When we arrived at the Highlands Inn our room was not quite ready for check in so we went into the California Market for a late lunch. We were seated on the deck, which is new and fabulous and it went down hill from there. Although not busy, the service was slow and unattentive. The wine was served eventually, and... More

We were seated without a reservation about 2 in the afternoon, right at the corner of the patio overlooking the cliffs and ocean. Absolutely lovely view. Unfortunately we were forgotten about and no one came to take our orders. After quite a while we finally notified somebody and from that point on the service was impeccable. And the food was...

We went there on 1/1/2017 for breakfast before we left--we prepared, well thought out, fresh food--delicious--but terrible service; Very slow, understaffed, little attention paid to drinks or whether we were doing OK(and they were not that crowded)..

We had breakfast, dinner and drinks in the lounge at this restaurant which overlooks the ocean and rocks of the coast. It is part of the Highlands Inn resort. Food and service were both very good. Lounge areas include 2 fireplaces. Outdoor patio has superb views as well.

We had lunch here on a Sunday. The view is spectacular. Only to be outdone by the food! We first were here 23 years ago and it's nice to see that the quality has remained.

The cioppino is delicious! Ask to be seated out on the patio on a lovely day for brunch at this charming upscale restaurant located at the Highlands Inn. There is also a delightful gift shop at this restaurant too. Each time we have come here we have enjoyed our meals. Servings are adequate.

This was another unexpected surprise in California. What a great place. I chose it by accident, but the view is spectacular. Be sure to eat out on the patio. The house wines were some of the best I have had over the years....beautiful place.

Breakfast here was delicious! Went a couple of times, and they totally understood gluten free. no breads, but artichokes in place of english muffins worked for me. Pricey for breakfast, but with the view and some good coffee, it was a nice way to start the day, or get a lunch.
