Is not my kind of restaurant. Very unhealthy options. I am not there target audience.
Uno de mis hijos eligió el lugar pues fue su promoción y fue el lugar indicado, la comida deliciosa, la presentación y las porciones muy bien, súper calidad y el servicio el mejor, de nuestros lugares favoritos para celebrar ocasiones especiales.
Good was delicious. Huge portions. Service was very good and servers were very friendly.
Just a bit confusing for people to find the entrance to the restaurant.
I was frustrated with the wait. We had a reservation at 2. We checked in at 1:55. I checked back at the desk at 2:15 and another person told me we were never checked in. We then waited another 10 minutes. They sat the 5 of us at a small 4 top. But after that the food and service was good.
We were able to get a table outside along the sidewalk on the outside of the mall. So, it was a little noisy, but also provided good people watching. Food was great, as usual. Large portions. My friends and I hadn’t seen each other in over a year, so it was nice that the waitress didn’t rush us out. She also brought a little treat for the birthday girl.
Everything was great except the plate we got was sooo tiny ! Don’t recommend the chorizo hash, it also comes with only one piece of bread and a super small portion of eggs it looks like one egg only and it was almost 20 dollars for the plate. I do like doughnuts they are so good !
Food is very good. The maple bacon doughnuts are a must have. We had our young son and the waiter Hidalgo was very patient letting my son order his own food. Excellent experience will return soon
Great food. Hard to find!
The only issue was how long it took a server over 25 minutes to take the order and even stop by and drop off waters. Otherwise, food was great as always, restaurant was clean with good spacing between our table and others. Decor is very different than their Hillcrest location but fits really well in the neighborhood. I really love the maple bacon donuts and fried chicken.
We had the blueberry silver dollar pancakes and French toast logs. They are stingy with the blueberries and the prices are high in comparison to other breakfast places. The French toast logs are good but more like a spongey cake than bread. Our server seemed new and was not very attentive and had difficulty remembering. Another waitress in the area did our refills the entire time we were there and handled our check, so at least they worked as a team to keep service going. Overall, it was a blah experience and the check is over $100 for 4 people. Probably will not be back. Oh, and they no longer offer the wonderful biscuits I had on my first visit over a year ago.
My sister and I dined here and it disappointed us. My waffles were cold and her chorizo scramble was mediocre and definitely not worth the amount we paid. We also felt rushed by our server even though it was 1pm and not busy at all. We also both work in the hospitality industry and was blown away by the lack of care we received.
Fun and tasty food, bit pricey.
Well managed from hostess to the check: a smooth and delicious operation.
Excellent food n drinks
Food taste and presentation was excellent. Staff was attentive and friendly. Music was WAY too loud!
Good food and service.
Hidalgo was the BEST waiter/server! The noise level next to the road & parking structure was a bit much
Warm, caring service. Great food.
Best breakfast place ever!! Most excellent service, most excellent food.
Food was amazing. The Bloody Mary was excellent as well.
Great food !!! I invited my friends from México to Great Maple, they have a restaurant in a “Magic Town “ (name given to small towns in Mexico that keep the culture and traditions) They both loved it!! This is the second time I eat at Great Maple and just love the food, the restaurant is very nice and clean and they keep the tables with distance. I would really recommend it to anyone foodie like me.
Great decor. Great food. Great service.
One of the great San Diego brunch spots. Vibrant atmosphere, great food and drinks, attentive service. May be a little on the pricey side...but I am happy supporting fair employee wages and quality experience.
Good took 40 minutes for party of 2. Each dish (including sides) came out ~4 minutes after the other. Manager did not seem to care
So good!! And so pretty inside too! Mimosas are my favorite
Nice deco and atmosphere. The food is pretty good. Wished they still offered the apple pie! Service was ok. Will probably come back.
Great food and nice atmospheric but a little chilly on cold days since half the restaurant is open to outside.
Social distancing measures in place, service was good, food was delicious and drinks were refreshing.
Showing some out-of-towners the area and came by for brunch .. yum as usual!
Always the best brunch in town... the problems is always being able to only order one dish!! We always mix it up and share what everyone orders. It's all just so damn good!!!
I've wanted to go to Great Maple for quite a while. So, I decided to finally make reservations to take my family out to brunch. It definitely exceeded our expectations. We were seated outside, near the sidewalk since we had our baby in his stroller. The only thing that bothered us was that we were not checked on more than two or so times. Other than that, they were very accommodating and moved a heater to our table when we requested it. We also did not wait much past our reservation time considering it was still busy in the early afternoon. Food is AMAZING. It was definitely worth the price tag. My family definitely recommends this place. We will definitely be back and eventually, we will take my baby here when he is on solid food :)
Dead flowers on the table, server was not real friendly. Nice table, though we asked for inside & it was outside. Delicious food & bus boys great.
Lovely ambiance, delicious food, plenty of space and comfy vibes.
Great Maple is fantastic. They have the best fried chicken you’ll ever eat. Kylie is WONDERFUL, we’ve had her ever time and she remembered us and is super sweet. All of their mimosas are great and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Will definitely be back again and again!
Food was great as usual. Unfortunately was put on the “patio” next to the parking garage entrance and exit. Made it difficult to talk, a bit smelly, and will not be eating here again if seated there. Our waiter also got slammed just as we set down so the service was so-so. No knock on him, it wasn’t his fault, better seating distribution is needed.
Great food - great service. Came for a belated Mother's Day brunch. Everyone enjoyed their dishes - can't go wrong with the fried chicken and maple bacon doughnut combo. Enough food for leftovers the next day.
Highly recommend this restraunt . The service was stellar. Very friendly staff and helpful. The Bloody Mary choices and mimosas are great. The chicken and donuts , the pigs in a blanket are so amazing . Also the waffle pops. I wished I had more time to go back before leaving !!
A wonderful experience all around! Beautiful ambiance, exceptional service, and delicious food/drinks
