“BDay Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great location, Great service, and Excellent food. I had the Ravioli (Lobster Ravioli) Yummy! Other guest had the Colorado Lamb Chop, he enjoyed very much. The gnocchi appetizer/side was very good. Definitely order again. It was a little warm on the patio, but great view, however the view gets disrupted by the city buses. Really bad spot for a bus stop. Might want to get the city to move the stop.

From the salad to the salmon to the flan, we have never had better food! Add in outstanding service, views and ambiance and there is nothing more to wish for!

“Fabulous Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

The number one choice for good dining if you want a location looking out to the sunset and Pacific Ocean. Many pasta choices along with fresh fish, beef and poultry. Our Martinis were right on. I had the mixed grill brochettes and they were excellent and my husband ate the diver scallop and shrimp with black and white fettuccini which he thought was good. Nice desserts. Parking is a problem...valet or nothing.

“Extraordinary food, friendly attentive service, we sat outside the weather was beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

I have brought my friends and family here for the past five years. I have read the reviews and only agree with one common complaint, the waiters think a lot of themselves. The food I have been served here is always been exceptional. I have a great dinner or lunch, it might seem pricey but they haven't missed yet and that's worth it.

“Great Food, Service and Ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is a beautiful, well run restaurant that seems to do everything right. We went on a weeknight with another couple and the restaurant was very busy. If you reserve far in advance, you have a chance to snag an outdoor table with a beautiful view of the ocean and possible the sunset in the evening. We were lucky to have a clear night. The portions were generous, but be prepared to be pay top dollar for your meal. The plates are large and really attractive and they meals were beautifully prepared and presented. All four of us had something different, 3 had seafood and all were extremely satisfied. The wait staff did their jobs well, but the path between the outdoor tables is tight, so you might get jostled a bit. The only parking is by valet in a very small lot, but it was no problem. All in all this is one of the best restaurants in the San Diego area.
