About us


insideOUT elevated the Hillcrest San Diego dining scene upon opening in April 2018. Situated in the eye-catching Eitol Towers, insideOUT is a casual elegant restaurant and lounge with a main dining room that leads to an open-air atrium that includes a switchback walkway with seating nooks, a striking water feature, and ample outdoor seating for guests to experience San Diego’s only urban oasis. The menu, curated by Executive Chef Johnny Duran, is updated seasonally to reflect his creative approach to California-Mediterranean inspired fare, using the freshest ingredients provided by our local purveyors.  insideOUT provides individualized guest-focused service and respectful hospitality.
