Outback Steakhouse

Reviewed By ArneL534

This review is LONG overdue! My wife and I frequently dine at the Outback Steakhouse and we ALWAYS get the best service, second to none. Don is the host and he is always so fresh and delightful....not so common at many other restaurants. Also, we are frequently served by Brett who is ALWAYS outstanding....very professional and courteous, not to mention so efficient! He, like Don, is very personable and warm in greeting. Thank you both, Don and Brett, for being the persons that you are!The food? As good as the service! We love this Outback and we mention our experiences to so many others.

Sunday evening dinner, not crowded at the Spectrum, even found a parking place by the elevators.No reservation but we were seated immediately in the small room to the left of the hostess station. A bit quieter in there and a little more of a view. Sam was our waiter and greeted us immediately.Love the garlic bread and we both had the large tri-tip with peanut cole slaw. Wife had the sweet potato fries and I opted for the roasted broccoli. Not a good choice. Stringy, and burned, not caramelized at all. Should have had the steamed version.Sam packed our leftovers and gave me a substitute side order. Nice touch.

Brought a guest to 90 Pacifica for lunch. My meal was terrible.I ordered the Prime Rib Dip, with au jus and fries. The truffle fries were visibly unappealing, limp and super-soggy. None of the fries were crisp. They were a total mess of potatoes strips; and appeared (and tasted) as if they had been left in a bowl of water for a long time. After one attempt, I did not eat them and left the mess of watery potatoes on my plate.The au jus was bland and lacked flavor. I'm at a loss about the au jus: it should be easy to prepare hot and flavorful au jus ahead of time. It's not complicated. The only redeeming quality about the sandwich itself was the sliced beef. The sliced beef was, in fact, sliced roast beef. I left the Ciabatta bread on my plate and ate the roast beef separately (because we only had an hour to spare for lunch).My unappetizing Prime Rib Dip meal cost about $21.00. After we left the restaurant and drove down the street, we saw a fast-food burger restaurant, and stopped there; and ordered two new meals to go because we were so hungry. Thankfully, the fast-food burgers and fries were satisfying, and a lot less expensive than $21.00 for my Prime Rib Dip sandwich and fries.For these reasons, I do not plan to return to 90 Pacifica in the future.[Note: The waitstaff at 90 Pacifica was friendly and efficient - thank you very much to them. This review is only about the meal itself and NOT about the waitstaff who did a good job.]

This is a great place for lunch ( I have not had dinner there) with a menu that covers all palets. You can choose from outdoor seating, the bar area or the regular dining area. The service is very good and the menu items unique - I had the tuna tartare appetizer for my meal and it was perfect. My friend had the salmon salad and not only was it beautifully presented but, the salmon was excellent. It was served on top of a large salad with an assortment of farm to table ingredients and a lite dressing. The servers were professional and helped make our meal very enjoyable. I asked the people at the next table how they enjoyed their meals and they said everything was excellent . One person had the pasta and he said it was absolutely perfect!

If you are looking for a good happy hour bar scene then this is the place! Good bar food with a good selection. My favorites are goat cheese and beet salad, Brussel sprouts that are roasted and the fried green beans. The reason for the 3 star rating is the so so service. Everyone seems rushed and not happy.

Nice breakfast place. We had the “Sunrise” and the French Toast. The service and the food was fantastic. Also, this place had no wait which compared to other CA breakfast places can be really annoying. We will definitely go to this location again!

Bru Grill & Market

Reviewed By mktexas95

Been here once before for Father’s Day brunch. The crab egg Benedict was delicious and so were the mimosas. During that visit I noticed they had pretzel bread on the menu. So when I found myself in the neighborhood again I couldn’t resist. Had the pretzel bread appetizer (Bru & Cru). So worth it. The mustard does have a kick; A little goes a long way. Per the recommendation of my waitress, Alise, I tried the mussels appetizer for my main meal. I was not disappointed. Recommend saving some of the pretzel bread for dunking; way better that the garlic bread served with the meal. When I was deciding upon dessert the hostess noticed me pondering what to get from afar and came over to suggest the vanilla bread pudding with caramel sauce. She was spot on. So save room for dessert!!! Great atmosphere and food! Worth the cost.

They have plenty of parking, plenty of outdoor & indoor seating. We were seated right away, ordered drinks and started reading the large menu. I ordered the all American burger with garlic mashed potatoes. My husband ordered his favorite pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. The waiter was friendly and fast and very accommodating.Dessert was a snickers ice cream pie... not for me.

King's Fish House

Reviewed By ulebwise

I prefer to review dishes rather than restaurants so here goes. The Rainbow sushi was good but nothing special. The Encrusted Halibut was absolutely amazing. Having eaten great Halibut in my time, this was the best. It was cooked to perfection- taken off the heat right at the very moment when a second later and it would start getting tough, a moment sooner and it would be undercooked. The spinach was fantastic. The beet salad with goat cheese- gotta have that again. And finally the butter cake. Best I have had. Butter cake is often overly sweet. This was very sweet as it should be- but unlike other restaurants they didn't hide the flavor in sugar. I will definitely return here.

After several visits, the standards seem to be good. Had a beer flight, then a grilled tri-tip sandwich with garlic fries. The mixed drinks are light sometimes but beer is good. I've had good meals and average meals but never a bad one. It's a little loud but it is very festive for a foodie restaurant.
