“Definitely make a reservation. Totally hip place. Great service. Food is OK. Sadly, the swordfish was not tasty at all. In fact, it was very watery. Definitely not five star tries to be a little too Fancy and a little too much seasoning. And a whole lot of smoky of everything. Cocktails are incredible. Bartender was so good. Decor is just basic. But it’s a very busy place with a really nice little patio out front.

Kid-friendliness: Not kid friendly based on menu and Quaintance of the restaurant maybe at lunchtime it is but not for dinner“

“Came here the other night for dinner.(+) Vibe. Very cute little restaurant with the sushi bar and a few tables along the walls.(+) Service. Pretty on top of things and friendly. There were a few times I think the server didn't notice something and the sushi chef said something in Japanese and she would come over quickly.(+) Food. We got the $150 omakase, and it's a great deal! You get a good amount of kitchen dishes but also a good amount of nigiri. Fish is fresh, had some cool fish types we haven't had before. Sushi chef was super nice and chatted with us a good amount.Would definitely come again.“

“Not sure how describe the place, it's in a strip mall, but everything around here is. The signage stands out if make the turn into the super crowded parking lot. The music was great, loud enough to cover the din of the customers, but not so loud you can't have a conversation. The overall business is small, but delivered on huge flavors.I had no idea what a Las Aguachille was, but the description sounded amazing, so I ordered a half order, glad I did, no way I could eat it all. I got it with black sauce, black like the devil's soul and just as hot. I'm sweating as I type this, my tongue is burning and salivating with each bite. It's delicious, cucumber, red onion, radish, lime juice, and shrimp, with a nice dose of avocado. It's amazing, my mouth is cooling down and the beads of sweat are limited to my upper lip. I will definitely try it again before I leave, red sauce next time.I also wanted to try a single Birria taco, but they had a variant called the Manolarga, it's queso birria taco with with an octopus tentacle, lightly fried, perfectly seasoned, thrown in for good measure. By God, it measured up perfectly. The tender pulpo blended perfectly with the Birria in the taco. I ended up using the consume that came with the taco to help put out the fire in mouth.Overall it's a great place. I'm here for three days, I will be back with my fellow work travelers tomorrow.“

“Updated: 7 years after first discovering this local gem, it's still my favorite stop in San Diego! The quality, freshness and deliciousness of their menu items still stands!----This is my immediate first stop after leaving San Diego Airport. Deliciously fresh fish tacos of a healthy portion size, and I highly recommend trying the chowder. If you go at lunchtime, expect at least a 15 min wait in line, if not longer. Sometimes I prefer to call-in my order for pickup and then eat outside in the sunshine. This is not a place to go if you want a "quick" lunch but the wait is so worth it.“

“One of the best Mariscos food trucks I've been to. Quality is top-notch. You'll have to wait a little, but it's worth it for fresh quality food. Shrimp tacos with Consome always hit the spot. It's a little hidden, but it's definitely worth it if you're in the area.

Parking: Small parking lot shared with a liquor store. It can get a little tight when it gets busy.“

Overall we spent 125$ here, I think the food was delicious but customer service could be better for the price of it.“
