Fodor's Review

Sublime seafood, rooftop dining, and reduced prices at sunset draw locals to this busy restaurant on the second floor of the Gardens of El Paseo. Seafood that shines in dishes such as butter-poached Maine lobster tail, grilled Pacific swordfish, and barbecued sugar-spiced salmon arrives daily from San Diego; the menu also includes chicken, steaks, and meal-size salads. Preparations feature sauces such as orange-cumin glaze, Szechuan peppercorn butter, and green curry-coconut.

The restaurant bar boasts a 130-bottle vodka collection. Arrive between 3 and 5:30 to select from the lower-price sunset menu.
