I am thinking it would be nicer to visit here in a smaller party. We had at least 80 people for a work dinner function and there was only one bar set up in our dinner area. It would have been nicer to have more options. The buffet options were average but the desserts were tasty. We did not get... More

My party of 5 were looking forward to a nice dining experience while enjoying a beautiful view of Los Angeles. We received the beautiful view at least. The service and food left a lot to be desired. Service was slow and forgetful, even of the basics - like silver ware - and the food was a huge disappointment for all... More

Amazing view, and a great Sunset Special meal! The price was fantastic, compared to the regular menu items. I had the prime rib and it was excellent. It was chilly, but the staff made sure we had heaters working and couldn't be more helpful.

Expensive drinks and mediocre food at 4 star restaurant process. The service is pretty good and the view is stunning. My suggestion (other than that they actually hire a chef) would be eat at home and go here for dessert and sunset.

I cannot remember the last time I went to a restaurant where I could witness a gorgeous sunset, the city lights of Burbank coming to life and perfect weather conditions, the likes of something you only dream about. Then there's the food, the service and the excuses. Does that make sense? Waiters on breaks as our food sat on a... More

If you are into beautiful views of the city on a beautiful patio, sipping drinks and eating good food then this is your place. We were initially a little disappointed as we had a reservation for 830 but did not get a table until 915 but we quickly forgot we were annoyed when we walked out on to the beautiful... More

Came here with the family visiting from the midwest. It has great views tucked away in the hills of Burbank - drinks good, food good, service pretty good. My dad comes here every time he visits ~ with or without me. It's on my list to revisit.

Came here with friends around 9pm on a Saturday night for few drinks. Tried different drinks and they were just ok. Nothing worth mentioning or remembering about. The lettuce chicken wrap was ordinary. Our server was ok. There was a photographer there wearing same clothes as the other servers whom we mistakenly asked if we can order few more drinks.... More

I have been to many brunches, some certainly better than others. But my most recent brunch at the Castaway Restaurant in Burbank, was hands down the worst I've ever experienced. Most brunches have an omelette station, fresh waffles, eggs Benedict, and other delicious food choices. For the first time ever, there was no omelette station, nor eggs benedict, and an... More
