    We had Cameron for our waiter, and while he was very clear in his delivery, he seemed to be repeating a well rehearsed speech about the food. He had a way of speaking that seemed like a performance. Very theatrical. I didn’t feel like he really listened to us and he virtually disappeared after dessert was served. Speaking of dessert, we indicated we were celebrating both our anniversary and my parents anniversary. That being the case, I would have thought he would have offered us the “ house made gelato special anniversary dessert” before all 4 of us ordered other desserts from the menu. He brought the free desserts afterwards, when we were really full from dinner and dessert. Weird timing. The Francobollo de Granchio is not described as “filled pasta” in your menu, but that’s what it ended up being. The ingredients sounded great, but the end result was not the best combo. It was pretty bland and I was disappointed. Also, a comment about the key lime pie. It is delicious, but the sauce underneath ( orange marmalade? Or something else, I really couldn’t tell) just did not fit. It was strange and the flavor did not go with the key lime pie. We hadn’t been to the Grandview for a few years (since 2019] and the prices seemed to have gone up A LOT. I understand food prices have gone up, but I didn’t feel the quality of the food warranted such an expensive meal. The view made it worth it, but not by much.

    The food was good, but I'm not sure if it's really worth the price. I could probably find similar quality and taste in a less expensive restaurant. I suppose its selling point really is the fact that you have a nice view of the valley and good service.

    Wow, This surpassed all my expectations. We arrived about 25 Minutes early, Table was set up as requested with prosecco on ice. Les was very attentive and took good care of us and offered suggestions from the menu. The Views are absolutely breathtaking and worth the drive up. When sunset hit, Les offered to take pictures for my Girlfriend and I. Needless to say, she is now my Fiance as the whole plan was to propose to her at the grandview. It was absolutely beautiful & something i will never forget. On top of that, food was delicious and Dessert was perfect. They went out of their way to dress our dessert plate with "Congratulations". Highly recommend the Grandview.

    We had a lovely meal on the lower terrace. The views were phenominal. Unfortunately, we had a pesky yellow jacket buzzing around our plates once dinner arrived. As such, one of the upper terraces or indoors would be recommended. Food and service were wonderful.

    Was served medium to well done tenderloin instead of medium rare. The second time around it was close to rare. It was underwhelming for the price. Also, the tables were too close to each other for comfort.

    Went here for an anniversary and had an incredible time. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Drinks and food were DELICIOUS and they even surprised us with a “happy anniversary” dessert. Very special evening with incredible ambiance only fueled by the music they play (lots of Sinatra and incredible oldies that make you feel like a 1930’s Hollywood star).

    Poor quality overpriced wine, and the place tries really hard to give an exclusive ambience, but the patrons can be really trashy. The reason why I won't come back is the fact they messed up my food, brought out the side dish 15 mins after my filet, and didn't seem to worry about it much. Definitely not a premium dining experience.

    The service was wonderful. The drinks and appetizers were super yummy. My husband got the NY steak. Way over cooked and he was not happy with his $90 steak. He also got the twice baked potatoes. They were not twice backed. They were harder then a rock. I got the Market Fish. It was okay. Not the best fish I have ever had. Our guest got the Bolognese Pasta. They loved it! Would go back for the view, drinks and appetizers but that's about it.

    Used to be a good place, but not anymore, service was slow, food is not great. We alway go to this place for dinner. The prime rib has so much fat that we did not even enjoy it. 60% fat and has an after taste. I server didn’t took our over after 20 minutes of waiting. Drinks took 25 minutes to arrive. I would understand if the place was busy but it was not during the time we where there. Paying $300 for 2 with the kind of service we got seems not worth to go back to this place. I’d rather go somewhere else for a good steak and a good service.

    New York steak was good. Lobster was a little under cooked- hard to remove from the shell. Arriving at 630, the sun was right in our eyes for about 30-45 minutes making it hotter on a hot day! Luckily, the wait staff was really attentive to consistently refill our water glasses.

    Our visit this past Saturday was almost flawless! :-) * The host person greet us promptly and we were seated quickly at a table with great view that we requested. * Our waiter (Maxim) was attentive and knowledgeable in providing detail on menu items. The entries we picked that he recommended were delicious. * The almost part was sort of annoying as toward the end of our meal, other restaurant personnel came by a few times to ask if plates can be cleared, suggest that they noticed we slow down do we need anything else, etc... We know when we are asked to go. :-) We did ordered dessert to get them to stop as we want to sit a bit longer to see sunset.

    Overall an experience with the view, but honestly won't be coming back. We came here to celebrate my best friend and I birthday together in the month of September, In my reservation, I had mentioned we are celebrating our birthdays. There was a couple who was seated next to us probably a few minutes after and we felt like they got more attention and a faster pace service then we did with service. I understand maybe ours needed more time to cook, but it was an more than an hour in we're waiting without any updates, but they sang happy birthday to the couple and provide them with a small desert, while they brought to go boxes for us to take home and started packing our food after the delivery of our entree. I just felt like our birthdays celebration experience at the grand view was very much rushed. No one knew we were celebrating a birthday, but only cater to the people next to us... Perception is key, if you're going serve food to the people who sat down next to us 15 minutes later, you should consider giving the people physical next to them an update when our food will be coming when we have been waiting for 30+ minutes. For a fine dining experience I was very upset leaving Grandview, as it was our special night and felt like no one knew, even though we had mentioned it.

    Without question one of the most romantic restaurants in NorCal with the most incredible view you can imagine, night and day. Unique dishes in a first-class setting. Great service and drinks. The food was not quite as great as what you would expect for the price and the setting, however it was good. We will definitely be back - overall a wonderful experience.

    Food is good, not excellent as it should be for the price. Got sat at a wobbly table in a bad area, asked to ne moved to a different table was told it was reserved. (We has reservations too) Half hour later nobody was there so we asked again and got moved. Be careful what you ask for , we then could smell sewer off and on. Sunset and lights were pretty , service not great at all. Won't be going back. Capitola, Monterey or Carmel would be a better choice for the money.

    Everything was great with service, view and food. But when got white wine bottle, we were given jumbo wine glasses and wine was not served in the ice bucket to keep it cold. Later cocktail was not even full glass despite being a very small portion with big price. Worst was the strong sewer smell that hit our table twice, it was strong and we all couldn’t breath though we were in the open outdoor table. For our special occasion and highly priced I was expecting our evening to be perfect.

    Definitely not worth the money. It has a view and that's it. Supposedly the Chef was "famous" but the food was gross. The ceviche was half water. Double baked potatoes were not baked enough. Seafood pasta was absolutely gross. Steak was ok but for a $90 steak I expect better!
