Went as a party of 14. Loved the salsa and chip bar. The Original bucket was delicious, best Lobster we had all week! A little pricey.

Delicious fresh food. Friendly staff and they even take a complimentary picture of your table. It was a first date so the picture made it even more special

My fiancé and I went here on a date night and absolutely loved it! Everything we ordered was fantastic! Margaritas were awesome and the lobster bites were soooo good! We are looking forward to our next trip!

Visited Baja twice, the shrimp burrito bowl was amazing! Nice cocktails and good Mexican food. Sit outside and watch the action on Fifth Street in the Gaslamp district!

The ahi dip was awesome! A little pricey, but that's because it's located at the Gaslamp on Downtown San Diego. Other than that food and atmosphere was great!

Awesome tacos, seafood and all. It wasn't cheap but it sure was good. Service was not great as is common in SD . Very laid back service but was also very busy. Tres Amigos tacos and seafood pot was awesome.

Not only did I enjoy a good meal, I enjoyed watching some football and getting away from the craziness of the world. If... More

We've eaten here many times and the food is consistently excellent. It is better than many of the more traditional restaurants in Old Town. The service is generally snappy and friendly, although not always particularly warm. It can get very loud in the restaurant, between TVs, Sports, Live music, and crowded tables. They are dog friendly on the patio, so... More

If you like Baja food and in particular things like lobster and crab, You need to go here. Huge portions of amazing food every time, and we had a lot of food envy seeing other peoples food coming out before ours.
