Could be great with a bit more attention to detail

If I could choose between average and very good, I would list that for Sunset. The views are great and the space is roomy with a nice fire. We went twice during our week in Trinidad and both times the wait staff are polite and working hard to do their best. The food is ok for a family meal -... read more

After hearing about their "new renovations", we decided to have our Anniversary there. We got seated next to a family having a 3 year old's birthday party, the food service was SLOW and rediculously EXPENSIVE. When I ordered the seafood alfredo pasta, I asked if I could also add chicken to it and the waitress said, AND I QUOTE: "Oh... More

Over the past 20 yrs. we have been going to the Sunset Restaurant and were very excited to see the renovations for the 20th anniversary and we're there for the re-opening. We understood that there were some menu changes and were a bit more affordable. While there were similarities to the old menu, there were some changes. We sampled a... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at the Sunset Restaurant about three times now. I believe it may have one of most beautiful views of all restaurants on the West Coast of the United States. The food is Definitely of Five Star quality. You an request to be serenaded at the table by there in house entertainer.

Nice ambiance, great views, big (yes, I mean big) glasses of wine, and we love the Seared Ahi Salad.

Okay, they have a good view. I'll give it that much. But that's all. The food was awful. Honest to God, I think a McDonald's would serve a better hamburger. The soup had to have come from a can. The service was unprofessional and slooooooow. This place must stay in business for no other reason than the casino. At some... More

Typically, the top 2 rated restaurants in Trinidad are Larrupin Cafe and Moonstone Grill. Sunset Restaurant ranks right up there with these two. There is a new gourmet chef and the food is incredibly good. Sunset suffers from the fact that it is associated with a Casino. Forget this fact. You do not need to go inside the casino to... More

There were three of us for dinner on 1/2/2014. It opened at 5:00 pm and it was just in time to see a fantastic sunset. Our food server was very attentive and very polite. We all had the "early bird special". There were three, but we decided to have the fresh rock cod. It was lightly battered and fried. Crisp... More
