    This restaurant has one of the best ocean views in Santa Cruz combined with a nice ambiance and excellent food. It is quite pricey, though. Dinner for two, with just two entrees, no drinks, no apps and no dessert cost $100, not including tip.

    What a delightful place! My husband and I went there to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival, there was a vase of roses near our table that were so beautiful to add to the ambience. Our server was so friendly and wished us a happy anniversary. She was incredibly personable and attentive! The restaurant is so lovely with such a beautiful view, it has such a warm, relaxing feeling! The food was delicious! At the end, our server even offered to buy us a dessert to celebrate our anniversary. What an absolutely lovely experience!

    La Posta is always my first choice of a restaurant in Santa Cruz. The food, farm to table, is extraordinarily fresh, innovatively prepared, and utterly delicious. To be honest, I don't spend money on much besides eating out at La Posta! I'm sometimes in here two to three times a week, and it's always phenomenal. This time, my friend and I shared a lovely calamari antipasto. We could taste the subtle grilled preparation, the simple presentation. Then, we shared the pasta with a fresh tomato cream sauce and fresh tomatoes and greens. Yum. Then the sea bass. Delectable, perfectly cooked, plenty of food to share. And of course we couldn't resist the unbelievable chocolate dessert. Sharing allows us to try more dishes and keep the price down, but my friend still had wine, and we were quite full. The service, as always, is warm and attentive and delightful. I truly can never say enough about how good this restaurant really is. If you appreciate subtlety and innovation, but never fussiness, you will love this, my favorite restaurant.

    We had a very enjoyable dinner at the Water St Grill. Our server was so friendly and attentive. My ribeye was perfect and my wife's pasta was delicious. The Caesar salad and sides were just OK. Overall a great experience.
