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!

We had a lovely evening at Addison for a birthday celebration. Everything was beautiful and over the top from the greeting to the choreographed service, the food and matching wine pairings, to the morning granola gift. Thank you Addison we will return again.

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.

My husband and I have been here twice. If you have been, definitely must try! The service, the food, and the ambiance is just so spectacular and unforgettable. If you are looking for the best food in Sand Diego and a romantic date, this is the place to be. We’ll for sure go back! We love Addison staff, and looking forward to meeting Chef Bradly when we visit again! ❤️

service as good as 3 star in france. Food unique, with King Crab and Waygu quality best. too long for a 5 course menu, can do 8-10 at Troisgros in 3+ hours.
as a serious wine collector who has most of the Burgundy's on your list, had to be careful to not bring one because paying half of your wine list price is stupid.
Corkage of $110 is fine. Upcharge on Paul Bara rose silly.

Addison is where I chose to celebrate my company's 5th anniversary. Normally, we go away on a staff retreat but because of COVID-19, I wanted a way to honor my team and to be safe. So Addison was the perfect choice. We sat outside, ate a delicious and leisurely 10-course meal. The food was equally beautiful and memorably delicious. Sarah and Sean and their team provided excellent service and made us all feel very special. Thank you to the whole Addison team. Chef William Bradley outdid himself again. I highly recommend Addison as the "go to" place to commemorate special occasions.

very good, maybe worth it's michelin star. service was excellent.

but probably the worst value in dining i've experienced in a long time. portions are TINY. as in the fish course is smaller than most amuse bouche. main protein course (both the wagyu and squab) were no more than 4 small bites. yikes.

with 1 wine pairing, tip, and upgrades (truffles, wagyu) was $1000 even. been there, not going back.

It was only my second time visit Addison but like the first time it was a very pleasurable experience.

The service was exceptional and the food in my opinion is the best non Mexican inspired food that I have had in all of San Diego.

I went here for my birthday and the only thing I would change is to include my family and friends.

It is quite expensive, but the culinary experience is something you will never forget.

I will say it is more of a bourgeois dining experience so if you’re not into that then this not not the place for you.

It is not worth for the value versus investment. The food was ok. The hard bread with butter, tangy taste on foods and food quantity was not enough. We were hungry after the 10 course meal.

The food and service were outstanding, but in our view, the meal was significantly overpriced. We have had tasting menu experiences in fine restaurants in Montreal, Paris, San Francisco, and elsewhere. This was the highest price we have ever paid for a meal, and we only got the 5-course meal rather than 10-course. Also, the five wines paired with the meal were meted out in extremely scanty pours, about an ounce a piece, despite our having paid $175 each to add the wines. Overall, a nice experience but you can get the same quality and service without paying $1000 for a party of two.

I really wanted to give this restaurant 5 stars but unfortunately where they seated us wasn't very well thought through. We were seated at the top of a staircase, farthest away from the heaters and direct/string lit tables. It was just too dark even with the candle they brought out later. We couldn't see the main entree or desserts which is such a shame given how beautiful the other dishes were. Service and food was impeccable... just wish we could have seen and enjoyed every course.

Memorable dinner, but wouldn't do it again. Service noticeably slowed down during second half (10 courses) for an uncomfortable total length of meal.

Execution, presentation, and service were all excellent.
