I found this establishment clean, with appropriate staff and very busy. The regular Sunday Morning Jazz Campaign Brunch is a crowd pleaser, requiring reservations. San Diego sparkles in the morning air as the backdrop host for this very nice restaurant and jazz club. Needless to say I will patronize this establishment again, finding it as delightful as the food and... More

Visited for Sunday champagne brunch with my wife & two friends. The service was good, the food selection extensive & we felt the brunch was good value for money. I would recommend booking for Sunday brunch.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch while playing tourists in our own town. I've heard awesome things about the entire property. There was an event going on for kids musicians (awesome job guys!) but the bar/grill was understaffed. We sat for 5 minutes before being brought a menu, another 10 before our drink order was taken...

We were staying at the hotel, so we stopped in the dining room for breakfast and were delighted with the beautiful dining room, excellent service from Jackie, and great food. Breakfast burrito was awesome as was the Eggs Benedict.

Great place to relax and dine. Our waitress, Jackie was a delight and took the best care of us, making sure we had everything we wanted. Food was wonderful as was the view. A great place to spend the afternoon with friends. We will be back because there are several dishes on the menu I must try. Thank you Jackie... More

We had an included meal with our concert package. I wish they would offer an alternate to this 'upper tier' restaurant. It is good for it's type, but we are not 'into' this kind of dining. The filet mignon was well prepared. But service was very slow. We waited more than 20 min. for desserts.

The Sunday Jazz brunch is really a nice way to relax on a Sunday afternoon. Great friendly environment and great views. To enjoy the view from a front table in the lounge; arrive early, open's at 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
