Fruity drinks, romantic fire pits and a sparkling view of the city have helped make this Burbank place a go-to date spot for years.

I had to pick my girlfriend up here once. It was very busy and people looked to be having fun. She said she had a lot of fun but that it's too loud for me. She was surprised the food tasted so good for "bar" food. I used the bathroom and it was clean.

Set on top of the hill. A great restaurant to go to for a date or romantic time. The scenary is just beautiful and amazing. The food is also good. Make sure to make reservations as it does get full.

amazing view – The only reason I go to Castaway is the view, the food is okay. Actually its better then most places, but for the cost it really isn't worth it..

The view is amazing, especially at night when you can see part of Downtown lit up and most/all of Burbank. And if you're outside they have fire pits right on the deck near the edge of the 'cliff' its on over the golf course/Forrest park.

Some of the staff are nice, some look just plain miserable.

Relaxing at The Castaway – I have been at the Castaway few times. They valet is okay, just need to wait a little bit longer. However, the buffet is great at lunch. The food is fresh, I do really liked the steak. They have desert as well. To be honest the main reason I go to the Castaway is the view. They have great view that you can sit and relax. You can see the LA Downtown as well, the mountains and there are golfing course at the bottom of the restaurant.

Amazing view & food – I have been to tons of buffets and unlimited mimosas for Sunday Brunch but this restaurant by far is the best! Amazing view, you can sit outside or next to the window. The service is terrific, everyone is very attentive and then food quality is alot better than the ones Ive been too which remain nameless lol. I first went back in March for a brunch for my friends birthday and decided I would go back this past Sunday for my own birthday! I had a blast!! I hear they have Martini Mondays, might have to look into that! =)

A Par Above the Rest – Exquisite food,service, ambiance...and then some. For anyone interested in enjoying an exquisite dining experience, the Castaway is a MUST EXPERIENCE!!!

For starters, the service was EXCEPTIONAL! The restaurant Manager, Luis Martin Del Campo ensured that my sister's 30th Service Anniversary with AT&T Celebration would go off without a hitch...and he exceeded our expectations. And the food, what can I say...SENSATIONAL!!! MY COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEF AND TO OUR EXCELLENT HEAD SERVER, A.J.

Anyone interested in celebrating any occasion needs to consider this venue...Great Service, Food, View....A MUST for anyone wanting to experience A GREAT TIME!

Food Poisoning, mgr didn't call back – Terrible...3 out of the 5 people in our party eating Sunday brunch ate the Sushi and got terribly ill. My boyfriend called Castaway Tuesday to make a formal complaint and was told by the staff on duty they could not do anything about it. The only could refer him to the lead manager MARK and he would follow up on Wed. Wed came by no call,...Thurs came by, no call. So we tried again Thurs night and talked w/ Rushad. He assured me that MARK would call back on Friday. Currently waiting for MARK to call... Terrible terrible terrible...avoid!!!
