Our waitress was a little slow, but we made it in time to pick up our tickets at Will Call, and into our seats on time. One of our guests complained that we had to pay $3 for bread. The beet salad was terrific, clam chowder was very tasty and the spicy shrimp appetizer was very good. One person in our party ordered the heirloom tomato salad, that looked amazing, and there was nothing left on her plate!

Factor in extra time and plan on going someplace in the village. While it is conveniently located next to theater, the food quality (we had sushi) was much more on par with campus food (the restaurant is on UCSD's campus). Perhaps some of their other types of fare are better. They do have a nice interior and the drinks are decent.

The person that checked us in made it a bit awkward because he couldnt find our reservation that we booked on open table. So he went back and fourth with me stating he didn't see a reservation under my name. Very awkward especially since he had plenty of empty tables. I had to look my reservations up on line and show him then he gave us a table.

It is always a good place to have dinner, but this time it was really exceptionally good. All of our dinner, two appetizers and two entrees were excellent. One of the best meals we have had in San Diego for a long time.

Not much taste to the scallops. The lemon sushi roll was good. The server was aware that we were going to the La Jolla Playhouse so she geared the timing of the service, which was appreciated.

Selections for gluten-free are few. Our server was good, helpful. But so expensive! Our creme brulee was stone cold, and had no hard sugar crust, a real disapointment. Entrees were just ok.

Wine list is marginal, with excuses about its limitations that management is not open to input, and re cost. I know of many wines that are much better at even lower cost. Also excuses why they can't serve expresso - all weak. Without the Playhouse Idoubt the restaurant could compete and survive.

Ordered drinks and then other tables came in and I noticed they were served drinks first. Saw mine sitting up at bar for a long time. Eventually went and got them and served myself. A filet mignon was ordered medium and came out rare to raw. Also, scallops and shrimp dish was ordered and scallops undercooked. ambiance was more like the college cafeteria and bathrooms outside were definitely like a college campus bathrooms at a public park. Much better places to dine in San Diego.
