Wonderful experience. Phenomenal!
Oh my goodness. What an absolute treat. I took two clients to dinner. We ordered the Chef's mercy. What an absolute treat. It was a dinner that will be talked about for a very long time. I only get to San Diego once a year. I can't wait to get back next year to eat at Jsix again.

Highlight of San Diego Dining
Not only was the food exceptional--best mussels, scallops--but we were served complimentary champagne for the birthday we celebrated. Staff, from greeter to bar tender to servers, were personable and generous. Portions were adequate, and presentation satisfying. Best dining experience of our trip to San Diego.

Great anniversary evening!
Great evening, great food, friendly staff. We went for our 28h wedding anniversary. Started with drinks on the roof-top terrace. Dinner at jsix downstairs. Waitress was attentive and fun. Manager, Ben Carroll, was super. Food was delicious!

Hidden just enough to save on wait
Not quit a local spot but off the beaten path enough to take you away from the tourist scene. Menu is small but plentiful, wine selection is modest but adequate. Specials are available daily and simply delicious! Had the seafood pasta, offered variety of perfectly cooked seafood, with homemade thicker fettuccine in an amazingly awesome light wine and seafood broth sauce with cherry tomatoes. So great and fresh my 2 yet old wanted more!! Partner had the whole grilles fish, watched it being grilled with slices of butter, lemon and pepper places in the center and grilled perfectly served with black rice and nicely prepared collard greens.
It is a small place but they offer a really nice meal in a nice city.

5 course chef's dinner was fantastic. Give the chef free reign and let them surprise you. They do not disappoint. Picked up a 2004 Cab from the Wine Bank and received free corkage. Make sure you tip the staff extra when you bring a bottle.
1: Kimchee& crab salad with lemon sorbet. 2: Mussels, clams and fingerling potatoes with garlic aioli & cilantro. 3: Sweet corn and sage puree, herb faro, cipollini onions with sausage stuffed quail. 4: Horseradish potatoes, corn lava bean & tomato sautee with red wine braise short ribs ( 4 hrs). 5: rasberry semi-feeddo, chocolate walnut tart and hazelnut brandy gelato

Great Service, Great Food!
Dined here with my husband for his birthday after staying at the Hotel Solamar the night before. We had such a great experience. The server was very friendly and extremely attentive. He made sure we had everything we needed. We received complimentary champagne from the hotel for his birthday that we were able to enjoy at the restaurant. Food was great and was very fresh. We will definitely come back.

Needed a place to celebrate
We needed a place to celebrate closing a new distributor, this was the perfect place for the dinner. The appetizers were fantastic and the service was out of this world. Staff was friendly and I could not have asked for a better experience I would recommend to any and all.

Food was excellent. Varied menu some different dishes. Very enjoyable.

Order the Chef's Mercy
We dined at Jsix Saturday night and ordered the Chef's Mercy with wine paring. We could not have been happier with our food. Each of the 5 courses was just outstanding. Tasty, surprising, filling, beautiful,... We started with Tuna Crudo with carrot/cucumbers dressed in meyer lemon oil--maybe my favorite thing of the night, but hard to say. Then we had a sweetbread sampler and seared scallops, followed by a pasta with clams/mussels and braised short ribs; then a fat pork chop with amazing apple salad and polenta. The dessert was just beautiful with rasberry/merlot sorbet, fried bread, and poached pear. Each dish was accompanied by a different wine. Its a little pricey, but oh, so worth it. We will be back for this.

Recommended by a friend...good
Service and food were great..
Pardon pepper and stuffed squash blossoms were a first for us...and certainly will order again.
Good wine list and knowledgeable staff.
Will return there soon.

I didn't sit outside but my fiance and I we impressed with everything. The staff is great. They are knowledgeable about the chefs, background of restaurant and the product. Additionally they knew the menu and were helpful in recommending pairings or dishes. Five stars would be an underestimate for review... It would above and beyond the scale.

I went here with my dad and step mom to celebrate my dad's birthday. We had amazing service and the food was excellent. Will definitely go there again.

Fantastic dining experience from beginning to end - the staff really went above the call to make our experience wonderful. Excellent, locally-sourced food prepared with obvious care.

The food was very attractively
The food was very attractively presented and very good. The salads were especially notable. The ginger mocktail was very tasty. We mentioned to the waitress that it was the last day of our honeymoon. Even though we couldn't eat another bite, she sweetly brought us a very luscious berry gelato complete with a candle. Since we were staying at Solamar, it was very convenient for our last night in San Diego.

Jsix' Terrific Menu
Jsix has a medium-sized dining room with soft lighting at night and an energetic ambiance when full. There are several parking areas, one across the street and several within a block or so. Jsix menu offers a delicious array of organic produce and grass-fed/ sustainable meats/ seafood. I think Jsix plans to please and all personnel seemed to make the effort to make our visit a pleasant one. The Stuffed Tempura Squash Blossom was my favorite app, the crispy tempura covered a young zucchini and the blossom, which was stuffed with a creamy risotto. One of us preferred their Raw Veggie Salad & Burrata, which was beautifully plated, delicious, and perfectly dressed.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Michelle was wonderful. Service and timing was great. She was very attentive. Starter-marinated local tuna crudo. Raw tuna sashimi with a black garlic. OMG I could have a whole plate of it. Yummy. The black fettuccine pasta was also very good with the mussels. Main-Tumeric & Coriander Halibut. Loved that the fish was plated over raw veggies such as watercress and cucumber vs. cooked veg. or mashed potatoes. However, the halibut was overcooked and dry. He had the New York Steak. He said it was a bit tough. Dessert-cafe mocha creme brulee. They gave me fresh berries to replace the nut toffee due to my allergy. Very considerate.

JSix has excellent, innovative
JSix has excellent, innovative food. Service needs improvement - they need to staff up on the floor (one waiter serving several tables, no busser) and maybe also in kitchen (some of the slowness may come from there). Waits were quite long - we got first course 70 mins. after being seated. But we had an excellent time in the end since the food and drinks were very good and we entertained each other. Probably won't visit again for a while unless I hear service is improving. Kitchen very creative.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family and I had a wonderful dinner at Jsix. It was a birthday celebration. All of the food was delicious! From starter to main to dessert. Oh and lets not forget the drinks. Fantastic all around. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant to friends. Everyone at the gathering agreed we would come back.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the double cut pork
I had the double cut pork chop. It was cooked perfectly and came with an excellent sauce. The polenta was interesting, it was finished with what was probably goat cheese, which is not my favorite, and it did not blend well with the sweetness of the sauce. My wife had a salmon dish that she felt was very nice. The hazelnut ice cream was amazingly good.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
An unexpected find
My friends and I were in town for a convention and had been to several other places in the neighborhood that had been overwhelminging disappointing. We were about to give up on the whole neighborhood when we found Jsix--a breath of fresh air. The service was attentive and quick, the food was well-thought-out, fresh and simply delicious. Loved it so much, I went back for lunch the next day.

Excellent Service and Food!
JSix Restaurant did not disappoint us at all! We went with a party of 7 for a bachelorette night and loved it! The food was delicious and the service was excellent! Would definitely return for another special occasion with a larger group!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in San Diego to visit our college-aged son, took he and two friends to JSix for dinner. We ordered various entrees and appetizers and everything was delicisious. Very innovative combinations of flavors in the dishes.

Get the Chef's Mercy
The tasting menu is excellent. It's even better with the cocktail pairing. Service is friendly and usually prompt.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
J Six, great service!
This was a fun spot for a big group. We were celebrating a birthday and they even gave us a champagne toast and dessert! I've never been treated so well in a large group setting. The food was fresh and vibrant, don't pass on the short ribs! The only thing I can say is the acoustics aren't great inside so it was a little tough to hear everyone talking but otherwise a fantastic group dinner spot!!!Our service was amazing!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome food, reasonable prices!
We heard this place was great and we'd been wanting to try it for awhile. We had the opportunity with friends last weekend and we were not disappointed. We ordered off of the Tasting Menu and couldn't believe how much food we actually got for the money, but more importantly how impressive the quality of the food was. Nothing was ordinary. Try the squash blossoms stuffed with risotto, or the black fettucine for an appetizer and the scallops, short ribs or pork chop as an entree, but don't forget to order the cafe mocha creme brulee with pistachio toffee on the side for dessert. You will not be disappointed and all of the wine bottles are only $35 across the board, but better yet, only a $15 corkage fee and you can bring up to 3 bottles!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
always a great meal
We like to eat at J6 once a year or so. It has never disappointed. It is always, tasty and imaginative "comfort food" that is nicely served and convenient for guests attending conferences.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
we went on a kimpton 3 course tasting and wine special. everything was excellent. my entre, the braised short rib was the best (short rib) I've ever had. also good to note is that bottles of wine are half off on Wednesdays.
service very good starting with the maitre d who stopped by a few times to make sure we were enjoying everything.

Great Breakfast Place
We meet for a late breakfast on Friday morning after Thanksgiving at J6. We were seated immediately upon arrival and our waiter was on top of our service as soon as we sat. I had the Steak ang Eggs, it was delicious! Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their breakfast selection. We're local and live downtown, we're definitely going back to J6 for breakfast.

Best Place in San Diego!
If you haven't tried Jsix, you are really missing out! While their entire menu id great, try the Chef's Mercy and let them do their magic. My favorite place to eat!
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best in San Diego
The Chef's Mercy Menu with beverage is outstanding and a bargain. Each dish was an amazing blend of flavors and perfectly prepared and paired with the ideal wine or beverage. Certainly the best fine dining in San Diego.

This was our first time at
This was our first time at Jsix and it was terrific. We were way early for our reservation but the hostess was able to seat us anyway after only a brief delay. Service was both friendly and timely. The food was excellent. I had the scallops with duck fat seared potatoes, my wife had seared ahi with cauliflower puree and anise carrots. Both dishes were beautifully presented. Desserts are excellent too. The wine list is carefully chosen and moderate in price. We definitely will return.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Great Experience. We arrived
A Great Experience. We arrived about 4:30, went up to the 4th floor for a drink. Wonderful! Then down to the main dinning area on the ground floor. The food was some of the best and most interesting we have had in the amazing gaslamp area. The service was impeccable, but the best was saved for last, a chocolate creation that provided a totally new way to think about chocolate its many tastes and textures. Price was reasonable... but wait there is more... my wife left her sunglasses and the staff, rather than placing them in lost and found and waiting for us to call, tracked down our phone # (from open table) and called US! Will we be going back ? Absolutely!
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I wish I could relive the night!
When placing my reservation, I asked for a window seat, away from the kitchen and also mentioned I was celebrating my wedding anniversary. They met my request to the "T" and even surprised my husband and I with a complimentary glass of champagne and dessert in honor of our anniversary. The drinks and food were AMAZING! I recommend the sausage stuffed quail. Our server was the cherry on the sundae: friendly, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond for us. I would recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to go back! Best anniversary EVER!

San Diego Jsix
I wish there was another star to add to the service i received. Absolutely fantastic experience. Randall is to be commended for excellence in service, menu knowledge and for representing Jsix as an example of what service should be for all guests. i could not have had a better experience. Chefs frequent visits to me tableside made me feel special and important. Thank you to you all!
