This was an amazing experience from the beginning to the end. We were taken from our hotel Fairmont with a BMW X7 and greeted at the door of the restaurant. The staff was extremely kind. Everything has a harmont and coreography. We picked the 10course meal because we wanted the full experience - so glad we did! If you go there you might as well splurge and get the full experience. We did not get a wine pairing, we had our own wine with $110 corkage fee. It was worth it since the wine list very pricey. The food was amazing from 1 to 10 and its amazing how Chef William created wonders in each dish. Chef William is a gem and he is a wonderful chef. We were happy to meet with him. The dishes are very small but its very filling and I was extremely full at the end of the 10 courses.

The one Michelin star is a recognition for Addison, but it does not justify the food, service, atmosphere, and everything. I mean, this is a great example of how bad Michelin's judging system is. How is one star even enough? I say Michelin is BS. Been to quite a few 1's and 2's in LA and 2's and 3's in Hong Kong. Addison deserves a 3 AT LEAST. The best dinning experience one can get in SoCal. If you get to choose between the 5-course and the 10-course, go for the 10-course because it is a crime to miss anything from this restaurant. You don't want to regret your choice.

My partner and I both agreed that this was the best meal we’ve ever had. That first dish on the 10 course was fantastic! Everything was exceptional and they didn’t miss a single detail. The service and food stand out the most. Everyone was kind and professional. The service is even coordinated down to the second, meaning that your water is poured together, food is served together, etc. Which also means that we were 1:1+ with most of our servers, with one other designated person to walk us through most and answer questions. The location and Juliet balconies are also stunning. The only thing that threw us was the service is so impeccable that you do feel a bit as though you’re being watched (because, frankly, you are in order to get service like this). I don’t think there’s much they can change with that, but we did notice it.

Overall it was amazing! We will definitely come back next time we’re in town!

P.S. - get the wagyu if it’s on the menu!

Everything was perfect! The selections, the Malbec, the Krug, the service — it was all fantastic! I don’t think they should have charged me extra for the Wagyu beef— the 10-course meal was already pretty pricey, but other than that, it was all worthwhile. When I have another occasion in San Diego, I will return

This was a fantastic meal. Everything about it was perfect. The choreography service was spectacular. Prepare to spend a bundle but enjoy every bite and every sip. We got the five course meal and it was plenty of food. The wine pairing was excellent and the sommelier was very informative about the wines. In short this was an amazing meal!

This was our first experience to a Michelin Star rated restaurant. It was an amazing experience and we came away impressed. Chef William Bradley is the man! Look forward to go hear a different time of year to experience a completely new menu! In addition the wine paring was on point. Tried different wines and regions I was not accustomed too. The service was a choreographed symphony!

We did not care for the main course which was rare , tough squab.
We did not eat this as I never think rate poultry is safe and it wasn’t good anyway. Although we expressed our disappointment with is main course , no other course was substituted and there was no adjustment to the bill.
Otherwise the food was interesting and wonderful.
Service was phenomenal and setting/ ambiance hard to beat .

Just WOW! The seating arrangements they have due to the COVID tier restrictions was great!!! You get a view of the golf course along with the hot air balloons in the distance going up and down.

Our reservations were at 6 PM and the weather was perfect. You can expect a little chill since the coast isn’t too far but the way they had their patio heaters setup, it didn’t even feel cold.

Service was flawless! Well organized and choreographed to the “T”! You went to the bathrooms, there was a service staff standing near to show you where it is. You come back to your table, they are there to greet you back and push in you chair. Like I said...their service was flawless! They were always there ready to serve.

The food was delicious! Presentation of the food was beautiful and elegant. The service staff explained every dish to you so you’re not sitting their guessing. The flavors coming from each dish were mind blowing. We would almost dissect each dish to guess the flavors for each item and it was a fun challenge for me and the missus. We still talk about the food to this day!

We are definitely coming back!!! Such a beautiful place and great food!

So I’m in SD 3-4 time a year visiting family every year & I’ve been trying to take wife to Addison for the past year and a half. Of course the pandemic happened and pushed our 1st dining experience with Chef Bradley and his crew to April 2021 and they did not disappoint. We enjoyed the 10 course meal and it was utterly the most spectacular meal that we’ve had in years. All of the flavors popped and went together perfectly! The service provided by the team was impeccable and all of the members were friendly and sociable. The environment was breathtaking with the sunset occurring midway through our meal. I recommend that anyone who has the opportunity to take advantage and enjoy this experience!

I’ve been to a lot of Michelin started restaurants with my travels and I was really excited about visiting Addison. The ambiance, scenery and service were fantastic. The food on the other hand was, meh. When you pay $200 for a 5 course menu you should get something more than squab, which was gamy, for the end entree. The preceding 4 course were also so uninspired that my wife and I had a hard time remembering what they were. The sourdough was fantastic as was the opening appetizer course and the desserts. Maybe when the restaurants are open to full capacity it will be better.

Stunningly balanced flavors, great service and an awesome sommelier. Definitely a 5 star experience. They make their dishes with love and you can tell that a lot of thought and effort goes into it. If I would have any feedback, its that we were congratulated for my promotion and immediately offered champagne (before water). We didn't know the cost of what was offered. Later we realized it was the most expensive glass of wine on their menu. We would have appreciated seeing the wine list first. But I am still giving a 5-star review as they corrected the misunderstanding.

It was good, but I'm surprised they have a star. Food was really good, but a few courses were sub-par (the signature squab was actually not very good at all). Service was spotty, with many lapses in etiquette and a terrible mix-up on the wine pairing. But to be clear, it WAS a very impressive meal. Just when compared to other starred restaurants, and at Addison's price point, I would expect a bit more polish and attention to detail. And I felt like there were too many "upsale" attempts, which was rather gauche.

Everything was great! Probably the best fine dining experience I've had in San Diego.

My only wish is they list prices on a menu or paper when you get there. Even 3 Michelin star restaurants I've dined at still list their prices for you to see, so you can make an informed decision before ordering. My wife seconded that.
