Bua Thai has decent Thai food. It's not the best Thai food in the area, but the food is good and the prices are quite reasonable. Good place to go for lunch.
Nugents Fishgrille is a good kid friendly family restaurant. They also have non-fish items for those who don't eat fish. The staff is friendly and the food is good.
Leonesse is an excellent winery with excellent service. The servers are knowledgeable and are willing to bring out a bottle that is not on the tasting list, if you know what you would like to try. They provided crackers as well as sweets for tasters. The wine was very good.
Princeton's Liquor store is a great store with an awesome selection. The staff is very knowledgeable and can help you find exactly what you want, or suggest something for you if you are unsure what you want.
The Cask Room is a great little wine bar with live jazz music in San Diego. When they do have live music, it's tough to have a conversation because it is a small place, but just sit back and enjoy the music! The wine service is excellent and they let you taste before you choose which wine you would like to have.
Poesidon is a good restaurant with an amazing location. It is right on the beach so you can walk out and go for a beautiful walk right after you eat. The drinks are strong and the food is good. Pricey, but not unexpected for a place on the beach in Del Mar.
Jay's is a bit expensive but is very tasty. It's hard to beat the location. It is right across the street from the beach. Service is good, I would definitely eat there again.
Chana and Don have been the photographers for a few of my friends' weddings and they have done a great job. Their prices are very competitive, often less than their competitors.
We like to go to the Gaslamp to play pool when we get a group of friends together. The service is good. You can get food and drinks served to you upstairs while you play pool and they have a fairly varied menu.
We prefer "fresh mex" Mexican food, however Casa Machado is pretty good for the "traditional" type of Mexican food. It is not as greasy as you might get elsewhere.
