Really loved the view, and a beautiful brunch / breakfast was lovely.
Would love to return and stay there this time, not just enjoy in passing.

Great place for a special get together. Food was very good although I wouldn't say it was the star of the show. We went for a weekday breakfast so it was relatively quiet. We all had a really fun time.

Mussels were amazing, burrata amazing, chowder looked and tasted like it was out of can from Cisco(thick, gooey, bland), omelette was bland and lacked texture and color, they did take it off the bill since we did not eat it, no oysters available until dinner time…we went for oysters and fresh shell fish, 1st server made it clear there was absolutely no deviation from lunch menu lacke luster and we couldn’t order anything else or have special requests, all other servers, bus staff, hostess and grounds people were great. The view is impeccable.

First time back since COVID shut-down. It’s a beautiful location and the views are incredible. Very good service. The menu has been reduced/changed and it’s not very inspiring. I has the spinach salad with berries. It was fresh but nothing to get excited about. And the prices are very high.

Sun was shining, water was blue, sky clear, perfect. Don't ask for or expect a medium rare burger, it doesn't happen, calamari was really good. However the surprise came with the bill, the server said "we don't take CASH" Nowhere was this mentioned, fair warning

The view is the best that nature has to offer.
I had a breakfast sandwich that is so packed with fillings and tasty-I have had quite a few that were very stingy and un-satiating-so this was a great surprise.

No acknowledgment of special occasion. Food is good but crab was a bit salty in Point Lobos. Also could use some garnish on the plates to fancy up the plates for this type of restaurant. The view is always unmatchable so that keeps us coming back. The ambiance is so peaceful.

The California market at pacific edge is a wonderful place.
The restaurant has fabulous views Of the surrounding Pacific ocean.The glass enclosed seating area makes you feel Like you’re up in the clouds.

Service was spot on, food was delicious. The one comment I had was the plate was not complete.

It was missing a fruit garnish. The fresh squeezed grapefruit juice was so rejuvenating.

We will definitely down there again on a special occasion.

Very disappointing they weren't serving dinner. We've stayed here since our honeymoon and have always loved the dining experience. Last year there was no meal service and this year breakfast and lunch only. The $21 hamburger & fries was 4 times the cost of IN-N-Out Burger and not nearly as good. Doubt we'll every eat here again unless the up their game and present good food at decent prices.

We took some friends to Highlands Inn for lunch so they could see the incredible ocean views. While it was a bit overcast, it was still gorgeous and our friends loved it. The food was excellent and we had a delightful time.
