Great Maple San Diego
Unbelievably loud at Sunday brunch. Not the place for a quiet meal (at least at that hour) . Food as always is excellent, service attentive, but good grief it is a noisy place.
I come to this location regularly and this was the last time. The food quality has depleted the drinks have lost they special taste. I usually get the Louisiana purchase and the shrimps use to be a good size now their salad shrimps nothing special anymore. The sausages are hard as rocks it’s like rubber. The orange slice in my mimosa had dirt on it. The service has depleted also. Our server saw us 3 times. Once to take the order once when I flagged him down because I didn’t receive my eggs. And finally i flagged him down again to get the check. You had an angle and you had uniqueness but now you’re off my list.
Maple bacon donuts are everything
Great place - the original Great Maple restaurant here in San Diego. Food quality is outstanding- fresh ingredients with some really unique menu items. The ambience was great - comfortable and intimate,Fog City Diner feel - I’m coming back for more!!!!
Very crowded and noisy. Not a place to have a conversation. However, the food is excellent and the service was outstanding. We will return but at a quieter time rather that Saturday.
The food is amazing. Perfect portions or giant French toast portion (enough to share). The service is great, the ambiance is nice. Make a reservation for sure. The only thing that is very annoying is the noise. It is SO loud! I think it’s because it’s smaller and it’s packed!! If there was a way to bring the noise level down, that would be ideal.
Overly priced for okay “hyped up” food. Wouldnt seat party while I was searching for parking even though there were 10 open tables
As visitors from the UK, we virtually chose this at random via Google as it was relatively close to where we were staying at the Handlery Hotel. Excellent and slightly unusual menu, good quality food and excellent. The only thing to slightly spoil it (and it was slightly) was that there were a couple of noisy groups of young people who were not doing anything wrong but just a little loud.
However, we will definitely recommend this place.
Very nice. Good food. Price was reasonable but not a great value
Amazing food and service was great. Overall this is a gem.
As always, the food and service was great!! My favorite place for a special occasion !!
Beautiful decor, excellent service, and the food- wow. We got an order of maple bacon donuts (SO WORTH IT) and each of the types of popovers. I would eat the brisket popover again and again. Can’t wait to go back and try everything else on the menu! The service was efficient, very friendly staff, definitely a new favorite.
The food was fantastic. What a Jem, great appetizers, wonderful entree. Such a great staff.
Interesting choices for great breakfast, brunch, and lunch. $10 for nine fresh, hot begnietes (freshly made french donut-like yummy pillows) such a great start. Full bar. Best beef burger in all of San Diego. Juicy, hot, so much flavor, and a must-get "carmelized onions" for an additional dollar.
OpenTable point a no brainer extra!! Enjoy, we did!
We found this place after a quick search and in a hurry to find a lunch spot. This place did NOT disappoint. We loved the cool vibe and look of this little cafe. The food was delicious, hearty, and unique. They had a lot of different options for "blunch" as they called it. We left full and satisfied. We are not familiar to the area so we were to happy to find this gem.
Everything was amazing...the food...the service, etc. And so glad we made reservations!
Very nice diversified menu. The wait staff is very pleasant and this is a good place for comfort food at a somewhat higher level. Nice wine selection and full bar service.
We arrived right as happy hour was ending, our waiter was nice enough to tell us about it. We got a couple of drinks and apps- both were great. Loved the clean Margarita. The dinner menu had changed slightly from what we're used to...it was missing my husband's fav...the venison chili. He ended up loving the brisket sandwich, and I couldn't have been happier with the classic polenta with tomato pesto and mushrooms- Delicious!!! We were too full for dessert, but those bacon maple donuts were calling my name...maybe next time.
Really good food, fresh farm to table. Great atmosphere and service; parking is always a challenge. One of my favorite places.
GM,SD very busy! Server was very smooth and friendly. Arrival of order and follow up request for service was spotty but ok. Trio of Great Maple doughnuts very unique and tasty, but wish they would provide orders of one or two instead of three. Too good to leave one behind but by next morning doughnut lost to old age. Specifically requested my egg scramble to be lightly cooked but served over cooked and dry. Bacon and sausage excellent with satisfying flavor. potato fare interesting and quite excellent. Coffee strong with abundant flavor for me. Wife no "gusta". Restaurant A/C slightly cool for us, but we are very seasoned citizens. Restaurant clean, inviting and recommendable. With tip about $80. We will return next time in S.D.
Great as always
Different at night the. The brunch bustle
Although I do like the extra cocktail choices of the breakfast menus
Amazing food;amazing experience.
Making reservations thru Open Table definitely saves a lot of time, food is delicious and staff is great.
Never made it inside, because there was absolutely NO PARKING!!! Tons of cars were parked on the streets, in the DMV and Post Office lots. They need to warn folks about the lack of parking, because their lot is tiny.
OMG! The food portions are huge! The flavors are excellent. You must try the French toast logs and the maple donuts. My husband had the chilaquiles and honestly they had the best texture along with taste. I’ve been there several times, it has never disappointed.
We’ve never had a disappointing meal here. The chef is inventive and clever. Delicious fresh ingredients carefully prepared into superb meals. Knowledgeable, attentive yet unobtrusive servers.
This was our first time eating dinner here and we were not disappointed! The craft cocktails, pastas, and appetizers were awesome!
Rare occasion to get together with my sisters. Food was great!
The crispy chicken is AMAZING!
Awesome staff, good service and very comprehensive menu featuring all breakfast basics. Had the pot pie, it was fantastic. A little too loud for our liking, but not terrible.
Don't miss this place! It is a gem!! The food is outrageous Best ribs ever.
Dinner with friends
The food and service were totally awesome. I would definitely recommend this place for Brunch.
Great food/drink & potions. Bathrooms are easily accessible & clean.
Everyone their does a great job, no complaints.
But the food is highly overpriced and not that great.
The thing to go to great maple is for the French toast logs that’s their shining star.
Reservation resulted in waiting for a table to be seated for 15 min past reservation time. Restaurant was very busy and noise level very high. Server was too busy and all courses came out at once even through requested otherwise while ordering. Food was very tasty as usual.
An unassuming building was a great surprise inside. The food is awesome!!
We were getting brunch for my cousin’s graduation, service was fine just slow. It looked like there were only 3 servers in the busy restaurant. As for the food, it was not as good as it normally is, the potato’s were undercooked and a bit hard. The eggs were almost rubbery. Not a fan this time around.
A girl friend and I met up around 930 with our babies and the place was very friendly and accommodating! Great food, great ambience, multiple people had their babies with them as it was a Monday morning and no one minded. I’m sure the place gets crowded on weekends but if you want some delicious food and friendly staff then this is the perfect weekday morning spot!
Fantastic food, as always. Huge portions. Very, very delicious and satisfying food! A happy experience every time. Also, well trained and attentive service. Love this place.
