Lovely ambiance in this place. It's located in the Lumberyard shopping center in Encinitas. Lots of cute shops , restaurants, and places to stroll after a good meal. My husband and I both had the Chicken Penne and found it delicious, although we needed that walk afterwards. The server let us taste one of our wine choices before ordering two... More

With plenty of places to eat in downtown Encinitas, the 3rd Corner stands out with a great selection of reasonably priced wines and a delicious assortment of dishes in a bistro atmosphere. Add the early and late happy hours and you can't go wrong visiting the 3rd corner! Try the pork schnitzel for a deliciously satisfying dinner!

Recently went to a concert on Saturday night in Encinitas. we didn't have any time for dinner before the concert, and came out hungry. By 11 it seems everything is closing. So we were surprised to find the 3rd Corner open and serving dinner with happy hour prices on wine. The food and service was very good. We will definitely... More

The 3rd Corner is a wine bar/ restaurant, this place is very popular with locals. Wine is sold by the bottle at reasonable prices. The food is good, sometimes very good. The staff are helpful. The rooms are well decorated and the sound is under control. The real charm of the place is that is a comfortable place to be... More

Select your wine, order one of their unique appetizers or delicious meal. Can't be beat and open until late too! Their location in Ocean Beach is excellent too.

I had the salmon with yams and butternuts, it was cooked perfectly. The entire staff was warm, informative, and helpful. We double tipped the waiter because he was so knowledgeable and went out of his way for us. The wine section was unique and diverse, we bought three bottles and joined the wine club.We plan to go again with friends.... More

Needed a light, midday meal. After strolling through town we arrived at 3rd corner. So relaxing and so good. We purchased a bottle of wine in the retail store. I only had the brussel sprouts appetizer, but it was the size of a full entree. My husband had the fish tacos and loved them. Our friends very much enjoyed their... More

3rd Corner is a locals favorite. The wine selection is outstanding. There's a great vibe - from the bar to the seated dining area. The food is outstanding. Our bill was higher than I'd expect, but it's a fun place for a special occasion. Another option is to come for happy hour - reasonably priced with the same wonderful wine... More

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.
