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

We loved picking bottles of wine out from the shelves. The wine selection was far from average and each wine we tried was delicious. The atmosphere was friendly and our server was great. We shared a cheese board and it was well done. Would definitely go back to try other menu items.

Downtown Encinitas is a hidden gem in North County San Diego. One of the best new restaurants there is 3rd Corner. It is really a wine lover's perfect restaurant! You can shop for wine within the restaurant to have with your meal or to take away, but stay for the great food and the superior service. (When was the last... More

This is my favorite neighborhood haunt. My friends and I love eating at the bar, and the food is reasonably priced and fantastic. I especially love the mussels, fries, Caesar salad, and goat cheese cheesecake. And there's a diverse selection of beer and wine.

This spot on the corner in the Lumberyard on the 101 is unique. You can buy your wine in one area and diner and drink in another. The food is good and what you do not drink they brown bag for you.
