                                    For starters, you can’t beat the view! If you’re need to San Diego, just visiting, or celebrating a special occasion this is a great spot. Drinks are so fun and delicious, food is solid, and the ambience and history is unparalleled. Can’t wait to come back and visit.

                                    We came for drinks for my husband’s birthday. I made a note with our open table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and they had a birthday card waiting at our table! So cute. Our server was very sweet and attentive. We always enjoy our time at the La Valencia.

                                    The view is incredible! We watched the sunset from the outdoor dining area - spectacular! We enjoyed the guitarist/singer, on the patio, while waiting to be seated. The food was good, but so very salty.

                                    The place is beautiful, but the food was very average and it some of the dishes were not of our liking at all. For the price and location you expect a lot more. Would not recommend.

                                    Our 1st breakfast there, on their ocean view patio. View was nice, fresh air great, Food was “A”, service hard-working. Food product quality & preparation & plate display great. Fair-priced as well. A memorable & yummy hotel Saturday breakfast.

                                    I originally booked my reservation for the Tea weeks in advanced through Open Table for an early Mother's Day gift for my sister and 91 y/o mother. When we arrived, we were told that the Tea ended at 11:45 and we had to eat in the bar or patio using the regular menu, which was nothing special. It was very disappointing. The manage offered our lunch at no charge for the inconvenience. We really had no choice, because we were already there. We sat in the bar because although a beautiful day, the wind was too cold for my mom and sister. The food was nothing special at all. The manager told us they previously had difficulties with Open Table in the past. Other than the view, I am not sure if I would recommend the hotel for lunch.

                                    Spring time tea time. Beautiful grounds and beautiful food. Disappointed by the service. No one came to refill water , the tea pot was leaking from both of our tea pots. We had to ask for things instead of getting good attentive service. Tip was included but thought it was not worth the service

                                    Spring afternoon tea: beautiful set up. Wish I could have been seated by a window. (The request was mentioned in my OpenTable booking.) The room does get loud when all diners are present. Food was good and filling. Wish our teapots were refilled more frequently. Post eating: Sat at our table for an excessive amount of time after finishing our meal and was never given a check. Plates were cleared from the table due to sitting for so long. After thirty minutes of being done with food, we assumed it was taken of in our reservation fee since the reservation required a significant credit card hold. Currently in the process of phone-tag with the restaurant in order to pay the bill.

                                    The hostesses were not communicating. We were supposed to be sat outside, then we were told no, then we were sat inside and 10 minutes later the other host came over and told us we can’t sit there because it was reserved for a party so we were moved outside. It just felt very chaotic and I was embarrassed because I was excited to bring my family there who traveled in from out of state

                                    We asked to be seated by the window when we came in, we saw a table set for 4. The waiter told us he would rather not reset the table for two. So we sat where we were, looking forward to the tea and service. The tea pot leaked all over and did not keep the water hot. We had to ask for refills. The service was not up to La Valencia standards. The 20 percent tip was excessive and because it was not included in the price but added automatically there was no choice but to pay for not great service. The tip was inappropriate. I would not recommend this experience.

                                    Omg. This place came highly recommended and for our 41st anniversary (from out of state) we had asked for a table by the window. They put us outside, far back and it was cold. The oysters were rank. They acted as though we never made a reservation too. Won't go there again.
