    It was our first time to The Farmhouse and it certainly met all the raves we had heard. It was unusually busy for a Monday but we took it in stride and our server, Kelly, made any inconvenience melt away. Gracious and helpful to a fault, she guided us through the menu and every recommendation was spot on. We are already planning our next visit.

    We had not visited the Beachcomber for a meal in some time, so were absolutely delighted with our meal and our service. Of course the view did not disappoint either!! I do want to make a special shout out to our waitress. Unfortunately, I cannot remember her name, but she called me "Bella" when asking a question. She was a very, very good waitress. Also a special shout out to the chef as our breakfast meals looked as good as they tasted. It was a perfect breakfast. So grateful also that we could make an early morning reservation as we were able to eat and then beach walk off our calories. Yay!

    Went to Mastro’s with my husband for our 15th anniversary. “Happy 15th Anniversary” was printed on our menu. That was a nice touch, thank you! Everything was actually great, until dessert. We normally get the signature butter cake, but I also ordered the cheesecake as well. Our server let us know the cheesecake was on the house before it came out which was very nice. But I was so sad when I had a taste of it. It was way over baked, dry, not creamy how cheesecake should be. I’m a baker, I know how cheesecake is suppose to taste and look like. It was curdled and the crust even tasted burnt. In hindsight, I probably should’ve let our server know to let the pastry chef know but I didn’t want to make a big deal at the time. My husband and I used to have dinner at Mastro’s 1-2 times per month when we were dating and before kids. Now it’s become maybe a once a year thing. However, the last few years we decided to venture out and try new restaurants but was disappointed each time. This year we decided to go back to our special place, and I’m a dessert person, I will always leave room for dessert. I was left disappointed with the cheesecake. But thank you for the great service and food.

    Pluses: Welcoming; waitstaff is professional, helpful and sociable. Food is very good (we had the shrimp). Drinks top notch (try the pina colada, very nice). Minuses: A bit too noisy inside and busy. Maybe avoid at busy times if you want something quiet and intimate.

    We loved our dinner for four at Las Brisas! The cocktails were interesting and delicious. Our entrees were wonderfully prepared. Our server, Jose, provided great service throughout the evening. He was very attentive and helpful with our questions about the menu and the wine service with dinner. The views are spectacular.
