When for a Friday night date with the Bride. Food was very good
Good food, great service (Tiziana). We will definitely be back!
They accommodated a party of 12 outside for my friend's baby shower. They allowed us to take up extra space for presents. We brought in our own dessert and flowers. The all you can drink mimosas for Sunday brunch was well worth it! We stayed until 3pm without anyone pressuring us to leave. Our server was not all that great. She got 2 shirley temples with vodka for pregnant women when they ordered shirley temples. She was not attentive to beverage refills either.
We went for Sunday brunch. The staff was very attentive and awesome. The food was very good and so were the drinks.
Fabulous food. Fabulous servers. It was a Winner All-Around. Menu selections were Superb. Chef Rocks!
Easy, casual, neighborhood spot. Food was simple but good. Good drinks and decent wine list. We sat outside by the pool and it was relaxing and cool.
The food was wonderful. My Steak and hash browns were dome exactly as I prefer them. My mother also raved about her food.
The shrimp appetizer was delicious and the rest of the food was good and comforting.
6 of us had a blast at the valentine dinner/dance in the ballroom. The band was great, the food was mostly great, the service outstanding, and there was room to dance on the dance floor. My only wish is that there was a more robust AC system as it did feel a bit stuffy as the evening wore on - nothing a martini couldn't fix! And the jalepeno infused margariti did not have much of a kick to it, if any.
Both of our dishes were wonderful! My gnocchi was piping hot and delicious, with a generous amount of spinach.
My husband and I went to the Valentine's Day dinner event that was hosted. It was a great event! The music was awesome and I loved the live band. The food could've been a little better. It needed more flavor but the menu was really good. Overall the event was worth it especially the price for it. So worth it and memorable!
The staff were friendly. The Hotel has its own vibe. There's an outdoor chess board and checkerboard to play a game. That was cool! Great places to sit and hang out or play table games in the lobby area of the hotel. I loved it!! It was a nice surprise.
This restaurant is a great find. Intimate seating overlooking the Swim Club courtyard makes for a nice place to celebrate or simply dine. The American fare menu has something for every diet. Each dish has a flair that is sure to intrigue and that reflects the talent of the Chef and cook staff. The hospitality staff sat us down before our reservation and we were quickly looking over the menu. Everyone (of a group of 4) ordered something different and everyone enjoyed what they got. Fun to see the pictures of Bob Hope and other luminaries that used this as a stop over on their way to Rosarita, MX for films and fun in the 40s and 50s.
Funky/retro throw back to the Bob Hope - Road Trip era. Interesting menu and a number of good local beers on tap.
We went for the Thanksgiving dinner. When we drove by the address, we didn't realize it was inside the Lafayette Hotel. Looked like it'd be an adventure. We entered through the bar to a room set up with several tables. No table cloths or mats on the tables, kind of rustic-- the decor was of 40s and 50s music albums, 50s celebrities. But it looked clean and was fairly quiet. The view was of the inner courtyard of the hotel and the pool. The wait staff were nice but seemed a little inexperienced. We waited for about 10 minutes before we were offered anything to drink. We ordered sparkling wine and water. The wine came, we asked again for the water and it came then. Started off with quite good butternut squash soup and a green salad. Very nice. Our hopes were up. No bread was offered with the starters. I always think that's strange in a nice restaurant--a good bread would have really set off the soup and salad. Oh well. It was at least 20 minutes wait for the next course. The place began to fill up and there was a nice conversational buzz--the only music was in the bar, outside the dinner room. Again, background music, maybe of the kind hanging on the walls, would have set a nice ambiance. Oh well again. The food came. Quite disappointing. There were 3 thick , over-warmed slices of turkey breast (pretty obviously the frozen kind) with about 3 tablespoons of mashed potatoes, a dollop of gravy, a metal container of what seemed to be canned cranberry sauce and a portion of gluey "dressing". Oh, yes and FOUR green beans. It was all edible, but really, we could have had the same if we'd purchased a higher priced tv dinner. The desert was pumpkin pie (nothing special--again, seemed like a warmed up frozen version) and cheesecake. The cheesecake was frozen solid. We had been served small spoons for desert but needed to ask for a fork to chunk out the frozen cheesecake. We were not offered coffee but did request hot tea and were served as requested.
We tried this place nearby because of the historic renovation of a good piece of period architecture. Worthy, nice spot. The food was creative and well prepared. Wines were satisfactory to good. The atmosphere was casual, no table cloths, wood table surfaces, enclosed veranda viewing the pool court etc. Bar had folks hanging out with beer...fine. Building very nicely restored and presented. The location on El Cajon makes it an exploration. I would hope this becomes a nucleus of a resurgence in the area. I say "give it a try, interesting venue with good food."
Most breakfast places don't take reservations. Happily, Hope 46 does, and what a find!
Well prepared dishes with beautiful presentation. My wife and kids loved it and will come back again for brunch, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended!
