Great Maple San Diego
Outdoor dining, counter bar, food bar, and full room dining. Cocktail cart for special cocktails and tostas delivered on a 7 foot board. Cheers
Great place for brunch. Recommending to make reservations, it does get busy
Completely world class. Just go.
The menu is diverse and the worst problem is deciding what not to get this time. The wine list is not huge, but is well focused with excellent pairings for any meal at a variety of price points. Service was outstanding, and our server struck a great balance with coming by and checking at the right times and just often enough.
Our experience was okay for such a well known staple.
The waitress was nice but service was poor. She forgot to bring out my drink. She used terms of endearment which made me a little uncomfortable. She didn’t mention my friends order could choose the sides so she got whatever was given. Also I made a reservation days in advance and I still had to wait for my table.
I had the BLT sandwich which was served on flimsy focaccia bread, which resulted in the sandwich falling apart the moment I picked it up. So, which the components of the sandwich were very tasty, I had to eat the components with a knife and fork. The french fries were very good Hot and crisp
A little disappointed this time. Our portabella starter arrived AFTER our entre.
We went for brunch. We had the beignets, squash blossom popover and breakfast pot pie!! All were delicious! Highly recommend this place and this location!!
The line was super long but we had a reservation so it only took about 10 min to get a table. The waitress took our orders quickly and the food showed up in no time. 10/10 would recommend!
Dined here during Friday lunch and the service and food were exceptional. We ordered their Chilaquiles, deviled eggs, maple bacon, brisket plate and their grass fed burger with truffle fries. Everything was perfect! We will be returning for dinner service in the near future.
The food was excellent! Visual presentation matched taste and quality. Since moving here 2 years ago, my husband and I have never had a bad experience coming here for a meal.
Really loud - but great food
The food was so delicious! You have to try the Maple Bacon Donuts—they are homemade and to die for. The severs are always personable and attentive.
Great food and great staff. We always enjoy our food and ambiance and service at Great Maple in San Diego.
Rough Start But a Bacon Finish!
Waited for more than 10 minutes for menus and a greeting BUT our server more than made up for it after apologizing. The food was crazy crazy in terms of the flavors and presentation. Our maple bacon donuts were under cooked but we still ate the glaze and bacon around the plate. Will go back. A bit pricey but unique.
Bit of a wait even with reservations but as always, the food was spectacular and service was good despite it being very busy! I'll keep coming back for sure!
Always a delightful time, and both the standard menu items and seasonal specials are worthwhile.
We don’t live in San Diego, so we rarely get to go. But when we are in San Diego, I’ll schedule my whole day around going to Great Maple! The food never disappoints, and the service is always great. If I could eat the bacon maple donuts every day, I would...
We love it there. Service was a little slow this particular night but the waitress must have had a few too many tables - drinks came out way after appetizers. Forgivable because everything else is so great.
As always the Great Maple was outstanding! I have never had a bad meal here, and I highly recommend this restaurant! The popovers are my favorite, but really anything is good. Of course, if you are a first timer, you have to try the maple bacon donuts, they really are amazing!
Notre meilleur repas à San Diego ! Nourriture de qualité.
Love this place. It has outstanding food. Be sure to make reservations for breakfast and lunch!
Once again, excellent service and a great menu. The Barramundi plate was very well balanced, the cherry tomatoes added just the right acidity. While the fish was well seasoned it was a little overcooked and some parts tended to mushy. Must say, this was the only occasion of any criticism of the cooking.
Excellent service and good food.
Everything was amazing except for waiting an additional 30 minutes after our confirmed reservation time.
Made a reservation. The staff made us wait for 45 minutes additional. Why walk ins were be taken prior to a reservation made weeks in advance is beyond me.
The restaurant was incredibly crowded, which is normal for a Sunday, but because they had the patio shut down for a private event, need the rest of restaurant that much more busy. Even though I planned ahead and made a reservation for 12 p.m., they were not able to seat us until 12:35 p.m. we didn't receive service right away, and then it took forever for my drink to arrive. Our poor server did the best she could, but service was really slow. The food is always really great here, but it is a little bit expensive in my opinion. 100% recommend making a reservation!
Long wait even with a reservation.
Always delicious whenever we come here. The portions of food are BEYOND ample.
Simple food prepared in an unsimple way! Delicious and great ambiance.
Our waitress was great and the restaurant was clean overall. Unfortunately the food was just ok and for the price I would have thought it would have been better. One out of four of us were satisfied with our meal. It’s a cool spot, but probably won’t go back.
Food was good, service good, don’t really have any complaints, I would definitely return.
THIS IS ONLY FOR VALENTINES PRIX FIXE:
$260 got 2 people 1 "amuse bouche" appetizer (4 pieces of cheese about the size of a quarter or smaller and some bread/crisps), appetizer, entree, small dessert. I had the beet and goat cheese salad for an appetizer and vegan carrot curry for entree, my friend had lobster bisque for appetizer and soy soaked sea bass for entree, we both had cheesecake for dessert. We also had 5 drinks between us, 4 margaritas and 1 espresso martini. The food was meh, the margaritas were sweet, not strong, and it just felt like a crazy amount of money for the quality for eating at a diner. it's a diner, not fine dining. I've never been during normal hours or not on a holiday- I might try it but the quality of food for the price really turned me off of this place.
Valentine’s menu never fails.
Awesome food all the time! Love the ambiance, enjoy people watching and seeing what others are eating. Bacon donut is a must have. Kale salad like no other.
It’s often busy, but the servers are always attentive and so great job.
Coffee is excellent as well.
Love the atmosphere food and ambiance ! Will come back next time I’m in California
Fantastic food and good service. Very loud place. Make sure you have reservations before you go.
I love that you can make a reservation. I met friends here on a Sunday morning and had forgotten that the Hillcrest Farmer's Market was going on. Thankfully I had made a reservation and we were seated promptly. Everything I have had is delicious. I love the scrambles. My friend had has with chimicurri. It was great. The star of the meal of course were the maple bacon donuts. I live for these. They are warm and sweet with saltiness added from the bacon.
I was not impressed .
The food lacked a lot of flavor & it’s more presentation than anything .
The plates look very tasty but they are not !
I had a Smoked Brisket hash ...
The Brisket was cold , fried kale had a sauce that had no taste , the potatoes were good .
The beignets were good , but nothing extraordinary.
My son had chilaquiles , they were mushy .
We had coffee and didn’t like it .
The apple juice was very good .
The place was busy , so the service was poor .
I would not go back and I won’t recommend this place at all .
Always great service!
