“Walking back in time, a great experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

An outdoor evening dinner for 7 of us. It was definitely enjoyed by all. The ambience was beautiful and delightful, being able to picture all of the famous stars from the past that visited and performed at the hotel. I would love to stay here overnight sometime. Dinner - I had the ahi tuna appetizer which was excellent, and the seafood soup (had all kinds of quality seafood in it the she shells were easy to handle), The food was excellent but I would say the atmosphere stood above everything else, especially if you like unique and romantic lighting and mid-century architecture. Highly recommended. Service was good, not great. Love the lighted menues, extremely helpful to these old eyes in the dark of the night on the patio. Go there, and enjoy! You won't have regrets, and make sure to go in the day and evening, it has to be totally different. I will be going back.

“Very enjoyable”

The food was superb. I really enjoyed the novelty of the light up menus to see in the dim light of outdoor dining.
