Addison, San Diego's first two-star Michelin restaurant, offers guests a culinary experience unrivaled in Southern California. Chef William Bradley showcases the beauty and allure of California Gastronomy through a nine-course tasting menu that celebrates regional ingredients and influences. With its soaring ceilings and picturesque views of the surrounding hillside, the dining room creates a transportive setting for the tasting experience with an adjacent Lounge offering refined snacks and cocktails. Since 2006, the purity and precision of Addison's approach has led to global recognition for the restaurant and the San Diego culinary scene. Addison is among only 80 stand-alone Relais & Châteaux restaurants worldwide, and, in addition to its Michelin designation, is honored on La Liste, an international ranking system and guide. The destination has consistently received Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star accolades, as well as the highest recognition from Wine Spectator for its wine program.

    Addison is the best fine dining restaurant in San Diego, it is not even close. So many restaurants these days have a tremendous amount of hype with their celebrity chefs and decor but are a major disappointment when it comes down to the food. That is not the case at Addison. Chef William Bradly’s gastronomic dining experience is sublime and full of surprises. I said “wow” so many times my wife was laughing and enjoying watching my facial expressions as much as she was enjoying her food. Two Michelin stars are well deserved, Bravo!

    My best dinner experience ever! 9 courses were out of this world. We upgraded to Waygu A5 and an amazing luxury wine package to complete every single course! Don’t want to spoil anything, just try it out. So unique! Thank you so much for a special evening. God bless.

    Our experience was amazing. We substituted the Japanese A5 Wagyu for the Squab which did not disappoint. Our favorites were the apps in the beginning, the Caviar, the Wagyu, and the mini ice cream cones at dessert but everything was good including the cocktails. Highly recommend for a date night.

    Took my friend here for her birthday dinner. I don't want to say too much so as not to spoil the experience for anybody else so I'll just say this. The food is out of this world and the service is second to none! 100% would recommend but know, this is a very pricey adventure but totally worth it if you can appreciate the work that went in to preparing all these dishes.

    Phenomenal service and extraordinary cuisine. We came back after 6 months, and while the tasting course menu was largely the same, it was without a doubt more delicious. Incredible caviar and rice dish, and the sourdough bread may be the best bread on Earth. We recently went to the French Laundry, and Addison easily beats it in terms of service, ambiance, and food quality. We can’t wait to come back again in 6 months !!

    Growing up in Vegas I'm familiar with tasting menu experiences and Michelin Star restaurants so I'm coming in comparing those experiences. The service is impeccable and it is a very luxurious and pampering experience. As far as the food, it was good, not great. We really enjoyed every other course, the ones in between were fine, for the price being charged I expected better. It was described as California Cuisine but was mostly Asian inspired, which again is fine but misleading. Lots of fish from Japan which was interesting since they are proud of using local ingredients. We were served a very rich Squab towards the end that would have been better served in the middle as we were quite full by then. It was my 40th birthday and that wasn't really celebrated which is fine but surprising. I would have appreciated maybe a glass of champagne when we arrived or a candle with the last course but maybe they don't acknowledge celebrations there, I don't know, it was clear on my reservation. Overall I wouldn't do it again solely due to the price, it does not seem worth it. We stayed at the resort and that was certainly worth the money. The restaurant is very elegant and quiet so it is a beautiful experience overall but there just isn't the value for the money paid.

    If you appreciate fine art cuisine and a chefs discretionary menu this place is really a 3 star plus restaurant. The service is over the top and tables are spread so noise is not an issue. Since I don't eat meat, or butter or sweets. I skipped several courses but my wife eats everything so she managed to compensate. It is very expensive and for me not worth the cost, but you carnivores who like butter and custard and sweets in an artistic flavorful arrangement will be thrilled.

    It was too hard to find out about the menu at the restaurant. We knew there was a huge course menu, and we believed there was also a regular menu. We tried calling the restaurant several times and finally received an answer. Food was fabulous and friend who is mainly a vegetarian but sometimes eats fish was happy.

    Chef’s tasting menu was over-the-moon! Every dish was edible art and was layered with flavors! There were several dishes that were a surprise as the flavors melded perfectly together on your tongue and the idea was unexpected. The opener was five amazingly beautiful bites that were perfectly balanced and bursting with flavor. There was a caviar dish with sesame seed rice that was so delicious. The desserts were so special and of course the service was also amazing! Thank you for a Memorable night, we will be back! Thank you Chef! I am still bragging about the evening!
