“Large, tasty portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

The food was very good and the portions were huge! They don't have a kids menu, but the hostess told us that the "appetizer" portion would be perfect for them, and it was. From the looks of it, if you have a family the best time to go is before dinner. The place looks like it transforms into more of a bar atmosphere at night.
When we arrived there was a dirty plate and fork, but overall it was a clean place. They quickly took our drink order and they made sure our water glasses were always full!

“Great ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We didnt eat here, but the drinks were fantastic and the service was great. My favorite thing about this place is that it is a converted firestaion. Very well decorated and relaxing. Definitely worth a look at.

“Excellent Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Me and the wife were looking for a brunch spot in SD and stumbled across this place tucked away in the corner. What really caught my eye was complimentary free parking and the upstairs patio overlooking the beach.

She had chocolate chip banana pancakes and I had the NY Steak hash - both were top of the line. It'd definitely on the repeat list the next time I'm in San Diego.

“The view is the best part.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We were there in May 2014. The rooftop was crowded, the food ok, the waitress was good. They have a bar on the rooftop where obviously a lot of the locals workers go. After we ate dinner at a roof top table, we were hoping to watch one of the NBA playoff games on one of 3 flatscreens behind the bar. Unfortunately, a group of people who obviuosly had been there before and who both bartenders knew, took over the entire bar area. There is a door that goes to another part of the roof, that one girl and a couple of guys kept going in and out of. Each time a big gust of wind blew through and the girl didnt shut it, so it kept opening and the bartender had to keep shutting it. With this and not being able to see the screens or hear the game, we left. On the way out in the downstairs (street level) bar, we were able to sit and watch the game. The batender from upstairs came down and appologized for the noise upstairs. We will not be back.
