Good food and great service
We just love the cozy atmosphere at Queenstown Bistro! You've done a great job of keeping things safe during Covid. Wish you had a a better tea selection, though, especially with cool weather on the way. We'll be back!
Have eaten here several times and this was an AWFUL experience. Did not even have a waiter come to our table for about 10 minutes. Then, had to ask for my drink literally 4 times before it came out after our food. Never received the food we ordered for my daughter immediately upon talking with the waiter. Just overall awful experience.
Needs more shading or misters. Otherwise, food was pretty solid and it was a nice enough experience.
I’ve now been twice during the pandemic and both times it was so amazing. Joe at the bar is where it’s at! He was fabulous! Great food, excellent service from the whole staff both times. Highly recommend!
The hummus starter is delicious! Found the quiche to be a bit salty for my taste. My daughter had the pot pie which she seemed to enjoy. Service was efficient (refills etc) but always felt rushed- I'm sure many tables to cover- but still I felt like I was bugging her if I asked for a straw or any thing.
You did a wonderful job with safe dining. Cozy atmosphere and delicious food. We’ll be back!
Great food! I ordered the lamb burger, very tasty.
Great food and server was awesome. They’ve done a great job with the space, but it’s still in small food court.
Amazing food! Will be back for sure. Try the lamb burger and the prosciutto burrata appetizer.
My husband and I regular spot to go to and as always the staff are very friendly. The place is small but cozy and we like that. We appreciate that they do recognized that we dined there often.
Great !!! Eat here every time I’m in San Diego.
First time I went I had a wonderful young lady waitress who is just fabulous. So I came back and this time I had a gentleman. He was wearing a mask so I can’t describe his face but he was about 510 and a little bit stocky. He was out in out rude. I won’t be coming back for a while
It was great
We had a great time at Queenstown. The food was excellent and the manager, Larry did an excellent job meeting all of our requests. Our good friend whose birthday we were celebrating couldn't have been any happier.
We had the hummus and burrata for apps and thoroughly enjoyed them. For the main dishes we had the lamb chops which were done to perfection along with the burger and the wedges which were both great.
Lastly the amazing dessert put us over the top. It was worth it. Thanks to the Queenstown staff for a great evening.
It’s in the middle of a outdoor shopping mall which I did not expect. It made it kind of hard to find.Other than that I thought the food was delicious, and our server was wonderful.
We can’t get enough of this place. The food is absolutely amazing. And, the service!!! The service from CJ, Kelsey and Jason is spectacular. They always make it an amazingly personal experience! ❤️
It’s a really nice location. The food was delicious and the service was very personal
Excellent food, beautiful location
Food was fabulous. Service was great. Absolutely love this restaurant. Please support them by dining on their beautiful patio.
Great Ambience. The curtain dividers made me feel secluded, which I loved. Our waiter was attentive. The food was delicious. There was some background noise from people passing by, but it wasn’t very loud.
Kelsey was incredible! Very accommodating. The decor is very quaint & they’ve come up with clever ways to make the restaurant COVID-safe. Our food came out quickly & was delicious. Very fair prices. Would definitely dine here again!
Love everyone there and Cj is amazing!
We love the service and the people and the food!
We love this little spot. Perfect spot to meet a girlfriend and share an appetizer or 2 and wine. The Burrata and Prosciutto is so fresh and delicious!
Nice location, good food. A little pricey though.
The team here is awesome - they really care about your meal, checking in on you to ensure everything's ok. They even brought over a doggie bowl of water four our puppy. This month's special was the chicken with avo and bacon and cheese. And the wedge fries are delicious. Had the steak/caesar salad as well. Good portions. No drama - just good food and good people.
The burgers are delicious here ! We started with the hummus plate that came with fresh veggies, also a great choice. There is a nice wine by the glass selection. Our server was Jason who attentive and a fun addition to our girl's night out! Our warm cookie and ice cream pan was the perfect ending to our celebration!
I am so glad they are open!
Food very good and staff very attentive. Making it work in a time of uncertainty.
Birthday Brunch was great, they’ve done an excellent job at keeping distance between patrons and minimizing contact.
Loved this gem right in the middle of UTC mall in La Jolla. Their were wonderful food choices and the servers were so attentive. Will definitely be back.
The rack of lamb and pretzel are a must.
The food is always outstanding in addition to the service.
We had great hamburgers , as always. Caitlyn, our server was so nice and attentive!! Great server!
The only thing I would rate them a four vs a five, is because tho we had a “reservation” for 6, our table was not ready. They had to push tables together to accommodate us. It was my daughters baby shower, and to be honest, the restaurant is small so maybe wasn’t the best place to have her party at? Other than that, our server was great-but our table sat with dirty dishes on it for a while. Food was excellent! Cute place, but like the little Italy location better.
First time at Queenstown Bistro, I loved my experience. My drink was delicious and staff was friendly and attentive. The Chicken Pot Pie was to die for!! I will definitely be going back.
Food was uneventful and the service, while not terrible, was nothing to write home about.
