The Amaya is our go to place for special occasions. Graduation days, birthdays, etc. I love that I don't have to pay for valet parking. I also love the grandiose decor. It can be overwhelming which is why we frequent the place only for special occasions. The staff is always very friendly. They great the kids when its their birthday... More

Decent selection on the menu, top quality food. For those expecting a buffet, that might be available only on the brunch menu during the weekends.

This is a very nice restaurant on property. Yes it is pricey and the food is good. My wife and I dined on the patio for lunch. Just an FYI for regular folks like me, a sandwich costs $17 with fries. Bowl of soup was $9. But if you have deep pockets and price is no object...well, then price is... More

Had a wonderful dinner last night at Amaya. Great menu, food, service and atmosphere. We enjoyed a quiet walk around resort after dinner. Great place for a special occasion.

We were visiting San Diego and found Amaya on the list of most romantic restaurants, so we put on the GPS, and drove out of the downtown area to the beautiful gated resort. The restaurant was fabulous, we sat outside overlooking the courtyard. The service was formal but very friendly. We shared an amazing grilled pear salad, which they split... More

The food was certainly not the best in San Diego, but the service was actually quite impressive. They have a very nice outdoor terrace.

While staying at the resort it is difficult to give this restaurant an average review, although truly that is what it deserves on one level. Our first night as guests we decided to dine here out of convenience and were disappointed. The service was extremely slow although the restaurant did not seem overly busy. Our cocktail order took over 30... More
