Dobson's Bar and Restaurant is a hidden treasure in the heart of Downtown San Diego/Gaslamp Quarter. For the last 34 years, this has been the hot spot for business lunches and frequented by many local and nationwide celebrities. Paul Dobson, the namesake for Dobson's bar and restaurant, is one of America's few professional Bullfighters. The food is California cuisine with a touch of Italian, French, Spanish and Asian cuisine. One thing that both local San Diegans and Zagat can agree on is that this is one of the top restaurants in San Diego. Due to the limited seating and popularity, reservations are highly recommended. Owner Paul Dobson 'works a room better than Sinatra', which explains why this 'local tradition' downtown remains, 'after all these years', a 'high-powered, hobnob spot'; the Cal kitchen 'serves up delicious, innovative food, along with old standbys' ('have the mussel bisque and think of heaven').

Pleasant - 3 out of 5

Kristen, San Diego Wed, 7 November 2018

This is a cute space small and intimate dining area. The service was excellent (other than salad problem); the staff was very attentive. They served us a dessert on the house for some reason and that was very nice. I will definitely give it another try!

Liked: Love the space, it was smaller than I expected and I liked that.
Disliked: Food wasn't very flavorful; they served our dinner before we finished our salad.
