Prepkitchen - La Jolla
Just love this little place. Always a great - flavorful - meal and friendly people- wait staff and patrons.
Great meal. Great outdoor dining under a canopy. Friendly service. Excellent choices on menu.
The food was really fantastic. We ate outside and the ambiance was very nice. The service was top notch! Highly recommend.
Great food, great service, quiet, a nice place to eat outdoors.
It was an ok experience. The food was good- but not great. The fish tacos were slightly big enough to share, but we were glad to have the fries as an appetizer.
Service was just ok, too. It’s a small place, but the server still overlooked my empty water glass on several passes.
I’d been for breakfast in the past and had a better experience...
We love this place! Small intimate setting...most importantly the quality and preparation of the food is excellent. Have enjoyed both brunch and dinners here and would definitely recommend.
Food was excellent. Service was good. We ate outside which was nice and quiet and also warm enough with the heater on. The scallops were amazing and banana split was so good.
I loved the food and the value on my previous (first) trip, but this time the food (Caesar salad) was rather disappointing. It was just big chunks of lettuce that I had to cut myself, which was surprisingly not that easy, with parmesan cheese and dressing sprinkled on top. It was too difficult to eat while having a conversation, and it wouldn't keep, so I left most of it on the plate.
Amazing food and service 👍🏼 loved the lobster roll chicken picata and the tuna app .
We had a great dinner at Prepkitchen. The smoked beet and goat cheese salad was delicious, so was the salmon and blueberry cake for dessert. Excellent service and food!
The food was great the service was also top notch. It's a little smaller than their other places in San Diego, but I think the food might have been a tad bit better.
Very small restaurant but fast friendly service and great food!
We really enjoyed the brussel sprouts . My friend enjoyed her beet salad, but thought it was different and had fewer greens than her previous visit. Limited indoor seating. Outdoor seating with patio heaters. Outdoor seating does make it quieter and easier for talking.
Food is stellar!
Every time I go to Prepkitchen in La Jolla, I'm always blown away by the food and service. I'm reminded each time why I keep coming back. The menu always seems to have items that will please everyone without compromising quality (so delicious!) nor quantity (ever get overwhelmed by the pages of items menus can have?). The best date spot with your significant other or with friends.
We ate here late on a Tuesday night, it was quiet, there weren't many other people there at the time. Not a huge menu but what we had was good! The inside is very small but they have a cute patio in a nice little area of La Jolla.
Huge frequent flyer fan!!! Get the blueberry upside down cake! Chikaquiles, Brussels, shrimp Louie!! Also pretty darn decent lobster roll!!! Maybe a choice of a different side than just fries!!!
Prep Kitchen can be counted on for delicious food time and again, and this was no exception save for some minor issues.
We went for Mother’s Day brunch. Prep Kitchen La Jolla doesn’t have an espresso machine, so no Latte’s, Capuccino, or Macchiato. Some of the full price dishes were very small like the Fresh Berry Toast - 1 piece, small, albeit quite good. Chilaquiles were solid!
Great food, service and a lovely patio. The French toast was heavenly with bananas, pecans and caramel.
My new favorite place in La Jolla. Fantastic, interesting food and delightful atmosphere. Kid-friendly also. Fantastic “cocktails.” The sake margarita is just brilliant.
Brussels Sprouts - the BEST ever !!!!
Service was personable without intrusion.
Great place for dinner before attending anything at The Conrad.
Entree's we tried:
Short rib - delicious and fell off bone.
Salmon with a glaze - delicious cooked to perfection.
Disappointing compared to other locations. Very limited menu, competent but uninspired results.
Great food, great service !
First-time diners at Prepkitchen, pleasantly surprised. Very nice menu, good value, good location,will go again.
Such a cute space! Definitely make reservations as seating is extremely limited. Service was excellent, food was fantastic and a well valued. I would recommend for everyday dining or a date night. Very intimate and quiet.
The food is outstanding with a really nice, quaint setting.
They made a great effort to accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions. The brussels sprouts were terrific. The chicken piccata was bland. I never would have thought a cream sauce was what is intended for a piccata dish. I added lime to mine and it helped.
Great food and really nice people
Really good experience-excellent food nice service would definitely come back again!
Our whole group of four enjoyed their dishes. No matter whether you try the Brussels sprouts, or Bacon wrapped dates to start with or dig in to the short ribs, Pasta or chicken, all were amazing.
Well, that was a surprise and a delight. Don't miss it! Going back as soon as we can. Brussels Sprouts with bacon and parmesan cheese, Diver Scallops and the show stopper..Grains and Seeds..ya gotta try it!!
And you'll love the staff. They must like being outside while they work.
This is a very comfortable restaurant that we found very welcoming and the food to be excellent. Patio seating is comfortable (heaters helped because of chill despite gorgeous weather). We enjoyed beers, appetizers (brussel sprouts w bacon are not to be missed), scallops with rissoto, spare rib and found them each outstanding. Service was attentive, friendly without being too in your face or omnipresent. I would gladly return and recommend it to anyone looking for an comfortable, outdoor/indoor experience with excellent food and friendly ambience.
Amazing everything! Food and service were excellent. Lovely outdoor seating small place so I think for sure a reservation every time.
This is a must try restaurant in La Jolla. We had a great dinner on the patio. Space heaters kept us warm. Food was amazing. Definitely try the brussel sprouts. Also the beet salad was great as it was smoked table side. Salmon was fresh and cooked perfectly. Their menu changes seasonally.
Service was direct and to the point...not bad not great. Food portion sizes somewhat lacking for the price $29 for 6 ounce petite filet was nice but only came with side of broccolini. Wine pour was good. Overall nothing impressive, but well executed.
Overall only 3 stars because they were understaffed and the wait was too long! We were a party of 7 with a 10am reservation on a Sunday. Our server was amazing and did the best he could, maintained a great sense of humor and totally won us over! Food was delicious all around! Luckily we had time to spare because we had already finished our 2nd round of coffee and the food was still nowhere to be found and we were starving! There were only 6, maybe 8 other people occupying 3 other tables so the wait should not have been that long.
Good food, good service and good location. Somewhat limited menu.
Nice atmosphere on the ouside courtcard patio. Heater available
OK so one caveat here. We shoed up at a really busy time and our food took a long long time to come. But (1) the server gave us a big discount to compensate for the delay; (2) everyone there was incredibly nice; (3) the ambiance was great, (4) the food when it came was phenomenal.
