Opinions please!

What does everyone think of the Prado in Balboa Park?

      Lazy afternoon, sitting with your dog on the patio with a pradorita in your hand, not bad.

    2. Good for a drink. Although the bartenders are usually inept.

      I would never go to a sit down meal there.

      I really like the plaza next to it.

        Not to say that the food is horrible.

        I just would never do a sit down meal there, because there are too many better places.

          I was actually quite pleasantly surprised to have an excellent margarita there, one of the few I've enjoyed in SD. The bartender that day was not inept.

        2. we like to go for drinks and app's on the way to the Globe..had lunch there a couple of times and it was decent and we sat outside on the back patio..

          1. nice location, decent food

            1. The decor iooks like a neon-themed drag queen circus turned into a real person, and then vomited everywhere.

              They are the only show in the park, so the food is okay for a last resort.
