Ambiance and staff make every morsel perfect

The food was beautifully made and the wine list contains many gems but what makes this place exceptional is the views and the staff. The staff seems to be able to work with any situation, including screaming tired children and adults. The sunset and ocean view can be seen from a multitude of seats... read more

We have eaten here before and found it to be OK on previous occasions. This time we were sorely disappointed by the service. The food is good, we had the burger and a Seafood Louie salad both of which were nicely prepared, plenty of seafood in the salad and my burger was good, hand made and cooked the way I... More

The Halibut was better than the Petrale. Salads were excellent. Soup was good as well. Wonderful experience.

Excellent food and wine in a dining room that overlooks the bluffs and Pacific Ocean in the Sea Ranch development. Service is attentive, wine list is good, but what you are there for, the food and the view are both excellent.

We stopped by for lunch. Had the seafood chowder which was tasty and the special soup which was cream of cauliflower. Had a touch of truffle which was nice. We also both had a wedge salad. I love the wedge and appreciate any restaurant that can take it to a new level but this one was just ordinary. Nice local... More

I have been coming to Sea Ranch since 1987. For the better part of 15 years I come up 2-3 times a year. Over the last few years I have not been able to make it up here. I had breakfast today at the Black Point Grill. What a complete let down and utter disappointment! It took them 10 minutes... More

The food here is very good no matter what you order. The oysters were outstanding. The service is fast, friendly and very helpful. I recommend this place particularly for lunch because the "post card" view. We saw whales spouting and the surf crashing. Dinner is excellent too, but having light to see the view is to treasure.

In the last year the Grill has improved tremendously in both service and great menus. I have attended one of their Wine pairing events and thoroughly enjoyed it. The views are great.
