Google+FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestEmailPrintSharing Is Caring


Family, friends and lovers are all going to be swarming San Diego this holiday season looking for a great place to grab a meal. Downtown San Diego has over 100 restaurants so you’re bound to find something that pleases every palate. All of these locations have tables big enough to seat large parties and varying atmospheres from trendy to classy, depending on your desired tastes.

  • Hip and Trendy: Searsucker’s new location downtown has people coming in droves to try out celebrity chef Brian Malarkey’s quirky creations like “cowboy caviar” and “farm bird lollipops.” The restaurant, much like Malarkey himself, oozes effortless charm and sex appeal. Tip: For groups over 11 they require a pre-set three course menu at $50 a head.
  • Seaside Sophistication: Harbor House is a great option for those staying near Seaport Village. On the second floor of this bay front restaurant, diners can enjoy a more informal atmosphere while a quiet and intimate dining experience awaits them on the bottom floor. This multifaceted eatery can accommodate groups of visitors that desire a private or semi-private meal with ease. Added bonus: their dinner menu has delicious items at several different price points.
  • Trusty Steak and Syrah: Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is a no fail option with private dining rooms available for groups of 14 to 40. Its prime location near Downtown San Diego’s Convention Center makes it a great place for a business dinner. Or perhaps you’re looking to impress the in-laws? With a menu that includes aged USDA prime beef, truffle-poached lobster and king crab stuffed with caviar, we think you’ll be off to a great start. Helpful hint: For a surefire way to impress your guests, talk to the sommelier about appropriate wine pairings for each meal.
