    Overall my girlfriend and I aren’t one to complain, but the service was an excuse for service haha. We were greeted at our table by a busser before our own server. Our server wasn’t attentive at all and if I didn’t have morals I would’ve probably tipped him $5 on a $95 bill.

    Had Valentines Day dinner last night. We arrived early for our reservation time and snagged some spots at the bar . Was very busy but no bartender greeted us or asked us if we wanted anything . They seemed understaffed and really busy and no one helping them. After about 10 min of being ignored we checked in early to be seated since it seemed like the best way to get a cocktail. Once we were seated our server Kyle took amazing care of us. I had the Crispy Chicken Dominick and while it was good it wasn’t as life changing as the reviews made it out to be . Would def try again. Maybe go with pasta . Nice space , a little loud tho . Overall good experience. Kyle was professional and gracious.

    Everything was stellar, the only downside is we never got our sides of Brussels sprouts or asparagus. We didn’t even realize until the drive home, as the rest of our dining experience was perfect.

    Although the service was quite good, the music was so loud that we really couldn’t talk to others at our table. They really need to decide if they want to be a restaurant or a club.

    We celebrated my daughter's birthday here last weekend and it was our first time visiting. The table was beautiful and the service was great. I ordered the spaghetti and was not as "wow'd" as I'd hoped. We ordered two servings of the fried mozzarella sticks, which unfortunately weren't very hot but still fairly good. The drinks were amazing -- shoutout to the bartender mixing them! -- and the desserts were divine. While everyone did enjoy their entree and the dining experience, the prices for the meals were a little high considering the quality of some of the food. We'd definitely visit again, though. The restaurant is beautiful, but the music was a bit curious for upscale dining.

    We had a great experience at the Lavo in Vegas. So much so we couldn’t stop thinking about it so when we learned there was one here in San Diego we were excited to recreate it. Unfortunately, there were too many misses to allow a positive review. We were sat and had to wait over 15 minutes before our server arrived. We ordered and my steak came out nearly well done when I ordered it medium. They were able to get a new one for me which did turn out better. The manager offered to get us a dessert which was kind so we ordered 2 hot coffees that came over ice cold. We them wanted to hit the eject button and didn’t even take them up on dessert. They did comp the steak and wine but we will hold out for Lavo Vegas on the next trip

    The octopus was cooked perfectly with wonderful flavor and texture. The meatball is always so tasty and perfect to share with a table of 4. My Bronzino was so flavorful and cooked perfectly with the skin on, it was flakey and delicious Others at the table ordered Pappardelle Bolognese and Penne Alla Vodka, they were both excellent!! The greatest disappointment of the dinner was the Chopped Antipasto salad which is usually our favorite. We have even ordered it "to go" on occasion. This salad was inedible. I'm not sure what they put on it possible red pepper flakes or maybe jalapeño seeds but it was so spicy we could not eat it, after the first bite we were gasping and trying to eat something to cool our mouths. We brought it to the attention or our waitress and it we were not charged for it. We were surprised that no manager came to our table to apologize and when we stopped the manager to inquire he told us that peppers were in season and they went a little overboard, a pretty lame and inaccurate reason. The lack of concern and his "excuse" didn't seem logical or sincere. We really enjoy Lavo so we brought our out of town guests for dinner on Friday and were bragging about this incredible salad on our way there. You can imagine our disappointment.

    Beautiful restaurant, great location in downtown, very helpful server. Unfortunately, we had 2 issues with our food. First, the Cesar salad had so much pepper in it, that is was inedible. Our server brought us a house salad instead and said the chef had recently changed the dressing, and there had been several complaints. Our side of pasta was hot and steamy, but the main dish, the chicken parmesan, was only warm, which made the dish only OK. I was honest with our server when she asked how our meal was, and she immediately had the manager come over. She apologized and then took the chicken parmesan off the menu. I would try them again, but first impressions weren't that great.

    The only good thing about our experience was the music and ambience. My wife and I were really looking forward to a great New Year’s celebration, but came away very disappointed. Not only did we buy tickets for $250 for both of us, including 20% gratuity, when I wouldn’t have left a penny after being ignored from the moment we walked in. I had to complain to a waiter 2 times just to get the 2 drinks we had all night because every bartender ignored me for 15 minutes each time I went to the bar. It seemed like the only way anyone could get any service is if you knew someone that worked there. We’ve been coming for years to the Gaslamp area from Orange County to celebrate New Year’s and have never been let down like we were this night. $250 for 4 total drinks, which I had to complain to receive is unacceptable and unfair. Live and learn. Will not be venturing to this establishment again. Thank you, Jose G
