Enjoyed a nice meal after a long day at a convention. The tortilla soup was very good. It was a quiet and the service was good
Vela still proves an independent great find along the marina venue list in San Diego. Waterfront views and an excellent menu are just some of the great things here.
Our reservation was for 545p and we arrived on time. There was a long line, supposedly all for 545p. We were warned that the kitchen was slow, so we immediately gave our order when the waitress arrived. By 7pm, our food had not arrived. The waitress was extremely apologetic, tables all around were leaving after more than an hour with no food. Our food arrived at 7:15pm, and we shoved it down and were half hour late for our event in the same hotel. It's understandable that they would be busy, with 2 conferences going on. It is inexcusable that they were understaffed and did not plan how they accepted reservations.
Food quality was a let down. Ratios on various dishes we off
If it wasn't for the staff this place would not be good. Chicken was over cooked. The menu was limited to an event in town BUT staff said we could order from 2 other local places and they would get the food. Drinks rocked! A purple martini with raspberry was awesome! this is a hotel resturant so don't expect much! I would try it one more time WITHOUT the event being in town to see if it makes a difference!
Took for ever to get our food and then the orders were all wrong, when they were finally sorted many people still ended up with the wrong food. Service was HORRIFIC. We even had to wait another 30 minutes for the bills. We'd been going here annually for years- never again. OH and the restaurant was half empty on a Friday night during a major event--we should have figured there was a problem.
My rare steak came it medium well, once they remade it, it came out great! My wife's brisket burger was delicious also.
Very scenic restaurant; service and food wait can be speeded up a bit. overall it was okay and I would give a second try.
Worst brunch I have ever eaten. Food was tasteless, cold, and soggy. Had been sitting around a long time. Cheese tasted like the refrigerator. Ham was super salty, inedible. Roasted veggies weren't cooked. At that price point ishould have had better food choices and fresh food. The Deserts were mediocre, kids liked the cake pops.
We went for Mother's Day Brunch and they had a great variety of choices from build your own omelette & Eggs Benedict stations to a wide array of Salad and dessert options.
