We’re not out to take the San Diego beer scene by storm or reinvent the wheel because the truth is, there’s no shortage of good breweries in San Diego. Instead, our aim is to pair that good beer with the same delicious food, exceptional service and genuine hospitality we’re known for so you never have to compromise one for the other again. Tucked away in Sorrento mesa, our 12,000 square foot brewpub includes a full service restaurant, an event space, an expansive and lush outdoor beer garden and a pretty stellar team to make sure you always have good food in your mouth and a solid beer in your hand.

    We really used to like the place and went there from time to time. The service is very good and the people very nice. The environment is nice as well. The menu has changed again. My former favorite item, the American burger no longer uses waygu beef and has been replaced with two thin patties of cheap beef. Nothing special anymore and like something you would get a chain restaurant like a Dennys. Also it was cooked to death. The Shrimp salad was ok but only comes with three small shrimp. It's obvious that Gravity Heights is trying to cut their food costs and streamine their menu. They had a much better salad before but it was removed from the menu. I don't drink beer so I have no opinion to offer on that. As for the bar it is not good if you want a traditional cocktail. The bar is trying too hard to be trendy and cool. It has weird takes on traditional cocktails and substitutes strange ingredients that don't blend well. A good traditional cocktail doesn't need to be radically modified or reinvented. I wouldn't really care about weird drinks on the menu if I could get a regular Pina Collada, a Tom Collins or a Sunrise without chilli powder, kiwi fruit or peppermint sticks in it. Anyway we had already given up on the bar and only continued to go there for the food. Now that the food isn't very good there's really no reason to go back. I guess making and selling beer is their main focus. I'm also guessing the kitchen is open to keep the week day lunch time business and support the brewery sales in the evening. Maybe they should close the kitchen and just get some food trucks in the parking lot.

    I had reservations 1 week in advance and we got sat at the lousiest table in the house, I felt like I was sitting in a cafeteria. The wedge salad was terrible, how can you goof that up? The tea was good! My client's burger was supposed to be well done and it was medium rare, the french fries were cold. It was a disaster for over $50. I have been to Gravity one time prior and loved it, this was a disappointment. I will give it one more try, but make sure you request a table on the patio or near bar, inside was not good.

    Trendy and cool space run by Whisknladle group. Loved the open air setting in the COVID era. This bustling watering hole serves eclectic Cal cuisine. Ordering and settling bill is done through your phone which is very efficient, but impersonal. Food was tasty but unspectacular. Mezze platter was excellent and light share food. White Pizza was tasty, but not in a class with Regents. Fish tacos were downright disappointing due to not so fresh fish. Microbrews wee mostly mediocre except for one pale ale. Prices are par for teh course- Pizza was $17 as was Mezze platter.

    Food was good our first couple of visits but is at a new level now, everything we tried was just terrific - complex and balanced flavors. Made us miss Whisknladle :) Service is great and we liked the phone ordering option. The patio was delightful, will be back for sure.

    Came here to catch up with good friends and celebrate a birthday on a Tuesday evening. Parking was a bit limited in front of the establishment that one person in our party had to park off the street but not a deal breaker. We arrived 1 hour before happy hour ended and the hostess offered the option to do happy hour or not (so she can set us up at the right table). We ordered a few drinks and food to share from the happy hour menu using their online ordering service. Our table was under the tree and we stayed until closing as we were having such a great time. The staff was attentive and approachable. Food and drinks were great. It was really sweet that they brought out dessert with a candle for the birthday celebrant as well! Wonderful experience and would definitely visit again! Thank you!

    The open-air architecture is great. The food is pretty good. The only problem is you can't order food/drink from your waitress/waiter. It's all through the app, which pushes the effort onto the customer. You have to enter all of your personal info just to order, which is a pain. Instead of it taking 60 seconds to order, it takes 5 minutes. Food items are also not fully ordered until you add them to your cart, review your cart, then authorize the order. If you don't make sure to go through all 3 steps, the order doesn't go in and you don't know it. This is a bad customer experience. If they drop the app-ordering and go back to real people, I'd changed my review from 3 stars to 4, and change my answer to "Recommend to a friend?" from no to yes.

    The prices are pretty steep here. Why is a beer 20 dollars? They add a surgarge of around 4% on your check and on top of that the tip minimun is 18%

    Great atmosphere with indoor/outdoor vibe and the staff were friendly and super accommodating. Loved the outdoor patio area for a drink after dinner. Dark Beer (shady nut?) was delicious and the food was good. Will definitely go again. Parking lot is tiny, so when it’s busy that may be an issue.

    We went out for a special meal and found that our waitress could care less about our dining experience. We ordered the mezze appetizer, which was a good amount of food and delicious. My daughter and ai ordered pizzas, my husband the fish tacos, my sister, the tuna tostada. The fish tacos and tostada arrived and we waited an additional 20+ minutes for our pizzas. We had to call our waitress over because she never checked back with us. They both had finished their meals and we hadn’t received our pizzas yet. Her response was that we should have read the menu because it states that pizzas take awhile. No apology, no I’ll check on the pizzas- nothing. She could care less! If this is what COVID has done to dining out, I will stay home and cook my own meal! Not only was the service awful, they add a 3.85% service charge to the bill to help pay for the $15.00 per hour wage our awful server receives. What a joke!

    Gravity Heights is AMAZING. The environment and energy there was great. My date and I felt taken care of from the moment we arrived at the host stand to the time we left. The service was incredible and our server Raul was knowledgeable and understanding. 10/10 would recommend. Can’t wait to go back.

    We usually really enjoy this restaurant, although the menu is limited, the food is good for the most part. This last time we went they had changed a few things we were not happy with. First of all, you have to order on your phone and leave a tip before you receive any service. There are a few things about that we don’t like. First of all, we go out partly because we want to be waited on after a long day. We don’t want to have to do the work of figuring everything out ourselves, that’s the point of being “waited on”. Secondly, what if we have questions about the menu? Third, we have to tip before we have any service when the service is now just limited to dropping off the food. We usually tip 20% but I don’t think such limited amount of services should get that much. Also, there are a variety of things that could cause you tip tip a little less during your experience but you tip beforehand? What if elderly people go in there that have problems ordering from their phone or someone forgot their phone? Secondly, we used to order the mezze platter and loved it. They completely changed it for some reason, nothing on it is the same, it was terrible. We used to dine at this restaurant frequently but probably won’t be back.

    I used to work near GH and now when former coworkers get together it is our favorite gathering spot. The personnel are always friendly , especially our server. I forgot her name but we were at Table 72 at 3:55 check #181 and she was a blonde. Kudos to her winning personality and attentive service. Loved our happy hour food and glad to see you changing it up from time to time--everything was fairly priced, good portions and tasty--mezze platter and pita, carnitas tacos! Always love your shrimp and grits and pizza, so will be back for those for sure! and of course the libations. Very comfortable and could hear my friends talk. Keep up the good work

    The food was outstanding! Had dirty fries, Buddha bowl & white pizza. Love the beer selection but being GF, I sampled the cider & kombucha & had a 1/2 pour (3 sizes are offered!) of the JuneShine hard mango kombucha! We were seated at a booth in the bar area which was loud & our server was also working the bar. Seems my reservation for a standard seating & request for a booth was translated into seating in the bar which seemed louder than the rest of the restaurant.
