One of the most incredible dining experiences of my life. Food and service on par with that one would expect from dinner with European royalty.

Best restaurant I've ever been to. The food is beautifully presented and tastes just as exquisite as it looks. The restaurant is gorgeous, and the service treats you like royalty from the moment you arrive, until you step off the property. Such a wonderful, wonderful place. I kind of like that it's a hidden gem, but the restaurant deserves every accolade that can be given. This is a definite "must try."

Wonderful special date evening with my wife. Service was exceptional from the minute we walked in, to we were escorted to our car and give a loaf of fresh banana bread.
When you are looking for that special occasion, try the tasting menu! From start to finish you will not regret the choice.

Some of the most amazing food I have ever, will ever eat in my entire life! The most amazing thing about this was the people. The food was to die for, but the people who worked there made every experience we had!! They gave us history, and told us everything, and explained every dish! I can’t even put into words the amazing food and service we received for 4 hours! Every single person at the restaurant presented a meal. Each time someone needed to use the restroom for the first time, one of the staff would walk you to the restroom so you knew where it was. The entire experience was so much more than I could ever describe!!! I would not have changed a single thing! The wait staff was so amazing, we even talked to one for a little while who is an E-7 in the Air-force Reserves. He took our picture before we left. This night I will remember for the rest of my life!

What an amazing service! I celebrated my 50th birthday here with my husband. The service here was impeccable from the minute we walked in the door.

I am in charge of all dining reservations in my house. Because I kept my maiden name, so my husband is usually addressed by my last name when we check in at the restaurant. He really hates it.

The staff called the night before and found out about it and addressed husband properly. He was pleasantly surprised by their attentiveness! I received countless "Happy Birthday!" from almost every staff that I lost count. I even got a birthday card from the chef!

Sean, who walked us to our table, patiently took pictures of us at every great photo spot along the way. Since it was dark, he took pictures both with and without flash, so we had many variations of pictures to choose from.

Our hot water was replaced numerous times before it ran out. The staff not only made sure it was replenished, but also to maintain the temperature of the water. The table assigned to us was a beautiful and private booth in a room that happens to reminds us of our wedding reception in Disney.

We enjoyed our dinner very much, and was pleasantly surprised to a very reasonable bill even with our truffles supplement charges. Ever since we started dining in Michelin 3 Stars restaurants, it had been difficult for us to find flawless service in other restaurants. I couldn't believe that we got to experience it here. It's exceptional!

Wow - where to begin?
There is nothing wrong with this restaurant, expect to say that it was just average with average servers. We opted for the course 'choice' selection and wine pairing.

The dishes were well plated, but the taste was just above average. Cumin was used in most of the dishes, which was nice, but it some cases it was a little over powering. My meat came slightly overcooked (uneven) and some of the wines did not pair well. That being said, their were two wines that were exceptional. We asked the sommelier for a list of wines a few times, but she never gave it to us.

The pacing of the meal was very good (5 stars) but it was hard to get attentive service. It wasn't very crowded, and most of the workers (servers, busboys, etc.) were 'hanging around' chatting near were we were eating - that in itself was very unprofessional in a restaurant rated at this caliber.

If you have about $500+ to spend on a meal for two, I can think of other places that give a much better experience. So the value just wasn't there.

About me...
I'm a foodie that has tried almost everything at various establishments all over the world. From the richest pampering on private islands to the deepest dark dives in the ghettos, nothing beats a truly memorable culinary experience regardless of where you go... and for that I try to be as honest and methodical in my reviews.

The evening was exceptional as always. The food was artistically presented and the flavors were amazing. The service was seamless and beyond reproach. I continue to believe Addison is one of the best restaurants in California.

We celebrated my best friend's birthday at Addison & absolutely loved it! This place was truly one of the most beautiful restaurants I'd ever been to! We're foodies and have dined in quite a few 3 star Michelin restaurants in Northern CA, but by far we loved this place more! The ambiance, the decor, the food & the value is by far better! The service was impeccable! If you want to make an impression on someone take them to Addison, you won't be disappointed!

Well, it's not the restaurant most could afford to frequent but if you want a special treat, it's so worth it. The service is impeccable. It is quite formal and dinner will take around three hours to complete but if you appreciate food, dining at this restaurant is a must when in San Diego.

Beautiful restaurant. Very good service. Didn’t mind that food and drinks were extremely expensive, but they did not rise to the level of quality equivalent to price ($900 for table of two). Food was really good but not excellent.

Nice environment, best creative foods we have ever had, super quality and presentation. Best service we have ever experienced.
Even the foods served before the dinner and/or between the courses, "free courses", were wonderfully tasted and presented.

There are very few places you can say are truly unique experiences and worth the money. Addison’s is one of those places. Have the Chef’s tasting menu and sit back and be amazed Each dish combined Wonderful flavors, colors and textures that delight one senses. Service was superb, not. Intrusive but efficient and friendly. Attentive from a distance they seemed to know the exact moment to clear plates and bring the next dish. Wine recommendations were spot on and wonderfully accompanied the meal.
Not your everyday meal but well worth the money. Already looking forward to the next excuse to go!

The chef choice menu is overprice and underachieve. We had the regular menu last time and I must say better than the chef choice but less pricey. Services is very good but again you 're paying $700-$800 per couple which should be exceptional but the restaurant does not meet that.
