We had the 4-course dinner with accompanying reserve wine selections. The wine was outstanding and well matched, definitely better than the food. The food was good but nothing to rave about. The atmosphere is romantic if you get the right table. This is in the middle of The Del resort so don't be... read more

This restaurant is very good, but also very pricey. For the same view, you can eat next door at the Sheerwood and save yourself a bundle.

We visit whenever in San Diego. It is a lovely restaurant with lots of outside seating on the porch so you get to view the ocean while staying out of the sun. They have an optional 4 course menu for $85. and more with wine pairings. You can also order al a carte. We had a vegan with us and... More

I hated this restaurant. We got stuck inside instead of outside on the pacific. It was hot in there. Dying for bisque and lobster risotto... Which aren't on menu anymore. Choice of banana soup and dried out lobster ravioli just didn't do trick. On a good note the waiters were great... Children's menu great.... I think if we were cool... More

We had a small birthday celebration and the service staff made it special beyond our expectations. The food was wonderful, two out of three dinners said their dish was the best of its kind they'd ever had. The ocean view from the covered porch area was lovely. The music was apropos and unobtrusive, we could actually have normal conversation with... More

My 50th wedding anniversary dinner quickly became the most unforgettable in all of 50 years. Our table was in the perfect location of not quite outside, still under cover. We could still see the ocean and the stars quite well. The service was impeccable and the food was perfectly prepared and served. The staff came to congratulate us at the... More
