We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was a delightful experience. It is certainly on the high end for cost and reservations are a must especially if you want good seating by the windows. The setting sits just at the begining of The Cliff...More

Came for lunch after Cliff walk. Youre Paying for the view- food was decent. Did not like the ceviche (no flavor/bland) which they happily took back. Nice servers. Would return

We happened to stop by for lunch after passing it on the Cliff Walk so many times. What a hidden gem! We had the best couch seats overlooking the ocean while we tried some fun appetizers (pork slides "of the moment"), a pizza and some...More

I've read some of the "Terrible" reviews and can not agree with them. My only disappointment was the service which was slow, but that could have been retribution for being a solo diner.

The view is wonderful, the building is historic and lovely. The service is low bar, across the board, all wait staff was very immature, unclean and off putting. The food was not well done either. The risotto was over cooked, the lobster had lots of...More
