“Very, very good.”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely dinner in a fantastic setting and what was one of the top 5 desserts in my life (a triple mousse). A delight.

“Don't miss this one!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This was our second visit to Windows as we transient from the Monterey area to Malibu and then on to Palm Springs. This year we fortunately dined on a Tuesday evening which coincides with 'oyster bargain night'. We wolfed down one and a half dozen on the half shell with a glass of superb Pinot Grigio. WOW! Their blue points were among the best! and freshest we've had. Afterwards we adjourned to a lovely table overlooking the bay and enjoyed a steamed mussel-clam combination each. Our table server provided flawless attention to our dining and even produced a local coupon which entitled us to a really wonderful decadent dessert. Highly recommend!

“Very good but not great”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

A lovely dining room with a fine view and attentive staff, but the food is perhaps over-rated and it is pricey. Appetizers and sharing a main course is probably sufficient for most.

“A Must for Oyster Lovers”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

If you are in Morro Bay on a Tuesday evening and are an oyster fan, this is the place. Sit in the bar and order them raw or fried for 75 cents each. Have a dozen and their terrific BLT Cesar with blue cheese. Great wine list by the glass or bottle.
