Cool decor, good food

This is a very cool place. The Moscow Mule has more of a gingery kick than others I've tried, so I highly recommend that. I loved the kale cesear salad, and it was huge so I shared w/ my husband. The veggie burger was good, but too heavy with the goat cheese and large bun, so I found I couldn't... read more

We have been here several times and our latest visit was not a disappointment. Great Moscow Mules and a delicious menu that is the right balance between comfort food and trendy stuff. Strongly recommend reservations for dinner. Can't wait to get back there!

I really like the atmosphere here, good music and friendly staff. It's a great place to grab a bite and drink a mule. The mules are really good! Great selection of whiskey too!

This was our 3rd or 4th time here. We love the food, had great service, but the music they played last night was so loud, depressing and slow, I nearly fell asleep at the table. It definitely ran us out of there a lot sooner than we were planning.

We have eaten there several times. The food is good, I love the veggie burger. And if you like whiskey, the benediction is to die for. But the music is too loud in that small space. Its very hard to carry on a conversation. I hope I'm not the only one that thinks that at a restaurant music should be... More

This is the kind of place you will return to again and again. Landing hungry at SAN from the Eastern time zone? Savor a late-night dinner. One of my favorites is a burger with Gruyere and carmelized onions along with a Kentucky Colonel, served in a frosty copper mug. Ingredients are locally sourced and inventive. Service is attentive without being... More

Hands down my favorite place in SD. It is high quality and well-sourced food. Great staff, great drinks, good prices and great location. If you are looking for a cool spot with a meal that is guaranteed to be great, this is your spot.

Two couples stopped here for dinner after 10 pm arrival at the airport. Delicious meal, superb cocktails (Moscow mule in a brass mug), excellent service. A wonderful welcome to San Diego

The bald male that walked up and greeting us and the people in front of us looked at us like we were annoying him. He was super nice to the people in front of us who sat in his station, but couldn't care less about us. It would have been nice to be greeted by a host or someone nice.... More

Our first time at this restaurant and we went just for the food so can't comment on the lounge experience but it does look like a good place to have a drink. It does have a lounge vibe as most everything is very dark--dark rock walls (interesting irregular texture), black vinyl seats, dark floor and almost no natural light so... More
