The service was great
This place is awesome.
We're from Tucson and have visited Carlsbad at least 4 times over the past 7 years for a few days by the beach. Have been to Vigilucci's 4 times. Our visit was the first since 2014 and a memorial service in La Jolla was an added reason for the trip. Also, it was a 3 day weekend (President's Day) and everything was pricey, overcrowded and a little too much traffic even for California. The food was exceptional but the MP were much higher than we were used to. The special, Short Rib stuffed Ravioli was exceptional and should find its way on to the regular menu! The crab legs were MP and also very good especially for those of us from Desert country although I was taken back by $75 price. Service was excellent even a little too fast. This is not a complaint just an observation. I feel like the farmer who says he never gets enough rain until he gets too much rain. I also recommend the Spumoni.
We had a great dinner and the service was fantastic! Phenomenal food and drink.
Great food was also great accommodating our kids. We will definitely be back again.
Our experience there was fantastic, we were treated very well and the food was amazing! We will be going back soon.
Thank you so much! I thought it was a nice touch to add a signed Anniversary card by each of the employees ! That was so thoughtful! From the host to the waitresses, etc., everyone was very professional and attentive. Again, thank you very much for making this a very special evening!
The view of the setting sun was beautiful. The staff was great from the valet parking attendant to the hostess to the wait staff. The only disappointment was that the management did not stop by the table ( mine nor others) to ensure the dining experience was what one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.
Fabulous happy hour and view!
Fun, lively place with really solid food, great wait staff.
It was our 1st time there . We went for Valentine's Day lunch. The table was an Oceanside view. The service and food was excellent featuring a fantastic wine selection. I highly recommend this restaurant when in Carlsbad.
Waiters and waitresses are excellent...especially Danielle' and Jacquline. We feel special with each visit. Thank you!
Staff is very personable. Very aware when not to interrupt your conversation. Love their specials.
Great food, service and accommodation. We entertained business associates from Europe and they were impressed and thoroughly satisfied. You can't go wrong here!
Service was outstanding the people were outstanding and the food and wine were even better.
When I made the reservation I specifically stated that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. As we were being seated I mentioned it to the hostess and then again to our server in anticipation that the restaurant would acknowledge our special occasion in some way. Unfortunately, my request was ignored. Vigilucci’s did absolutely nothing to make my husband’s special day memorable.
Additionally, we were disappointed to find that there were no dishes appropriate for vegetarians. The entrees either had meat or seafood and the waitstaff advised us that the chef was unwilling to make any substitutions.
All in all, it was an unfortunate, expensive experience that offered no value for us and our guests.
What a delightful evening! We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. The food was fabulous. The service was excellent. Our thanks to Bruce for making our evening special.
I always enjoy eating here as the food is outstanding! The service is also impeccable! A great venue for a celebration!
Great food and ambiance
Management team , our waitress and even a visit from the owner,Robbie.... all are top shelf!!!! The meal was one of the best we have had !!!! Can’t wait to come back for more!!!
Once we got over the sticker shock of the menu prices, the meal was quite nice. I know this place has great ocean views and wonderful food but $ 250 for a meal for three was a bit more than we had in mind since there was only one $ 60 bottle of wine and no coffee or desserts. Lovely place for a special occasion especially if you can visit at or near sunset.
Terrific Halibut 'special', but when you're lunching with a friend you haven't seen in 4 years you forget little things like asking the waiter what the 'special' halibut cost--$38 !..or interrogate him after he asks you 'and for your salad we have....etc etc" and you assume during conversation and a beautiful sunny day by the ocean that the salad must surely come with it..nope $10.50 more....so for food quality-great; for charging $5 for 'valet' parking when the farthest car is going to be 15 yards from where you're standing? huh? and for never throwing a price out there on dinner priced luncheon food---I'd keep my eyes and ears open if I were you.
The lamb chops with garlic mashed potatoes were excellent.
Restaurant week brought us here - great value & will definitely come back!!
The hostess was borderline rude. Took awhile to even acknowledge that we were standing right there in front of her. Requested a view with my reservation weeks before we arrived. She gave us probably the worst view in the restaurant until I requested another table. Our waiter was awesome as was the food he recommended. Overall, great evening except for the interaction with the hostess.
It is a very cozy restaurant, the food quality was very good with sizable portions. Very friendly wait staff. Nice Patio Seating. A little noisy on the weekend for lunch due to lots of noisy motorcycles on their coastal weekend drive.
This is one of our favorite places! Great food, service and view! Always a special experience!
Food was delicious! We came here for restaurant week and it was definitely worth it. Three course meal for $40. Can’t get any better than that.
We had a very nice dinner and he service was great. Food was delicious as usual. This was our first time going during restaurant week and I was really impressed with the choices on the menu.
We had a good time everything was fine when we was leaving the waiter was upset about his tip
