We chose this restaurant as a special anniversary dinner out on a recent trip to Morro Bay. We made reservations online and originally when they replied, they addressed it to the wrong person, so I re-replied to make sure that they had us down correctly. They answered and said we were confirmed. Upon arrival, they couldn't find record of our reservation anywhere, but thankfully the restaurant wasn't full, so we were able to be seated.
The restaurant wasn't at all what I was expecting. It's a cavernous space, not romantic feeling at all. It felt more like a hotel banquet room. The view would be lovely, though the night we dined was quite foggy, so there was little to be seen, though obviously that's no fault of the restaurant. There was a live singer/guitar player which seemed more appropriate to a lounge than a restaurant - just some live music without singing would have been fine. We requested a table away from the singer otherwise we would not have been able to talk - it was too loud.
Staff were polite, but not overly friendly. The most pleasant staff member was our busgirl, not the host or our waiter. I had the whole branzino fish, which was well cooked, but would have benefited from a sauce. Asparagus was not trimmed enough and was very woody. My husband had a steak and while ok, was overcooked from his requested medium rare. We had a goat cheese bruschetta to start which was nice. We each had a glass of wine (local to the area) which were both good, but small pours for the price.
For dessert we had their ice cream trio and the bread pudding ice cream was the best thing I ate all night.
For the price, we didn't feel it was worth it and the atmosphere is definitely lacking for a nice romantic dinner out. We wouldn't eat here again.
