A group of ten of us showed up on a Saturday night. The decor and atmosphere was absolutely amazing. The food was good, but the service was awful. Before our meal had started I had asked for a glass of water. Three different servers/hostesses came to check how we were doing on three separate occasions. I had asked for a glass of water on every one of those occasions. Finally, after we had nearly finished our meal a server comes upstairs with a pitcher of water!, but no glass to put the water in. I quickly chugged my beer and asked her to pour some water in it, she gave me a dirty look filled it and said "Cheers". I went downstairs to use the bathroom and saw a group of servers/hostesses just standing and talking to each other. I would have given a miserable tip, but lucky for them they auto-charge a tip for groups of eight or more.

I love everything at the field! I spend my birthday there every year! love the bangers and champ! The only issue I ever have has has to do with parking, or manuevering the gaslamp. My suggestion-take the trolley!

This is one of the few places I will drink downtown. They bring in Irish folks on working visas to work here and stay in the uS, which I think is kinda cool. Always good service; great doorman, good people watching.

love the decor of the place...well decorated. Even have the Bushmill bottles set up like beer taps. Food is delicious...I love the Shepards Pie. Service is great. This is the place to be on St Patricks Day to be sure!

You can eat at The Field during happy hour(until 7 pm) for next to nothing. I had Sausage Rolls(2) for $3.95 and a Mini(nothing mini about it!), Shepard's Pie for $6, plus a couple drinks and got change back from a $20!

They import their staff to claim they are truly Irish,,you get a sense everyone stays at a youth hostel,,,but the fod is decent. Shepard's pie is very filling and meaty. Get the fish(cod) and chips on the $9 special night.

The Field combines great food, excellent service and an atmosphere straight out of Dublin itself. I was really impressed with the Shepard's Pie...Delicious!! This place is truly a part of Ireland in San Diego.

I was very excited because of the look of the place--it felt very fun. Unfortunately, my time at the field was cut short by a less than helpful staff. I was there in the daytime and had a waitress tell me that I could not sit down. I asked to speak to the manager and she simply wanted to argue. When I asked her name, she refused to tell me. I will not return to this place!

I went there this past weekend and I was thoroughly surprised. I've been downtown many times before and I had never noticed this little quaint bar. If you're looking for a dim small tavern, this is it. I heard all the wood was imported from Ireland... I don't know if that's true or not. The prices of the drinks were decent and the food was good.

I actually bring people to The Field whenever I am giving out-of-towners the full tour. It is fun, interesting, has the best service, and really good food. All of the decor is supposedly imported from Ireland, and many of the employees seem to be too. Like most old countries Ireland has renovated its authentic dishes into restaurant quality food, and some of the best examples can be found at The Field. !!Don't forget to stop by The Field for St. Patrick's Day!! They really celebrate it.

Good place for a pint, but I've had "stomach trouble" at least twice after eating there. Found the boxties to be extremely dry, but the beer and atmosphere are worth a visit.
