New year’s eve at Addison. Very special meal, very innovative dishes expected at a Michelin star restaurant. Comparable to our meal at Single Thread 2 months ago. Great to dine where you can hear your companion at a normal speaking voice. Will return for future special occasions.

We had an incredible experience at Addison. We went for our anniversary and the entire staff was aware and wished us a happy anniversary. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent. Definitely worth a special visit.

Simply superb!!! Actually, superb is an understatement. The decor, the attention to detail, the presentation, the service, and, of course, the dinner was quite unbelievable. We were searching for a restaurant to celebrate a special event, but it had to be something exceptional. Enter the "Addison". It's much more than a 10 course dinner; it's an event, an occasion, an experience, and a phenomenon all in one! Our expectations were vastly exceeded to say the least. Each course was an adventure into a new realm of flavors and taste. We paused between each bite, not just to simply savor the unbelievable, but because our brains forced us to pause to attempt to comprehend what was going on because it had never received such inexpressible input! Our warmest thanks to Nathan, James, Sean, and Stefan as servers, because they truly are special people and specially chosen for their roles in the success of the evening. This is a "must" for anyone who desires fine cuisine and the experience is unparalleled. One thing is for certain; a dinner at the Addison will not be forgotten, ever!

The team at Addison made my daughters 11th birthday one she will remember for the rest of her life. The food, the staff, the chef, and the whole experience were fantastic from start to finish. I have been to Addison many times and I think the experience is consistently improving (which is hard to believe as each time we have been has been fantastic). Props to chef Bradley who is obviously not content with only one Michelin star. Thanks team Addison for a fantastic and memorable meal/experience.

We were there for the Thanksgiving Day tasting menu and I have to say it was a lovely experience. The manager (I am forgetting his name), was very welcoming and gracious - a perfect host. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. It is worth it to go back to see them again.

The food...some beyond delicious - the chou in the starter was really outstanding, the turkey moist and delectable (and the roasted shallot a star), the dessert super. Our feeling was the cold cranberry starter with foam was questionable, as was the next cold course...and the foam kept appearing in a few other dishes, which was lacking creativity - would have liked to have seen other textures in the food. The truffle supp from Alba were passable but not outstanding.

The bill was $2000 for 5 people, no wine, one beer, 4 negronis, a Johnny Walker black, and a Jim Beam.

Excellent service, excellent food. Had reservations for our wedding anniversary. We had the 5 course tasting: canapes, Alaskan king crab, artichoke au gratin, caramelized cod, and barbequed pigeon. We also had dessert, le grande finale. Everything looked too good to eat, and tasted even better. What a great dining experience!

Me and my 2 kids went to Addison to celebrate my daughter's birthday. It was the most amazing experience we have ever had. The service was impeccable, food was like no other and the wine out of this world. I have never witnessed synchronized service before and I do not understand how they do it so effortlessly. I highly recommend Addison to everyone so they can have a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you for the best evening ever.

Our experience at Addison was so much better than we could even hope for. It was very fun, the staff was engaging and so helpful, and the tasting menu was gorgeous. Hands down one of the best experiences. Definitely a must if you're in the area. Absolutely sublime.

It was good... It just wasn't $500 good. It's really rather sickening to see that parts of our society are wasting so much on something so trivial.

Food, service and ambiance were amazing. We chose the 5 course menu with wine pairings. It was closer to 8 courses with the amuse bouche and palate cleansers. Definitely came away full.

I guess if you can afford to eat here you shouldn’t be asking how much things cost in addition to the basic cost of the set menus. At least I was given a heads up by friends who went two weeks before and didn’t have complete sticker shock when we got the bill.

Service was excellent, food was very good but a little bit pricey for what it was. Need to work on the location in GPS or provide instructions for people coming from the city as GPS send you through back and cannot Accra restaurant that way.

For future reference, supplements should be clearly called out as all Michelin starred restaurants do.

We reserved a table at Addison's for my 65th birthday. The staff made the evening special in every way. The food is creatively prepared and absolutely delicious. I would love to visit the kitchen and watch the prep, start to finish. I can't imagine how it all comes together. They do a masterful job. It is a magical dining experience.

My bf and I celebrated our anniversary 4 years ago, I would say the service was impeccable but the food was good but too much for 10 course meal for a no Michelin Star restaurant and the price was too expensive than Grace of Chicago that has 3 stars. Fast forward, they earn their star, since my sister’s bday and give Addison another try. Over all the food was just right ,the taste has vast improvement and the service is still the same, impeccable. But the price is still on the high side for a 1 Star, they deserve at least a 2 star than 1 to match the price of the food and services. These Michelin people need to visit Addison again and give what they deserve which is an extra star. Thank you Addison for a wonderful evening.

This was a great experience. Service was exquisite! It could have been stuffy but the staff went with our mood and were professional, engaging and funny.

The food was inventive and delicious! Their take on chips and dip was exceptional! The savory profiteroles were to die for.

There is no way to comment on the wine list except to say, there is t enough time to make it through the list. Extensive is an understatement. They can cater to any budget and have many rare wines and vintages.

Be ready for a long evening. The ten course tasting takes time. But worth it!!

It’s an expensive undertaking so, be prepared.

An experience your palate and senses will delight in. If you have the stamina the ten course tasting menu with wine pairing it is quite the hedonists delight. Starting right with the amuse bouche and ending with the gift of chocolates when you leave.

Fine dining does exist in San Diego after all. It is an experience and not just a meal. Five hours of perfect service, perfectly prepared food, and great ambience. Not for those who are shy with their wallets, as a tasting paired with wine, with two of us was $1500 before the tip. If you are looking for a place to take someone for a special occasion this would be it. It was a great experience.
