We vacationed in San Diego staying at the Country Inn. The Wine Seller was just up the street about a mile. We ordered the short rib ravioli, beet salad, tomato basil soup, duck confit and the duck breast. All where very good and fairly priced. The service was perfect. Wish we went here twice to eat rather then unloading my... More

Finally made it to Winesellar & Brasserie Saturday night. When we first walked in, all we saw was a nicely stocked wine shop. We were directed up some stairs where we found a very attractive dining room. We both ordered the filet which was excellent--tender and tasty--and a bottle of wine from their special $25 list. We thought it was... More

Downstairs is a great wine store and wine tasting bar. Upstairs is a very good French restaurant. for people who like wine, they have known about this place since 1989. Lovely authentic French style Brasserie setting, quiet, wonderful menu, excellent preparation, professional service and mouth watering desserts. You can actually hear the people on the other side of the table.... More

If you are looking for a restaurant to treat yourself and your favorite significant other this is the place. My wife and I selected dishes from the Father's Day Price Fix menu which was priced at $45. I had the Veal Bone Marrow appetizer which at first I was hesitant to order, but the waiter patiently talked me down from... More

I was hesitant to write a review about this restaurant because...well, I did not want anyone else to know about it. I wanted this place all to myself. I went to this restaurant with a co-worker during lunch time. It is located in the back of an industrial complex inside a wine shop. It is pretty hidden. The restaurant is... More

I attended a business dinner here and I the food quality was really good. Portions were small, but full of flavor and they looked excellent. Main dish was duck, which was a bit bloody for my liking, but it tasted really good.

Not sure why this restaurant doesn't get more recognition. I feel it is one of the finest in town. We went to dinner for my husband's birthday and decided on the three course Prix Fixe menu for $40 per person. I started off with a pear salad that was excellent as was my husband's pumpkin soup. We both had salmon... More

The WineSellar & Brasserie, in San Diego, did one of their fun food & wine tours with us here in Spain. I am one of the owners, I noticed the enthusiasm of Lori and Gary Parker the WineSellar owners, I decided to get out of the office and guide the trips personally. --- Their 2 groups of 15+ persons, all...

Hidden in a random strip mall and a little hard to get to - best wine selection and wine events in San Diego. Great menus with wine pairings. A great hidden gem.

The food at this restaurant overall is not bad. There are not many restaurants in San Diego of this genre, so one might say that in comparisson to them, the food is good. What is disappointing here is the value. Do not be tricked by the "prix fixe" option. If you order an appetizer, dinner and dessert separately, the prix... More
