Excellent all aroundWe had an absolutely wonderful dining experience at Island Prime.
The food, service, and ambience were excellent!
I will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone without hesitation6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time!I was very happy with my experienced at Island Prime with hubby. Our waiter is very friendly and he even give us a banana pudding for free in celebration for Father's Day. All I can say is the food is to die for. :) We'll be back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!The scenic view is very relaxing. I'd recommend the scallops...large, sweet and succulent served atop a trio of risotto cakes. My friend got the rib-eye which was cooked to perfection and enough to share. Service was timely and friendly. Will definitely make this a regular spot.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingWe've dined at Island prime twice now and can't wait to go back. The view of the city is like no other, the food is incredible, and the service is top of the line. If you're looking for a place to celebrate, a romantic dinner, or just a treat in life this is the place to go.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Food / Spectacular ViewI met my BFF at Island Prime for dinner before a concert at Humphrey's this week and found my new favorite SD restaurant. The bar is spacious, the view of the San Diego skyline and Coronado Island is hard to beat. The hostess, bar staff and servers were extremely friendly and accommodating. I appreciated that the servers were attentive without being intrusive. The food was very good and the menu broad enough for everyone happy . This is the perfect restaurant for out-of-town guests, business dinners or a romantic night out. I am a huge fan of 333 Pacific in North County and foe of the over-hyped and mediocre Ventana also part of Cohn Restaurants. Can't wait to get back.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the staff were attentive,All of the staff were attentive, polite, and accommodating. We ordered the romaine salad to share and they split it for us, along with the filet and crab legs. The crab legs were more food than could be eaten but each bite more delicious than the next. This restaurant will not disappoint!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery person was helpful andEvery person was helpful and thoughtful! Best dinning experience of my life!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI brought my wife here on our trip to San Diego for a nice romantic dinner. The restaurant appearance looked great and the atmosphere was great with a amazing view of the harbor. The portions of the food were huge a lot larger then most restaurants in the area. The taste and quality of the food were out of this world. Defiantly will revisit on my next trip to San Diego.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerFood was delicious as always. View can't be beat! Attentive service.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal, great service,Great meal, great service, all around great expereince.
Thank You!!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and viewWe visited Island Prime on a recommendation from a friend, and I am so glad we did! Our waiter was courteous and attentive, but not always hovering over the table which was nice. There was also another gentleman in the restaurant who I believed to be the restaurant manager....he was SO friendly and came by to check on us a few times. Also, there is not a bad view in theis restuarant. It is right on the water and you can see the San Diego skyline perfectly. I had the crusted mahi mahi with pineapple salsa, which was tasty and perfectly light. My companion had the bone in steak, which is HUGE and perfectly cooked. We also split the loaded lobster baked potato for two....this thing was enough to feed 6! Overall fantastic experience!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationWe've gone to Island Prime the last four years for my husband's birthday. It's always lovely. This year we witnessed an engagement at an adjacent table.

Vip service and excellent food5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation dinnerOur daughter graduated from college and we wanted to be near the water for her special day. Island Prime's location cannot be beat. The view of San Diego was spectacular. JAKE our server and Brian his helper made dinner a pleasant experience. The food was phenomenonal...starting with tasty drinks and appetizers and generous main dish portions. We did not have room, but still had desserts! We appreciate any restaurant where the manager is visible and visiting tables...we told him what we write here...we would highly recommend Island Prime.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this Place!!Whenever we are in San Diego we treat ourselves to this awesome place The food and drinks are fantastic.

Excellent Anniversary dinner!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat side dishesIsland Prime is supposedly known for its steaks, but our filet was just so-so; we've had better elsewhere. The side dishes that we ordered to go with our steak were the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus with balsamic sauce and the wild mushrooms. They were outstanding!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticI looked online for a nice steak house to take my boyfriend to for his birthday - could not have chosen a better place!

It was simple elegance. One thing we liked a lot was that we didn't feel pressured by the servers and other staff. Everyone was down-to-earth and unpretentious, yet extremely professional at the same time. The food we delicious and cooked to perfection. Nothing but good to say about every aspect of this restaurant.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best food find!!Island Prime is hands down one of the best places I have ever eating.

It's going to be the first spot on or next visit and maybe even our first and last. Hey, it's so good we might make it our only spot.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat dining experienceThe title pretty much says it all.

What a wonderful way to spend Mother's Day!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual...great food, greatAs usual...great food, great service, great atmosphere!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressive view - but the food!This was an impressive place. Dinner reservations for three fairly early and mid-week (5:45 PM) resulted in being seated at the "best table in the house" according to the hostess. She wasn't wrong I don't think. We were seeated out over the water with two in a corner of glass facing both San Diego and Coronodo Island. It was an amazing view....so they probably could have gotten away with a little slacking on the food. They did not. The albacore stack, nutencrusted bried, albacore and scallops at dinner were all awesome. Might be one of my favorite meal....well certainly in a very long time. Great place, really great place!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIndulgingThis is one of my spots I go to when I need to just relax enjoy great food and wine down.

Much louder than necessary and we asked to be moved. Our waiter totally understood and moved us to a different part of the restaurant. I think people were upset about this noisy table but it was handled very well.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time bringingThis was our first time bringing the kids with us Tina fine dining establishment and we couldn't have mad a better choice. Our server went out of his way to cater to the kids as much as he did the adults. I've been in the restaurant business for a long time and am a little over critical sometimes. This is, by far, the best service I've ever received and I have eaten at dozens of other fine dining restaurants in San Diego. Great job Island Prime - we'll definitely be back.
Oh yeah, the food was great too. Had the seared ahi and highly recommend it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat wine list with someGreat wine list with some good values. The view is exceptional. Excellent lobster bisque and a wonderful Caesar salad. We had beef and fish entrees and they were all good. We weren't as impressed with the side dishes. They were ok but too expensive. They are huge (more than four of us needed) and would be a huge waste for one or two diners. For $45+ for an entree I would like to see at least a few simple grilled vegetables and/or a small portion of potatoes on my plate. I might pay extra for a special side but there's no chance I would pay $12-16 for a potato and a similar amount for some corn or spinach to dress my almost-naked plate of beef.
The room is so noisy that we had to lean across the table to carry on a conversation.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection of wines andGreat selection of wines and outstanding views. Went for my boyfriends birthday and would definitely recommend for special occasions.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the view is spectacular our waitstaff could have been a little more attentive we had to wait five minutes after our meal was served to receive knives and then we were basically ignored until we were finished eating. I would still recommend this for dinner.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience, serviceGreat experience, service was perfect, food was amazing! Love Chef Deborah Scott's menus and food!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff was great. However,Wait staff was great. However, I did find that food came out slow.

I ordered the ribeye and my wife ordered the mahi mahi both great choices.
Always enjoy the bread they offer hear as you wait for your food. Prices are comparable to what you'd pay for any "finer dining" restaurant. Upside to Island Prime is the view. I come here about twice a year with my wife and always enjoy my experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only problem is that theMy only problem is that the food is way too expensive and that side dishes cost extra - otherwise, it's just a piece of meat on the plate and nothing else. Definitely only special occasion, not for frequent stop ins.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Island PrimeWe have been to Island Prime a number of times and have never been disappointed.
