Where to Eat in San Diego

San Diego is well known for its varied cuisine and Mexican influences are inevitable given its location. You can also find excellent French, Italian, and of course American restaurants in the area, and seafood plays a prominent role on most menus.

Bertrand at Mr. A's is a great choice for high quality modern American cuisine in the downtown area of San Diego. The fantastic views and the wrap around balcony, as well as the inviting decor, make eating there a complete experience.

Vigilucci’s Ristorante Coronado is a real taste of Italy for couples staying in the Coronado area. The menu features Italian favorites, certified prime steaks, and the freshest seafood. The patio overlooks Orange Avenue, the ocean, and Point Loma, and the beautiful interior includes a wall-to-wall waterfall. Relax in the martini bar before your meal.

Candelas on the Bay is also ideal for dinner following a Coronado proposal. You can reserve an intimate hacienda for a romantic dinner for two and enjoy the contemporary Mexican nouvelle cuisine. The restaurant is owned by the Mestre Restaurant Group which also has a Mexican French Fusion restaurant with the same name in the Gaslamp Quarter.

Georges at The Cove is worth a visit if you’re proposing north of San Diego around the La Jolla Bay area. Incorporating two romantic restaurants, California Modern and Ocean Terrace, both of which serve only the best local seasonal ingredients, you’re sure to have a great evening.

The Melting Pot restaurants are ideal if you like fondue, and are a romantic choice as you’ll be sharing your meal with your new fiancée. With one location in the Gaslamp District, and another at La Jolla, you’re sure to be in the right place whether you want a four course meal or just to finish your evening with a decadent chocolate fondue.
