Midweek lunch visits seemed good :-)

We visited Cody's twice for lunch during our stay in La Jolla. There was a short wait (10-15 mins) both times, but this was not an issue for us & there are cafe seats located outside on the pavement accordingly. Service was prompt & polite, & we did not wait too long from placing to receiving our... read more

My husband and i went for breakfast. We had heard it was the best place to eat. The server was very nice, but the food was below par. I ordered chicken and biscuits. There was hardly any chicken at all. The sauce was so full of pepper i didnt even eat it. Unfortunately my husbands meal was the same. We... More

Why is La Jolla always so hectic?? Crowds and now road construction really make one appreciate "laid back" AZ. But we don't have an ocean. Enough of the complaining. After waiting about 40 minutes for a table we were rewarded with seats outside. La Jolla Cove was in the distance and offered a nice vista. The onion rings were ordered... More

We were on a midweek get away with friends and on our first morning Cody's was our choice for breakfast. We had all been here before and enjoyed it so much! On this trip we pulled up and were so impressed with the fresh new updated look! We were greeted and shown to a patio table with a beautiful view.... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch as we were heading up the coast and not only were the servers friendly & efficient, but the food & drinks were great. And to top it all off, the patio was super dog friendly, with our pup getting her own water bowl and even her own menu! (scrambled eggs or grilled chicken)... More

The pluses - nice beach cottage ambiance, creative-sounding dishes, fresh ingredients. The minuses - cramped seating, mediocre flavors and service. Not a bad choice at this price point, but whether you feel it passable or excellent depends on what you really want out of a restaurant.

It was busy the day we went, so we put our name in with the hostess. She said a 20 min wait. We walked across the street to take in some ocean views and when we returned to the hostess she said, "Well, we called your name and you were not here". I smiled and said no problem, we will... More
