OK So first they took his name off that mountain... and now he finds out that the restaurant that was named in his honor is serving meals that start with an order of Cambas Alajillo followed with an entrée of Crispy Binagoogan and then a Bibingka Souffle for dessert. The food is good and it is a true family style... More

Thank you for this one of a kind, sophisticated Filipino restaurant. It is a breath of fresh air, and hands down one of the best foods I've tasted. They cater to you like family and talk with respect. My 4 children all loved the food and the selections. I wish we could have one like it in the Midwest. Would... More

One of our HS classmates was in town visiting with her husband from Florida. So 6 of us from the Bay Area met for lunch one Saturday. Everything we ordered were authentic Filipino dishes & proved not to be a disappointment at all. The desserts were nouveau but were pretty good too. It turned out to be a good add... More

I attended Fort Miley 3 separate times within the last couple of years. First, 2014 was a 50th Birthday celebration, Second and Third times were both Memorial Services for family and friends that passed away in 2015. The food was good and abundant, but it took awhile for the food to be replaced on the buffet tables. Service staff members... More

My friend brought me and my family here for dinner. The atmosphere is friendly, and the servers are friendlier. I've tried the sisig which reminds me so much of home. Great with rice!! For Dessert..Their Bibingka Souffle is a triumph!

This is a fine dining restaurant with good ambiance. I recommend you order the Bibingka soufle, suman with ube, limpuafitas, sisig, and the turon. We ate here in the afternoon so we mostly ordered the desserts,

This restaurant presents a vast cornucopia of Asian and Filipino dishes that is truly remarkable. One of the best Filipino buffet restaurants I've seen. A must-see.

Selection for the buffet was varied. Food was tasty and service was good. Staff was friendly and polite. This I think has the most reasonable and least expensive buffet I have experienced. Highly recommended and will definitely go back if I am in the area again. Be sure to come early for lunch, as the wait could be long during... More
