    Dinner at Wormwood has never cease to amaze me. The garden seating removes us from the the busy city streets and the delicious imaginative cuisine takes us to another dimension of the dining world.

    Great place to have a delicious meal!!! Everything was great, I had the onion tart and the NY steak and both of them were delicious. I hope it remains that way and thanks to everyone who made my evening a great one.

    We enjoyed prix fixe 5-course dinner in celebration of Bastille Day. The dishes did not disappoint in any way. Great atmosphere, service and food. Highly recommend Wormwood!

    Overall good experience but not great. Looked forward to the oysters. Disappointed in them. Warm and not very firm. Fish entree was very good. Cocktails were OK. Ordered a Dirty martini but they put tarragon in it. Not great.

    We’ve been to Wormwood several times. On the one hand, the food is delicious, the service gracious, and the setting gorgeous. On the other hand, we leave hungry almost every time and the bill is enormous. Last night the three of us had a 3 cocktails, 3 glasses of wine, canapés, bread, a starter each, a main each, and split a dessert. The total was over $150 a person, and when we came home, we were so hungry we needed to eat sandwiches. This is not a one off experience; this is pretty much what happens every time we go. The pasta was delicious, but smaller than a usual appetizer portion; the fish was wonderful, but couldn’t have been more than 3 ounces of fish. I would understand if the other courses were more filling, but they were not. We basically ate everything we put on the menu, and still left hungry. We’re on the fence whether or not we will return.

    My husband and I both opted for the Chef's curated multi-course dinner and it was a wonderful experience! The price is fair for the quality and quantity of the food served. There were no disappointments and many of the courses were truly exceptional. Every member of the staff was warm and helpful which made the whole evening extra special!

    The wormwood team is fabulous. They truly care about providing their guests with an exceptional experience and go above and beyond to deliver. The food and drinks are the best in San Diego but their dining experience is what truly keeps me coming back. They make you feel like the only table in the restaurant. A+++
