"We had a very disappointing meal at the Westgate. My wife's soup was good, but the "souffle" (it was more like a muffin) that came with it was refrigerator cold. Crab cakes were overloaded with bell pepper, and we found shell pieces in them. My halibut came out cold, and the risotto was undercooked/crunchy. My wife's foie gras came out cold. We sent it back, and when they brought out the new plate, the piece of foie gras was MUCH smaller; about 20% of the size of the original piece. We cancelled that order, as it was not worth the $21 price tag. Thankfully, the manager comped the entire meal, as it was not worth the high menu prices."

"You did not have a choice on the prix fix . Usually you have a choice between two . The hotel is beautiful but the good for Christmas dinner was terrible . We also heard people complaining about the buffet upstairs . The huge dishes the good was served in was a joke . We also saw diners next table struggling to cut the food Very disappointed especially since it was not cheap . Will not go back"

"My wife and I had dinner at the westgate in the main dining room. The atmosphere is old elegance. Crystal chandeliers, etc. Very quiet. The waiter was very polite and helpful. They were out of one of our selections, so he gave us a second glass of wine to compensate. Overall no complaints, except it is very expensive. But a good meal served well sometimes costs a little more."

"Love the waiter -Veysel. We've been coming to this place for a while and that's because of the excellent food and waiters. But lately, they been changing waiters and hope they keep Mr Veysel. Very friendly and attentive, made our dining experience special even when there are so many other choices."

"The class act in San Diego's hotel scene, similar to the look and feel of Versailles. All superb."

"I went here with my wife for our 2nd wedding anniverary. We notified them that we were vegetarians and didn't drink (of which they were very accomodating). The house salad was pretty tasty. I requested the ravioli for my entree, but it didn't seemed cooked enough. The gnocci was really tasty though (what my wife got). We also had the rasberry iced tea which was good and the way it was prepared was pretty cool! Te cheesecake wasn't that great, but the creme brulee was very tasty."

"We enjoyed dining at the Westgate Room. Food and ambience were outstanding. The waiter was a little stiff. He must have been new. He didn't smile or engage when we tried to politely engage with him."

"As above, service and food left a lot to be desired. Baked Alaska could not be "flamed" due to the fact they were too busy that night even though we were the only table occupied. Baked Alaska truly was not baked Alaska but rather a thin little pastry that definitely could not be flamed. A very disappointing evening."

"We usually have dinner at The Westgate before attending events at the Civic Theater for several reasons.
First, the food, the ambiance and the service are wonderful -- our meal of salad, halibut cheeks and a lavender scented creme brulee reminded us of the way dining should be. The lovely room filled with fresh flowers; the subdued voices of the guests (on top of the charming music from the piano bar across the hall); and servers that know how to approach a table create a charming atmosphere rarely found in San Diego.
Second, the Westgate is located directly across from the Civic Theatre - there is simply no easier place to dine before a show. We found that our servers knew what time we'd need to be out to easily walk across the street and into our seats, and that this was accomplished so smoothly it greatly enhanced our evening. No mad dash to the theater. No crossing busy street fearing that you'll be mowed down.
Our evening reminded us just how much we adore The Westgate Room and that we'll come back again soon."

"Disappointing- not up to it former glory . Asparagus vichyssoise was bland and floury ( and hot not cold) . Service was fairly good and they took the soup off the bill ."

"The Westgate is a pre-opera favorite. We liked the new items on the menu and we tried two of them. Great veal medallions and a well-presented, tasty fish dish. I do think, though, that two tiny (1/2" diameter) Brussels sprouts is a bit sparse for a dish that features Brussels sprouts in the description."

"My wife and I were out of town for Valentines, so I needed a restaurant that we could go to for dinner. The decor is fairly sophisticated (some might say stuffy), but the service was outstanding and the food was very good as well. The tenderloin was perfectly cooked, and the Grouper was quite good even though I think it was the first time I had had Grouper and it has a different texture than most fish I prefer."
