Service was impecable, food was was the best we ever had. We had the Chefs tasting menu and it was everything we heard about it. Unforgettable night for my wife's birthday! Thanks to he entire staff for making it an enjoyable and menorable evening.

Amazing restaurant menu, I had the 10th anniversary tasting menu with a party of 4 (including a toddler) the service was impeccable. The attention to detail overwhelming. Asked about like or dislikes and tailored the menu to address the needs of the party. Simply one of the best overall meals in a great while. Downside is that you will pay dearly for it!. It is not for the faint of budget.

This is the best fine dining experience in San Diego, hands down! I am 9 months pregnant and I still thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Sean is an amazing waiter! I had the best Mocktails ever. We came for our anniversary. Perfect night!

They didn't process my $250 gift card that night due to a system error and ended up charging me the full amount to my credit card. Said they'll call me first to process the gift card the next day and apply the difference to my CC. They never did. I called three times since (been three days now) and had no call back or resolution on applying my gift card. I'm still looking at a $300+ charge on my AMEX. What's the point of a gift card that I can't use? Food and cocktails were good but this has ruined my experience and impression of the service.

Everything was perfect. The timing and service was excellent. This restaurant really made my husbands and my five year wedding anniversary very memorable. I just want to thank the whole staff: from the people in at the door, to our server, and the kitchen for a great night.

Absolutely phenomenal experience! The chef's sampling included by far the best flavors I've ever enjoyed in my life. William Bradley has meticulously thought through every detail from start to finish and creates a perfect journey through the experience. Even more impressive was the innovation and expertly paired creations the chef produced given the added challenge our group posed with one person being a vegetarian. A truly remarkable and indescribable privilege to have shared this experience.

We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings. The preparations were impressive, inventive, thoughtful and flavorful. Food service was exceptional with very good explanations of the various dishes. Service of the wines was a bit confused. We were poured the same wine twice, likely due to poor communication between the different servers. The wine was quickly replaced by yet another server. The quality of the wines was very good but is not up to the excellence of the food. The wine pairing was overly priced for the quality and value of the wines offered. Overall the experience was very good and I would highly recommend the tasting menu for a wonderful experience in fine dining. Order a good bottle of Montrachet and skip the wine pairing.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had! The service was amazing - at least 10 people interacted with us. The food presentation outstanding. Each dish a work of art. We both loved each dish in the 4 course menu.

One word: EPIC. It's an experience. Perfect for special occasions. It was our second time dinning here last night, celebrated my birthday, and sure it won't be the last. Must do the tasting menu at Chef's mercy with pairing.

Top notch fine dining. Truly a five star service, unfortunately Michelin Guide is not covering Southern California at the moment otherwise they would be a serious contender to get the 3 star batch. All their servings are extra ordinary and full of surprises.

Outstanding tasting menu with wine pairing. Every dish has an element of fresh twist and surprise that is delightful. Perfectly orchestrated service between dishes. Thank you for an amazing service and culinary experience. Will visit again

This was one of the finest meals we have ever experienced. The food was perfection- imaginative, prepared by an amazing chef, presented by top notch servers. It was an amazing gastronomic evening. I cannot think of one misstep. Thank you, Addison Restaurant for an evening to remember!

My wife and I are very fortunate to travel the world. One of the things we do is at least once a week when traveling is to do an evening of fine dining. Over the years we have hit more than 15 of the top 30 on the Pellegrino top 50. Why Addison is not on any of these lists surprises us.
The room, the service and most of all the food rank in the top 5 spots we have ever dined. An exceptional meal with a perfect pace. The food was inventive, with textures and flavours we did not expect. Who would of thought to put some ground peanuts (peanut butter) with perfectly cooked duck, then add a side of the most complex rice dish we have every tasted. One of the best courses I have ever tasted. All in all an outstanding experience.

We had a delightful time. The service was impeccable and a great amount of attention was given to us. The short ribs and oysters were delicious. We were quite impressed with the wine list as well. Although pricy, it was an unforgettable evening. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special evening.
We had heard many good things about the ...
We had heard many good things about the much-ballyhooed Addison, but regrettably have to conclude it is very over-rated. It's a tasting menu which you accept sight unseen, as there is no menu and you don't know what's coming until it is in front of you. That could be good if you like pleasant surprises, but these weren't pleasant. Odd items, such as a fruit cup was one of the "courses." Another course was just a single oyster. The amuse bouche was a dollop of yogurt over some mango sauce. Odd and tiny plates that were not really that tasty. The only good one was a wagyu short rib. But one out of 11 tiny courses is not really a good batting average for this kind of price point. Instead of trying so hard to be out-of-the-ordinary, the chef should try offering valuable and hard-to-find selections that are also delicious. For a good model, refer to Victoria & Albert's, located strangely in Disney World, but still one of the best tasting menus we have ever enjoyed worldwide, going on 30 years!

I rarely take the time to write reviews for dining experiences, but feel like I really should for Addison. Food was exquisite and creative. I had the tasting menu, and it was definitely more than enough food. Service was outstanding, probably the best I've experienced this year (I eat out at fine dining places very frequently). Phone died? No problem, they delivered me iPhone cable on a silver plate. Feeling cold? They have shawls prepared for guests. All staffs were very attentive and friendly, and knowledgable about the cuisine. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for fine dining in San Diego area

Although very quiet, it was outstanding on every level. Food was amazing, definitely up there with French Laundry. Presentation, service and wine all top notch. Best for adults only, special occasion or business dinners. I will return as it doesn't get much better than that.

I went here for my boyfriends birthday. They made us feel welcomed. Food was amazingly good. Me and my boyfriend had yhe four course meal but inbetween meals they shared an extra food cleansing snack. For 2 people with drinks and tip came out to be 430. Its definitely pricey and i would not come here more than once a year but it definitely was an experience we will never forget
The service and quality of food was spectacular!
For those whose said this place didn't fill your appetite, your wrong, my boyfriend and I both did the 4 course meal and we barely couldn't make it to the dessert... The service and quality of food was spectacular.!
Just a perfect experience!!!
From the moment the car door opened and we walked into the entrance and it was if they were all waiting just for us to arrive.." Hello Mr Corradino, hello Ana, Happy Birthday Mr Corradino. Your table is awaiting you"...And without breaking a stride we were led to our table in the main room with views of the golf course and the sun setting. The food was amazing, wine parring was incredible and the staff was just fabulous!!...We had a 10+ course meal with the wine parring, and at dish 7 we took a break in the library by the fireplace and finished our current glass of wine before returning for the final dishes......It was a perfect experience!!!

Hands down one of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. The food and service were above and beyond what we expected. My husband is very difficult to please and he could not stop raving about the amazing food and attentive service. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
