Crab Catcher in La Jolla, San Diego, back in 2008. We kinda had a hard time getting inside the restaurant. It was hard for us to find. Inside the restaurant was very dark and moody.
Since this was almost a year ago, I hardly remember, but I don't think it was that great. Food was OK, but not amazing or wanna go back many times. Crab cake and bisque were just OK, I had better ones before in many other places. I wish the surf & turf had more sauce (not butter). But food seems to be fresh. On the menu, they describe each seafood and where they caught it on each day.
Also the food arrived slow.
