    I knew going in this was predominantly seafood and thought there would be a few choices without. Every item that was not seafood, came with seafood or contained mushrooms, which I am allergic to. I asked if I could order just a plain chicken breast and they were unable to accommodate me.

    Pretty expensive dining for something you can get during happy hour. We ordered ceviche, and clam chowder and two drinks. Came out to almost $60!? The service was great, but the menu lacked some oysters. Also didn't have much and was expensive. Great view outside but very noisy and lots of crowds walking by.

    Four of us ate here for my birthday. Crab bruschetta was cold. Two small pieces of fish on the fish and chips and cold French fries. The runner brought out cups of soup even though bowls had been ordered. He took them back and it took an inordinate amount of time to return with the bowls. Interior decor is in major need of a remodel. Also the air vent over our table was crusted with filth and had not been cleaned in ages. It was a grimy mess. We would not return, just walking by the other restaurants at the Seaport, one can tell this is a lesser than. Having never been to the Seaport, we clearly should have read reviews ahead of time.

    We were in San Diego for a "work-ation" and took the family after all day meetings to the Edgewater Grill. It was middle of the week, earlier than most dinners, but very good. The service person was friendly, knew about items on the menu and made suggestions for dishes based on our questions.

    I needed a place open for breakfast, on the waterfront with views. After some online research, I found Edgewater Grill. After some difficulty finding it (you could do better there...) and figuring out the parking situation (I needed to ask numerous strangers where you were and where to park...which is probably not ideal for a restaurant), I arrived, 20 minutes late. BUT--- from that point on....our meal was SUPERB! Wonderful service, with lots of smiles, incredible outdoor seating-- the it felt like we could touch the water, gorgeous views of Coronado, blooming window boxes separating us from the water and sidewalk, fantastic tasty food ( large portions, too). Both of us were raving, and making plans to bring our reunion group here.

Of course, the views of the bay were outstanding. Perfect way to get together with friends we see only once a year.

    Outdoor dining along the boardwalk and water was exciting until it was time to eat. The sea bass which came highly recommended was less than desirable and the ribeye was worse here than at the Cheesecake Factory at double the price. All told the waterside setting is great but the food is sub par. Go for a drink and enjoy the view then head elsewhere for dinner.

    We came on my recommendation, but for lunch, not dinner. It's not as nice as it used to be, which is a shame. We were a group of nine, boisterous Italians. We love to eat, laugh and drink. Our waitress tried separating us into two tables, but we'd have none of it and fit everyone comfortably in the half booth/half table given to us at the very west side of the restaurant, much to her chagrin. I give her credit for getting over it quickly and continuing on with good service. I had the watermelon salad, which was so-so. It wasn't what I REALLY wanted, but it sounded refreshing. However, I don't like goat cheese and I should have substituted. My husband had the Croque Madame, which he loved. The rest of the table was split 50/50. Drinks - Yum!

    If it wasn't for the view, this would have been a bad experience. My wife and I had the Sea Bass and the Seafood pappardelle and neither was worth recommending to anyone. The pasta was bland and the sea bass was dry with not much flavor. The waiter (who was attentive) referenced the sea bass as not being fishy with a nice flavor....the problem was it had no flavor and was dry. Really disapppointed in the meal, luckily the views helped the evening.

    Is highly recommended. Though making a reservation is not. Seems -- We do realize that requesting and getting are two different things. We, made reservations and showed up 10 minutes prior to reservation. We waited an addional 30 minutes for outdoor seating. Extremely disappointed that not only was my reservation or request not taken seriously, mere fact is that most guests are walk ins.

    I'm a local who really enjoys Seaport Village. I love Edgewater Grill & I'll typically take visitors there... But I also go there outside of that. The huge patio has amazing views, but the place is set up so you can also see the views from all the tables inside! It was raining on Sunday, but we still got to see the bay and all the people walking down the boardwalk. The chef's special is never to be missed! They really take the time to come up with new things for the menu and I'm always excited to see what's new. Kristi was our server and she was great! She was super patient with us, on top of everything, and made sure to recognize my cousin's birthdays :) I highly recommend it for both visitors AND locals!!

    6 of us went in on 2-22 for lunch. We were greeted happily and sat quickly looking at the gorgeous view! We had been there earlier in the week and fell in love with the people, food , cocktails, ambiance. The restaurant has been there for a long time. I love the "old school" vibe of this restaurant. What is so great is that the food is really really good! AND the cocktails are fabulous! They infuse their own tequilas , vodkas etc with great and delicious combos. We had the Mission Beach which has mango/Serrano chili infused tequila IT IS DELICIOUS! The service is outstanding. Happy, courteous, on top of everything you need servers. The food is really really good! We had delicious grilled fish tacos, civeche, and more! Hurry in don't wait!

    Went for the Valentine's Day couple's special. It was a 5-course meal with bottomless champagne. We had a meat and cheese plate, a salad with pear and Brie, diver's scallops in a fantastic white sauce with crumbled bacon, then pork belly and an aged filet mignon. They both melted in your mouth, and the filet rivaled that of many of the steakhouses. For dessert we had a piece of devil's chocolate cake and raspberry cheesecake. We sat in their outdoor patio by a heat torch. We were entirely comfortable, the tables are only 1-deep, so we had pretty decent privacy, and best of all, a close, open view of the harbor and Coronado. I cannot speak highly enough of the venue and the high quality and fantastic flavor profiles of each course.

    My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate Valentines Day and it was fantastic! The food was prepared exactly the way we wanted it, they served a variety of drinks (especially beers) that are local and imported, and the service was awesome. We didn't feel rushed. They wanted us to enjoy our time at table with each other. Super friendly and humble to serve you like a restaurant should be. The view is also beautiful and sitting outside is very peaceful, they even had heaters for sitting outside. One of my favorite meals! (I had the filet mignon - medium rare. She had the pork chop with onions and banana on top. Both dishes were great, though somewhat pricey, but well worth it. Spent around $100)

    The fish and food in general was very good. presentation was good as well. we booked this last minute for New Year's Eve for dinner, but upon arrival we saw that there was no need for a reservation because the place was not busy at all. only a few diners. it is somewhat out-of-the way, tucked away in the Seaport Village. The view is wonderful, the food is good but the ambiance/décor was dated. Also, we had even better seafood at another place for about $30 less, so I feel the food was overpriced.
