Everything was perfect. The food, the waitstaff, the ambiance was top drawer. We had a fantastic time. Can't wait to go back.
We had never tried Starlite for Sunday Brunch. We had been there numerous times for late night dining. We had a group of 8 and it was wonderful. Can't recommend it enough.
Still a favorite restaurant after a few years of going there and other places. Staff was amazing and so was the food. Great job staying constant when everything else seems to be changing for the worse.
wonderful food, dining environment, attentive and great wait staff and outstanding manager Roy!!!!!!!! Second time here, will continue to come and bring friends each time!
WOW... the food and they drinks were all terrific.
The receptionist was pretentious and made the first impression of the place... Our waiter was very unfriendly and anytime I asked for anything he made a face like it was a huge hassle! They took forever to refill my water. The Mac n cheese was amazing, the burger was good but needed some sauce? And the fries were horrible and saugy with greese! Overall a mediocre experience. Parking was also horrible!!! Take a cab.
Excellent as usual! Their food is so creative and fresh and reliable!One of our most favorite restaurants!!
Don't let the outside fool you; inside, Starlite is gorgeous, and the food is even better. Inventive drinks and a good selection of vegetarian brunch options will keep us coming back. Best veggie benedict I've ever had! Highly recommended.
Too bas it was raining when we went, we didn't get the full "starry" experience. Struggled a bit with the menu, and ended up eating two appetizers, but very much enjoyed overall. Husband and friend took the bourbon flight and had a blast. Thoughtful service. Will return.
The food is very good. The burger is truly amazing, one of the best I've had and I am a burger fan. It is a small place and it fills up quickly so recommend making a reservations.
Fantastic as always, Starlite never fails to delight.
Very cool menu, excellent service and outstanding specialty drinks!
Would definitely go back again, probably with a small group.
I wanted to like Starlite more than I did. I loved the decor and feel of the restaurant, but was turned off by the service. The waitress wasn't very helpful with the menu and just went through the motions. Her lack of a personality and rudeness put a damper on the evening. The food was just ok. The burger was good, not great and the pasta special was way over salted. Highlights were the special cocktails and the ice cream sandwich desert.
The set up of this place is great. Loved kicking off my birthday here for a few drinks before the night began. Would definitely come back!
Great cocktail list, ambiance, excellent food & service!
We loved the food and vibrant bar scene
The food was really good with excellent ingredients well and simply prepared. I save 5 star ratings for meals of greater complexity. My Jidori chicken was as good as any chicken I have ever eaten.
My wife liked it so well that she asked that we return next week for her birthday dinner and we will, bringing some friends.
A friend tells me the patio bar/dining area is wonderful but I didn't know about it until after our visit.
The prices are very reasonable for such high-quality food. Salads and soups around $6 and entrees at $20 or less. Several wines around $30 and lots of by-the-glass options at $7-10. The list is eclectic. We have dinner out 3 times a week and the only restaurants I rate higher than Starlite cost a lot more.
The experience was good, the worst part about it was my food. I ordered the fish of the day which was swordfish and I couldnt even eat it all it was so fishy. The server was efficient, she just seemed really bored/boring.
Starlite is a one of a kind artisanal Restaurant/bar. I love the Starlite Mule! The eggplant is not to be missed. The ambiance. Sitting at the bar with you bar tender facing you is a very innovative idea.
I had my family birthday dinner here and it was a fantastic evening. The food and the service were outstanding! I was here once before and it was equally wonderful. Love this place!
We took friends to "Brunch" at Starlight on Sunday 9/23/12. It was one of the worst experiences I have had dinning out. Two of us ordered Eggs Benedict...The english muffins were so hard that we had great difficulty cutting them with a knife. One person ordered the "desert waffle" It came cold and also very difficult to cut with a knife. The other person had a burger and politely said it was fine. We were seated upstairs and had to continually bat the flys away. The music was so loud that we could not really talk to each other. What a disappointment! I had heard that the food was great and read that on YELP also...wrong,wrong,wrong. Don't go!
Beautiful inside, food is interesting and flavorful. Overall, a very fun place with great food.
Eggs benedict for brunch was quite good and they serve a mean bloody mary. I'd mostly recommend them for their dinner menu which is always outstanding.
I love this place. It is quiet, and romantic. The food is alway amazing. This was my 4th time here and every time I am blown away by the food and service. Great desert too!
My first breakfast in a weeklong visit to San Diego. Sunday brunch was great, exclnt service, a great start to my vacation. I'll go back again to check it out after dark...
this place can do no wrong. serious cocktails, great local food, and a downright swanky ambiance.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. The place is amazing, the service is great, everyone there is very friendly. And the food is the best. They don't have a very big menu but it still takes me a while to pick something because everything looks so good. Either way, no matter what you decide to eat, you can't go wrong. There is also some vegetarian options.
Server was not great.
Talked us OUT of several menu items.
What? Who does that? I'm sure the Chef would be thrilled.
Don't think I'll go back.
Server and bartender in the back seemed to only have time for very hip, young drinkers.
Loved the outdoor patio but didn't love that smokers were there too.
love this place! great drinks - food is even really good. I asked for the octopus appetizer as an entree & they served it on a bed of salad - very nice!
Good food and drink selection.
Starlite was delicious! I think I had the best french fry I've ever had in my entire life! Overall, the place was quiet, but was relaxing and all of our food was great!!
Starlite - awesome. The melon salad was unique and tasty. The flatbread with stone fruit and goat cheese, divine. And the Moscow Mule never disappoints.
Our waitress was great but the host could have been a little more friendly. He acted like seating us was an inconvenience.
Food was inspired and delicious. The service was impecable. Always have a great time at Starlite!
I love the Mules here and they have other great specialty drinks, but the food never really impresses me. Both myself and my boyfriend had the Chicken dinner dishes and it was delish, but the apps were just OK. The torta was bland and the salami board was just OK. The drinks are what keep me coming back.
Wait staff was ok, our particular waitress took what seemed like forever to provide a spoon that was not provided when our dinner was served--my date had the Seafood Stew--which, of course, necessitated a spoon for eating! Dinner was ok, I was actually disappointed in my burger/something was missing. I had ordered it on two previous occasions when I had dinner there and it was mouth watering on those occasions, but not on Friday night. Maybe a bit overdone? The fries were nothing to bang about, either, and another disappointment.
The embience was, of course, wonderful and hip. The I love the Starlite. It was a birthday celebration for me and, again, a bit of a disappointment, no freeby dessert.
I'll maybe go back, I really love it.
I would have rated this as very good except that my friend and I both decided on the burger because of the "carmelized onions." When our burger came there were no onions in sight. Bummer!!! The Risotto was awesome!
I really enjoy coming here to take out of town guests, catch up with some special friends, or spend a nice intimate dinner with a loved one. The food is always great, the ambiance is perfect (don't forget to check out the upstairs patio) and it is just the perfect little supper club.
Always an entertaining evening!
