was recommended by many. went there for lunch. The menu was minimal. The hamburger was so-so. Not exciting at all and I do not understand why the fuss

I've been here twice now. The first was for happy hour. I sat and had a glass of wine while the bartenders did their side work the entire time. They weren't rude at all or dismissive, but I didn't feel welcomed so i left. The second time was for brunch and yet again the bartenders were doing side work, merging... More

We had recommendations to go here and read strong reviews about this restaurant. Unfortunately our experience was dreadful and our special evening out was a disappointment. The restaurant is large and hip (along with that comes noise). Upon walking in we checked into the hostesses station. The hostesses were less than friendly and told us to stand aside until they...

First two times I ate here it was flat out great. This time not so much. It's a noisy spot but to be expected in this trendy hip spot. Shrimp and grits was one of the best thing I ever ate, prior to. This time: service was really bad and crazy slow. My fiancé and I shared 2 meals, one... More

We tried multiple items which were average in taste, I have had better crab cakes and shrimp and grits. Was excited about duck pot pie but it needed more flavor, hubby had scallops which he enjoyed. Our favorite course was dessert, chocolate mouse. Our server was nice and helpful with suggestions. We did like our drinks, peter rabbit and strawpeno.... More

Currently a SD hotspot. Five business colleagues chose this for creative dishes and lots of small plates. Great variety of seafood. Crab cakes blue cheese and fennel sweet! Grilled octopus with hot pepper infused pickled cucumber and avocados was most unique and awesome. Fish of day Mahi mahi cooked to perfection. Friend said his $50 steak was awesome. Food tasted...

One of the best restaurants in San Diego. Right in the heart of the Gaslamp. Was a Saturday night so was busy but make reservations. Great vibe and decor. Food choices were good. Definitely would go back.

Wife and I had dinner and came away somewhat disappointed. The noise level of the music and the crowd was over the top loud and didn't fit with the menu prices. Looks like the restaurant can't figure out if they want to be fine dining or a sports bar. Online menu showed many more steak options than what were available... More

We had a group dinner here with a preselected menu so we couldn't choose anything. I had a great steak and everyone in our group was impressed. The service is fantastic with changes in silverware from appetizers to dinner. Who doesn't love that?

Went here for a late lunch and was recommended by the Hotel Indigo staff and well worth it. Had the Royale with Cheese burger and it was amazing! Came with house salad also awesome and ordered garlic fries which we didn't need and was also great! Great service too and great ambiance
