Pleasant Mother’s Day breakfast! I feel like on Mother’s Day, though they should have provided a child’s menu. They did eventually accommodate us and give us an off menu meal for my 5 year old but we had some resistance initially.
Beautiful presentation but overall average flavor, some great dishes and some mediocre. My husband had the salmon special and sea scallops and thought his own preparation of both is better. Brussels sprouts were perfect. Gnocchi was undercooked. Kids burger and fries were huge and delicious. Dessert was yummy. Resort grounds and patio seating (especially out back) is gorgeous. But you could smell the sulfur tubs and the mosquitoes were out the night we were there. I suggest some citronella candles.
Server was excellent but the food was mediocre for the price.
This was the perfect place to celebrate our 19th anniversary. The food was superb and the atmosphere beautiful. The back patio seating was our favorite with nice music and heaters at every table.
Wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious. Atmosphere wonderful and we had an excellent server named Moses.
Our server Moses was great - however he could have used more help. Hard to staff properly during these times; we understand that.
The restaurant was cold, but they let us close the doors which helped. We both ordered the filet mignon at medium rare, and the centers of both steaks were inedibly rare. Like nearly raw. The waitress did ask if they were cooked to our liking, but unfortunately we didn’t have time to wait for them to be redone so we just kept them as-is and ate around that part. The menu says it comes with a “loaded baked potato, sour cream, chives, bacon, and butter” but what we got was a baked potato not cut open with no butter, some sort of horseradish/sour cream sauce over the top, and some bacon on top of that. It was very odd. I will say that the Brussels sprouts were DELICIOUS! All-in-all, it was definitely not a good meal for how expensive it was, and I think we would choose to eat elsewhere in the future.
In general we were disappointed. It's a lovely setting, but 2 of our items were dry and overcooked. It also took a long time to receive our food. Given the prices we expected much more.
This was my first time at this restaurant. I was hesitant to eat at the restaurant where I was staying for the weekend. Mainly because usually hotel restaurant is pricey and overrated. I was totally wrong. Great food, service, and environment. Cocktails were awesome and food was amazing. Our waitress was Dana and she was very nice and kind. Try their wagu burger. You won't regret. Also, burrata cheese appetizer.
My wife and I spent $151 (without tip) for a total of two Margarita “martinis”, one appetizer, one salad, two entrees, and one dessert. The scallops and halibut entrees were perfectly prepared and nicely plated. The chocolate mousse cake dessert, the crab stuffed mushroom appetizer, and the salad were good. The cocktail was fair. The ambiance was nice except that we were next to the parking lot, albeit a tree lined lot with singing birds. The table-side heaters were perfect for a cool night and the service couldn’t have been better. It was a pleasant and relaxing dinner with creative and tasty food .
The crab stuffed mushrooms as a starter were amazing. The $18 wagu burger was exceptional. Wine list is extensive with many local options. Great place to go on a date or to take adult friends .
Appetizers were amazing she always came around to ask if we needed anything and our drinks never went low. The conversation was also pleasant.
We had the most lovely dinner and loved our waitresses suggestions and service. We will be back.
I was mostly plaleased. My filet came out very undercooked. The server saw and agreed it was under cooked. He comped me a dessert, but I only ate part of the steak. I had the Brussels appetizer and had more Brussels and a not so great baked potato with the steak. I did pay full price for the entire, but recommend you do more to train your staff to handle that tight. Offer to remove the plate. Offer a substitution right away. Remove the item from the bill without being asked. I would have been very pleased with my experience. Mistakes happen. Followup matters.
We had a lovely dinner with welcoming, warm, and friendly service. The brussel sprouts appetizer was amazingly delicious, out of this world! The Butternut Squash Gnoccis were outstanding! We had a lovely evening. Thank you so much!
Dana is amazing! Friendly service with delicious food. We will be back!
First time in this area and really appreciated the friendly service and suggestions. We want to thank of their gentlemen that helped us and gave us suggestions to go over the bridge and have some wine. The scenery was beautiful and very quiet. No city noise.
Great location, great waiter but very poorly made food and overpriced for the poor quality of the food. food was overcooked and cold, we were 4 patrons and we all had the same issue. It was not busy, so what was the excuse? Not recommend the restaurant, Sycamore Spring otherwise is great!!
We were able to make reservations for an early Easter lunch, when no one else were taking reservations. Our table was ready right on time and we chose to sit on the back outdoor patio. It was a beautiful day, the service and food were great. Definitely going back.
Perfect breakfast date. We love every single thing we have ever eaten here. 5 stars always
Great restaurant on the hotel grounds. Lovely experience. Waygu burger was excellent!
Everything was excellent! The food, drinks, servers, ambiance, it was all superb. Would definitely be back and highly recommend.
It was my daughters birthday dinner, we were promptly served and check on through our dining experience.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
Jennifer waited on us.
We order scallops and gnocchi entrees and seafood salad Salad and scallops were good gnocchi was undercooked Not aldente, but undercook Not very tasteful
Excellent diver scallops and shrimp linguini. Attentive service and relaxing atmosphere.
The hostess Sarah, very professional and pleasant on phone and in person. Our waiter Moses, professional and Courteous.
Was extremely expensive. With tip, just shy of $200 for 2. We had a gift certificate, had a cocktail each and wine. I had rib $36 ,hubby had steak which was $43. Didn’t come with bread or salad. Had a super awful banana pie, since there were only 2 choices for dessert. Pie had to be a few days old. Not worth the $$ spent. Go to SLO for dinner.
Excellent tasting food. Slow to arrive out to table.
Gives impression nice garden setting, felt like hotel lobby seating. Waiter argued about whether he told us about mimosas where 5 people were sitting and no one heard him and even so, why an argument ? Then after we ordered he told us about the specials?
Again argued that he told us about them prior.
What a wonderful place! Chef Ruiz creates vibrant flavors in this off-the-beaten path corner: at par with the best the Central Coast has to offer!!!
Great experience, but it was a little cold, and food took a little long to come out, but overall great experience.
The ambiance and service was excellent. The food was a little mixed. The stuffed mushroom was very good. And the scallops and polenta were excellent, however the pork belly served with the scallops was tough and seemed out of place in the dish. Also, the shrimp in the seafood salad was overcooked. Overall we liked the place, had a good time and enjoyed dinner.
Food was absolutely amazingly delicious; from the appetizer - calamari Tempura, to the Warm beet salad with bacon, to our entrees; filet mignon and scallops. Oh, and of course the cocktails… both my husband and I had the Old fashion, which was by far one of the best I've had. We ended our dinner with Warm Banana Pudding and chocolate pudding pie.. they were very good, only thing I can say about the dessert is the my banana pudding was cold.. not warm.
Cant wait to go back.
It’s convenient for breakfast if you are staying at the resort. The fresh juices are awesome and out of the ordinary with jalapeños included 😆
Our food was great and the manager was awesome! We had a tiny issue with our food but he was very quick to fix it and super nice with an excellent attitude! We will definitely be back because of the service the server and manager gave us! The host were also awesome!
Great food and service, we look forward to eating / visiting again.
Excellent! Try the deep fried buratta, you will not be disappointed.
Loved the Vegan special and the service was great as usual! We’ll be back.
Restaurant was freezing cold. No indoor heating. Ruined the ambience which was otherwise five star. Meal too pricey for experience...
Server was amazing!
