Pacific's Edge corkage?

dockhl Mar 7, 2012 10:12 PM

We'll be staying at the Highland's Inn in a few weeks and I have reservations at Pacific's Edge. It is an anniversary for us and I'd love to bring a special bottle of wine for us to enjoy (a 2007 Saxum Rocket Block ) that they do not offer. Any idea what their corkage might be?

Thanks !

    We have brought in our own wine (not on their list), but I can't remember the corkage. A few hits on a Google search said it is $35. Maybe a quick call would make you more comfortable.

      For what it's worth on Pacific Edge..we stayed several years ago at the Hyatt Highlands and dined at Pacific's Edge and I thought it was one of the most overrated, exorbitant meh restaurants we've been to in a long time.
      I would much rather see you have drinks and app's upstairs and save your anniversary dinner for someplace worthy..
      Passion Fish in Pacific Grove is fantastic and the wine list is almost at cost and their half bottle list is fab.
      Sierra Mar at Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur for lunch or dinner is another fave.
      Roy's at sunset to watch the bagpipe guy with drinks on the green is lovely on 17 mile drive and if you spend over $25, you get the $10 entrance validated.

      Maybe it's gotten better in the last couple of years...hope so!

      Happy Anniversary..

        Thanks for your input !

        I've eaten at all of the restaurants mentioned and agree that they are wonderful (and that Passionfish's wine list is amazing!) BUT I really don't want to drive back to Highland's Inn after a bottle of wine ! So, chances are good that we WILL be having dinner there one night :) I am mostly looking forward to a lovely dinner, good wine and then..........back to the room for dessert ! LOL !

        (Thanks for your good wishes...........)

            I thought it was $40 last time we were there. :)

              Accckkk.......$40 is really high, altho the wine list prices are astronomical. Am I muddle-headed in wanting to do this? (Eat there.....)

                If you want to stay on property, you might consider the bar/lounge menu. You would still have the view and ambiance, yet be close to "home".
                Did you get a chance to verify the corkage?

                  Like I stated in a previous posts that I would bag the dinner and have drinks and app's in the upstairs lounge and do the wine in your room on the balcony and stop and get some olives, cheese and crackers/baquette...
