Everyone was fantastic except the bartenders. It is always a bummer when the bar is busy, exactly what a Bartneder hopes for and yet they seem miserable and do not engage at all. It didn’t ruin an amazing night where everyone was and the meal and drinks were fantastic! Nice work Malarky!

Right in downtown La Jolla, Herringbone not only has a diverse and delicious menu, but also has multiple choices for seating - on the patio in front, around the bar, and in a large quiet back room perfect for a group. In addition, there is adequate parking right at the restaurant.

This is our third time and probably last at this restaurant. It has a lot of potential but the service is the worst and un attentive The servers just wait for you to ask for what yo want. They just ignore you once you are seated and you are on your own. It was a dissapoitment, but we will find a new go to place in the area.

This establishment has never disappointed us. Excellent food, great service. If I have any complaint, it's that the noise level is too high with the music, making it very difficult to have good conversation. I had the scallops and they were pure perfection.

Everything fit the mold of a super hipster high-end eating establishment with small plates, minor mention of local fair, great staff, great wine, cocktails, and the food was excellent. The ambiance was good positive energy.

The only thing.... when we asked if the black cod/ sablefish entree on the menu was from Alaska, we were told it was from the Atlantic side of the US. Are sablefish actually distributed on the east coast?

I would recommend that Herringbone provide their customers, visitors with more detail on where the food is coming from with as much detail as possible, add this information to the menu. I didn’t see any local California shrimp that was a slight disappointment.

That being said I would visit this place again and recommend it for an awesome date night experience or an evening out with friends.

Cheerio!

Dinner great. Signature cocktails? Meh. Maybe they just forgot to put gin in The cucumber mint lemon drink whose name escapes me. And the Chenin Blanc glass - good with scallops but nothing great on its own.

Regular cocktails great.
Roasted carrots, great.
Scallops, cauliflower salad: both great.

Ahí poke- an amusement but the chip is super salty.

The food was excellent. The server was overly familiar. The noise level is quite high on Friday night.
