“The dinner and service were amazing. Everyone from the event planning staff, to the restaurant manager, to the tech support staff who helped us set up, were terrific. Thank you so much!”

“Outstanding from initial contact through completion of event. The food and beverage choices and our selections were delicious... we had truly outstanding service and delicious food. At the event (all staff) attended to our needs graciously and promptly, and often were a step ahead of what we would request… Our guests without exception all complimented our family on a truly wonderful rehearsal dinner… As alums, we truly loved being back on campus... I will highly recommend this venue if a weekend conference or retreat in San Diego is planned in the future by our law firm.”
