We had a fabulous meal last night. The salad was so interesting, puffed cheese pastry to die for, the squash ravioli the best I have ever had. Wait staff were perfect!!!

We had a great experience here. The service was prompt, helpful, and very enthusiastic. The food was all very good and we were very pleased. We had an appetizer, entrees, dessert, all of which were served timely as the waiter was truly excellent. I will definitely eat here again when I visit San Diego again!

The food tasted great and the atmosphere was really nice! Loved being able to enjoy the outdoors at the same time. But food was kind of pricey and the menu was very limited.

Wonderful food and the atmosphere was superb for a friendly large business dinner with about 14 people. Lots of elbow room at the table. Food quality great, including seafood and other selections.

The menu will keep changing as it is a farm to table restaurant. We dined there with our teenage boys. We shared many starters, sides, salads, a charcuterie board etc. A delicious fun meal. The server was fantastic, she gave us many great suggestions.

We were staying at the Omni over Thanksgiving and came across this cool restaurant. We passed on the Broken Yolk to find a better option for breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised to find this place open in Thanksgiving day. The food was delicious. Everything organic and farm to table is the way we prefer to eat. I ordered an omelette... More

While waiting for other business associates to arrive for dinner the bar is a great waiting and meeting place for conversation. It was a little hard to get the bartenders attention as more arrived though. We were offered an abbreviated menu due to the size of our group but there was something as the main entree for each diner. The... More
