Our waitress and the food was great. However, when we arrived we asked if we could sit in a booth because we were cold. We were told that all booths were for bigger parties. The hostess was very unfriendly and made it clear we were putting her out. If the restaurant was full, I might just have figured she was overwhelmed by a crowd. However, there were very few diners in the cafe, and all the occupied booths had only two or three people. We asked again as we were escorted through the empty restaurant with a table set for 5 people and saw all the empty booths. The hostess rudely told us no again and that at least we could look out the window. Remember, we asked to sot somewhere warm and being seated in front of a huge window defeated that purpose. The restaurant only seated one or two other parties while we were there. I believe the hostess on duty should be trained to be polite and treat customers with respect. It was a horrible way for us to start our experience. We only travel to the Central Coast once per year and look forward to friendly service from the staff at The Madonna Inn. Very disappointed.

And all my trips to Pismo Beach I have never eaten here. Well I'm going to have to put an end to that, because this place was really good. I would have eaten there again on Wednesday night, but they had to close to refurb their kitchen. Anyway great food good prices, convenient. A great place for seafood.

We had a great dinner at the Ocean Grill. It is across the street from the ocean, not overlooking the ocean. The staff was very nice and the food was delicious. We had the Brussel Sprouts, the Butternut Squash Ravioli and the Seafood Stew. We found street parking, no parking lot. Our waitress was so cute. Great night

the female bartender was very friendly. She noticed my Armenian last name and told us how her mom was involved in creating a non profit organization to bring a very unique dog breed from Armenia called Gampr. You should check out these dogs. They can become massive. Back to the experience. Good was good! It was in a Marriott after all.
