Went to Brunch here with a group of friends. We got seated in the back area, which was great for a big group of us. I had their bloody Mary and it was the first time that I have ever had bloody Mary with devil’s egg. It was absolute fantastic! I ended up having 2 by the end of brunch.... More

I'm probably being a little harsh for a place that has a cool vibe and the quality of the food is good. The service was excellent. They do change the menu daily so maybe it was an off day. The Pork belly tapas was bean over powering and therefore lost the real pork flavor. The polenta stuffed chili was good... More

Located in the Bankers Hill neighborhood in San Diego, not far from the center of downtown, is this little gem. Operating in a renovated garage-type building, this a great place for a good meal. The menu covers a selection of meat, chicken and fish--all of which looked appetizing. The burger, however, is the go-to dish. Nice selection of wines and... More

Have enjoyed both dinners eaten here.The food is fresh, inventive and beautifully presented and the cocktails are good. The service is good. It's a bit cramped, but that's not uncommon in popular, good restaurants. Worth a try, in my opinion, especially if you are staying close by.

A wonderful evening, in a stylish and sophisticated atmosphere. Excellent wine list, and our party of 7, enjoyed a wide selection from the imaginative menu. Without exception, every meal was a sensation. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived, and we were left wanting on occasion. However, would certainly visit again.

This is MY KIND OF PLACE! Classy and sophisticated vibe, great cocktails, awesome wine list, delicious food options, experienced staff, trendy and spacious decor. I'm not even going to say anything more, if you don't try Banker's Hill out, I feel sorry for you.

We were able to walk to this restaurant and it had been recommended by our host. This restaurant menu changes often because it is very "farm to table". We had an amazing dinner. I usually order a seafood dish but the skirt steak looked good to both of us - what a great choice! I don't know what they do... More
