San Diego - Wedding Celebration on a Patio?

Hi guys,

I live in North County, so I don't get down to San Diego proper as often as I'd like, so I'm not really familiar with the restaurant options.

I'm getting married in a couple weeks (just a small civil ceremony, most likely at the County Building at 1600 Pacific Highway) and would like to find a place to go out to eat/drink with friends afterwards. Preferably we'd like someplace with a patio we can occupy for a couple hours, and a nice view (maybe on the water?).

Pricy or cheap - doesn't matter to us for this occasion. Seafood or steak, any kind of ethnic cuisine ok.

Ideas? I appreciate your input!

  1. We had our informal wedding dinner on the patio of The Prado.

    Ordered off the menu and brought in our own wine.

    Was a very nice experience for the entire party.

    Congrats on the getting married!

      Thanks for the suggestion!

      I talked to a couple friends and got these ideas too:

      George's at the Cove
      Anthony's Fish Grotto
      Chart House in Cardiff
      Top of the Market
      The Prado

      Any further input greatly appreciated!

        The balcony at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla overlooking the garden flowers, beauganvilla (sp?), Scripps Park and the cove. Call and make a reservation with the Mediteranean room and ask them to reserve the seats at the far end. Best Wishes.
