The place was very nice and the service was great. I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while and I wasn’t disappointed! The mimosas were delicious and so was the food!
Our server was super kind and funny, cocktails were delightful!
Just fun, great service, tasty meal, portions a little small and a bit pricy. Very special time there. Cant beat the atmosphere. Did Thanksgiving there with two sons.
Thanksgiving dinner was excellent!
We had a wonderful time! Food was delicious and staff was great. We will definitely be back :)
On the page it says kids eat free all October. We were there last Thursday we are dinner at hope 46 and they did charged us for the kids dinner !!
This is a fun place to grab a burger. You feel like your are in Palm Springs in the 50’s. Food was ok, the menu is is pretty limited because of COVID. The cocktail menu is a lot of fun. The blood orange margarita was yummy!
The service was the worst. It’ didn’t seem busy to justify such a frazzled waiter. There was a manager just walking around that didn’t seem to acknowledge the lack of service to allllllll tables. It was during a heatwave and we waited 20 min just to get served water. Food was blah. Won’t be returning.
What a great alternative in a crazy times. Plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the pool and they take reservations. Stress free dining in stressful times. And the server was great too.
This was one of my favorite brunch spots but they stopped serving bottomless mimosas on Saturday’s so I probably won’t be going back.
Had read about HOPE 46 in the UT and so decided to go there after the Aztec MBB game Saturday. Though we had reservations the place had many seats. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We both had one of their flatbreads and we both took half home, because the serving was so large.
HOPE 46 is a favorite of our family. We have hosted brunch on various holidays (Christmas, Mother's Day) as well as when visitors come to town. The setting is pure SoCal - well-pruned palm trees, classic rectangle pool with sunning chairs, a shady patio, rust-colored sun shades. The food is always delicious and the drinks are, too. We will be coming back again and again and continue to celebrate and host here.
We went for the Valentines Day special & it was a really fun time! Our server was great & food was delicious. The whole experience was amazing, thanks so much!
Visited for dinner with three of my girlfriends. We each got different plates and loved every one of them. We ended going back for breakfast the next morning and loved all of our breakfasts as well. Super cute restaurant. Great service.
We love this place. I don't know why we don't go more often. Good food..variety of beer and other drinks. Good place for lunch by the pool, as well.
Pretty food, just didn't taste as good as it looked. Lacking in flavors and imagination. Chef must be home for Christmas
Food was mediocre.
The restaurant did not have our reservation even though I had a confirmation #. Then the Server seemed a bit put out that he had to set up our table. When two of our orders came with wheat toast instead of sourdough as ordered, he told us the cook said it was sourdough and did nothing about it. There was a nice female server that helped us out and got our orders corrected.
I had brunch on a sunday, the menu is really good, aaannnddd bottomless mimosas!!! I recommend lounging by the pool after and making a day out of it.
I took a friend to breakfast for their Birthday. It was very nice, but since they were understaffed the waiter was not very responsive. He apologized at the end of our meal.
It wasn't clear from the website that the restaurant was in the Lafayette Hotel. Once we found it, we enjoyed eating outside at the pool. The waiter was great and we enjoyed chatting with others sitting outside. Food was fine. Prices were a little high.
Booked table at 8:45 through Open Table. Arrived and told that they no longer used open table and were surprised to hear that I was able to make a booking. Also told that they closed at 9PM. We were rushed through dinner. Server was apologetic about having to bring appetizers and entrees at same time. Check brought to us shortly after receiving our entrees. Message seemed to be " Get out". Not the servers fault. Most likely following directions by manager who wanted to close up and get staff off the clock. Food was fine but there is no need to go out of your way to visit this restaurant.
Took my mom for Mother's Day brunch along with my daughter. Beautiful venue, awesome food! We will be back!
We were staying at the Lafayette Hotel for 2 nights and made 7:30 pm reservations for a Wed. night on my husband's birthday. There were only two other couples in the entire restaurant! But the food was delicious and the barista/waitress was fantastic. We enjoyed our stay and the dinner meals were delicious! Thank you!
Had Sunday brunch. Food was very good, place is a bit small but they have a nice terrace overlooking the hotel pool.
Hope 46 was a PERFECT option for brunch to visit with visiting family. I was having difficulty finding a restaurant for Sunday brunch that took reservations. My cousin was staying at The Lafayette for a conference. Food was great with multiple options to fit all appetites, they had a set table ready for us on arrival. Will come again!
Pleasant and comfortable. It is off the lobby of the Lafayette Hotel, which doesn't have singage outside for the restaurant.
Quite a pleasant little place, once you find it. It is conveniently located, but the signage for the hotel in which it is located overpowers anything for the restaurant. It is a peaceful oasis that is worth finding.
The waitress did not have good customer service, she was bland and sort of rude to our party from the very beginning. The food was ok, a bit under seasoned and a bit overpriced. The setting was nice, by the pool, if the weather was better it would've been perfect. The elevator music that was softly playing made the setting extremely boring, considering it was my 21st birthday brunch, I wish the music could've been more upbeat and louder.
The food was great, the service was excellent, and the cocktails were expertly mixed!
Hope 46 is a lovely restaurant especially considering the fact that it is part of Lafayette Hotel, so ideal for guests. The food was great with generous portions and cooked to a high standard. We sat in the restaurant’s outdoor seating which overlooked the pool and palm trees. It can be quite noisy due to people in the pool and surrounding hotel rooms however, the atmosphere is pleasant. Overall, I definitely recommend this restaurant if you’re ever staying in the hotel or near this area in San Diego!
Great for pre-improv show. Food very good, service friendly and attentive, good value & fun locale.
Came here for thanksgiving dinnner as their website didn’t say prefixed menu only. My husband went to sit down on his chair and another server had left a dirty tray on his seat. The food wasn’t even warm and manager who abruptly sat us didn’t even come by after bad experience ( our first time ever here )- so we dropped $150 and left underwhelmed other than the cocktails. They weren’t even very busy at all!
This place was a very pleasant surprise - great food at great prices and a really nice atmosphere. Even better, there was no wait for Saturday brunch at a time when other places had up to an hour wait. Highly recommended!
Beautiful locations inside La Fayette Hotel (another gem) and amazing food! Loved LOVED my breakfast sandwich (it was HUGE) and the Lamb Lollipops! Yum!
Delicious food and a great view of the pool! We brought the kids, who had big portions for $5, and enjoyed a Bloody Mary and a big brunch. Will definitely go try dinner next time.
Eaten at your fine establishment three times in last six weeks -- It would have been more but I was away for three of the weeks. I have lived two blocks down Mississippi St for 28 years, and am so happy that we now have a 'quality' restaurant bar within immediate walking distance. Thank you.
Our third time here after discovering this hidden gem in the neighborhood. Food is really good
and the funky location is great for people watching.
Brussels and Spice shrimp ... success
Great little place inside the Lafayette Hotel on El Cajon. Great menu with vegetarian options,
nice wines by the glass and tables with a view of the pool.
