We stayed at the resort and had brunch here on Easter. It was literally the best brunch buffet I've ever had. So many great options-it was difficult to choose without overfilling! They offered everything from great quality cheeses and meats, to delicious chilled mussels and shrimp, traditional hot dishes like quiche, benedict, eggs and a crazy good dessert bar with... More

This pkace has a fantastic patio that looks over the Pacific Ocean. Great sunset views and the food and service is always great.

If the weather is fine, be sure to sit outdoors, hopefully at a round table with a fire in the middle that keeps you warm throughout dinner. With a gorgeous view and a delicious menu, Linwood's is the perfect place to spend a romantic evening.

Seems the Restaurants are doing good right now as the best were already booked for our Family of 10 weeks before Thanksgiving. My Wife was happy she was able to reserve Chaminade as we are local and have been there several times. Set on the Top of the Hill overlooking Santa Cruz Chaminade is a nice location for brunch. When... More

I sat on the back patio at night. The server was very friendly and personable, I wish I could remember her name! Greta food and ambiance too.

This place was crazy busy and noisy with kids and families when we arrived - it was a holiday weekend and we didn't know this was popular to families. Once the kiddies went to bed (?) it was absolutely lovely eating outside in the chill air with fire heaters and candlelight under the stars. Our food was all delicious, the... More

This place has the ocean view, the high-end bar, the elegant staff, the big wine list, the large menu--got it all! Most of the clients were rather casual for the lunch we attended, though there were a few long dresses left over from a wedding party just ending. Food was spectacular and very fairly priced--try the scallops (a bargain) or... More

We made reservations here for a Sunday afternoon to celebrate my niece's 16th birthday. In hindsight, we should have turned and walked out as soon as we realized they didn't even have our reservation. A mix-up on their part sent us to the small outdoor patio off the bar where we overheard the ONE waiter tell another customer that they... More

Took the whole family for Mother's Day Brunch on Sunday 8-May, including the dog as we were able to get an amazing table on the patio overlooking the ocean. The spread for brunch was as great as it was advertised, and everything that I had was delicious. From eggs and bacon (quite possibly the yummiest bacon that I've ever had!)... More

The food was very good. . The real hi light of the experience though was our server Reggie G. From the moment we entered the grill he was attentive and gracious. My friend and I were unsure about which wine we wanted to order. Reggie was quick to offer us a generous tasting of the house wine which I liked... More
