About Cohn Restaurant Group
“Our Aim is not simply to please our guests, but to make them so happy that the last thing they say to themselves as they are
Over the past 31 years, David and Lesley Cohn have brought San Diego dining to a new level. Beginning with one small diner in 1981, Cohn Restaurant Group now owns and operates 16 restaurants within the San Diego area and Maui.
Each restaurant has gained respect through numerous awards and accolades, including multiple San Diego Gold Medallion Awards, Restaurateur of the Year, Gaslamp Quarter Association Lamplighter Awards, and other honors from local publications and philanthropic organizations.
The impressive portfolio of modern venues is certain to please even the most discriminating diner and event planner. Each award winning restaurant is unique in its cuisine, décor, and ambiance, but they share a distinguished attention to detail that ensures every event is a resounding success.
From meetings and retreats to conferences and fundraisers, the venues of Cohn Restaurant Group will add a touch of understated sophistication to corporate events of any size.
While each restaurant varies wildly in terms of food and design, they all share an “obsession with hospitality.” This Cohn philosophy focuses heavily on superior service and aesthetic comfort while duly reflecting the family’s steadfast contributions to the local culinary scene and the communities in which they operate.
The award winning cuisine, excellent service, and a unique atmosphere at each of the restaurants keeps locals and visitors coming back! Cohn Restaurant Group also takes great pride in offering our guests several concepts to choose from.
The latest locations are 100 Wines Hillcrest and Vintana. 100 Wines, offers a casual bistro style atmosphere, with a menu and wine selection designed to eat + drink + share. Vintana is our most recent collaboration with Chef/Partner Deborah Scott and is located on the penthouse level of the Lexus Centre in Escondido. Vintana offers a modern take on California Cuisine with picturesque views of the town and countryside.
Also, be on the lookout for both of Cohn Restaurant Group’s food trucks Chop Sooey and Ms. Patty Melt serving delicious cuisine created by long time partner Chef Deborah Scott. The food trucks bring creations and inspiration from several restaurants to many neighborhoods and are available for private parties, festivals and charity events.
