Service was terrible, we ordered drinks before ordering our meal and our first course arrived before our drinks did. It was almost 1/2 hour before our drinks arrived. I actually had to go up to the hostess and inquire where our drinks were. Had to send back one of the drinks as it was not what we ordered. Food was average at best. Not worth the money.
Simply the worst experience. I made a reservation a month ago and they double booked my group of 10 people. We set by the bar with horrible service. The manager, Mike Frey, needs to learn hospitality and customer service 101. The staff was very inexperience and unable to provide basic service to our group. The list of issues is quite extensive and as a manager he should have handled the situation much better. Asking the staff to lie about his name, walking away when a customer is expressing their discontent about the issues during the dinner service, to not knowing how to apologize was very frustrating. I will not only go back, I will never recommend this place. Other guests from adjacent tables were joking about how the their experience has been equally negative. I hope upper management take a closer look at their restaurant customer service as I guarantee this is not an isolated issue.
Good spot but limited menu. Drinks pictures look better than they actually are. Drinks pictured with fresh fruit do not have it, they have a fruit liquor. For example the watermelon margarita was made with Midori. Wine list is lacking overall. Food was good. Service slow to start them quickly fed abs out. Nice buspersons. Very helpful. Compared to anything in walking distance it’s better than what you get on park Ave. Restaurant closes between 3-5 so don’t order food - you won’t get it, even by 530…..
Took my husband here for Father's Day and it was the worst experience we've ever had in a restaurant. We waited a total 50 minutes for our food which NEVER CAME!! Our waiter couldn't care less, he took our order, brought me coffee, then we didn't see him anymore. My husband got fed up when he saw our waiter standing around goofing off with other wait staff. He asked him about our food and the waiter said "oh let me go check." 5 more minutes went by then we left. Zero professional behavior here.
So I came here for the ambiance having little expectations of food. The food was pretty awful and not cheap. I got shrimp tacos on their lunch menu , cabbage three shrimp a piece of avocado and three slivers of pickled onion. No salsa, no pico? No nothing it was so sad. My husband ended up with a pizza because the lobster roll was sold out. He said it tasted like dough. And the kids pasta was hard and watery. So overall pretty awful food for a hundred buck bill. Next time I’m going to eat at a truck on the boardwalk if I want the oceanfront vibes.
Very good food at reasonable prices BUT the tables and floors were not cleaned properly.
Some of the glasses and utensils were dirty.
For the prices being charged, the service and quality is terrible. The waters were never refilled and even when we asked, they would only refill the water of the person who asked and not the whole table despite their empty glasses. We asked for bread for a diabetic person dining which they denied. Appetizers and entrees came out at different times, then we would have to wait for a very long time only part of orders to arrive without the other half. The server completely ignored us at times, the drinks were terrible and very pricey. If I had been at a dive bar, the quality of drink would have been expected, but not when spending $14+/drink. The beautiful decor of the space doesn't mask the poor service. We were just handed a check, not even asked if we would like dessert. When we tried to speak up about our experience afterward, the front host said "Yeah, it's not good" and left it at that. For a $500 dinner, we were embarrassed to have chosen the Atlantic to have dined in with a guest. I hope there are some big changes coming to a space that has such potential, but can't even do basic service.
It was our anniversary .
We went for breakfast on our anniversary. The staff and view was amazing. The breakfast was over priced and was the quality level of a busy deli in NY city. Very disappointing.
Basically horrible… The food was called and it look like a lean cuisine
This restaurant used to be one of my favorites! It definitely hasn’t been maintained. Everything looks old and worn. My server was friendly. Food was mediocre. But this restaurant is where we would go for ambience. They need to do a thorough cleaning & revamp!
Horrible service, we were seated an hour before we got our food. The bar did not have any of the drinks we asked for. Food is over priced for what they serve.
The food at this place is vastly improved from prior years. However, the service continues to be abysmal.
I keep coming back to this place because it is such a beautiful spot and convenient for me. I hope with each change of management they will finally get their act together. I have come here at least a couple times a year since they opened over 10 years ago and at first they had a real Chef and real trained waiters and it was wonderful but thru each bankruptcy, chapter 11, reorganization it has gotten progressively worse. We were seated at a table with a fraying place mat that poked my arm thru out the meal. The menu was limited and unimaginative and over-priced for the quality of the food and the presentation. The staff was pleasant and helpful but clearly just not trained well. What can I say, I will probably try again but it is just a shame!!!
Meeting with a friend
Convenient location. Nice view especially tables by the window. Food was good. From the time we sat down until ourappetizers were served was over an hour. Requested bread basket three times. Appetizers arrived and we were missing one soup and instead of mushroom pizza we got a side of mushrooms even though we specifically requested pizza not be brought out with appetizers. Took another 15 minutes to bring second bowl of soup. Waiter never asked if we cared for more drinks. In fact after dinner order we never saw him again until we spotted him by register and we chased him down for check. Food was good - nothing great. Luckily, we were not in a hurry. There’s really no other restaurant right on the boardwalk so if you are looking fir the view this is it.
Our waiter was exceptional. Went above and beyond!
Totally enjoyed an afternoon get together. View and people watching were great. Our food was very good but we thought the menu was limited. Prices were not over the top.
My wife specifically told talita no onions. He repeated it. Her order came with onions. She ended up only having a shrimp cocktail. They were overcooked. I had the burger and fries. It tasted fair
We made a reservation for Outdoor seating. When we arrived at the restaurant, the host said that they weren't offering outdoor seating for several more weeks. We were disappointed to say the least. They did offer us an indoor table, but we had no interest in sitting indoors, especially since it was fairly crowded and it appeared that the seating was too close together.
Awful experience. Service was incredibly slow. Think the staff was overwhelmed but unacceptable service. Management do better. Food was questionable and overpriced. Small portions. Menu was pathetic. Recommend eating anywhere else nearby. Do not give this place your money. It will be wasted. It’s not a place worth eating. At best grab a beer and run.
Ambiance is great for a date night or to hang out with friends. Cesar salad and ribeye were good. Mussels tasted fishy . Service was slow to start. Waiter was not attentive. He kept refilling our water but did not ask if we wanted more drinks when glasses were empty.
Lunch on Saturday afternoon.
Unimpressed, and d
Went on a Sunday afternoon. The service was incredibly slow. The menu doesn't offer a lot of variety and the food was just ok. It's hard to beat the view, but overall I was disappointed. For the price, you can do much better at other places in Long Beach.
The food was awful!!
great food & quick service. The dining area is beautiful and the view was very nice. Love it here
Brunch here, unfortunately, was terrible. It's apron $40 per person for your choice of a half cup of cottage cheese or a very bad shrimp cocktail and then a couple of eggs with either waffles, "steak" (was actually a 3 oz short rib), or some other small items. You also get coffee and a drink thrown in. All in all, the the deal is bad, but what's even worse is that the food isn't good at all and this isn't "brunch". This is waaaaaaay overpriced breakfast that you will regret except for the pretty view of the board walk. Just go for coffee, see the boardwalk and get some normal food somewhere else. Brixx & Barley brunch is 20 times better and cheaper.
This place is always hit or miss with the food and the service. However, the ambiance and the location is soooooo great, you just deal with it.
Nice looking place but service was slow given it was not a busy night.
The food was good.
I would go back to this restaurant. I liked the food, especially the caesar salad. The grilled chicken wrap was also tasty, but I would have rather it be warm chicken and not cold. I was not aware that it would be cold, otherwise I would have asked for it to be warm chicken. The service was very pleasant and the ambience is lovely.
The service was fair. Fingerling potatoes were boring.
The food was excellent. The wine choices were excellent. We were only one of two other parties in the room for an extended period of time and the service was horrible. This isn't like a "Karen" rant but there was little attention paid to us, no one came over to refill our water unless we manually tracked them down by leaving our table and walking to find them. The same held true for our bill. Also, they do not serve dessert. At all. None. It's just not available. Yes, we're griping with a "First World Problem" but it would have been nice if that were indicated anywhere in the booking, in the menu, or disclosed when we arrived. Very disappointing. Again, take your chances if this works for you. The food would have tipped it to 4-stars but the horrible service kept it a three.
The food was excellent; we had appetizers of mussels, popcorn shrimp and crab cakes, and all were terrific. The lobster rolls were filled with lobster meat, and our guests seem to enjoy the chicken milanes and scallops. We thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails also. And of course, there is no better view than the winter ocean. It was tasty and relaxing.
The only saving grace was a server named Brandon who took over after waiting 35 minutes for a glass of wine. Only 2 other couples were there at other tables. Place is gorgeous. Food is not great and they don’t serve dessert. Coffee cups are on the table when seated but no desserts for after lunch - just not what we expected for our 33rd anniversary.
Worst dining experience ever. If I could give less than one star, I would. Party of 3. Arrived on time for our 830pm reservation. We were seated immediately which was great. The restaurant wasn't busy (including our group, only 3 parties were seated). The hostess informed us there would be a delay on drink service because the bartender was replenishing his supply. Sounded weird but OK. 30 minutes later no drinks and no update. I inquired on status of drinks and was told they are coming. 15 mins after that the same hostess came, apologized (again) and informed the bar is closed. I thought this strange as a few couples were seated at the bar and were being served. Asked for a manager and was told no manager on duty to speak to. After 1h45, we got up and left, no food and no drinks ever served (oh yes, during this time we placed our dinner order which was never brought out). The whole experience was exhausting. Customer service was incredibly poor. With the exception of a Coke and Diet Coke (served without ice, completely flat and room temp) I cannot comment on the food because we never received our meals. The disconnect remains unclear: the bar was staffed and there were servers on duty. As we got up to leave, the hostess apologized yet again but offered no explanation on anything as she watched us exit. Ended the night with takeout from another establishment.
The food was great. The scenery was to die for. Everything beautiful
We appreciated them switching our reservation to an earlier time than the original 8 pm Only problem was the rib eye steak entree was not available that night. Service was very good
Thanksgiving dinner , awesome time delicious food
Not the same. Service slow. Waiter disappeared for way to long. We had 1 salad and 2 orders of tacos.. should not have taken 1 hours to bring to the table. Overall the service is below average. Used to be great many years ago.
Terrible food. We went for the breakfast buffet. Everything was cold. The eggs, waffles - bacon was hard as a rock. No mimosas or anything like that until after 11am.
It like one of those free buffets you get at The Holiday Inn.
Beautiful view by the water - but this was terrible.
