Average service; the waitstaff did not ask for our name or room number for the check. When we finished brunch we had to stop and tell the hostess we had not paid; the hostess had to track down the server who then started a tab.

It took forever to get a table and eat. The manager was nice enough to get us a bread basket for our hungry kid after we asked for something, but the hostess did nothing to help. Our meals were good once they arrived.

I have eaten there twice in the last two months, we intentionally went there for a birthday dinner this week knowing the service is horrendous but the food is really good. It's a shame because someone in the kitchen is knocking themselves out but the service experience would make Gordon Ramsey completely freak!

What went wrong? Sit down and given two menus (for five people). There aren't enough place settings and it seemed no one noticed until we asked for more. We finally get napkins and silverware (it took ages) and waited and waited for bread. Bread arrives but only three of our five folks have bread plates (we got up and took them off of empty tables). Food is served only one meal is going to be "just a sec". We tried to wait for her food and finally she insisted we eat. We were more than 2/3 done when her food finally arrived - and it was a Pizzetta! That should have been done first! The amount of time we were left in between being visited by the waitstaff was amazingly long. This mess has happened both times I was there - lunch and dinner.

The upside. The view is awesome. The food is outstanding. I wish someone really cared about the service aspect of the meal because if they did, this would be one fantastic place. Chaminade has come a long way in the last couple years. I hope they work on this problem!

Made a reservation and was seated at a great view table overlooking Santa Cruz with a colorful sunset backdrop. We started with a special marinated tomato and cucumber salad sprinkled with parsley and accompanied with a toasty piece of bruschetta. The light vinaigrette dressing was perfect. One entree was the pork tenderloin with a tasty adobo sauce plus mashed taters and vegetables, the other was steelhead with mashed taters and vegetables. Both entrees were very attractive ensembles and delicious. The portions were a little on the small side but tasty. The vegetables (green beans, baby carrots and Brussels sprouts were cooked in some special way so as to be tender but full of flavor (perhaps one of those vacuum methods). The service was friendly and their wine menu had a number of local wines by the glass. On this occasion the bar located right next to the restaurant area was quite noisy with a large group enjoying their adult beverages. We've been to Linwood's in the past and this is not usually the case. In warmer weather they have great outdoor seating on the patio, highly recommended.
