Lunch menu is small but adequate. A few gluten-free options would be great!

imaginative menu, results mixed - from excellent to mediocre; service was correct, dining room is well decorated but not inviting

Superb food , menu , presentation., friendliness, new decor and ambience.
Small critical comment from three regulars: some waiters call all women “Miss”. It’s not appreciated. While it’s better than “how are you guys?” , a simple “How are you?” works well for all ages, whether singles, married, widowed .

The Hostess could not find my OpenTable reservation even though I told her that "you called me to confirm yesterday". Her response was you didn't call "me".... She must have finally found it but I felt like she was about to turn me away with my 92 year old mom in tow on Christmas Day. After that everything was PERFECT! Greg was one of our waiters, my goodness he was fabulous. The meal was OUTSTANDING. I have been here before and have never had a bad meal. Truly a very lovely setting and place to eat or do Happy Hour!

The food was decent but not great for the price. It seems to have gone a bit downhill with time.

The food quality is over and above the norm even for laJolla.
The waiters are knowledgeable and their suggestions are spot on.

It was totally unacceptable that they did not disclose the special appetizer was 3.5x more expensive than the others. Very unethical.

A very nice dining experience. Service and food were exceptional. Nine Ten has always been a favorite but a few recent experiences missed the mark. Tonight was back to exceptional.

First time - met a longtime friend, perfect for good food and good conversation. Had the hamachi appetizer (wonderful!) and the salmon. Will definitely recommend to friends.
