Great Maple San Diego Ratings and Reviews

Had lunch here with a friend who I hadn't seen in a couple of years. I love the food and creative menu, but I always forget how LOUD the place can get. I've never had a meal here where the table wasn't straining to hear the conversations. The fact that the restaurant is full isn't the issue, it's the volume at which the music is played. C'mon Man!
Anywho...the wait staff was awesome as was the quiche that I ordered at the rock shrimp flatbread my friend had.

We were amazed that the lines and the reviews refer to Great Maple so I can only assume it is a beloved place for locals regardless of food and/or what we ordered were not among their best dishes. We ordered the scrambled egg whites with avocado toast and fruit and the poached eggs over popovers with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and hollandaise...herbed potatoes on the side. The popovers were dry and the herbed potatoes were tasteless. We left the egg whites on the plate. Famous for their french toast, be prepared for two log-like pieces of bread drenched in syrup...not sure. Service was disappointing...the waitress simply forgot us! Not auspicious for a return visit.

I made a reservation ahead of time but we still had to wait over 20 minutes to be seated. The service was very pleasant, but extremely slow. I understand servers can be busy but they appeared well staffed that day, so I didn't expect to wait forever. Food was over priced for the amount that you get. I ordered the daily special and they ran out of the main ingredient by 11:30. Overall, I might try it again, but I've been to many places that are cheaper and have outstanding food. However, if you do try it - you must order the bacon donuts! They definitely were to die for!

We got a table pretty fast although they didn't have my reservation booked, now I don't know if it was the restaurant problem or an app problem.

Service and food were very good. However, I made out reservation online about an hour and 15 minutes before we arrived at the restaurant. Even though I had a confirmation on my phone to show the hostess, it was no where in their system. However, we were early enough that we were seated right away.

One of the best brunches were ever had. Definitely make a res, we got in less than 5 mins with our res. Highly recommend the waffle lollipops and Beignets. We ordered the Florence brunch (polenta, mushroom, egg), portobella brunch and the tofu dish - all amazing :) portions are pretty big, esp after lollipops and benignets. Service was great and they brought out a special dessert for our special occasion. Nothing bad to say

It's really good food and probably has the best decor of any breakfast place in San Diego, but it's overpriced. 2 eggs with potatoes and toast =$13. Side of bacon=$6. Anything involving both eggs and meat=$15+. $10+ bloody marys. $9+ mimosas. The lengthy wait to get a table at this place clearly proves that people are willing to pay the price, but I don't anticipate going back.

Delicious food! Especially the fried chicken bento box, goat cheese spring rolls, salad, and key lime pie. The ambiance is quietly hip. Fun inventive cocktail list (cocktail of the day was Black Forest Margarita). Highly recommend Great Maple.

Great Maple offers some of the best value (combination of taste + ingredients + service) in San Diego. Better than expected. Casual with a nice, cozy environment. Everything we tried was tasty. They offer both good meat and vegetarian options depending on which way you swing. I ordered a market price fish plate, and the price was not outrageous as at other restaurants. The desserts were good too but just a touch too sweet. The only shortcoming was a lack of local San Diego brews on tap. They only had 1 or 2 available. Overall, Great Maple hit the spot!

Great service and the food was wonderful. As usual. Love to go here for Brunch. Only thing, I don't think the AC was working that morning. My guests & I were sweating bullets the entire time we were there. But the food & service made up for that.

This was our second visit to Great Maple. We had to get the Maple Bacon Donuts again, as they are absolutely some of the best donuts to be had in San Diego! The brisket breakfast bowl (not the actual name) was incredible. I ordered it the last time and had to get it again. While we didn't see much of the waitress after we got our food, she was very kind and accommodating with refills and asking if we needed anything before we ordered. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a breakfast, brunch, or lunch spot. I would go ahead and place a reservation though, as the line was about 30 minutes out when we showed up. Thankfully we had the reservation!

We were wonderfully surprised at how awesome this place was! We were not familiar with the area, being from out of town, and chose this place off of a map of San Diego. The food was amazing! Our server was equally amazing. He was friendly, efficient, and went out of his way to offer other places for us to check out on our stay. I had a salad that the server recommended, and my friend had the ribs. Now that I'm back to reality, all I can think about is eating there again! Definitely will dine there again the next time I'm in town.

Looking for a new breakfast experience - this is the place! The house made, fresh maple glazed doughnuts sprinkled with bacon are to die for! A couple of had scrambled melts, one with chorizo and the other with avocado and bacon. These are served with either tiny roasted potatoes or a potato pancake - seasoned and cooked perfectly. I especially liked the cilantro sour cream topping. We will definitely return.

Everything we had was delicious. Portobello mushroom fries fabulous. The maple bacon donuts were a big hit with our foursome. Luckily one of us is vegetarian so the other three each got one (three to an order) and scarfed them right up! Service was okay. Took 20 minutes to get a glass of wine, though. Server was not particularly attentive.

Pleasantly surprised with the food, flavors and portions!
Wow - Portobello Mushroom Fries!! My absolute favorite! Guests also loved the boards & flavors!
Wait staff could have remembered a few requests (i.e. Coffee w/Dessert and Additional Bar Requests). Outside of that - I found it a wonderful dining experience.
