We decided to try something new in La Jolla and heard this French Restaurant had only been open about two weeks. Even though we had our six and three-year-old grand-daughters with us, we gave it a try. The atmosphere was classy, yet casual, the waiters/waitresses...More

Amaya is by far the most elegant restaurant in La Jolla, maybe in San Diego. The service was attentive, the food well prepared and the wine list extensive.

This is an absolutely wonderful looking restaurant inside and out which at first glance looks unaffordable but really provides an elegant atmosphere that is a lot more affordable that you would think. The service matches the décor, it is five star all the way. The...More

I made a reservation at Amaya for the final lunch of restaurant week just to try something different. Amaya is fairly new, so I was expecting to be fairly well-fed and entertained by the novelty, if nothing else, but I had no idea that is...More
