Casual dining

We had breakfast and a late dinner there. Really good food and very nice staff. We wanted breakfast after they stopped serving breakfast and the went ahead and cooked up a delicious breakfast regardless. Lively bar at night. Good drinks, well trained staff.

Expect great food, also expect to pay for it. I had a sandwich and my wife had a salad. The lunch meals were $30 each. The waiter was very friendly and the view of the water and the hotel grounds was amazing.

Our server David Bustos was amazing and so attentive - helping to introduce us to fabulous and delicious wines. We are definitely coming back for many... More

Even though the weather was turning windy, between the umbrellas, heaters and blankets, we were very comfortable out on the balcony. Definitely recommend the balcony to view the water as well as quieter than inside. The risotto was excellent and the steak tender and juicy.

Our dinner started badly but got better with the tasty food. We wanted a restaurant with a view of the sunset for our last night in Southern California. Although there was nothing but windows, the sunset was blocked by a private dining room. In addition, the cocktails came very slowly so they did not arrive before the sun had probably... More

We ate dinner here while in the area. This has all the ambience of a glorified coffee shop and 20 x the price. The food was average to good, service was very friendly but took forever to get our wine. I would not recommend nor return.
