Marinus - Bernardus Lodge
Marinus features California-Regional cuisine, created by celebrated chef Cal Stamenov, featuring local organic, seasonal produce as well as regional seafood and artisan farmed meats. Taking full advantage of the resort's pastoral location, the new design artfully combines modern comforts with the natural elegance of Carmel Valley wine country. Hand forged chandeliers and wall sconces from Normandy add drama while freshly-painted walls in soft shades and natural tones have created warmth. In addition to the signature fireplace, cozy custom chairs, linens and drapery have added texture and depth while bringing elements of the outdoors inside The four-star restaurant has been named Zagat's "Top Restaurant in Bay Area" and received Wine Spectator magazine's "Grand Award" since 2001 for its wine cellar. The cellar houses 1,850 different wines and a total of more than 25,000 premium bottles, including 10,000 bottles from the Bernardus Winery & Vineyard near the resort.
As a local PB Resident dining there for the first time, I walked away from the whole experience really unimpressed. I was greeted by the rudest Valet I have ever encountered, followed by a Bartender who obviously didn't enjoy his job. Unfortunately I was committed to dinner that evening and spent $400 (overpriced) at a place I didn't feel welcome from the minute I pulled up. Someone went out of their way to create a beautiful setting. Too bad the individual staffing the Restaurant made poor choices. Will not recommend to others and will not return.
