At the very least, the best restaurant in San Diego Im not very experimental when it comes to food. I’ve known about Addison for a long time due to Chef Bradley’s reputation. Nevertheless, Im a simple eater and wish I had a better palate. For that reason, I have been terrified in dining here. Yesterday was a special day for me so I wanted to do something special. After 10 years of wanting to try Addison, I had the courage to make a reservation. The elegance, the service, the presentation, the wines (Im a wino) was unforgettable. Ultimately, food is the impetus of any restaurant. I sat back and trusted the Chef to pick our courses. Most of the foods I tried for the first time. Im in awe that I ate the Coquilles St Jacques...probably the greatest combination of flavors Ive ever had Thank you Chef Bradley and your awesome staff for giving me the greatest dining experience Ive ever had.

We tend to dine here around our anniversary in January. It has always been amazing, but this time was truly exceptional. We went for the chefs tasting which doesn’t have a typed menu and we love that because we are adventurous eaters. Don’t forget to ask for a wine pairing. Their sommelier is knowledgeable and picked some great wines for our meal. Not only was the food incredible, but the service wasn’t stuffy, yet still professional and they definitely tailored service to our needs. The staff overall, friendly, attentive and we had a blast with them. Still stands as our favorite restaurant we have visited!!

Amazing service and food. Tough to rate as “excellent” value at the price point, but definitely a fun splurge. The 10-course tasting menu may have spoiled us for all other tasting menu dining experiences.

Amazing ambience and amazing service. We had Matthew and he was on top of it. He went over and beyond for our group. It was my birthday and received a card from the chef! Then we were able to go check out the kitchen after dinner and the wine cellar. The food was so amazing. Beautiful work of art also. Will go again in the near future!

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Addison. What a treat! We ordered the 8 course tasting menu and it was superb. The service was exemplary - attentive but not intrusive - and the pacing of the meal was perfect. We never felt rushed nor ignored. Each course was described and the flavors melded perfectly together. We arrived at 6:30pm and there were just a few filled tables but by 7:30pm the restaurant was full. The noise, even when full, was just moderate not noisy - perfect for a romantic dinner out.

We went with another couple and had a delightful time. We asked for the set menu and had a 4 hour dining experience. The wait staff waited for us to finished a conversation (part of the 4 hours) before explaining each course (10 courses) but we never felt we were waiting for them.

The wait staff helped with our questions, appeared and disappeared quietly, timed their food presentation. It was a fun experience; not to be found very often. But it will lighten your wallet.

We had the Chef's tasting menu. It was truly superb. We've eaten at some of the best in LA, NYC and St. Helena, and this meal compared favorably. Creative use of textures and taste without overuse of butter and garlic. Several of the dishes were exquisite. Very pricey. Four people with almost no wine was $1300 with tip.

Very expensive!
Offered a choice of 10 or 4 courses. Weren’t allowed to see the menus until we had decided which one we wanted!
The meal was spoiled as the room was extremely cold! Asked for the AC to be turned down twice!
Wasn’t overly impressed with the food for the price we paid.

although michelin does not rate restaurants in san diego, i agree with others that addison would merit at least one if not three stars if they did. the service was delightful and welcoming, not stuffy as can be found at some high end restaurants. the sommelier assisted with champagne and sauterne selections and provided a card indicating the producer and vintage so i could find some more at a retail store.

There are good restaurants and there are excellent ones. Addison is definitely the latter! From our arrival to the box of cookies at departure, the service was exquisite. Our waiter, Jason, was professional and friendly - he even gave us a tour of the kitchen. Every course of the ‘Chef’s Tasting Menu’ was masterfully presented and fabulously prepared. The wine selection of nearly 100 pages specialized in smaller, less known boutique wines. The atmosphere was elegant and festive. I don’t say this easily, but this is the best dinner experience to be had in San Diego! This experience will set you back a pretty penny, but it is totally worth it! Can’t wait to return.
