You can shop for your wine with a $5 corkage fee. There are numerous appetizers to choose from to pair with the wine, including an artisan cheese plate. My daughter had a variety of pasta dishes to choose from. The scallops were prepared perfectly and the lamb loin was quite flavorful. We would like to try brunch next time.

I took my husband and sons to dinner here on a Saturday night. Everything was thoroughly enjoyable. From starters to entrees, we enjoyed it all. It's a nice touch that you can shop for your wine in their wine shop and have it served with dinner.

This restaurant has a lovely, fresh menu. We were there for lunch and the initial service was a bit slow but the salads tasted very nice and the options were plentiful on the lunch menu. Looks like a good place for dinner.

What a wonderful evening we had starting with snacks and drinks during happy hour followed by a delicious meal. The nice thing about happy hour is reduced price drinks, but also a wide selection of reduced price appetizers and entire entrees. But you can also order items from the regular menu. What a good deal and plenty of flexibility to... More

On a Sunday night this restaurant saved us. Everything else was closed, the place was a ghost town and then we drove by 3rd Corner and considering we had no other option we had to go in. Much to our delight we had a wonderful meal and efficient service. Everybody in my party was extremely satisfied with order. Highly recommend... More

Love the concept of this place where you go and pick Your bottle yourself, then it is opened at your table. Our server was knowledgable and helpful. The food was good though we just had snacks. He cheese plate was tasty, the hummus was just so so for me. The star were the crispy Brussels sprouts! Sooooo delicious.

Delicious California cuisine in Encinitas. My wife and I are vacationing in Encinitas and saw this place rated #1. Can't speak for context, but it's very, very good and the staff is very friendly and provides great service. Highly recommend! Only thing missing is an espresso machine, which apparently broke and they've given up on. Awesome lunch!

And it was everything they said it was. Fantastic ! First night with the in-laws was great. Buy the wine there at retail price and $5 corkage fee made it worthwhile. Patron there recommended Baby Blue for $26 and it served well with the house salad and mussels. The broth is everything when it comes to mussels. My Italian father-n-law... More

3rd Corner is amazing. We go there for brunch, lunch, dinner and wine dinners. This place is unpretentious, but never fails to deliver a first class dining experience at a reasonable price.A great chef, friendly servers, and knowledgeable wine staff mean that as often as we go, there's always something new to discover. Highly recommended!

We got the prix fix and it was one of the highlights of the trip. The shrimp had a delicious flavor to it and the salmon was amazing. However the best part was the vanilla gelato with a warm gooey brownie that simply made the meal. 10/10 would go back!
