My husband and I dined at Sanderlings on a recent trip to Northern California and were extremely pleased with our meal. Firstly, the view is stunning, encompassing the Pacific Ocean and surrounding resort, the sunset was radiant, service friendly and unhurried, atmosphere elegant but not formal. My husband ordered the seared scallops which he raved about, and I splurged on... More

We made reservations a couple weeks in advance for Sanderling's Mother's Day Brunch. Our reservations specified outdoor seating and tho a few minutes late for our reservation, we had a lovely table overlooking the lawn and down to the sea. It's hard to enjoy a sumptuous meal with a newly walking one year old wanting to explore, but we took... More

Out family stayed at Seascape for a week and ate all over Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Aptos. We ate well too, but our final meal at Sanderlings was top notch. Our eldest son (10) ate the calamari, he loved every bite. The youngest son (7) got the skirt steak and ate it all. We all enjoyed the warm artichoke dip,... More

We were traveling as a group of 4 adults and an infant. We had made a reservation early, at 5:30pm as we didn't want to have long waits with the baby. Pros: *Sit outside - we had the most wonderful view of the water and the sunset, it was stunning. The sun can get strong, but they have umbrellas to... More

There were 5 adults, 2 teens, and two children in our party. The dinner menu entrees ranged from about $20 to $40. My friend requested a cocktail menu and happened to see an all-day lighter fare menu after the cocktail list. We all ordered from this lighter fare menu. My mother's hamburger was dry and overcooked. My Father's calamari was... More

Ate dinner here last night with my husband. We each enjoyed the neighbor specials. Great price and delicious. I had the scampi and linguini. They were tender and juicy. My husband had the ribeye. He said it was cooked to order and tasty. The view and service were great.. We will be back!

Well this is off season, so they had minimal staff and not many customers. We had very good, if not a bit rushed service, but that was ok. The meals were not up to par. Wife had short ribs that were tough and dry. I had their special steak, which our waitress assured me was the same as the rib... More

I had heard a lot about the Monday through Friday lunch specials at Sanderlings. Only $7.95 for your choice of three great items. Fish & Chips, or Baby Back Ribs, or Pizza Margherita. I went to try their Fish & Chips. While they were undergoing a MAJOR renovation, my meal was accompanied by some drilling and hammering, which made me... More
