Pleased the wife!For a comfortable setting and enjoyable brunch with my wife, a mother of two and grandmother of four, the Beach House experience was perfect. Nice weather, tasty food and fine service. The patio offered a spectacular view of the ocean and Cardiff reef action. A winner for Mother's Day !5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Good Mother's Day SpecialThe restaurant was crowded and busy and we waited a while for our table on this Mother's Day, but we were not disappointed. Sitting outside and hearing the crash of the waves, the complimentary champagne and the flowers gave us much pleasure. The kid's menu was perfect, as was everything else. The kitchen seems slow, but it did not matter because our family was together in this beautiful setting enjoying the sunshine and the conversation. Always good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAll staff were friendly andAll staff were friendly and pleasant.

A friend and I made the reservation for 8PM and we got there incredibly early and they accommodated us and seated us early. I was very pleased. The server was not very friendly, but everyone else was very kind. I really loved that you could see the beautiful ocean and scenery from anywhere in the restaurant. The Ambiance was really wonderful and the food was delicious! I would definitely return there and recommend this place to anyone.
This is a great place for romantic date, lunch or dinner place, and great for groups. I bet this place is wonderful during the summertime when the weather is warmer!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding beachfront location...ooutstanding beachfront location...only valet parking but free beach parking just down road. Food was fantastic.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSenior Prom Dining ExperienceOur Son and 6 of his friends dined at The Beach House as part of their Senior Prom Experience. The staff was excellent, going above and beyond to give them a great experience. The food and ambiance were great. Thank you for helping make this group's Senior Prom a memorable one.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBeware of reservationsWe had a reservation at 7:00 pm. Table was not ready until 7:20 pm.
Otherwise, everything great.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service in a location that's hard to match.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe used a Groupon which wasWe used a Groupon which was for a Pre Fixed Menu and tha was OK, except that the dessert selection was very limited, and nothing that either my husband or I wanted, so we did not get the full benefit of the Groupon.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMService was attentive, filetsService was attentive, filets were awesome. Asperagus was perfect. The only downer was the two buns plain/cheap that were served with fake butter.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good at best.I ordered the pork chop which was over cooked and dry. My wife ordered the salmon and it came with mash potatoes instead of the featured pasta. The food was not bad but expected better effort from a restraunt like that.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a favorite restaurantThis is a favorite restaurant of ours but our dining experience was not totally what we were used to. The service and everything was great but they they had a very limited menu and were "out" of several entrees and all draft beer.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been there many timesWe have been there many times over the last 16 years, usually celebrating a special occasion. Keep up the good work.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch Better than ExpectedWe were pleasantly surprised that the service and food were excellent after having read some of the negative reviews, especally in light of the fact that we were using a Groupon offer. We had the lobster choice from the special menu and found it to be a good size portion and very well prepared. The server was very sweet and accomodating and seating was excellent. It may have helped that the res was for 5:30 on a Tuesday, so not very busy. The appetizers and dessert were also very good. Luckily (being somewhat thrifty) we parked along the beach to the South of the restaurant, which enabled us to walk off some of the great meal.Their ''happy hour'' menu looks to be pretty reasonable, given the location and food quality.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Sunday Brunch View!We love that place and we always go there for special occations. This time, it was my father in law's birthday and as usual we loved it! Even though, it was cold and rainy, we sat outside on the patio and the heaters were enough to keep us warm and if they turned off, an attendant kept coming back to light them back up. Our waiter was also very nice. We just love the Sunday Brunch at this place! ;)4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't sit in the inside patio areaI have been here many times and love it. However, this last time we sat in the inside patio area (due to family member's handicap) and I don't recommend it. The seats were uncomfortable and view slightly obstructed. Food and service was excellent as always.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!Ask for a table outside...nothing better than a dinner with friends and family on the beach.
We went for Easter lunch and it was fantastic.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Beach House is convenientlyThe Beach House is conveniently located between North County and the City of San Diego. The outside dining areas are wonderful, right on the ocean with a view of the beach and surfers. Sunsets are spectacular with no onbstructions.
The menu is varied and the food excellent. Brunch on Sundays is especially wonderful with Mimosas and other great bar drinks and delicious food. The staff is pleasant and efficient and very much focused on giving their guests a memorable dining experience.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and have found it especially rewarding for out of town guests - especially those who cannot enjoy being on the ocean in their own home towns.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThere were 7 of us, we enjoyedThere were 7 of us, we enjoyed our lunch. However, the restaurant was out of one of their signature menu items (Ahi), and out of all the white wine we tried to order by the bottle. We finally settled for glasses of the house wine. The experience was saved by the incredible coastal weather we had that day. It will probably be my last visit to the Beach House for awhile ... too many good restaurants along the beach where we have not had this issue.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery happy with the earlyVery happy with the early bird dinner choices. I was able to get lobster for $19.95. Eat on the patio and watch the sunset. Lovely.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMonly disappointment was theonly disappointment was the egg omelet...tough..

however, will not order the eggs3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMValet parking $4 plus tip,Valet parking $4 plus tip, almost necessary. Enclosed patio a little noisy3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI was at your establishmentI was at your establishment when I was doing my fellowship at Scripps, 11 years ago. I was originally from Canada at the time.
I have since moved to the United States, and just had to come back to your restaurant. I live 2 1/2 hours away (Hi-Desert, Apple Valley), and was attending a convention at the Omni Hotel in San Diego on 3/23/13.
I just love the Beach House, and will gladly make the 2 1/2 drive.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful evening.Had a wonderful evening. Beach House is very special to us. starting in 2002. Had my first date with my husband there for lunch, proposed to on my birthday 11/17/2011. Look forward to our next visit to the Beach House.
Penny and Jim White3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEat here!This place was great. I made reservation at 8:30 and was seated immediately. We were served bread pretty quickly which was lovely in addition to the bread being fabulous. We had a groupon that gave us a limited menu but it included enough to keep both parties happy. I had some pasta with chicken- but I am on a vegetarian diet and they were able to supplement my chicken with well seasoned broccoli. My companion had the steak which came with greens and mashed potatoes which she also loved. We both had the tiramisu and that was great as well. We both wished that it wasn't so foggy so that we could enjoy the view of the beach from our window! Overall, I had a great experience!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving requested a windowHaving requested a window table due to a special occasion, we did receive one,but it was way at the end and one of us was looking at a utility bar during much of lunch. I thought they might have done better.
While the dish I had was tasty, it might have benefitted from a couple of extra ingredients, artichokes or mushrooms, something to jazz up the chicken and tomatoes with the pasta. My guest was very happy with her steak and shrimp kabob.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for my significantWe went here for my significant other's birthday. There was a bit of difficulty finding parking unless you're willing to go valet. We had reservations for prix fixe dinner (complimentary of GroupOn). The scenery was dim lit, which drew our attention outside to the beautiful water front. They had a decent wine list and the prix fixe menu had notable entrees. The food was good and the service was great. I'd recommend the Beach House to my friends for special occasions or casual dining.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
