There's may not be a better restaurant in Southern California. The execution was superb and service world class. The sablefish with dehydrated kale and 24kt gold flakes was my favorite course. My date never stopped smiling.

The stars are the customer service, formality, and ambiance. The wine pairings were ok, but I have had better at Saison in San Francisco and at Manresa in Los Gatos. The food was good, but still lacking compared to the other restaurants mentioned. The labels of each wine were not read to me 100% of the time during the pairings.
They need a new pastry chef. That was one of the worst desserts I have ever had during a tasting menu. It was like eating a dry scone during high tea. They need new pastry chef for sure.
All in all, thier strengths would have me come back again, but likely not as often as one would think. I have too many choices in CA to pick from: Providence in La, Studio in Laguna Beach, Manresa in Los Gatos, Saison, Atelier Crenn and Benu in San Francisco, and of course Redd, French Laundry, Bouchon, Meadowood, La Toque in Napa Valley.
This is a great date place because of the service and decor, but it does lack in food when compared to all those other restaurants. It is better than Patina and Melisse in Santa Monica. I would go back but it isn't first on my list if I have to make a weekend of it.

Another fantastic meal at one of the classiest, most elegant and top-shelf restaurants — and jaw-dropping dining experiences — in the country. Food is not cheap but 4 courses for $110 isn’t crazy expensive. Optional wine pairing, also $110, is not quite what you’d call a value but for a special occasion it’s fine: tasting incredible wines you simply won’t find anywhere else. If you appreciate lovely ambience, inspired cuisine and impeccable service, splurge on Addison. You will not regret it. There is simply nothing like it anywhere in San Diego. Free valet parking, delicious, perfectly presented short cake cookies as a take home treat. And go early and hang for a bit at the bar. Guys: wear a sport coat. Bottom line: beats spending hundreds on theater, concert or sporting event.

Outstanding everything from when we arrived to when we left!! We did the chef's choice which was some 9 courses and not going to lie it was very expensive. However you get what you pay for and the service on top of amazing food made it all worth it! Highly recommend!

This is by far the best restaurant in San Diego and maybe in the whole US! We came for my husbands birthday and had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Everything was beyond amazing: the service, the food and the wine were all at the highest level of perfection. It's an expensive adventure but worth every penny.

The most amazing night we have ever experienced! From the moment we arrived when they identified us without asking and offered event congratulations to my guest unbeknownst to him; making for the very best beginning. To say that the service was top notch is very light and seems almost mundane. My voice cannot yell loud enough or proud enough to give gratitude for how my party was pleased with the evening based on the many arms of service.
The food was stellar and each bite was simply exquisite! The ambiance, restaurant and overall experience was unlike any other myself and my guests have ever enjoyed and plan to attend again.

A truly unique and wonderful experience awaits at Addison where chef William Bradley's spectacularly creative multi-course menus feature delectable and succulent dishes that come beautifully presented with class and Swiss watch precision. The wine list features a very broad and outstanding selection as well. One feels instantly at home in the large tuscan decor, and while it’s not cheap, thanks to the warm hospitality that is essential for a memorable meal, one leaves the Grand Del Mar magnificent property with only one thought in mind: it’s to be back!

Thank you!
