SPECTACULAR: Have the blue cheese souffle and then the short ribs. Can't wait to return. We've come once/year for almost a decade when we visit friends at Santa Luz.

One of the best restaurants in San Diego. Chef Schroeder has been nominated y the James Beard foundation multiple times. His food uses seasonal ingredients and is creative. We really enjoyed our time here, service was top-notch and the course tasting is a good bet to enjoy his food.

The presentations were spectacular and the flavors were as wonderful. My husband and I had the most amazing burrata, tomato and other amazing things in the salad with a most beautiful presentation. It was a marriage of so many elements that were wonderful together. The beet and grapefruit salad was also lovely. The short ribs were deliciously coated with a... More

This is a favorite for our family. Everything is always fresh and beautifully presented. New decor is darker but still pleasant & food not to be missed.

Went there for a business dinner. This restaurant is amongst the best....creative, artistic, delicious food, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. Simple and elegant. You cannot go wrong here...for friends, family, business or a romantic evening. Reservations are a must, especially in crowded "race" season in Del Mar. The Market is a local favorite, and one can see why !
