Great Food and atmosphere

This is really a 4.5 rating. Asked for a window view as were celebrating inlaws anniversary. Immediatley got seated there. Very busy for a Wed night, but expected in summer. Weather & views were gorgeous with sun setting. Beet salad was yummy with a generous piece of Humboldt FOg chees on... read more

We stayed at the resort and were planning to go to Phil's in Moss Landing for dinner. Traffic was bad so we thought "what the heck" let's go to Sanderling's. We weren't expecting much as we figured it would be middle of the road hotel food. Boy were we wrong! Our server was Jada and she was nothing short of... More

We like to keep it local and picked Sanderlings for our 5th anniversary dinner. We were not impressed. Our reservation was set at 6pm and very few tables were filled with customers. We found the service extremely slow. The website stated local dinner specials at a fair price. Our server never mentioned that and we should have asked. The value... More

Tried the calamari and the coconut shrimp and both were very good. Service was okay but bartender was not very friendly.

Noise level was obstructive that I couldn't hear my date and had to keep asking "what" when we were talking the table next to us were loud and obnoxious. Staff seemed young and inexperienced, asked about some wine and dish selections and they had to keep going to the back to ask - and even then they didn't have a... More

Restaurant overlooks pool patio, ocean bluff and ocean. Coffee as strong and delicious. Coffee cake came with plentiful fresh berries. Bacon had been recommended to us and it was AWESOME! Good size meal, fresh and tasty, good price.

We ate here for an 80th birthday party recently and it always amazes me when an establishment is able to make fresh, tasty food for very large parties when some restaurants can barely do that for a party of 4! We did not have a reduced menu, we all ordered right off of the main menu. Appetizers, cocktail and bottles... More

We ate both dinner and breakfast here and enjoyed the meals very much. The roasted artichoke was among the best ever and the salads tasted as though the lettuces were picked that afternoon. The breakfast was lovely as well with nice servings and beautiful fruit. The restaurant is a reason to stay here!
