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 The food was fresh and delicious. The wine was good with a generous pour. Service was outstanding as we were the only diners in the restaurant. Jan 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The staff was very nice, but did not check on us during our meal. My friend had to get up and get her own water refill becuase our waiter did not stop by. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and options though which was very much appreciated. Jan 12, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Menu not the same as on-line. Appetizer Avocado was over-salted. Steak required second firing as it was over-cooked. Jan 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fri 7:45pm dinner and no one else was in the restaurant dining. Kind of cool to have the place to ourselves but kind of strange. Decorations were nice; seems like it could have been a lot more fun if there was regular ambiance. Dec 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The crispy salmon is outstanding. Dec 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was good but tiny portions. I dined alone and ate an appetizer on my own (Karne Asada Fries were good) and the chicken (small thigh + about 10 baby asparagus, and a couple tablespoons of mashed potatoes). I left starving and ended up ordering a pizza on my way back to my room. In all fairness I'm an athlete and was hungry when I arrived...but then again...I was hungry when I left. Dec 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We have been to this restaurant before in the W Hotel, however, it was under a different name. Nov 22, 2014
