Easter Brunch

Excellent brunch with a huge variety of dishes. Our only issue was with several of the meat-items such as breakfast sausage and BBQ ribs: everything was cold. These items were served in chafing dishes, so there was plenty of opportunity to keep them warm. I can handle cold ribs, but cold... read more

The food was excellent as was the service. We ate outside on the patio overlooking the ocean and watched the sunset. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a romantic couples outing.

I have been going to this restaurant for 20 years and every time I go I am so impressed. I first started going for the early bird specials. And now I go when I am in town for the music and drinks in the early evenings. It is a bit pricey for dinners but are presented lovely and fancy. I... More

It's a great lunch location out on the patio and the service and food are solid and reasonably priced. Dinner was on the gormet side with small portions and big prices but it was tasty.

My spouse and I with a guest dined at Sanderlings on a Thursday evening. All three of us were not hungry and we all had two appetizers. I had clam chowder and crab cakes. The crab cakes were probably manufactured but the clam chowder was awful. I have clammed all my life and could not find a single clam in... More

We enjoyed watching the sun set as we dined on the restaurant's outdoor patio.The wonderful view was matched by the delicious food and outstanding service.I loved my cippiono and my three companions enjoyed their steaks. It was a fun place. Can't wait to return; next time with our dog. Great outdoor dining or inside if you prefer.

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
