First night while staying at the hotel ( just arrived) we went here and found it loud , with poor acoustics, uncomfortable furniture, so we left.

Being a close to captive audience , next the night we went much earlier, and it was much quieter. We found decent house wine prices and about the best restaurant atmosphere in the hotel, which I suppose is damning with faint praise ... but as a saving grace there was a wonderful turkey burger and good service.

Next night still noisy but still best in hotel, and still great turkey burgers. Not many dining choices in this area fir early diners. Oh well!

Here is great place for beer on tap, large selection of wines by the glass and a professional mixologist for just about any kind of cocktail you might want. Many good appetizers, snacks and tapas kind of goodies. Small bar but cozy with lots of high tables/stools around the bar area. Excellent outside patio again with large fireplaces and fun atmosphere. Good for couples, parties or business meetings too.

The food seem to come from the main restaurant Adobe (or from its kitchen), but very slowly :D. I ate here until I realized that. I could not figure out the purpose of this restaurant.

With two strikes against this restaurant (the name and the fact that it is a hotel restaurant) I was not expecting a whole lot in the way of food--boy, was I wrong! They have the best guacamole and hot sauce that I have ever tasted in San Diego! The corn soup is to die for! The service was outstanding---this restaurant is truly a gem hidden in plain sight!!!!!
