Californian
Back when the Californias were one, they were designated as Alta and Baja. Our concept serves the best the area's terroir offers with a modern interpretation that fuses the many cultures that share it. Each dish is created with local ingredients and celebrates the farmers, fishermen, and artisans who bring the best of the Californias to us daily

Enjoyed lunch here - sitting outside with the views of diwntown San Diego is the way to go. The bar area inside is also relaxing with a good vibe. Service was on point and the lunch bowls are fabulous.

The two of us who ordered chicken dishes were extremely disappointed. Clearly not fresh and not prepared properly. The location of the restaurant would leave one to believe it should be a great restaurant, but not the case at all. Needs new ownership or management. They could do so much more with the great location/view. I would also recommend relocating the pool instead of it and the kids who enjoy it being located between the dining area and the view of San Diego.

My reservation through open table wasn’t registered or they didn’t receive somehow but luckily they had available seats. It was a great experience otherwise.

We live close by and come here often. The surroundings are beautiful, the servers are friendly and efficient. The food is not good. Hotel food is always hot or miss but this Albaca menu is pretty bad - and very odd. Avocado and yogurt drizzled with olive oil for breakfast? And just how do you serve bad Mexican food here?

Do yourself a favor and stick to basic dishes... the Islander Breakfast, or buffet in the mornings and the burger, salads or Fish and Chips the rest of the time. We don’t usually eat that way , but it’s the only way to be happy here. Come for a drink or two and eat a basic meal... enjoy the staff (many of whom have been here for decades and are all so charming) and look out at the bay and city beyond.

It could be much, MUCH better, but it’s pretty good.

The service for our waiter was horrible he needs much training. we felt like the forgotten table finally Gustapho excellent service manager came to rescue and corrected the situation . We paid our $50 per person and had several drinks but only after asking. I realize it was a buffet however we should not have to track down our waiter to attend to our drinks. I have the service amangers card and will correct
The spelling to make sure he is recognized for excellent attention. Great
Reastuarant their total per table would be much higher if they paid attention to their customers .
