This place was horrible. We made a reservation and when we arrived we asked to be seated outside and it was full...even though there were empty tables. We asked to be seated inside at the window... Those too we were told were occupied.
We ordered our drinks and meal. 30 minutes later we were walking around the restaurant trying to find our waiter. We ended up getting our breakfast 10 minutes later.
Btw, no one sat in any of those empty tables that we couldn't have the entire time we were there.
Interesting visit. When we arrived the hostess had no idea what an Open Table reservation was. She had a table for us anyway. The service was mixed. Our waitress was very nice, and tried hard it seeemed. But everything was extremely slow. 20 min after placing an order to get a drink and another 20 for food. Dirty tables not cleaned off. Food order with item missing but quickly fixed. Luckily we were in no rush and wanted to spend time visiting. The food was excellent, and the “vue” is awesome!! We will go back!
Wow! My husband is hard of hearing and they put us in a section that was closed. The manager an Hamero were awesome. They were super attentive to our needs. The food was outstanding. Definitely will return.
Food was over cooked, and not what they said it would be like. The crab cakes had more bread that crab meat. They went to pack up my food and never came back. We were never asked how our meals were. Waiter disappeared on us several times. Hard to locate restaurant.
Not impressed with the view. Something was in the balsamic bottle. Service was great but that’s about it.
Group of 12; both our Server, Austin, and the kitchen staff exceeded expectations. Everything flowed from start to finish, allowing us to thoroughly enjoy the evening setting outside, and the company on hand.
The dining experience parallels the same service I have experienced, with both my business and personal stays, at the Laguna Cliffs Hotel Marriott.
The food was good and fresh. Our waiter Homero was fantastic. The hostess seated us right away. I am a definite customer!
Good was great.
It’s a Marriott Resort🙁Too many kids and very very loud. Children running everywhere and playing with beach balls in the dining area. No music! Poor ambience. I will not return even thou the food and service was excellent.
I hard been there before and i loved it. Not so good today.
If you are lucky they will seat you outside where is beautiful but even with reservation we were sat inside which looks like a cheap cafeteria. Not worth it. The waitress was super nice but the busboys very rude.
great service, wonderful foo. and a beautiful view.
Don’t go there, you will be disappointed!!! The food is ok, but the service is horrible!!! The servers were very rude , and it’s not a kid friendly place, the room was dark we could hardly see each other!
Went for Mother’s Day. Our waiter was pretentious and condescending. My dad ordered a burger. It came out with the wrong cheese on it so he sent it back. When they brought it back out, it was clear they just scraped off the other cheese and gave him the same burger. It was also cold. He sent it back again. Third time was correct and he really enjoyed it. I ordered pizza with gluten free crust. It was eh. My mom’s salmon was excellent. The food and beverage manager was very helpful and courteous though should have comped my dad’s burger but did not. The restaurant itself was bright, modern, and cheerful.
Food was terrible. Three of us didn’t eat our food and it looked like either the kitchen or waiters were under staffed. Restaurant was not busy but food took forever. The actual view area we wanted to sit in was closed due to construction so we ended up in what looked like any Marriott dining room. Won’t go back.
Beautiful setting in the Laguna Cliffs Marriott with a gorgeous view. Service was excellent and the food was good. We will definitely go back!
We had no idea how expensive this place was. I searched for under $30!! Not even close. Feel horrible that we spent this much with 3 kids eating mostly cereal. Beautiful setting but will never go there again.
Mother's Day brunch was very good but a bit chaotic - I think the staff was a bit overwhelmed - nicely presented stations - I would come back for a quiet lunch or dinner - Salvatore is a wonderful chef and I would like to try him on a less stressful day. It's a lovely spot with a gorgeous view -out of town guests would love it
the mothers day brunch was very well put together, however disappointing that only large parties would be able to be seated on the grass area as opposed to up against the windows, hostesses need to be alittle more specific as to what you are to do such as the food stations
Went for lunch, pretty much empty about 6 tables with people. Food was good, service was awful. Ive never had such bad service. First we ordered waters to drink then we ordered our meals. Bread was brought to the table but no plates, it was hard to get anyones attention fir them. When our food came that was the last we saw him. We didnt get our water filled once and we filled our own from our own bottles because we were desperate. It took forever to get our check as well. I will never go back there.
The hostess was fantastic. The food outstanding. The restaurant was clean. Our service was horrible. Jose was abrupt and provided no service. We had to find clean glasses and asked another server for hot coffee.
Tasty wine with a view - they comped the valet for a short stay which was unexpected and appreciated.
I enjoyed everything about the evening. The food, the service and the Vue!
Service was excellent. Loved our wait staff. And we have a lot of needy kids.
I loved it when they used to do the Easter brunch on a grander scale ...
Off one of the ballrooms and they used to have an amazing seafood buffet ... with large prawn shrimp ... loved the ham ... but would like to see roast beef maybe as well.
Honestly - it was a beautiful day and a great experience.
Very enjoyable evening despite weather view of ocean is fabulous .
I was there with a group on Valentine’s Day. We were seated in the middle near the “live music” it was AWFUL. I am not sure why the restaurant manager thought VOLUME 999 was an option for a small sized restaurant. It completely ruined our conversation and was impossible to enjoy. Food was OK. Fish choices were sparse and they had no appetizers?!
First time & had out of town, Delaware state relatives.
Fabulous & the view was great!
We visited this restaurant for dinner on Xmas Eve. The seating was good and the service was great. However, the food was average. For the price, we expected a little more effort.
Went for Christmas Eve with parents that came out of town that day. We enjoyed being together but we did not enjoy the food. Sorry Vue..we were disappointed
I loved my vegan pizza and my husband loved his meatloaf. All had a good experience.
Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving Brunch at The Vue restaurant. The food (Turkey, prime rib, pork loin) all tasted great. Lots of choices. Great desert selection too.
We chose patio seating which offered a spectacular view.
Will definitely go back.
Beautiful restaurant. I would not recommend it for Thanksgiving.
Great way to spend Thanksgiving! The food was great and watching the sun set into the pacific ocean was a spectacular way to end a day of giving thanks!
Went for Thanksgiving lunch. The food was delicious. Always enjoy special holiday meals here.
The food is always good and tasty. The service amazing. It is a go to place.
Vue is a nice restaurant overlooking Dana Point Harbor. We were a party of 10 with kids. Went for Sunday brunch. We were seated right away, nice big table outside on the grass with ocean view. White linens cover the table with coffee, water and juice all ready. Also two umbrellas were already set up over the table. Server Jose was very attentive. We were fine with the brunch selection. Saturday evening, we ate at Overvue, above the Vue. The appetizers were a generous portion. There was a good band playing. They sang to my Dad for his Birthday. Server was also attentive.
Upscale dining with great view. Chicken Masala was phenomenal, generous pours on the glasses of wine, great service.
The service was excellent, & the view is great. It was nice to sit outside & watch kids playing on the spacious front lawn--even though they weren't our own! My husband & I got the Margarita pizza as an appetizer and the Italian meatloaf for dinner. The pizza was just ok, very skimpy on the cheese, but the meatloaf was fabulous. Recommended, especially if you are staying at the hotel.
Friendly staff, great food, amazing ocean view! Chef accommodated all of our specific dietary needs!
Service was not very good. Our server was too casual and not very professional.
