Food was great as always. We had a reservation for outside dining and the host seemed confused and tried to seat us indoors, but other than that they have a great record of consistent good food in my book.

I was outside. I was near a table full of very obnoxious people!! That was very frustrating. Food was good but the waitress didn’t check on my table enough. I would come back but not on a busy day.

First time dining here. Went for brunch and it exceeded our expectations!! From the cocktails, beignets to breakfast items, all well prepared & presented. And as busy as it was, service was fantastic! It’s nice to know that during the pandemic, you can go to a pleasant outdoor space and dine and feel like you’re not missin a beat! Definitely recommend!!

Cute place probably an old dennys fixed up with more personality. Service was supper friendly casual and efficient. Food was delicious and maybe a bit pricey for some but the quality is there.

Great Maple continues to provide great food and great service. The Hillcrest location may not look as nice as the one in UTC La Jolla, but I promise you the service is far better at Hillcrest and offers a far better atmosphere. Try both and you will see for yourself that this is not just an opinion.

The food here is spectacular! Though everything is a bit on the pricey side, it is totally worth it. Do yourself a favor and at least eat here once so you can see what I mean.

New Year’s Day brunch with family was great! There was a slight problem with someone taking my reservation, but the staff were attentive enough to check on us and got the issue fixed. Food was AMAZING! Will be back next time we visit CA.

Love this place. My (our) first experience with GM was in Pasadena. It was a wonderful surprise that there are two in SD. The line and wait are usually long, but it's worth it. The service is friendly, helpful, and swift - even considering the number of patrons eating at the restaurant. Food is portioned perfectly, well made, creative, and very yummy. We'll keep coming back!

Oh, and the Sardinian Sunset is phenomenal - my new breakfast cocktail.

Always a great place to be at. Has been in my top faves for YEARS now. I met up with a friend here bc they’ve never been before and they were so freaking happy. We randomly met up on a Wednesday and had reservation bc I knew it would still be popping. We ended up staying for three hours and ordering all the dessert and their apple pie x2. Next time, she wants to brunch here again.
