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!"

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!

Excellent! The Castaway makes a great "getaway" from the rustle n bustle of the city. The service was good so was the food. The most memorable aspect of course was the spectacular views. nearly 360 degrees of jaw dropping scenery. there's a lot to explore on this property many kodak moments waiting to happen. Parking was easy (there was valet). It's beautiful in either day or night time. We had a good sized party and it was easy for them to accommodate, the menu has great selection and everything that touched the table looked delicious!

We normally love coming up to the Castaway, ordering drinks and watching the sunset. We headed up on Saturday, May 24. Even though there were plenty of places available out on the patio, they told us we needed to give our name and wait. And wait we did. About 20 minutes. And we were finally taken outside. Still lots of tables open. We asked to be seated at the fire pit area. ALL were open as it was still light out. We waited, and waited...no service. We had to ask the bus boy from the table nearby to please send the waitress over. We saw him go over to her, and still she didn't come. We waited some more. No drinks, no service. Nothing. We finally decided to get up and leave. Went to JAX in Glendale and had great drinks and live music. But it was really disappointing being invisible.

I had my wedding at the castaway about a month ago ! I absolutely loved it and everything was awesome. There was a few things wrong but i didnt let it ruin my big day. if i were a bridzilla then maybe this would be a very different review. I had my wedding at 6:00 and unfortunately it was pitch black since the gazebo light was not working and did not turn on. The only way the guest would be able to see us as when our photographer would snap a picture with the flash. A little advise would be to double check the light is working before the bid day. Also a HUGE help would be to get the right event planner to help you out. If you get the wrong one then you will find yourself in a very frustrating spot. I was even having trouble 3 days before my wedding to pay off the full venue since my event planner was not exactly that helpful and anytime we had to contact him we had to call him for days before he would return the call or email. I had the BEST event planner for the first few months of my planning and she was on top of everything ! then i got stuck with someone else when she got a better job. Just to my luck he was very hard to work with. But on a brighter note i had the BEST servers/ bar tender they alwaya made sure we were ok and let us know everything that was going on. WE loved them so much we gave them a good tip ;). My wedding was beautiful and awesome only because i had at least some good people at the Castaway took great care of us. I will defiantly plan another event their I will just be sure to get a better event planner.

Our experience at this restaurant was exceedingly poor. We went today to this restaurant for lunch. The food was mediocre, the ribs and fries served were cold. The fish and chips were not that good either, the fries were cold and the fish was hot but extremely greasy and could have used some draining prior to serving. The food was nothing to brag about specially if you consider that most entrees on the menu were over the $15.00 range. Additionally, the food took a long time to arrive. The waiter was very pleasant and attentive but the attentiveness of the waitress couldn't compensate for the poor quality food that was served at an exorbitant price. Avoid at all costs.
