I was here for the brunch buffet and bottomless mimosas earlier today to start off my birthday weekend. I was super impressed. They offered a HUGE selection of both breakfast foods and lunch foods. They even had crab legs! Everything I had was delicious. I got THREE full plates of food. This should speak volumes. No, it doesn't just mean I'm a fat ass.

In regards to the mimosas, Castaway is one of those rare and blessed places that almost completely fills your glass with champagne and then adds just a splash of orange juice for color. Our waiter came by very often to refill our glasses.

The views of the city are beautiful and I'm sure it's even better at night.

Self-park if you can. Valet is $5, but if you drive a few hundred feet down the hill from the valet area, there's self-parking that's still close to the restaurant. Full Review

Based on the food and service during a private event I attended.

Overall: delicious food. Beautiful view of the city.

Location: they have valet or self parking. Parking lot is on the smaller spectrum.

Service: good. They kept refilling the drinks (non alcoholic) without having to ask. They took the plates right away as soon as they saw you were done. They were very attentive.

Looks like a pretty place to have a wedding ceremony / reception. Full Review
