The photos make it look like the restaurant is on the water but it’s in the mall on a rooftop with buildings blocking any real view of the beach a block or two away. They advertised a dj and Presidents’ Day brunch party. But it was pretty quiet and there was no DJ. the ambience is nice. Decor is modern and upscale. We were optimistic.
But the service was ridiculous. We ordered drinks and they took 45 minutes. Then our order was taken and we waited another 45 minutes. Finally asked them to at least bring the appetizers to snack on and they brought those out. The main dishes took another half hour. The French toast was good. The eggs Benedict was fine.
We ordered coffee and coffee drinks and the coffee mug they gave us had lipstick all over it. Not just the brim of the cup somehow. And the coffee drink was strangely spicy.
Overall it seems like a place that could be great but the service is lacking. Or was the day we went it was. If it was on the beach I might give the place another try. But unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be back.
Dinner was..... Meh
It was a very upbeat vibe, but not very personal. It was nice for a date but not for a romantic date .
Amazing service and great food! We had a really great evening and the ambience was perfect :) 😊
Absolutely loved everything. The burger and the eggs Benedict were top notch. Flavour and our service was out of this world and you can’t beat the ambience
Excelente comida y atención al cliente
I went there on a date and ended up getting mostly everything off the Happy Hour list. We ate a lot of food for an amazing price.
-Arancini ( Risotto Balls )
All for roughly over $100. Great
It was very quiet at 3pm and nice to sit outside. Service was good too. Good place i’ve been meaning to come to for a while.
The service was excellent. Everyone from the hostess, waiter, and assistants were attentive and kind. The food was good, but somehow just missed the mark. Sauces were too heavy, without having a distinctive flavor (white creamy pasta). The butternut squash salad was good, if you prefer a sweet salad, but would have liked a more complex combination of flavors rather than just sweet. I'll come again to see if my opinion changes. I really want to like them!
The ambiance and food were great.
Loud and party like
We ordered the special -duck breast
2 orders one was cooked rare and one was somewhat edible the other was almost raw and you could not I eat it - they took it off the bill but so what -ruined the whole experience
I ordered the mussels appetizer and asked them to make a dinner portion and they didn't .
Not going back
Squishy tomatoes, droopy lettuce, good pizza and nice day to sit outside.
It was nice. Good music also. I love it there.
We had a great time Our waiters were great The food was terrific A great time with our grown kids and there partners Home for the holidays
Truly enjoyed the experience. Great Dj and food
I made a reservation for 1pm to celebrate my birthday. The table wasn’t ready until 1:45pm which put some of my guests behind on schedule. In addition the waitress didn’t take our drink order until we had sat for 20mins. We ended up giving her our food and drinks at the same time because we sat for so long. We came for brunch and the food was good however they seemed overwhelmed handling things.
Great setting, service was fantastic and the food was delicious.
Thats where we brunch my 2 girlfriends and I every sunday.. the host and histesses are gorgeous inside and out
Probably one of the worse dinning experiences I've had! Our server Jon seemed nice at first. One of my friends ordered one unlimited mimosa. There was 4 adults and a 2 year old lunching there. Our server seemed to want to clear up the table after us being there 2 hours. So we proceeded to sit close to the bar where we can steal hang out and clear out the table we were currently at. Mind you we had a child with us. Our server proceeded to tell the bartender at the bar to not serve us anymore alcohol because we were drunk! I got so upset because we each had one drink with our brunch and my one friend had 3 mimosas with her unlimited order. We were no where drunk we had a child to look after but I found it so rude that the server would lie about us like that! I will never step foot at this place again!!!
Great place. Superb wine choices
We dined at their location in Sonoma. We looked forward to having a leisurely lunch, but felt pressured to order, though the restaurant was not very busy. Once our food arrived, we were able to dine at a leisurely rate. The food was not outstanding in taste. I was very disappointed by the chicken sandwich with barbecue sauce. It was very ordinary and the barbecue sauce was the worse I've ever eaten. My sandwich was soggy. The clam chowder was salty, though it had a generous serving of clams.
