This venue has been many places over the years, but this finally seems right. Just enough indoor and outdoor seating, a great bar, only one TV that doesn't overpower anything, diverse menu, non pretencious servers, fair wine list and even better cocktail concoctions, they take...More

If you're going to the La Jolla Playhouse, this is a great place to treat yourself to a great meal. Before it was open, we'd go to the nearby CPK or BJ's, so this is definitely a step up. The decor in the restaurant is...More
