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. A new wine list and cocktail program for the outdoor lounge are also available.

Arterra Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I were staying at the hotel and did not want to venture out. We ate at the restaurant and were actually quite surprised by both the quality of the food and the service (which was outstanding). Would definitely consider coming back even if not staying at the hotel.
I went with a group of ladies for our Mom's Night Out. Some people ordered salads and the portions were very small. Our server was also NOT attentive and at the end of the evening I even had to ask someone to find her so we could pay the bill. And it was very expensive. I ended up paying $45 for a caesar salad and one martini.
The service as well as the food was great and would have warranted the tariff had there been a view of something ( like water ) other than the street view which is offered.
The noise level was more than energetic, it was too loud for any kind of normal conversation.
My experience at Arterra was good but less than what I was hoping for. The food was probably the highlight. My sushi was very fresh and tasty. These are my gripes: I went with a group on Friday night and the live music was horrible. It was an older group singing all classis rock like Simon & Garfunkle. The music did not fit with the style or scene at all! In addition the wine & beverages were completely over priced. The house wine was $9 a glass and that was THE LOWEST glass of wine on the menu. It seems strange when other nice restaurants in the area offer a larger variety at $6 or $7 a glass. I would maybe try it again on a night without music but then again the wine prices make me cringe. Sad because I really wanted to like it
Great venue! This review is for the Arterra's Re-Grand Opening on 2/17/11- Food was great, and plentiful, and the outdoor patios were perfect for the event. The 10.00 "donation" was very inexpensive for what was offered, and the live music was a great addition, which added ambience and flair. The event was "open" tables of food, so you could have as much as you wanted, but there were not "waiter" as such on the outdoor patios, so I couldn't rate for service.
The food was delicious but a bit overpriced for this economy. I would definatley come again and recommend it for my friends and family! The only thing that I suggest be fixed was the music, it was very loud and my family and I practically had to yell to be heard (we were also sitting two tables in front of the stereo so that might be why...). Very good food! :D
Had an 8pm reservation. Service was slow throughout, with numerous apologies for the slowness due to large private group (something the hotel does a lot of, so should not be an excuse). Special Restaurant Week menu was not very good. My seafood entry was served in a plastic oven bag in a bowl, looking more like a full diaper than a gourmet preparation (as there was NO preparation or presentation whatsoever!). Salad was the only exceptional dish that evening. Can not recommend.
When here with a friend as part of restaurant week. Heard it was awesome.
The fare while imaginative was not well executed and imaginative in name only. The appetizer, crab pots de courage, were the highlight of the meal but the meal went rapidly downhill from there. I was served this bean soup that was so green in color that it looked more like an industrial mistake than food. The brown and white tureen did not help the color mistake. The chef's attempt at al dente beans failed.
The main entree was sea bass and mussels un sacchetto. While a beautiful presentation, sea bass was on the tough side and the mussels rubbery. Over cooked, you think?
BTW: The servers were clueless. They could not even identify the dishes they were servi
We are big fans of Arterra and have been for many years. On this particular visit, however, the service was terrible. The restaurant was not busy, but our server virtually ignored us for the first half of our time in the restaurant. The bar was very busy and the live band in the lounge was extremely loud, we could barely hold a conversation in the restaurant because of the music. The food was excellent, as always, though they had run out of some of the dishes by 7 p.m.
Brought visitors who had travelled from Belgium (18 hours of travel) equipped with a Lonely Planet guide. They ate in several places in town and said that this was without question their best meal of the week...
We have loved Arterra for years - it never disappoints even though I have high expectations!
