Came here for my birthday, and it was a great time! Good for large parties, the space and staff can handle them. Brooke was our server, she was great with recommendations and walking us through the menu. Food was quick, overall a nice experience.

This was my 5 time going to Volcano Rabbit, this time I brought my girlfriends back for a weekend trip and booked reservations our first night there. Margaritas are strong and delicious and the carne asada tacos are to die for! It will always be a spot I will come and visit.

First time trying out this place and getting to explore downtown SD first-hand and I’m so glad I chose this place! Food was amazing and service was quick and at tentative. Love everything about it. If I ever come back down to visit I’d definitely stop by again to try out their other tacos and drinks!

I have been here many times since I have been visiting, but as for this reservation we showed up and the restaurant was closed. No one notified us that they were going to be closed and the reservation was during their operating hours. I will say the other times I’ve been the food and drinks were amazing, some of the best guac! But this really rubbed us all the wrong way and we have still never been contacted by the restaurant.

Great vibe and fun place to go! Absolutely wonderful experience creating our own tequila tasting night with delicious food to top it off! Our server was phenomenal and beyond knowledgeable and informative when choosing which tequilas to try. The food was delicious - definitely try the empanadas and calamari strips (so hard to find)! As a side note, for the more mature crowd, it does turn into a downtown “club” around 9pm with a DJ and loud music and the clientele to match - not a bad thing, just not my scene and cue that I needed to wrap up dinner. So excited to have found this new local spot!

This was a nice place for lunch. We sat outside and were served promptly. We each ordered 2 different tacos that were each quite good--don't miss out on the short rib taco. Margarita tasting flight was rather good, too.

Hi Doc! Thank you for coming by! The short rib taco is one of our faves, and you can't go wrong with the margarita flight. Hope to see you again soon!

Hi, We're sorry to hear you weren't impressed with our tacos. We strive to serve exceptional food and "plain" is certainly not good enough! We hope that you will give us another chance. The short rib taco might just win you over. =)

Outstanding prickly pear margarita. Tasty handcrafted tacos and fajitas. Excellent service and ambiance. Good for groups Keep in mind that prices are much higher than for a standard Mexican restaurant, with entrees $20 each-even at lunch, and margaritas similarly priced. If someone else is footing the bill-by all means. If it's your own dime, you may be surprised. Lunch for 15 was $480.

We had an amazing dinner at Volcano Rabbit. We arrived right on time for our 6pm reservation--the place was a bit empty, but it was early. We ordered drinks (I recommend the margarita flight!), shrimp tacitos as an appetizer, and the meat board to split for dinner. All were really wonderful selections. My only bit of feedback for the restaurant was that our food came out very quickly--we got our appetizer within minutes of ordering and then our meat board came out when we had only gotten half-way through our appetizer. It felt a bit rushed, although we didn't feel overall rushed with our experience. Overall, we really enjoyed it and I would love to go back. The food was amazing. Give it a try!

The service was outstanding. Sean was our server. We enjoyed the food and the menu. Very creative. Maybe a little too creative on the tacos. Being a local San Diegan, I know good tacos. The tacos were different and creative, but I prefer legit Tijuana-style tacos. If I were a tourist, I would be very impressed with Volcano Rabbit and their incredible menu and great service. The Calamari was a huge hit. The rolled tacos were crazy good.

They had forgotten to turn off their reservations for a private party during comic con. People were lining up in the chaos outside to find out the restaurant was closed. Bad impression.

Unfortunately they didn't have their full menu due to it being Comic-Con, but the food they did have was pretty good. I will have to come back so I can try there Queso Fundido.
