Wonderful staff; great ambiance. Ate here as often as we could and loved it each time. Calm, peaceful setting, great food and lovely service. What more can you ask for?

Me and my girlfriend just recently went here for our 6 year anniversary and had the time of our lives. We have been before and loved every second but this time was far exceeded our expectations. The entire staff remained extremely attentive during the entire meal from the rose pedals on our table to the complimentary small bites, everything was... More

The Sol is to die for and they have a very extensive wine list. It was an amazing experience. The only fall back is that its fine dining and there were a lot of kids there because no other places in the hotel were open.

Took my gf here from out of town, she absolutely loved it. Top top notch food, fresh and unique drinks, very professional yet easy to talk to staff. Every dish was articulately explained and wonderfully prepared. Literally no complaints- slam dunk date.

Without a doubt the best restaurant in California hands down!! The avacato burrata cheese balls were like nothing I've ever tasted!! And to top it off it came with edible gold on... More

Build out is beautiful and inviting. Can't believe I missed it during rest of stay. Bartenders Stephen and Ryan found us dessert and gave us the most... More

I can't say enough good things about the experience here. Fantastic cocktails, huge wine list, great atmosphere, stunning view, incredible food, friendly and attentive staff. Tried a whole range of things from the menu, and the sommelier did a fantastic job of selecting wine pairings for each course. I could not recommend this place more. I will absolutely be making...
