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.

This place is away from the main touristy parts of San Diego so is a great place to take out of town guests. Great atmosphere, tasty drinks, and delicious food.

What a little Gem on the outskirts of Downtown. Ambiance was awesome and was able to get a table quickly. This is a quirky small eatery with a bar. A little trendy and hipsterish. The food was awesome, though beware the menu is very very limited. But you should be able to find something for everyone. An adults only kinda... More

The host was not friendly upon entering. The food was mediocre and the ac was turned up so high it was freezing! The 60's decor was the best part of the place.
