Service is slow here. My wife and I have come to La Jolla Groves a couple of times and each time it took a good hour before we received our meals. The place wasn't packed, so I don't know why we never saw our waiters....More

I was really excited to come here for a birthday dinner with my husband. The atmosphere is absolutely beautiful-- romantic lighting, quaint faux lemon trees, and complementing lemon scent in the air. Everything started out fine enough: our waiter took our appetizer and drink orders,...More

Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful food, fun place for an upscale date. The food is well prepared, and well presented. The Riverwoods where this is located is a fun place for a summer evening as well. Check their calendar for live music and events.

Very pretty restaurant, dine under "lemon trees". Wait staff was pleasant and food arrived quickly. Mushroom bisque was delicious. Beef Bourguignon served over wide pasta noodles (pappardelle) was a little on the sweet side but still good and generous portion. Chicken with fresh peas and...More

Call them. Any answer we give you is second hand. They have a couple of private rooms and we've known them to close their restaurant for a private event (wedding).

Menu prices are a la carte. This isn't the kind of place where you'll find a combo meal. Still, you can have a great experience for a reasonable price. Appetizers average around $10 or less for soups. If you want a great... More
