Hostess ruins the evening 8/9/2008

Maybe it's because we were there in high season. But I doubt it: The restaurant was only about two-thirds full. We arrived ten minutes prior to our reserved time. The hostess asked us to wait in the bar, which was fine. She told us that she would get us as soon as the table was ready. FORTY MINUTES later, we were still in the bar. I went back to the hostess, who didn't even remember that she had sent us to the bar. She looked at me nonplussed (i.e. confused). I reminded her that we had checked in 40 minutes ago. Finally, two neurons connected and she mumbled, ""Okay, your table is ready"". Pros: Fine ocean view Cons: Hostess should be fired more

The view alone cannot make up for their average food and bad service 2/22/2008

I went there three times. The first time I was not impressed with the service. The second time, I went there for dinner as well (gave them a second chance because of the view), and again, the service was disappointing. The minute I told the waiter that I only drank water, his mood and attitude changed - he was slow and unfriendly. The food was average, bordering on tastless. Somehow my husband talked me into going there for brunch - I must be a glutton for punishment, but even I have my limits. It was overcrowded, which overwhelmed the staff. It took forever to get the food and when it came it was cold and not at all that tasty. Pros: view Cons: everything else (food, service) more

Clae's - Fresh food, attentive service. 1/1/2008

Just returned from Claes and was leery because of some of the reviews here. But, it was open on New Year's so we gave it a shot. Pros: Freshness and creativity of the meals Cons: A little pricey, but not much. more

would recommend 10/29/2007

Amazing view, great food , great service. Portions a little small... but very tasty. Not a huge menu, but what is there is delicious. more

PRICELESS VIEW 4/5/2007

Relax with locals, and enjoy the panoramic ocean views. Pros: easy parking, great views, friendly staff and great service. Cons: wear sunglasses if Al fresco dining! more

I won't be back 7/7/2006

The best I can say about it is, the ocean view is great during daylight hours and the wine list is pretty good. The food's another story, though. Lumpy, off-tasting soup, sopping wet salad, tough, overcooked shellfish stew. We sent most of it back and they did credit our bill. More than just disappointed, I was shocked at the quality of the food here. more

great view and good service 7/20/2005

it's a small restaurant in a small yet charming hotel on pch. i remember going here almost every saturday for breakfast buffet (i always wondered why my parents didn't go to the las brisas breakfast...) and i've always enjoyed it - it had a very comfortable atmosphere, good service and great view of the ocean. anyways, they've remodeled a few years back and it's still a very comfy restaurant with great service and view, now with better ambience. kind of pricey though in my opinion, however everything else including the food make up for it. Pros: good eats, good service, niiiiiice view Cons: price more
