The restaurant has a stunning panorama view of the ocean, and really good food. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. This is a handy place to eat, especially if you're staying at the hotel.

Upscale place, I felt a tad under-dressed in jeans and a T shirt, but no one minded. The food was good, the scallops were satisfactory, wine wasn't bad either. The real highlight is the view, that's what you pay for and that's what you get! Not a bad seat in the place. I'd rate it "average" if it weren't for the view

Our family and friends met for dinner at the Surfside Restaurant at sunset this past weekend. The ocean view was fantastic. The food and the service easily matched the setting. Quiet unubtrusive servers with great attention to detail were very helpful in making our choices from an amazingly diverse menu that features local and area grown (and bottled) items. The cost was extremely resonable. Reservations seem to be required, even at breakfast, so call ahead. You will be very glad you did!

Limited availability of times for dinner due to booking of 2 large groups. Lamb was excellent, Salmon may have been overcooked (very soft) but still tasted good.

Dined here twice within a week; loved the variety on the menu, including Moroccan chicken, fish and chips, blue cheese-stuffed pork, linguini with clams, cioppino, and squash pasta. I had tastes of everything but the cioppino, and thought everything except the squash pasta was very well prepared and expertly seasoned. The pasta was fine, just a bit bland for my tastes. The first evening we ate here, it was so foggy we couldn't really enjoy the view, but the food was well worth the trip. The weather cooperated for our last dinner here, and we were thrilled to watch several whales spouting throughout our dinner hour. Also, the house wine is decent (especially the red) and very well priced at around $20 a bottle.
