    We reserved a table for the outdoor terrace on a Friday night. We were seated immediately and we were not disappointed with the marvelous view of the ocean at La Jolla. Kayla our server was wonderful, friendly, and very knowledgeable being a local. The food was delicious. I would go back simply for the tasty Shawarma Spiced Octopus. The wine was good and we topped of the night with drinks in the front patio with live music.

    All was excellent, except that the person clearing our table was rude, cleared dishes before I finished eating, the waiter brought dessert before two of us were finished and that part of the meal was sloppy and disappointing.

    The restaurant is lovely, but the music in the "outdoor room" beside us was deafening, which made it a little hard to converse. Our waiter was very busy with a large party and we waited a beat or two too long for everything. We ordered wine as soon as we could get his attention after our meals arrived, but the wine came as we were almost finished. The food was very nice, the cocktails were as well, and dessert knocked our socks off. My daughter had the burrata salad, which she said was tasty although the chunks of peaches were off-putting. I had the scallops, which were done to perfection. For dessert we had the olive oil cake, which was a delicious, very dense almost pound cake texture served with whipped cream and berries, and a pot de creme, which was out of this world delicious. Go early for sunset, and don't expect to be seated by the outdoor bar unless you are a hotel guest.

    The view was breathtaking on the terrace but the food was disappointing. We ordered garlic hummus which was good. But the other two dishes- Tuna poke nachos and Tuna salad were disasters. Tasteless and rare and uncooked to the point where we couldn’t eat them at all. We were still charged for it.

    I have been to the Mediterranean many times and this food was not reflective of that area. Everything I ate was heavily laden with a sauce of some sort. I was hoping for fresh and light flavors but they didn't have that. My last resort was the olive oil cake hoping that would do the Mediterranean justice. Nope, they served it cold and sort of damp. This should be served warm.

    I took off a couple of stars because my Shrimp Louie was of tasteless. My husband's burger was outstanding as usual. I wish the chef would bring back the mushroom panini as it was my favorite and something I looked forward to weeks prior to our reservation. We look forward to returning in 8 weeks.

    Made a reservation for the Med Terrace. Best view for lunch in La Jolla. Dog friendly another plus as we always bring ours. Menu is mostly predictable basic ; the Poke appetizer an excellent exception. This is a place to savor a meal with friends or loved ones and let the European style ambience lead to a relaxing vibe. We will be back.

    I have had the cobb salad for lunch on sunday for quite awhile. It is no longer on the menu, and the waitress said the kitchen would not make it. I asked for the rolls we usually order and was told they are not ready on sundays, but she would put some in to heat. The dish my wife usually had (do not remember what it was) was also no longer available. No longer returning as nothing else particularly interest us.

    First, the view was spectacular. It is one of the best views in So Cal. La Jolla is challenging because there is the worlds biggest rip off parking company. I don’t want to name names but it is ACE PARKING. they don’t post their rates then charge $40.00 for parking. No, they do not fill your car with gas. Please tell everyone. Never use their parking. Cheaper to park in a shopping center and Uber. Back to the meal The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. The people who work there were very nice except for our server. Definitely had an attitude. Pretty sure he had just been doing the job for about ten years too long. I would suggest his next job should be a prison guard at Guantanamo Bay. He would be great at cheering up the prisoners The food was excellent. And the atmosphere was incredible. We have eaten there many times and will go back often. Do not miss this one

    Lovely lunch at La Valencia! The outside deck is so special and unique with beautiful views. The food is really delicious and more gourmet than the restaurants in La Jolla. We were celebrating our 65th Birthdays and they had a special birthday cake to share. The service was excellent! I will be back to my favorite place to eat in La Jolla. Thank you La Valencia!

    I made a reservation for my mothers birthday and we show up and they have no table reserved. They tried to stick us in an empty conference room with no view or nobody in there completely not even part of the restaurant. This was a Monday night. This place sucks and is run by clowns would never go back again.
