We’re visiting from the East Coast and this was truly an amazing dining experience. It’s very expensive but is what you would expect for this type of dining. Everything was beautifully prepared, presented and explained. Would definitely recommend “Through the Looking Glass” wine pairing. The wine pairings were perfect for each course! Would definitely recommend and would come again when visiting to enjoy a special dining experience.

We had a very good experience. This is a great choice if you have either a full vegan/vegetarian party or a mixed group. The food is made in separate kitchens, and the vegan dishes are unique and inventive - not just dishes without meat. The service is great. They are dog-friendly and were able to accommodate us with a table near the door. It can be a little pricey but I think it's worth it for the quality and presentation. We'll be returning shortly for our anniversary because we were so pleased with the last meal we had.

About the restaurant
Ambrogio15 Del Mar is a more upscale, but still casual version than our Pacific Beach Restaurant. We will have gourmet Pizzas developed by our partnership with Michelin-starred Milanese chef Silvio Salmoiraghi, his partner Choi Cheolhyeok, and gastronome Paolo Tucci. Additionally, we will also offer a five-course gourmet tasting menu for 15-20 diners at a time featuring Italian dishes and global meat and seafood entrees, with a vast menu of natural Italian wines and French Champagnes.

THANK YOU, AMBROGIO15 DEL MAR: My superb dinner & outstanding sommelier-led wine tasting session provided a perfect evening. The shaved zucchini wrapped around a dollop of burrata, atop a delectable slice of yellow tomato, laced with a lemon-citrus light vinaigrette was extraordinary. The carpaccio with arugula and a smattering of burrata (or ricotta?) was also a perfect complement to the wines. The food and wines were matched in excellence by the perfect restaurant service team and the delightful and knowledgeable DOCG Italian sommelier. I highly recommend Ambrogio15 Del Mar for an outstanding evening of excellent food, wine, and a great service team.

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

The selection is broad (something for everyone), the food is excellent, the portions are huge (assume you will have two meals from one entree), and in that context the prices are fair. Great staff doing their best to take care of all guests on a VERY busy Father's Day. We come here regularly.

This was perhaps the 10th time we enjoyed a special occasion buffet at the Aragon ballroom. It is always a class act with great service, food and atmosphere.

When we arrived for the Glow Party that was supposed to start at 9:30pm. We were told it was changed to 11:00pm. They were late putting out the party glow favors. They need wait staff, we had to ask to get any service, I did have a table reservation but it didn’t matter, they never asked. We had to print out our tickets from Vettix but no one asked for it to scan it. It was very unorganized and the felmale DJ/Photographer barely spoke english and she didn’t do a good job. Need a better DJ for the future she wasn’t prepared.
