We were spoiled. We had the most incredible food (Filet, South African Lobster tails) and the best waiter we've ever had. Worth every penny!

We have been several times in the past year. Service is always attentive. Right balance of quiet and lively atmosphere. Downstairs would be great for a business meeting or quiet meal while the bar upstairs and the deck outside has a fabulous view and is always crowded. Food is consistently delicious and well prepared. Menu has plenty of variety. Great... More

Food, service and ambience were all excellent. I had dinner here three times while in San Diego for business and pleasure. Once with clients and twice with my wife. Seafood and steaks are superb. Live jazz music by the bar area (not too loud) was very enjoyable. Must try the crab cake, scallops, and wagyu rib-eye. All were fantastic. Go... More

Three of us went to dinner - sat in the lounge area since dining room was full. Such a good menu- tough to make a decision! The service was excellent. Must try lobster tacos- and the Sole and scallop entrees were out of this world. Highly recommend!

Recently had dinner here and the food was delicious. We preferred the downstairs by a window for the view; the upstairs is less attractive. Abbey was a delightful server and the hostess was very gracious in accommodating our request.

We went there for dinner on the basis of a personal recommendation. The food was good but well over-priced, we believe they're trading on their reputation rather than on delivery of value for customers. A balance needs to be sought of good food and sensible prices - get to it and it'll improve no end.

Great place for lunch outside with a wonderful view of La Jolla Cove and the coastline. Food was great, especially my wife's Tuna Salad Nicoise. Tuna was just perfect! Waiter John was fantastic, very attentive and informative.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch and were very happy with our experience. I couldn't have been happier with the food, service and drinks, yes drinks with lunch, I was on vacation :-) It took me a while to decide on what to order as the menu has quite a choice of options. I wasn't wanting anything too... More

I had tuna sashimi for starters and lobster tails for main. Both delicious. Californian white wine was also excellent. Cannot comment on the prices as I have been invited.
