Food always satisfying. Service not good. Took over 20 minutes for apps to arrive (after the table next to us who were seated 5 minutes after us). Our entrees then arrived while we we only half way through our apps. No acknowledgment from the food runner or our server, even when they cleared away our uneaten apps lest our entrees get cold.
The food isn't as good as it once was. This used to be one of my favorite spots, however, the prices have gone up and the food has gone down. Their charcuterie boards are VERY disappointing. My husband and I are sad that one of our favorite date spots has changed for the worst.
Great place for a date night or night out with friends. Very cool vibe inside with interesting decor. No other place in San Diego quite like it! Their Moscow Mules are the best in town!
Great service and ambience for a date. We went early so can't comment if things get wild late in the evening, but is not what I was looking for.
I wish there were more food options but the fries can hit the spot when in need of a snack.
The octopus was great but tiny portion.
Great late night find. Food and drinks were delicious and the setting was intimate and stylish. Looking forward to showing it off to more friends visiting from out of town.
The food was great and different and the cocktails were yummy! It was not necessarily quiet but it had a good vibe.
Such a cute place and the wine with the cheese plates were delish. It was so nice having a date night there.
Get The Burger!
I love the Starlight...I've been countless times with both large groups and small and the service and food has always been outstanding.
The pricing on the menu is great, esp for such a nice atmosphere and the food is always fresh and locally sourced. The cocktails are really excellent too...and I love that the cocktail menu changes with the season. They also have a great patio in the back that's nice for summer dining.
And since it's 21 and over only, we never have to sit by any screaming kids! Added bonus!
Foodwise I recommend the fries with aioli (YUM...thin, crispy, salty...), the burger and the Jidori Chicken. They've become my standbys even though I've enjoyed a lot of other items on the menu.
STARLITE is my go to spot for dates. love their happy hour, decor and vibe
We've dined here previously and always enjoy the food, service, and ambiance. Tonight was stellar.
It's was a good date night with good food
Arrived for our reservation at 7pm (Tuesday night). No one was there to great and seat us. The bar tender noticed the people piling up by the door and responded with pretending like he was busy with cleaning cocktail glasses. Once we were seated our server took our order. She forgot to put in our appetizer so once the entrees arrived and she had realized the small mistake, she disappeared for the rest of our dinner.
The food was great though! I send my heart out to the chef and cooks back there, doing a great job, while the servers and other FOH are busy not giving a f*ck.
Great time at New Years. Perfect size crowd and menu for New Years......
Perfect atmosphere for a date, highly recommended! They have great tasting mules and, to make it even better, they are served in freezing cold heavy-duty copper mugs. TIP: ask for a spicy mule, they are awesome!
Loved the food and the service. Because of the very modern decor with hard stone decor and the nearness of the cocktail bar the noise level was a bit high for us but that would be my only reservation about this restaurant.
Go here for drinks, not food. The service is very problematic, both at the front of the house and the waitstaff. Food came out incorrectly, and very late. Despite having a reservation, our table was taken away from us and given to another party. Just sit down at the bar, order a drink and have dinner somewhere else.
Wonderful night. Food and drink tremendous, service superb, ambience perfect.
Very dark interior.
We have eaten here several times and it never disappoints! We like to try their cocktails and specials - this time it was a pad Thai with lots of large shrimp and chicken too - delish. Also they always have great staff!
