Good food but less organic than I had expected

The food (a perfectly made steak) and Wine (red Cabernet from Napa valley) we chosed was good although not as organic as I had hoped. The Service was ok. The arcitecture is outstanding..

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

The drinks are strong, and great, the food selection is limited but delicious. It was an odd location, and parking is somewhat limited. The hostess was very helpful and notified me when a table of my choosing was available. Thank you Kara! The ambiance is great, not too bright, and not too loud. Great place to bring a date. I...

This is the first place I take guests to give them a taste of "San Diego." I love the design of this place. The food (especially the burger and octopus) is fantastic. Drinks are the best... all of them.

We were looking for a restaurant that stayed open late and not too far from where we were staying. This restaurant popped up. Loved the setting and ambience. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Service was prompt. Being pescaterian, I got the fish of the day which was sheephead (very good!) with green beans and pesto sauce. Delicious. We...

Friends took me to Starlite Lounge last evening - a place I had passed several times on previous trips to San Diego but never stopped in. Its rather nondescript exterior next to the freeway does not hint at the warm ambiance and great food inside. The happy hour specials include $15.00 off bottle so wine - something I've never seen...

Tried the chicken jidori, the grilled octopus and the sausage plate. The jidori chicken was perfectly cooked with a crispy baked exterior and amazing flavor. The sausage plate was equally good with some great house sausage. If in the mood for a drink, they make a perfect mule.
