We always look forward to eating at Vintana. (Popover to start.)
The miso salmon is wonderful as is the sea bass.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our drinks and meals. The brownie sundae dessert was delicious. Service was spot on.

Vintana has gone downhill over the years. The service was slow, the food was mediocre, and the staff seemed disinterested.

We went for brunch, and had a wonderful time. Our server, Jillian, was personable and on point with her table visits. We never had a "...but wait..." moment. You know when the server does a drive by, but doesn't actually ask if you need anything? Nope. Not from Jillian. She was attentive, but gave us space to catch up with one another. Perfect! The food was delicious! We tried the lobster grilled cheese (the hint of lemon in the mascarpone was perfect), crab hash, pork belly benedict, and chicken salad with togarashi pecans. We left full and very happy. Plus: bottomless mimosas!

We really loved the look of the restaurant, and it was also a bit of fun that it was situated on top of a car dealership. While the food was decent, I have definitely ate better food at Cohen Group Restaurants, so that was a bit of a shock.

Great service. The food was great and the presentation was beautiful as well. I highly recommend the ahi tuna stack and the sea bass.

Took out of town guests and they were amazed by the location over the Lexus dealer. The food was wonderful and if you get the correct table, the view of the mountains us very nice. The salmon salad for lunch is always excellent. The waiter was very friendly and helpful in making food choices.

The hostess deleted our reservation and after 20 min of waiting and speaking up we were seated. Everyone else who came in was seated right away. Not a good first visit and won’t be returning.

The food and service were excellent. I noticed that the diners were spread throughout the facility, thus keeping the noise level down. I really appreciated that, since I usually have a hard time hearing my dinner partner. It was a very enjoyable evening. Thank you!

First off we are foodies; we take our dining experiences seriously and have visited many San Diego restaurant venues. "Vintana's" is fine dining done right. Attentive, friendly knowledge staff; good open air type dinning room, high vaulted ceilings with an open fire pit area. Great culinary choices, with an extensive wine, vodka and other spirits menu. Upscale but not unreasonably priced. Pleasant atmosphere with panoramic views. Highly recommend for all occasions, specially when you want to "try something new".
