Every thing was great. Best calamari I’ve had in a long time. Slow cooked pork and Halibut were excellent.

New menu was fabulous. We went for our anniversary. Our waiter Justin was wonderful. He took time to explain menu items with us and have a nice conversation.

Sushi was Delicious, however I felt it was overpriced and the service was terrible. It was not busy and we waited over a half hour for two rolls.

we've been going to 709 for many years, and go there quite often . service is always good, but the food has been hit or miss for the past year. they closed down and reevaluated their menu and staff. the new staff is excellent, as was the old.
we have decided to continue to support 709 during their transition. Saturday's dinner was just not prepared to my liking. my fillet was medium well, when i asked for medium rare. the server was excellent, and tried everything to accomodate my requests. no fault of her own. but, the chefs should pay better attention to what they are cooking. the sushi chefs also need to check the freshness of the fish they are serving. the usually "red" tuna was gray. we tried a piece each, and decided not to eat it, and it was then off our bill.
709 was "the" place to grab a great meal.... look at my other reviews. not too sure anymore.

The waitress was completely outstanding. When I ask for a few limes in my drink I usually ONLY GET ONE. This time the friendly girl brought over a whole plate without me asking! She accommodated my sick son and made sure they had some fries for him. The appetizers and food was delicious. It was a little chilly in the restaurant as seen on other reviews. The outdoor dining does overlook the parking lot as well. We will definitely be back. Please lower the price a few dollars.

What is going on at this place. Staff does not appear happy at this location at all. Used to be a good vibe here, seems to need a real employee overhaul

The service was excellent but the food was awful. Kobe burgers over cooked and the fried Palomar a very greasy. Wine list not enough choices and overpriced !

as usual, 709's staff was courteous and welcomed us as family. the food was top notch, and service impeccable. if you have the chance, stop in for a cocktail and great meal.

Food took way too long to come out. Steak was well done after asking for med/rare. Wrong dessert brought out and service was horrendous.

Al a carte & a bit pricey but menu was interesting & food was very good. Server was new but service was fine. The later you go the louder it will get. Will go again. Would not recommend the "speciality" cocktails.

Noisy and wasn't even full dining room. No bread, you have to order pretzels if you want to eat something while having your cocktails.
Steak dinner was more medium then medium rare and the sauce was very light and bland.

Overall I think this restaurant lost its punch.

As a party of 6, I expected that everyone would get their entree at the same time. Not so at 709. First 2 entrees came out. Then almost 5 minutes later , 2 more came out. Waited 10 more minutes before asking the waitress when the other 2 would be out after she assured us that they would be out any minute. The manager came over and he told us he would check on it in the kitchen. Needless to say they were out a few minutes later. This is unacceptable in my opinion. We were only a table of 6 and the restaurant was not crowded.

So if a staggered serving of dinners is your thing, then 709 is the place to go. If not, don't make a reservation there. It is a poorly run kitchen with little regard for the paying customer.I for one will not be going back and I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food and service were both awful. We ordered two orders of sliders and three sushi rolls. The two orders of sliders were both severely overcooked, and after sending one order back, it was STILL overcooked. The sushi was served lukewarm, as if it had been sitting out for a while - who wants to eat lukewarm sushi?? This was all after waiting for 10 mins just for drinks, never getting water refills, and waiting a long time for our food as well. AND they served two meals before the other two, who wants to start eating before the whole table has their food? The manager came out and comped us our food, not drinks, and we left without eating.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that service was lacking. We know it was a holiday weekend but we came in after 8:00 pm and the waitress who was only on day 2nd day of working there, had no clue that wine could be sold by the bottle. We had to go to the bar itself and cancel the order for the four glasses of wine and order a bottle. It took too long for basic apps and then meal to come out. We ordered sushi , salad and one entree and no bread was served or offered. When we asked for it , it came out ten minutes later and we sent it back.
Will we come back ?probably not for a while.
