We ate breakfast at the the Provisional. It wasn’t very busy on a Thursday so we were seated promptly upon arrival. The food was fantastic. We had some cold pressed juice (not fresh, they are pre-pressed bottles), fresh OJ, the Lox Benedict, and oatmeal. The food was fresh, coffee was hot, and the staff was friendly. Overall we had a good experience for breakfast.

Totally let down by the entire experience. Our meal wasn't anything to rave about. And the kitchen kept getting things out wrong or very late. Didn't like that we were asked 4 times if we got our 2nd course after we said we didn't and had been waiting for like 30 minutes for it. Yes the manager sent over some drinks but I couldn't drink them with the carbonation. Nice gesture but not everyone can have carbonation. I order the filet mignon and added truffles and they didn't come on it so I had to flag down a busboy because our server wasn't around much. All around because I paid for a NYE experience that was very high end I felt like I got mediocre service and good that was so hot or miss some things were ice cold and just inedible. I should've just eaten at a slice of pizza or something. Totally not impressed and I will not be back.

This meal was the worst we have ever experienced in terms of poor value and awful flavors. 4 out of the 5 courses were cold (one was supposed to be) . We were excited to splurge on a fun NYE meal and were deeply disappointed . I would say stick to breakfast as whoever designed this menu clearly never sampled the dishes. I guess $150 per person wasn't enough, they topped it off with a $50 service charge. This was a shameful NYE ripoff!

We went for Christmas dinner. Our waiter Nam was superb. Haven’t had service this professional since going to Europe (To be fair he was French). First course my husband chose lobster bisque. Bowl was presented very hot and soup was poured into bowl, nice presentation. I had a salad with lettuce, cranberries, feta, shallots with a fruity type dressing. Very tasty but a bit salty. We both had duck breast for our entrees. Served medium rare sitting on a bed of farro. We requested a different accompanying vegetable & were accommodated. The duck was in a cherry sauce & seasoned beautifully. For dessert my husband got peppermint cheesecake made with marscapone and a gingerbread rust. I had the Basque cake. Chocolate with figs & other fruits. Very rich & delicious. Lovely experience!

I am not over-stating that you can do better at a souped-up Denny's. I took my family to the restaurant for Christmas. The bill for three people was $398.00, which is about what we would spend at Georges, or other nice restaurant. HOWEVER, what an absolute disappointment!

First of all, the server was good, and we appreciated him. The manager was not happy or attentive, and walked around like she didn't want to be there, at all.

The Food: Wow, how HORRIBLE. I ordered filet mignon and the two ordered the duck. The filet was old, cold and over-cooked. They do NOT know how to cook a steak, and they ruined that steak...shame! I ordered Med-Rare, and I received two small pieces of steak which were WELL DONE and medium. The filet was obviously old and fished out of some freezer somewhere. I eat a lot at very good steak restaurants, and this was like getting caught hungry at 2am and needing to go to a Denny's. It was supposed to come with potatoes, but I only found a couple of potatoes that were obviously reheated and cooked some time ago. The sauces...no...not good, at all. Before the meals came, we ordered lobster bisque. This was an absolute joke. The lobster was chewy and overcooked, and the bisque was WATERY, unflavored and very thin. It was also LUKE WARM. I mean, what a disgrace.

The duck was oily and too fatty, and was not cooked correctly. The duck was tough and chewy. I have had duck at $45/plate, and it was 10x better than this. They do not know how to prepare duck. All of the food was bland, old and watered down/thinned out. The desserts...LOL. So stupid (the pecan cake was good, the rest was like getting something from a cheap buffet)!

For for more than $130/plate, we expected a great dinner, but this was entirely ridiculous. Do not waste your money, time or corrupt memories with your family by going to a fraud of a restaurant. Skip this restaurant as an idea...it will not work. The chef obviously has no standards.

Christmas prix fixe was a real delight! Veal meatball was one of the most delicious items I’ve ever had. My wife adored her perfectly prepared salmon. Basque cake was surprisingly tasty.

Had Christmas Day dinner. All the food (and wine pairings!) were excellent. So was the service. Only issue we had was it wasn't very festive -- we were hoping for a bit more Xmas type feel. Plus, we had a table that was by the door and it was a bit cool. We asked for a table further into the restaurant, but we were told it was not available. Interesting because it wasn't used at all during our dinner...
We will go again for regular meal service -- food and servers were outstanding, so hoping the table/decor was just luck of the draw....

We had one of our best Christmas brunches here. Everything was wonderful staring with bottomless bottles of champagne, then breakfast pizza moving onto the egg Benedict to the finale of waffles with chocolate sauce. Delish. Our server, Adrianne was delightful and very attentive. Definitely a Restauant we will go back to when in San Diego.

The Pendry is absolutely extraordinary! From the time you walk in and are greeted, to when you say thank you, good bye- you are treated like a VIP. You can’t help but clean your plate every time. The Pendry is beautiful, delicious, and top notch chic. Our favorite place.

We enjoy going to the PJ and pancake party every year, the food is excellent. Servers were really busy and service was a bit slow. The only complaint is that it was freezing in the restaurant, likely out of necessity for COVID precautions with the front doors open. Other than that it was a really enjoyable experience for our family and our son loved getting to meet Santa. Would love to continue the tradition!
