Contemporary European
Beeside Balcony is a hidden gem in La Jolla Village, CA with a relaxed seaside chic décor where guests enjoy global mediterranean cuisine and ocean views from interior and the balcony. A third generation chef of Spanish and Italian descent, and hailing form Paris, France, Christophe's restaurant career began at 17 in the kitchen of his father's restaurant in Pasadena when they first emigrated to the USA. Upon returning to southern California in 2011, Christophe spent 8 years as the managing partner of Eddie V's Prime Seafood in La Jolla. Here he deepened his knowledge of sourcing and cooking the freshest seafood available, while delivering world class service. The laid back coastal vibe of La Jolla, combined with the attention to detail from Christophe's fine dining background, infuses Beeside Balcony with an easy elegance that elevates any gathering, and makes the perfect backdrop to showcase his global mediterranean menu.

    This review is for the Honey Pot speakeasy experience. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. Our server was on top of it and did an amazing job providing an excellent experience for us with her communication, personality, and recommendations. What I was disappointed in was the space. It seemed like it was a back room converted into a speakeasy where the space is too small for the amount of tables they try to fit in. The decor has potential but missed the mark in making it immersive enough to feel like you were transported to another environment. I would consider returning for the main restaurant I have not been to yet but personally I would probably not revisit the speakeasy.

    Tripped on bump entering restaurant. Escargot very good but bread way too crisp to soak up liquid. Octopus entree excellent. Sea bass sitting in pool of oil. Small portion and way too oily. No caviar as advertised. Could barely eat it because of oiliness. Would not recommend.

    Beeside Balcony (LJ location) is in the middle of La Jolla downtown area. The view from its balcony is first-rate. Inside area is actually not that bad, with lots of natural light and a partially stunning view. There is also a side balcony (I believe this is what it's called), which I would try to avoid as it is busy - located in front of the entrance/exit, can get loud - a DJ spinning moderately loud music there- and there is basically no view worth mentioning. There is a decent selection of America/Mediterranean meals with most of them sounding good, but unfortunately, the taste leaves something to be desired. * Spanish Octopus - overall a good combination of tastes and well thought-out dish. Execution was not great in my case as the octopus was very tough. Don't order just this if you are hungry. * Poutine Bowl was very tasty - if you are into eggs for brunch - and rich/generous. * Lamb Gyro - Generous portion, but relatively tasteless meat unfortunately. And otherwise kind of simple dish. * The cocktails we tried were just OK. Our experience with service was mixed: the waitress was excellent, providing good info/advice about the dishes and checking on us at just the right frequency. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the hostess who rigidly refused to let us sit at a different table offering better views even though the two were otherwise equivalent (same seating and both indoor). The table we were not allowed to move to sat empty for the couple of hours we were there. Overall, I won't say we had a bad time, esp. given the prime location. My feeling is that they can up the price by 20-30% if they worked on some of the mentioned limitations.

    Took my husband out for his birthday with some friends. Found this place through the San Diego restaurant gift cards. It is a little hidden gem in La Jolla. Parking can be difficult. The staff was friendly and helpful. Small place with indoor and outdoor seating. Food was wonderful.

    The food and service were very good and the ambiance was lovely. It was very loud when we were seated. Most of the noise was from a large group having cocktails with brunch. When they left it was much quieter and we could have a conversation without shouting. If the restaurant is full the noise volume would likely be pretty high.

    The salmon and truffle fries were amazing! The Baklava dessert was the best I’ve ever had - so good with a beautiful balcony!
