“WASTE OF MONEY FOR NEW YEARS”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2006

Do not plan on spending a lovely New Year's eve here.
For the money, $125.00 per person, you got nothing more than you would get on any other night. The dinner was marginal at best. From where we were sitting, you could not even hear the music. The so called lobster bisque tasted like run down tomato soup. When the maitre'D asked how our dinner was so far, we told him about the soup. He was aghast and said he would bring out some of the best soup ever. Upon his return he told us that they ran out of the soup & what we were served was tomato bouillon!!! Image that! He said he would comp us premium after dinner drinks. (Drinks, not premium drinks were included in the per person price). We sat down at 8:15 and at midnight we had not yet received our dessert. At midnight, we got up & joined everyone to watch the countdown on the TV in the bar. After that we went back to our table to have dessert and we asked to order our promised premium drinks. After checking, the waiter came back and told us the bar was closed. The place cleared out, there were no waiters in sight. It left for a strange New Years. It was 12:15 and we couln't get a drink and the tables were all being cleared. We spent the night in the Hotel La Jolla which houses this restaurant and there was no hot water in the am to shower with. Upon check out we told the front desk and all she could do was say sorry!! Foget this place..
