My friend and I had lunch here one beautiful afternoon in San Diego. We both had salads, which were prepared exactly as requested. Our server couldn't have been more prompt or attentive. The outdoor patio was beautifully situated and we were fortunate to have been seated there, among the flora and sunshine. It was the perfect jumping off spot for an afternoon visiting the park and its museums. I will go back…must go back!

I always like to take out of town guests to The Prado. It sits inside Balboa Park, so you see the beauty of the park and the trees and the butterfly exhibit nearby. They have very reasonable happy hour -but make sure to sit outside in the back on the patio in the lounge section. Afterwards, walk around Balboa Park and take in the sites.

We had Thanksgiving Dinner at The Prado and it was wonderful. They had a traditional turkey dinner or you could order other selections on the special menu. I had the Lemon Shrimp Pasta and it was wonderful. The flavors were excellent. The wine selection was good and the dessert was yummy. The service was a little slow but it was a special menu.

Spent the day with a friend who lives in San Diego and said this was the place to eat! She was so, so right! What a great atmosphere, and wonderful location. We only went for the happy hour offerings, but the popcorn shrimp was amazing, as was the flatbread of the day...3 cheese, basil and tomato. Our server was wonderful, just loved the atmosphere and decor, and would head back in a minute if we get back to San Diego!
