Service seemed a bit slow. Others around us with different wait persons were being waited on and getting their orders in much more quickly. Other than that, the food was delicious, as always!
Superb service, exceptional cuisine and atmosphere that exceeded my expectations.
Thank you for your review, we really appreciate it and hope to see you again soon.
Food, service, location all outstanding. Chilean sea bass and Scallops were highlight of the meal.
Great special occasion dining or good happy hour small bites
Thank you for your review!
A wonderful place to experience fine dining, exquisite food options, and a beautiful view when dining outside.
Thank you for your review!
Happy birthday Nick
Beautiful view, delicious crab cake app, scallops were perfect. Great wine list and Thursday half priced bottles made it even better
Thank you so much for your review, we hope to see you again soon!
Ambiance and service was fine. Relaxing and a nice breeze with outdoor seating. Cocktail drinks were very good. Disappointed that my fish was uncooked and tough and their new menu pricing is charging for a roll & butter.
All in all, a very desirable location.
Great food and service. The social distancing design was comfortable and made us feel secure.
Thank you for your review!
Excellent as Always! Great food, great wait staff. Always look forward to dinner out here.
Thank you for your review!
Food was ok and very pricey for what we got.
I loved the setting, the food was innovative, and uniquely presented, and delicious! Patio dinning, socially distanced, in a creative way. One suggestion, add a few ceiling fans, it got a little warm while the sun was setting...
Beutifual view but we weren't luck enough to sit by the window. The restaurant semi-outside patio as pretty full on Friday night. The seabass was excellent.
Anniversary dinner at the place we got engaged. Very nice. Excellent meal, wonderful view and service. Ten out of Ten.
Thank you for your review! We are so thrilled you enjoyed another special night with us! Happy anniversary!
Beautiful view.. service was slow. Food was just ok. Was hoping it was going to live up to expectations. Understanding everyone is struggling during COVID I hope they can recover
So delicious and a beautiful ambiance. Masks all around plexiglass separations between tables.

Great experience, table overlooking the ocean, dividers between tables, outstanding food and good portion sizes. It was worth the drive from Orange County

This restaurant is one of the better places in Del Mar as to the view of the ocean coupled with an excellent menu that meets the needs of virtually all those that chose to have dinner
and this unique place.

One of the families favorite restaurants. Even with the current government mandates we just enjoyed great dinner with family.
Thank you so much for your review and lovely comments! It makes us so happy to hear we are one of your favorites! We hope to see you again soon.
We loved the Branzino (fish) and the Calamari with the Vietnamese dipping sauce yum!!!! We had a fantastic table for 2 front of patio with plexiglass partition from diners next to us, with beautiful ocean view with sun already set still glowing . We thought it was amazing!!!
Server was amazing! The restaurant was out of two main entrees-sea bass and ahi and the grilled octopus appetizer. This was so disappointing! We sat by the wall and were attacked the entire time by mosquitos. We rushed through dinner because of this. Our appetizers were never brought to the table. Our server was very apologetic and gave us a free dessert.
Food was really good. My husband was grumpy because he didn't get his rolls with his dinner which was unfortunate.
We were seated promptly, our waiter was knowledgeable and the food terrific quality and good sized portions.
Best you can hope for in Covid times.
Overall, the experience was great. I gave 4 stars overall because the food pairing for the entree was not available and my husband had to pick something else to pair with his food. We were there to celebrate his 50th birthday.
The seafood (fish dishes) were A+
Such a great place. The wait staff were right on us with water, and were very pleasant. Our poor server wasn’t as familiar with the wines as my uncompromising bride, but she was the essence of sweetness besides. The entreés were great. The halibut was really remarkable.
I would STRONGLY recommend the place.
We had a cackling table of ladies just adjacent to us. Remarkable how some voices achieve a piercing audio frequency.
Great place! Don’t miss this gem.
Amazing service and great food and value.
Thank you for your review. We really appreciate it and hope to see you again soon.
Great food! Sea bass was incredible, as were the Brussel sprouts!
Thank you for your review, we appreciate it! Good choices with your order - our favorites! We hope to see you again soon.
