Terrible Food, extremely disappointed!

NOT GOOD! Our salads were warm, but the dinners were cold. When we sent them back the manager came back less than 5 minutes later with reheated food. It was terrible! Steak and fish were cold, shrimp was rubbery and rice was mushy. For a restaurant like this we should have been served new plates. The only thing that was served warm were our wilted salads, which should have been cold! We had heard good things a... view more

AWFUL experience!!! :(

I really don't want to relive my evening at World Famous, but I'll do it so you can be spared & informed. First Impression: We walked in & came face to face with two young hostesses who should never ever have a job in customer service. They both stared at us for a second, we said hello, they said nothing. Wow. Okay. We got in line to wait for a table. The place was hoppin' for sure. Lot's of young college-a... view more

Sunset on the Beach!

They have great happy hour specials, but if you are in the mood to spend just a little more, I would try to get a seat by the patio area, overlooking the ocean. Get some of the appetizers, my favorites are the lobster bisque and the crusted brie. A couple of cocktails to relax by the beach front scenery. Sometimes the service is not the greatest, but I try not to let that bother me, after all I am having a drink by... view more

This resturant has become such a disappointment. On our last and final visit to this resturant - on a very nonbusy afternoon - we were made to feel as though we were imposing. Both of the girls ""hostessing"" were rude and have no idea how to greet a customer properly. I was worried that one of them was going to loose her shirt and expose herself - it's ridiculous that her manager let her greet customers the way s... view more

The White Linen has turned gray

I made reservations well in advance for the 4th of July when I arrived with my party there wasn't a reservation on file. Thankfully (I thought) we were able to be seated in the dining room rather than the patio as requested. \r \r The wait staff was unprofessional, spending the majority of their time with their buddies at the bar. It took 1 1/2 hours just to get the entree(s), only to return half of it because it w... view more

Great food and great atmosphere

I've been dining at World's Famous for years. Every vacation in San Diego ends with dinner there. Try the lobster bisque and the fish taco's. They have a great happy hour as well. Don't forget to go for the sunset!

Good Food and Location

The location is awesome, on the beach right next to the rolling waves. The food is good and the prices reasonable. Definately will return for a meal the next time in San Diego. The place is very romantic in the evening, dinner and drinks next to the beach.

Amazing Breakfast!

This place is great, a San Diego beachfront original with great food. I hadn't been here in years and was meeting a friend at the beach for breakfast so I suggested World Famous as it is easy for everyone to find and a fun spot. So we meet up and all had great meals, service was great and the view and ambience speaks for itself. I had the french toast which is arguably the best I have ever had, I also tried my fri... view more

World Famous

I don't necessarily agree that the place warrants the name, but they have decent food and a terrific view. Drinks on the patio are a great way to spend an early evening.
