We popped in for a late lunch and enjoyed excellent cocktails, diverse oysters, and tasty flatbreads. Everything we consumed was unique and delicious; service and live music were great, too. Nice atmosphere (great decor and roaring fires) and pleasant vibe (other patrons were as friendly...More

If you like oysters, you will probably love this place. The ambiance is very cool, and the small oyster selection was as fresh as it gets. Dinner, however, was just average. The food was decent and flavors were fine but it wasn’t anything special. $35...More

We sat outside for a quieter ambiance. We loved the carrots (it may sound insane to love carrots, but wait till you have theirs), the squash sprouts and the oysters. And our server was incredibly helpful, punctual, friendly.... She really made the experience.

We had a really nice family meal here. Tasty and well judged with decent wines and professional friendly service. Loved the environment as well. It put nearby Dukes to shame at a lower price to boot. This and nine-ten were our two La Jolla favourites.

A fun restaurant right in the middle of La Jolla's downtown village. Terrific seafood, fresh fare. Fun indoor and outdoor setting. Only reason for downgrade -- it's a bit noisy. But not too much to deter me from going again.

We attempted to have a late lunch at Herringbone. The atmosphere is kitschy and fun and they had loud music. Arrived at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon. Main restaurant was closed - only open for bar food which we would have done but.... they had...More
