My husband and I went to this restaurant on Valentine's Day. We should have known better when they weren't busy and accepting walk-ins. We were not greeted by our server for about 10 minutes. He didn't have any knowledge of the drink menu and read the specials from his notepad. I was a server and know that if you want to sell a $40 entree, you better know your stuff! My husband and I settled on doing "small plates" (each around $18!!!). The chicken skewers tasted off and were inedible...the parmesan truffle fries were frozen "fast food" style fries with parmesan cheese and truffle oil thrown on them, come on!!!! Our food took forever to come out. I saw some peoples' butter for bread was being served in shot glasses (they didn't even have enough servingware). I went to the restroom (my husband said the Men's was filthy) and saw that the kitchen and bus station were a wreck! Many other tables around us were complaining and even walking out. This is in a prime location in the Gaslamp Quarter but don't be fooled like we were! You will be ripped off...$64 tab for three appetizers and one sake sampler...boo.

Pros: Fast seating

Cons: Overpriced, service was below average, food was terrible

I signed up specifically to give this restaurant a bad review. The quality of the food was horrible and I bet the only reason they are still open is because of the foot traffic from tourists. I don't know why I keep trying restaurants in the gas lamp area as they are all over priced with sub par food, but this one takes the cake. I was complaining to a friend the next day about it, and they said they tried this exact restaurant a month ago and had the same experience and they wished I called them beforehand to warn me. Enough said.

Pros: Not sure

Cons: The food

My friend went and really liked the atmosphere, but I've gotta give them a lower rating because the prices are too high for the quality of food. An interesting experience, but would not go again.

A pan -asian fusion type fish restaurant on Fifth in the Gaslamp. Atmosphere is trendy and upscale. the service is just ok. Overall the place is way too expensive for what it is.

One of the best restaurants I have dined at in San Diego. The food is very creative both in appearance and in flavor. It's hard to believe this restaurant is in the middle of the gaslamp district amongst the mediocre Italian restaurants. Defiantly a gem!!
