This is an absolutely amazing restaurant in La Jolla. They have the best scallops I have ever eateen that just melt in your mouth. You must try this restaurant. This was my second time going back within a month and I live in Orange County.

Disappointed in our server for the evening - my wife did not like the pork belly. Instead of asking for a different meal, or if it could be prepared differently, the meal was taken away and still left on our bill at the end. Won’t come back to this location, but will continue to go to Santa Monica location given overall better service.

Lobster roll lunch is a special treat. Nice selection of hand crafted drinks. Free parking adjacent to restaurant is another plus. Perfect lunch ambience. Chris was very helpful
as our server.

Great for Valentine's Day lunch with the BEST Hostess ever! Usually there are TWO hostesses,
(and I've never been impressed by any !!) but ONE was just right, especially this one!
Chris was our waiter and we ate from menu along with a bottle of wine. I had wierd requests (like straw for my water glass) and special bread for my sandwich and he cheerfully accommodated me. Don't think I was offered a dessert menu though but would have asked if I needed one. Our relaxing lunch ended with the gift of a long
stemmed RED rose! Voila for Valentine's Day! FREE parking lot is always appreciated!

Went for Valentine dinner. Lots wrong. $88.00 for their 4 course meal was a ripe off. Waiter was inattentive, 45 minutes between courses, pasta was in-eatable and I ended up not having a main course. Steak was undercooked and couldn’t be cooked more because they cut it into strips.
We were first seated right next to a bar cleanup area where dishes and bottles were clanking loudly. Then we were moved to a table where overhead music speakers played really loud music that was certainly not of the romantic sort. The manager was nice and discounted our dinner but the experience was awful.
Overall, worst Valentine’s Day dinner ever.

The pictures do not do this restaurant justice. It is absolutely beautiful! I will say that the chefs clearly have an affinity for hot sauce...two of the four courses my boyfriend had for Valentine's Day dinner tasted unmistakably of it... Nevertheless any issues with our food were forgiven thanks to the incredible ambiance of the place!
