I've been going to Starlite intermittently for several years. It's a good local place, though it's close to the airport and Little Italy/Old Town/Downtown for tourists as well. The service is generally good, but as noted in some of the reviews it depends on the servers. The food is good, though the last time we ate there the sliders gave... More

Went there last night after going to a concert. We could find a seat on the patio. It was cold but they had heat lamps. Then moved inside after the patio bar closed 12:00. But inside was just as fun. Super cute place and must visit.

Very stylish décor, drinks, and food. They have a Happy Hour for drinks and snacks, good for after work meetings. I didn't see it, but there is an outdoor patio to eat in. The food was fantastic, presented like you'd see on food and travel shows. We went for the first time, and we were able to use a Groupon... More

Star lite is the best late night cool place to eat or drink in San Diego. Very cool vibe plus affordable and good food. Reservations recommended. This place does not disappoint

I will keep this simple. I had tons to drink and just needed some food. Stopped in and sat at the bar. Bartender made me a fabulous Moscow Mule and some Mac and cheese. I know those two items are way overdone in the age of the gastropub but what the heck. I was drunk and it was the perfect... More

I dined here recently and had a really miserable time. We waited fifteen minutes to place our cocktail order while three servers enjoyed there personal conversation. When the server arrived to attend to us she was very flippant and rude, I'm still utterly confused by her behavior. The music at Starlite is so loud, it's almost impossible to carry on... More

Excellent house cocktails and awesome locally sourced, creative menu. Really cool decorating makes you feel like you're in a hippy spaceship or something. Really attentive and knowledgeable staff who are willing to explain the menu and suggest offerings.

Went here during a trip to San Diego, nice atmosphere and the burgers are tasty. Would've liked to tried more but was keeping some space for dessert.

This is my go to late night spot for food and drinks in SD. I love the lounge/chill vibe. Servers are hip and friendly. Super chill. The food is definitely above average. Tough to imagine a place that serves better late night food. I have had many things on the menu, and they all please. I have yet to be... More

This past weekend, I was in San Diego. I was there once before, also for a weekend, so, it was great to be able to hit up some spots that I wasn’t able to before. First stop was at Starlite in Midtown. This restaurant and bar prides itself in its architecture and aesthetic, as well it should, because all the... More
