    Go for the small dishes. Have 5 of them instead of a main course. The uni rissotto is excellent and so the foue gras cookies and steak tartare. Cocktails are great also, wines could be better. Enjoy!

    Enjoyed all the dishes we had, especially the garden & grains. Extensive wine list and good cocktails. However, it can get very loud and the tables are quite close together.

    Fun spot but menu a little disjointed and tries too hard. Liked the various small plates.

    We just asked the waitress to bring us tapas style starters as our meal. Awesome - all of it!!!
  • Christopher G.
    Deftly walks the line between classic deliciousness & overworked modernist. Excellent meals with charming service. They tell you that outside is more laid back but are forgetting the overflights.

    Sensational food, and great meeting Chef Blais!
  • Christophe T.
    get a cocktail, try multiple smalls dishes before focusing on the main courses.
  • Lindsay B.
    Wow!!! What an amazing restaurant. The food is beyond delicious with so many depths of flavor. Highly recommend the hand rolls, the duck, and all of the pastas.

    Party of 11: 5/11 had the same dish; it wasn't consistent. Overall: mediocre. Very friendly staff, though.

    Great California fare with a southern twang. Was fine on the novel take on deviled eggs but loved the seafood tostada and the beef tartare toast.

    Definitely one of the best restaurants I've been to in SD. The lamb was great and so was the chicken. Had a few phenomenal apps as well. Check it out for a celebration dinner or something special

    The food was sensational. I enjoyed the deviled eggs, buttermilk biscuit and pasta dishes. Unfortunately many of the dishes had nuts in them and could not be altered. I wish I could have tried more!

    The deviled eggs are made up of this marvelous egg white meringue concoction. You just have to try it. Everything we ate was amazing - yellowtail tostadas, linguine with clams and uni butter.

    Big disappointment. The menu items sound good and interesting but poorly executed. The beef heart tar tar had soggy tater tots that should have been crunchy. The clam linguini was way too salty.

    Baja Shrimp Toast is a lot like spicy avocado bruschetta. It's hearty but not heavy. Great plate for two to share. A respectable portion of charred beauties under those cukes and radishes. Get it.

    They don't typically leave your wine at the table which means servers must be pretty attentive refilling. Ask that they leave your bottle and avoid the hassle.

    Most diners responding positively to Richard Blais' seasonally-driven "left coast cookery". Excitement's building towards the launch of the chef's tasting menu and the full unleashing. Read more
