The food was great and tasted good. The service however NOT SO GREAT! We asked to be moved bc we were not interested in sitting in the garage. The host that moved us was awful. He stated reservations only get better seating. Well we had reservations. He just pointed to a table and asked us to sit there and walked away. When I explained this to the manager she brought us a bag of cold and possibly old beignets. She offered a round of drinks on the house which was nice but we just had her cover the coffees. The waitress was really sweet, but in the middle she had to take her break and that was fine. We got Juan and he was nice too. I have been here a handful of times and food is mediocre but the staff needs a customer service training. Say one that teaches them how to appropriately react to customers concerns. Finally, I am not sure if I will be eating here again due to common and consistent service issues.

Not impressed with the chilaquiles. They were whole Tortilla chips with a mix of sauce, chorizo, sour cream and cilantro. They were just okay.

Our reservation was for 11:15, we showed up at 11:20 at the host was like “oh.... you’re 20 minutes late...” so I had to explain that I wasn’t. Then we waited another 15 minutes to be seated in the parking garage to the side of the restaurant at a 4-person table with an extra chair propped in the walkway to accommodate our party of 5. I made this reservation more than a week in advance. We were seated in the crappiest location and treated like we had shown up at some appallingly late time.

Friendly greeting at door had reservation but was early. We wanted to sit at the bar so we were shown directly there. We had wonderful Bloody Marys with crunch large dill pickle and very meaty bacon strip. Squash blossoms and potatoes very tasty and something different. Usually we cannot get past bacon donuts. It is good to try something new. Cannot say enough good things about our waiter Gustavo. Great service allowed us to take our long time enjoying a leisurely brunch.

We had a great time at our Easter Brunch. The restaurant is pricey for every weekend. Some outdoor seating is at parking garage exit which could be off putting.

We had reservations for 9:45, arrived 2 minutes early and they sat us right away, then 18 minutes goes by without one person coming over. Brisket hash was alright, mom got the scramble with bacon and we both noticed the potatoes were hardly warm...like pre cooked but they never got hot before they served them. They did bring us free beignets for the long wait, but the price of breakfast does not warrant the service nor the quality of the Breakfast food...$20+ per plate for breakfast? Oh, it’s La Jolla, maybe that is why. Nothing impressed me enough to make this my go-to spot.

Always like the food and ambiance of great maple. Brunch offerings are good from bloody Mary’s to pig in a blanket(really Big!). The brisket sandwich was good and I chose salad as a side and that was enough to fill me! The breakfast choice was good and I added sausage which I really liked—I usually choose bacon but I’d choose sausage again. The protein bowl with salmon is tasty-so healthy,haha. Definitely a good solid place for brunch/lunch. Haven’t had dinner here yet

I truly enjoyed my experience even though all I had was the healthy breakfast option. My fiancée really enjoyed the donuts and our 4 year old actually ate most of her food, which is rare.
