Addison Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely peerless in San Diego dinning. The service was second to none and a cut above extraordinary, the food was even better. I could go on and on about how amazing this place is, but I will take a page from the Chef's book and let the simplicity and elegance of the ingredients speak for themselves. Thank you for a special anniversary meal that we will long remember.
Excellent customer service really very very nice the fixed menu good not for the price or the taste the chef presented a lot of small dishes exotic looks good the taste below average , one is the duck I had to spit could not swallow . One of the dish looked very exotic it taste like a bad macaroni and cheese
The bread they served with the dinner was like Hawaiian bread if you are looking for a gourmet food don't touch the chef menu . The wine list very nice . I had to return my martini the first one was terrible . Great setting but need more attention to quality of food and the bar
This was our fourth time dining at Addison. The service is always impeccable, but we found ourselves remembering food that really amazed us in times past rather than just being good. I guess it left us thinking we've had better experiences there. It was still very good and we'll still continue to go to Addison for big occasions and celebrations.
Fantastic meal! Came here for a long anticipated MeetUp group dinner. There were 5 of us. We all got the tasting menu with chef's choices (discouraged from not having everyone in the party doing either the tasting or a la carte menu). Made adjustments smoothly for vegan/vegetarians and food allergies for each individual diner. We had 12 courses, and a take-home gift of coffee cake, plus we took home our final dish of a macaron and truffle because we were stuffed. Servings were small but sufficient to really be able to appreciate the flavors, seasonings, and freshness of the seafood, poultry, and meats, plus wonderful fruits and vegetables used. Very formal presentation was a little pretentious, but entertaining. At $350/person with tip and one glass of (very expensive) wine, it was the most expensive meal most of us had ever had, but we all agreed it was an experience of a lifetime.
We had one of our most memorable dining experiences at Addison last evening. The impeccable and friendly service complimented the exquisitely prepared food. We each did the four course menu and all of out choices turned out delicious,
I would recommend it for anyone that appreciates wonderful food with excellent service in an elegant atmosphere.
I have enjoyed the pleasure of dining in the most beautiful restaurants around the world, and the experience of Addison definitely ranks as one of the most exquisite. The ambiance of the decor, the tasting menu, the wine, the presentation and servers - the total package, was second to none. An experience to remember.
Elegance all over. Upon being seated at a surprising, nearly empty table(2 chargers and a glass objet d'art on a relatively large white table) a sumptuous, intriguing, delicious meal was impeccably served with the utmost of care. I loved it, but make the table more inviting as you sit down. Expensive, but very good wine.
This was hands down the most amazing experience we've ever had dining. From the customer service to the food, it's something everyone should try. We came here the night we got married and everyone went way beyond expectations with making us feel special. Food is spectacular and beautiful.
While a very opulent setting with excellent food and service, the massive tables and ceiling made it difficult to relax. The staff was a bit overly attentive and again made it difficult to relax and have a conversation.
The plates and food were excellent and unique, but the setting took away from the experience.
The wine list was extensive and impressive, but overpriced.
I did not appreciate the $75 corkage fee.
I would suggest that the option of eating in the library area be made available for a dining as it was much warmer and comfortable than the remainder of the restaurant.
Diners at Addison have a choice of a four course meal chosen from a limited menu, or an extended meal of small plates as chosen by the chef sans menu. We opted for the small plates, figuring that the choices would not be so limited and we could just set aside some small portion one or the other of us didn't care for.
I should mention that the four course meal is prix fixe at $110 per person. We knew that. That's not a normal meal range for us, but we had been given a gift certificate for $250. Perhaps my fault in not asking, but when it was explained that there were two ways to approach the meal: we could choose between four full servings or a number of small plates, it seemed to me that those choices were presented as being otherwise equal. Not so. The eleven very small portions run $255 per person. We added $67 for three glasses of wine which were somewhat lower end choices from the wine list and the bill topped out at over $600 for the two of us before tip. I am not cheap, as evidenced by the fact that we paid a full tip for the excellent service, but come on. Okay, that's said; on to the meal.
Beautiful ambiance, extraordinary and very cordial service, very nice wine choices. I would say that nine of the eleven "Tasting Menu" items were very good to extraordinary creations using high quality ingredients in the most creative manner. Outstanding to us were the cucumber and yogurt granite, sake cured kampachi, asparagus with osetra caviar, scallops with leek cream and morel mushrooms, and coffee roasted canard. The beef bourdelais was just so-so, and I thought the halibut and king crab with coconut curry would have been better at any Thai restaurant. So price shock aside, which might be hard to do, I don't recommend eating this way. Eleven tiny portions, although more than enough food with bread courses included, do not ultimately make a well balanced and satisfying meal in my book. Perhaps the four course meal? Well, once was enough.
Maybe we've been spoiled by Guy Savoy, Joel Robuchon and the like. The Addison holds itself as in this class but the food is not. The food is extremely good but we walked away feeling over promised and under delivered regarding the food. The ambience and service did make up for anything lacking in spades. Still a must eat restaurant if you're in San Diego
Wow! The Addison sets the bar for what a premium dining experience can be. Imagine your favorite foods prepared as well as possible and presented as edible art by the most attentive staff. Every detail was thought out, and this turned out to be a romantic Iron Chef moment for the two of us. Yes, it was spendy, but it was also worth it...Enjoy!
We came here for a double anniversary celebration. The service was the best I've ever encountered. The food was artistic, and tasted as good as it looked. The space was so beautiful. We were seated by a huge and gorgeous fireplace. We chose the tasting menu as I'm adventurous and really wanted to savor everything the chef had to offer. My husband is much less adventurous and the only thing he didn't care for was a small piece of perfect sea urchin. I loved the foie gras with the chocolate toast. The asparagus and osetra caviar was sublime. The simple parker roll was elevated to heavenly status. I knew going in this was going to be a very expensive night, and it was, so plan accordingly. Our friends and I could not believe it when we were finishing up and it had been 4 hours as it seemed to go by so quickly. We did the wine pairing with our meal, and our friends did not. I think if I ever go back, I would instead put the money we spent on the wine pairing to a couple of really good bottles of wine instead. Everything complimented the dishes, but I can't imagine a couple of great bottles would hinder the experience. I can't say enough about every single person we encountered that worked there. The combination of the food and service made this an unforgettable night. Thank you, Addison, for making our special occasion even more special!
My wife and I love this place. The tasting menu is the best by far of any other menu we have tried, we have tried many. The service is high quality and everyone supports each other. Sean is the head of it and really makes you feel welcome. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting fine dining. Please try it you will not be disappointed.
Out of five stars, I give this place SEVEN. the sixth star is because all elements of this experience exceeded my expectations. The seventh star is because my wife and I just had the best meal we ever had. You can choose your own items or allow the chef to choose for you. I recommend giving the chef the keys to your stomach. He will take it on an amazing adventure. The restaurant is also very good with accommodating allergies and food restrictions.
One of the most unbelievable dining experiences I've had! Everything was impeccable. The staff were attentive and helpful throughout the meal. We had the chef's choice menu which was the most perfect blend of flavors i could have asked for. Simply delicious. Every. Single. Bite. A must try for a special occasion!
