We were walking around trying to find a nice bar where we could talk. It was a very busy night in Gaslamp, so many of the eateries were crowded. We walked by Jsix and asked if there were any seats at the bar - the hostess said "no, but you can go to the rooftop bar". She said it like... More

Located on the first floor of a Kimpton (boutique) hotel in the Gas Lamp district, design is the highlight of this bar/casual restaurant. Don’t be fooled by that, the dinner cuisine and prices are not casual. We enjoyed the vibrant ambience but the noise was excessive – and the restaurant was not full. Must be deafening on a busy night.... More

The food was acceptable, but not superb. This restaurant was chosen for its focus on local food. We had an tempura avocado (with quinoa) which was delicious. The rabbit was pretty much what Grandma might serve as stew. That is not a bad thing, but Grandma's is cheaper and it was not what we expected. My fish was fine. The... More

My husband and I ate dinner on the rooftop patio on a Wednesday night. Half off wine bottles was the highlight. I ordered the kale salad - $14 for one of the smallest salads I've ever seen. Disappointing as it was nothing special. My husband had the burger and was not impressed. "kind of bad" was his opinion. The patio... More

The last time we stayed at the Solamar (about 4 years ago), the best meal we had was in Jsix. Jsix didn't disappoint this time either. I like that the menu is fairly short. I find that some restaurants give so many choices that it takes forever to decide! Jsix's menu choices are varied and all are quite healthy. The... More

Thanks for the review! We keep healthy offerings at the heart of our philosophy- with so much great organic produce right here in town how can we not!? We do have a fab zinfandel blend from Paso Robles (Tobin James, known for big, jammy Zins) by the glass. We will look at adding some more superb California wines! See you... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this remodel. The restaurant looks so good. Loved how everything looked. The restaurant before was cavernous and old. Now it's very clean and all the decor goes together. The bar is huge and I agree with another poster that, depending on the crowd, can be unbearably loud. Perhaps the restaurant can do something to prevent... More

We had two meals there, a breakfast and a dinner. Both were good. Presentations were somewhat different for us, but we are open to new ideas and enjoyed the items we had. Portions were generous and prices a bit higher than we would like to see, but more big cities are like that. Many other places in area, so we... More

The menu seemed a bit overpriced for what you got and the food all seemed to be the same brown color, but it tasted fine. The beer and wine selections were very good and we each received a glass of cava when we were seated at our table. The restaurant is attached to a hotel, which is where one needs... More

I was not sure what to expect prior to arrival. We were greeted with a glass of wine which was a very thoughtful and tasty gesture. The bar is long with plenty of seating and an eclectic mix of well executed cocktails. The wine and beer list is extensive and quite interesting. The food is locally sourced and nicely presented....

Nice selection of beers. Food is fresh and eclectic a nice feature is that you can get large or small size portions. Good location near Petco Field and in the Gaslamp district.
