We heard about this new restaurant from our hotel desk. It was one of the best meals we had in La Jolla. Great food,service and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

This place was recommended to us by our waiter at George's as a good place for Happy Hour....so off we went! The outside was misleading and we also walked right by....but it is charming. Loved the decor....trees, lobster crates full of blowfish (yes, real, but they ASSURED me that they were picked up dead already)....variety of seating, from rocking chairs by the fire, to tall-tops or couches....

Happy Hour basically boasted $6 liquor..you choose the add-ins. My friend and I both felt that they were 'light' on booze...but tasty. We choose a few appetizers....YUMMY! Oysters on the half-shell were $1/a pc...good price.

Loved the atmosphere. Service was good. Drinks just not very 'potent' (and I am a lightweight!).

Probably the most interesting and beautiful dining atmosphere I've ever enjoyed. Not to take away from the great menu/food and excellent service. The donut dessert should not be missed.

Herringbone occpuies an abandon garage that sat decrepit in the middle of a block in La Jolla for years. What the owners did with this space is truly magical. While leaving the outside of the building virtually untouched, they transformed the inside into an intimate space with live trees and dreamy lighting. A salad generous enough for two, two excellent entrees and a bottle of wine were about a hundred twenty bucks. Not bad. The waiter was a little too familiar for my taste -- note to waiter: I don't want to be your friend, I just want you to be my waiter.

The noise blasted us as we entered at the end of Happy Hour. Taking friends newly arrived from the UK for a real American experience, we were delighted at such good food and cheerful ambience. The young hostess and despite the generally younger than we are patrons, we really enjoyed the decor and atmosphere Our Cuban waiter was so helpful and understanding. The fried oysters were delectable my husband had the fresh ones and wished he had more. The oxtail appetizer was good but too much, less fries with it would have been better ,my sword fish slipped down easily. Two desserts both excellent were shared. The bill along with 7 drinks came to about $300.00 but since I did not pay I could not be certain. What I am certain about was dinner, atmosphere and service made our evening excellent. We will return!
