We ate here twice with family. The 1st time we ate outside and watched the harvest moon come up. The second time we ate inside since there was no room outside for another 30 minutes or so. Most of the food was excellent both times,...More

we hoped to have a nice terrace view - but the terrace is small and water down is dirty. We had to wait for our meal after we ordered it about 40 min, and for everything else also took always long time. The service seems...More

The lobster bisque (which is really more of a crab concoction) was not good, but the ala carte crab legs were good! Overall nice location with million dollar view, food meets expectations but isn't stellar.

The food, service, and ambiance are incredible. By far our favourite restaurant on our trip through California. The lobster bisque was unreal!! We requested a table by the window so we got to take in the beautiful view. Totally recommend!!

We had eaten at Schooners before and sat outside overlooking the bay and it was very good so we decided to eat there as we were staying at the hotel. We made a reservation, showed up a few minutes early and were seated right away....More
