Top of the Market - San Diego
Need to book at 8:15 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
The food was very average for a fine dining restaurant. Also seemed over priced for the quality and value of food. Would NOT go back. I’ll stick to my chain steakhouses over this
Delicious Cesar salad with salmon!! Can’t wait to return...
I dined here with my gentleman caller, my twin and her husband. So fun! My twin and I were celebrating our birthday and this place was perfect! The food is terrific and varied.
Equally important, the staff are warm and professional. Sure the place is a bit spendy, but for most people it's an ideal place to celebrate, and enjoy the view!
The restaurant was excellent (food and service).
The only issue was across the way on The Midway Carrier. They have the Bob Hope 2 min video with recorded applause that plays over and over that is incredibly annoying. That should be addressed ASAP for the outdoor enjoyment of all in the direct area.
Birthday great food better service
Anniversary meal, Brian was an absolute delight as a waiter. All his suggestions were right on the money!
Great spot, Mason our server was fantastic.
Service was outstanding, the waiter made excellent recommendations so if you’re new to this kind of dining and want a pleasant experience for the money this is the place. The view and setting was great.
We absolutely love coming when we are in San Diego , as we are from Wi. It is so welcoming and love the food and the servers so nice and make it even better, our fourth time and each better than the last.
Food was horrible completely barely took one bite of each valentines course and still ended up with a 250 dollar bill . Would never come back again
Great experience. Great food amazing service
My wife and I went here for Valentine’s Day. The food was excellent and the service top notch. The only downside was biting down on a lobster shell in one of the dishes. The management promptly apologized and offered to comp some of the meal. I’m very satisfied with the experience.
Service was great, food was amazing, and the atmosphere was perfect for a date.
Happy hour on patio with a lovely view & fire. Scallops to die for. Green dip with bread fantastic!
We were very fortunate that the waitstaff seated us next to the window - fantastic views. Although the service started out a little slow, they more than made up for it as the evening passed. Wonderfully prepared food and served very hot. We very much enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend to anyone.
Great food and service. One of the most exciting views. The best bartenders, chefs and servers in San Diego.
Un endroit très agréable . Très bien mange . Service excellent . Un Acceuil chaleureux
I have been going here for years, and it continues to be one of the best
Abalone was incredible
Wonderful place to take out of town guests. The food is great, and the view is marvelous. Would also be great for a quiet evening meal at the bar (for locals).
Very tasty, Ben was great with the wine
Food, service, and atmosphere, was fine. Menu was limited. I expected more seafood and preparation choices.
Sensational. I would definitely dine/entertain here again.
Service was good. Food was terrible; mushrooms - ok, beef fat fries - not good, shrimp & grits - bad, fish tacos - inedible. We would never go back.
I have dined here for lunch and dinner numerous times and have always had the best experience. Service is always impeccable! I had the scallops for dinner and they were amazing. If you’re looking for a place with ambience, view, great service, good food/wine, this is the place.
The food was great and service exemplary...an oh the view:-)
Awww man, wonderful setting, food was amazing and our server made us feel so comfortable! Exactly what I expected from previous dinners!
Hostess was friendly and sat us at a great booth table with a view. Nice ambience. The one server brought us water but then never topped up my wife's water for the rest of the evening and she was only drinking water. The food was hit or miss. Some dishes were great especially the entrees - the scallops and the lobster but other things were just ok - sunchokes side and grilled shrimp appetizer. The service was very inattentive - my wine glass was empty for a while. Just an ok experience. More consistency on the food and better service would be a big improvement but the venue is nice and quite romantic.
I brought my parents here to celebrate their wedding anniversary. It was the first time for all of us but I’ve been to restaurants of this level and know how phenomenal the service usually is. I don’t know if it was just a bad day for them but our server was so rude. We waited over 45 minutes for our food and no one came to update us, when we asked the server he condescendingly responded that he was letting us enjoy our starters - we had finished our starters a long time ago. Then we waited again and asked a different server if he could check for us - we were sincerely concerned that they forgot about us. He told us a lot of orders came in together. The restaurant was not busy, in fact they were closed at 2:45. Not a single person apologized to us. Even at a casual fast food restaurant a sorry would be justified and received but at such a high end restaurant I did not expect servers to treat us so poorly especially when celebrating a special occasion. After spending over $80 I am extremely upset with the treatment we received.
Delicious lobster!!!!! Excelent details!
Should have listened to the reviews. Very pretentious menu that is actually poorly written. Seafood platter listed under the Raw bar. !! Foods were pricey for what you got. Poorly articulated as to what the dish actually was. The view was average at night. I think for a lunch it would be really good. Had to walk up and dow steep steps in and out. Outside patio floor very worn. Inside okay
Such a great place! Very accommodating, great views, amazing food! We were here for our Anniversary and would choose again! Thank you to our server katherine, she took excellent care of us!!!
We've been going to Top of The Market for years. Nothing has changed. We like it.
I love this place. Fantastic food, service and views!
The food is amazing. The staff is fantastic. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation and were promptly seated. The wait staff was so knowledgeable about the menus (food, wine and spirits). She made excellent recommendations. The food was absolutely delicious and came out in a very reasonable amount of time. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. I recommended this place to my friends and they all loved it. I will definitely go there anytime I visit San Diego.
We received a gift certificate to Top from my daughter and were very grateful because Top has been a good go-to dining venue for years. This visit did not disappoint. Good selections and presentation (especially the scallops) and attentive service. We'll be back.
We were there during Restaurant Week and the value was terrific.
Service and front desk were very accommodating.
My team and I come to San Diego every January for the cabi convention. We love love love this restaurant. This was our third annual Top of the Market dining experience. As a former chef I truly appreciate the ambiance, service, creativity and freshness. In fact it is the best (and most expensive) meal of my year and TOTALLY WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Bill, our server was a very attentive and funny server. And good natured answering my many foodie questions.
The Chocolates and Butternut Squash Entremet was too intriguing not to try. It was fabulous! Who’d of thought butternut and chocolate together! YUM!
See you next year!
