Modern and comfortable, our signature restaurant KITCHEN 1540 blends energy and intrigue with a convivial dining atmosphere. The seamless flow from the bar to the dining room and outdoor patio spaces offer guests the perfect mix of experiences.

Design elements of the restaurant include an open presentation kitchen, contemporary table settings, a private dining room wrapped in wine-encased walls, and a spectacular white vaulted ceiling that opens onto a series of outdoor dining and lounge areas allowing guests to enjoy the ocean breezes and private cabanas for intimate dining. A waterfall and hanging lanterns set just the right mood. And a vertical, hydroponic garden produces herbs and flowers used throughout our restaurant menu and cocktails.

KITCHEN 1540 has garnered numerous awards including such prestigious honors as Wine Spectator Magazine: Award of Excellence; CA Restaurant Association: Gold Medallion - Best Hotel Restaurant, Fine Dining; San Diego Magazine: Best Hotel Restaurant; and Ranch & Coast Magazine: Editor's Pick for Best Restaurant.

Restaurant hours are:
Breakfast, 6:00 am - 9 am
Dinner, 6 pm - 10 pm
Sunday Brunch, 6:30 am - 2:30 pm
