Should restrict kids from coming to other peoples table and yelling and screaming.... and there is nothing we can do or be judged as bad diners.

Elf food but we are paying for the ambience.

The 7 layers cake and mac and cheese were awesome.

Wonderful evening and service! We had a 5 o’clock reservation snd were promptly seated upon arrival. We started with the charcuterie board which had a very nice selection of cheeses snd meats. 3 of us ordered halibut, 1 ordered the sea bass and 1 ordered the filet. Everyone was pleased with their selections along with the sides. The delicious peach cobbler and churro’s finished off the meal. The views and sunset was beautiful. Highly recommend!

The restaurant was so beautiful and one of the features was the overlook of the pool. As the sun sets the view is incredible. Service wise, it was amazing and our server was phenomenal. The food was also amazing and I would definitely recommend visiting the resort and eating at this restaurant. Every employee treated my party and I with respect and with such care it felt so welcoming. I applaud the chefs and all the employees that work so hard for our enjoyment. I look forward to returning soon.

waited for a table for 30 min then another 30min before ordering, at 11:30 on Sunday they stopped serving breakfast and wouldn't allow us to get it, I asked for some Sourdough toast and they brought out 1 tiny little piece of bread that looked like it was the last piece in the bag - $60 for a few items, Are you F'n kidding me, it sucked and I'll never go back, McDonalds would have been way better!!!

Had great service! We ordered Rombauer Chardonnay and clearly the wine was not Rombauer--- Rombauer has a distinctive taste. Either it was a different winery or the bottle had been sitting out too long. Turns out it was Rombauer but the bottle had been sitting for awhile.

Brittany our server replaced our wine immediately and understood our concerns.

Great food, our table was superlative, the weather was great and actor Miles Teller and his lovely wife (and adorable French Bulldog were sitting next to us so it gave us plenty of table fodder.

The salmon was superb and I highly recommend. The beet salad was also delicious!

We frequent this restaurant occasionally and it’s always hit or miss. The last time we were here it was excellent food and service. Last night, service was terribly slow. The charcuterie board needed more cheese, about three bites total. There was more meat and bread than anything. The hamburger was very good. The kids enjoyed their fish tacos and hamburger. The ambiance is always nice. However, the service is never on par with the menu prices. It would also be nice to have a dinner special or two.

My family and I have been to this restaurant many times and always have a great experience. My most recent visit last week was below the bar that I've previously enjoyed. I took my girlfriend for her first time to celebrate her birthday. We each ordered different plates of fish- hers was very delicious but mine came out dry (and I almost never complain about the food I receive). I sent it back and was checked on awhile later saying the food would be out in a couple minutes. It never came. Once informed, they made one for us to go. I do want to note our server Brittany (sorry if I spelled that wrong), was WONDERFUL with her service- make sure to request her. All-in-all we will still be returning and I would still recommend this restaurant since this was a one-off experience.

From the moment we arrived everyone on staff was 100% accommodating and anticipating of our needs! We were celebrating my dad’s 90th birthday and the hostess made sure we were seated immediately so he would not have to stand and wait. In fact she seated us herself rather than wait for the other host to return to take us. Destiny and Emily who served us were outstanding! Friendly and really kind and of course knowledgeable.
The view was beautiful and serene. Dinner was lovely and we ended with the chocolate cake which was decadent yet light. The texture was delicate and it was perfectly flavored. It was the best I’ve ever had! It was a wonderful and memorable experience. I am grateful we chose it for this special night,
