Prepkitchen - Little Italy
Book your next event with us
Prepkitchen use to be one of my favorite places in San Diego. The last few times though, the food and the service have been far from the Prepkitchen of a few years ago. This is true for the La Jolla and the SD location. They still make a good drink.
The food was ok . The service was bad . We were celebrating a couple of Birthdays. I mentioned that when I made the reservation.
They did not acknowledge The b-day.
The restaurant itself is really cute . I wish my experience was better .
I went here to celebrate my birthday, recently, and overall, I have nothing but great things to say about my experience at Prepkitchen. I enjoyed the relaxed, yet refined, atmosphere of the restaurant. It was a great mix of casual and trendy. I ordered the honey miso glazed salmon, fries, and bacon wrapped dates. All were delicious! The thing that really won me over was the great service. Our server was understanding and patient even when most of the party was late by about 30-40 minutes. Our server was attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed without being overbearing. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
Great service provided by Tyler.
We loved our meal and the service was amazing. Highly recommend the Brussel sprouts!
Food is limited and mediocre. Prices are too high and the additional surcharge (I.e, 3.69%) for the rise in the minimum wage is far too high.
Great service from Megan. Food was excellent. Kicking myself for not having been eating here regularly, that’s going to change as of now!
I really enjoyed every menu item- I am a vegetarian and was able to find three things on the menu to eat and I ordered them all. All three were delicious including the butternut squash soup.
Drinks took forever to come. We didn’t order a second because we didn’t think they would be out before we would be done. Water glasses sat empty for 45 minutes until I had to ask someone to fill them.
The food tasted like cafeteria food. Had I paid 1/3 of the cost I would have still been disappointed.
We arrived late for our reservation and the hostesses and wait staff were kind about this. Our waitress was great, gave good recommendations. The food was quite good, my son's potatoes that came with this bacon scramble were AMAZING! I think there was an issue with the bar the morning we were there, the coffee we ordered was very watery (not a big deal), but it took 15-20 minutes to make another pot and our drinks from the bar were VERY slow. I would have cut them a break for that if the place had been busy, but it wasn't. All-in-all, an nice, hip, tasty place to eat!
Service and I’ll Beyonce were great, little hard to hear with the noise level and they weren’t even full. Food was OK, although not sure I would come back for a repeat visit.
Had a great time food was excellent
Horrible food. By far the worst restaraunt I’ve been to in San Diego. Menu is minimal and extremely overpriced. Food was on par with a grade school cafeteria. Don’t waste your time, money or taste buds.
The food was ok, for the price it wasn’t great. Our table was close to the tables next to us and we were rushed to order our food and pay our bill.
The food has really gone downhill. There is a new cook and it's not even close to being the same. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants. Not going back.
We selected this restaurant to meet out of town guests. I have been there for drinks and appetizers but not dinner. Our server was very accommodating and the food and ambiance were perfect. Everyone was pleased. We will be back!
Poor waiting service. One persons food showed up 15 mins before anyone else. Then mine showed up 15 mins after the rest of the group got theirs and started eating. Was not a great experience for a special occasion. They also didn’t tell us they couldn’t split the check more than 5 ways before the meal. Wasn’t the worst place ever but certainly won’t be going back.
Good for special occasions. Expensive but good food.
Great spot in Little Italy! The food and drinks were exceptional.
Great meal. We’re able to accommodate a party of 8 with a last minute reservation (about 2 hours notice). Brussels sprouts and dates were loved by everyone.
Was actually there with my son and my mother. It was great and they had a kids menu available
Ordered vegetarian pasta was told roasted vegetables with lemon garlic oil. Basically hard carrots, 1/2 of one brussel sprout sauce so bland not even black pepper and parmesan could save this dish.
The place is awesome. Really nicely built and put together. The atmosphere is fun and the layout super helps with this. Our server Matt was SUPER friendly and on top of things (let’s hear it for Matt!). The drinks were really top class, really sexy-man whiskey cocktails. The dates wrapped in bacon were unreal - I had them again after my main. The crispy tuna is also BANGIN. You should totally go here.
The food was good but small portions
I used to love this place. Went last weekend, they took 30 mins to bring out the coffee, the table was really wobbly, water and coffee was constantly spilling everywhere. The food was brought out cold- so sad.
Love, love, love Prep Kitchen! Great food, exceptional service and overall great dining experience. Thank you Prep Kitchen for always making our experience the best. Highly recommend.
The staff was overwhelmed by the influx of customers at one time post Women’s March. It took a VERY LONG TIME to get water. Then our drinks. And then our food :(
We love Prepkitchen, but this experience was not great. The old fashioned was overly sweet and mediocre at best. The pasta Bolognese was bland and juvenile. The smore dessert we had was good, but lacked graham cracker, so not sure what kinda smore was being emulated. I don't know that we'll necessarily be back after this last visit. There are just better options in Little Italy.
Food was good but came out at different times for our party of four. Service was good to start but then he got a full section and we were forgotten about. Drinks came out at different times when ordered at the same time. Waited about 30-40 for our bills and then they were ran on the wrong cards after being split.
It was good - the food, the service - but nothing special. I felt the dinner entrees were pretty small for what I was paying. No plans to go back anytime soon when there are so many other options to try.
Hostess yelled from above how to operate elevator below to our handicap guest. Slow service. Food not as good as in the past
We were there on a VERY quiet Monday night. The food was excellent, as always, and the service was attentive yet unobtrusive. My only complaint was the music...too loud (this is a problem everywhere we dine), and the choice of genre was much more appropriate for a club or bar. Maybe because it was so quiet, the staff wanted something catchy and repetitive, but it made our foursome want to scream after two hours of it!
Service always friendly and attentive!
Food is great!
The restaurant was so cold it overshadowed the rest of the experience. The food was okay—nothing special. The service was fine.
We went to PrepKitchen for NYE and it was PACKED and crazy! We only ordered light things (3 apps, 3 salads and one entree for four people)... one of our apps never showed up (we cancelled it). All the rest of the food came out at the same time except my salad, which didn't come out for a while, it took so long that I actually started eating my husband's salad.
We also ordered a second bottle of wine and the server put it on the table but didn't open it and left. This was after all of our glasses were empty. Seems like why bring it if you're not going to open it?
That being said, it was really busy and our server said the kitchen was behind and so we don't blame her, I just think the dinner could have gone more smoothly.
Food we had was all great! Wish we could have gotten our ahi app because we love it!
Good services! Good food! Good all around.
This place is great! Definitely make a reservation. Staff was super friendly and the food was great. Order the meatball!
Incredibly accommodating for my friend's engagement brunch! They not only went above and beyond to make it a special occasion, the food and service were wonderful the whole brunch.
