This was one the best meals I've had. Just recently returned from Oahu and Maui so this speaks volumes. We were here for the prix fix menu on NY Eve. Everything was wonderful but particularly the smoked salmon and caviar. Loved Club M afterward. There was a jazz band playing and instead of staying for 1 drink as we planned, we ended the night here. Great food and good time for all

Amaya is by far the most elegant restaurant in La Jolla, maybe in San Diego. The service was attentive, the food well prepared and the wine list extensive.

This restaurant is beautiful. What a decor! The owners and investors spared no expense in building this place. It's in a great location as well....right in the Village. The food is very good....we had drinks and appetizers and everything was delicious. It seems to have an older clientele and I only mention this as you might not want to choose this place for anything other than lunch or dinner. Now that being said, it has a live band in the bar area and a dance floor as well. I would highly recommend it.

If you are looking for an elegant and delicious dining experience, this could be it! The Duo of Beef, when available, is to die for! Menu items change from time to time, though a few things seem to be available on a regular basis. The interior is spacious and seems to be able to accommodate both small and large parties and the service is excellent. The menu is on the pricey side but worth the expense. Waiters are attentive but don't 'hover. Food is beautifully presented. If you are a visitor to San Diego/La Jolla area or one of the locals, this restaurant is worth a try.

My husband and I had dinner here a few weeks ago, it's a wonderful fairly new restaurant. It is beautiful inside and out and the food is superb. Try the salmon.
