We were here Oct 7th 2017 for dinner.
The restaurant has an amazing view.. the service and food however.. not as good.
There were two ladies on the floor, the one lady was obviously drunk and smelt like alcohol. She kept bringing drinks to our table that we never ordered.. and would stumble away.
Our server, a young girl.. was quite rude. Actually, more than quite rude.. she didn't smile once. She rushed our order when we said we needed another minute.
Later, all but one of us were finished our appetizers and she stood there impatiently while my friend finished her soup. She just stared at her as if to say 'cmon on hurry up and finish so I can take your plate!' it was super awkward! We laughed it off.. but the same thing happened again as we were eating our meals. She stood there waiting for two of us to finish. We told her we needed another minute please, as we were still eating. As we were still eating our entrees she said 'so no dessert today? no?" .. we still had food in our mouths and just looked up and her and looked confused as she turned to walk away. Why would you ask if we want dessert while we are in the middle of our meal? And in that way? So weird.
The food wasn't great tbh. It wasn't horrible. But for the insane price we paid.. you would expect better quality food and of course better service.

Then again, that view from our table was amazing.

We went to the Oregon coast for our 10 year wedding anniversary, and found this restaurant for breakfast. The server who took care of us was very nice, and even helped us with where to buy local, fresh seafood. We had the crab, and lobster Benedict breakfasts which were so good we went back the very next day before we caught our plane home. EXCELLENT breakfasts, and we plan to be back to the coast again so we'll be back to the cove for dinner next time!
