La Valencia in La Jolla

We had a suggestion to try out La Valencia in La Jolla for lunch. is Tuesday...we went there for lunch (we-in our late 20's, early 30's) and shared the dining room with people 30 years our senior. The menu was typical modern American type stuff with a slight Spanish flair. My husband had paella which he enjoyed very much. I had the sole with a grapefruit chardonnay sauce with orange jasmine rice. LOVED the rice- I enjoyed the sole but it was VERY salty. I'm a person who appreciates salt, but this was overwhelming. I have to say though...the overall experience was very pleasant there, but it def. wasn't the trendy eatery that I had heard about.
