Sbicca - Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Being relatively new to the area, we decided to take advantage of restaurant week and try some restaurants we haven't been to yet. We made our reservation expecting a good dinner based on all of the positive reviews, but we were floored at how awesome it turned out to be. Cori F. was one of the nicest people we've ever met (she seriously offered the coat off of her back because it was a little chilly when the wind blew) and the food and wine were even better than we could have imagined. We will definitely be returning for dinner again soon.
Came here for restaurant week. I felt like their pricing and menu really embraced the concept. Great value and reasonable variety of choices. We enjoyed our meal and service. Plus we went on a day with half price wine, and selected a very nice wine we otherwise would have passed over.
We had a reservation on Christmas Eve. We arrived right on time for our reservation and were told that we would be seated within 15 min., "at most". It was cold outside and we had our young kids with us. After about 25 min., when I asked, I was told by the woman at the reception that we would be seated immediately. She disappeared. After another five minutes I asked a man now at the reception about our table and told we would be seated "soon". After another 5 min. we finally were taken to a table. There seemed to be numerous guests arriving after us who were previously seated despite our reservation. Towards the end of the dinner, the woman at the reception who had disappeared reappeared and offered us a complimentary dessert as an apology for the delayed and chaotic seating. The food was great and ambiance fine. We appreciated the complimentary dessert. All this said, I don't think we are out of line with our disappointment with how we were treated with regards to being shown to a table. Sbicca management, you can do better. Please do.
Had a great experience being my first time. We were celebrating 3 friends birthdays and took advantage of the no corckage fee on Monday night. Waitress was great and food was amazing, only good things to say and will be back. Great value for ambiance, food and service.
Came here for a quiet evening with a friend, reservations made 2 weeks in advance. Ended up seated in the upstairs room which was cold, not well decorated, and next to a large, very noisy table whose occupants screeched and loudly laughed, making it impossible to hear my companion. I suppose we should have asked to move, but we already had our food and I would have preferred that our server offered to move us. Food was OK, service was decent although not especially great, but I will hesitate to return to this restaurant due to the issues above.
We had a wonderful Sunday lunch at Sbicca's. The food was very yummy. I had Spinach and Avocado Eggs Benedict and ate every bite on my plate. The Mimosa's were tasty as well. The service was perfect - not too little - not too much. We sat on the patio and it was very pleasant.
