There's nothing like cocktails and appetizers on the veranda at sunset. Its not cheap, but the hotel itself, and the service to maintain it, isn't either, and our drinks were perfect, as was our food. Perfect evening.

We dined here on a day trip to the resort. Parking was very difficult - the hotel lots were all full, so we parked on the street. The rate is only 25 cents per hour, so that was a pleasant surprise. We were immediately seated and greeted by a very friendly server. After getting a glass of wine, we had... More

The food is divine! Fresh and delicious! I had the fish tacos and they were fantastic. My husband had the halibut and he really enjoyed it and the veggies that came with it. The service is wonderful and friendly. Worth waiting if you have to. Highly recommend.

We were given nice sitting outdoors but it was drizzling and brought inside; much less desirable in an area with larger family groups and children; food is fine, obviously on high side of price scale. Our server was a veteran and made us feel very comfortable. Just pick nicer day and sit outdoors! Parking is comped for 3 hours if... More

For the prices and "elegance" of the location, it was a bit disappointing. Maybe it's because I'm a restauranteur and I notice all of the the details but nonetheless. My menu was dirty, the sugar caddy was dirty, my food was auctioned off by the food runner, the appetizer plates weren't removed by the time the entrees arrived, the french... More
