                                          Very unpleasant experience. I had raved about this place & we met friends there on my recommendation. Entree was served before we received appetizers. Dessert so frozen difficult to spear to eat. Conversation *impossible* due to large part of screaming girls that were seated next to us ( instead of a private room) No effort by management to reign in or request party to quiet down. Finishing dinner was excruciating.

                                          L'Auberge does a great job with their Mother's Day buffet. Love the refreshed dining area and the out door dining is always hard to beat.

                                          Celebrating friends birthday. Overall had a great time. The view was great and service was ok. We weren’t overly tended to since we needed drink refills and had to ask. But food came promptly and the atmosphere was great. I will definitely come back.

                                          AMAZING brunch this past Saturday. My wife, our 8-month old, and I are local but have never been to L‘auberge so decided to stop in for brunch. The food and drink were amazing but the STAFF was what really stood out. Everyone made us feel so welcome and were all very attentive, which when dining with an infant is always appreciated!! We will definitely be back.

                                          Easter Brunch was a disappointment. The setting is lovely overlooking the pool and ocean but the dining area functioned like a wind tunnel, and on a beautiful day, guests were shivering in blankets. The staff did do a nice job of responding by lowering shades to block some of the wind but it was still chilly. The main disappointment was the food. The lobster rolls were the worst I have ever had, and I have had a lot. The omelet chef ruined what might have been an okay omelet by placing cheese on the ingredients, folding over the layer and then laying on the plate without the cheese ever melting. The eggs Benedict featured large English muffins, tiny eggs that were overcooked. There were a few bright spots-- the prime rib and the deviled eggs were good and the seafood spread was delicious. Still, for $150 pp, Adelaide needed to improve quality.

                                          We are local but it was our first time dining at Adelaide. We had a wonderful meal (shared the steak) with excellent service. We will definitely return.

                                          Good restaurant with nice ambiance. Menu is short, but items are well prepared. The space is well designed with shades and wind breakers that can be mechanically dropped as the temperature goes down or if it gets windy. A bit pricey, but so are most restaurants in del mar.

                                          My mom, her friend, and I decided last minute to grab dinner here one night after we had heard the buzz around Adelaide and Chef Nick Green’s menu, and we are sooo happy that we did. From start to finish the whole meal was thought of, we got appetizers to start, and then we each got the chicken, halibut, and steak so we could try it all. I don’t know how I’d pick what one to order again because they were all so tasty. I’d recommend going for sunset for an almost front row seat! We can’t wait to go back.

                                          I wonder if there has been a change in the kitchen. The food presentation was pretty average. The fish was wonderful, but the piece of burned cabbage on the plate was surprising. I ordered beef tartare and it came looking like it had been chopped in the food processer and then slopped into a little cafeteria style bowl. Same thing with the chocolate mousse. We've had really nice meals there, but not this time.

                                          Our first trip to L’Auberge since they redid the place… Adelaide is a beautiful restaurant in an ideal setting… However there are some things they need to improve. Food service was extremely slow, 45 minutes to get bacon and eggs. Bacon wish partially warm and soggy.… will try it again soon, hoping this was only a one time anomaly

                                          Excellent food- we loved the fish dip, ceviche and scallop crudo. Our main courses were the scallop special and halibut- both were delicious. We enjoyed the light take on a pavlova for dessert. The attention to details- house made pita with the smoked fish dip and fresh blue corn tortilla chips with the ceviche were appreciated. The fish in all options was impeccable. We went early and caught a stunning sunset from a window table. The staff is efficient and professional. Our server (like many servers these days) seemed to be responsible for nearly all of the tables but she remained friendly and attentive despite the busy restaurant.

                                          Since we were not too hungry, We had only appetizers, and it was delicious! Kind of Ottoleni’s Middle East menu. For small bites and great drinks it is a great place, plus beautiful ocean view!

                                          We arrived 30 minutes early and they actually seated us right away. The only issue that I had was that they had live music, which was very good, but a little too loud for conversation. Otherwise the experience was amazing.

                                          We went for NYE last night and it was amazing! Justin and Sue were so attentive and kind. The entire staff is warm and welcoming. The burrata and ceviche is a must. My filet was one for the best cuts and perfectly medium rare. Desserts are quite creative. Very flavorful and lost of texture. Just lovely! We will be back!

                                          Regrettably, the dining experience was not a good one. The restaurant announced shortly before our reservation time that related to staffing shortages /COVID-issues, they would have a very limited menu. That menu had 6 items on it in total, though prices certainly weren’t altered to adjust the diminished dining experience. No desserts were available, and we found the drink menu to be uninspired. Perhaps our greatest disappointment was a $6 charge for the privilege of splitting a hamburger. This seems ridiculous under any circumstances, but particularly in this case when we were one of the few people who appeared willing to stick with our reservation despite the circumstances

                                          I've been there a few times and it seems to be losing the quality in food each time,,, what a shame. great place, so so food now. I hope they do something about it soon.

                                          We stopped in for breakfast last Sunday. We live in Del Mar so it is something we do from time to time. The food is quite good and service is excellent. Our only complaint this time was the morning was cold and the heaters are too high up to be effective. I know we lingered less than we often do.
