Decent food overall. The GasLamp district of San Diego is touristy and pricey so looking on recommendation apps such as this and Trip Advisor I tended to go with the one that had “the least bad reviews.” I found it very New York style, cramped seating, but very friendly waiter who after pouring our wine said that he would let us enjoy that for awhile and come back for our order. Never felt upsold or pressured at all. Meal was good, cheese/meat plate for appetizer was great, wine fine. $180 for 2 people and enjoyed the experience. Might come back in town. We did indicate that it was our anniversary dinner in the Open Table notes but it didn’t get to the restaurant. No worries. If you are looking for good food and more relaxed atmosphere, I would recommend Asti.
Great Place, Great Food, Energetic
Service was amazing, ordered specials - Bacon Wrapped Shrimp in some type of cheese sauce was best bite of night. Wife order the Veal Chop that was 2nd best. I had the Chilean Sea Bass. Of course we finished off with Tiramisu.
All flavorful - would order each again but probably go to menu instead of specials since the menu has so many enticing offerings. (Specials tend to cost more as well).
Tip - Asti accepts the San Diego Restaurant Gift Card - they sell at Costo for $65 (for $100 - great value) especially at a 5 star place like Asti.
Food was medicocre. Atmosphere was worse. Crowded and extremely loud.
Good kind staff.
For the value in price it wasn’t worth it. The ambiance was nice and the service was great however the food wasn’t that great. I ordered the chefs special of the filet mignon covered in mushroom sauce and the lobster tail. The sauce did not look appetizing as it ruined the presentation (it was brown). The lobster was over cooked so it was chewy and I wasn’t brought melted butter nor lemons to go with it. We got a raspberry with white chocolate desert to share between two people. It really looked the size for a child. I don’t plan on coming back.
We came on a weeknight when there were mostly conventioneers there. You do not want to be in a place with hard surfaces echoing all the noise produced by a bunch of people getting drunk on expense accounts - unless you're one of them. The noise level was deafening. My wife and I didn't even try to talk to each other during the hour or so we were there. In fact, we only stayed - and I'm giving them as good a rating as I am - because the food was excellent (I had ravioli, my wife had linguini w/ clams and we split a salad). And the service was pretty good considering we were sharing a waiter with these large tables full of people ordering everything on the menu plus frequent wine and bottled water refills. We will cautiously give them another try when we're in town.
The food was outstanding and the ambiance just perfect. I would recommend it highly
Very average Italian meal. Nothing bad, however nothing inspired either. Ordered the seafood fettuccine and the tagliatelle bolognese and both were quite basic and bland. Expected more at this price point.
