I was there with a group and 3 of the 4 of us ordered the Grilled Swordfish. It looked delicious and was a very generous portion... However, it was pretty tough and had the "previously frozen" texture to it. I know fresh Swordfish is a...More

Lunch with a view. Lunch specials are very reasonable for a restaurant that overlooks the water, boats coming and going, seals entertaining you etc.

The best thing was our waiter Max. The food did not match quality for price. The Mai Tais were made with very sweet flavoured rum. I guess I paid for the view.

Wind and Sea, sun and good food. All the things you come to expect in the California lifestyle. Upscale restaurant cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Absolutely great service matched by marina views. Be sure to order the dessert.

Once again, it’s a great location, nice dining atmosphere, and consistently good staff. My BLT salad again was very good, but the two Seafood Bisques was down right awful. So that will come off our list for next time.

Sorry such a late answer but here goes anyway. Yes it can get loud inside and out. But that will depend on what time you go also. It's a big restaurant so it there's a lot of folks inside and everyone is talking. If your... More
