Restaurant for anniversary

Will be staying at the estancia hotel in la jolla and wanted recommendations for a restaurant to celebrate my 19th wedding anniversary. Romantic with great food. Thanks for your help.

      I would add Eddie V's to the list...very impressive views and a diverse menu--seafood and steak.

    2. In addition to Beach Chick's list, look at these:

      A.R. Valentein, Lodge at Torrey Pines
      George's California Modern in La Jolla
      Nine-Ten at the Grande Colonial in La Jolla
      Bertrand At Mister A's near Balboa Park

      A lot of places in both lists have better food than the Marine Room, but none has a nicer location or more romantic feel.

      Marine Room Restaurant
      2000 Spindrift Drive, La Jolla, CA 92037

      Balboa Park
      1549 El Prado Ste 8, San Diego, CA 92101

      Mister A's Restaurant
      2550 5th Ave, San Diego, CA 92103

        All great ideas. In LJ, not the most romantic feel of the above, but what's more romantic than excellent French cuisine?

          Went to Nine-Ten for our 9th anniversary recently and had an amazing "Chef's Mercy" experience. Each of us were served something different and a different wine with each of 5 courses, which allowed us to try 10 different dishes and 10 different wines. Loved it! Have also dined at Mister A's and George's, but long ago. Mister A's was romantic.
          Happy 19th! I hope you have a wonderful experience!
