A great way to celebrate mid-week Taco Tuesday with music, great taco bar and beautiful night.
Reservamos con un día de anticipación una mesa grande para 12 personas. Al llegar la mesa estaba sin sombra con 32grados centígrados y se tardaron media hora en ponernos media sombrilla que no nos tapaba del sol a toda la mesa.
El servicio muy lento
La comida normal
Always a great spot. First time going there for breakfast. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. However drinks were over the top expensive for what we got. Overall 5 stars.
we got old fries and we had to ask for them to be replaced. ordered an old fashioned and it's by far the worst i've ever tried. salad had a lot of dressing. flat bread looked like it was pretty much ready when we ordered because it took a couple of minutes and it didn't feel fresh. the BLAT had 3 little pieces of bacon. We spent almos 90 dollars in this meal. Ambience is nice in Liberty station and the place looks good with nice music. service was good aside from that, disappointed.
This is my new favorite place! Went Tuesday night for the Taco Bar and it was fabulous! Grilled to your specs, lavish toppings and sides, all you can eat! The wait staff and cooks were very personable, and there was an awesome band playing, albeit a tad loud! But, high-energy atmosphere, fun, and comfy! Then I stepped across the way to their super-comfy theatre to watch a movie from a recliner chair - better than home, with great sightlines, high-quality sound, and a push of a button brings a server to take your order, whether for food, drinks, or popcorn! What a delight!
Love this venue! Classy and cool!
Cool place, but food was a bit slow and good, but nothing special
Loud and lively but relaxing at the same time. Had a nice view of the fountain where we sat. Servers are respectful, friendly, accommodating, and very diligent in their work. On top of that, they sat us at our table earlier than our reservation time. Food was tremendous. Will definitely be coming back for more.
Our visit was amazing, waiter was fantastic, the overall service was just a bit slow but the wonderful food and enthusiastic waiter made up for It!
Not good for quiet conversation, at least the 2 times I was there. If you’re there to salsa, it’s perfect.
You may not expect that the restaurant at your local movie theater will be a good one. Then again, this is no ordinary movie theater. Props go out to the ownership who is doing a wonderful job with not only providing a refreshingly new dining and entertainment experience, but with their training as well. The food at both Pt Loma and La Jolla is over-the-top delicious. You pay a premium for the ambiance and location, but I found it definitely worth it. We celebrated a birthday on Saturday night at Pt. Loma, and then did the decor (we are event designers) for a large "Mamma Mia" event in La Jolla on Sunday for one of our customers. I know that she was incredibly happy with the food and service as well.
If you are going to a movie, don't waste time going to an AMC when there is a LOT close to you. You will be able to reserve a first-class seat with service, and then have a great meal afterwards in their restaurant. It's a pretty special way to spend a day, or evening.
The fig and goat cheese appetizer is too die for....wasn't impressed with gouda mac, drinks were good, had the moscow mule excellent, the service as awesome. I love the open air theme, great for breakfast too, will be back.
Wonderful menu items. Love the Orichette dish! Nice wine selections. Great service. Highly recommend after a movie.
I hate leaving a bad review as I've always had great experiences there, but yesterday I went for breakfast and more specifically to watch the World Cup Final between France and Croatia. I got there 5 minutes before my 8:00am reservation. We were seated immediately and after 25 minutes, I got up and let the hostess know that not only had we not been waited on yet, we had yet to be greeted by a server. A gentleman came over at 8:30 and took our drink and food order. He explained that 3 servers had called in "sick" and he was slammed. Our drinks arrived 20 minutes later, there was no lemon in my buddy's iced tea and after a few minutes, I got up and asked hostess for one. She brought it shortly. My food arrived 35 minutes after I had ordered it. My friend received half his order. Ten minutes later he received the rest of his food. When it was time to go, I let the server know that I thought that we shouldn't be charged for a large portion of our bill as the experience was less than stellar. He got us a 50% discount. The food was good and the server tried under extremely trying circumstances, so it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good
We came here to watch the World Cup Final. The restaurant opened early for the Sunday game & it was obvious that they were not prepared. Not enough staff to handle reservations caused delayed service & confusion.
The restaurant area is nice and the seating was comfortable. The food was excellent and our server was courteous. We will definitely be back.
Normally I have enjoyed eating at this restaurant, but this last visit was less than enjoyable. We arrived at our reservation time, it was not busy and were seated quickly. We ordered drinks and an appetizer that arrived fairly timely, than we order food and waited and waited and waited...It was crazy. We did not receive our meals for 45 minutes from the time we ordered them. The server was very apologetic and the manager did comp a portion of the bill, but there was no explanation for the terminal delay and really no excuse. They should have recognized and addressed the delay much sooner. While the food is good, this makes me question whether I will return.
The LOT was exceptional. We had a party of 7 for a birthday dinner which was amazing starting with our greeter and our waiter Austin! Food was great and a perfect breeze flowing through.
I was able to take a group of 8 people to the Lot, Liberty Station.
Some of us had never dined there.
The food , selection and value were all very good.
Service was a tad slow as the server was stretched.
Very impressive that he memorized every order for 8 !
It appeared that the wines were overpriced.
That said they all looked like excellent selections.
All the bigs !. We do not order Opus One too often....
Good food buffet and drinks for taco Tuesday were more expensive than advertised on the premonition screen so that was disappointing, we won’t be able to go as often as we’d like but the band was amazing!
Kimba Light and the salsa dancing on Sundays are great.
Love the set-up and style of the place. Food is food. Service is hit or miss.
Beautiful place, lovely view. I know, from down on the street it may look a bit out of place. But wait until you’re up there! I love that they can open the walls and you can enjoy a fresh breeze. Elegant AND comfortable.
The atmosphere was awesome with the sunset and live music playing. I loved the taco Tuesday buffet. There was a variety of meats, salsas and sides.
Wonderful service! The mac and cheese was fantastic
I love this place! Great customer service, decor and views are super! Outdoor dining to enjoy SD great weather! Highly recommended :)
I went with a friend before a concert.
We made a reservation online for 4:30.
The hostess greeted us with a smile and told us to sit anywhere.
We chose a table away from the wind, as the restaurant is very open. Very comfy seats.
We ordered some water and a bottle of wine....good selection of wine.
We noted that we liked the mellow music.
We had the calamari, which was delicious and served nice and hot...yum
Now the music was louder, and more energetic...not liking it.
Next we ordered a flat bread with caramelized onions, fig, cheese and arugula. This was amazing! All the items blended so we'll together. It was a wonderful burst of flavors in your mouth and cooked perfectly.
Now the music is even louder and not even close to mellow, so we mentioned that to our waiter who told us that others had also had the same complaint. He said the music was controlled by corporate and could not be changed
We enjoyed our experience except for the music, so 4 stars
Please consider changing the music...it was awful
I had heard a lot about The Lot, only to be sorely disappointed... The service was slower than I have ever experienced anywhere! When it takes an hour to get a flatbread, fish tacos, and chilaquiles, not to mention the overpriced wine by the glass, ridiculous really... Overpriced, poor service, and did I mention that it's right under Lindberg Field's flight path. Sorry, never to return
Location is fantastic. The experience stops there. Service was poor and the food was forgettable. Way better places to go inside liberty Station for food.
The only down part was the noise from the plans overheads. Otherwise we had a great experience.
Sat on the patio under a large umbrella that provided plenty of shade. Very comfortable and calm environment. Great area for catching up with friends or family. Diverse menu with enough options to please everyone. Specialty drinks were great. The major problem with this restaurant however, is that all three times I’ve dined there, the service has been beyond awful. You will wait up to 15 minutes for your server to greet you. They have not been welcoming or warm. In fact, some servers appear to be unhappy they are at work. It takes forever to get your beverages and food, and all three times I’ve been there, the server has never checked on how things are going and someone in our party has had to get up and ask for the check. Disappointing since the restaurant is in a great location. Have given it a fair chance, and with all the other wonderful places to dine in Dan Diego, why go back to this one?
Great dining at Liberty Station. Food was good, wait staff also good. Enjoyable evening. I’ll be back!
The food (brunch) was fantasic. The service was a bit slow because we, had a large group, but overall I would not hesitate to recommend it.
The ambiance of the restaurant belies the reality. Such a nice looking place with subpar service. Wait staff doesn’t bother anticipating customers needs. Coffee, with room for cream-but no spoon to stir. Had to use my fork. Creamer served as an afterthought in a plastic to go container used for dressing. Really? Tacky. No coffee refills. Food was good, but served room temp. Staff forgot parts of our order. Never once did staff make themselves available to ask if we needed anything. Seems like all efforts go toward serving their movie patrons. We were initially excited to have found a great brunch place. When we got home we were so disappointed that I looked up reviews for this place to see if our experience was a fluke. Apparently not, as we read a lot of reviewers whose experience mirrored our own. No point returning when they clearly don’t make strides to address problems brought to their attention via poor reviews.
The Lot was pretty good. Great service and great food.
Had a 7PM reservation for dinner. Upon arriving at the reservation time, was offered seating in the bar or outdoors only b/c according to the hostess a large party would be arriving later to be seated in the inside restaurant. Too cool outdoors so sat in the bar - crowded, noisy. The large party eventually showed u 90 minutes after we were seated in the bar. Would have been helpful to receive notification of outdoor restaurant seating only. I would have canceled my reservation had I known.
Took some prospects here and they loved it! The taco Tuesday with the live music was awesome!
Love the venue and today server Kate was over the top awesome and made birthday and girlfriend catch up fab! Thank you
Went there for comedy night. The restaurant really needs a cheaper tapas/appetizer menu. I'll go again for comedy...but not for the food. Too expensive. But the quality was good, and the service was great.
Will the food was out standing, very delicious
But it took long time to come out ,
The server was very nice . I will be back again
