Best View on West Coast! We ordered Steak and Lobster OMG Sirloin instead of Tenderloin over cooked. Lobster the size of a prawn and that was cut in half and over cooked. Very disappointed. Went for breakfast with family and friends. Sour dough bread soaked...in butter. Pancakes served no butter and cold Next morning how do you go wrong with breakfast! Rubber eggs toast soaked in butter. I have ate in this Restaurant over 50 times recommended it to hundreds of tourists. I know cooks change menus change but way to many mistakes in the cooking...but the view is astronomical.I do recommend the clam chowder it was excellent!More

Great selection of spirits and wines that complemented a stellar bartender and unique perspective under a west coast wave!

Went for dinner tonight - service was okay- food not so much - fish and chips greasy and my partner found a bone in her fish - coleslaw was in the same serving size container as the ketchup and aioli on the side- fries were...hot on arrival - not piping but hot and cooled rapidly so had been warming - and were the ends of the batch - mentioned this to our server and he said thanks for telling me - searched to find one long enough to eat - beef dip had fatty, bits in it hard to chew - overall grade C- - staying at the resort - not eating in againMore

Came in for the Christmas dinner menu on Christmas night for dinner. We’re able to get a reservation. Ambiance and feel was super cozy. Drinks were amazing! I highly recommend the corpse reviver no.2 and the mai tai infused with rosemary and mint. Dinner was...good. They had run out of the soup that was to be served with the 4 course dinner menu and instead of telling us they just gave us another soup - this didn’t work for my vegetarian friend as the new soup they gave us had meat in it. They were happy to replace her soup with another soup and apologized for not mentioning that they had run out of the menu soup. I had the venison which was cooked sous vice and quickly grilled. So tasty and the reduction and veggies it was served with was absolutely amazing ! Desert was also lovely - sticky toffee cake. I am looking forward to coming back to this spot during the day to check out the awesome views! Will be back :)More

The bar is built to make you feel like you're in a breaking wave, but results in an obnoxious blue glare through the rest of the room after dark. Compensated for by great nachos, which we found were necessary after an unsatisfying dinner at Fetch.

We decided to grab a drink and some snacks in the Float Lounge as it was one of the only places that was open at 3pm in the afternoon. We were seated quickly as we were the only ones in the entire restaurant and ordered...caesars to start. Our waitress was attentive and helpful the entire meal. The caesars were tasty but the garnishes they were served with were all limp looking. Between the four of us we ordered fish and chips, mussels, wings and nachos. The nachos were nicely layered and were served with crème fraîche instead of sour cream which was interesting and the wings were as you would expect. My friend did not enjoy or finish her fish and chips and remarked that it tasted like it was straight out of the freezer. The mussels were good although the sauce was watery and there was a large amount of veggies within the sauce. I find places like this rely on people coming to see the exceptional views instead of focusing on serving about average food. I’d come back for a drink and the views and have dinner elsewhere.More

After long journey decided to eat in hotel. They had a relatively small choice of dishes but it suited us to have something simple. Our food was well cooked, the views were great as it got dark, and the atmosphere was nice.
