First off the restaurant is right on 5th Ave. in the Gaslamp Quarter. That area is the place to be with all kinds of places with live music for after dinner fun. The first time I went because the Concierge from the Grand Hyatt recommended it. The design is cool because it used to be part of an old theater... More

Nice decor and ok good. Service was just ok. Too salty and too expensive for the service we received. I wouldn't go again which is always tells you how good a place is.

So I had to travel 5,500 miles to have the most perfect meal of my life! Ok, the travelling part was due to work, but out of the many, many restaurants in San Diego's Gaslamp District, my party and I were spoilt for choice. So what do you do in a situation like this? Of course, find the one that... More

This place was recommended by the hotel staff. Upon arrival during the dinner hour, I was one of 4 people having dinner. The meal was fair, not great by any means. I had filet mignon. No special seasoning, nothing extra. The bernaise sauce was McCormick out of the package; mix with water...stir. I make it all the time at home.... More

We arrived on time but our table was not ready and we were directed to the bar. We were not seated until 9:00. The hostess kept coming by to say that "just a few more minutes until a... More

We sat outside and Giovanni was our main waiter. Alex was his assistant. their service was unsurpassable. We started off with oysters on the half shell. The couple with us had buffalo steak and elk chops. I had the wild boar sausage and my wife - Ahi Tuna. We all shared! No one uttered a sound of disappointment. I challenge... More
