Kind of pricey, but ok if you want a special treat. The service is wonderful and if you go to a wine pairing dinner, you can have 4-7 courses (wine included) for under $100 per person.
I really like this quaint, uptown place, it is a bit pricey but worth it. I had the monkfish and it was to DIE for! Really good service, perfect for a date.
Ida cuts my husband's hair and she does SUCH a good job! I love her! She somehow got him to love her too because he absolutely will not go to anyone else for a hair cut (he drives all the way from PB every couple of weeks to see her in Poway!) He has such unruly hair (especially when it gets long), and she cuts it perfect every time. I'm really impressed with the salon too, not at all pretentious, reasonable prices and great stylists. Very clean too!
This is truly one of the best places I have ever received a massage. Every time I go I get a different therapist, and each one has been great. There is something trancelike about the room that makes it really easy to completely relax. I??m sure it probably has something to do with the lighting, music and aroma therapy. The therapists here are truly amazing, very professional and really good at what they do.
I've always had a pleasant experience here. I usually get take out, but have dined in before. The food is very authentic and consistently good. There is a large selection of vegetarian dishes on the menu to choose from. They also have the standard Pad Thai noodles, drunken noodles and the curries, all with your choice of meat or seafood. The food is not too spicy either, (medium) here is still edible for people who can handle somewhat spicy food.
Dario has a unique selection of rare watches and other jewelry. You can trust him, he has a wealth of knowledge and can repair and/or redesign any watch. His inventory constantly changes, but he usually always has something interesting to see. If you need anything done to your watch or clock, Dario is your guy.
I really like the gnocchi as well the rest of the great selection of Italian food they offer. They do take reservations still, which is a blessing because they can get really crowded since it is such a small place. The ambiance is great and they have cute Italian waitors! =)
Mama Cellas is such a great little place to go for lunch. Reasonable prices and really good food. They have the standard Italian fare, pizza, pasta, soup, salad, sandwiches..It is a really small place that can get very crowded at lunch time. Look for their daily lunch specials. Yum!
I have made Diamonds my official jeweler. They take such good care of me. I work with Chuck; he??s such a nice guy and never pressures me to buy anything, none of the sales people there ever have. The store personally select each and every piece they sell, and just about everything in there is absolutely gorgeous. They have extremely high standards. I like their exchange policy. They truly want you to be 100% satisfied and happy with your purchase. I bought my wedding bands here at a fraction of the cost of what I would have paid at any other store. The exterior of the store is non-descript nestled in a Carmel Mountain strip mall between Sports Authority and Circuit City. From the outside, you may think it is just another jewelry store, but they are far from it, they are extremely professional, helpful and willing to make anything you want in house.
I love this down to earth beachy salon. I recommend Crystal, she is an awesome stylist with a perky personality. She did my up-do (on location) for my wedding, she also did make-up for one of my bridesmaids. I was very happy with her, she did a great job. Don't be fooled by the exterior (or the name) of this salon...they know what they are doing and their prices are totally reasonable.
