“My favorite place to when in San Diego. Right next to water & great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

This place is chic but not fluffy and phony as some other "trendy" "must be seen" "celebrity" places in some big cities. However, you do feel like a movie star as you soak up the amazing views of the ocean and the beach scene while enjoying great food. BTW that ocean is so beautiful. It's hypnotizing. Did I mention that the food is awesome and tasty? I come here every time I travel to San Diego on business and I leave it for my last day before I return home so I can enjoy and rest after done with work. It adds years to my life. And now u know why. -:) -:)

“Amazing Brunch and View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Had brunch with wife, son and daughter in law last Saturday . Every thing was first class apart from the price which given quality of food, view, service and atmosphere was very reasonable.

The menu offers a wide range of interesting dishes which leaves one spoilt for choice.

A must go place for brunch at Pacific Beach.

“Didn't reach our expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Good location and nice atmosphere. The food, both starters and entrees tasted plain though.. The prices were quite high but the quality and taste of the food didn't match the price.

“Love the food, sketchy server”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

First off, let me say how amazing this place is. Beautiful location, amazing food, best bloody mary ever! I have come here multiple times and it's always a wonderful time. This past visit, our server was Anthony. We went on a Sunday for brunch. He was really great the entire time, came back at the perfect times etc.
However, when paying, we had three cards and then cash. We wrote everything down for which card was how much, and the rest in cash. Instead of bringing the change back, he just kept the cash. He then asked if we needed change and we said yes, and he said he had to go get it. Mind you, the amount of cash was over 20%. I just think that was highly unprofessional and shady. I have never seen a server just keep the tip without asking or letting us leave it for them. Needless to say, he didn't get the tip he deserved due to this behavior. Sorry!
