Cool interior and good music. The baked Brie starter was delicious but our main course took forever to arrive. Good thing the food was good, cause we sure worked up an appetite waiting for it.

We've been here before. The food tonight was not good. Nothing tastes fresh. They changed their recipes or something and a 3% surcharge in the bill for what? I was looking forward to this restaurant. Used to be one of my favorites. We ordered mussels, octopus and scallops. None of the tree dishes were any good.

Don't go to this restaurant. They add extra 3% surcharge. Servers don't even know why. One server said it was the law, but in actuality, it is not! This is absolutely not right. It is counter productive. If any restaurant adds hidden surcharges, it just means I wont give one single cent in tip to the servers.

Pleasant light lunch. Good service and reasonably priced food. Both our meals were good and we spent a pleasant hour or so sitting in the sun.

What a fabulous late lunch we just had! Attentive, efficient service and great food! My husband had the duck fat fries and the fried chicken sandwich. I had the escarole/arugula salad, tomato soup and crab cake. The salad had golden beets and apples with peanuts. The Riesling was excellent and the bathrooms were spotless and nicely decorated with completely private... More

Menu with good options, nice drink/wine/beer list. Service was a bit on the slower side but they were apologetic about it when they realized it.

Good restaurant! Good drinks. Good service (Max was excellent). Good food. We stayed with small plates as we had had a large lunch and they came out in a very odd order, but other than that, difficult to find any fault. I wouldn't put it in a "fit for foodies" category but a nice time, seated promptly and a busy... More

When we were walking around downtown at night we were in the mood for more than just typical bar-fare and shared some great appetizers at the bar of searsucker! It was a bit pricey, as expected, but overall the food, drinks, and service were all great!

Easy walk from the Hilton Bayfront and nicely preserved historical district of downtown. Huge bar and plenty of seating (call ahead though) and lively atmosphere. Don't come here if you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner! Service was spot on, menu had plenty to pick from, even for picky eaters (come on, it's California!) and our party of 8 were... More

The chef here is one of the best in SD. All the food is amazing here. A little pricey though and wish they had some specials, but hey they get busy so must not be needed. Great locations, strong drinks, nice small bar with class.

Thank kevin s
