Great food, unpretentious setting

I visited Jsix a sunday night for the last dinner or my vacation in the US. Jsix serves tasty, well presented dishes at reasonable prices in a relaxed setting. Many ingredients are organic and/or locally grown. The atmosphere is warm and not pretentious.

In a city with such a variety of cuisines, it's nice to find a place that still thinks comfort food is the best. Menu may not be very large, but the food will certainly impress you. Best part is the service. Staff is quick and really nice.

The service here ruined the experience a bit for us. One of the wines on the menu was a "Red Blend" and I asked the waitress what the blend was. Her reply: "Since it's a blend, it's a blend of two or more grapes " When I persisted at asking "Yes, but what kind of grapes?" she emphasized "red grapes.."... More

Me, wifey, and daughter came her for dinner back in April. Our server, think her name was Michelle, was excellent. She made great recommendations for both cocktails and food. We really loved the cheese plate. My wife's Kale Salad was amazing, I'm not even crazy about salads. I had a really good steak that was very tender and flavorful. I've... More

Upon coming to San Diego I did some walking around to look for a good place to have breakfast and I walked into a restaurant that was virtually empty, of course it was 7am and apparently the night life keeps people from rising early in San Diego :) However, I thought the menu looked interesting and I gave it a...

I needed to attend a Conference at the Solamar Hotel and stoped in for breakfast. In reviewing the menu there was a very nice selection. In speaking with my server, Natalie (Natalie@jsix.com), she was extremely helpful and helped me modify the dish to meet my particular taste and dietary requirements. She was fast, kind, courteous and very personable. The service... More

Stopped for dinner on a Sunday night with my wife during a conference and really enjoyed our meal here. They have a special on Sunday nights where you get two apps, two entrees, and a bottle of wine for $80, not bad for this area. We had the butterfish and chicken with risotto, both were very good.
