When it first opened in 2009, Prepkitchen La Jolla was the first in what would become a string of casual, farm-to-table style restaurants from the minds behind Whisknladle restaurant in La Jolla. Inspired by cooks for cooks, Prepkitchen serves artisanal, farm-to-table cuisine at an everyday-eats price at all three of its locations - La Jolla, Del Mar & in San Diego’s historic Little Italy.

Guests will enjoy a casual, intimate dining experience whether seated inside Prepkitchen’s quaint dining room or outside under a covered, candlelit patio. Prepkitchen serves lunch and dinner daily, as well as breakfast and brunch menus on the weekend, which includes happy hour priced mimosas

We were seated in the covered patio and there was a foursome nearby that were so loud that we couldn't hear each other speak unless it was in each other's ears. Another couple near us said they were having trouble as well. Our dinner was not enjoyable at all. We know all about those two couple's lives, though. I mentioned this to the server and he just smiled understandingly. However, I think when other people's dinner's are disrupted, management should come and ask them to tone the noise level down. I don't understand how people could be so inconsiderate. This was our worst experience at any PrepKitchen location ever.

We ate there, 3 times last year, early 2017 and had a fantastic experience each time. However this year, January, 2018, our experience left us unsatisfied. The daily special, sea bass, was underwhelming. And, unlike our past experiences, there were no special, one-bite-each, surprises from the kitchen. Generally, everything was lacking any excitement. We'll try them again, and I hope the next time will be a little more creative.

Great locals spot for consistently good food and service. We had the fish tacos & cauliflower dish, both of which were very good.

Love the food and the quaint atmosphere!! We will go back when we visit San Diego again. It was so good and service was great. The waiter gave us our dessert for free because he said that he thought our dinner took to long to come out!!!

Not enough Vegetarian Options - they need to offer at least a Veggie Burger
