My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day and there was only a small menu to choose from, and when the food arrived it wasn’t very good and kind of weird. The meal was small and not much to eat so it wasn’t very filling.

The food was good but not good enough to justify the price. The service was excellent. The 4% surcharge was irritating because it make it obvious that they do not want to pay their help a living wage. The corporation could either take the his on the California mandatory wage increase and raise their prices. The 4% surcharge is rude and demeaning to their staff. I will not go their again.

We sat outdoors and it is a beautiful setting. Fire feature and heaters and we were very comfortable. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The place was practically empty on a Wednesday evening.

We had reservations outside, but it was cold that night and the the hostess offered to put our party of 6 in a private dining room, making it all the more exceptional. All the food was great. Wine list is very extensive with some good finds.

We have even that 2027 times before and especially enjoy breakfast. This time of salads are great and the entrees were a little below-par, feeling more like a conference meal than a special occasion. I had the featured steak and the sauce was over sweet and the meat felt a bit overcooked. My wife Seabass was also overcooked

Service started out wonderful but about halfway through the meal our waiter just quit coming around. My first refill of my soda was even before I had finished the first but then I never was offered another refill. When we finished our meal it took forever for him to bring the dessert menu and then even longer for him to come back to take our order. It took so long we declined dessert even though we were going to order one.

Even though I mentioned it was my friends’ birthday to the server as we sat down, dessert was not ever offered, just the bill came to the table when we finished our meal. The new menu was so small. I definitely won’t return.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego county. Between the truly excellent location, weather, ambiance, service, drinks and food, the 20/Twenty really shines. The location is close to the beach with an excellent sunset view. The weather is nearly always great for patio dining, where they have plenty of heaters and beautiful fire fixture. The service staff is kind, well trained and synchronized. Each item that we tried from the menu was outstanding including drinks through desserts. Their seafood, steaks and vegetables are all seasoned perfectly. The scene is quite romantic for a date and contemporary enough for a celebration. The price is quite high, but it does reflect the ingredients, craftsmanship and service.

We tried this restaurant for lunch and found the menu somewhat limiting and not so very exciting. We ended our meal with a dessert recommended by our server "napoleon" and it was anything but a traditional napoleon, we took one bite and just left it. The ambiance is lovely especially if you are sitting outside ...

I've been here a number of times with varied experiences. Lovely room, great views, sometimes great service but often times lackluster for being a five star resort. Asked for a booth away from service areas for a business meeting. Got a high top table near the kitchen . . . asked for another. Got a nice booth, no silverware. First waiter brought water . . . then no wait person. Asked for hot tea . . . got a cup of hot water and a teabag, no plate, no spoon, no hot water pot. Asked for silverware, a spoon and more hot water. Ordered an omelette, without ham or bacon . . . was charged $3. more for a special order ($19. for an omelette with potatoes), charged for coffee . . . didn't order coffee. Bill came with lots of issues and incorrect items charged. Sweet waitress finally reconciled the errors but shouldn't have happened in the first place. Food ....omelette was overcooked, sausage looked like cut up chicken meat in the omelette and was white like a processed meat substitute. Other order was Lox and a bagel . . . and was fine, no cooking involved. Not a stellar performance. I keep going back hoping it will be better. Sometimes it is but it is always unpredictable and certainly wasn't the impression I wanted to make for a business meal on a Sunday. Really love the site so I keep hoping!

Our breakfast entrees were good but not spectacular. My french toast was a little bit dry , but the bacon was very good. My husband's prime rib hash was a little too greasy and had some very fatty pieces of meat. The coffee and OJ were fine, but not outstanding. The fresh fruit plate, shrimp(prawns)cocktail and bagel and lox were truly the shining stars of our meal...delicious! Overall we felt the offerings were a bit pricey. Our service was very good; hostess and waitress were kind, friendly, and helpful. The outside patio was lovely with a wonderful ocean breeze and plenty of nice shade.
