Best View 2009: Vista Grill
Published Aug 3, 2010 -
What stunning vistas of the town, bay and surrounding mountains this sleekly sophisticated mountainside venue is privy to, jutting terraces at different levels making you feel the views are yours alone. Despite the exceptionally romantic mood created by the spectacular setting, intimate bar and lounge areas, gold onyx-infused lighting, gorgeous flower arrangements, easy-listening New York lounge music and more, the exquisitely prepared and presented food is really what this refined place is all about. Beef carpaccio with Parmesan shavings and balsamic vinaigrette and coconut shrimp with honey mustard are two appetizing possibilities – a delicious complimentary tidbit, which changes daily, appearing with your drinks. Steak lovers will be ecstatic with the quality and options offered, and the accompanying grilled vegetables are exceptional, as is the Caesar salad. Desserts are as out-of-this-world as you’ll ever find, and the service simply couldn’t be better, staff going the extra mile to ensure you leave happy.
