Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is the only sit down dinner venue on all of Cedros Avenue. Unfortunately that means the monopoly beats all quality and parameters for proper rating."

  • "My friend and I had dinner at The Wild Note before a show we were seeing at The Belly Up. We arrived nearly two hours before the show- plenty of time. We had to ask the bus person for our waitress twice... Once to order after sitting for over fifteen minutes waiting for our wine to be brought to the table and to order, and again for our bill. The Calamari appetizer was good. The Caesar Salad was very bland and actually tasteless, unfortunately. We finally received our bill barely ten minutes prior to show time. We were never asked whether or not we were trying to catch the show, which I would think would be one of the waitstaff's first questions there, particularly since the restaurant is a part of the Belly Up."

  • "The Belly Up can sellout and parking in the area is at a premium. Go early, have a dinner and have some wine at the Wild Note. Good food, fair prices, side entrance to the concert. Very Convenient !!"

  • "The food was good, but a bit overpriced for the quantity you get in return. The mahi sliders were tasty, but small and not filling enough for dinner."

  • "Booked the a Wild Note after reading reviews here, they didn't hv a child's menu but staff very accommodating. They provided half portions if they could and offered pasta & few plain choices! From 3 course $35 menu, ahi mango roll & Caesar salad. Bacon wrapped scallops, crusted chicken, kids had tandoori chicken & sliders, every dish was presented beautifully & was absolutely delicious.banana chocolate fudge cake & my cheesecake, delish! I totally recommend this place, the food and service is top notch, Go there if you are in Solana beach! Ooh and just to add there is a music venue next door adds a bit of atmosphere but not so noisy !"

  • "Four of us decided to hit the Wild Note before a Belly Up concert. Although service right after we were seated was VERY slow, once things picked up we were extremely pleased with our decision. The appetizers were very tasty (although not huge or really suitable for large groups/sharing. All four of us raved about our main courses; in particular, the sea bass was FABULOUS as was the salmon. We will definitely return to this wonderful place."
