Nothing But Love For Lei Lounge

Best happy hour in San Diego. I've never eaten here, but let me say, I've never had a bad drink at Lei Lounge. If not for a modicum of self control, I would just fiend over their coconut mojitos. This is not to mention the location/atmosphere/staff are, bar none, among the best. Keep this gem alive... read more

I come to San Diego often for work and I always make sure that I stop by Lei Lounge for a cocktail. My favorites are the basil pineapple martini, the aloe vera and the salted caramel. Trust me you won't be disappointed. This restaurant has a very hip outdoor dining area with a canopy ceiling that has video images projected... More

You enter this oasis of trendiness off Park Blvd in University Heights and feel you are smack in the middle of a restaurant/bar in West Hollywood. The place is beautifully decorated with Buddhas and vines and orchids and constantly changing graphics are on the ceiling and bar wall. Chill music plays in the background. There are also larger tables with... More

Lei Lounge is an outdoor restaurant. Cozy and beautifully done. The specialty drinks were really special! The small plates served were varied and all were delish, Being from the East Coast, we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The service was top-notch. I look forward to going back again.

Lei Lounge is looking great after her facelift. Patio area is very fun and tropical. Wait staff pitch perfect. The food is mostly appetizers and small plates. Definitely best to order a bunch and share with the table. We had five people and I think six or seven appetizers. No one left hungry! The food is terrific. I especially enjoy... More

Apparently this restaurant was remodeled. I don't know what it looked like before, but it's definitely a go to place now. Very cool outdoor but protected setting. They have a great happy hour until 8pm with lots of choices for unusual and tasty cocktails ($4.50 each). The food is best shared as every dish is interesting and you won't want... More

I had heard great things about this place so I was excited to go. I didn’t know that you really should make reservations first, so that was my mistake. There was only one table left at the front next to a very hot heat lamp. But when we got there the host (male) was not very pleasant at all or... More
