My main came out while I was still eating my salad. The server just kind of shrugged and placed it on the table. The restaurant was not particularly busy but I felt as if they wanted me out as quickly as possible. Not a fun evening.
Food was wonderful. Waiter was very helpful and attentive. Decor is really pretty and Romantic. Will go back soon!
Great restaurant, the food was really good and the decor is worth the visit. The food was delicious at an upscale price. Like many restaurants the noise level made it difficult to have conversations, so probably best with small groups so you can stay close and keep everyone involved in the conversation.
Love, love, LOVE!
The restaurant was amazing, so gorgeous inside! Service was friendly & quick. Food was absolutely delicious. I had the Maple Glazed Pork Belly Benedict with a blueberry-pineapple mimosa. So yum. Everyone in my party enjoyed their food and the atmosphere!
This was our 2nd visit and loved it as much as the first! Had the Iberico Pork dish this time and it was probably one of the best dishes I've ever had (and I'm from Chicago!)
Everything here is top notch - food, ambiance, service - you won't be disappointed.
You can't go wrong, regardless of what you order... but I highly recommend you get the gnocchi. It's the best in the world :)
The facility is very nice and well decorated. The staff was friendly and did their jobs well. The food was all quite expensive but tasty. My biggest complaint was the volume. This restaurant was very loud and made it nearly impossible to have a normal conversation with my wife across the table. Otherwise it was a good experience.
Great decor, extremely noisy and we could barely hear each other speak. Food was mediocre and over priced. Beet salad was under cooked with no taste. Bar crowd pushed up right against our table. Sorry not a fan, though server was great!
Food was amazing - cocktails were amazing - cool vibe but way too loud - cannot have a conversation. And could barely hear the waitress explain menu and specials - service was good but did feel a little rushed I’d recommend but be warned of noise level for sure
We both felt the entre meals were overpriced. Our appetizer was delicious as was both vegetable sides. We both ordered the $58 steak and what a disappointment! Lots of fat and my husband’s steak was really tough. We were both anticipating the peppercorn sauce and you could not taste it at all on his steak and only on a couple of bites on mine. We’ve experienced some outstanding steaks at various restaurants in San Diego but these were certainly not one of them. We did mention this to server and he offered to have the chef prepare another steak but by the time he checked back with us my husband didn’t want me to have to wait and it wasn’t that great of a steak anyway. He did bring us a complimentary desert.
A+ food, ambiance and service. Loved it!
The food and service was great. Our fish and pasta dishes were perfectly prepared; the octopus appetizer was tasty and the right size. The service was attentive without being overbearing.
It is expensive but worth it for a special occasion.
We had an early dinner and by the time we left at 7:15 the restaurant was about half full and starting to get noisy. Lots of right angles and no noise deadening makes us concerned about noise when the place is full.
The address is Kettner but the entrance is on Ivy. There is no signage on Kettner and no arrows pointing the way. When we left others were trying to figure out where to go. Very annoying, and there are simple fixes.
Very pleasant experience.
The Hostess was very nice and polite.
The Waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. Happy to help with any question.
Food was also great 10/10
Birthday. Loved the food ambience. It was really great. Noise level could be lower so we could talk without yelling
The branzino was amazing!!!!!
We had a reservation at 1:45 and got caught in traffic, so we called the restaurant to let them know. The gentleman that answered was very understanding and nice. He said that there was no problem and that they would hold the reservation for us. We got there at 2:00, a lady said that the kitchen was closed and that they could not serve us. I explained what had happened and she was extremely rude and giving me an attitude. I said, that we had called and that they were going to take us in. The lady said that she could not control the kitchen and that they would not seat us. I kept pressing the fact that they told us it was ok and she continued to be very rude. Finally the manager came down and sat us for brunch. I love Herb and Wood, but i really thunk employees have to be smart and treat every single client with respect and priority.
Thank you I probably wont be going back.
Fantastic food, cocktails, and ambience. great service. It is a little expensive but at least you get what you pay for. you wont leave disappointed.
The service was phenomenal, the restaurant is beautiful and every single bite of out food was amazing !!!! I would go back at anytime and would recommend it to everyone !
Highly recommend the crab or the pork belly benedict’s
So good! Ambiance is fantastic and the food so delicious. Our server, Victoria, was spot-on with recommendations and she took great care of us. The oxtail gnocchi was amazing!
Our bill was around $88, and to be very honest I have been in restaurants with better value for that price range.
Also, because the bar is not separated from the restaurant, it was very noisy and my wife couldn't hear me from the other side of the table.
We had a great server, and the Duck and the Oxtail Gnocchi were fantastic. Love this place!
We enjoyed Jeremy’s service very much. Loved our table right by the fireplace. 💗
Ambience was great but food was not! The duck was not good, very bland. The ribeye was also average. The Baked Alaska Dessert was not good either!
The food was delicious and the service was top notch. Good portion sizes for the price. Definitely one of the best restaurants in San Diego. Would definitely come back as well.
Wonderful dinner and excellent service!!! We will definitely return and tell others to dine there.
Love it : )
Our server, I can’t remember her name was amazing. All her recommendations were perfect from drink to dessert
First we ordered the chicken liver toast and the beets salad. The chicken liver had a generous amount garnish. I was intrigued and wanted to explore more of the food menu. Next we continued our courses with the ox tail gnocchi that was wonderful. Enjoy !!
Disappointed. The the oxtail and brócoli were salty, and the lamb over cooked. Service was great, but the ambience resembles more a casual bar with high intense music than a high-end restaurant. The oxtail was so salty, that I couldn’t eat it.
Valentines meal. Very good; will be back!
Food was fantastic and delicious. Service was also outstanding. Can't wait to go back.
This is my favorite special occasion spot in San Diego. I love the decor and ambiance. The food is outstanding and the staff do an awesome job with service. Sitting at the bar is the way to go- the bartenders are great!!
