Creative with great flexibility to accomodate allergies

The service at the bar and by the wait staff were great and very understanding of several food allergies in the group. Food was fresh fare and well prepared. Breakfast smoothies and egg sandwich were excellent.

We had dinner one evening and a breakfast another day. Service was excellent and friendly. The food was delicious and the bottle of wine that they recommended was tremendous. While we had a lovely adult meal, our four year old coloured and had a great meal.

Mom and I split a burger. It was pretty tasty, but was also pretty expensive. I suppose the prices here may be comparable to those in the area. The service was good. Although I don't give it crazy high reviews, I would go again. But I'd make sure I had plenty of money first! Also, tasty fries! Might go check... More

We had a large dinner party here and were treated wonderfully by everyone we encountered. Not only was the service impeccable, the food was great as well. We all enjoyed the build your own cheese board, and the beet salad was delicious. The duck was melt in your mouth, as well as the swordfish, but the most favorite was the... More

Right next to Solamar Hotel. We had breakfast there every morning and dinner one night. Steel cut oatmeal with fruit, greek yogurt and berries, homemade muffins that were full of fruit and energy drinks with fruit and veggies.

The Oatmeal can be made hundreds of different ways! If we don't have it on the list, ask us, we may have it off menu! You could eat Oatmeal every day for the next year and never have it the same way twice! Enjoy! Cheers, Ben More

This was a great find. We purchased a Travelzoo voucher and had a very nice dinner while in San Diego. They welcomed the certificate and the service was exceptional. Our waiter, Jeff, was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant. The manager checked in on us to make sure we were satisfied. We felt very welcomed and were well taken care of.

My wife and I were in San Diego for a unseasonably warm weekend and decided to drop by one of the rooftop bars in the Gaslamp District. We chose J-Six because of a Zagat review. The review said it was a favorite for the 30+ crowd, and that appealed to us. We initially went for drinks, but we saw the... More

What is most interesting is the reviews of Jsix were good, but not nearly representative of the outstanding food. We've traveled many places and come from restaurant backgrounds (Dionne's French Cafe, Chicago); this was an excellent meal. The appetizers and salads (cheese board, kale salad, beet salad) were perfect. The beets (steamed) with a tangy/sweet vinagerette were stunning. The crispy... More
