Hillcrest Valentines reccomendations?

I am an OC hound and not familiar with this area of SD, but we are staying in a B & B for Valentines weekend and I could use help in choosing a couple restaurants for Saturday and Sunday (Valentines) nights. Moderately expensive, all cuisines. Thanks for the help!

  1. Hillcrest?

    Got to Hane Sushi for Sushi.

    Yakatori is there as well and one of san diego's shining gems.

      Yakatori is delicious and great, but I don't think it's a romantic Valentine's evening...

        Good food is always Romantic, I'll third the WV, last meal there was very good.

          That point wasn't lost on me.

          But I think you could make it work depending on the people going.

      2. I would suggest Cafe Bleu in nearby Mission Hills. Dined there last night and was very happy. Good menu, moderate prices, intimate romantic setting.

        Cafe Bleu
        530 University Ave
        San Diego, CA 92103-3118
        (619) 291-1717

        1. Also Wine Vault and Bistro is close by.

          1. We went to Arrivederci for Italian last Valentines. Cozy, great food, inexpensive, and they had special heart cakes for two for V-Day that were absolutely delicious.

            Alternatively, Kous Kous is great for romance and ambiance with excellent Moroccan food.

            1. I noticed eclipse chocolat had a fun looking special dinner those nights, I've not been but it looks delicious!
