This book also has nice summaries of each neighborhood. These were very useful as I had not been to San Diego in a long time.
This book does not have color pictures or illustrations. That was fine for me.
Listings for ubiquitous national food chains Whole Foods and Panera breads. Sammys Woodfired Pizza chain serves gourmet pizzas? what? Anthony's Fish Grotto, a San Diego seafood restaurant chain is listed but why list the one in La Mesa? Why not the flagship or its Fishette in downtown San Diego and add the La Mesa address? What tourist or what San Diegan foodie would drive all the way to La Mesa when they can eat better at the downtown restaurant which has better turnover?
San Diego is known for its Mexican restaurants. More up to date valuable info may be found on Chowhound and Trip Advisor, the San Diego local newspaper's dining section. The author needs to do more research.
There's more info on the venues and not the food. The menu listings are provided but no descriptions on how these tasted. The abundant use of descriptors lavish, surpasses all expectations, extra special, decked out, extra tasty, simple and straightforward menu...we want to know how the food tastes.
All this info may be gleaned on restaurant websites. One description @ Prospect Bar & Grill, "Grilled soba noodles over buckwheat pasta," um, a true foodie would know soba noodles are buckwheat pasta. This and other descriptions of Asian cuisine points out the author's lack of knowledge of the subject.
E Book massive fail. The index may only be found under the table of contents. There the restaurants are listed by name and a page number. This ebook does not show what page you are on only the %.
I want my money back.

There were not as many reviews as I had hoped for. Stick to online review boards and you will be fine.Published on July 1, 2014 by BuddingRose66
