The musician was WAY too loud! The food was lukewarm.
The food was great and there was live music!
We had an awesome time listening to the live music ( Jemille Vialet) during brunch.
Lovely dining experience, with a great atmosphere and vibe. Amazing view
Refreshing cocktails with a beautiful view. Great service and were accommodating for us to move seats for a better view and more shade.
We had lunch outside on the balcony on a beautiful sunny day. The view overlooking the Cove Park my friend had the caesar salad, both with salmon. All in all, a perfect day in paradise!
Fabulous food and fantastic ambiance. It was a beautiful evening on the terrace.
We had a wonderful time! The presentation was excellect, room was perfect, service was great. The only complaint was the price... a little too high in price, plus there was an automatic 20% tip and a service charge.
Great view. Loved the Spring Tea and every bit of what they served as part of it. Would love to go again soon!
We had the exact same Lobster sandwich at George’s yesterday and yours was not as fresh. We had told our friends how wonderful the food has been ( for the 10 or more years) and we’re disappointed. I hope it will be better next time. The Churchills
Highly recommended. The views - inside and out - were a gorgeous feast for the eyes. The food was excellent - we brunched on lobster salad, crab cake, frittata with truffle fries on the side. We enthusiastically recommend giving them all a try. The cocktails were delicious, as well. Our thanks to the team taking on so many extra tasks, with care and attention required by current Covid-impacted circumstances, and doing it all with a smile! We're very much looking forward to coming back to The Med very soon.
Great spot in La Jolla. Gorgeous view, great food, great ambiance, and outstanding service. Looking forward to going back to this spot.
Great place for a drink or to watch the sunset!!!!!!
Service was very slow. Was just food.
Was in town for the day. Lovely service and nice presentation.
They food, service and ambiance were great!!
Great food, awesome views, and exceptional service.
Seated at conference type table with low chairs even though we had a reservation.
I had taken guests 3 times in 7 days and the food quality and serving size was not great in comparison to the previous days. My brother-in-law had the cob salad-very small and looked more like a side salad. My sister had the flatbread, much smaller than my serving the previous day. I can vouch for the Beyond Burger-very good.
I had to go to the bar to get our drinks after a 20 minute wait. Another long wait for our food.
No one came back to check on us or refresh water and iced tea.
Very disappointing, considering I had reservations.
I would like to give it another try, but my companions absolutely do not.
View exceptional looking out over a park to the sea. Server slow and not very attentive. Menu more conducive to a brunch/lunch not dinner. Only 3 dinner selections to choose from. Definitely will go back to see that view. Parking difficult at best. Best option to park is $15 hotel parking. 15 minute parking space close to hotel to get parking pass.
Always Love the venue .... service and music lovely.... food not A+ more b
Our Sunday brunch was as flawless as expected and will definitely do it again soon!!
Went for brunch this past Sunday. I ordered the Benedict chorizo it came out lukewarm. The food is ok - very basic. The med being in such a beautiful location should match the food they serve. Food is underwhelming - really need to get their culinary chops up. The view and ambiance is really nice! Service is also good. It’s a landmark hotel and place you should visit.
The menú was not good, they had very few things to choose from. Mostly a lunch menú not a dinner menú. Dissappoined
We did not stay at the hotel, which was beautiful. The ambiance was good. Six of us dined at their restaurant for the first time. We are local, so we frequent surrounding restaurants such as Eddie V’s and Nine-Ten. The menu has very limited options here and it doesn’t seem to flow well. The appetizers didn’t really go with the main courses. Nothing tasted better than average.
Fabulous tea! Lots of delicious treats on the tiered serving tray. Being greeted with a glass of champagne was wonderful! The room was beautiful and the view was spectacular. Our waiter was attentive and charming.
Beautiful view, chilly because of the ocean breeze, so dress warm.
This experience could have been so much more. There was a wedding going on in the hotel at the same time so maybe they were stretched thin but service was slow and the limited menu left us wanting.
We asked for indoors because it was quite windy. Dining room was completely lacking in ambiance: scuffed floor, old furniture, wobbly table, no music.
Drinks slow to arrive. Waiter inexperienced. One dinner arrived then we waited 25 minutes for the other three. Had to ask the waiter what was going on several times. He never once took initiative or seemed to care about us. Table next to us was seated 20mins after us and served 20mins before us.
We will NEVER return.
The atmosphere was lovely and the staff friendly, helpful and just great. I had not been in this room before. It is beautiful with a Spanish tiled fireplace which was warm and beautiful. The Valencia is one of my favorite places to go and never disappoints. Thank you all for giving us, once again a wonderful experience.
Great food nice people and what a view!
Great food service and ambiance
Great views of Pacific. Hummus trio fantastic. Ahi poke and veggie tacos terrific.
This is my favorite lunch spot out on the balcony. I love their Cobb Salad with fresh Salmon and the sherry vinigarette dressing. Service is superb.
Hummus trio was delicious! Caesar salad was perfect, so was the Turkey club. Try the Pink Lady, it was delightful! The view is spectacular as well.
La Valencia did not have my Open Table reservation even though I had the confirmation. Since I could not readily retrieve my confirmation, due to wifi issues, I was told to wait for a table.
Meanwhile, my party had been seated 15 minutes and they got in under my reservation.
La Valencia hands great food and ambiance but their staff needs training.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch out on the “balcony”, but did find it a bit chilly in the shade, even with the heaters on. The poke bowl was one of the best we’ve ever had while the lobster salad roll was just average. Our server was good and the service team worked well together in meeting the guests needs.
We loved the ambiance but we were disappointed with a limited dinner menu. Same menu we had seen at the pool and for room service.
Food was very generic for an Easter dinner. Lacked flavor and the service was slow. We expected more for the price and that it was a holiday dinner. Would not recommend to friends.
Great food and amazing service with Edgar on the patio!! Made pie COVID-19 Easter feel normal!
Always an amazing time at La Valencia. The food was amazing and the views were gorgeous.
