We ate here on two seperate occasions. The food was fantastic, the service attentive (they know how to take care of kids) and the view to die for. A must go

While overlooking the coastline at sunset we enjoyed Santa Barbara Mussels, enormous scallops and delectable short ribs. The signature drinks were to die for!!!

Great food, varied menu. Friendly staff who remember your names. Elevated seating gives everyone an ocean view while dining.

I am not a fan of eating at hotel restaurants, specially high end hotels, as they tend to serve "fancy named food" that is not good. We went with another couple and waited a little for our reservation which was not a problem as we saw the awesome sunset from the bar. From the menu we ordered the tuna and shrimp ceviche (was exquisite), lobster tacos (very very good), then I had the special, scallops. Delicious choice, other dishes ordered were halibut and and a lobster dish that was excellent. The service was very friendly and always trying to accommodate anything we would ask for. The views are fantastic, having dinner around sunset time would be my choice, however the dinning room if busy will be a bit too loud and noisy.

Our lunch dishes were very good but not extraordinary. Service was top notch as would be expected at the Ritz Carlton. Would eat there again.
