In the past three years, I have lost two beloved friends as a result of Irene Cote's diagnostic ineptitude and lack of in-depth knowledge regarding guinea pigs - not to mention a front office staff that is alternately unresponsive, clueless, and/or unwilling to ""bother"" the doctor regarding questions, concerns, emergent situations and follow-up care. I have paid dearly both financially and emotionally for the gross errors made by Cote and her staff.\n\nTwo years ago, I lost one guinea pig due to Cote's errors in judgment, after spending over a thousand dollars for what I thought was adequate care. What I have since learned: The care was not adequate, by any measure.\n\nToday, after three office visits in the past week with another guinea pig, staying up for several days to attend to her round-the-clock care, and administering a prescription by Cote that caused more problems than it solved (and, as it turns out, is no better than placebo according to three published medical studies), and *then* making five phone calls to the office seeking some sort of guidance and getting no response whatsoever, I will burying another one of Dr. Cote's patients - a most beloved companion who needlessly died in my arms just over an hour ago. I am heartbroken. This did not have to happen.\n\nIf you love your exotic animal companion, save your money - and possibly your animal's life - and seek care elsewhere.

It was a real pleasure doing business with the owners. I was stuck in town without a kosher meal and at the last moment I was delivered the best food I ever had! I highly recommend Renaissance Catering!

I enjoyed doing business with Renaissance Catering. I was very excited and wanted to splurge with ordering for my guests and they were upfront with me regarding how much I really needed to order and gave me lots of extra free stuff I didn't expect. I will definitely do business with RC again!

The food is the best! I loved working with Rachel and her staff. I give two thmbs up, and I'm not even Jewish! Seriously, if you're looking for great catering, you gotta try R.C.

I hear they have closed their market but are going strong with their Catering Business. They have kept the name Renaissance Catering. Our pharmaceutical company ordered catering on trays from them and we all loved the food. They do not use MSG and their food is healthy and tasty. Their website is: www.kosherfoodsandiego.com

I have ordered catering from Renaissance and they do not only have the most tasty food but their presentation is like an art. Especially, their mediterranean appetizer platters. Their home-made rolls are the best! Go For It!

I looked for pure rose water and tamarind sauce where I could not find anywhere. I also love their produce. It is always fresh and they have great specials at the end of the day. I purchased a 5 pound of apples for 99 cents. Ask them what they produce they have on special at the end of the day and they will give you a great deal (because they receive fresh produce the next day).

We have been taken our animals here for over four years. Dr. Cote and her staff are wonderful. She has treated my iguana, two cats and my new doberman puppy. The staff is very attentive, caring and able to calm you down in stressful times. I have left messages after hours and i always get a call as soon as they open. You can always expect a card for the holidays, and info cards so you know that there are upcoming check ups for your animals, the card also lets you know what shots they will be getting. I live out in Santee, and the drive is well worth the care that is given to my animals.

This international market is amazing. I was searching for my childhood snack everywhere - all over San Diego - and happen to stumble upon it in this store allowing me to reexperience my childhood memories.

The service was superb and very friendly couple!

Great Produce & Bulk Items

Overall, I get most of my produce here- it's fresh and often offers a wider selection than the typical grocery chains. It's also a great place bulk items like rice, grains, cereal, nuts, dried fruit, flours. If you bake, this is a must.

Great selection of organic and special-diet fresh and prepared foods.

As other reviewers have noted, you can't beat the prices anywhere.

I went for the first time yesterday. I went strictly for lunch. The sandwiches at the deli are big and delish! The woman behind the counter was so cool. She made my sandwich exactly how I ordered it. While I waited there was food samples and those were also really good! The quality seems A+. The reason for the 5 stars though has nothing to do with the food. It's because they provide great customer service. I spoke to the guy working there and he recommended some good affordable persian food recipe. My boyfriend is persian so I surprised him with Ghormeh Sabzi and scored! I will definitely make this a regular stop.

Their prices are VERY reasonable and I love the fact that they have ORGANIC produce at below Henry's prices!!

I enjoyed the tour Sanyam gave me and the recipe for "tandoori chicken" - also the fact that they have informational cards on some of the items makes it even more challenging and interesting. The cards describe the country the food is derived from, a recipe, nutritional value, and some historical facts.

The prices are VERY reasonable considering that the items are imported from different countries and it is just great to go to one place and get all your shopping in one stop shop.

I am so happy to find a place I can call my kinda store. They have a great selection of produce at very reasonable prices. I have noticed they are doing more organic and they have specialty foods. I can not eat gluten and they have many gluten free items...so I am in heaven.

I guess this place is good in that it has exoctic and kosher food. However, it doesn't have a ton of produce and what it does have IS NOT fresh. I have been there on several occassions to the same result.

There is a big selection. However, everything is hard to find and located in a strange place in the store. I have had to ask for help each time I went in.

Also, the prices are pretty high. It is kinda understandable because it is a small place. Also, I want to support it but I just find it hard.

This is a truly international market plus they have great produce which is pesticide free. I, myself, keep kosher and I was amazed by the quantity of items that were both good, international, healthy and tasty.

There's surely something for everyone from any country. I do not live nearby and met this place by chance but I make a weekly visit to do all my shopping in this amazing market.

We picked up some items like La-majune, turkish coffee, and mamul cookes. They had fresh juices from Russia and delicious nougats from South Africa. I think they have a GREAT selection of international items and they have also expanded their kosher line. I think the owners are going into the right direction by serving a large diversified neighborhood and the prices are VERY reasonable (considering everything is going up).

There's too much PROs for CONS so I highly recommend this place and if you need anything they are friendly folks that will share recipes with you and proudly display the items from different countries which are neatly labelled.
