    The bartender (I think his name was Elliot) was engaging and entertaining. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you very much.

    My cousins from Ireland were here visiting & staying Downtown San Dieho, so I research nearby places and Storyhouse Spirits had excellent reviews snd a nice variety of food in the menu.the drinks & food were delicious, excellent service snd not too noisy like a lot of places, so we could hear each other snd catch up. I recommend this place for a fun place to gather with friends, for a casual night out in Downtown San Diego. The only negative is paying $25.00 for parking & the homeless issue is pretty bad downtown these days.

    Nice little place near Petco, serves cocktails made with on-premises distilled spirits. The drinks are fairly imaginative and tasty, the food covers a number of basics - burgers, flatbreads, tacos - nicely. There is an open air style seating , not a true patio and it isn't an enormous room, however enough spacing to not feel squeezed. The service was very attentive and quick - finally, while the noise did pick up a bit due to the March Madness games, I imagine it's pretty nominal most of the time.

    Food and drinks were exceptional!! Service was slow but it was before a concert that was in town so the restaurant was busy! Considering everyone is struggling to get people to work, I was just happy to have service. Will definitely go back again!

    We went to Storyhouse because we like trying out distilleries and this was within walking distance of our hotel. The food was very good and the drinks were fine. I didn't ask if I missed it but I was a little surprised the menu didn't include samples of their spirits outside of a cocktail. Overall it was worth a visit and if we got back to San Diego we'd go back if we stayed in the area.

    I eat here all the time and it’s my fave local neighborhood haunt. They went through some changes lately. Not for the better. Food went from really good to just meh. Hope they can fix it

    Service was amazing. We would go back for the service alone. Loved the outdoor ambiance. They make everything in-house, so everything tasted delicious & fresh. They even made some special food accommodations that weren't on the menu for our picky little eater and she loved it.

    Don't even bother. I tried this place three different times and was turned away because they closed early. They will take reservations up until 9pm, but they'll basically turn you away after 8pm. The staff there closes based on the flow of business. If they are busy after 8pm, they'll stay open and offer you a beer but the cooks went home long before.

    The food is AMAZING! I had the ahi rice bowl, my hubby and mom had the ribs, my friend had the lettuce wraps and my sister had flatbread. Every single dish was incredible. The problem... I hate when the meals come out one or two and a time. My friend got her meal after we were 3/4 done with ours and my sister got her pizza when all of us were done. Go there with a small group! I think their kitchen may not be able to handle more than 2 or 3 dishes at a time. WE WILL GO BACK FOR THE FOOD!!

    I’m pretty picky and it’s a rare occasion I’ll take the time to leave a review, but storyhouse hands-down has some of the best rye you’ll find anywhere, we enjoyed a few rounds with some great pistachio crusted brie ...and also purchased a bottle to take home if that tells you anything , we will be returning and I will be recommending this establishment to many of my whiskey connoisseur friends.

    The food and cocktails were excellent. I had the burger and my fiancé had the ahi bowl. The drinks were the real highlight, the footstep falco was the best mezcal drink I’ve had. We were seated up stairs where it was quieter but downstairs watching the game appeared to be a fun environment to try for next time, definitely coming back.

    I love the open and airy feel having the distillery inside and viewable adds to the ambiance. The craft cocktails are delicious.
