Expensive fare compared to restaurants across the street, Restaurant isn't open all day long but there is food service on the rooftop pool deck 4th floor (unless it is raining) Room service available. Lunch/breakfast menu is limited and unremarkable.

Description
Jsix is a neighborhood restaurant and bar located in San Diego's East Village. Here, one can celebrate the simple things in life: a hard day's work and a good meal served alongside warm hospitality. Food that pays respect to culinary ingenuity but is stripped of unnecessary complexities is served alongside cocktails that exemplify the tradition and history of the craft. Those looking for a rooftop bar can head up to Upper East for some savory seasonal bites and craft cocktails poolside. Welcome to Jsix, where one is always a friend, never a stranger.
