We stayed at the hotel so had breakfast and dinner. Staff and food were superb. Reasonable portions and reasonably priced. Dinner - we arrived with literally minutes to spare after along and tiring drive from Vegas. The staff were courteous and didn't rush us. Nice touch - we were unsure of the wine and chose blindly. Our server took the... More

We arrived on a weeknight and there weren't many people dining, which gave us pause. The menu is not extensive, so we began to think is this a sticks and twigs place? Huzzah! The charcuterie plate was fabulous! Generous portions of cheese and cured meats, followed by a delicious steak, accompanied by a nice red wine and great service. Don't... More

Was in a large group that had a nice dinner here. But when the check came, we were billed for many more bottles of wine than were actually ordered, an overcharge of hundreds of dollars. Asked to show us the empty bottles, they produced about half of the number on the bill and claimed the others had "already been recycled".... More

Hello, I'm sorry you had trouble with the pricing during your dinner. I did confirm with the manager on duty and all of the bottles were consumed. It can get a little pricy with a big group because some people consume more wine than others. Hopefully the food and service were a big hit for you! Cheers, Charlissa Dodge General... More

This restaurant attached to the Hotel Solamar serves good breakfast fare but is a bit expensive from my perspective. I visited here while staying at the hotel and went away with mixed conclusions. I had the Blueberry Oatmeal on one occasion and an Egg White Omelet on the other. The latter included spinach and avocado and was accompanied by a... More

Nice restaurant, clean, good food and friendly staff. We were staying in the hotel so came a number of times and were satisfied each time. No dishes "blew me away" but the food was very good in general. The staff were very friendly which made for a great experience.

I have been at Jsix over a business dinner. Very cool place. The food and the menu is amazing; articulated and with influences from different cuisines. The location is cool and the ambiance is classy modern. Recommended

No reservations. Went to rooftop bar/small menu. Busy night downtown for concert making for limited availability. Bar orders only for drinks and food. Service good, food bad, experience bad. For the prices, the food should be substantially better. Hummus was like paste and chicken sandwich was drier than a desert. Second time here with unfortunately similar results. Plan better and...

OK, I confess. We only visited Jsix for brunch because we had a coupon. We live in San Diego's back country but we haunt downtown and had seen this interesting place tucked into the corner of a very trendy hotel (same name) near Petco Park so when we had the chance to try it at a bargain we jumped.
