    The service was slow and the appetizers were overpriced considering the portions and quality. my party ordered the scallops, which did not taste fresh, the smoked chicken chipotle rigatoni, which lacked smokiness and chipotle flavor, and the mushroom bolognese, which was under seasoned. the only star of the show was the broccolini which had a great garlic butter flavor.

    I was in town and stayed up the street at the Hard Rock Hotel. I met my son for brunch there. First time for the both of us. The service was excellent. The food was generous and great. The ambiance was energetic and not so loud. Our server(s) was attentive and nice. I will go again.

    We loved this place. Missed our reservation down the street and quickly looked on Open Table for a last minute rezi before the play. This was open. We loved it when we walked in; the ambience was great. Ordered the carpaccio app which was amazing. I had the short rib with Parmesan polenta-it was fantastic. Also had the cocktail with gin and blackberry. It went down so smoothly- could have had 4. Highly recommend this place. Go and try it out.

    This visit was disappointing. The pizzetta was bland. The crust and toppings were unremarkable; it did not taste homemade. My colleague's cannelloni was good, but a very small portion. My coworkers were not impressed by the bone marrow butter. The restaurant is beautiful however, in a lovely room with two-story ceilings and glass. The open kitchen is an impressive centerpiece. This would be a great place to get a cocktail.

    I eat out 5 days a week (for work and business) and this was the worst meal I have had in the last 5 years. Truly horrific. The meal was comped by the manager, which was truly the only right thing to do, but I will be hard pressed to return. Hopefully for the Pendry brand, something will be done to correct the service and food quality at what used to be a great restaurant.

    Nice place with amazing flavors! Staff are so down to earth and super helpful. 5 course dinner chef's choice was amazing! It was like eating a Van Gogh painting; textures and flavor one would normally not put together but it all worked. Wine selection is also 5 out of 5. Had the wine paring with the dinner and it an absolute master piece. The chef is a true master of his craft. If you go check out the vending machine on the side entrance for a cool surprise 😉

    When I went before the waiter was very attentive and asked if we were celebrating anything and made the whole experience over the tip. This time is was impersonal-my order wasn’t cooked correctly and I had to go to the bar to get a water refill as I couldn’t locate our waitress or her assistant.

    Update: a manager reached out to me 4 days ago via email to call or email them. I called the number and it just rang and rang. I followed up with an email and no response. 4 days ago. That speaks volumes to me. I have been here several times. Today was terrible. Went before Padres game. Waited 45 min for food. Never came. Got up and left. Told manager. She did nothing. Never again!

    Food was lovely but they sat me outside on a cold night with no heater so I was shivering a lot until I had to go back to my hotel room and get a sweater. There was also a delay on my first course and they dropped my dessert course. Also they kept forgetting to give me the water I ordered. It was worth the wait because it’s one of the best desserts I’ve ever tasted. I don’t know if it was a bad night or anything but definitely a nice treat but maybe just a bad night for service and in the kitchen.

    My husband and I were in San Diego for business and some vacation. We had eaten at a couple of places recommended by our hotel and been appalled by the bad food. Then found Provisional Kitchen on our own. What a delight! Great service and creative, tasty food. We had a starter of Meyer lemon ricotta on focaccia, mains of roasted chicken and pappardelle with bolognese sauce, and two desserts. Servings sizes were reasonable, ingredients fresh. We may go back again before we leave for home!

    It was my daughter’s 18th birthday and wanted to go to a nice restaurant. Provisional was perfect! Our waiter (forgot his name) was very professional and courteous and didn’t made our experience special. He is Vietnamese but raised in France. Love the accent! The food was delicious and will definitely come again for special occasions. I like the modern decor and atmosphere!

    I liked Provisional a lot. It was a great date night location that wasn’t too formal, but not too casual either. Very pretty interior. The food was delicious, but the portion size was on the smaller size for what you pay. Staff was attentive and I appreciated the frequent water refills. My glass was never empty. I’d recommend this place for a simple date night where you can dress up a little and have a nice evening out in downtown.
