Wine Vault & Bistro - San Diego, CA

Dinner - Sunday, November 13, 2011

We've been regular customers and staunch supporters of the Wine Vault & Bistro ever since our first meal here, 16 months ago. The ever-present owners, Chris and Mary Gluck, organize terrific winemaker dinners featuring everyone from boutique producers all the way up to the Mondavis - Chris's focus is typically on moderately-priced wines with an excellent quality-to-price ratio. Appropriately enough, this philosophy is also strongly reflected in the food. For my money, the Wine Vault probably has the highest QPR of any restaurant in the city (very good 5-course menus run only $30!).
