    We were seated in the open (but covered) section of the restaurant. Our waiter was very attentive and he took care of our table well. It took a while to get our entrees after they were ordered; but it was a busy nice for the restaurant and it was pretty full. The food was delicious and ranged from crab stuffed talipia, mahi-mahi with frangelico and bananas to a seafood salad. The only thing missing was the goat's cheese in the seafood salad.--otherwise the food was just about perfect. We passed on dessert as there was some waiting for us at home.

    We have always used Peohe's as our SPECIAL night out place; anniversaries, etc. so when I hear my brother and his wife was in town, it was a simple choice. on this night, the staff was terrific, as always, even got us in early. The food was good - but for this price level, not great - and there is where the evening went south: the prices seemed to have jumped from the high level to the VERY expensive level, since the last time we visited. We did have a great outside table with a beautiful view of San Diego, but the prices will make this a once a year kinda place... too bad.

    I have eaten here many times before. The service this visit was unusually poor. We arrived about 6 minutes before our 6:00 PM reservation time. At 6:10 PM we still had not been seated. I waited several minutes for the hostess to get off the phone so I could ask her what the problem was. Eventually another hostess checked us in again, and around 6:13 PM we finally got seated. There were many empty tables, and so I'm guessing they were short-staffed. The table we were seated at was right by the kitchen, far from the scenic window views. When a waiter came we asked if we could move to an empty table right by the window, and he let us do so. Service during the meal was spotty, and I eventually had to find another waiter to get a dessert menu.

    The server, Matt ignored us most of the time. Checked on the table behind us at least 3 times before he checked on us. Never received fresh bread even after we asked for it twice. We were never offered to order desserts, water was not refilled. Made the rest of the experience horrible. Now regretting tipping 15% !

    Thought we'd get special treatment for friend's birthday but only got, "we have a birthday?" from the hostess and a 20 minute wait even with a reservation. The restaurant wasn't even 1/4 full so why did we wait? We ordered our food & the waitress didn't write it down, then came back 20 minutes later & said they were out of the Lobster Ravioli for the birthday girl. She didn't offer anything comperable, just told her to order something else. She also asked my other friend, "you had the tilapia, right?" - she had ordered the flanksteak. Took forever to get our food, thank God for 3hr parking validation! We are locals & now see why only unsuspecting tourists come here anymore, shame...it used to be fabulous in the early days. Never again!

    We have gone here many times but this is probably the last time. We arrived early but didn't get seated until 15 minutes after our reservation time! This always seems to be the case. Once we were seated and ordered, it took forever for the good to come out. The waitress was doing what she could but said they were understaffed. It was my dad's birthday and we didn't get to celebrate because we were there for almost three hours!

    Must have been an off night because the last time I dined there with clients it was fabulous. My wife ordered sea bass which came to the table soggy and mushy. We sent that back and requested a filet mignon and they brought a sirloin. My sushi was very good but my wife had a below par experience which was unfortunate as we were celebrating our 37 year anniversary of our first date.

    The view is fantastic. The food however, was not very good. Out of all the items we ordered, I would have to say the albacore sushi roll was the best. Between the four of us, we had the flank, the swordfish and the seared ahi entrees. Our server was great in the beginning, but after we got our meal he never checked back in with us. By the time he did, we had finished our meals and were ready for our bill.

    The seed-coated salmon was good but the veggies under the fish were bad news. Kind-of a mush. I would have preferred lightly steamed and fresher. These looked and tasted like they were left-overs from three days ago. Looked terrible and tasted worst. Would not order THAT dish again. Had several bites from my husband's beef sandwich. NOW THAT WAS DELICIOUS!!!!!!! Dessert was a 10 star!!!!!! Coffee great!

    The server might be new. He did not bring us bread until our lunch was arrived and I asked that we never got the bread. I have been there many times and used the wi-fi before. I forgot the password. He said he would ask the manager, but never got back to me. We have to look for him for drink refills. Customers at two other tables were not happy with him either.

    Arrived at 6:30 PM Saturday evening for 6:30 reservation. We were told it would be 15 more minutes. Had to remind them at 7:00 we were still waiting. They completely dropped us. Had to send a steak back for being undercooked. Another entree was cold. Also had someone else's bar tab added to our bill. Our waiter promptly fixed the latter two issues, but still should not happen at this caliber of restaurant. Got the distinct impression this restaurant thinks it can survive on its wonderful bay views and not the service. First and last time there for us.

    The waiter was nice but overall the experience was not good. It was our 35th wedding anniversary and we were hoping for a better experience. First, we didn't receive our appetizer (salads came and we were told they forgot), my wife's seared ahi was stringy and not good, the wine was never brought to the table and no one came by so that we could ask until we were done with the meal. Our outside heater was never turned on because they tried and needed a lighter and they didn't come back until we were almost done with the evening. The waiter seemed to have too many tables to deal with. We never saw any management in the restaurant. We will not return.

    Everything was going well: service, atmosphere and especially the friends. The food was less than what we had expected for the cost. In particular the sea food was way overcooked (we had lobster, crab, and two other seafood dishes). The vegetables were overcooked, and some plates came out where the food was barely warm. The plates had to be returned, which really off-set the rest of the dinner. What made this surprising was that it was a slow night.

    Here's the deal, we know the area well and planned out a special evening. We took a short ferry ride from downtown SD to Coronado. Peohe's offers excellent views in a very relaxing, yet upscale atmosphere. Due to the big windows, all tables have views. Our window table was perfect, but note that some diners prefer outdoor seating. Our server, Darren was excellent. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of Far Niente, reasonably priced. While the menu offer some really wonderful seafood preparations, we chose to order PuPu's and Sushi Rolls. Every item we ordered was delicious. Darren paced things perfectly, no rush. The macadamia nut ice cream dessert was worth every calorie and then some. YUM. Our ferry ride back was lovely under the stars.

    Disappointing 50th anniversary dinner set up for my parents and family, including several kids. While the server was sure to get our lava cake preorder from us (20 min prep), we were over two hours to get our cold entrees. Nothing like a 13 year old asking if the shrimp is supposed to be served hot or cold. The server never acknowledged any issue even after we chased down the manager on several occasions. Been to lots of Charthouse restaurants, would stay away from this one. View was very nice.

    I chose this restaurant as the location for celebrating our wedding anniversary dinner. Food-wise the steak and lobster sushi and crab stuffed prawns were exquisite. Amazing overall experience from start to finish! They personalized the menu with our names on it (didn't ask), the food was outstanding (from appetizers to desserts), and to top it off there was a fireworks display on the water which occurred directly outside of the restaurant (post Padre's game). This place made me look like a star...couldn't ask for more!

    We picked this restaurant because we wanted a little nicer dinner on the water for our family of 4 while staying nearby for a tournament. The atmosphere is decent and kid friendly. The views are great. But that is where it ends. The food was terrible. Ahi appetizer was fishy and salty. My wife's Sea Bass was mushy and fishy. Had to send it back. My Filet was tasteless - not an ounce of seasoning. Even my younger son's chicken tenders were awful. They tasted like flour and he wouldn't even eat them and he eats anything fried. Had a glass of wine that sat empty for 20 minutes. Never got asked for another. Saw the waiter about every 15 minutes or so. Worst part is that the food is very expensive!! Terrible experience!!!

    Well the view of the harbor and SanDiego was breathtaking. It was a gorgeous night and the sun going now was very pretty. Well getting to the food and service. Anna the waitress was terrific. She was attentive knowledgeable and friendly. The food which we started with sushi was very good. The tuna with jalapeño was great. The have a surf and turf sushi wonderful. Calamari was fair, it was not hot and just ok. Lobster bisque was good and the thin sliced pepper ahi tuna was very good. Lobster ravioli was fair at best. Overall it was good as the view does it all.
