We went for a steak dinner at Kula Ranch, mostly because the restaurant was very close to where we were staying. Basically the choice was steak or fish, and there were also some pasta dishes and one or two pork ones. We had basic steak dishes and I had no great expectations, as I tend to find steak usually not... More

My husband and I had dinner here with another couple during the Pebble Beach Pro-am golf tournament weekend. While I realize the area was packed with people, there was no excuse for the shoddy service and barely passable food. We were seated promptly, as we had a reservation, but it was 15 minutes before we were brought menus or offered... More

I've visited many times food is good if you like Japanese sushi with a flair. There staeks are could deliciously with specials daily. The restaurant is located on Marina Beach resort and on a beautiful day the view if dining outside is nice. They also have happy hour and serve finger foods at a good price.

The prime rib was good, the server brought it to us luke warm. The salad and mushrooms were very nice, but I would not go back again, except it is golf cart close to your room.

We chose this restaurant because we could walk across the street to it, but ended up saying "wow" to the steak, the rice, the veggies and the salad. My husband and I ordered two salads and one main dish because we saw the huge plates coming out. Generous portions and tasty food - amazing coconut rice especially.

I just had dinner here for the first time. The drinks we had in the bar were good…my old fashioned had a generous shot and was well made. The dinner was a chance for me and a cousin and his wife to catch up after not seeing one another for a long time. The booth where we were seated was... More

We had a very pleasant dinner in the bar area. Our server was very quick and attentive. I love the artichoke appetizer, I have it every time I eat here.

I enjoyed the Christmas menu at Kula Ranch this last year. You will have to book early but the cost is reasonable the food is quite good usually and I enjoyed the surf and turf when Marina has rolled up the side walks for all the other options. Very comfortable in the dining room and there is always the tapas... More

This restaurant is lofted in the Sanctuary Beach resort and is convenient if you are staying there. The menu ranges from sushi to steak - and a lot in between. It's never going to challenge for a Michelin star but it's friendly, lively and offers something for all the family.
