Perfect Covid 19 restaurant with a lot of outdoor seating in front of the entrance on the wooden sidewalk setup. Also of course where we sat, the beautiful balcony booths.

Amazing steaks and delicious sides.

6 people, 6 steaks , 3 sides and wine total was $700.

Beautiful restaurant. They ran out of the few seafood options entirely leaving almost nothing for our non meat eating guest except a salad. The meatball with polenta is exceptional.

Absolutely spectacular food and service. Very well organized and prepared for the current environment. When we want amazing drinks and spectacular dry aged beef, nothing compared to Born & Raised. Not to mention the mouth watering Japanese wagu. You have done amazing job with your staff. So many awesome people.

We selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary! We absolutely loved the entire experience. Matt, our server, was a true professional and knew how to guide us throughout. We shared the house salad/ and gave the steak sampler a shot! Wow, it was and amazing experience and we nailed it by complimenting the dish with potato gnocchi and Mac and cheese. We were celebrated with very tasty champagne and some dessert at the end! This restaurant always exceeds our expectations!

Food was good but definitely overpriced. They need to work on getting the food out a little faster. Is hard to have a great dinner experience when the food takes 1.5 hrs.

The staff, steak, cocktails and wine list at Born and Raised were aces. We celebrated my sister’s birthday and it was the first sit down restaurant we’ve dined at since sheltering in place for the past four months. Appreciate everything they are doing to accommodate guests during the pandemic and doing it with heart!

Awesome venue. This was my first time at Born & Raised. The venue is simply beautiful, the staff are attentive and knowledgeable and the food is 10/10. All the wine we sampled was excellent. A couple of the side dishes would have been better if served slightly warmer but this was rectified immediately. We will be recommending this place to our guests and friends alike

From the moment we arrived we had the beat service. Despite the climate of the dome in service, we were welcomed with positivity and smiles (you could tell they were smiling behind those masks!) the new barriers between the tables make it very comfortable and safe to be dining out. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and every staff we interacted with wished us a happy anniversary. Our waiter, Reid, was very friendly and so helpful when we were deciding what we wanted off the menu. We ended up getting 2 starters, steaks and 2 sides. Everything was prepared to perfection! We thoroughly enjoyed every bite and will definitely be back!

I was absolutely blown away!!!! I am rarely blown away but from start to finish born and raised continuously blew my mind. As soon as we arrived for our reservation we were walked to our table and we greeted immediately. We ordered drinks and even had a sommelier as our server which is impressive! The food was served at a perfect temperature and was bursting with flavor. They made it so easy for us to have such an amazing time because the ambiance, service, food and drinks were just 5 stars! It is impossible to have a bad time here I will continue to come back here as long as they are open.

The upstairs patio is open again and these guys didn’t miss a beat. This restaurant was phenomenal prior to the shutdown and somehow they’ve come back even better!

For drinks, the French 75 is one of their best cocktails and the wine and champagne list is top notch.

For food, any of the steaks are amazing. My favorites are the sampler and the tomahawk. Amazing! Also, they have a dry aged duck for two that is fantastic.

The service and atmosphere in this open air paradise is impeccable. Thomas the GM makes us feel like family every time we visit. Servers Adam, Art, Chris are friendly and attentive, Caroline the bar manager runs an amazing craft cocktail menu and the Somm Raphael is extremely knowledgeable for any price point.

If you’ve never been, it’s a must visit in San Diego. And if you’ve been, but not in awhile, it’s better than ever!! :)

The experienced was not what I was expecting since they gave us the last table in the restaurant when there were several others available. The hostess told us those tables were for more than 4 people. When we left, those tables were occupied by two people. The food was ok, not for the price.

It was the most amazing restaurant my girlfriend and I have ever been to, we had the wagyu as well as the sea bass. We drank Smith Madrone Riesling and had the liquid nitrogen ice cream. $350 with tip but more than worth it.
