This is a special place. Had the best porkchop ever. Atmosphere was nice and upscale. Everything our group ordered was wonderful. Prices are $45 to $50 per person but worth every penny. Will definitely be back.

Hands down, one of my favorite dining experiences while traveling. Had the "special" burger and it was amazing. My travel partner got to peek inside the kitchen and the BGE. Chef was super nice, all service was excellent. Highly recommend.

I have eaten at La Jolla several times, and it DOES NOT disappoint. The food is always EXCELLENT, and the staff is lovely. I guess the only thing that is a negative is the location- a strip shopping center. The decor is simple and the...More

It's seems to me that the place was kind of casual. I think you'll be ok but you won't find a lot of folks super dressed up. But I wouldn't let that stop you. Go for it and have fun. Happy birthday
