    Lovely atmosphere in the outside space, food is OK, nothing special at all. Overdressed Caesar salad, mushy risotto, tasteless salmon, tough lobster tail in risotto. Won't be back.

    Difficult to find the restaurant inside the mall. Restaurant location in google is just at the malls entry. Prosecco and bottle of wine was little warm. Meals good, but the fish little over cooked. Wonderful service from Katie Ardell.

    One of the best steakhouses in San Diego, we love coming here for special occasions and romantic dinners out. This time was for my birthday and the ambiance, delicious food, and super nice server made it a night to remember. So many great items on the menu and great central location. Use the mall valet parking and take the stairs to the west for easy access right to the restaurant, couldn't be easier!

    The food was very disappointing. They also served my wife a beef burger by mistake when she ordered a veggie burger. I had to ask them to comp us one meal, they didn’t even offer. The service was slow and the food mediocre at best.

    I made reservations on line, specified outdoor seating, never heard back. I called the afternoon before the reservation spoke to Carlos the manager and asked if it was marked as outside seating. He said yes. We arrived at the restuarant and they said there was no outside seating available, that it was first come first serve. I said, we would have made other arrangements if that was the case. Since we were stuck we sat inside but they told us that Carlos would come to our table. He did and started an argument that he said it was first come first serve. I said I just spoke to you 2 hours ago and your said nothing. At this point arguing was a waste of time, but he made NO EFFORT TO MAKE US ANY MORE COMFORTABLE. I have never had a mgr. argue with me. No matter who is correct, the customer is always right! Did he comp drinks or desert - NO! We spent a lot and because of his attitude I will not go back!!

    We had dinner reservations for 4, not a special event but we wanted a nice dinner out. The location and atmosphere is very nice but the food was mediocre at best, the steak portion size was vey small and the service was substandard! The server was very inattentive, took forever to take our appetizer order and open our bottle of wine. For the money I expect, and we should get better food and service!

    My friend and I ordered the BOB salad with chicken. The chicken was very dry, the amount of bacon in the salad was laughable. Maybe 1/8” wide and 1/2” long and very few of those. The salad did not taste like blue cheese dressing at all.

They really focus of providing you with an overall satisfying dining experience. Our server Austin was very friendly, professional and attentive and "read our minds!" The food was delicious! Kudos to the chef! Everyone was happy and we look forward to our next visit.
