I love french cuisine so wherever I travel to, I always search out french restaurants. This restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel so we decided to eat there. We ordered couple of cocktails and they were good. I have the frog legs and my husband had the french onion soup. The frog legs were a little overcooked so... More

My mother came into town and I wanted to treat her to something nice. I have seen great reviews about this place and thought I should give it a try.. WRONG MOVE! I don't think their reviews are real people!! The place was empt! Our server was more interested in the busser's car than his two tables. It took us... More

Cool / fun 'off the beaten path' place with a lot of charm. At the triangle between Hillcrest, downtown and Little Italy. Great place for locals, but worth the 12 minute / $10 dollar taxi (with tip) trip from downtown if you want to escape the 5th avenue scene for something more personal. Regarding the menu: The frog legs, lobster... More

I had trouble deciding between a 3 and a 4 star. So probably a 3 1/2 star. We went here for a special dinner celebration. I read reviews before hand so was a bit worried. Overall a very enjoyable meal with good food. A few things that were mentioned in other reviews, but not enough to give this place a... More

We had a party of 8 and got seated immediately. The waiter was attentive but service from the bar was slow; it took about 15 minutes for a drink to arrive and we had to order glasses of wine twice before they came. The dinners were very good but 2 of the dinners arrived about 5 minutes after the other... More

We were a large pre-theatre group and could not get the flow going. The service was both accommodating and poorly paced. We needed to get the orders in, but the waiter disappeared at the wrong moment. The food was well-prepared and tasty, but the feeling was rushed and uncoordinated. Waiter split check, appetizers, wine orders... All done well. He even... More

We ordered 2 appetizers. When they came, one was wrong. It took a long time to get the correct one. We had to ask for bread. The main courses came before we had finished the appetizers, so we sent them back. When they returned, they were lukewarm, and one was inedible. We were told that they were very busy because... More

They have underground parking available. Read reviews to limited parking and we were there when San Diego Pride was going on. We found parking but took awhile. Upon arrival our waiter told us about parking. Anyways, food was fabulous & glad I invested in a Groupon purchase. If you are in the area please check this place out!

Hexagone was recommended to us by friends. Since it is in a busy area, the valet parking was appreciated when we ventured there for dinner. The menu was not the classical French expected, but a very good "Americanization" of French classics. We decided that the clientele were mostly retired individuals with excellent tastes and that the menu was geared to... More

Hexagone looks clean and tidy. The dining room has a nice atmosphere, comfortable sitting as there was only one other couple dining. The quality was just ok and the taste was good but nothing unusual, special or exciting. The quantity on each dish was unpleasantly moderate. As I asked, about the special on the chalk board outside the waiter argued... More
