Needed a close stop, this place is excellent!

Picking up family from work we didn't want to hit traffic at 5 so found this place on TA. We made a 5:30 reservation on a Tuesday and had no problem for the 4 of us. We all decided on the 'Early Flight' - a choice of fish, top sirloin, prime rib or chicken along with soup or salad (and... read more

I first had dinner here in 2013 while in the area for business. I was back in town for a new customer and decided to stop back in. It was just as good as I remembered. I started with the beer cheese soup. Really flavorful and creamy! I got the chicken roulade and garlic mashed potatoes for my entree. The... More

Love the décor and overall atmosphere of this restaurant and the food is consistently very good at very moderate prices. On my last visit I was lucky to have Cheryl as my server who was very professional as well as funny and charming

We were there late so the baked potatoes were not good, but they brought us fresh garlic mashed that were great. We both had the 16oz bone-in Ribeye. SUPERB! They were seasoned and prepared just perfect. The Maitre D' Butter highlighted the flavor even more, terrific.

Parking lot is PACKED with patrons for the Friday night DJ/nightclub that is hosted in a side room so it can be noisy. We had great service from our waiter Thiago. Made reservations via OpenTable and got seated right away at a window table. Drinks came quickly and were reasonably priced....as is most of the wines....although the selection is a... More

Our party of four arrived right at 9 am on Sunday and were shown to a table right away. We selected a table near the windows because most of the restaurant is quite dark, even on a sunny morning - it's the decor but still noticeable. We were tempted to sit out on the sunny patio in the back, but... More

We had a small reunion with a group of co=workers for happy hour on a Tuesday evening. None of us had ever been their for their 'happy hour' and most had dined there for brunch but not in a long time. There were 8 of us. The waitress only came for a drink order one time. And the order she... More

Family in town and we chose this restaurant as we had good experiences there a few years ago and it was close to the hotel. A Friday night, but very few people in the dining area. Service was good and meal was adequate but not as good as expected. My niece ordered dessert - a lava cake. Usually lava cake... More

The restaurant wasn't too busy so we got a window table overlooking the evening lights of San Diego. The waiter was helpful and not pushy so we relaxed over a bottle of Pinot and two lobster tails each. Quite expensive but good. We went back the following night and got an elderly pushy waiter. The sirloin steak was tough and... More

We were there for the Sunday Brunch. The atmosphere, food and attentive staff made it very memorable. Our waiter Vince was sweet, prompt and engaging. The food was outstanding. Prime Rib, seafood all fresh and delicious.
