JSix is attached to the Solamar Hotel. It has very cool decor- it has been remodeled since our last stay 2 years ago. It has the feel of a very chic urban industrial loft with exposed brick and muted colors. The staff is very enthusiastic and friendly! We only had breakfast there- oatmeal with blueberries, honey and flax. Although it... More

Built my meal around dessert...maple ginger cake---6 big pieces of gingerbread and 3 scoops of pumpkin gelato for $8. It was a close to heaven as I've tasted in a long while! Scallops were cooked to perfection AND the chef consented to substituting horseradish mashed potatoes for the standard gnocchi accompaniment. Ditto what I said above about the taste. Liked... More

Natalie shines and makes your brunch twice as delicious! Tr the chilequiles and top it off with bottomless mimosas or bloody marys. Yummy!

This place is attached to the Solemar hotel. For breakfast we did the grits and eggs along with chilaquiles. Grits and eggs were good, chilaquiles were great. Service suffered due to one server being tasked with hosting, serving and tending bar for all patrons. Server managed to make it around to all tables and bar, while keeping a positive attitude....

Our server wasn't exactly up to speed but they made up for it with the food quality and a few nice gestures at the end. The desserts are worth the wait and the rest of the food was reasonably good quality as well.

Let me start by saying that this was the Friday before Christmas so maybe that is why the service was poor and the place was dead except for a huge office Christmas party group. We sat at the bar (and we were the only ones in the whole place except for that large party). The bartender had NO ONE to... More

great, slightly funky twist on CA local favorites, as well as excellent bar (and bartender). Dinner menu varied and excellent. Breakfast is great as well.

We were staying in the Solamar hotel and didn't want to go too far to eat. We didn't regret it. Had an excellent meal and the staff were friendly and courteous. Would recommend it.

Haven't had a fried baloney sandwich in about 20 years. Tasty sandwich, they use high quality thick baloney. The sandwich works. The service was quick and good.

The breakfast dishes are, for the most part, standard at this restaurant, but the Chilaquiles was truly unique and quite good! I had that for a business breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant wasn't crowded, but when it became busier, noise was a slight issue. Otherwise, a great choice!
