“Enthusiasm on the Menu and from our Server”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We wandered into this restaurant quite by accident and was fortunate to snag a table as it was packed. It did not take long to find out why. The food was inventive, delicious and artfully prepared. We had skate and Atlantic Black Cod. Both delicious entrees. Our server was very knowledgeable and we were amused with his enthusiasm over the dishes. We sat outside by a huge olive tree, quite delightful. Probably the only down side was the fairly loud techno music playing in the background. With the over 40 crowd this place craws, I would have expected mellow jazz.

“Best la jolla ladies who lunch experience ! Ouh la la ! A must!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Ouh la la i love this restaurant. I went there for lunch with my girlfriends, we had the ahi burger and the wild mushrooms pizza. The fries were just overcooked. Lunch price is fair. The indoor patio is so charming, if you close your eyes you feel like having lunch on some european village plaza. Welcome to la jolla herringbone we love you!

“Great Atmosphere, Yummy Hand Crafted Drinks & Amazing Food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Love love the lounge experience on Friday night, just as much as Dinner on Tuesdays!
From the stylish décor which incorporates earth tones, trees and an open rooftop to the meal and drink preparation, everything is perfectly presented in this cool upscale yet casual place off the streets in La Jolla Village.

Drinks: To experience the full flavor and deliciousness of the ingrediants in each drink a sent stick is presented for you to smell prior to sipping. The Petter Rabit is awesome - it comes with tasty pickled carrots and has a slight kick with a subtle lemon flavor. The Tokyo Love Hotel is my favorite- sweet tea flavored Vodka with lemon. Vodka Something is another must- fresh berries it almost like water with fresh fruit.

Dinner: Mouth water food perfectly prepared! The ShortRibs melted right in your mouth. The chicken was moist and cooked to perfection!
