We enjoyed going back to Bali Hai but I had noted that it was for a special occasion and there was no acknowledgement of that and they seems otherwise occupied. The food , fresh fish , was great and so was the view and the service

Food and ambience was good but bad service ruined the evening. We did not see our server for over 40 min. He never checked on us to see if the food was ok or if we needed anything. We had wanted to order dessert but since he never came back I had to go to the hostess to ask for our check. During that time there were waiters and waitresses present for all the other tables in our section. I don't know if it was poor assignment or what but when the waiter finally came with our check there was no apology or acknowledgement of the situation. He just dropped the check off at the table and walked away. Service is everything when it comes to a dining experience. The service here fell very short.

Food needs a little more seasoning
Drinks Mai Tai too strong...

Food was cool at best, must have been a new bartender, Mai Tai was horrible and we have had them many times before. More than likely we will not return

I came here to try their Sunday brunch buffet. There is a huge selection of different types of food. The quality of the food was fantastic! Really great service all around. I would definitely come back.

What a Polynesian treat- like stepping back in time to enjoy delicious food and an amazing view. The Mai Tai is no joke but delicious and the Wok Fried Bass was so succulent accompanied by tender crisp veg in a dreamy sauce. Make the trip and enjoy a piece of history along with the most amazing view of San Diego!
