A timeless, sought-after dining escape, celebrated Chef Brian Malarkey opened Herb & Wood to instant acclaim over four years ago. In that time, the restaurant has become an icon, a dining destination that has helped to propel San Diego's culinary reputation to new heights. By focusing on rustic, wood-fired dishes, Chef Malarkey's menu elevates humble ingredients such as carrots, beets, and chicken, incorporating Mediterranean flavors and a California ethos of seasonality and sustainability.

The Mediterranean flavors just make traditional avocado toast and eggs Benedict so much more flavorful. We enjoyed the patio and our server was great. Bloody Mary’s are full flavored, heavy on the horseradish, and very fresh ingredients.

Food was all incredible. From the apps, duck, roasted oysters and bone marrow, beet and strawberry, hamachi, to the Tomahawk Pork Chops, all very very good. Not cheap but worth it. Service was sorely lacking, nobody bothered to check in to see how the food was after our entrees we're delivered. We were planning on ordering another round of cocktails or a bottle of wine but since nobody checked in on us until we were 95% finished with our entrees we did not bother

The only thing I would say with the beet salad is it would have been nice if it had a whipped goat cheese or feta but everything was great!

Too loud. We were seated in a corner where table was placed behind a couch where the person on the couch had the back to us. Every time they leaned back their hair was in our table space. We had to constantly look out her get hair not to get in our food. It was very crowded. Our waiter was amazing.

When our food arrived it was cold (the plates were even cold) and inedible. The staff was apologetic but that did not make up for what was ultimately a disaster of a dining experience. Given all the great reviews we were anticipating something significantly better.

The oysters and bone marrow were the best. Cauliflower vegetable side dish was amazing. All of the entrees were super delicious. We had the Pork Secreto, branzino, and venison. The pork was the best and the branzino was good but overrated a bit. We came to celebrate a birthday and would definitely come back.

We ordered the butter lettuce, and beet and strawberry salads as appetizers. We enjoyed the marinated hanger and chicken as mains. The drinks ordered ( wine and old fashioned) were mediocre at best and a bit disappointing. As we were early we waited for our table and enjoyed the ambiance. However when seated for dinner itself the noise was so overwhelming that it was impossible to have a conversation.
