“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Awesome food. Awesome staff. And from many tables a great view of the ocean. The menu has a lot of comfort food, but it is excellently prepared with creative twists that make it special.

Hands down the best French toast I've ever had in my life!!!!! I went back there twice in a week during my visit to La Jolla.

“Best spot in LaJolla for brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

This restaurant has fantastic food, excellent ambiance, both inside and out. We usually stay above in the apartment when we visit our children in San Diego and we often have brunch at Cody's. It is a very special place. The service is excellent and the wait staff is very friendly and accommodating, as we always bring an entourage with us. Sometimes we eat outside and have a view of the park and water below or we sit inside and have a completely different experience. All in all it is a great place to eat.

“Really excellent spot in a perfect location...crowded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is one of my favorite spots in La Jolla. We come here for lunch on occasion and never have had a bad meal. Their menu choice is really good. There is typically a wait outside if you come on the weekends. But they have lawn chairs on the sidewalk lined up.

It's just 1 block up from the Park. The service here is always great and they are always friendly. We went last weekend and I got the fish and chips plate and it was perfectly cooked. My wife got a salad with fresh shrimp in it and she said her dish was delicious as well. They have kids meals here and our kids got a cheese quesadilla and a pizza.

Definitely a great spot to visit with the family. They have some outdoor seats in the patio as well.

“Outstanding Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Fantastic food, wonderful ambiance and friendly service. The portions are hearty and the food is delicious. Absolutely worth the wait. Cute outdoor seating and decor was a nice bonus. Our party of five tried 6 different things and they were all out of this world. Try the crab cakes benedict and the lobter roll! It they offered bloody marys it would be perfect!
