Visited this place in 2012 and really liked it. It is no different today. The food is good, as is the service. The wine policy is outstanding! I had the pork schnitzel. The pork may have been cut a touch too thick, but the flavor was there. The grilled mushrooms and onions really elevated the dish! I would, however, have... More

But....went there last night, haven't been in a while and was very disappointed that they have removed a couple of my favorite menu items....Fish Tacos and the Kitchen sink salad. I was also surprised at the size of the Caesar Salad...not as plentiful as in the past. Our waiter was very attentive, the Babcock Chardonnay wine was excellent. Over all,... More

This is a fun place with some of the best food in the area. Fun vibe in the small bar area, but nice and quiet intimate dinner in dinning area. Can't beat the wine selection either! Go for a fun time at the bar, or nice romantic dinner. The price fix meals with winemakers are also a great time at... More

We had shrimp scampi (great!) , fries (awesone) and the cheese platter (ok) ~good with the bread though. The wine was delicious and very reasonably priced (and... More

We went here with friends who were spending the winter in the area and raved about the place. We did have a very nice meal but did not leave with the same enthusiasm. The spicy sausage was very tasty and offered a very ample portion. The baked brussels were very popular but did not change my feelings about this vegetable.... More

What an unusual idea - to have a wine shop inside a home-style local restaurant! Nice varied menu. Well priced. The Duck Confit and Bread Pudding dessert (made with croissant) were both excellent. (and…of course…the wine….)

Excellent menu, delicious, different entrees but something for everyone. Moderate prices. You can go into the wine shop in the restaurant and pick out your own wine for dinner. Make a reservation, they stay busy!

Had a great dinner at Third Corner. Wonderful Italian food.The wild mushroom pasta was out of this world. After entrées were served, the service disappeared. If it werent for that, I would rate it 5 stars.

3rd Corner is one of our go-to restaurants in North County. The food and service are consistently very good. On our recent visit three members of our party had a filet mignon special and one had the NY steak from the menu. Enjoyed by all. Brousing the wine store is always fun - we had an Oregon Pinot at a... More
