We are locals and had not been here yet. We usually go to Bob’s or a few other upscale places in the area. We went for dinner and ordered a couple of the sea food options. They just didn’t seem fresh and for the price it was a disappointment.

Excellent food and service. Generous portions that could be shared by a couple. Outside and inside dining, open and lots of spacing. Great experience.

Food was outstanding, great quality, but the prices asked were a bit steep for the quality of the food produced.

Server was ok, but would expect a great deal more from this tier of restaurant. Only learned about an amazing sounding chef's special of the night after order had been placed overhearing it from another table. Broke off part of the wine bottle cork in the bottle. Slower, lax service, kinda underwhelming.

Good food if you've got extra cash to blow but there are better quality/values in the area for the price point, I wouldn't recommend this for date night for locals.

The food pictures in the OpenTable are faked! Their food menu is very simple . Don’t have the food that on the picture. I go there is because l see the picture of food under OpenTable website. And the waiters told me they didn’t responsible for the pictures in the social network. So please OpenTable take off these faked pictures of the food . At least is not up to date pictures.it will mislead the customers.

We went for Christmas dinner. Service a little slow and reservation was late. Our server was good, but overall the price for the food and minimalist quantity was not worth the value received. They did make a great martini!

Went here for Christmas dinner. The staff was completely overwhelmed. It took 45 minutes for the waiter to take our order and another hour to get our food. Food was good but not worth the wait. Perhaps it’s ok on a regular night but I would not recommend coming here on a special day.

The dinner engagement at 20/twenty on Dec 10 was exceptional. The food was well prepared and the wine selection was abundant. To add to a pleasant evening was our server, Maria. She was so cordial and went out of her way to make our meal experience delightful. The service provided by her was quick, even though the restaurant was quite full. She ended our evening by providing my wife and I with a memorable ending to our special evening. We would certainly recommend 20/twenty to anyone wishing to enjoy a special dining experience.

A delightful surprise. Best in our Coronado and San Diego visit so far. Erica was great; she greeted, seated and served us. Very friendly and helpful. Had a nice quiet and private seat. A lot of individual diners doing work. Nice and warm inside. Food was top-notch and perfect for us. Excellent lobster risotto to share. Butternut Squash soup. Beets & Burrata salad (with excellent Candy Stripe and orange beets and orange chunks). Striped Bass. Great Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Coconut Gelato (we live in Hawaii on Maui). Pot of Earl Grey tea with honey. A lovely evening. The huge Christmas tree in the lobby was a spectacular photo op.

Very spacious and beautiful setting, but that’s about it. We felt the food is severely overpriced. For example, a $14 Caesar Salad had no green, leafy pieces (just hard pieces) with almost no dressing (no taste). On top of that, there was no special services for birthday - we didn’t expect a free cake or anything, but there was absolutely nothing - why would anyone go there for celebration? In general, customers can feel they are focusing on cutting the cost; with the price range of entrees ($38-$55), customers should be able to relax instead of feeling their financial strategy. There were only two tables filled from 6pm to 8pm - it was Sunday night, but still it’s not a good sign. Maybe if they are more customer-oriented, more people would come to enjoy the beautiful ambience.

We had an amazing experience and found a new favorite restaurant. My husband had the filet mignon and it was the best steak he ever had- perfectly cooked by chef Elias. Our server, Scott, was great- professional and friendly with recommendations that we loved. We were celebrating our son's birthday and we were impressed with the quality of the kids meals too. We will definitely be back next time we crave steak and a great overall experience. The manager, Maddy, checked in on us and was very proactive to make sure we had a great experience.

The night started out great with our server Allie. We had a party of 7 and great food and cocktails. As we closed out we were finishing desert and my wanted a night cap. We asked Allie for drinks and since she was now off she said she would get someone to help us. This is when the night turned to crap. We got Scott, this guy is a piece of work. My daughter is 27 and the reason we were in Carlsbad was to celebrate her birthday as we live in Irvine and she and her boyfriend live in Encinitas. We look young and my daughter does as well, however, she provided her ID to Scott, even though we have been served cocktails all night and a hotel guest as well, so not trying to get drunk and drive around. Anyways, after reviewing ID, taking order Scott comes back to table and refuses to serve my daughter as he felt her ID was fake. This guy just took a great night and turned it into crap. We are her parents, she provided a valid State Issued California Drivers License and he was accusing her and us of a fake ID. I will never go back her again or the resort for that matter. I am a loyal Marriot Member, but this was the icing on the cake and quite honestly ruined our entire time here at the resort. The remaining 2 days of our trip we ate offsite in Carlsbad Village, wasn't going to give the resort another dime. Treat your customers with respect. Thanks

The food was definitely over priced and boring. Bland and not creative. Service was not accommodating and unwilling to make and substitutions. Too much sugar in their vegetables and no healthy options.

Love this app so that we were able to make a key reservation. Thank you Open Table bc we got to enjoy this restaurant on multiple occasions

Breakfast - reservation for us in faster, we were told of the wait for food, but it was understood that they were understaffed and everyone was bustling!
This is where unhappy hangry guests write poor reviews to speak poorly of the restaurant.

For us, we received our meal, our beverages and had enjoyable conversation with Michael our server

Dinner - CONSISTENT! Truly enjoyed the multiple meals during our visit and happy with the service. Not one person was unfriendly or unhelpful. We will dine again when we visit again.

Loved the fresh option ingredients and would highly recommend the scallops or the bass!

The drinks were AMAZING, hubs was happy with his paper plane, cheers and bravo to 20|twenty! We appreciate your attention to detail and hard work ethic!

The food was delicious, scallops cooked perfectly and the bass with risotto also very testy. Desserts also super nice.

We were there at 5pm on a Saturday but there was no where to get a drink before it opened at 5:30pm. When it finally opened the fire feature was broken and many lights were out. The kids menu was lacking options and the dinner menu was incredibly pricey for the quality of service. I had to ask for water 3 times before I was served. The value is just not there. Cocktails were great though.

We decided to make our last night a relaxing one and eat at 20Twenty and we were very happy we did! Our server was great and extremely attentive. It was off season and fairly slow, but regardless, it was a very nice evening. We both had the clam chowder, which was delicious and we split the boneless 14oz Ribeye with mac n cheese and mushrooms, accompanied with the chimichurri sauce. It was all well executed and came out nice and hot. The one thing I wish they would do is heat the share plates. We sat outside on a 60 degree night under the heaters and the food started to cool fairly quickly. Hot share plates would have been amazing! I had a couple glasses of the Daou Cab, which worked flawlessly. Overall, I were very pleased and would certainly visit again.

This restaurant had wonderful ambience. Our table was right beside the fire feature on the patio. The food was excellent and the service matched. While it was pricey, it was worth it. We have also eaten breakfast here twice and it continued to exceed our expectations!

The food at 20/Twenty is always delicious, We love the seafood and the vegetable preparation is excellent. The fire pit on the patio is beautiful and the staff are always very kind. The portions seem to continue to shrink is size though, while the prices remain very high making it difficult to justify value compared to cost.

Dinned here as a weekend getaway for Lego land, overall the food was good, as they offer a la cart and options friendly for kids. The chef didn't get our order right 3 times so that was a bummer...we asked for no goat cheese and he kept on putting goat cheese on our omlet...not sure why =( But we sat outside, and there are plenty of seating. You can see the ocean and feel the breeze in the morning which is nice. I would recommend to eat here because you can get it done and get started with day and pool!

Enjoyable but expensive. The food was delicious, portions about right. Ambience was great being quietly uncrowded outside, comfortably well warmed. Service was fine. Awarding 4stars instead of 5 was due to the stingy SDRW discount from standard menu.
