“A special occasion dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

If you want a fancy expensive dinner with an unbelievable view and first class food and service. This is for you. That's what we wanted and it was wonderful. You may or may not see a sunset based on the local conditions but the view is always stunning. We had dinner here with another couple celebrating our anniversary. We found the atmosphere ,service and food to be very good. We had appetizers , main entrees, one dessert to share and a bottle of wine and our bill with tax and 18% came to just under $400. If you want the same experience but at less cost , do a bar menu tapas style dinner in the large lounge. Same view.

“Extremely disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The view of the Pacific Ocean is magnificent and I was really looking forward to a wonderful dining experience. Instead, entrees took 53 minutes to arrive and then food was just so-so. Very expensive. Almost sent entree back but didn't want to wait another hour. Had to ask for water. Waiter was very nice. Needs a new chef.

Good menu selections. Everything was very good, presentation was good, service was good. Amazingly LARGE wine list! Just a bit pricy for me

“In search of a sunset.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We set out in search of great food with a complimentary sunset, a group of 5 friends. Even though we were disappointed about the sunset, the food and service were still most excellent. You just never know when your reservations will fall on a rainy sunset-less evening. It was still good and the only disappoint was completely out of anyone's control.

“Birthday treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Excellent menu, superb service and the view is to die for!!! Very romantic . The caviar was great and watching the ocean view while dining is heavenly. I had the scallops which were cooked to perfection.
