Kelvin, an upscale downtown San Diego restaurant, is located in the city's first design focused, and recently restyled hotel, W San Diego. Situated between the bustling and vibrant Gaslamp Quarter and trendy Little Italy neighborhoods, this downtown San Diego restaurant features contemporary world cuisine with a hint of Latin flair. The very definition of temperature, Kelvin is turning up the heat, setting a new standard in Southern California. Universally accepted as a unit of measurement for temperature, the name Kelvin perfectly sets the mood, while the kitchen serves up a dynamic menu with touches of South American soul. The Latin influenced menu features small plates to share and savor, in addition to stunning signature entrees, while enjoying creativity and temperature range. The menu ignites new experiences for the palate from Roasted Poblano Corn Soup, to Tequila Candied Halibut, to Chilled Tomato Gazpacho Shots and Mojito Spiked Shrimp. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Kelvin is the ideal downtown San Diego restaurant to enjoy an amazing dining experience. In addition, to cool off, Kelvin's signature cocktails use fresh artisanal ingredients to create refreshing libations, such as Sangrias, Caipirinha's and Pisco Sours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect timing of food and drinks. Accommodating staff, great service! Jul 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by We often go to the newer places downtown SD but Kelvin is one of the "older" places we find ourselves returning to. More than almost every other dtown restaurant, except for the Grant Grill, Kelvin is a place that pays attention to properly cooked proteins. See you again soon Kelvin! Jul 17, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by We love Kelvin. It has ambiance, style and delicious food. It is off the beaten path (not in Gaslamp) but that is one of the reasons we like it so much. Jun 13, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by I had the shrimp for lunch. One of them tasted like it wasn't fully cooked. The proportions were very small so I had to go elsewhere to get a foot long sub an hour later. Kelvin should server bread to make up for their tiny proportions. The sauce tasted pretty good though. Apr 16, 2015
