“high price poor service and terrible food”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We were seated and within 5 minutes the waitress greeted us and told us the water would be here soon. My first impression was this is going to be good since last night we went to another restaurant for dinner, 20 minutes later after seating before any one greet us or served us water. We ordered simple meals, my was Cesar salad with chicken and a sandwich for my wife. I also asked for a cup of coffee. 15 minutes past by but no coffee; I saw our waitress and reminded her of my coffee. She said; "Oh yes, it is coming." I waited for another 10 minutes and saw my waitress served drinks at other table and ran back and forth to the kitchen but no coffee. I saw a gentleman escorted guests to the table so I asked him to please remind my waitress of my coffee. Within 5 minutes a hostess brought over a jug of coffee and a cup. She offered to pour me a cup but I saw that the inside of the cup was dirty. I pointed out to her and she was apologetic about it and got me a new one. Finally our food arrived, my salad was so bad I could not even taste the dressing on my salad. The portion was quite large. My wife's sandwich was OK. Our waitress has never came back to check on us about the food nor offered to refill the water or coffee. Needless to say, we will never come back to this restaurant again.

“Melt in your mouth Seabass”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

After having a beautiful afternoon at the outside lounge at hotel Del, we asked our super nice server Samantha where to go for seafood. She did not steer us wrong. This meal was the best any of our group had since arriving San Diego Fri. The three of us shared lump crabmeat (not crab cake) for an app. Then we told server Mary that we wanted to share arugula and pear salad so she told us she'd bring us the full lunch portion. It was perfectly dressed. The pears were gently sautéed and candied pecans always add to a salad like this. Then our entrées were the sea bass and the salmon. I'm not exaggerating this sea bass melts in ur mouth. It's served over creamy delicious polenta and the salmon was moist and flavorful. The salmon skin was very crisp and served up side which was a nice presentation. Had a great bottle of Malbec, only $40, how affordable for a very nice restaurant. The bread basket had perfectly toasted ciabatta bread, very soft inside. At the end of the meal I ordered espresso and Mary went over to the hotel Starbucks for me, I think there machine was down or something. My point is HOW NICE!!!! Too bad cab driver back to ferry had to b a crazy polish want to argue jerk!!! Do not try to make lite convo w/ this guy. Good ferry ride tho.

“Lovely lunch!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

A friend recommended going here. We had a lovely drink with lunch. They were having specials for their 125th anniversary. I picked their signature appetizer (baked goat cheese,pesto, & red sauce with bread). OMG! It was so good. Hubby & I ordered sandwiches. Could have shared, especially after the appetizer. Our waitress was kind and most attentive. It was a very pleasant experience.

“Not at all good!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We had just arrived and ordered a brisket sandwich and a salad. The salad was terrible and the stale popcorn that was on top really made a very poor first impression. The brisket was dry and covered with a BBQ sauce to hide the meat flavor. We complained and were not charged for the food but our first impression resulted in our looking for other establishments to spend our money on for food during the next four days. Arriving after a 15 day cruise we realized that the chefs serving some 2,000 people three times a day aboard the ship are far better than whoever seems to think they are professional chefs. You need to review and maybe retain your cooks.
