Had an amazing experience, and I appreciated the special recognition for my bday!
First time taking customers to this restaurant for dinner. Stopped by prior for drinks and really liked the atmosphere. Took new clients to this restaurant for dinner and will do so again. The outdoor seating area is very nice with the views of downtown San Diego. The noise level is not too loud, making it easy to have a conversation. The food is fantastic and service is great! Highly recommend this establishment. The outdoor patio is a bit more relaxed while the indoor/lower level seemed to be a bit more formal.
Could not have been happier with our experience and Born and Raised - from the room to the service to the food, each was better than the next. Will definitely be back - and recommend to anyone in the SD area!
The steak was absolutely perfect and our waiter was on point with his recommendations. The drinks were quite overpriced, but the food and ambiance were fantastic.
Amazing food and service. Not only the meet is awesome, but also all sides and desserts!
Awesome & helpful staff! Our anniversary dinner was absolutely perfect there!
My husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary and were very pleased with the food and service. There were nice little touches such as complimentary champagne and a special card to make us feel special throughout the night.
The ambiance was beautiful, the upstairs bar was the perfect spot for a cocktail before our dinner downstairs. The drinks were great, the food was good but it was WAY over priced in my opinion. If I was exceptionally pleased with the food then I'd say it was well worth it but I can't say that so it's hard to justify the cost. Still worth trying because it's a different experience for a high-end steak house.
I took my fiancé to born & raised for his birthday and we can’t stop talking about how amazing the experience was. The service was impeccable, our water cups were never empty, the food was beyond amazing, and the ambiance was romantic. This place is wonderful!!! We both got steaks, they were cooked exactly how we ordered them, we did the table side drink service which was so fun! And we ate the carrot cake, you must eat the carrot cake! We can’t wait to go back for another special date night!
Outstanding meal and flawless sercice! Nick and team took great care of us and helped make it one of the best birthday dinners to date.
Came here to celebrate a 30th birthday. Our server Nick was insanely knowledgeable and even encouraged us to try new things on the menu that we hadn’t eaten before. It was everything we’d hoped for and more.
Jared, our waiter, was fantastic, but did miss our potato dish & then comped it. The food was good, but not worth the price. Cocktails were very expensive. We had a corner table & it was very hot.
Awesome ambiance. Food and service underwhelming, especially for the price point.
Get the Japanese Waygu beef and thank me later👍👍
Our Born & Raised experience was exceptional. The service was truly on point. The food was prepared exactly to our request. The design/decor of this restaurant is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant.
First time to this restaurant. Didn't disappoint. Had enough beef for the remainder of the year. Could have had more anchovies in the caesar salad. Appreciated the complimentary birthday dessert.
Pricey but exceptional food and downtown view. Would go again for special occasions, but not on a date night.
Shame on the restaurant for not offering seat covers for the toilets!
This place is beautiful and has a great vibe ,unfortunately the service was REALLY slow! all the servers were super friendly , just slow.
The food was ok , definitely not worth the money .
Great place to have cocktails!
We arrived at 5:54 for a 6 pm reservation. We were told we would not be seated until 6. They weren’t waiting for the table to become available so I don’t understand what that was all about. The house salad with burrata was delicious. My husband said his steak with fois gras was very good. My steak was very good but the crab legs with them were too fishy to eat. Our server was perfect - they lost a star due to the weird wait requirement. The view was fantastic. The desserts were tempting but we were just too full.
The bar scene was great! Fun drinks, interesting people to talk to, steal Tartar was fenominal!
At dinner down stairs not so good. Steak was very fatty, potatoes were Luke warm, took 20 minutes to get our drinks.
Our service was completely over the top! I don't know if we have had better service at a restaurant. Our waitress nailed it every time she came by our table to tell us about our next course or what the specials were or recommendations. She said she was a theatre and linguistics major and it definitely came through! We joked that we were full from just listening to her describe the food it was so distinct! I think her name was Danielle? We did all of the table side cart services which I highly recommend. We started out with the tableside manhattans which were served with aged cherries that were to die for. Who knew a cherry could make all the difference in your Manhattan? Then we got the tableside Caesar salad. So yummy, kind of spicy and has anchovies but we loved it. Then came the steak Diane done tableside and sides of lobster and gnocchi that were to die for. The gnocchi was so good we ordered a second dish of it. I was hoping for a little more yumminess on the dessert table, but I was so full I didn't need the dessert anyway. The manager stopped by at one point to very discretely let us know that they could move the table next to us if they were bothering us as he must have noticed they were getting drunk and had heckled at us girls a couple times. Very professional. I would highly recommend this place! Oh, they make a good cosmo too which isn't really that cool of a drink these days but they made it seem cool again!
Greeted with a birthday card, sparkling wine and a "bump" of caviar! Josh was an EXCELLENT server and made my birthday so much more special! All of our meals were delicious but my daughter's hamburger was without a doubt the best burger I have ever tasted! Can't wait to visit again the next time we're on San Diego!
Amazing! So much teamwork and superb service!
Excellent for SPECIAL ocacion nice ambiance and excellent service
My husband and I came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and his birthday and the entire experience was absolutely amazing. The food was phenomenal and the service was top notch. We will definitely be returning!!!
Typical over priced steak house with the "need to be seen there" crowd. The one outstanding aspect of the evening was the excellent and attentive service. Very reminiscent of schooled European waiters. Patio seating on the upper level is nice. Food was as any other "high end" steak house. Everything was as one would expect considering the prices. Very large - yet obscenely over priced bar selection, good wine selection.
Clearly Born and Raised is meant to be something extraordinary, unique and classy (bravo, much appreciated), but their efforts are SPOILED by their refusal to enforce any expectation on their customers' dress. Not wanting to offend anyone who might balk at being expected to come in a dress, or a nice jacket, the owners are actually disrespecting those of us who thought the venue was supposed to be something special and dressed to suit the occasion.
San Diego's unofficial, universal dress code is basically "Slob" which---although I indulge in it too at casual places---gets kinda old when it's everywhere you go. It would be nice to have a few more finer restaurants in the San Diego area (along with Addison) that have a dress code AND actually mean it...
My favorite restaurant in San Diego!! The ambience is spectacular and the food over the top I consistently recommend to personal and professional connections.
Despite the great ambiance, I was shocked to say the least with the Outback taste that our $110 porterhouse steak had. I requested a medium well steak and it came colder than anticipated and rough!
One of The best meals I’ve ever had!
Steak was amazing.
Caesar was even better than mine ( i’m famous for it!)!!
It was wonderful
Overall an amazing place!
Everything we had was very flavorful and perfectly prepared for our entire 5 person group. We had a wonderful time for a birthday celebration, and enjoyed the environment of the upstairs outdoor seating area. Service was excellent, and there was no rushing or errors made. Thanks for memorable festivities!
I always enjoy dinner here. The staff is amazing, the food is fantastic, and the atmosphere is out of this world.
Wonderful experience for my wife's birthday.
The staff was very attentive, we had a good table...no less than 4 or 5 employees wished her a happy birthday, she had a handwritten card from the staff and a free desert. Devon our server was also perfect and service flowed wonderfully all night. Shortly, the service impeccable.
Ambience was great and our food was also very very good.
Its pricey and that's expected. But, for a special occasion it was hard to beat the experience.
The setting is exceptional and the service over the top. We ordered bread for $5 and the popovers at Vintana are superior and free. We were celebrating my son's birthday and he is a steak lover. I do not eat red meat. The Ceasar salad was good but not exceptional; the same with the mashed potatoes. I was told the steak was excellent. For the price however I expected better.
We made reservations to celebrate our anniversary. Once we checked in at the front, we were seated within 5 minutes. However, it took about half an hour for our waiter to take our food order, but the table next to us who were seated minutes after us were taken care of immediately. They seemed to be friends of the chef.
The food was delicious. The Japanese wagyu was as incredible as the wagyu I had while in Japan. Their side of potatos was buttery and light and the crudo appetizer was full of flavor and aethestically pleasing in presentation.
It’s a great place to dine at for special occasions, but can get quite loud. Waiters should check in with their diners more often because ours was hard to get a hold of.
I will be back for their Japanese wagyu!
One of my favorite restaurants of all time. The service was spectacular and the food was amazing. My husband and I highly recommend this experience!
One of the best steaks I’ve had in California. Amazing service.
