I go to the Corvette Diner every time I am in San Diego visiting family, sometimes more than once a trip! I have always loved their food and service and the atmosphere is great! I went for my birthday this year and they bring you a sundae and sing for you. If you have long hair, regardless of age, they... More

By all means, if you want to go to a fun filled, loud, family restaurant, get to the Corvette Diner in San Diego. This is a retro, 50s diner with good food, a great entertaining atmosphere, and outgoing waiters and waitress who just don't serve you, they dance together to 50s music. In fact, there is a DJ spinning 50s... More

We visited this restaurant during our visit to San Diego. The atmosphere is great, we loved the singing staff and the dj, the milkshakes were excellent. The food was typical diner food which is exactly what we expected. All and all a good experience.

Good food, very friendly staff and resonably priced. Would go again when in area. Enjoyed being with our Nephew and Niece and little Mathew at this place. Our Nephew Noel is a medic at the navel base not far from this fun restaurant.

An employee at Seaworld recommended this to us. It was not easy to find but the sat nav came through! It was worth the effort. My kids - 18 & 22 - thought it was great. They have their own DY & the staff get very involved in the era - 60's. Food was good & plentiful. God price.

We were two mom's with two 8/9 year old boys from out of town looking for a fun dinner. Corvette Diner served us an evening we won't soon forget. After being seated in the dark room, our AMAZING server Reggie arrived at our table and greeted us by throwing handfuls of napkins at the boys... and the belly laughs began.... More

I love taking young kids here because they always seem to have a great time. I'm not much a fan of the food. The food isn't bad - just not really that good even though there are some really creative menu items. For the lively diner experience, service and entertainment effort I gave them another star. It's ridiculously noisy here... More

Visited on June 6, 2014. This was our families last day in San Diego before flying home and we wanted our elderly parents to get a little nostalgic :) We love the location and all the vintage pictures and of course the Elvis out front and the Corvette when you wait to be seated. The music is great (very loud!)... More
