i have been here several times and prefer the seating upstairs for the views. It can be noisy and crowded but that is the nature of things! Definitely suggest a reservation requesting the upper level ocean view table. There is also a small patio space facing the street if you don't mind peeps oggling your plates etc. Nice bar area....

We have eaten here many times, with mixed reviews. We had dinner for 6 on the upstairs patio. It was VERY noisy, making simple conversation difficult. The food was average. The (expensive) Wagyu beef was tough and pretty tasteless, and very underdone. Burger was quite good, as was the service.

I love the bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer and the brussels sprouts (who knew brussels sprouts could be so delicious?!?). The one negative: their popovers at brunch used to come with home-made blueberry yummy sauce, and now it seems like it's just a scoop of jam. Still tasty, but not something that will bring me back for brunch every time I'm in... More

This is been consistently an excellent place to eat. We love sitting outside on a beautiful summer evening. It's only one block to the beach and has a great atmosphere, both relaxed and excellent service combined. A must when visiting Del Mar.

After having a really crappy dining experience last year, we haven't been back. We contacted the manager to tell her about our experience and how surprised we were about the poor food quality and horrible service. She apologized and said that they were overwhelmed by the number of diners that night. Excuses! There are so many great restaurants in the... More

The food and service were excellent. The prices were reasonable too, especially for being in the heart of Del Mar. The menu offered plenty of options and they had some interesting specials too.

The drinks were fabulous. The shrimp wrapped in bacon was good and the goat cheese flat bread was to die for. The dessert of the smores was a big surprise. This was the best meal I had last week in California.
