Pretty good food, Excellent view of the Ocean

The food is pretty good but a lot of it is pricey for lunch. Salad greens were top quality. The service was a bit slow & there was a mix-up with my order, though the staff remedied the situation. Most locals go for the excellent view of the Pacific Ocean on a clear day, and the relatively easy... read more

.... you prefer weak drinks, very few of them, interminable waits, and poor service. If that sounds like you, then this is your place. At any given time on Sunday there were from 5 to 20 open tables. No matter -- we and the other minions had to wait for other full ones to clear. It was almost as if... More

I am proud to be from this great city full of fine dining there is nov excuse for the quality of the meal I had today ... one over cooked crab cake (with almost no crab) cost $15 ... even for a Tourist trap like this that is not acceptable. the rest of the table was served equally dismal, overcooked,...

We usually stop here for lunch when we're in the area. It's a nice spot for California cuisine plus local beers and wines. It's still is excellent.On a Friday there were multiple families celebrating. And when the fog is out you get a stunning view of the beach and the Pacific Ocean. Our only disappointment was the service, though friendly,... More

A very nice little spot along the seafront. Gorgeous views out over the beach watching the sunset on the horizon. Food was great. I had the carbonara which was delicious... slightly small portion but it really hit the spot. I would come here again for sure.

Parking is a horrendous problem for this restaurant and the entire area around it. I ran in and gave them my name and cell #, then went to park. We got a text fairly soon saying our table was ready, but the restaurant could improve a little on their process for getting tables cleaned and getting new patrons seated. It... More

food goor, service good, ambience ok but the views are to die for. If you are a bear drinker there is an abundance of beers to choose from. Well worth a visit. A word of warning taxis are not happy to go out that far so plan your trip.

This restaurant is only good for its views. The food and service was terrible. We were a party of 5 and it took 2 hours for dinner. The Prime rib came out cold, we got 1 out of 3 salads after the steak came. Had to get up and find the waiter several times. Unless you want good views, stay... More

Stuffed to the gills with red meat, we opted for a crab Louie salad. The crabmeat was either refrigerated too long or it was just plain old, reeking of iodine/ammonia smell which we tried to masquerade with bottled thousand island dressing. For $23 I could easily have had a canned tuna fish salade nicoise. The salad consisted of lightly dressed... More

They had some awesome ocean views! Great place to eat at at sunset. The food was all good, and the service was quick and very friendly! My friend and I got 2 of their salads and the the fried calamari. The calamari was a little bland but I would definitely eat here again.
