We had one of our best seafood meals in memory at this restaurant; abalone, Oysters, scallops and Sea Bass. The wait staff was great and entertainment by guitarist John Sherry was first rate. Dinner and wine bill with tip was about $200. Nice views of the ocean, we even saw a wild sea otter outside while we ate. Great job... More

The best hotel restaurant food I have ever eaten and that includes many meals. Don't be fooled by the restaurant being part of the hotel; it's a great place to eat

We tried this restaurant because our hotel deal included two $25 certificates. We went for their breakfast/lunch and were totally surprise and blown away by the quality of the food. My 7 year old son had their chicken fingers, which was really juicy, probably the best children's chicken fingers that I've had. I had their shrimp ceviche (suppose to be... More

The view is great but the service and food quality do not justify the cost. Not a great choice with young children.

Ok so the first night I was there I went into the bar for an appletini and it tasted great until I got the bill, $17. Yikes! But the next morning we ordered bagels, eggs, and a plate of berries and yogurt that were to die for! Scrumptious and reasonably priced.

Select beers and wine at half price from 4:00-7:00 PM. All small plates half price. Beautiful view by the ocean.

Okay the meal wasn't cheap but it was worth every penny. I had the sea bass and it was to die for. My daughter had salmon, son had steak with my husband and everyone enjoyed the meal. Cocktails were delish too

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at the C while we were staying at The Clement. The service was professional and friendly, and the food was very tasty (the kambuchi appetizer was really memorable). If you want to get the best view, request a window seat when you make a reservation -- although the staff was really nice... More

We only ate breakfast, but both days the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The coffee was good, the kids loved the hot chocolate, and the chantilly cream on the waffles was ridiculously rich! They offer a buffet, but don't jump straight to it. There are some gems on the menu.
