The Ambiance, Service and food were outstanding. I travel regularly for business and pleasure entertaining clients and seeking good food wherever I go. I know what good food is supposed to taste like, and how it should be presented. Born & Raised exceeded all my expectations! I will be back many times.

We had a recommendation to visit the restaurant. Overall, it is overrated. For the price - we could have done better on the flavor of the food. Table-side service is always nice and the champagne for our anniversary was nice. Just did not live up to the hype.

I decided to bring a dear friend into BAR for her last night in San Diego. We were greeted with smiling faces from the hostesses at the hostess stand, who confirmed our reservation and seating preferences. We sat close to the kitchen to have a nice view of the action, best decision ever. The rooftop is usually my go to, but I think I’ve found a new favorite spot to sit. The food was beyond phenomenal! I melted in my seat as every perfectly plated dish appeared in front of us. You just have to try everything on the menu, that’s what I’m doing. I’ll be back again soon!

Cheers!

One of the best nights! We have been take care of by 4 servers. Andrew gave us the best description of the menu. Sounded like a theater scene 😍 and tasted heaven.

The service was good. Fun experience with the table-side service. The meal took about 3hrs start to finish. I ordered the beef Wellington, which warned of a 30-45min wait, ended up being 1hr and 15minutes.

Recommend getting the steak sampler. You get a little taste of each. The macaroni and cheese and bread is delicious. Definitely very pricey. Maybe a bit overpriced. But the ambiance and service matches. Wonderful, attentive service.

Always great to celebrate here. I table location was by far our favorite, except for when we ordered the steak tartare it actually wasn't tableside due to the party next to us. Server and manager were great!

Worth everything! We’ve been looking to have wagyu but all of the restaurants we’ve tried kept running out. Our server, Emily, and tableside salad guy, Nico, it was a lovely evening for a special occasion: my boyfriend’s deployment!

Everything on this night was very special. My son is in the Navy and getting deployed this week. They sent up a fantastic table on the outdoor patio and he said everything was so perfect. Food, atmosphere, just everything. Thank you for making this night special and God Bless our Military.

Brought wife here for her birthday. Was both our first time. BEST steak and prime rib ever. Mac and cheese was amazing. I will come back for ribeye and mac cheese again! I want to try a tableside salad as well next time. Looked really good!

Everything was exceptional except for the steak. I've had quite a few steaks in my day...doctor would say too many. This steak wasn't great. They make up for it in everything else the do though: other dishes, drinks, interior design, service, table side shenanigans...all top notch.

We took a group to Born and Raised for a birthday celebration this past Tuesday, January 7, 2020. This was our second visit to this restaurant, but sadly this will be our last. B&R was simply wonderful in all respects on our first visit, but it totally missed the mark this time. The ambiance is still stunning but food quality and service were a great disappointment. Although the charcuterie plate was excellent, everything else was nothing special and my wife’s prime rib was anything but prime...tough, cold and grayish, not appetizing at all. Didn’t even seem fresh. Steaks and sides were fine, but nothing special and not worth the prices. Service was poor to say the best. Drink orders took nearly 20 minutes. What a disappointment!

Hands down, the very best dining experience I've had in San Diego in some time!
If you are looking for an elevated evening, I could not recommend Born & Raised more. Worth absolutely every penny!

As always, the service was exceptional. Ambience and food were great, however the kitchen was slow and portions were smaller then in the past. There was a 35 minute delay in-between second and third course. Overall it was a great dining experience.

Excelente 4a ocasión que los visito aunque tuve problemas con mi reservación de Open Table, pues no la tenían y tuve que esperar 1 hora.
Los alimentos como siempre calidad primium, excelente pero se tardaron 1 hora en servir los alimentos después de tomar la orden.

We went on NYE and expected the service to be a little delayed. We were wrong. We were sat at our reservation time. Drinks, appetizers and our food came fast and were all delicious. The atmosphere is very energetic and Great Gatsby like. The servers were very nice and helpful with drink and menu choices. The food was perfect and delicious. We can not wait to go back!!
