Visited this restaurant with family for lunch. As all outdoor tables were occupied we were seated inside and were the only table in the dining room throughout our meal. 30 minutes later a waiter happened to see us sitting there and asked if we had been helped. Of course the answer was no and he excused himself for a minute... More

Ate here on 10/10/14, with a few friends as we drove from San Fran to Hearst Castle. Beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and cliffs, rocks and waves! Can be easy to miss as the turn into the resort isn't too obvious! But, once we parked and went inside we were impressed with the atmosphere and friendly staff. We chose... More

Enjoyed breakfast after our stay at the inn. Very good food and the service was exceptional. I've never had chicken hash before, but they make their own and it was quite good.

If you are staying at the hotel and manage to get a table on the terrace overlooking the ocean then this could be a marvellous experience. If you are staying elsewhere and have to struggle to find the place, then again with parking and finally find that you are seated in a dark inside corner table, then it is a... More

This place has over priced food and the service was poor. The waiter never checked on us throughout the time we were there. When they did it would take forever to get anything we needed. I wouldn't eat at this restaurant.

Who could top a beautiful ocean view while eating a crab and avocado egg Benedict? Great service by a knowledgeable waiter. An outdoor deck completes the setting.

We had a great table on the patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful! I had the mushroom pepper egg white omelette which was delicious. My wife had scrambled eggs, bacon, roasted potatoes and delicious fresh whole wheat bread. Both entrees were prepared to perfection. Our service was excellent.

We ate off of their bar menu and it is much more affordable during happy hour. The food was good and the service was also good. We had looked at the menu at Pacific Edge and it was more expensive than we were planning on.

We have not been in the Carmel Highland's area for a couple of years and were disappointed to learn that our absolute favorite Breakfast Sandwich has been replaced with the Breakfast Panini. The Panini is good, don't get me wrong - but it's not the original Breakfast Sandwich that they used to offer.

The view from the restaurant is wonderful, and there is patio dining with fresh air and a view. The food was good. Our waiter seemed very annoyed that we arrived close to the end of the breakfast service.
