Started with the bacon wrapped dates, very much enjoyed the green curry scallops, and loved the Horse & Buggy cocktail! Actually, even the water was pretty amazing. Yum! Check it out ASAP - and be sure to visit the bathroom to get a little extra chuckle & glimpse into the establishment’s personality.

We often go to Prep Kitchen in Little Italy and have had some very enjoyable times there. A few evenings have been spoiled by other guests - especially the noise when a large table of people insist on shouting at each other to be heard. The bar service and cocktails are excellent, the food is always good, and the service is friendly and attentive. Highly recommended...but please refrain from being one of the loud guests who spoil it for everyone else!

The food did not meet my expectations based on the previous reviews. It was tasty BUT NOT amazing. Service was really good and very friendly. Overall it is a nice place but I will explore more places before coming back again in the future.

That Burger....Dear lord was it good!
Chicken wings had a great flavor as well.

We ate here a year ago when visiting San Diego and loved it. Food was fab and great vibe. But somehow, when we went back for a 2nd visit, it just wasn't the same. Food was OK, but nothing to rave about (although my dinner companion did rave about the burger which indeed looked great but I didn't order). Might have been an off night and I may consider trying again, but with all the new places popping up in Little Italy and all of San Diego, there are too many other places to try out first. Sorry - I wanted to love you as much the 2nd time as I did the first!

Friendly and attentive service. Food is creative and good quality but menu and wine by the glass selections are too limited.

This was my third visit to PrepKitchen and again it didn't disappoint. There's always a fun, light hearted ambiance when we go here and food is so tasty.

We had a super helpful and friendly waitress; sensational food; and fun enjoying the lively ambiance. A top pick for a great Saturday night!

I've been coming to PrepKitchen for years - it's one of my favorite places to bring out of town visitors in the neighborhood. Our experience this past week, with my cousin and his daughter who were on their way to Hamilton that evening, was exceptional. Delicious food, but the service really went above and beyond. Our server gave us a complimentary salad and was incredible friendly and helpful. I would already be coming back, but even more so now!

Best brunch we can remember for both kids & adults. Service was impeccable. Super cool vibe with none of the obnoxiousness. Great view of little Italy.
