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!

This is such a convenient location near our summer home so because of that we have given them any number of opportunities to impress. The tough Halibut I had last night was the last straw. We're two blocks from the Pacific Ocean. No reason to serve fish that's obviously previously frozen. Also, the staff needs to be trained so they... More

We found ourselves in Leucadia around lunch time so we checked TripAdvisor.com for a place to eat. Great find! I had a great chicken chiabatta with sun dried tomatoes , pesto and goat cheese. My wife had a mahi dish that was out of this world! What is extra special about this palace is that it is a retail wine... More

The scallops were absolutely PERFECTION! Three first-time adult diners late in the evening were treated like old friends. Impressive wine selection at reasonable prices. The waiter was trying to entice us with the dessert selections and his personal recommendation was Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding. My sweet husband said "my wife makes very good bread pudding, so I will have something... More
