    The food was good. I ordered the crispy salmon which was tasty, but the skin was not at all crispy. My husband ordered short ribs which were very good. Service was great!

    We went to the easter brunch. It wasn’t very busy at all, but it took 15 minutes for someone to even come over to our table. Food was mediocre at best. Definitely not worth the fixed price. Will not be back again

    This restaurant makes you want to come back every morning. The staff of the most friendly people I’ve ever met in my entire life and the food knock your socks off. I never thought that wearing bunny ears would make me as happy as it did, even though my daughter thinks I am weird.

    Been wanting to try definitely will sit outside next time. The inside is very cold and stark. Lighting is way too bright definitely need some dimmers! Food was good not great, not a huge selection. Felt uncomfortable with the starkness. Everyone was very friendly so tyst was nice.

    To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. I wasted 200$ on a dinner date in which I was excited to be celebrating my one year anniversary only for us to be limited to a Valentine’s Day menu which made our stomach turn from the moment we started with our starters. Maybe if we were given the option to choose from either their regular menu or the special Valentine’s Day it would’ve made the 200$ worth it.

    a great neighborhood restaurant with solidly good food and professional service with a great attitude. it's a lovely room but i downgraded the ambience to 2 stars because there was no music playing, which gave entering a strange 'is this place open' feeling.

    Repeat visit on a Monday night. Unfortunately, there was a family with 2 very young children who were loud and would have been more suited to Chucky Cheese. I cant understand why the better restaurants allow this. The wait staff was nice. We were served by Abby last time who was outstanding. This group were nice but average. I had the salmon which was excellent. My wife had the shortrib which, she stated, was very dry. Things seemed to have changed since our last visit. The food not quite as good, the waitstaff not quire the same. Almost wonder if the ownership had changed. Overall, not a bad place but not outstanding.

    great neighbor hood spot with reliably good food and friendly service. the manager on duty was very friendly and helpful. nice playlist, relaxing environment. the low point is in the bar which is lit very brightly and doesn't have a bar vibe at all; also the banquet seating in bar is uncomfortable. overlit but nice patio.

    Nick and Gs is a hidden gem. Great drive there from Villa de la Valle. Nestled in a quaint neighborhood, super chill, classy environment. Romantic seating, personable service. Perfectly timed courses. Delectable cuisine and a divine dessert with coffee. Could have easily been over priced like most upscale downtown San Diego restaurants but it wasn’t which honestly was really refreshing. It felt well deserved of my time and dime.

    The only complaint we have is that we were rushed. Our salad came out with our soup. Then Our main course came out before we were done with our salad. It was disappointing on a date night we wanted to relax and chat. Next time we will request our food be spaced out. Thanks

    I used to really like eating here and have always gotten the Filet which was good but the potatoes were pretty bad. Not even sure what all was in that potato mix but not good! Also the mushroom demi glace sauce, I usually love, but it was too sweet. How about some good ole fashioned mash potatoes which always goes well with a Filet! Now on the fence with a recommendation to others.
