone.
