In my opinion, this restaurant is the best in town with innovative dishes and a lot of small plates. Service is fantastic and you overlook the beach.

The restaurant has fantastic small plates, an incredible view, and a chill atmosphere. One thing not to miss is the steak and one way to find that out is sneaking a bit of your kids steak and fries meal. The waitress confirmed they are using filet minion trimmings from the main entree. I never made it to the entrees even... More

We stayed at the SeaVenture hotel in Pismo Beach and we had dinner at their restaurant. The restaurant is located on the third floor and has a view of the ocean. Our waiter was quite good. However, our meal was only so so quality. We opted for the prime rib special. Side dishes included a generous portion of mashed potatoes... More

Our reservation was for 6:30 PM, which was an hour or so after the sunset, so we missed it. With the view being what it is, I think this is the main attraction to this restaurant. The average age of the patrons was easily 65 years old. The menu appears to have been recently updated and has a few contemporary... More

Since we had a great room, we did not want to venture far away from it, so this restaurant was right upstairs. Great views, great service, and excellent food to share with each other. Prices were reasonable and very good.

Stopped in here on a rainy Saturday afternoon for a drink and a nosh. Enjoyed our time at the bar watching the staff prepare attractive snacks and house cocktails while we snacked on Carnitas Nachos - quite good! To be truly happy, though, I'd like to see them drop one of the half dozen vodka cocktails listed (variations on a... More

Stayed here on our way to Los Angeles. The hotel is in a beautiful location and we went to the restaurant for a drink before dinner. Unbeknownst to us, on looking at the drinks list, happy hour was coming to an end as it was 5:52pm. I went to find the waitress who had shown us to our seat on... More

We celebrated a milestone birthday here and were not disappointed. We arrived early for our reservation and enjoyed martinis at the bar while listening to live jazz music and watching the sun set into the ocean. Wonderful. We were seated right on time and ordered an appetizer, bottle of wine, and filets and everything was delicious. Our waiter was efficient... More

Well, the only positive thing I have to say is that the view is beautiful. If you're going here to sip on a cocktail and watch the sunset, this is an excellent place for that. However, I wouldn't plan on eating here. I was here for dinner and the food was mediocre at best - like the caliber of food... More
