Happy Fall, fans! Di Riseborough said it best, "one small positive thought 'leaves' the mind open for the inviting of others. Don't 'fall' for the negativity of others. It will only drive you NUTS!"

I've been here several times for the champagne brunch because let's gave it, when you have bottomless champagne and great views all else is forgiven. But in all honesty, the food is mediocre yet plentiful and the staff is courteous but if you ever sit outside by the area where they congregate you can't help but over hear all their complaining about customers. Let's face it, customers are sometimes rude or demanding and I can understand why they would be frustrated at times but I was think they would at least do it in the back somewhere where other customers can't hear it. At least I would think... Overall it's beautiful and worth going for the views and drinks if nothing else.

Went here for brunch today. It was mediocre. The wait staff was excellent, Jonas the sweet Swedish guy went out of his way for us. Sadly the food was sub par. The selection wasn't as vast as I had heard. Also the warmers were consistently empty. I found that I had to wait a lot for things. The chocolate cake with raspberry sauce paired well with my Hennessy but of course my liquor was not included in the buffet rate. Hahahahaha Anyway we won't be back. The view was ok. It didn't compare to Terranea.

Much we have heard about this place so we decided to have a B-Day celebration on May 11th, which apart from the valet parking people and the Burbank view, everything else turned into a growing disaster from the "welcoming hostess" to the poorly table set up (which happened to be a Costco patio table with a cloth) and the ridiculously slow service (not to mention there were only about 12 tables total in the restaurant) 29 minutes to get a glass of water =(( ... by then it was too late to run somewhere else ...anyway you bet we were invited to not come back and to NOT recommend the place to anyone in our Xmas listing ... hope your experience turns better than ours so ... GOOD LUCK.

The view from the top is beautiful and romantic. If you want to impress your date or special someone... add this place to your list! What is also very nice ... is that you can sit in one of those outdoor fire pits to chat as you view the city landscape. I enjoyed it!

Ironically the Castaway's name says it all; It's seen better days. The establishment has an overall dingy feeling from the dirty carpet to the dark wood paneling. We went for the brunch and spent 100 dollars for two without alcohol. The food was lack luster, not fresh, and showcased little culinary skill. Melon was trimmed in chunks with pieces of rind on them, waffles were undercooked and gummy, the meats were salt less and tough, seafood was placed above the Ice and served on hot plates. The pagentry of the restaurant can be only found in the view. We left hungry which is shameful with all that ill-prepared food going to waste.

Don't mind overpaying for good food but this was average to below at best. $432 for 9 of us, 3 of which were kids. Great atmosphere but $34 for a clam plate, $12 for a drink? Will never go back, got us once but poorly run operation to try and screw people.

Great view--Parking lot was blocked by inept valet parking and it took an hour to get in the lot.--Food was average and buffet was overpriced. Great service

We went there for the July 4 firework dinner. Nice views of the valley, but the food was very ordinary and overpriced, and the service so-so.
