    Great place for Fourth of July - not crowded and we were well placed for fireworks after dinner. Service was great and cocktails perfect but food just ordinary. (calamari appetizer, salads, short ribs, burger) Overall had a lovely evening but it wasn't about the food.

    Five stars for the beautiful dining room, a lovely place to catch up with friends -- though planes did drown out conversation every few minutes. The floor-to-ceiling windows and the garden views made our day. The brunch food on the otherhand, was really bad. I ordered the eggs benedict and each element was awful - the "poached" egg was cooked to hardboiled consistency, the Canadian bacon slices were two, wafer thin, 2-inch circles of hockey puck, there was a about a tablespoon of hollandaise on each half, the english muffin must have been microwaved because it was tough and chewy beyond edibility, and it was plated on a few strands of arugula that were overheated to wilted mush. It must have been prepped then sat under a heat lamp for a while. My friends had the caprese sandwhich, they were polite, but also seemed pretty "meh" about the food. Their sweet potato waffle fries looked good and they cheerfully ate them. I haven't been here in a few years. Back then it was a packed, lively place, with good food and drinks. This time, the first warning came when we arrived and the place was empty. I hope they overhaul the staff and product quality -- the location is amazing.

    Can't beat the location and the vibe. The food was good but could been better had specific instructions been followed on a few dishes. For a party of 9 I'd have to say our Server KiKi was great, friendly and attentive.

    Was a nice date night. My steak I had to send back because the first one was very well done when I had asked for med rare and the broccoli was not seasoned. However the second go rounds was done very well by the head chef. Steak was perfect and broccoli was great. One bummer was it took awhile to get out check and get cashed out so we could go to our movie so we ended up alil late in the theater and someone had taken our seats. The movie theater food was very poor we had popcorn which had no flavor, and a flourless chocolate cake which I think they forgot to add sugar too because it was not good and the ice cream was older I think because it was iced and not creamy. Overall the movie was good, the company was good, and relaxing seating which was nice. I would change the theater food for next time for sure though.

    The reception upon arrival was great, we were treated nicely and handed a little bouquet which was a very cute gesture. The options available at the buffet were tasty and the omelet station was delicious. My only note there is for the next event, to have a tent over the food so it is not exposed to the sun. Having fruit and yoghurt directly under the sun, is no bueno. The service was pretty mediocre sadly. It showed that The Lot is not used to a big and constant flow of people needing coffee, water, juice, etc. We would finish with a plate and no one would get it. We would leave it on the tables around us and they would sit there for a while with servers passing. To get coffee and water was like a pilgrimage. It wasn't until I was saying to the moms at the table how common sense it was in customer service to see a dirty plate and take it while coming to the table, that our server kind of overheard and started to pick up. But at that point, we were practically done with the meal. The understaffing was obvious. I love The LOT and shift from Point Loma to La Jolla. I would say food-wise it is fine. It is the customer service and staffing that needs work.

    Mothers Day Brunch - everything was fair/average which is something to expect for a movie theater restaurant. Atmosphere was nice and they provided complimentary flowers when you are seated. The food just didn’t live up to the buffet price. Omelette and carving stations were the only elements that made it any different then a run of the mill continental hotel breakfast. Also - the $80 per plate cost somehow did not include a coffee? I understand alcohol being separate but seems crazy to have to pay for a black coffee based on the price tag. Will be back for a movie but probably not a sit down meal.

    Our food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My husband said he would have been happier if his was warmer and wished they had used metal lids to keep everything hot. Otherwise the service was excellent as well as the ambience.
