Respond to Review of Sipz Fusion Cafe - Clairemont Mesa
Review: We've been going to Sipz about once a month for the last year. The food is hit-or-miss (the lettuce wrap appetizer with peanut sauce is very good, anything with "chicken" is hard and rubbery), and they rely far too much on fake meat for my taste, but it's a decent place to go when you don't feel up to cooking and cleaning. My one big complaint is the service, which has been horribly slow whether we've been there in the evening or at an off hour when the place is nearly empty. A few evenings ago, we all went out to Sipz for sushi, and we only placed a small sushi order between the three of us, retaining a menu and telling the waiter we'd order more later. More than an hour later, he still hadn't checked in on us, so my husband had to ask the person behind the counter for the check. We were asked by that person if we wanted dessert. So we could wait another hour? We all went home still hungry and annoyed. I've been to the Sipz Sorrento Valley location once now, and although that's in a food court, they seem to have almost the full menu that Clairemont does without the ridiculous wait times. The con there is atmosphere (a food court) and that there was literally nowhere to sit during the lunch rush, but the food was par with Clairemont, and the service much faster, of course.
