Excellent service and outstanding and impeccable food. I like my filet mignon well done and it is a sign of an excellent chef when your well done steak melts in your mouth and you don't have to season a think because it is spot on!!! The desserts were decadent and the plating a piece of art. Highly recommend this restaurant... More

Went here for breakfast while staying at The Intercontinental Hotel. Nice bright dining room with full breakfast menu. It could easily be set up for a buffet breakfast but was not when we were there. French toast was fabulous and so was the lox platter,

I'm a local and had heard the food is good here but it was a real disappointment. I ordered the calamari which was super chewy, not fresh, greasy, and very bland. Even the sauce that came with it had no taste. I had to add hot sauce to it to just eat a few pieces. The artichoke my friend ordered... More

Good quality fine dining. The view is stunning, but in day light the restaurant does lack a little wow factor.... But just look at the view.!! Food was lovely.... I had steak, my wife had Halibut. Delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Went here for lunch. The food was good - tasty, served promptly. But only a 3 rating because we didn't enjoy our meal, as the ambience was all wrong. A few too many staff being busy by sorting cutlery too much (the loud clattering... sounds picky until you spend a meal listening to it). And people who felt happy coming... More

Thought this might be a better option to Bubba Gump next door. It turns out it probably wasn't! Over priced. Poor quality.

The service was excellent, the food amazing and it has one of the best views of the bay. The patio area is nice, but bring a jacket even in summer, because it can get chilly. The space heaters do help with this.

I was heading out to grab a coffee one morning while staying at the hotel and the front desk suggested I try their coffee. I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious their cappuccino was. I also grabbed breakfast there both mornings (mainly because nothing else was open at the time I was eating) and it was decent. The service was... More

We hadn't planned to dine here because of a couple so-so reviews, but we had 3 really nice experiences. I encourage travelers to eat there. The space is nice: open, contemporary, bright, every table having a view of the bay. At night, you can sit out on the deck near a fire sipping your drink. The first night we had... More

The C Restaurant is great. It has excellent views, service and food. Steak and eggs were great. A great place to fuel up before hitting the Aquarium.
