San Diego Restaurant Reviews
Surf and sun dominate San Diego. However, many farms, craft breweries and vineyards can be found within the city limits of America's Finest City. To go along with the amazing weather and agriculture is some very noteworthy food. Chefs take their time to do food the right way, with the right seasonal and local ingredients. Fine French cuisine, American eateries, Italian, gastropubs, Mexican, Asian and contemporary Californian food can all be found in abundance in almost every neighborhood. San Diego has always been a destination point for vacations, but it's quietly becoming a destination point for its food. Read-up on the newest and best places to dine that our writers have fell in love with.

Review Title: Date Night Experience
Overall, the Date Night experience at Vintana was very nice. The food and ambiance were great and we had a great table. However, I was a bit disappointed with the head wait staff. Our waiter was not as friendly or attentive as we expected, especially since I have dined at Vintana numerous times in the past. I would hope that more seasoned head waiters would help to create a better dining experience, given that the restaurant is wonderful overall.

Review Title: Great Place
Had a wonderful experience at Bertrand's at Mister A's. It feels very outside of the hustle and bustle of the Gaslamp district but still only 5 minuet's away. The lighting is soften and warm and the views are terrific. Food was well prepared and delicious and the service was great.

Review Title: 50th Wedding Anniversary
First of all our maitre d' made our dining experience very enjoyable. His timing was impeccable. Next our waiter "Mike" made us feel right at home. He was very professional & personable. Last but not least the food presentation piqued our desire to try each course of the meal. Each course was delicious. Each employee in the restaurant seemed to know us & wished us Happy Anniversary. We would highly recommend Peohe`s for a very pleasant & truly exquisite memorable meal.
