Our server was friendly and helpful. The place was pretty empty and it still took a long time to actually get our... drinks. I should have taken note that no one else was eating food... My bad. It wasn't good. But also, the drinks were bad to the point that we didn't finish them. I really wanted to like this place, but the drinks are expensive, the view isn't remarkable, and I lost an equal part time and money.read more

Dressed to impress then a mess!!Great views! Excellent bar vibe! Not much options for menu and the drink I requested... tasted like lemonade. They ran out of blue curacao so made up a drink for me. Not impressed! We left the Hotel indigo just to realize STK in the scruffy part of town, had to call uber to rescue us from this mess.read more

Visiting from Texas . I just have to say everything about this place was just PERFECT. From the drinks , food and... customer service . Drinks and food was just AMAZING we waited literally 10 mins and had our food and drinks. No wait at all. Our server/bartender MIKE was the BEST. Super entertaining . This has by far been my FAVORITE STOP HERE IN SAN DIEGO...read more

I rarely post reviews about places because I know that certain restaurants have rough nights or days. This post is... especially for the manager to see because my fiancee and I were so disappointed with the way we were treated by the host. We made a reservation in the morning for an evening dinner. I called an hour before the reservation to confirm and the host did not find our reservation even though we got an email confirmation, and was extremely rude about it. She hung up on us before we could even speak, she didn't answer our calls, and no manager has returned our call after leaving a voicemail. We drove 3 hours to come to this rooftop restaurant and to be treated so poorly by an immature host/business makes me feel like it's well-deserved to put a terrible review for this place. Would not recommend.read more

Came here for happy hour (5-7PM). Cocktails were quite good and ingredients were all fresh. Bartenders all very... friendly! Great views.Downsides: Great views IF you can get a seat near the edge (difficult with large groups), long lines (10+min) for drinks means you’ll very soon be paying non-happy hour prices.read more

Great place to grab a pre game drink. Beautiful views of San Diego. Bartenders are very capable and friendly. The lobby... downstairs is super pungent with Glade Plug ins or something, which bothered us while waiting for the elevator, but other than that, we love coming here and bringing visitorsread more

overall really dope lounge, but they pack it way too much. we arrived a bit after the 7th inning of a Padres game and... were able to snag a few spots with a perfect view of the game. The line for drinks was quite long as there was way too many people, but also only one bartender. Besides this, the drinks were amazing, the views were stunning, and music was on point. Definitely check this place out, but maybe not too close to the end of Padres games.read more

If you're not a guest at this hotel, don't waste your time. There's a hotel guest priority line inside and a separate... line for everyone else outside. Perfectly understandable. But they will leave everyone outside with no courtesy direction and hold everything up to wait for hotel guests. You'd think they would take some groups from outside in-between hotel guests, but no. My group and I were in the very front of the general line for over an hour. Even when there were zero or 2-3 people in the priority line, they wouldn't allow the general line to move forward, meanwhile it's nearly wrapped around the block. I asked some older white guy in a suit and ear piece about the line. His explanation was poor, poor service , poorly organized, everything all around poor poor poor. 0 out of 10 would recommend, unless you're actually a hotel guest evidently.read more

Big lines to get in. If you stay at the Hotel you go in on a different line which is faster, priority. Great customer... service. Drinks are good and the view is the best. Can get a bit chilly so bring a coat. Also if you stay at hotel you can take your drink to your room if you decide to finish it there.read more

The Manager here was really nice and was cordial in conversing with us when we visited the bar. The bananas foster... sundae was amazing and huge! The only downside was the Irish coffees we ordered at the bar lacked whipped cream and it was hard to get a coffee refill. The poor bartender had to go all the way back to the kitchen to get a coffee pot. Note to Manager- PUT A COFFEE POT IN THE BAR AREA! That said, I think I will still be back as I saw other patrons who ordered the fish and chips and it looked really good.read more

George’s Ocean Terrace: One of the best things about being in San Diego is that you can be outside year-round. It’s a part of our lifestyle. And when you want to eat outdoors, there’s no better place than the Ocean Terrace, acclaimed as the region’s best rooftop dining. So join us at a table overlooking the Pacific, or grab a seat at our elevated bar, for a perfectly relaxed Southern California lunch or dinner with a million-dollar view.

We made reservations for the view and umbrellas were blocking much of it. The food was under seasoned and nothing... special. The appetizer tasted like egg salad on lettuce with a few salad shrimps. We both had different fish as our main dish and felt the veggies were better than the actual fish. No flavor! The service was not impressive by any means. The desert is the only positive part of the meal. Desert was very good. I would NOT bother going again or recommending to a friend.read more

George's at the Cove is always a pleasant experience. Right now they are being very careful and have the tables... partitioned off and the wait staff have gloves and masks on.

The drinks were good, food was sub par. When trying to get the bill we had to ask three separate times each time they... were trying to get us to order more drinks. There was an auto 22% gratuity.(for all bills not just large parties) The music was louder then comfortable for the environment but not obnoxious. What was obnoxious was when leaving asked the front desk woman where the bathroom was she said the downstairs one was for hotel guests only and we could only use the upstairs one so I asked her to badge us back up to the roof and she said no you'll have to go out and wait through the the line in a rude snarky tone. It was a great way to add one more bad taste to the experience.read more

A hidden little secret off of 6th Avenue. Once you are greeted and your reservation is confirmed, you’ll be escorted... through a short hallway where an elevator will lead you up to a beautiful rooftop lounge.This is a great romantic night out or a great way to spend the evening with a small group of friends, or in my case, they were very accommodating to enjoy the night with my kids for my birthday (kid friendly). The staff was beyond courteous and made the night special. The food was delicious, and the drinks were top notch. Definitely recommend The Nolan for any occasion.read more

We had dinner and cocktails here last night. First, the place is really small so make sure you have a reservation or... you might not be able to get in. The decor is modern and chic but has a warm comfortable vibe. That vibe is contributed to by the team that takes care of you. They offer team service...everyone is there to make you comfortable and they all watch over you to make sure your drinks are full. We had meatballs, beef sliders and the truffle mushroom pizza. All were delicious and came out of the kitchen fast and piping hot. The most spectacular part are the sweeping views of the city. You can see into Petco Park and over to the bay and ocean along with lots of sky scrapers. We travel around the world and always look for rooftop places to enjoy an evening, though small stature, this place served up a top notch experience that we highly recommend. Reservations must be made on RESY. There is a charge of $10 per person if you no show or cancel late. I don't think the place has 50 seats so if you don't show, you impact the livelihood of some hard working, well deserved hospitality folks, don't fret over it. Just go and enjoy, we really loved it.read more

Mister A’s: The most spectacular views in San Diego. Bertrand at Mr. A’s is just minutes from Downtown and eternity from the ordinary dining experience. Be pampered with an extremely attentive staff and enticed with the finest cuisine. See the beautiful San Diego skyline, with views of San Diego Bay, Balboa Park, Coronado, Point Loma, and even the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Toast an inspiring San Diego sunset from our outdoor, wrap-around balcony. And watch the jets gently glide into America’s finest city. Bertrand at Mr. A’s. A dining experience you will never forget, and always treasure.

Service was the perfect mix between white linen attention and San Diego comfortable. Food was delicious - great flavor... in every taste-bite and portions that would satisfy someone hungry but not over done.And the view - sitting at table in the outdoor patio on the 12th floor perched at the top of Bankers Hill - showed me San Diego harbor is stunningly beautiful.Definitely put Mr A's on your special occasion to do list. But the experience is worth making it there more regularly.Reservations in advance are required, but if just happen to be in the neighborhood, check to see if they can squeeze you in as a walk-in.read more

One of the best places I've visited for fine dining. Very accomodating and friendly management and staff. Had large... group for dinner the first time and they very kindly seated us in a nice private alcove? (Banquet room? ) although we were originally placed at separate tables in the main dining room. Food was fresh, perfectly presented and with outstanding flavors. Wine pairings were perfect. Haven't been there in a while so I hope to go back soon.Addendum: I have gone back quite a few times since I first reviewed the place. The last 2 being immediately before the pandemic and most recently, just after California opened up again. And with each visit, I love the place more and more. Great ambiance, great staff/service and great food. We were lucky enough to get patio seating ( early reservations ). The plan was to watch the sunset. However, the weather did not cooperate and was cloudy that evening. It still afforded great views of airplanes landing, if you're into that.read more
