Beautiful location, very relaxing, with a delicious menu! Easy kids menu as well.
Restaurant was beautiful & not very crowded. Waitress was exceptional & the food excellent
Overall meal was good. The view from the patio was excellent and the service was very good. Great place for a nice lunch
The location and food were excellent. Service was slow by any measure. Initial greeting by server took an extended time. That said, drinks arrived timely after we ordered. We ordered a mixed green salad to share as the first course and that took more than 20 minutes to arrive. It was clear that other tables were being given celebrate status treatment as we watched them receive attention from our server. When the entres arrived, the food was outstanding and the recommended wines were excellent.
February evenings are still chilly in La Jolla and at one point the outdoor heater near our table was taken away and given to another table. All the heaters were in a row down the center aisle and this heater was pulled out of the main aisle and placed within a few feet of the table just seated. Nobody asked or even acknowledged the need for a move.
The Med at La Valencia hotel is a gem! The outdoor terrace has amazing views of the La Jolla shoreline. They have an extensive wine list. Our waitress was amazing! She made us feel as though we were her only table. We both ordered the lobster roll. Mine came with a generous side salad, and the other came with tasty french fries. Everything was just perfect!
Superb, always. Serving staff was exceptional. Food was wonderful. “Customer first” was obvious. Guest was, as all of our guests are when we come in, most impressed.
We’ll be back soon.
Delicious food, served expertly by very professional staff, in a gorgeous setting with a fabulous view of the Pacific. Couldn't have been better!
This review is only critical of the food itself.
Service and ambience and cleanliness were all excellent.
We were given a beautiful table right on the corner of the balcony, closest to the water.
My partner chose a lobster roll , which was excellent,
and a salad of mixed greens, which was not.
My salmon hash was poorly put together- the salmon and potatoes very over cooked, and eggs were slightly over cooked. I was surprised. Salmon hash is not that hard to prepare.
It also turned out the hot water for tea was lukewarm.
There are a lot of beautiful places to dine with a view in La Jolla. I would have to think twice about returning, if I’m planning to eat....
We really enjoyed the patio of the Med while enjoying a nice brunch
I love the ocean view and the fresh air. The food was mediocre.
The hotel needs better maintenace. There is mold growing on the exterior white ceiling, and the common areas were not very clean.
