Food was mediocre at best. Kids enjoyed the pizza. I don’t think I’ll go back. Pretty disappointing for a nice hotel/resort; thought their food would have been better.

Definitely a good spot if you’re on vacation and staying at a hotel near by. We live in the area and thought it would be a good place to take the family. Our experience was less than expected. The burgers were terrible, pizzas were good, wine was good, martinis were very bad and prices overall were a high. There are so many good places in Carlsbad, we will not be back here.

The staff treated us so well and we enjoyed our family style meal . We had a nice table . The cocktails were exceptional, old fashioned was one of the best I ever had . Also ordered was Colorado Bull Dog - I called it Carolina Bull Dog but bartender figured it out once I told him ingredients. Super delicious. Our salad , pizza and pasta were made to order . We added cheese and pepperoni for minimal charge . Family style meal priced at $35 for family . What a great deal .

Service was poor. Server never came around, never cleared dirty dishes or refilled drinks. Had to get up from table to catch her. We eventually sought out the Manager.
Bartender sloppy bar-keep and horrible cocktail. Need other staff to help out more.

Breakfast would had been better at Denney's. Luke warm coffee, didn't remember about the gluten allergy they were told about when I ordered. The substitute for the toast was plain yogurt(yuck), the breakfast potatoes were way too spicy to eat, and the bacon rated old and reheated. Infact nothing was hot. I would not recommend eating here.

Great restaurant for a family or somewhere with a nice view. It is located in a hotel so call for parking cause that was confusing. Pizza and salad was great. Drinks aren’t anything to write home about but are traditional and will have what you want. Our kids loved the food which is hard to find decent kids menu. Definitely recommend for a family outing that’s not super quiet and stressful.

Party of 10 of us. We’d recently dined there and had such a nice time, we returned with our guests. Stellar all the way through. Axel (not Rose) was our server and hit a grand slam. We will return again and again.

The food was amazing and the portions were very generous! The service was the worst. We gave our credit card to prompt the server to get us our bill. She pocketed the credit card and didn't provide us our dessert (which she was supposed to scoop for us) until thirty minutes and THREE reminders later. After the second reminder, she decided to engage in a long conversation with a customer for another 8 minutes. When we reminded her again she was snappy and rude. The indoor ambiance has a cafeteria feel, but the outdoor seating is great.

We had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner at 7 Mile Kitchen - I loved that it was one of the few options that was not a "Thanksgiving buffet" for $90/person. We got the GF pizza, pasta and pumpkin pie. The pie and pasta were delicious. I've had better GF pizza - but all in all, it was great! Took a peak at the breakfast menu - we'll come back for that next time we're in town.

They were somewhat busy. It is in a resort which should have been my clue to stay away but I thought we would give it a try. We waited almost 10 minutes for our server. Server didn’t ask if we wanted anything besides water which seems like server questions 101. She didn’t ask if we needed anything but asked kind of strangely “everything is good, right?” She rarely smiled. In the end the power plant wood-fired pizza (which featured artichokes and broccoli) was delicious. The smoked chicken fries were also good but the chicken was dry. We liked the decor but it was so loud. We may just leave this place for the visitors and stick to other local places.

So, I really want to like this restaurant. It is close to home. It is a nice location and a lot of potential.

Unfortunately, after several attempts, I have resigned myself to one simple fact - 7 Mile Kitchen is not a nice place.

The restaurant is divided into two parts - inside and outside. The inside might be an option when the weather is too cool for outside. I say "might", because nothing has been done to make the inside a pleasant environment. The host stand is oddly situated in the middle of the interior room so there is constant traffic wandering around. The kitchen and service stands take up a large part of the interior and diners are regularly treated to the singing kitchen doors. To top it all off, the acoustics in the dining room are so bad it is often impossible to hear across the table.

The outside is much more relaxing, particularly on a sunny day. The problem outside is more about the food and the service. Everything is just average. The pizzas are always a little soggy, the fish and chips is always just a little under done, the glasses are almost clean. You get the idea.

The servers are all friendly, but are always either distracted or over committed to tables on different sides of the restaurant.

If you are staying at the hotel, stop in for waffle fries and a beer. Otherwise, there are so many better options in Carlsbad.

Food was good but service was pretty terrible. Server forgot to put our appetizers in. Got the kids order wrong. Asked for salad no onions, came with onions. One of the dishes came 20 mins after all the others. And our server wasn't very friendly.

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.
