    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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

    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

    We told our server that we would like to meet Chef Blais. Chef was so gracious, came out to our table to introduce himself, then took us back to kitchen to take photo. Food was delicious.

    Everything is incredible; from the food to the service. Highlights were the squid link linguini and the deviled eggs. You can't go wrong here.

    Really wanted to like it. Great service and atmosphere, but the food is just off... it’s just missing something that would make everything click and be the great restaurant you want.

    Menu here changes daily. Every meal here is a new and fresh experience and always very delicious. I go here every year after SDCC and highly recommended it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The yellowtail is excellent. Very good quality fish and the combination of the crisp, vegetables and the fish in one bite is fantastic

    Cool environment and vibe. I would order small plates and the bites. I liked the biscuit, and chestnut agnolotti.The yodel was too sweet for my liking.

    If you have a party of 7 or more you have to get a pre-selected menu but that’s not at all. Incredible food and worth the price and hype.

    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.
