Waiter could have been a little more attentive on keeping the water glasses full. I was surprised at how much we enjoyed it overall.

It was so good we ordered the same items and enjoyed them just as much. Excellent service on both visits, food is well-executed and the flavor combinations are imaginative without being over the top. Even the coffee is good - and that says a lot about the restaurant. Looking forward to another meal there soon.

We were concerned that a hotel restaurant would not be the best food experience, but we were delightfully surprised. The fish entrees - both salmon and seabass were cooked perfectly and were very tasty. As were the salads and desserts.

We had to ask three times for drinks, our food took over 20 minutes and was cold when served. Then, the server never returned to ask how our meal was or even to deliver our check. We had to ask the manager for our check and never saw our server again. Horrible service, and we will not return. Get your act together, Pinzimini.

Service was sparce, bread came late and was old and turning hard. The food is better at any coffee shop and the prices were ridiculous for what we were given. $50 for two tasteless salads and a no name glass of wine. Will not recommend this place - will not go back.

Their idea of a Caesar salad includes filleted anchovies tucked away under the leaves of salad waiting to glare at you as you eat the leaves. What a disgusting idea not mentioned on the menu or by the waitstaff beforehand! didn't wait long enough for me to be able to respond and tell her how awful things were because they were so horribly understaffed she was always in a hurry. They accidentally delivered a neighboring table's meal to us telling us that it was a kids pasta until we discovered that included shrimp... my child is allergic to shellfish. Awful experience and when I complained about how mediocre the food was all I got was an apathetic "sorry".

Ice Tea was brought without any sugar or sweeteners, had to flag someone down, but then the glass was never less than 1/2 full as refills were spot on. Condiments were served in small dishes with small silver spoons, which was a really nice touch over putting bottles on the table. Very nice lunch, made well and served up quickly, which is always appreciated by folks with limited time at lunch.

It is also close to Spreckles, and is actually attached to Horton Plaza. The restaurant is an easy walk from the Civic Center trolley station. The food was good, and the service was excellent. We were there on a week night, and had no trouble being seated and being served in plenty of time for us to attend our show. The staff was considerate and helpful. We will probably eat here in the future, especially if we are attending a nearby theatre

I was hoping for more from a trained chef. I had the short rib. The seasoning was fine but the dish was overcooked making it difficult to swallow with out water..We ordered 1 coffee $5.00, this is the MOST EXPENSIVE cup of coffee in San Diego. There are better choices available.

The service and ambiance was very good. Very clean and comfortable. Just too bad the food wasn't anything special to want to come back for.
