  • "The food was delicious! Our server was so helpful and personable."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Visited Sally's with my wife on my B-day. Started with Seafood Selection Small Tower, very suitable for 2, incl very "Large" Lobster and Crab legs and fresh oysters, with 4 different sauces. As a main cource, ordered "Sea Jewelry Paella". They did perfect job to my request to exclude calamari and octopus, and instead they increased shrimps and others. It was first time to enjoy such large lobster in paella. Since food ware so excellent, we emptied 2 bottle of Napa Cakebread!. As a last surprise, when we asked bills, they brought cute dessert we didn't order, with "Happy B-Day! " in chocolate cream!!. It was one of the best my B-Day dinner. I do recommend Sally's where perfect seafood and warm service guaranteed."

  • "We had dinner at Sally's on July 5th. We sat outside - it was a beautiful night, the restaurant is next to the marina, and it made for great people watching as the crowds walked along the walkway to Seaport Village. Our food was delicious and the waiter was knowledgeable about both the food and wine. And at the end of dinner, fireworks went up at the SD Pops concert. A great night!"

  • "We went to Sally's for dinner the 4th of July. Had amazing cocktails and meal. Ahi tuna and butterfish were delicious. Service is alway good. It's one of our go to spots when visiting San Diego. They also welcome your dog on the patio."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Our meal was excellent, as was the service. Imaginative dishes and a nice wine list. Seaport Village is a bit touristy, but don't let that keep you from trying Sally's."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The food had outstanding flavor. The service was very professional; however, up to three people would ask the same questions at times. The only real complain was the presence of bones and scales in my crispy skin Hawaiian snapper and cartilage in my wild mushrooms. It showed a definite lack of attention to detail by the chef and became a choke hazard."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Excellent seafood restaurant at San Diego Marina, adjacent to Marriott Marquis and Grand Hyatt. Food quality, preparation and presentation are excellent. Service is spotty with long forced waits for a group dinner for 9 people while restaurant was less than half full. Sit outside and enjoy the marina views and San Diego weather. Dinning room is noisy with its hard surfaces."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I was there with family members for dinner, it was my niece's birthday, we all enjoyed our dishes, some innovative things in the menu, a variety of options for all tastes. We ordered wine and beers, good alternatives for both. definitely recommended"

  • "I dined at Sally's a few years back...so I knew I had to visit while in San Diego. I was not disappointed. The service was top level - friendly, professional, knowledgable. And the tuna was fantastic! Make sure you save room for the gelato."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "This is a really great restaurant! The view is really great! The service was very friendly and the new sushi rolls were wonderful. It's a great spot to hang out and enjoy our beautiful San Diego weather all while enjoying grear food."

  • "We had a great lunch on the patio. We didn't expect great food at a hotel restaurant, but this was an exception - food was excellent (we both had a fish/steak special combo that had creative presentation & seasoning). Prices were not that bad given the location. One tip: in the confirmation email it said you had to specifically request the patio, so I called them to ask for that. They graciously said yes. That was fortunate because the patio tables sit out right along the boardwalk by the Bay, a very nice experience. You can probably add that request when you reserve online."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I came here for lunch with my brother. He got a burger and I ordered the quinoa burger. We both thought our food was great. We were seated right away, the service was friendly and timely, and we were happy."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We were staying at the Hyatt and for our first night we didn't won't to go far. The menu is quite limited for a Seafood restaurant, but the location, friendly staff and busy seafront made for an enjoyable evening. We would definitely go back and recommend Sally's for dinner if you want to be by the water as we did."

  • "Just amazing food!!! We go every two months and we started going when we had our rehearsal dinner here because we got married at the Hyatt. It's our favorite place and worth every cent!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had a last minute hankering to celebrate a colleague's engagement. The staff were more than accommodating, even on short notice, and went out of their way to provide us a great table, congrats throughout the night, and a complimentary custom dessert. Kudos. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Had a celebratory brunch in the outdoor dining area. Angel was our waiter and did a fine job. Food was great, I had the crab cake eggs benedict and a Bloody Mary. The bloody mary seemed to be made from shrimp cocktail juice and wasn't something I'd re-order. It was another perfect day on San Diego's waterfront and all 5 of us had a very enjoyable brunch. "

  • "We had excellent service at this establishment; our waiter was delightful. Food was disappointing, however. The hostess wasn't very friendly, either."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Food was great, we sat outside in the patio, the service was very poor, not only for our table but for our entire section. Last time, we sat inside and the service was outstanding. "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "We come at 7 pm and were seated at an inner-yard table with a good view of the bayfront promenade. Found a great wine list. The salads were small (especially the beet salad) so not noticeable. The crab cake and fish-n-chips were really good. But expensive. Had to wait for 15 mins for a glass of wine and to remind 2 times. Overall - very good."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "My mother and I had an overall good time at this restaurant. Being tourists we had to ask a lot of questions about the menu items and our server did a good job of answering them. The food was very good. It was quiet which we liked. We'd recommend this restaurant to family and friends who plan to visit San Diego."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Portions small and overpriced. Hungry when I left. And for a seafood restaurant, the seafood choices are really limited."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Outdoor seating with great view of the harbor. Service was excellent. Food was fresh and high quality. Taste was however a little bland for us."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We took out of town visitors to Sally's for lunch/brunch. Everything was delicious. Don't miss the Brie French Toast, it was special. Great Bloody Marys, too."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Best fish and chips in town because it is the only restaurant that uses sea bass instead of cod. other dishes are good as well. great for sushi lovers."
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Sally's had a n excellent staff and is a great location right off the water. The sushi rolls were outstanding! A few of us had the Lobster Pot Pie, which was something new for all of us. It was very good, with plenty of lobster. The only item that was average was the crab cakes. Way too much cilantro. Service was excellent. Great wine list, and a full bar."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "While staying at the Grand Hyatt, I chose to eat at Sally's twice (so that says something in and of itself). I enjoyed the ambience and service, as well as the views of the harbor. I had the sushi, which was of high quality, while my friends sampled a wide array of menu items. Everyone enjoyed their selections from surf-and-turf to more elaborate sushi rolls and delicious salads, in addition to wonderful complimentary mini-bread loaves. The wine selection was especially pleasing, as was the service. Our waiter on the 2nd night was one of the best waiters I've ever had (and I travel and dine extensively). Insightful knowledge of the menu, clearly enjoyed his work, keenly interested in our having the best possible dining experience."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We had a great dinner and a fantastic experience from our server. He made us feel like we have known him for years. The ambiance is great, romantic and overall a five star establishment."

  • "Sally's is over-priced and noisy. I wouldn't go back."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Have been going to Sally's for fun, for lunch/dinner, special occasions, for late night drinks for several years and it never disappoints. Staff at door and at your table are friendly, knowledgable and dedicated to making your dining experience a pleasant one. "

  • "Great location, with a patio perfect for outside dining next to the harbor. Very good sushi and service"

  • "It looks like amateur sushi chef is making sushi. Fish is not fresh, it stinks. Rice is not tasty. Needs training in Tokyo."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "I don't go to San Diego often but when I do, I always try to lunch at Sally's at least once. I brought a friend there for lunch two days ago: she was reluctant because she had a dinner date there later that day. We shared the Seafood Cob Salad - beautiful salad with tender succulent shrimp and scallops (one of the four tests of a chef is his/her salad) and we shared two interesting sushi rolls. We paired this with an auxerrois and then a dry Vouvray from Oregon. After this was over, my friend said, "I know I"m having that salad tonight again!""
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Sally's is our go to place when we visit San Diego and usually order the daily special as it has never missed. The view of the boats and harbor from the upper outside patio on a sunny afternoon with a glass of wine is to live for. The servers always make us feel special and are very attentive without being overly attentive. As I write this I'm wishing I was there."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We were looking for a place to get some fresh, quality seafood - Sally's was perfect! We tried a variety of sushi rolls, the lobster paella, and the fish and chips - everyone was beyond pleased! We also asked for a table with a view - sitting out on the patio was perfect!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We had a delightful lunch at Sally's on a perfect spring day. The restaurant is right on the coast with a great water view. The food was outstanding. Three of us had the seafood cobb salad, which was perfect: grilled shrimp and scallops on butter lettuce with lots of avocado. The other member of our party had the mushroom risotto with salmon and thought it was wonderful. He had hesitated to order the salmon because so many restaurants overcook it, but this was just right. We all enjoyed the breads and butters and a lovely bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Truly a treat! We'll definitely return."

  • "The food and ambience were great. The menu had something for everyone. Definitely will be back when in the area."

  • "I really wanted to enjoy this restaurant. It has a lovely setting, great menu (especially for gluten-free folks - all items identified) and is convenient for those staying at the Hyatt. Unfortunately - the service started at ok, and then quickly degraded to poor. Our server was just not at all what I would anticipate of a restaurant at this price point. I appreciated that the food was labeled GF. Unfortunately there was issues with the main courses and dessert. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you are doing a quick stop. I found the waiter to be condescending and inattentive. Im used to fine dining all over the country and beyond. I found this experience to be quite disappointing."
