Named for Carlsbad's seven miles of coastline, 7 Mile Kitchen features wood-fired pizzas and gourmet burgers. Keeping in mind San Diego’s love for craft beers, 7 Mile features rotating taps of many of the local favorites. Dessert is a must in this new restaurant, which has a gelato bar and fire pit s'mores.

Food was decent, service was ok. The seating was pretty poor as you had the feeling you were sitting in a part of the kitchen. Worst thing was that when we came back from tasting the gelato we wanted for our desert our table was almost cleared like we had already left.

We ate here several times for dinner while staying at the Sheraton. The food was very good, they had a good kids menu, and the gluten-free pizza was the best I’ve ever had. The wine selection was also good and the service was friendly and attentive.

The food was delicious. Location was perfect. Only issue was, we booked a table starting that it was a celebration dinner for my daughters birthday. Nothing was even mentioned by the host or server. Pretty disappointing. There we’re approximately 11 people at the location from the beginning and end of our stay

7 Mile Kitchen was chosen based on Opentable suggesting the restaurant as we were in an area we were unfamiliar with. It was not apparent from Opentable that 7 Mile Kitchen was the 'quick and cheap' option within the Sheraton Hotel. If this was known at the time of booking we would have not booked. Lack of time was the only reason we stayed. Very disappointing.

I'm always skeptical of restaurants attached to hotels. I gave 7 mile a fair shot. Too cold as they left doors and windows open with temps in the 40s. Food was ok. Some entrees were left off original order.

The chicken was undercooked. We simply asked for it to be cooked a little longer, not a brand new meal. I got a glare, the food came back, and the chickens was once again undercooked.

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. We wanted a nice casual place and 7 Mile delivered on the food and atmosphere. But, the service was very slow. The men enjoyed the burgers and the cocktails were excellent, very well made. We will try again and hope to get our food in under an hour.

Four of us went for dinner. The food was o.k., nothing outstanding or special, but the prices were good. Most restaurants these days are so noisy that you can't have a quiet conversation. Not true here. We enjoying the relative quiet even though the restaurant was about half or more full.

We found out after we got there that you can only use your Passport card for their limited amount of entrees. This does not include their hamburgers or pizzas. After we each ordered a horrible entree, we heard our waitress telling the table behind us that the best deal is to order appetizers (which included pizzas) as they were 50% off. It would have been cheaper for us to get pizzas then to use the Passport card on entrees that we didn't want in the first place. It would have been nice for our waitress to share this information with us prior to ordering. Once she saw the Passport card, things went down hill. She could have said that the Passport card is only good on certain entrees, however, you can get a really good deal on other items during happy hour. How hard would that have been? Then the bill came and an automatic tip of 18% was added on to it. We use the Passport card at least once a week, and this was the first time since we got our card 7 years ago that a tip was added in automatically. We read some of the reviews on Open Table prior to going, and everyone was raving about the hamburgers and pizzas. Too bad no one mentioned that you can't use the Passport card on them. It was a bad experience and we will never go back again.

Only reason to consider this place is if you have to stay at the Sheraton hotel to which it is attached.
Food was less than mediocre
Service was slow and brusque
Prices were ridiculous in light of the poor food quality.
A fail

To start with the ambiance was outstanding! The staff were all so friendly, helpful and full of energy! The grilled artichoke was a bit tough and not much flavor. The Lasagna ( meat sauce) was very tasty but was an extremely small portion for the price( even our server commented it was an unusually small piece). The steak with sautéed mushrooms and onions , fries and salad was the showstopper!!! Simply amazing!!! Macaroni and cheese was perfect too! The sausage pizza was excellent!!! Can’t wait to go back and try a few more things!

This was our 2nd time @ this location. First time was for happy hour a few weeks ago. We ordered pizza and drinks. Pizza was good and the happy hour prices were fantastic. Not to mention it was a great spot for kids to dine at.
This past weekend we decided to go there for a special occasion with a couple of guests and the service was horrible!! Our drink order was wrong & when we addressed it we received a horrible attitude from the bartender. In addition, one food order was wrong. Our pizza was cold and the wings were horrible and needed to be sent back.
Lastly, it wasn’t crowded and the waiter barely came to our table. At one point I started stacking up the finished plates and glasses so that we could make room on the table.

Convenient if you’re staying at the hotel (Sheraton, Westin or MarBrisas). The food is tasty (burgers, pizza, lasagna) but the servers need more training. For a location that’s touted as family friendly, we received several eye rolls (hostess and servers) when we were trying to get our toddlers settled for dinner. Wish they could have been more helpful and empathetic. They also need to install window shades.

Started with the grilled artichoke.. it was ok but needed a different dipping sauce.. added Parmesan, pretty plain.
My friend had a house salad with added chicken.. this salad needed help!
Could add something to make it more appetizing!

I had no idea this restaurant was in the Sheraton Hotel and, not being familiar with the area, right next to Legoland. Translated this means that besides being in a hotel that to me is not a recommendation, there were children everywhere. It is definitely a family place for people staying there. The service staff could do with a bit more training and better looking outfits. The food was okay but definitely not what I was expecting.

Unfortunately, this establishment still needs to work out some major kinks. Tonight, they ran out of menus, the three hostesses looked helpless as their manager fumbled around the tablet trying to figure out where to seat people. The food was so-so and the service needs a tune-up.
The venue is comfortable and gorgeous (especially at sunset), but the food and service needs improvement.
