Prado at Balboa Park

Corvette Diner

“The staff here were AMAZING!!! The server knew all of the “safe” items for my daughter without having to run check with a manager. When the kitchen put an unsafe ingredient on her plate, the manager caught it and had them remake her whole meal so it’d be safe. Hands-down BEST allergy awareness we’ve ever had at a restaurant!!!”
