Arterra is putting itself back on the map with a new chef, innovative menu, exciting events and plenty of music. Diners are invited to travel around the globe one bite at a time with newly appointed Executive Chef Evan Cruz’s new menu, inspired by his expeditions around the globe and ample experience in San Diego and beyond.
Behind the sushi bar, Chef Andrew Hoh continues to create signature rolls such as his fresh Albino Roll and decadent Scrumptious Roll which combine the eclectic flavors of Southern California, a technique he is known for, while inventing new rolls on the spot to diners’ delight.
In addition to their new menus, Arterra has rolled out a new craft cocktail program starting with a new bourbon menu featuring a selection of premium, handcrafted bourbons, bourbon infused cocktails and bourbon flights of small batch, single barrel, grain, age and distillery bourbons.

The food was amazing! I had the salmon and my date had the burger(which I had a bite of), both very very good! For desert we had the fresh baked cookie with a scoop of ice cream on top, big enough to share! I would recommend this place to friends and family!

The Sishi is as good as you will find. My daughter is on restricted diet and the kitchen was able to accommodate all our requests. Best dinner we have had in a long time!

Thanksgiving Buffet: turkey was very good; beef was unfortunately salty; nice to have mixed salad with dressing on the side -- one in our party cannot have vinegar or citrus

Good for happ hour and dinner. Cool chill spot. Doesn't seem like too many people know about this place so you'll most likely easily get a reservation. You don't even really need a reservation.

Excellent food. I had a New York steak that came paired with braised beef cheeks and yukon gold potatoes au gratin. Delicious! This is an excellent chef, and the food here is really, really good. Its in the Marriott, and it does feel like a hotel restaurant, but they are remodelling it in late 2017. If you are looking for great food, this place is worth going to.

Waited 15 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation through Open Table. Once seated, we waited another 15 minutes for our draft beers, which were flat and needed to be replaced with bottled beer. We got some bread and butter about 20 minutes after the bread. The food cam about 15 minutes later and both dishes were not good at all. The pasta was undercooked and the risotto was overcooked. Each of us took only a few bites and ended up not even taking it home. Overall a bad experience.

The food was excellent but the wait (between the order and the time when the food actually arrived) was very long. Possibly, due to Valentines Day.

Arterra has become our Wednesday night meeting place. The food is so good that we have tried almost every item! I especially love the salmon entree and the way it is served. My husband alternates between the sushi choices and the regular menu--there are so many terrific options.
The service is superior from the hostess to the servers to the bussers. The chefs are so creative that they change the menu with the seasons to offer the best ingredients and create even more choices. The desserts are divine! My favorite is the chocolate silk bombe.

I was at Arterra 6 years ago and was amazed. So when I saw that they were doing a Thanksgiving Brunch this year (2016), I was expecting a great experience. It was not good at all. The booths and chairs are scarred and soiled. They have throw pillows in the booths because you have to sit on them to keep from sinking into the worn out cushions. I literally felt like I had to climb out to get out. The Thanksgiving brunch was a buffet, and we know that you need to expect chafer food but there was very limited selection. It seemed that they were all about the meat which was good and plentiful. We do not feel that the experience was worth the $49 price. The restaurant never got crowded, so it was not a popular destination on this eating holiday. We won't go back.
