Very enjoyable experience.
Everything was great, from valet parking,
the hostess, my reservation was available immediately.
The waiter was very attentive, and the food was delicious.
I definitely will come back and recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

Less than subpar! Beautiful restaurant and was so looking forward to a special birthday evening with my family, but it was so disappointing! Service was awful. Every waiter, runner and hostess could not have been less flat and disinterested. We could not hear each other talk because the table of 12 behind us was yelling so they could hear each other because the music was so loud. $16 for tableside guacamole made with one avocado!!! The kid who made it looked embarrassed and bored. You would have thought our waiter had 35 tables since he rarely checked on us. Our food took over an hour and a half and was lukewarm, salty and uninspired. The best dish were my grandson’s chicken fingers. Our bill was $331.00: Four adults, four cocktails, no appetizers, four entrees, one kids meal. Nobody had a steak or a lobster.
My bad, I was told the food wasn’t great, next time I’ll listen. 🙁

Outstanding location, although only one choice for a vegetarian entree it was delicious! Friendly service, a bit of a wait even with a reservation, San Diego at dusk is an absolutely beautiful city!

Sharing Coasterra with friends from Whittier. The view was blocked by the pier with the curtains. Good food, very noisy for anyone with hearing aids.

My food was delivered incorrectly. I had specifically asked not to include certain ingredients due to allergies. However when my food was brought in it had the specific ingredients I had asked to be removed still on the food. I was unable to eat my dinner. Unfortunately I had taken a group of clients to this restaurant and didnt want to cause a scene by complaining to the waitress. Very disappointed!

Friendly staff, atmosphere is great, food fabulous ( a little expensive for tacos and enchiladas), drinks were great! Only complaint was bartender took my credit card and I was told he would transfer to my table. My card was not returned, my bar tab was still open 6 hours later. Good thing I live in San Diego! The gentleman next to us at the bar had returned also, looking for his lost card. Put a damper on a great birthday dinner. Overall, 5 stars, just follow through on the bar-restaurant transfer. The bartender asked where we were going also. Thank you

I wanted to like this spot!! We came early, sat at the bar, had amazing drinks and experience with all the bartenders! We even had the ceviche trio and it was so yummy!! The view at this restaurant is one of the best you can get, but the entrees are not good! We had tamales and the yellowtail. Both were sub par at best! Tamales were dry and honestly gross! (Manager did take this off our tab which we appreciated) the yellowtail tasted old and the flavors combined with it were not complementary! I’d give 5stars to the bar, drinks and app we had, and one star to the entree food! So bummed bc it’s a great spot in San Diego!

Great food and view but very loud and service was frantic. Had to wait 30 extra min after our reservation to get the outdoor table requested in the reservation. To be fair I was offered an inside table right on time but chose the wait. Took a long time to get drinks and main course arrived at the table 5 min before appetiser. Did not see our server again for 40 min after food delivered so no chance for second round of drinks. Food was served at perfect temp and delicious. View could not be beat.

Good variety of margaritas. Service was spotty. Great views. Ribs as starter were excellent but messy. $38 yellowtail tuna was not good - overcooked and sauce overpowering. Carnitas a better choice for entree.

Delicious food and drinks. I was visiting San Diego from NJ. I’m gluten free and had my choice of every single item on the menu!!!!! Can’t wait to visit again and will definitely come again.

Enjoyed a relaxing and casual birthday get together. My guest arrived prior to me, so they weren’t sure where she was seated. Luckily it wasn’t too crowded and I was able to locate her easily. Having been my first time there, I was interested in sampling. I loved the dinner entree selection in presentation and the complimentary Birthday dessert definitely was a wonderful touch. Menu could use a little bit more but maybe I had a bit higher expectation based on what I have heard. Overall a nice venue.

We both got sick. We had the Corn poblano soup. And the cannoli. Only thing we shared.

Our waiter was inattentive and it just took so long.

Would not return and will not recommend.

They practically force you to valet park ($8) your car. Very small area for self-parking. This had a significant impact on our overall experience. As a result of this alone, we wii not be back.

Our party of three enjoyed the beautiful deck and were not rushed. My salad was vastly overpriced for what it was , a few shrimp in some lettuce with a few bits of avocado and grapefruit for $22.00. The server split it in half by accident and took the 1/2 away. She also forgot one diners avocado toast. Overpriced and surviving on the ambiance. We keep coming back hoping it will get better. One diner had chicken enchiladas and tortilla soup that looked good.
