"Ignite is a decent place, a bit loud, and the food good quality. Carlsbad is in the desert. It's also a restaurant desert - not too much to write home about for someone used to living in NY or SF. Ignite had good choices and good quality."

"We had a voucher from Local Flavor for $30 worth of food at the Ignite Bistro. My husband and I enjoyed the BBQ Ribs and the Pork Chops. The service was excellent. Clay was our server and was very attentive and friendly. The food was cooked perfectly and very good. We will definitely return."

"This was my second time to enjoy Ignites offerings, this time for dinner. First time was brunch which was great with man candy to start and we were sold. This time our party all enjoyed different dishes....from pork chops to salmon to tacos to a chicken, pear and Brie sandwich. All were delicious and we topped it off with the smores sundae. Our server Amanda was very attentive and energetic bringing a fun spirit to our experience. Will definitely be back when in town next time."

"Ignite's location made it easy for several friends to meet there because of its central location to Encinitas, San Marcos & the El Camino Real corridor. Food was good & had some creativity to its flavor combinations. Two of 3 people were happy with their meals & one person was so-so feeling there was not enough flavor. Tabasco helped rectify that. Service was good not great, I would choose another place for a "special occasion" but I would choose Ignite for a late night drink, brunch (was not too crowded) or planning a group (good floor plan for your group to be in its own area). I will try it again in the near future for lunch."

"Loved the Oysters on the Half Shell. Very fresh! That's pretty much all I can remember that stands out. I felt like our party was bothering the waitress. I'm kind of sad about that because I'm from NC and visiting Cali for a medical conference. I was hoping to receive a more inviting vibe. Anyway, overall, I'll give Ignite a positive rating."

"This place is known for their man candy. It's made up of bacon and some other seasonings. Not tasty to my tongue. I think it's an acquired taste. The waitress was had a really great personality and spirit. Every employee boasts about foods being cooked in a special oven. That's fine and all but if the food is mediocre, I don't think it matters. I love the scenery viewing over new apartment homes and mountain. The dessert with banana and caramel ice cream didn't taste well... Perhaps an acquired taste also. One of my orders were messed up twice. I'm glad they didn't charge us for that. Overall, I would go here only if there is nothing else available that has better food."

"Always have liked Ignite but the food (braised short rib) and southwest burger were off. The server (do not recall name) was inexperienced and not attentive."

"We had a party of 12 and the service was very slow. When I went to talk to the manager (or owner???), he took me to his computer to show me what time my order was entered (who does that???). Instead of checking on our order he tried to tell me that we ordered late (in so many words) - which we did not. Our server was so busy that he didn't enter our order right away. They need better management - instead of sitting at the bar all night he should have been helping the staff since there were more than 1 large party!
My reservation was at 7:00pm, we got our food well after 8:00pm. This was not due to the server, it was due to poor planning. They only assigned one server to our table, and he had other tables as well."

"My wife and I have been here a few times for dinner while waiting to go to Cinepolis which is across the street; the food is amazing and I would definitely recommend the sea food to any sea food lover. I especially enjoyed the 5 different kinds of oysters that were available from different regions...spot on!"

"We were searching for a restaurant that would be near Legoland and kid friendly. We enjoyed a table for 6 with two children, ages 4 and 5. They offer the kids an opportunity to make their own pizza and then watch it bake on their oven! Plus they have desserts made of S'mores which is another plus."
