We took 5 kids here for my birthday. Non-stop entertainment! Make sure your server decorates hats for your boys and bows for your girls! Our girls LOVED their new hair accessories and had fun having them created...don't miss this experience! If you have kids, you have to indulge in the cotton candy cake. Huge, cheap, and kids love it, worry... More

Brutally loud and active (our waiter greeted us by throwing twenty-five straws on our heads -- no joke), the Corvette is a diner "experience" rather than an actual diner. The food matches, i.e., it resembles a Philly cheesesteak or Reuben without actually succeeding in being one. You can have fried zucchini, fried pickles, fried onion rings, calamari fries and each...

We love bringing the kids here for birthdays or if we are just in the area. Fun atmosphere and good food. When all of the staff dances it's the best. Their food tastes great but I get the tuna melt and every time it is cold, once I even told the waitress to just microwave it so it's warm...she didn't,... More

Went here tonight and loved it!!! It was so fun. The servers sang and danced and the decor was so cool to look at. Everything we tried was really good also. Will definitely come here each time We visit San Diego!

We make this a part of our San Diego trip every time we go. The wait is a bit long, but at least they have an arcade attached so the time goes by quick (so can the money). The wait is worth it though. The food is great and "over the top", great Oldies music (too loud to have a... More

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.
