We really enjoyed our initial experience at The Vine Cottage and have returned since. It's wonderful East County gem!

A bit pricey. Would need a special deal to make it worthwhile but food was good and atmosphere was nice.

very cute restaurant and nice ambiance. Prices are ridiculously overpriced and even with the groupon we felt very ripped off (value to portion ratio). Portions are all a-la-carte and small...they were also out of cold tea (uh, how about brew more???) and we were still hungry when we left, even after paying more for a dry salad that we split. Need to have some bread or something to eat while you're waiting for a dinner with those portions!

What You'll Get

Sustainable farms often produce leaner, healthier meats without the hassle of curing pork chops in a sauna or tenderizing steaks on a stairmaster. Sample svelte proteins with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale contemporary fare and drinks at The Vine Cottage in La Mesa.

The Vine Cottage's passionate chef unveils a new, Mediterranean-tinged menu suffused with distinctly seasoned, natural, and sustainable meat and seafood often culled from local sources. Cheese boards perplex lactose-intolerant karate choppers and invite watering mouths with regional and imported artisanal cheeses ($16). Sustainable white shrimp scales linguine tightropes across a pool of lemon, garlic, tomatoes, and white wine ($17), and Carlsbad black mussels sift Yukon-gold fries from fjords of white whine, wit beer, or lamb sausage ($13). Artisanal pizzas swathe crusts in six renderings of mozzarella and vegetable blankets, and a Niman Ranch pork-rib chop draped in fig glaze and broccoli raab keeps local flavors close to home and away from the corrupting influences of Greenwich Mean Time ($20).

An abundance of wines swirling in stemmed glasses breathe into the exposed wooden rafters draped in flickering iron chandeliers. Fresh breezes dance across the wooden patio as stone walls balance rustic and elegant elements as well as a sequined hobo bindle.

About The Vine Cottage

Exposed wooden rafters and cobblestone walls create the rustic ambiance that The Vine Cottage’s name promises, but the menu adds dimension to this theme with a contemporary take on Italian and American staples. The chefs value sustainably produced meals, so they seek out seasonal, organic, and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. These ingredients lend vibrant flavors to the menu’s flatbread-style pizzas, hearty pasta dishes, and grilled steaks. Housemade duck leg confit and remoulade also help to create a dining experience that is homey yet refined, much like the artwork-laden refrigerator in Monet’s childhood home.
