This rating is for the lack of communication for canceled reservations. The food and ambience has always been exemplary!

It seems San Diego has returned to a lock down again, due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). I wasn’t notified that my reservation was canceled, I had to call the restaurant to confirm, that it was take out only now. I’m glad I called, although a heads up would’ve been nice.

We had reservations for Saturday Night and when we showed up, we were told they were closed for renovations. I would have appreciated a text letting me know, since I was visiting out of town.

Great food! Drinks weren’t very strong tonight. Busboy came around way too often to remove things from our table before we were ready. Felt a little rushed.

The food & drinks where amazing. Ambiance was great and our waiter had excellent service, but the only thing I didn't like was that we where seated under the A/C unit and it was leaking, not a lot but every so often a couple of drops and that was pretty annoying but other than that the restaurant was great.

When I called & made reservations I was never notified that my visit would consist of an hour to and hour 20 mins. When we arrived again we were never told. We sat down ordered drinks & appetizers & then our main course & decided we would order more drinks when we were notified that our time limit was up. I understand there’s precautions being taken BUT pls notify your customers.

Rude host, it took another 15min to be seated on top of my reservation and if I would’ve known there was a time limit to my experience with you guys I would’ve never went and celebrated my husband’s birthday.

Went for happy hour, great prices. Server was fabulous. Food came out quick and hot. Drinks were also very quick. Fast service overall. Ambiance was very loud for 430pm on a Monday, but fun. 1.5 hour time limit on table of 3.

Loved the experience! We went on Father’s Day , it was a last minute plan but it wasn’t crowded or busy at all. The margarita I got was perfect! The food was great & came out very quickly. Our server was very informative on the menu and super nice. Can’t wait to come back!!

Fourth time here and it went great as always. The only disappointment was the time restriction that didn’t apply prior to covid-19, but I have to admit they were extremely fast with getting our drinks and food out that it made up for it. Great server! Thanks 😊

The hostess was rude, probably stressed. But my server Bree was amazing and really made our experience a 5 star one! The service is fast, delicious, fun and Bree was super cheerful, nice and attentive!

There is no social distancing, people not wearing masks, our server would get in our face, pull down his mask to talk to us. I guess because it was so crowded and noisy, it was the only way he could speak with you. The spacing of the tables was within 4’. Extremely crowded, very unsafe and noisy.

It was my friend’s birthday but they didn’t do anything or mention it at all. We asked to move outside because it was extremely loud on the second floor, but the manager said there was no room for two people even though I later saw a couple girls sit at the bar outside. He quickly dismissed us and we felt like we were shouting the whole time. Then our server told us we had a 1.5 hour limit on the table and asked us to leave in seven minutes (even though we were not told about this limit when we first arrived nor was it on the website). Other than these environment/service issues, the food itself was good and so were the drinks!

I’d recommend calling to ensure a spot on the roof, since this is where we actually wanted to be, and ask if there’s a time limit.

King and Queens is a nice establishment in Little Italy. I made reservations and was seated on the 2nd floor. You're asked to wear mask until seated then you can remove. We ordered our drinks and food right away as we previously looked over the menu. Wife ordered the Skinny Margarita and quesadila while I went with the Cucumber Margarita and 4 tacos (2 Korean BBQ, Avocado, and Chicken Mole). Drinks and Quesadila came out very fast. The tacos came out but it was the wrong order. The only issue was the length of time it took for the tacos to come out while the quesadila sat getting cold. The overall ambiance is nice but one we get through this Covid-19 I can really see this place jam packed.

Our server was super sweet and made the experience super enjoyable. She got the bartender to serve a special drink for me. Food came out fast, and we had constant attention. The only thing is we sat at a table where the wind hit us. But the view perfect, was totally worth it.
