It seems that many folks have experienced something similar- this restaurant was closed at the time of our reservation. I’m not sure if their hours have permanently changed, which would likely call for some communication with open table regarding reservations during certain times.
Luckily, a friend looked up the restaurant before we went - because it is closed down.
Made a reservation and was confirmed for 4 people on Wednesday, Nov 13th at 5:15 to celebrate a 60th bday party and attend a play at the civic after. Upon arrival, the restaurant was closed, literally closed with no tables in site. Only thing we saw was an empty bar and someone mopping the floor. So disappointed that this happened. Open Table and Double Standard did not both to contact us to reschedule, cancel, give us an idea. We were tight on time and had to find somewhere else to dine
They were not open. There was a moving truck out front. 59513367638__D4CCFE05-5D1C-447D-9DC7-F5B24064B30C.jpeg
Showed up at our reservation time and the building was dark and locked up tight! There was even a lock-box on the font door. Thanks Double Standard for the great service and making our party of 6 feel welcome!
We show up Saturday night and the resta
Went to restaurant before time of reservation and wasn’t even open for business. There was no indication of this at all.
We will not visit DS again. Staff was not very knowledgeable about the items on the menu or the drinks they served. ALL the food we ordered was extremely salty. The octopus could not be eaten due to the terrible taste. When we received out bill they had the incorrect items on the ticket. When the bill was fixed and correct we were very upset to pay almost $100 for food that we did not enjoy. I would advise people to try a different place!
Lovely relaxed space. Delicious food, good cocktails and nice wine list. The broccolini is amazing- pastas and salads are all delicious. They roll up the windows when the weather is nice, which is almost always, so the space is full of fresh air. When we are in San Diego for business or pleasure, Double Standard is one of our favorites.
We had the focaccia bread and burrata for starters and were very pleased with both. For dinner, the four of us had a variety of pasta dishes, and all of them were very tasty. The drinks were very good as well. I recommend the Fig Mule. My sister had the rose drink and didn't care for it. Our waiter was very friendly and gave us a few laughs. The couch seats were very comfortable, but the guys had to switch out the wooden chairs for comfy ones. We came early and had the place to ourselves on a Saturday for about an hour before it started getting a little more busy. We had a great time.
Nice, casual ambiance in Gaslight District. Good pasta!
Food was so so nothing special. We order few appetizers, octopus was the worst octopus we have had in a restaurant, small tentacle, chewy and not flavor. The focaccia bread was good. I order steak, ordered medium rare came out almost medium well didn’t want to wait for the food because they took a long time for appetizer and main course. My friend ordered salmon dish she didn’t like it, the whole table didn’t think the food was good just editable. And the server we had wasn’t the best either. I won’t be coming back.
Great place in down town San Diego! Loved the food and drinks. Also all the staff es incredibly nice. I’m sure we will come back!
always a great go to choice for us
We were seated outside as requested and it was a busy Friday night with lots of foot traffic to watch. Our server was very personable and the food was ready quickly. He checked back on us several times. The food was excellent. My husband and I both had the salmon which was seared perfectly. The asparagus purée was delicious. My only suggestion would be additional entrees to include shellfish. Great restaurant.
Delicious Italian fare in trendy contemporary environment.
Made the reservation for my daughter’s birthday, arrived at 7:30pm, it wasn’t busy, only 3 tables of customers! Server was not busy, though the music was loud! Because we have kids we placed the order right away including appetizers and entrees. It didn’t take too long for the appetizers to arrived, we finished the appetizers and waited for awhile, we haven’t seem the server for awhile not until 8:48pm I decided to follow up on the entrees and the server told us that the items weren’t ordered, there might be misunderstanding between us due to the loud music, but she could have check on us for over an hour. So we cancelled the entrees and went to another restaurant instead, the experience was bad
I had a business meal we had the brussel sprouts the octopus the broccolini the bruschetta the meatballs and some other dishes to share all all of our excellent
Amazing. You will not regret going. Get the Brussel sprouts. And the mussels.
The food was a little bit salty. Everything else was great.
Ness was awesome as a server and host at the restaurant!
I liked the location and the service was OK, however we had two pasta dishes, neither of us ate half of the meal. One was noodles and short ribs (may have been 4 small pieces with a lot of noodle. Had the cheese plate appetizer, its presentation looked like it was thrown together, with 4 large pieces of bread that needed to be smaller ( and more of them) to be adequate for the plate.
We loved our meal, especially the octopus appetizer.
Food was great! Service is very slow.
Waiter was friendly and provided very good service. The food was fresh and the gnocchi was delicious. We were there on Friday night July 5th and unfortunately could not get the mussels which I was looking forward too since they were not able to order on the holiday the day before. I liked the atmosphere. The bar area did get loud, but just made it lively. If you want quiet atmosphere this might not be it.
It was the 4th of July and there were maybe 20 people in the whole restaurant. The service was terrible. AWFUL. One server. So much so that even though we came a full 2 hours before the fireworks, we missed them. The food was just ok... mussels smelled fishy and weird so we got them comped. Pappardelle was just ok. The meat/cheese platter was fine. Loved the Brussels sprouts!! Overall will never be returning.
The atmosphere was unique and enjoyable. The service and food were excellent. We had a nice wine and the lasagna pizza and margherita pizza. Both were excellent. Ingredients were very fresh.
Great food. We tried a few dishes and every one of them were really good! We will be back!
Very nice place within walking distance to Petco Park . Great personal pizza!
I had a lovely table along the window. Ness was my server and he was very attentive and made a great recommendation...the mussels are the best I've had coast to coast recently. Mussels are my go to dish when trying a new restaurant and they were sooo tasty with just the right amount of spice.
I work downtown and I have drove past this place countless times. I also loved the way it looked from the outside. My co workers told me the mushroom toast was to die for and they were right! Everything we had tasted delicious. Prices are to be expected for downtown. I plan to come back to try the proscuitto brushetta.
Always love going to this place, the service is good and the food is fantastic. We stopped here for brunch and our server Amanda was amazing! She was super friendly and outgoing and made sure to stop by often enough to keep things refilled. The patio is dog-friendly too, which is always a nice perk! Be sure to try the avocado toast and get a grapefruit mimosa - totally delicious combo!
The venue is lovely great décor, good location with great energy. Good for larger groups though it was a bit loud which made it hard to hear at the long table. Our waiter was excellent: attentive but not obtrusive. The meals were hit and miss. The pizza and pasta dishes were fabulous. The meatballs and mussels not so much. Half the group loves or meal and the other half didn't care for it. Over although I would recommend.
This restaurant was a hit with my friends who are locals and they said they would return in the future. Service, food and overall value was great at Double Standard!
Food was very underwhelming...I do not understand the positive reviews. The service was extremely disappointing, particularly considering the restaurant was completely dead and low-energy on a Friday night. A friend recommended this place to me, and I was excited ... needless to say, I was terribly disappointed and will most definitely not be back.
The food, ambiance and our server Amanda was amazing. We were on a staycation and just happened to find this gem. We plan on going back and spreading the word!
Amazing entrees and small plates. Amanda our waitress was amazing as well gave great suggestions on drinks and food choices. The Brussels Spouts are incredible. One if the best meals I’ve had in San Diego.
Our waiter was horrible. We were seated in the farthest corner of the restaurant even though people were seated around everyone else (and there were seats clearly visible to the rest of the restaurant). We had to ASK our waiter if we could order a bread appetizer or something to which he followed and said “oh! Bread is complimentary”. He would then disappear for long periods of time.
Loved this place. First time here when we were going to the theatre, it was within walking distance and the food was delicious.
