Whether it be devouring a South American-style churrasco plate accompanied by a well structured red, or tantalizing your palate with a madras curried tiger shrimp skewer alongside a refreshing austere white, it’s all here for you to explore and savour. With the elemental design of raw historical concrete floors, metal accents, knotted natural woods and tropical plant life, it pairs just right with soundtracks of smooth samba, traditional tango, eclectic electronic beats or some old-school jazz. It’s rewarding for me to express this to my guests and more importantly for you to embrace. And for those who have had the pleasure of traveling, may your time spent here transport to those far away places for a moment in time.


Thank you and salud!

Wine List




Corkage $20 for 750ml (1) btl per reservation



Tropical White Sangria 9/32

A taste of the tropics that transports to places unknown. Fresh mango, lychee, & melon are the starters that dish a dime of joy.

Mainerdo, Arneis, Langhe, Italy 12/45

Bright straw yellow with beautiful golden reflections. Aromas of peach, mango, melon, pineapple and lime, followed by gorgeous floral, chamomile and honey scent. Rich and round in the mouth, off dry, with persistent fruit power and a tart mineral layer. Full-bodied but not heavy.


Crnko, 3 blend, Slovenia LITER BTL 11/52

3 Blend of high-toned Laški Riesling; Sauvignon Blanc & Ravenec. Thirst quenching, light on its feet w/ gentle acidity & notes of juicy fruit gum makes this difficult to set down.


Askineli, Rkatsiteli, Askana, Guria, Rep. of Georgia 12/45

.This super unique varietal shows Stonefruit & Citrus, 24 months in wood barrel displays in finish. Bracing minerality & acidity.

Some of the most ancient winemaking in the world!


Valderba, Chardonnay, Carinena,

Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain $10/$37

Greenish yellow, clean and bright. Nose; Fine and of medium-high intensity, it shows aromas of white fruit, green apple, pear, and citrus fruits like the grapefruit. The palate is balanced, tasty, ripe, with lively acidity that enhances its freshness. Aromatic finish of good persistence with fruity(tropical), citrus (grapefruit) hints

Frontonio, El Casetero, Macabeo,

Campo de Borja, Aragon, Spain $10/$37

We have fallen deeply in love for the Macabeo grape, valuing its green citrus twang and remarkable structure. All stainless. A beauty for the sunny days of San Diego.


Endochora, Vidiano, Crete, Greece 12/45

This uncommonly aromatic grape has fast become a darling of hip sommeliers in Europe. It offers the same fragrant appeal as Viognier and Roussanne but with a nervous tension that one suspects the Rhône producers would kill for.




Corkage $20 for 750ml (1) btl per reservation


Exotic Red Sangria 9/32

Un traditional, dark & mysterious w/ unique flavor & depth.  A proprietary blend of blueberries, ginger & citrus. City of Angels tested and voted best on the WestSiiiide!

Coquelicot, Bordeaux blend, Santa Ynez, CA 2009 14/53

Delectable CA for your pleasure. Intense violet hue & red skinned berries & cooking spices on the nose. Round tannins & lively acidity. A treat.

Le Tobele, Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore , Veneto, Ital;y $15/$57


Bing cherry, red plum & cofffee with dark clove, dark chocolate covered strawberries with mineral finish. Silky Ripasso tannins and fairly complex.

Mainerdo, Nebbiolo, Alba Italy 14/53

Treat yourself to this iconic expression from the soils of Piedmonte. Beautiful amber red with deep forest mushroom romance. This wine is the quintessential expression of fresh Nebbiolo.  Aromas and flavors of violet and mushrooms, cherry and spices. The wine is full, harmonious and refined.


Le Devoy Martine, Rouge blend, Lirac, Rhone, France 12/45

Carignan, Mouvedre & Syrah. Hibiscus & spice. A hefty dose of Carignan give it a spunky sense. Stainless & Neutral tank. Delicious.


Terra D' Alter. Alicante Bouschet,

Alentejo, Portugal 12/45

Intense notes of black fruits and spices with a floral nuance. Plums and notes of plum, excellent acidity and structure. Silky and rich tannins. Very long and rich finish with notes of chocolate and vanilla

Los Morros, Carmenere, Central Valley, Chile 10/37

100% Carmenere. The iconic varietal of Chile that introduces with a firm handshake and wink of an eye. Brilliant intense purple. Leather, Cedar and Strawberries. Silky round tannins with a punch of juice. Sure to be a crowd pleaser for the bold palates.


Siete Fincas, Malbec, Valle de Uco,

Tupungato, Mendoza, Argentina 12/45

92 points from Decanter. Vinified in Stainless, 6 months in French oak. Deep aromatic notes of plum, violets & hint of cedar. Plush, ripe & persistent finish. Drink while available.


Cascina Tiole, Barolo 2015



Wet Stone, located at the base of a turn of the century bldg. in the landmark barrio of Bankers hill opened its doors in 2008. Chef and proprietor, Christian Gomez, a local San Diegan of Latino and Asian descent, honed his skills in the many facets of food while marinating in the city of Angels eclectic borough of Venice beach, with stints in NYC and abroad.

The restaurant is an expression of his vision through the AMBIENCE of an elementally designed interior sprinkled with wood, metal, concrete, tropical plant life and a-moment-in-time images throughout. The FOOD treats you into a cornucopia of bold flavors and well executed dishes that are not only mouthwatering but are compiled and designed to compliment the experience.  The SERVICE is least invasive yet professional, which gets tied all together with a soundtrack of soft samba, cool jazz with a touch of electro-tango or ambient rythms.

The dance of service, ambience, music and food is well choreographed and brings a symphony of joy for anybody looking for a unique dining experience.
