When we visit our son in San Diego we try new restaurants that he hasn't eaten at yet.

He mentioned driving by this place so we ventured out on a walk to find it.

What a great little gem. Yoshi our waitress was so attentive and very helpful with the menu items and recommendations.

The food was awesome and the white Sangria's were real refreshing. Then Yoshi suggested some desserts. So we shared the banana dish and the chocolate item. Wow they were both delicious.

This place is definitely worth eating at.

Came here with my sister after a relaxing massage around the corner. Happy hour on Sundays is from 4 until 9. We were there as soon as it opened. Obviously, we were the first ones there, but it was a nice, quaint little place. We had the tropical white sangria carafe for $20. It filled our glasses 3 times each. We shared the fruit, meat and cheese platter, which was great. Another $20 well spent. My sister had the steak salad and I had the white fish cebiche. Both dishes were amazing and hit the spot. After 3 1/2 hours we were finally getting up to leave, but could have easily stayed til closing. It was not busy at all on Sunday. Just a few "regulars" and 3 couples came in while we were there. Definitely will be returning sometime in the future. A perfect way to end our day of relaxation.

I have pretty high standards for restaurants and tend to review more restaurants poorly than positively. That said, Wet Stone is our favourite place to eat when visiting San Diego - 3 times over five years always delights. Great food and service and ambience. Will always return!

We were seeking a place for wine and perhaps dinner following a day at San Diego Zoo. Wet Stone Winebar is not pretentious but is instead a very relaxed atmosphere with a unique selection of foreign wines and excellent food.

Our meal started with Shishito Peppers that were excellently prepared as well as Bacon Wrapped Dates. Our daughter had a Caprese salad with chicken which she enjoyed very much. My wife selected the Lamb Meatballs entree which was excellent and my son-in-law and I both tried the Churrasco, which I could best describe as a Brazilian BBQ plate. All the aforementioned was accompanied with Spring Fonteyn, an Ulumbaza 4-blend wine from Walker Bay, South Africa.

Although we were at first concerned that we were only the second occupied table in this small restaurant early on a Saturday night over the Veteran's Day weekend, we found our server to be very engaging and we left with a solemn promise to ourselves that we would soon return.

Seems it's more of a local hangout built in front of a house with a boho-chic artsy vibe. There's art on display on the walls and an eclectic California vibe that is perfect.

It's located at the top of a hill so walking here is tough (specially in the summer sun) but you can find plenty of parking curbside on both sides of the street if you drive. (There is also a decobike station right there so you could rent a bike as well to get here).

They serve sandwiches (Sanguichos in local nomenclature), salads and specialty dishes like cheese and fruit plates, but the thing that distinguishes them is an extensive wine and beer list.

Give it a try...
