Mermaids & Cowboys marries ocean and land through the rich history of the Pearl Diving Mermaids of Japan and the historic Cattle Ranches of La Jolla. “Mermaids” plays homage to the Japanese Ama Divers, who helped to inspire the modern-day mythology of the Mermaid. These female free divers would dive to the bottom of the ocean to gather shellfish to feed their villages; they later became the first pearl divers for the Mikimoto Pearl Company.

“Cowboys” plays homage to the historic ranches of California, from the Tejon Ranch, established well over 300 years ago, to the Carver Bowen Ranch established in 1872. Our restaurant tells a visual story to our diners with our pearl chandeliers, saddle-leather seating booth, teak furniture, and pearlescent fish-scaled bar. The photography on the walls pays tribute to the Japanese Ama Divers and the bold California Cowboys tending their ranch and cattle.

    After reading reviews on this restaurant I was a little worried about my experience dining here but we decided to give it a chance. First of the service was wonderful from the moment we were seated to when we left, they were on top of it and I never once felt like we weren't taken care of. The food was really good. The ribeye was good, the lamb chops were really good and the brussels sprouts were some of the best we ever have had. The drinks were okay. We are happy we gave this restaurant a chance because everything about our experience was worth going.

    They must still be working out kinks here. The fact that the chef will not permit a diner to order the $175 porterhouse in any other temp except medium rare is crazy. The only crazier thing, is it came out rare and medium well - no medium rare to be had. The med-well pieces had that charred gas taste. We won't be back.

    The atmosphere of this restaurant is very good, with lots of outdoor seating and interesting ambience. The food was delicious, but over-priced for what you get ($38 for a 6 oz filet mignon with no sides). Our biggest complaint was the service. Our waiter was very nice, but we had to ask 3 times to place our drink order, when they brought our bread (which we paid $7 for) there was 1 small butter for 4 rolls, and it took 3 different people to finally bring us more butter. They never once offered to fill our water glasses without us asking first, and never asked if we wanted a second round on drinks. Overall, for the $200 we paid for a party of 4 this restaurant is way over-priced with poor service.

    Mermaids & CowboysResponded 6 days ago

    Hi Jon - I am really sorry that you did not receive the service that you deserved on your visit. We do really try to make our guests feel cared for when they are spending time with us. I hope that you might visit with us again so that we can show you what our staff is capable of. Thank you again.

    Service was terrible. We waited so long for our drinks that I asked the manager if we could be switched to a different server and even then they took forever. The place was empty at the time. The food was fine. I wish we had eaten across the street but there were no reservations available.

    We’ve tried to give this place a second chance, and really wish that it was better, but it just isn’t good. And in some ways it’s bad. Some of the food was so bad that we had to just send it back. The rest of the food is just mediocre. They have a very limited menu, which is fine, but they offer two steaks - and they were sold out of one of them on a Thursday night. It seems to be unprofessional. The staff is very nice, but poorly trained. The timing of getting drinks and orders is disorganized and off pace. I really wish this place was better, but it’s been a pretty hard fail both times we have been.

    Mermaids & CowboysResponded 6 days ago

    I'm so sorry that we have let you down twice - we definitely intend to provide a terrific experience to every guest on every visit.

    You do two things - Surf and Turf. They were out of Filets and the restaurant was empty! The Bone in was basically tougher than beef jerky. Two people in my party ordered the Halibut and we both did not eat it - it was dry and overly salted. Overall the food was awful. Will not be going back.

    It has come to my attention that they recently lost a member of their team to illness and that was why the evening did not go as planned. I have adjusted my rating in consideration. I think our party would have been more gracious and understanding having known the circumstances instead of left in bewilderment.

    Mermaids & CowboysResponded on April 26, 2022

    I'm sorry you had that experience. Our staff found out going into service that our manager was dying and I know that it definitely affected the service that they were able to provide. I hope that you give us another chance to show you what we are capable of and how terrific our staff is. Thank you.

    Strike 1: Stood around aimlessly, waiting to be greeted by any staff then waited some more to roam around looking for a table to eventually be seated Strike 2: Expensive NY steak (aka. shoe leather) was effectively burnt on both sides by an allegedly 'award winning' chef Strike 3: Sound system was blaring on a untuned 'station' for 15 minutes without any of the wait staff recognizing the need to fix it.

    The food was outstanding and we loved the outdoor patio. We took advantage of happy hour 50% off discounts on bottled wine, bottled beer, and fresh oysters. Great deal! Loved the lobster mac n' cheese and halibut. Unfortunately service was slow at times and despite our waiter being very friendly, he failed to bring us a few items w/ out reminders. I really think this was due to a shortage of staff, which is common all over. Though I did forget my credit card after paying the bill and leaving and he kindly called me right away, allowing me to turn around and retrieve it before leaving town. Thank you! Overall a great place and I definitely would return in the future.

    Service was terrible. Half of our table got our food after 30 minutes of ordering and the other half got the food after 45 minutes from ordering. The kitchen had a meltdown and to make it worse, the server was rude about it. The manager came over and apologized and bought us drinks. The server could have fixed this as we are understanding about kitchen issues. She just needed to explain the situation and worked with us on the problem. She had no desire to even talk to us. Will not return and recommend others do not visit this establishment until they get their act together.

    Server was great. Food lacked flavor and presentation. My mother ordered a New York strip. Medium rare. It was so clearly medium. And when your steak is $40 it should be cooked correctly. Worst is the server took the steak back to the chef and the chef cut it down the center and cent the server back to tell us that’s medium rare when it still so clearly was not. Not only is that rude but the chef doesn’t understand or know what medium rare looks like.

    Went for a special occasion with family in town. Had been here before so knew it was good. Everything that followed was a complete disaster. Food came after a long wait and out of order, starters came late for some and others were served 15-20 apart from each other, 3 of the main dishes were incorrect in some way. After a main course failed to arrive at all and waiter oblivious to the mistake we asked for check and left as quickly as possible. Bill was incorrect but one meal was comped so we just decided to pay it and be done.

    We were seated before our reserved 5 p.m. time (we got there early), by our server Miles. He greeted us at the Host Stand and welcomed us to choose any table we fancied. We chose an outside table in the corner, and enjoyed our meal there very much. We shared the Caesar Salad to start; one of us had the Fish the other the Scallops ... all were great. Miles was friendly and attentive, and we felt he was glad we were there. We'll go there again. Great job Miles and the Mermaids & Cowboys crew in the back!

    The wait staff did their best, but the food was not good. I ordered shrimp pasta and received the pasta with no shrimp. 15 minutes later, I was given a side plate with three shrimp and told that they forgot to add them. Beyond that, the prices were very high and the quality of the entire party’s meals were far below what we’re used to. Especially for that area of La Jolla.

    Great night for jazz and dinner. The salmon and coconut rice was very good and the staff were friendly. I gave 4/5 stars as there seemed to be a shortage of staff. The wait to be seated and for our entrees to be ordered was a bit long.. and there wasn’t a crowd. I’d definitely return. Perhaps next time the service will be a bit quicker.

    Loved this place! My family loved it so much they wanted to go two nights in a row. The second night-- all the staff remembered us & was sooo kind and fun. They made us feel like family & really took care of us. I would say best oysters & atmosphere in town.

    Ambiance was great. Our waiter, not great. Gave us no attention food took over an hour to get to our table. We asked for bread to hold us over after it had been so long, he forgot the bread and when he did eventually bring it we got charged. We ordered the mermaid 3lb $150 lobster and three steaks and he still gave us very poor service: other staff members apologized. The lobster was not worth the cost— very chewy and seemed over cooked. Steak ordered medium rare was also served medium well and waiter showed no concern when it was wrong, even after we waited over an hour for the food. Another gentleman came out and fixed the problem immediately and the new steak sometime came out in ten minutes when the others took an hour and twenty. Wouldn’t go back again.

    We were overall disappointed with our experience here. Our waiter was inattentive to details (did not ask how we wanted our steak cooked, brought an app out with the mains) and the food was also lack luster. You can absolutely find better elsewhere for the price.

    Our server and the host were both lovely. Everyone worked together with a smile. Food was great. The chef even stopped over to our table to check on us. Overall a great experience.
