This cool little joint is tucked away in a location that I fell you would never find unless you knew exactly what you were doing. We found this gem when visiting San Diego based on good customer reviews here on TripAdvisor. As soon as I...More

Work party. Starlight has a pretty big outdoor bar area which is perfect for a work party. Very good house Cab and drink menu. Appetizers were good. Some twists to the menu. Service OK and prices reasonable.

The food and drinks were good. The design of the interior is dark and 60's - 70's Modern. You must have an adventurist pallet to enjoy the menu. Nice huge bar to sit around for cocktails and socializing.

We needed a girl night with good drinks, and that's what Starlight offers. The Moscow Mules where great at the atmosphere was perfect to catch up with friends!

I've been going to Starlite intermittently for several years. It's a good local place, though it's close to the airport and Little Italy/Old Town/Downtown for tourists as well. The service is generally good, but as noted in some of the reviews it depends on the...More

Went there last night after going to a concert. We could find a seat on the patio. It was cold but they had heat lamps. Then moved inside after the patio bar closed 12:00. But inside was just as fun. Super cute place and must...More
