“Awesome Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We always visit Ghihradeli. Hot Fudge Sundae is the best you have ever had. A little pricey, but a fun atmosphere.

“Most excellent ice cream and chocolate!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The lines might get long in the summer or during big events (like Comic-con), but Ghiradelli's shop is hard to beat and not to miss if you're a fan of amazing ice cream and/or chocolate. We stopped in for a post-lunch dessert and while there was a fairly good line, we were able to find a table for two and we were served within 10 minutes. I also like the way the staff are dressed in retro uniforms and were witty when interacting with us. The products are a bit pricier than going to a Baskin-Robbins or wherever but this is a better experience, and the quality of the food is superior.

“Expensive, but delicious”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We walked here after dinner on a Saturday night. They were pretty busy, but we ordered within 5 minutes of arriving. I got a waffle cone with chocolate ice cream. It was absolutely delicious, but pretty expensive. Next time I'd go with the brownie sundae or a milkshake, even though they are about $10.

Service was great. Lots of employees working hard to clean off the tables and making room for the large crowd.

“Top Off Your Night”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Ghirardelli has the best chocolate and a great store. They had lots of options for dessert and great service. We had the mint chocolate sundae and it was so good. Service was good and the staff was very helpful in guiding our decision that we would like best! Get your dessert here!

“Love Visiting Ghirardelli”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

We always visit Ghirardelli wherever there is one and visiting the one in San Diego is no different. We enjoyed our ice cream each time. The only thing I notice with Ghirardelli is that sometimes the ice cream has ice in it. This happens at the store in Florida as well. This time, my butter pecan had three big pieces of ice in it! I also don't find their ice cream all that creamy but their whipped cream and toppings are always delicious. A fun place to go regardless.
