Mexican | Banker's Hill, San Diego

Great atmosphere, the decor was super cute too, Mexican theme of course. The tacos were really good too, my favorites were the potato & spicy chicken taco. You can tell the tortillas were made from scratch. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because there was only 1 server for like a whole section which resulted in taking quite a while to get our drinks. But Kudos to our server who tried his best to hustle through all the chaos. More

Farm-to-table | Downtown / Gaslamp, San Diego

My boyfriend and I ate here on a Saturday. If you are looking for a relaxing meal and willing to spend a couple of hours it is great. Food is really fresh and they have a large wine selection. I'm vegetarian so I got the Ratatouille; the pasta tasted fresh and I really enjoyed it. My boyfriend got some seafood pasta and he said it was great too. More

Steakhouse | Downtown / Gaslamp, San Diego

Don’t let the looks fool you. We’ve been by this place a million times and although I knew it was a prime restaurant, we always thought it was a small place. Well, wait until you get inside. Ample area, two floors, just a great place. The service and food were fantastic, drinks were spot on and we greatly enjoyed our experience. Will do again More

French | Pacific Beach, San Diego

Usually an enjoyable meal at a reasonable price, if you take advantage of the specials they offer. The Roast Chicken was enjoyable. I would not recommend the Duck Confit, as it is overcooked an dry. This was the second time/chance I tasted it, and there won't be a third. The Filet Mignon with Bernaise sauce very good. More
