One of the best Japanese restaurants in San Diego. Their menu here is so appetizing that you sometimes have a difficulty in deciding what to choose. They have over 40 different types of Sushi rolls, sashimi, and teriyaki-covered meats such chicken, beef, and fish.

Filippi’s Pizza Grotto

This well known italian restaurant has been around for a long time. They have been serving customers for over 50 years. Yes, 50 years! They must be doing something right, no? I really enjoy the atmosphere here because it gives you that old school Italian feel. Filippi’s is great place for families, friends, or even if you want to take that special someone on a date. The pizzas are thick crust and their toppings are pretty much the usual ones you find at any pizza restaurant (pepperoni, sausage, onion, peppers, anchovies, etc). If you are a pizza lover, you must not pass up on Filippi’s.

Donovan’s Steak & Chop House

Now, for all of you steak lovers out there get ready, because you may have to make a trip to San Diego ASAP! This steakhouse is probably one of the best I have ever been to. From the food and drinks to the quality service, everything was incredible. For my main course I ordered a filet mignon with the peppercorn gravy and it was melt-in-your-mouth perfection. As I had requested, it was served medium rare and for a side I had sauteed mushrooms, which were excellent. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves a nice cooked steak!

Bice Ristorante

Do want to experience an authentic Italian family setting, with fine wine and incredible food? Then I believe Bice Ristorante is where you need to be. Anyone who comes here for dinner is already calling back to make another reservation. Yes, that is how good this place is. Do you believe me yet? They have an excellent wine list and their menu is outstanding. Then menu is sometimes overwhelming, but in a good way because there are so many great options to choose from. If you want to have unforgettable dinner experience, then Bice it is.

The Top of the Market

First things  first, who doesn’t enjoy sitting along side a beautiful San Diego Bay and enjoying some awesome seafood? I know I do.  This elegant restaurant is recognized as the premier destination for seafood. I like that this waterfront restaurant  has two floors because you can have a choice of enjoying a nice casual dinner on one floor or get fancy and head up to the second floor to catch some awesome views from Point Loma to the Coronado Bridge.
