    We had a great experience at the Addison! It was not just culinary, service was also remarkable with utmost attention to detail and well being of their guests. This is a prix fixe 9 course menu and one of us added the white truffle option. Huge wine selection. Will they get their 3rd Michelin star soon? The cuisine is very inventive and expertly crafted, with a focus on seafood products. That said, the squab was absolutely delicious, cooked to perfection and melting in mouth. The only thing that threw me off was the potato chips (while nicely presented) and dip, served in the middle of dinner, and not presenting any special tasting quality compared with the rest of the courses. Overall, we had a great time and we would definitely recommend the Addison for a special occasion.

    The meal was exquisite - the wines were unique and inspiring. The service could not be beat. Jacques and all the others truly enhanced the whole experience. The pricing is steep, however the chance to splurge on such an amazing experience was worth it. The room is going to be getting an upgrade soon which will be most welcome - it's quite dated and doesn't match the vibe of the food.

    Amazing. We did the reserve wine pairing and I would be curious to try the regular wine pairing because we were not impressed with the reserve pairing which was $500/person, on top of the tasting menu price. The service was unparalleled to be honest. We would visit again but NOT with the reserve wine tasting.

    As we sat, we were asked if we wanted still or sparkling water. Then the champagne cart came next. We each ordered a glass. Just be aware that this is an additional cost to your meal. Then the server came by and asked if we wanted to upgrade with 3 different options, wagyu, caviar, or truffle. We chose the 1st 2. Before we were served our champagne order, we received a drink that cleansed our palates. Then the sommelier came to our table offering 2 wine paring options. This is an additional cost as well and it’s about the same price as your 10-course meal or higher. The sommelier is a very good story teller and her explanation of each wine she served was so engaging. All the dishes we received were exceptional and had a distinct taste on its own. Immediately, after our first course, we knew why this restaurant is rated with 2 Michelin stars. It’s that good! The servers. What can I say? I was very impressed and entertained. They were synchronized like a symphony orchestra in the way they place the dish on the table and the way they remove them. One person holds the tray. Then 2 servers, at the same time, pick up the same dish and place on our table the exact time. This perfect coordination was also done when removing the plates from our table. When I needed to use the restroom, a server escorted me to the front of the restroom. During dinner, I got cold and asked for hot water. Coming back to our table, the server gave me a kettle of hot water AND came back with a heated pillow that she places on my back. Overall, we were impressed. We were treated like a king and queen. Food was something we talked about the whole night. This is definitely an expensive dinner but well worth the price. I can’t wait to go again

    Every detail was exquisite. Chef’s masterful, thoughtful, inspired, and playful cuisine made each course an adventure. The wine program is impressive with producers and vintages thoughtfully selected—some very special wines priced quite fairly. Service is flawless and the presentation is artful. Worthy of a 3rd Michelin star!

    I only tell the waiter upgraded one of my guest’s main course to wagyu and everyone upgrade white truffle no caviar. But when everyone got drunk and they serviced everyone on my table with the wagyu, white truffle, and caviar. so my bill went to a crazy price and I have to pay cause all my guests are around me I can’t argue with that

    As noted above & below, A+ service + food quality & presentation. What was BAD & HORRIBLE was: 1) clearly noted wife’s Bday & no candle or dessert chocolate smear “Happy Bday” on her dessert plate as requested & promised in both OT resy & verbal confirmation by the young woman caller earlier that same day, 2) poor to no selection of regular tea or black tea or even classic & common “English Breakfast” tea with our Server coming back and saying “sorry, it looks like we are out.” This the last 2 experiences before handed their $700. check. Not good…hello Mr. Bradley.

    Everything was fantastic, from start to finish. Patrick, Kyle, and the entire team, including Chef's appearance at our table to shave the amazing truffle he "picked just for us", was top notch. I'm sitting here reviewing the menu and reliving every mouth-watering bite. We added the "absurd" wine pairing and it was exactly that, from the "Cristal" Rose, to the 1968 Rioja, and wrapping with the 1936 Rivesaltes. Just a remarkable, once in a lifetime experience. That said, next time I'm in SD, I need to go again! I have no idea what Michelin is waiting on, give this team the third star!

    Talk about a magical experience at Addison. The tasting menu really explored Californian cuisine. They accommodated my vegetarian dietary restrictions wonderfully and I didn't feel like I was an "after thought" at all. The vegetarian dishes were just as thought out as the meat ones (maybe even more so)! The servers were all very kind and knowledgeable, choreographed, and synchronized movements were always around the corner for some elevated serving flare. We opted for the “standard” wine pairing and were not disappointed on how each beverage complimented the dishes. If you are able, I would recommend as the sommelier was so approachably passionate about the wine list. I think the real star of the show was the chips and dip (or fish and chips if you get the caviar upgrade) but honestly each bite was revolutionary and fun. There was a slight mix up with one of the dishes, but our server righted it in the best way and after our meal they even allowed us to see the kitchen, talk to the chef and explore the wine room. It is a luxury experience, but you will be talking about it for years to come! Fingers crossed they get their third star as you can truly feel the passion and creativity in the dishes. I would love to visit again at the change of season.

    A really spectacular experience from start to finish. Really welcoming and attentive staff, incredible, artistic food, great mocktails. Splurge for the wagyu, you won’t regret it. The chef’s signature dish with caviar will make you completely rethink anything you’ve ever known about caviar. I would absolutely go back, if we visited the San Diego area again.
