    Seating includes an outdoor quad. Breakfast menu is limited but adequate. Quality of food excellent. Service is terrific. Ambiance is informal and casual. Setting is new. There is valet parking which is recommended. Otherwise parking is difficult. Our party of 4 left with a sense that we had “discovered” a new restaurant and that we would return.

    This is a hidden gem in Point Loma, the chef is excellent. Ask for the onion rings, and I always order the striped sea bass. However, the service is horrible. Each time I go there are new staff who don't know how to mix specialty drinks they offer and are less than attentive to the patron. It took 10 minutes sitting in the booth before anyone acknowledged us. Then anther 10 minutes to get a simple glass of wine, and finally 20 minutes in we got to actually order an appetizer. Then wait again for the waiter to come for our main course choice. The waiter never came and asked how we like our meal. But the sous chef did! It is a shame, because it is close to home and good food. I recommend you take you patience and maybe you own wine and give it a try though.

    Overall experience was ok. They didn’t seem to have staffing figured out! It took us about 10 minutes just to get water and silverware. After about 20, the server comes over to tell us he was on his break. Not sure why there was not coverage as there were people walking around? After that though everything was fine and food was great!

    We made a dinner reservation here because we had concert tickets that evening. Cocktails were great. We had the coup and the fizz. Food was good-burger and chicken rigatoni. Ambiance was really cool. We loved the vibe and the indoor/outdoor atmosphere. However, the service was terrible. They didn’t seem to know who was doing what. There were lots of staff members, just not organized at all. Better management would take care of this problem.

    Service was slow and spotty, but it wasn't the servers' fault. There were not enough people working to take care of everyone. Food arrived hot and delicious, but not at the same time for all of our party.

    A lot of potential, the facility is a great brunch or day drinking spot. Ambience, service and drinks were great! Only thing I wish they provided were a little bit larger food portions and more interesting menu options. Food was good but nothing to write home about.

    Reservation was not acknowledged, and the manager claimed it was due to the rain. Luckily there was a table large enough to accommodate our group of 7. Although we did request the patio, rain should not be a reason for not preparing a table for a reservation.

    I got there on time for our reservations and no one was there to help up front and there was a sign that the place was closed. There were people having drinks but no one came to help me - after a few minutes someone came to tell me the kitchen was closed. We were never told they were closed when making the reservations online. It was so upsetting!

    Love the atmosphere and service! Food and drinks were really good too! We happen to be there during trivia night and had no idea but had such a blast playing it! The outdoor space is gorgeous even though we sat inside because it was cold. Love the openness and atmosphere of the restaurant. Again, the service was fantastic!

    Second time back. First time for brunch indoors and this time for happy hour outdoors by fireplace. Ambiance is the reason to visit. Food is average with an Australian twist. Service is good and staff are accommodating. Free 2 hour valet parking with restaurant validation. Despite a $50. Groupon, bill seemed A LOT! Menu isn’t always accurate and can alter prices. More pros than cons. It is a restaurant within a boutique Hilton hotel. Originality, decor, comfort, and options for seating in a beautiful setting indoors or out, is worth the visit alone. Great for a gathering, event, peace & quiet, and something different. I’ll go again but I’m no foodie.

    We went to enjoy a Valentines Day brunch at this cool and aesthetically pleasing spot. Didn’t know it was in a hotel but hotel also had a cool vibe. We made a reservation on OpenTable but it was self seating so we were not properly greeted by a hostess to get checked in. The table options were ok, all outside spots were primarily in the Sun so I asked the waiter (maybe the waiter?) if he could open to shade the table. The table we wanted was still dirty from the prior customer - would have chosen another table but the rest were either taken, too small, or very low i.e. hard to eat at lounge style spots. When the waiter came he was nice but relatively uniformed about the menu. We ordered mimosas but he just brought champagne so I asked for OJ. The food was tasty and came out quick. The vibe and atmosphere was also very nice. It’s a cool spot to hang and go for a quick “brunch” but not someone to take people to have a better more entertaining brunch experience in comparison to a place like Morning Glory. Overall food and drink were solid so I would go back.

    We love Westerly Public House! We ate there on a Friday night for the first time - it was busier than usual, but did not disappoint. Normally we eat on the patio, but moved inside because there was a singer-guitarist on the patio who was turned up way too loud, in our opinion, which made conversation almost impossible. (I will add that three out of the four in our group are professional musicians, and this is not intended to be a criticism of the performer himself, just the volume.)

    Our first visit was to the bar where we had wine and a delicious flatbread served by a very personable bartender, Frankie. He made our short visit there very enjoyable. We came back a bit later with our family for dinner and truly enjoyed our experience. We each had different dishes and found all very well prepared and delicious. Frankie was still there and remembered us and again took very good care of us. Will definitely return.

    The food was mediocre for what the write up in the magazine indicated it was going to be. I thought it was going to be local fresh and varied each week but it could have been any pub anywhere as food was pub food Service pleasant but slow Great place to go for a drink - not sure where the chef was as there was no sign of a great chef in the food

    Hotel restaurants are always a little bit off. This one has a real problem of lighting in the evening. And a lack of cosy detail. Coktails and the bar are amazing. The menu is short but my gosh! The lamb ragu is to die for! And our Waitress was really sweet and dedicated.

    We sat indoors, and it seemed like mostly hotel patrons eating there. Food was not bad (fish and chips and fish tacos), just nothing to write home about. Kind of weird that the fish and chips did not come with cole slaw.

    The first thing to know I that this is a hotel bar/restaurant. Attached to the Hilton near the Marina. Although taking reservations as normal, we hit them with only their bar or “down menu” with very limited offerings. This, it really is less of a restaurant and more of a bar. These facts should be noted within OpenDoor or should not be taking reservations during these times.

    When we read the restaurant description, we were expecting something much more "Australian." Saw their basic website which doesn't have much information. Being from out of the area, it was hard to find and even harder to get rid of our car. We ended up parking in a residential neighborhood blocks away. The menu was limited. I ordered two fish tacos which were pretty tasty, although nothing special. The cocktails were very good, so I would probably only come back for a drink. Very friendly staff; enclosed courtyard in the center of a hotel. Nice if you are in the area.
