When we got seated, I was expecting a subpar experience. The waiter was dressed in jeans and a tee shirt, and not all that professional looking. He turned out to be very attentive and courteous. Food was very good and reasonable. The meat was very good.

After driving down the coast from San Francisco, our group stopped in Santa Cruz for dinner. After finding a local place to park, the local recommended Gilda's as he had a personal connection. The manager was very nice and took the time to clear a table and seat us by the window. Great view. The waiter however was horrible. First, he could hardly answer questions about the beer selection. Three in the party had a dinner salad, which looked beautiful but they were drowning in salad dressing. I had the chowder, which was just okay. Once we received our food, the waiter never returned to refill drinks or see how we were. They were not that busy and we saw him sitting in a far booth chatting it up with the other wait staff. Once we finally flagged him down for drink refills, he just said "ya" and acted like it was an inconvenience. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. If I was in the area again, I would look for someplace else to try.
