Five Stars For a Reason 9/17/2010

From the time you take the quaint elevator down to the creekside restaurant until you leave, you will not be disappointed. Don't have a lot of time? Then you can walk into the bar area. My favorite item on the menu is the blackened lamb. The only thing one must be aware of is that you WILL need reservations. more

A must for your out of town guests 11/13/2009

A must go to when entertaining out of town guests, they will be delighted with the unique decor and delicious food. Pricey, this is a special occasion place for a full meal, but a fantastic local's secret for happy hour - get great small dishes and well mixed drinks at good prices and enjoy the atmosphere of the bar. Pros: Good food, great surroundings! Cons: Can be a little loud when crowded more

best place 11/12/2008

the shadow brook has a great steak and they dont check id... good food nice waiters bar a different smaller menu... Pros: no id check good food more

Best sirloin I have had on the West coast 10/20/2008

This was a GREAT experience. Location on a hillside. Multi level and very appealing to the eye. The meal was the best I had in a weeklong visit to the Montereyarea. It was reasonable. Good waitstaf Perfectly cooked beef. Would have felt comfortable whether I was with children or with someone special for a romantic dinner for two. Wisg this place was closer to home. Did I say the beef was fabulous?f more

Gorgeous atmosphere....But the food falls short 6/13/2008

This is absolutely a beautiful and romantic restaurant. Which is a really good thing, because the quality of the food was disappointing. Not to say that the food was terrible - it was very average - but I definetely expected a little more of an impressive meal. more

very pretty, but food does not measure up to expectations 10/12/2007

Upon arriving at Shadowbrook and seeing the beautiful gardens and landscaping you can't help but anticipate that it will be a very special restaurant. Parking is high above the actual restaurant and you can either walk down the stairs and by the gardens to get into the restaurant or take a slanted elevator/trolley down the hillside. The restaurant is very pretty and inviting in a pleasant, rustic type of way -- quite a welcome change from the plethora of sleek contemporary restaurants that seem to abound these days. Unfortunately the food was merely adequate, some of it seemed like it might have been pre-prepared or even pre-packaged. Nothing we had was that special and it was overpriced. It would be a nice place to stop for a drink and perhaps an appetizer and to enjoy how pretty it is, but I cannot imagine bothering to have dinner there again. Pros: beautiful setting Cons: food just OK more

Better than ever 2/17/2006

I have been going here for special occasions for many, many years. (The restaurant is like 60 years old) The last few years have been some of the best meals I have ever had....anywhere. New talent in the kitchen a few years back, I hear. Because the food is so good we now go when aren't celebrating something but when we just want a really good meal. If I could afford it, I would eat here once a week. The bar has its own menu and is just as good as the dining room. Pros: Great food, BEAUTIFUL, Free parking Cons: Can be crowded more

Lived up to the hype! 8/5/2005

Just had a great evening at the Shadowbrook. So many friends had recommended it that we were afraid our expectations would be too high, but the food was delicious, service was friendly and attentive, and ambience was perfect. Booked our reservations with opentable.com and were seated immediately, even though the restaurant was packed full! Nice mix of young and old, casual and dressy. Leave time to find parking on a Saturday night though! Pros: great food, great service Cons: parking difficult more

The Ultimate in Romance 5/25/2004

From the tram that brings you into the heart of the restaurant to the water running though it, there is no more romantic place to dine in the Bay Area, period. Take a drive to Capitola at night, eat at the restaurant, and stay at one of the many hotels for the night and you have the perfect romantic evening. Pros: The Tram, Overall Ambience, Excellent Food more

Romantic 5/22/2004

Married my wife there in 2001, everything from the service to the setting was perfect, Food was good, and the cost compared to other venues available was right in line. When everything in the Bay aarea is so expensive and crowded, why not drive a few miles south and enjoy a very romantic dinner Pros: good service, great atmosphere, uncrowded more

excellent 7/13/2003

we didn't have reservations so we went for the first-come, first-serve seating in the lounge and had the pleasure of sitting in front of the station where chef nico worked.. watching him work was more than enough entertainment. our food was excellent-- places that cost twice as much didn't taste half as good.. view of the river behind the restaurant and the antique elevator were icing on the cake. this is the only restaurant where i've actually wanted to go home and post a review on the 'net after eating there. highly recommended! Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly Staff Cons: Crowded, Hard to find parking more

Craving More! 5/25/2003

Last year my fiance's birthday rolled around and caught me by suprise! Not wanting this to get in the way of her special day, I had to move fast! I had always wanted to visit Shadowbrook and couldn't think of a better time to do so. I will just say the both she and I were literally breathless from the moment we arrived....absolutely everything was PERFECT! From the trolley ride down to the bar, to the escort to our table. Not to mention the outstanding service...and the food! The best either of us had ever had! Thanks for the memories....we will DEFINATELY BE BACK!!! Pros: Great Location, Unique Design, Outstanding Food&Svc Cons: N/A more

Special place 2/10/2003

Fabulous atmosphere! 11/14/2002

One of the most beautiful dining spots in Northern California, creekside setting just a couple of blocks from Capitola beach on Monterey Bay. Gorgeous bar, great food and wine list. Excellent service. Pros: Free parking more
