My husband and I struggled to find "good food" let alone excellent food on our recent trip to San Diego. After reading many reviews and different websites we chose Donovan's based upon their purported reputation. We arrived to be seated at a tiny table near the emergency entrance, given that it was Saturday night and we are two smaller size people we chose to overlook this, my husband ordered his twin filet medallions medium and I my 6 oz filet med. rare, his medallions looked identical to my steak when cut open, he sent it back, while we waited a good 10-15 minutes for it to return overcooked - well done to say the least. In the mean time our waiter became non-existent not wanting to endure the unpleasantness of the situation. The manager came over and offered to cook my husband another steak, which we said no, after the desert of pure chocolate ganache - no cake just ganache, the manager returned with a filet in a doggy bag. We explained that we were visiting really did not want to take anything back to the hotel, they did credit it us for my husband's meal but still a very disappointing choice to say the least.
