"Nice location and family environment. I was surprised by the turkey being pink. Taste was ok but look and texture questionable. Also there was only the two of us at the table and the bill already included a 20% gratuity. This is usually done at bigger tables but we were not told prior to our order that this would be done - not appreciated! Then when I received the bill there was the final amount plus a place to add tip. I think this is deceiving."

"We used Open Table to find this place at the spur of the moment. While they politely and pleasantly accommodated our party of 9 at the drop of a hat, we were somewhat disappointed that the "restaurant" is actually just tables in the lobby of a dreary hotel. Not exactly a dining room. We watched people check in while we ate."

"We were three at a Friday night dinner. choosing Bistro 39 was an absolute success. The weekly wine was a real party, the dishes were excellent, and the service was superb. Bistro 39 is a real gem Torrey hills, one must try. Highly recommended!!!"
