    Default Need a good restaurant in San Diego

    Need some help from my VH SoCali brothers and sisters. Next month, our family is going out to San Diego, planning to do the Zoo, Wild Animal Park, and Sea World, also some beach and touristy things. Can anybody recommend a nice restaurant out there in SD? While there, my wife will be turning 40, would like to take her for a special dinner. The kids don't like Mexican, otherwise anything goes. We've never been there, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    If you're looking for a fine dining classy place, you can't beat George's at the Cove in La Jolla. You'll need reservations at George's. Donovan's Steak & Chop House is also in La Jolla, good choice. A real unique place is the 94th Aero Squadron. It is based during the time of WWI and has tons of military memorabilia and the food is excellent. You HAVE to get their French Onion soup!

    That's just a few places. The Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego has tons of good resturants within walking distance of eachother. Also, go to our local papers website SignOnSanDiego.com

    Scroll down to the entertainment section on the left side of the page. It's packed with info on places to go in town. Hope you have a great time here!

    Spaghetti Factory in the Gaslamp District-good for the kids, good food.
    Nice beef joints might be the Chart House on Coronado Island or Ruth's Chris in the Gaslamp district, or the 5 star joint at the Hotel Del.

    Actually, there's about a million fine eating options in the Gaslamp district downtown. Just take a walk around, they got it all.

    Lots to choose from!

    There are a lot of great places to eat in San Diego! Here are some of my faves:

    -For steak, my favorite is Fleming's. There's one in La Jolla and one in the historic Gaslamp Quarter right by the ballpark & convention center.
    -You can't beat George's in La Jolla for overall location & quality. A little pricey, but definitely worth it. George's also has an Ocean Terrace with a more casual atmosphere and menu. Think of it as 5* dining at 3* prices.
    -The Marine Room is a unique spot in La Jolla where the waves actually break against the back windows of the restaurant! You can truly have oceanfront dining at this joint. Very formal, tho. You can check out the history on the walls as you enter the restaurant, which features pictures of windows broken in by heavy waves which flooded the restaurant as recently as the 1980's.
    -Roy's in La Jolla is still one of my all-time favorites. Roy's originally started on Maui and has since come to the mainland. They feature polynesian seafood with a flare including sushi & sashimi. The chocolate souffle is to die for.

    Hope this helps! Makes me hungry writing about it!

    Just go to Tim's house and have him throw a frozen pizza in the oven for you. You can entertain the kids with his TV.

    Funny post....back in the day, I could've knocked that one out. Truly, the beer would've been the only real challenge.
