This is a great restaurant to go for a lunch date. The atmosphere is cozy, there's usually not a crowd, service is attentive and the menu is interesting.

The menu is varied, fresh, and delicious. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. This is a great place to get some inspired comfort food.

Adams Ave Grill was an eh experience for me. As far as dinner goes the food was ok, but came out warm. The serve was nice and friendly but not very responsive or attentive. The place was overpriced for what it was offering. I guess for lunch it would be better, but for the dining experience it wasn't all that. From the reviews I've seen about this place it also looks like service and food is very inconsistent. Not a good sign. This place would be a great place if it took it's service more seriously. The menu is nothing too spectacular either. This just makes for a very forgettable experience.

I live in the neighborhood and run by this restaurant frequently. I can never tell when they are going to be open or closed. Some weekends they don't open for breakfast until 11. We really like their food (esp. breakfast) and their service is excellent but we always make sure to call first to make sure they are open before we head over.

Pros: Good food (especially breakfast dishes), Great Service

Cons: Prices are kinda high for breakfast but portions and variety and service makes it worth it

This restaurant offers great home cooked meals. They also have a great wine list. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner. From seafood to meat loaf to pasta, they have it all.

I LOVE ADAMS AVENUE GRILL! The food is the BEST in San Diego. Try the BBQ Shrimp on Grits or the meatloaf, always a favorite! AAG is friendly and unpretentious, casual but nice enough to make dinner feel a little special. It's great for walking over to if you're in the area, but not a bad drive if you live further away, and it won?t take forever to find a parking space like going to Hillcrest or Downtown. The food is extraordinary here and the staff is terrific too.

Pros: food is delicious, parking was easy, service extremely nice, good artwork

Cons: nothing

Service was mediocre at best. My dinner, which was one of the specials was served cold. I had to send it back. The Salmon on the menu was dry. Very lackluster.

Stick to the new energy, vibe, and variety of the Gaslamp Quarter! Adams Avenue Grill has been around awhile and it shows. Service is functional compared to newer places. My friends and I felt rushed, crowded with the spacing of the tables and parking is a pain. Not the best for hanging out, very small bar area. For special nights, there are more intimate places elsewhere, this place won't pop into my mind.

Pros: Was able to get out quickly and go elsewhere after appetizers

Cons: No parking, service was robotic, dated ambience

My PORK was bloody(!!!) and my wife's "medium" beef wasn't even close (practically rare). Sent both dishes back.
Someone apologizes. Was he the mgr? because he didn't even identify himself. pork came back out cooked-but dry and beef still returned undercooked - what an insult.
When we complained that the beef still wasn't up to snuff, the waitress tried to tell us that the beef was cooked 'more than medium' adding even more insult to injury. told her we wouldn't be paying for the dish. appetite was gone. Check comes w/out manager, and less the beef dish from the check. No offer to comp a drink or an appetizer.
NEVER sent something back twice, refused to pay for a dish, AND stiffed a rude server - all of which happened 10/24 at adams ave.

Editorial from

Chef Tim Klepeis' menu favors American comfort foods, but also ventures into other realms with dishes featuring Asian, Thai, Indian, Mexican and Italian influences. Be sure to order the crab cakes solo, not in the appetizer trio (where…
