Visited this place in 2012 and really liked it. It is no different today. The food is good, as is the service. The wine policy is outstanding! I had the pork schnitzel. The pork may have been cut a touch too thick, but the flavor...More

This is a fun place with some of the best food in the area. Fun vibe in the small bar area, but nice and quiet intimate dinner in dinning area. Can't beat the wine selection either! Go for a fun time at the bar, or...More

What an unusual idea - to have a wine shop inside a home-style local restaurant! Nice varied menu. Well priced. The Duck Confit and Bread Pudding dessert (made with croissant) were both excellent. (and…of course…the wine….)

Excellent menu, delicious, different entrees but something for everyone. Moderate prices. You can go into the wine shop in the restaurant and pick out your own wine for dinner. Make a reservation, they stay busy!

3rd Corner is one of our go-to restaurants in North County. The food and service are consistently very good. On our recent visit three members of our party had a filet mignon special and one had the NY steak from the menu. Enjoyed by all....More
