We have lunch here whenever we visit the San Diego area and are walking around La Jolla. It's a convenient location with indoor and outdoor seating. Everything is good. I was pleasantly surprised with the crab cake lunch and greens I ordered recently. Not huge crab cakes, but with lump crab meat versus shredded, unremarkable crab.

Two for breakfast with a beautiful view of the cove. Started with a really good cup of coffee and an organic tea, followed by eggs Benedict and the omelet with a side of grits - freshly made and so tasty. The staff was friendly and on top of things. So recommended!!

Came here after a long day of walking the ocean shore. Was met by friendly staff, seated quickly. Food came fast, had the fish and chips (great) and wife had the ceviche and calamari(she loved it as well). Excellent meal, friendly place. What's else is to be said.

A cold and foggy day but still comfortable at an outside table. Owners do not have heaters but offer blankets if it is cold... Had perfect fish and chips that were very lightly battered and fried perfectly, crisp and just done with local cod. Cannot remember better. Great sweet onion rings with a chili dip and a great selection of... More

Amazing breakfast experience at Cody's. The food was awesome, very healthy and tasty. The service was great and the staffs are just incredible. Very courteous and polite. And the outside sitting is just spectacular. We get to enjoy the awesome food and weather. Perfect place to dine in. Highly recommended. My favorite spot for good food in La Jolla.

Read reviews and found this place was close to the area we wanted to explore. Lyft brought us there and though the place is small, there was no wait for a table outside for brunch. My husband had the crab benedict and I had fish tacos. Food was very fresh, nicely presented. The menu had many interesting choices so it... More

We, a party of 3, were there on President's day. I don't believe this restaurant takes reservation. We were recommended about this place and decided to try. When we arrived, we were told the wait is about 90 mins. We were also told the view is great from the restaurant. It is great but didn't seem fantastic. In La Jolla,... More

We have been here multiple times with our golden retriever and their staff have all been so friendly and attentive to us and especially to our dog. Their food is unique and delicious. They also have a dog menu. Beautiful San Diego view of La Jolla. Highly recommended!

The service here is quick and courteous. This space is small but the tastes are very large. We tried to appetizers and 2 mains. Would immediately recommend to any age or palate.
