Good food, good music, and a great pint of Guinness! This is one of my favorite places in San Diego and I try to come here whenever I visit the area. It is like a bit of Ireland in the states.

This is a real Irish pub so think rustic, not white table cloths. Excellent food and service.

This is a find! A truly authentic Irish pub/restaurant, literally imported from Ireland piece-by-piece, with everything - the food, the decor, the music - fitting the theme. The shepherd's pie and the fish and chips were both excellent. I'm eager to go back on the third Sunday of the month when they have Irish dancing.

Fabulous authentic Irish food. The sampler was awesome and the salad was excellent and very fresh. The bread pudding dessert was to die for. Our waitress was from Ireland so it was fun to chat with her. Great experience

Always a good time. One of my favorite places in SD and definetly my favorite Irish pub. Food is authentic and the beer and liquor is high quality. Live music is a plus and all the decor has been imported from Ireland!

Highly rated on on various review sites. We disagree. Not terrible, just not great. Not 4-5 stars. Service was friendly and fairly prompt. Menu had a lot of traditional Irish Pub type items. The taste of the food was disappointing. Bangers and Mash was overly salty. The (Fish) in the Fish and chips was tough and leathery.

Nice pub. Waitress Rhona is lovely, she and the Irish staff always make me feel welcome. Closest vibe to an actual Irish local that can be found in this part of the world. Nice decor. Also nice to be able to sit upstairs or in the back away from all the noise on the street. Basically just a nice place.

The food is absolutely delicious!! Everything we ordered was fantastic. The servers have a tendency to race about with their heads down, so flagging someone was always interesting. But when we did get their attention, they were all very attentive. Music on the louder side, but it’s an Irish pub, so it goes with the territory. Dark wood with old Irish artifacts made for a very cozy, welcome atmosphere. The Irish coffee was SO good. Can’t wait to go back!!

Excellent fish and chips- drinks were good - shepherds pie was pretty good (prefer a crusty - broiled top instead of just plain mashed potato) service good- noise level pretty high but not completely obnoxious 😳 we will def be back!

Excellent meal at The Field! Started with the sausage rolls, which were unique, and then had the Sheperd's Pie, which was outstanding. Place really brings the ambiance of an Irish Pub. We also had the fish and chips were crispy and tender. Service was first-rate! Will definitely be back to sample other items on the menu.

The food was delicious, ambiance perfect. Couldn't find prices on menu, online, or at the restaurant...hm. It ended up costing a lot more than we remembered from previous visits, too. We've always loved The Field, but I must admit, the cost might prevent us from going more often.
