Wally's Desert Turtle
The best restaurant in southern Ca.We had the best meal of our lives for our 27th anniversary. The owner, Michael, came by to chat and make sure we were enjoying our dinner. Everything was perfect, the service, food, and ambiance. We come here from San Diego every year for the past three years to celebrate our anniversary and I hope we can come for many more.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMikeWe love this 5 sta Restaurant.

We feel it is the top restaurant in the Valley and is a perfect place to take guests for a high-end experience. Other restaurants have excellent food and/or service but for great food, first class service and a sophisticated ambience Wally's stands alone.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst ClassI love the atmosphere and feeling of traditional, first class service at this restaurant. The staff were very accommodating and always there when needed. The ambiance is truly spectacular and that only rivals the food which was fabulous. We had margaritas that were also fabulous. This place is steeped in traditions, great food and is first class in my book.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance and great food!First we sat at the bar for a drink...wonderful cocktails...wonderful bartender...Romantic booths...fabulous sweetbreads...sole and the reduction sauce accompanying the rack of lamb was indescribable...attentive staff...water glass was never empty...the owner personally came by our table to see if everything was satisfactory...The ambiance was only surpassed by the delectable food!
