We used a Groupon deal and went on date night, otherwise the food is pricy. My dinner was the meat pie but the crust tasted like Crisco so it was too thick and too much of shortening. It was also too heavy. Desserts were great thought and the chocolate truffles that we got to take home were excellent. Will probably... More

We got a groupon for a brunch for two, and oh my god were we satisfied when we left the restaurant! Firstly, all their plates contain either chocolate, caramel or vanilla which, for a sweet tooth like myself, is absolute heaven. With the groupon we got a main dish with a side, a dessert and a drink each, plus truffles... More

I've long thought that Eclipse Chocolate is San Diego's finest chocolatier. Now I see that they are adept at meals and beverages as well. Tonight I dined there with my girlfriends on a Besties Night Out. I had the beer-battered fish with a pecan and cranberry spring lettuce salad with bleu cheese. Divine. We all loved our selections and each... More

I went here for Sunday brunch when visiting San Diego on vacation. I chose Eclipse because it came up in a search for gluten-free breakfast and it did not disappoint. Best coffee I've had in a long time. The service staff was knowledgeable about the menu and gluten-free options. More choices than I'm used to when eating out. I was... More

Whenever I think of amazing chocolate, I think of Eclipse Chocolate. The Hot Chocolates are my favorite - I substitute Rice Milk and add Caramel Sea Salt and OF COURSE the marshmallows. DELICIOUS! So is everything on the very decadent menu. To top it all off, we are able to pair local craft beers with the menu items and sit... More

We were in this neighborhood for a craft store, and the owner pointed us to Eclipse. A wonderful find. We had the brunch, my spouse the avocado eggs Benedict and myself quinoa with a mole sauce. Absolutely scrumptious. The restaurant is best known for chocolate but the brunches are equally well known it seems in the neighborhood. Super friendly atmosphere,... More

This was my first experience there primarily because of a Groupon coupon, but certainly not my last. I was intrigued by their menu which is why I bought the Groupon in the first place. It's very eclectic and unique in that they incorporate chocolate, caramel or vanilla into each dish and it's wonderful. My husband had a drinking chocolate infused... More

My aunt and I went here for dinner. She bought the groupon for a dinner for two and it came with a box of chocolates. Dude. Stay with me. We each got to pick, a drink(anything), one entree, one side and one dessert. Man oh man!! Let's just say we weren't hungry anymore after leaving. The food was amazing. Seriously... More

I have been here a couple times and the food does not disappoint. I think their pancakes are great. I love the chocolate chip pancakes as well as the bacon espresso pancakes. I have had their avocado eggs benedict which is OK, but I would not recommend. If you go here, get the pancakes. They have wine and beer license... More

Had dinner here recently with some friends who had been to brunch there before. They raved about it so we all decided to try it for an evening meal. What a treat! The food was delicious and well prepared and the service was perfect. The restaurant is not fancy, nor is it expensive, but the options for dining were refreshingly... More
