No value, poor food quality, too much hype for nothing...

Service was outstanding, they really went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome and comfortable. The manager came by to chat and there were two servers that kept checking in with us.

Food was very good and clearly was carefully prepared. I wouldn’t say the mains were outstanding or innovative. The duck, the miso cod, both prepared very well but not remarkable considering the price and the expectations the restaurant seems to set for itself.

The beet and citrus salad was great, and the tuna tartare was probably the most interesting thing we had. I would return to sit at the bar for a cocktail and the tuna tartare but probably wouldn’t stay for dinner next time. I would rather save my money for a trip to Chez Panisse for some truly remarkable market-themed food.

A nice variety of food choices, from starters to entree's. Portions are what you'd expect at a French have a starter because your dinner will not satiate a hungry appetite.
Wonderful selection of Sommelier choice wines that you won't find in many's fun to try something new from another country.
No surprise, the hamburgler did not enjoy his dinner, the Prime beef short ribs, so my husband traded his skirt steak and they were both happy. I enjoyed the lamb, though, I preferred to eat it without the sauce. I tried the sweet pea salad, the domestic prosciutto was delicious. I think our server, Matt, said it was from Tennesee and they called it Tennesciutto, lol.
Matt was fun and knew how to describe the food, how it was prepared and what to expect. Overall, the service was good...I poured my own wine, twice, but our water was never empty.
We've eaten out a lot and this was definitely one of the most expensive dinners we've had...all the while not ordering anything more or less than we normally do.

Excellent experience from valet, to hostesses, to the team of servers at our table. We had a few questions about meeting items that were answered perfectly. Special shout out to the primary server arranging the bottle of Fonseca '77 to be presented at our table after we ordered a glass!

Excellent food, excellent service (attentive but never intrusive). We had a terrific meal, and everyone kept wishing us Happy Anniversary! I wish we'd have known that they would give us an anniversary dessert; we wouldn't have ordered dessert. But that's not much of a complaint. We had a wonderful time.

Phenomenal. Truly the best restaurant in San Diego right now. Elevated dining with great service and no pretension.

We went there recently to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. We were greeted by the manager with congratulations and a nice card! Food was good but our server did not tell us about that night’s specials. After we ordered we overheard another table being told the specials, steak and lobster. That was the kind of meal I was wanting and would have ordered if I had known but instead I had to settle for chicken. We were told that we couldn’t order sushi in the dinning room by our server but the table next to us (different server) ordered sashimi??? Also at the end the server asked us if we wanted dessert so we ordered the carrot cake. After we ordered our dessert we were given a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. It would have been nice to know that the complimentary one was coming before we ordered. Presentation was excellent and the food quality was high. For the price the tables are too close together and we felt we couldn’t have a private conversation (similar to the Cheesecake Factory). Sadly it could have been so much better if our service would have been good.
