Beer, Wine & Sangria Specials

available to-go with purchase of food item 



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!

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.

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.
