Great food and drinks but terrible service. There was hardly anyone there but it took forever for our waiter to arrive and he was not very attentive during our meal. With all the choices of places to eat in the area you’d think the service would be spectacular.

Our server is the best! I forgot to get her name but she was very attentive and very nice. We ordered the breakfast pizza and it is good but not exceptional, it was just okay. The avocado toast is also average so for the price I think it is quite expensive for a basic avocado toast, much better if they put smoked salmon and mozarella cheese. The crepe is good but again nothing special that will set it apart from the others. But the ambiance is really nice and sophisticated.

Failed at Covid awareness. Failed completely to protect this diner from Covid exposures. Our table on the sidewalk was 1-2 feet from passing unmasked public and next to the menu board and hostess station. We asked for a table away from busy areas. My food and face were exposed to every passing public passersby.

We have Sunday brunch and Saturday Happy Hour drinks there every time we stay at the hotel.

Friendliest restaurant in the Gas Lamp district.

Marissa and Nam were excellent servers-professional and experienced.

Daniella (Food and Beverage Manager) always comes to our table to check in with us. She seems to know many of the customers.

You can tell the entire staff treat each other like family and are very accommodating to their customers.

Go to restaurant for us each time we are in San Diego.

This review is written during a time when restaurants are open but all seating must be outside or open air. We have eaten here before and the food is delicious. I has the Waygu skirt steak and it was cooked to perfection. We started with the squash blossoms which are always a hit. The tables outside are nice and the weather beautiful so it was a great atmosphere. We waited a long time for service and even longer for food - not sure if staffing is difficult at the moment but it was well beyond a comfortable wait. While we were there, a rally was taking place, it was a Yoga for BLM, they walked down the street on the other side of the barriers from our table. It was peaceful and was fun to feel like a part of the action. However, if you like to avoid those types of events, keep an eye out for rally info and times. The participants were in very close proximity to tables of outdoor diners from all of the restaurants in the area.

The food was amazing! I ordered the local catch which was salmon. My girls ordered the chicken, pasta dish, and eggplant dish which I tasted all and they were fantastic as well. The serving sizes were kinda small. I had to pull through McDonalds after for a lil snack lol. As it was last call at the restaurant and the dessert menu wasn't appealing to any of us. Overall I would go back here, next time id get an appetizer with the meal and plan a place after for dessert.

Our group of five went to eat dinner on a Saturday during covid when all seating is outdoors and Provisional had a very nice and welcoming atmosphere. The food and service were equally excellent. Our table shared a pepperoni pizza for appetizer and that was very delicious!! The chicken and orzo was an excellent dish, as was the seabass (catch of the day) on top of risotto. I had The Green Machine which was super yummy! Nam was our waiter and he couldn't have represented The Pendry any better than he did. We will be back because of him. And the food. And the atmosphere. Bravo!

Considering the Corona restrictions i.e. outdoor dining the experience was fine. The Halibut special was delicious. The service was very good. The outdoor experience not bad. There was appropriate social distancing between us and other guests and pedestrians passing by.

On vacation in San Diego and just thought we’d try this place in the Gaslamp district. It was medium to high priced leaning toward the vegan side. Our entrees were very good but the dessert was so delicious! I’d recommend it.

We shared the veal meatballs which were delicious! I had the vegan bucatini which was delicious but kind of bland. My friend has the sausage bucatini and it was amazing - so flavorful. The other friend had the mahi fish sandwich and he really enjoyed it. Ambience is so cool! Service was amazing. I wish I remembered her name, blond, middle 40s. I can’t wait to go back for dinner..
