Savor San Diego In Our Downtown Restaurant

The word is out. And we couldn’t be happier – San Diego is missile-hot when it comes to the city’s culinary scene. And right in the middle of it all, you’ll find Saltbox Restaurant. So if you were wondering what all the SD buzz is about, just know you’ve landed just steps from one of its epicenters. The Saltbox approach is deceptively simple: flip the script on comfort classics like Mac and Cheese (braised pork belly, fresh herbs, three cheeses) so that even the humble hamburger becomes a foodie stalwart (cue the brioche bun, brisket chuck burger and aioli). Just prepare your palate for an absolute joyride, because it’s all paired with a creative cocktail program where the kitchen and the bar conspire to conjure notoriously delicious libations. Our gastro-lounge concept also means its San Diego social in here, so you’ll always have company to share our vibrantly delicious scene.

To make a reservation please call the restaurant at (619) 515-3003.
