Had a great time, the food was fantastic. The deviled eggs were almost as good as mine! We went for HH, great drink prices and a good HH menu to choose from. The only challenge was trying to find the place in UTC.

Kitchen was very slow. All food did not come out at the same time.

Dining area too crowded.

Food was great! Expect to spend a good amount of money, especially if you are having cocktails. East to get to from the parking garage. Service was not rushed and everyone was very friendly.

Walk ins were waiting quite awhile for a table. Reservations are a must if you want to avoid the wait.

Overall, a great place!

My friend had the fried chicken and donuts - amazing! I had a bacon scramble which was good. My first time at this new location. Meals I have at other locations have been better but it could have been just based on my selection that day. I still highly recommend eating here!

Not nearly as good quality of food and service as Great Maple off of Washington. This was the second time at UTC and will not be back anytime soon. Talked to the manager and they didn't do anything to resolve the issue. Very disappointing.

A group of 4 of us went for dinner after drinks at Raised by Wolves, the location’s a little hard to find from the mall itself, as their only entrance is on the street. All 4 of us were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food compared to the location in Hillcrest! The same maple bacon donuts were way better at the UTC location. Good food, good service, lots of seating, would recommend if you’re in the area and looking for casual dining.

Their menu is different from that of Hill Crest. I brought my co-worker to have their signature french toast. But it was a huge disappointment..,The surface was so hard that I couldn’t cut even with my knife. Also it was too dense to absorb the egg mixture.

Extremely slow service. They brought us an extra dish and apologized for our food being late. But they didn’t tell our server who was confused. It seemed like they had missed/lost our order perhaps. The waitress seemed to give up after that.

I reserved a table for 10 people for Sunday brunch. It was the first weekend this location was open so the food took a while to come out and a few items were not available by 1pm, but we understood the circumstances (other guests not so much unfortunately). Wait staff was very apologetic about the delays and kept the coffee coming! Food was great, portions were large, and the outside finish was beautiful. A little difficult to get to (not great signage in the mall, and it’s right next to the parking garage) but worth it all! Will return in a few weeks once they have settled into the new location! (And of course, get the maple doughnuts, but beware they are very rich and indulgent and oh so good when warm!)

Ate brunch at Great Maple during their first Sunday brunch. There was definitely quite a wait even with a reservation (from talking with staff, it sounded like they didn’t expect to be so popular the first weekend after doing no advertising or promotion). The staff was very professional and accommodating despite the never ending train of people, and I would recommend this place based on the managers/wait staff alone (but the beignets are also DIVINE:)

Great food and great service. However, the location sucks. Yes, it is “technically” in UTC, but it is located downstairs in the parking garage and not really anywhere near the mall, or anything for that matter. And worse, there are no clear directions from the mall down to the restaurant....I hope it survives because the food is really good.

Service was stupid slow and they got our orders wrong. Birthday girl didn’t get her meal until 1.5 hours after she ordered it. Two other orders came out 20 minutes before that. Took forever just to get coffees. This place is beautiful and I know they just opened but they have to have more servers on to give somewhat decent service!

Took my wife here last week after we finished running around the mall. We had a superb experience - everyone is so nice and helpful. The food is great - i kept eating the mac and cheese that came with our steak and had to take a nap after.

Book with confidence, you'll have a great time here and they will treat you very well.

First time visit to this new location. We choose to sit outside in the covered patio area. A little traffic noise. Staff seemed a little under the curve but they may be new to the location and job. Food was at least average or a little better but was uniquely prepared and presented. Maple bacon is the theme of the menu.

The restaurant has a beautiful ambiance. A little hard to find when you are coming from the mall but you can always ask around for directions.
The food is great though I wish they have more breakfast menu, just like what they have in Hill Crest. You gotta try their Chicken and maple bacon donuts, it's sooo GOOD! Their regular coffee is really good, too. Definitely, my favorite breakfast place.

OFF TO A NOT SO GREAT START. We made reservations two weeks ago at the new Great Maple UTC for Easter brunch. Over the past 3 days, I received 5 text and email confirmations plus a notice on my open table app. I replied to the text in the affirmative and received a confirmed reply. SO...We arrive this morning as scheduled and it’s CLOSED. Lovely way to have Easter brunch ruined. UTC mall helped us get reservations at another restaurant at the last moment, which we really appreciated. I cannot say anything about this location’s food. Though I know the other SD location is great. What I can say is there was a complete lack of respect for its customers and a total management breakdown. Who allows reservations for a place that is not open?!?AND...We have heard this happened to several other people today.
