Four of us came to the resort for the sole purpose of enjoying brunch. Our server was a friendly lady, the bus staff kept our drinks full and the food was very nice. The view was the main attraction but the food was decent. We would return mainly for the setting.

I took my son here for his 21st birthday. We live in the South Bay and I wanted something special, but close, to celebrate his milestone birthday. From the moment we hit the property, we were treated with care. Valeting our vehicle was easy, the grounds are beautiful, and the staff is so friendly and positive, you feel like you... More

The food is highlighted by produce grown on site. The whole resort is covered in fragrant rosemary, I had a unique salad with native mustard that was perfect. Very Napa feeling to it. The fish I had was disappointing, but something told me not to get it and I should have listened to my gut. Order something besides fish. For... More

The staff was very helpful, the food was very good, dessert was out of this world and ocean air to breathe in - what's not to love?

I have dined here twice now and both times were very very good. The menu changes with the season so don't expect to see the same dishes again. The food is outstanding. I had the best gazpacho soup ever. Refreshing and light, like it should be yet so many restaurants get it wrong. The wine list is very good and... More

they have a great menu here, pulling from a wide range of Mediterranean influences. There is a good wine list but we opted for champagne as for an establishment such as this it's actually very reasonably priced. The food was just delicious - scallops like heaven itself and the service superb. This is a great choice for a special occasion... More

Real memorable dinner... Our server was fantastic, we were in no hurry and she just let us go at our own pace. She made some simple recommendations for food and drinks and that's how the evening started and went along. She made a recommendation and we said sure bring it, we'll try it. Wonderful tastes, paired with wine or cocktails... More

This is a must do if you enjoy a nice dining experience and don't mind paying for it. We were staying at the resort so also had the convenience factor. We enjoyed the crab cake appetizers and our main courses of duck and scallops with a side of Brussels sprouts. All were very good. My daughter pasta was just ok.... More

The best Terranea has to offer. Expensive but good value. Sophia, Trey and Simon offered great hospitality and made this place really stand out in a mediocre resort. Thanks guys. You should be running the place
