Common Theory Chula Vista 1980 Optima St, Chula Vista Gastropubs • $$
1980 Optima St, Chula Vista

“Great location for our otay ranch community. Some of the food is outstanding. I've had a few dishes. A few of my favorites are the sisig bowl, waygu burger, Brussels and arugula melon salad. The rotating beer list is really good. I'm sure you'll find the beer you want. Since we only sit at the bar the service is always excellent. The parking is very weird you have to literally drive on what seems to be a sidewalk through the park to park in front. The ambiance is very open and airy. The music I thought the perfect level when you can hear it but also have a conversation. A bit busy on the weekends. It's worth it to give this spot a try. I am officially a regular since living just a few blocks away. It's now our favorite go to in the neighborhood can't wait til they get the actual liquor license to try some cocktails.”

“This place is dope!! After a phenomenal dinner experience, it’s earned our favorite sushi spot in Chula Vista.Happy hour Monday through Wednesday is all day. Lucky us, we had dinner on a Wednesday night here.Immediately loved the vibes.Drinks were great. I loved the mango martini with chili. Our food was just as good. Lemon cilantro roll was the perfect amount of fresh fish, lemon and yummy goodness. The crunchy roll wasn’t bad either! I loved how fresh the shrimp tempura is. We also loved the seared tuna nigiri on the HH menu. It was super spicy and had a smoky kick. We loved it!We were most surprised at the top tier service. All the employees were kind. Everyone greeted us when we got there and when we left. Our food came out soooo fast! I couldn’t believe it. All of our rolls were ready within 5 minutes of ordering it. Insane! Shout out to our server Nika. She recommended the spicy ponzu sauce and I loved it so much.The restaurant is almost like a club. If it’s your birthday, there’s a mini show with cow bells, a happy birthday sign, lights and all.”

Rose D Amour Cafe 1283 3rd Ave, Chula Vista Cafe • $$
1283 3rd Ave, Chula Vista

“This is a cute little café in Southwest Chula Vista. I learned about it via Groupon. The reviews & photos were very good, so we tried it. The area it's located in is a little sketchy, and from the outside you can't see its charm. It's very small and there were no sit-down customers when we arrived, so I was worried. The menus need to be remade; the pages are starting to peel and need to be wiped down. But the descriptions of the dishes were well-worded and everything sounded delicious. I ordered the D'Amour Avocado Toast and hubby ordered Chicken Enchiladas w/Molé & 2 eggs on the side. Hubby got the Mexican Mocha & I ordered a Latte w/oat milk. The place was nearly filled by the time our meals arrived, so my worries were gone. Everything was delicious! I loved the basil vinaigrette that is drizzled over the avocado toast (as well as many of their dishes) & the arugula salad. Hubby was very pleasantly surprised at how good his Mexican Mocha was, and I loved my latte as well. When leaving, I asked hubby if he would want to return to Rose D'Amour. He immediately said yes, so I bought two more Groupons. I would go without a Groupon, but since I was able to purchase two more, it was a bonus!”

We stopped by on January 1st (holiday) so there weren't many choices available. Service was not too efficient but was friendly. Non-sugar lemonade was very good. Fried calamari was crispy and served hot but was a bit overcooked. Beef empanadas were a bit too heavy with too much onion; however, the cheese and shrimp empanadas were excellent, tasty with a nice cheese and shrimp filling and a very light flaky crust. Also ordered a king crab salad which was very good, with fresh crab pieces (wished for more) and very fresh avocado slices on a bed of lettuce. A bit pricey but overall good food and a nice place to eat lunch conveniently located within a few mins of Courtyard Marriott hotel.”

Honestly, you should go to try this roll, they NAILED the taste, my brain did not know it was eating sushi because it tasted like a taco but the best of both worlds!!We also got salmon nigiri to test out their fish and rice, and the fish was nice and fresh but their rice wasn't seasoned enough, rice was a bit hard.Overall will come back, to try a few rolls!”

2220 Otay Lakes Rd # 505, Chula Vista

“I frequent this place because of the food, great music, awesome ambience, and the staff is amazing! I usually sit at the bar and the bartender Ana is such a sweetie, she's always very attentive to the entire room and is never too busy to have a quick chat and laugh. I definitely tell some horrible jokes, but I couldn't tell because she makes everyone feel so at home with her little chuckles. This will definitely be the kind of place that I will continue to visit for a long long time.”

“The margaritas are good and very normal. The music is a happy Mexican style music. The dining room is really cute with cool murals. The staff is kind and happy. I ordered the octopus tacos. They were good but super greasy. The chips were warm and yummy. The guacamole was a $25 unnecessary luxury. You should try it once.”

“The restaurant is in a beautiful building in the center of the village. Near the koi pond. We were a party of 8 during peek hours for dinner. We didn't have to wait long no more than 10 minutes for our table. The decor is beautiful and calming. A big water fountain wall right as you enter. The staff is very friendly and welcoming! I tried the vermicelli noodle bowl with beef. The variety of authentic flavors are good! I had asked for the egg rolls to come on top of the bowl sliced up but it was not a good idea. The egg rolls were soggy. Other than that it was a very good meal everyone was very pleased with their meal. Huge shared parking lot out front with lots of movement. Good place for Vietnamese food!”

“Love me some wings! We came here on Veterans Day, a very busy day for most restaurants. I want to say Buffalo Wild Wings provided the best deal for this holiday. My husband got 10 free boneless wings! Plus fries. Cmon, now that's a deal. There was a line out the door before they opened. The managers greeted us. The food was fresh and the wings were cooked to our liking. The fried pickles were a hit too. My husband and I were the first customers this day, but other people got their food before us. That's why I'm docking one star off. We had to wait pretty long for our food. Other than that, we love this Bdubs! I suggest coming here for watch sports games and enjoy some wings with your loved ones. Favorite flavors are; Asian zing and lemon pepper. All flats, duh!”
