    The bartender shaking ice at the bar frequently was mildly disruptive. But, the quality of the food, the rest of the ambiance, and the food (worth mentioning twice) were so delicious it was absolutely a great experience.

    Hunsaker’s IS a destination. Whenever we have guests visiting from out of town we dine there, if it’s a special occasion, we dine there—ACTUALLY, we often dine there “just because “. It’s a great value and a fabulous experience every single time. It’s a hidden jewel in quaint downtown Escondido. It matters not if you live in Carlsbad, Oceanside, Encinitas or downtown San Diego, if you are looking for an extraordinary dining experience, make the trek to downtown Escondido, IT IS SOOO WORTH IT. Perfect for date night, or entertaining friends. Hunsaker’s understands the value of good food, REAL food, and excellent service! BRAVO! We will be back again and again.

    I picked this place for us to try out for my husband‘s birthday last night. I’ve seen so many great things online and it really didn’t disappoint. I made a reservation for inside but when we got there, it felt a bit warm so we opted to sit outside on the patio. This was the most delicious dinner I’ve had in a long time

    Service was excellent. Ambiance was decent. Food was ok. The pork was very fatty and smothered with a sauce that was too sweet. The bread was probably, fine, but there is probably no need to grill it as soemwhat wrecks the texture and taste. Soup was fine but 20$ for soup is expensive compared to other restaurants

    The staff are very welcoming and polite. Although a little more training from management wouldn't hurt regarding how to serve champagne. The chef's mercy was quite good. The three course meal was better than expected. The first course was very good. The second course was good but I felt that it had too many cherry tomatoes. The dessert was phenomenal!. It was our first time there and we will go back to try other offerings.
