"When making reservations for Kitchen 1540, they did seem to miss the special comment requesting special accommodations for a romantic post-engagement dinner. Most places seem to miss that anyway, so whatever. When they called to confirm, I asked about special accommodations...when she read it was for post-engagement, she stepped up her game! She inquired about a special room, but it was booked. They ended up setting us up in a special cabana, and we lucked out that nobody else was there...it was also 6 o'clock, though. Todd was our server, and he made it even more special than I had envisioned. So special that I see us coming back for anniversaries. I honestly don't recall the entire meal, but it was delicious from the complimentary champagne to the dessert that had Congratulations written on the plate in chocolate and complete with candle...we just picked the appetizer, drinks and meal...all of which were just as delicious and unique as the evening was romantic. Major props to Kitchen 1540, the unknown hostess, and of course Todd for making our engagement dinner something out of a fairy tale...or in our case a rom-com!"

"Visited on a Tuesday night after Thanksgiving - I mention that because the server said that may be why they were out of some of the drinks that they had on their menu. The food is interesting, although not quite as flavorful as the server described them as. The restaurant had few patrons and this was a little be surprising, but possibly it was telling also."

"There is no way to describe how artful and amazing the food is here. It has been four days since we ate dinner here and my partner and I are still raving about it. We are total foodies and Now we say, all other food is just "food!" Eating here is an artful and unforgettable experience. We went here on a whim and will most definitely be back. Gratitude for their head chef!!! Steak, Salmon, Shrimp gazpacho, and some other random clam thing my marine biologist waited his whole life to eat. End with the doughnuts!!! Enjoy....."

"Disappointing and perplexing are the best words to describe kitchen 1540. The service was inattentive and unprofessional. Food was basically slap down on the table with barely any word said. The person who brought our desserts simply put them down and walked away. Our friends had the rabbit, which was so oversalted it had to be sent back. The waiter was partly apologetic. He told them he would come from desert. He shouldn't of charge for the dinner itself! The fish dishes work uninspired. I will give them credit for The lamb that I had. It was tasty, tender and a plentiful portion. That was the highlight. The desserts were very weak. The Pear cobbler was amateurish at best.
This is an Auberge resort. So of course it's beautiful and the people milling about were equally beautiful. The setting overlooking the ocean is gorgeous, but you cannot see it from the restaurant. Oops. Given other meals that we had in the Del Mar area, and the reputation of Auberge, we expected a lot more.

"Eating outdoors in their private patio was very romantic. Service was right on point with the resort. But the menu selection was minimal, lacking excitement and almost seemed like they were trying to throw as many things into a dish just to make a long description. I had the chicken which pretty much tasted like a beginners chicken with roasted potatoes....anyone could have made what I ate. It was boring, a tad dry, and nothing I would recommend. But for the ambiance, you can't get much better. Just don't eat there. On the other hand, the inside portion of the 1540 restaurant lacked ambience. Also the Sunday Brunch menu was fairly dull. We went across the street to Sbicca and their brunch menu was much more appealing.......and the flavors backed it up."

"Service was awful. They kept saying that our meal would be ready in a minute when clearly it wasn't. They should have comped they whole meal. Such a disappointment."
