Good food, nice wine, little noisy upstairs. I was disappointed that they didn’t acknowledge the whole reason we were there, which was a birthday dinner. When I made reservation I was asked if there was a special occasion, also when we arrived the host asked who’s birthday it was, I just assumed they would bring her a dessert or something.....oh well.
Always love this restaurant, however we were seated in the “party room” and our quiet, romantic night out didn’t happen. Not sure why they would seat a party of 2 in that space.
Nice view from the rooftop dining room. Food was better than average, not spectacular. Bar was very good.
Great restaurant. Our reservation was early so we got a wonderful table with an ocean view. It fills up later. The service was outstanding from the reception desk, to being taken to our table to the attentive service of our waiter Brett. The food was awesome. Prices are moderate.
Sat out on the patio with ocean views. The salmon and beet salad was delicious. My friends had the mussels and fish sandwich. Also excellent. Courteous staff was patient with our celebration!
The food was flawless. However, we dined on V-day so the service was a bit on the slow side.
Love this place. Always have and always will. The new Renos are great and some fun additions to the menu too. Amanda and Dan The Man do a great job running this place :)
Fantastic dinner...The Caymus 2014 Cab even better...great easy going place in Del Mar
Sbicca is consistently putting out great food. I never have to worry about what I am ordering as it is all good. I had an excellent Cosmo with fresh lime instead of lemon and it was perfectly crafted and chilled. We shared a chopped salad and that was very tasty and a good size portion for two to split. They split it in the kitchen. Seasoned steak on lettuce cups was a great starter. Just enough spice to give it heat and make it interesting. We also split the double pork chop, which I used to be able to eat by myself (!) and it was flavorful and very juicy and tender. One of my favorites dishes. My only negative comment is that we were seated way up top and it was VERY cold to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a table of 8 near us and they were obnoxiously loud...for 3 hours. We were a table of 4 and it was near to impossible to carry on a conversation. Sort of ruined the evening for us.
They changed the menu, missed my favorite scallop dish. Bisque used to be exceptional but not so good.
Always been a Sbicca fan, but first time visiting after the re-model. We sat in the dining room upstairs. Loved the new decor! Great fireplace with some modern cement tiles and the private wine room looked great can't wait to do a dinner there. Food was amazing some new menu items and our server was the best! Very accommodating, especially in changing slightly menu items. The only thing that hadn't changed is the seating in the "hallway" which while dog friendly lacks ambiance.
The food was delicious and expertly prepared. Our server, Myles, was extremely courteous and attentive. We enjoyed our evening and will be back.
It was a wonderful culinary experience. The food and presentation were superb. The only criticism I would give it would be the lobster bisque. The Lobster Bisque was adequately tasty however it had a chalky finish that would almost suggest it was made from a powder or box. Also, lobster bisque is usually accompanied with tiny lobster chunks but there was none found to be found. The waiting staff was very attentive and accommodating. One suggestion I would give the waiting staff would be to not "Telegraph" their sense of urgency. As a server you may move with the sense of urgency(understandable because you have a job to do) however do not let your customers feel it because that can stress them out. Try to move with a "purpose in tranquility." Overall excellent dining experience.
Amazing The food and service were amazing.
First time visiting on a recommendation. Nice restaurant - much larger than initial impression. Sat upstairs in a very noisy room. Good food.. in fact very good. Problem was service.... we were party of four. Waiter was generally inattentive. When we noted other tables had come and gone while we were still waiting we finally asked our server what happened to our final course (dessert) and still waited another 15 minutes. No apologies given or explanation provided.
A different mentioned the restaurant had become too popular and they too had experienced spotty service.... not likely to return
