Dependably fine dining with excellent service.
Walked right in at our reservation time and it was crowded but we were seated immediately in a nice area of the restaurant. Service was wonderful, menu was limited but the ambiance was worth it. Went before a show, was a wonderful time.
this is my "go to" place when I want a lovely meal with excellent service and I'm in town.
We really like the Prado for pre-theater dining when attending an Old Globe performance. Great drinks and food and always friendly service. We really like the Prado.
Your chef is apparently in love with Brussels Sprouts broccoli kale: everything cruciferous. Many of us like spinach green beans peas Lima beans: and as such,not chopped up. There is currently much of the former and little of the latter on your menu.
I eat at the Prado often after walking through the park always enjoying the consistency and quality of the food and the location. My friend and I attended an event at MOPA and had dinner and a nice conversation over drinks and great food. I highly recommend this place no matter the occasion.
Nothing wrong, but only okay. We were seated in the atrium next to the main dining room which was not great. Be sure and try to get into the main dining room. Food was only ok. Service was good.
Whenever we have people visit from out of town, this is ALWAYS a go-to with them. The menu is unique, delicious and service impeccable. Can't say enough about The Prado.
I wanted to find a special place with great food for a date night with my husband. I was very disappointed with The Prado. The waitress forgot to take our entree order so we sat for a while after eating our appetizer wondering what happened to her. Our meals were not great. The location and ambiance remain my favorite part of The Prado.
Went for a late lunch after several hours at the zoo. Beautiful view, music, and ambiance. Great sangria and burgers. Pricey for everyday dining, but lovely for a special occasion.
Taylor was awesome
Lovely table outside facing the wishing well was perfect. Our servant was happy and attentive. The food arrived on time and tasted great
Great food at Prado. Lots of choices in both food and cocktails. Service a bit slow but always crowded. Still recommend if you are in Balboa Park
Sit outside under the twinkle lights and enjoy the company.
My wife and I greatly enjoy The Prado, because of the quality service, delicious food, and beautiful environment. The Tuesday Date Night special for $47.95 per couple is a great value. The mustard crusted pork chop on that menu is unique and delicious. Our server Michael made our date night very special - he was attentive, funny, and very helpful.
Service was fantastic! Food was just ok and priced high. Cocktails were ok in flavor but lacked potency. Overall it’s good for tourists but the food quality won’t invite me back anytime soon.
Food was delicious and our server was very attentive and friendly.
Excellent food and service. Inside is relatively loud. Outside dining is quiet and the heat lamps keep it comfortable in the cooler months. Nice decor and lighting.
Everything was wonderful. My only issue was that the food a little warm, like it had been prepared a long time ago. It didn’t feel fresh. It was a completely outstanding experience outside of that.
Dinner before a play at The Old Globe. A nice evening, we will be going back.
