Great food! The Cobb salad was wonderful and all meat dishes amazing. LOVE the filet....
For the price, presentation and quality of food was less than optimal.
The NY Strip steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious without needing any accent spices or sauces. Cocktails were perfect, very smooth with nice flavors and enough kick.
My husband and I love coming here, the food is delicious and service is great!
Outstanding food! We loved the appetizers, salads, and 4 main dishes. This place is a great. Can't wait to go back. I'd say this is definitely a San Diego favorite for many of us that try various restaurants around town.
Marvelous location; really really good food; excellent service and warm wonderful people.
Pleasant romantic dinner. Excellent food and my favorite Zinfandel was on the wine list.
Allure had great food, but the service was a bit slow. We were there early (5pm) and there were a few occupied tables around ours, but things did not move very quickly. The food was delicious so worth going back to try again.
We wanted to try a new experience before seeing The Lion King. Allure was only a 7 minute walk. It was before the dinner rush, so we ate off the lunch menu. The adorable bartender was also our waiter and very attentive. He knew the menu and made great recommendations. We'll come back for dinner next time!
I got the Cobb salad and cauliflower trio.
Cobb was delicious. The marinated tomatoes give the salad awesome flavor. I don't eat my salads with dressing so that helped a lot. The cauliflower trio was amazing. Carlo, our server, did a great recovery job.
After waiting for our food for 30min I had to ask why it took so long, and he thought snapping at me was a good idea. I noticed he forgot my cauliflower order, but he did a great recovery job overall.
He apologized, explained the delay and took care of my cauliflower that was delayed a little longer.
He was really helpful when I asked him about suggestions in the city, as we're foreigners.
I work in the industry, I understand having a long day and not wanting to deal with a customer walking in 20min before closing. But also, because I work in the industry I don't appreciate a server who snaps at me.
Once again, I think this was a very pleasant experience, but I'm not quite sure if I'd come back if I end up in San Diego any time soon.
This is a small restaurant with a nice feel and good staff but only one waiter on a holiday weekend. Although everyone worked together they seemed to need one more wait staff. Caesar salad was good with the right amount of dressing too. The filet was supposed to be medium but it came out raw - not rare-raw inside. Cold bloody raw. They cooked it up butt came out well. I didn't ask for a new meal because my husband was finished. This is a nice spot over all but the needs a little work to be a place I would go back to.
We ate here on a quite Sunday night. Food, atmosphere and service was great. If we lived anywhere near San Diego this would be a regular stop. Save room for the grilled carrot cake sundae desert.
The food quality was excellent. The service could use some help server give us advice on food quantity and we received too many courses and too much food. We are in a hurry to go to apply the food service was not timely and we were rushed at the end. With the overall food quality would still give us an excellent rating
Outstanding food- amazing foods made on site
The lamb shank was delicious + the salad was scrumptious!
