Pre sunset dinner

We called mid day to get a reservation and we were NOT surpized to not be able to get a sunset reservation. We got a 6pm time. We brought our sunglasses knowing the sun would be in the early stages on setting and their would be glare. It was a gorgeous day and we really wanted to enjoy the... read more

Such a beautiful dining room. We have spent several holidays with our daughters here. The staff is expert. The window tables have amazing ocean sunset views. The fresh seafood cannot be beat!

The various dishes were imaginative and excellent, and service was outstanding, but quite overpriced. I recommend driving a few miles north to the Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant.

We made reservations for the Bloody Mary and BBQ Brunch, which is a fantastic concept, but it didn't meet our expectations. At $85 per person we expected so much more. The Bloody Mary bar looked impressive with every garnish you can imagine (and more), but the mixes were pre-made. Some classic and some very inventive, but if you wanted to... More

Was here for a business meal and we ate in a private room at Navio. Everything was perfect. We shared a big raw seafood platter and some tuna and Hamachi.

We had a wonderful dinner here while staying at the resort. We tried something unique for us, which sounded strange, but turned out to be our favorite dish...it was a salad with basil ice cream served IN the salad. AMAZING! Just added a nice cold flavor when mixed together, almost like a very cold dressing. Everything we ordered was wonderful.... More
