Born & Raised
Sin duda la comida fue excelente, las entradas fueron buenas pero el plato fuerte fue inmejorable!
Great location, view from rooftop tables, friendly and knowledgeable service and great food. Save your pennies up and go here once a year! (It’s expensive).
We had a wonderful table outside with a great video of the skyline. The heat lamps helped with the chalkiness and we felt warm enough to take off our coats. We ordered the steak Diane which was prepared at our table complete with a flambé! The mushrooms and sauce were phenomenal!! The bread was warm and delicious and the sides we got were great. The mashed potatoes were creamy and carrots were sweet and perfectly cooked. Overall, it was such a lovely experience. Highly recommend!!
Everything is special about the dining experience at Born & Raised. The service is unparalleled, the food quality & taste is exceptionally excellent, the ambience is inspiring and just plain gorgeous and best of all, fun. This is hands down the best high end restaurant in San Diego.
good food, prices ok for what you get, meat was good, tartare was good value, nice ambiance, very good service. dessert was a bit disapointing, we had ice cream that was made at table side - good show, but had no real vanilla in it... outside was to cold to sit, but they immediately found a table for us inside when we complained even though the restaurant was full, very nice people
Best like butter and "communal" dining. Interesting motif. Overall was a bit disappointed. Spending $300.00+ for a dinner for two, wanted a bit more intimate setting and in almost all seating, you are staring at someone else, or the servers backside when taking the opposing table's order. Food was "good". Service was "good". (They use lots of butter). But neither were "great". We ordered a T Bone and Prime Rib, with sides, plus salads and appetizers. Mushrooms were bland. Coal Roasted Leeks were a disappointment. Would have like to see a bit more greens offered as sides, like Brussel Sprouts or Asparagus. Table side salad prep is very nice. Would like to have seen a wider wine offering, with more California wines, especially by the glass. Upstairs is very vibrant with more traditional outdoor seating and if I went back, that's where I'd choose to dine. I was hoping to be "wowed", but left a little underwhelmed.
We enjoyed the service and the food. Fun having the entertainment of the food served at the table. The noise level was extreme and difficult to hear across the booth. However the one feature that was most disturbing was sitting at the booth in front by the entrance and the sun was in my husbands eyes, as he was placed towards the windows, for most of the dinner which necessitated him wearing his sunglasses inside this finely decorated space??? He was rather discontent.
The staff is very professional and attentive to all patrons. The food was wonderful and the service OUTSTANDING
Probably the finest service in San Diego, THANK YOU for existing, especially in our Little Italy neighborhood!
Romantic, chic, fun, and WOW!!
Fabulous quality glassware and drinks.
Tableside dishes always fun and interactive. Awesome service TEAM.
Prices do feel excessive at times (particularly the wine list and the steaks served on an otherwise empty plate), but all in all the experience is truly WONDERFUL.
The location and design are great, as well is the service. The food and drink are absolutely outstanding.
We loved every moment. The food was incredible. We were celebrating our anniversary and every server who came to our table took a moment to wish us a happy anniversary. They even brought us complimentary champagne. The table-side Manhattan was a very cool experience. Of course, the prices match the quality so it will only be a special occasional place for us, but I would definitely recommend.
Incredibly tender steak. Cooked to perfection. Server was attentive, knowledgable on the menu and gave great recommendations. Minor critique: music is a bit loud for my taste but I think that's an industry standard nowadays.
I have been wanting to go here for a long time but it's always booked when we schedule a last minute date night. While, (sorry guys), this was not my favorite steak in SD, the service was beyond amazing. It was my anniversary and they really went above and beyond in terms of every little possible thing to make it special. From glasses of champagne when we got there, to a *handwritten* note from the manager, we were WOWed. I am not sure I would go back for the steaks alone, but when it comes to service, attention to detail and everything else, I would go or 100% recommend.
They've done the best you can expect with the small space but it's as loud as a cafeteria in there and you sit so close to you neighbors that you can hear everything they say. I would say that you couldn't fit a third person between me and my neighbor which makes the place really awkward. Not striking up a conversation with someone who is that close to you feels a little impolite. Not exactly a place for a romantic dinner. Food quality is very good and service is good however my cocktail was empty for a while before I was asked if I would like another. When I go for steak, for the last 15+ years, I've only eaten ribeyes which are heavy on fat and I will usually leave a good pile of the fat on the plate when I'm done. The steak was butchered perfectly and most excess fat was trimmed. There was just enough fat left to complement the meat.
my only problem was the WC. the toilet would not flush and the water for sink didn't work. i had to used another sink next to mine.
Some food items were better than others. The filet was fantastic. The restaurant was way too loud. Not the place to go to connect with a larger group of friends because you can't hear the person next to you. But the decor was fantastic and the food was mostly awesome!
This place is the definition of 5 star. Service was impeccable. My water never went dry, each staff member came over to wish my wife a happy birthday, and our tableside dishes were made with genuine care for our experience.
On top of it all was the food. Japanese Wagyu was incredible. Uni spaghetti is a MUST get along with the Cesar Salad.
Could not reccomend this place any higher. Ive eaten a hundreds of restaurants and this is hands down the best dining experience I've ever had.
awesome!!! Would love to go there again.
awesome!!! Would love to go there again.
Great vibe and decor. Steaks did not disappoint. Very slick spot for a steak dinner. And a nice wine list
Service was impeccable. The staff assigned to our table were very friendly and attentive to every detail and accommodating. The food very tasty and cooked well but we expected better quality. Some ingredients were not as fresh as they should have been.
The tables are a bit close together and we didn't have a feeling of privacy.
Believe the hype! The food was great and the service was even better! Love the humor and attention to detail!
Service was amazing! Very kind workers and the food was GREAT!
Everyone was perfect. Thank you Born and Raised for the best experience.
Beautiful decor, fabulous ambiance, fantastic food!
Great food. Music so loud you couldn't talk to your own party. Asked them to turn it down.
Great place, good food, expensive but hey you get what you pay for!
Ok. Best steaks in San Diego? Yes! Awesome bar and bar staff? Yes! When a restaurant caries Camus Special Select they know their customers. We all loved Marissa. She brought us our food and was so thoughtful and helpful to our needs. The hostess also went out of her way to make sure we were seated in the area we wanted to be.
AMAZING! The service is immecable- attentive and knowledge but not overwelming the table. The sommelier was very helpful. The ambiance is great. Both the dining room and outdoor patio upstairs are beautiful (prefer upstairs, less noise). All the food was great- went for my dad's 70th bday and he said it was the best steak he's ever had...so 70 years is saying something! :)
I celebrated my birthday dinner here and as soon as we checked in for our reservation they acknowledged that I was there for my birthday which was nice. Most places don’t do that even when you inform them. We had a very nice waitress. She was just hard to find at times when we wanted something. She recommended a drink for me after asking her opinion and I tried it. I didn’t like it so she took my first drink off and brought me my second choice which was better. My waitress also brought me a special birthday dessert on the house which was nice. The steak and mashed potatoes we had was very good. The only thing I didn’t like was one of the servers told me he would bring me some condiments and never did. It was so busy I couldn’t find anyone else to bring them to me in a timely manner so I went without. I also asked to have my desserts wrapped up to go and they forgot to put both of them in the bag. Overall I would recommend going.
Amazing. Beautiful decor and delicious food.
Service was excellent! They pay attention to every detail. Came in to celebrate my birthday and I was given a card signed by staff and a delicious macaroon. Table side ice cream was the highlight for me ❤️ Had a great time!
Vale toda la pena del mundo. Los precios no son los mejores pero los pagas para probar la comida ! De las mejores carnes que he probado en mi vida
Great place to have a special dinner. Their desserts are made in house and amazing, but the true stand out here is the bread!
In town and this restaurant was recommended by a friend. It’s right up our alley. We had a reservation but it took a while to get seated but after that everything was great!
We had a very nice birthday dinner. The kids and parents enjoyed it very much. Stake tartare, shrimp cocktail and snails were very good starters, however the lobster bisque was salty. For main course we have very steak fillet and halibut. The mousse dessert was very good, however the ice cream made on the side of the table could be better. The place on both floors has very nice ambiance.
Stellar food and service! Can’t wait to eat here again!
Birthday celebration for my girlfriend, she was extremely impressed and very appreciative.
We had the best time ever! Food fantastic, service superb!!! We have eaten at several 5 star restaurants and I must say this surpassed all. We definitely we’ll be dining here again & again.
Amazing service and amazing food!
