If nothing else the view of San Diego from the deck is spectacular!!!!! The food, if you are a seafood fan, is wonderful. The drinks are good and bartenders are experienced.

Back to the food, wasn’t what I had expected when I heard “fusion Mexican” but the soup, the guacamole and the crispy calamari were excellent, beyond those items it was a difficult menu for us, but I would still go back to enjoy the ambiance!!!!

After our appetizer we waited for over an hour for our main courses. Our server was very nice but overall we had a lousy experience and the food was just ok.

Terrific location, hip decor. Liked the attempt to take creative liberties with Mexican fare, but they didn’t quite seem to work. Over the top spicy heat in everything, even dishes with lobster, blasting over delicate flavors. The ceviche was overly sweet and soupy, again canceling out fresh and high quality seafood taste. With a few tweaks, the food could be as much of a draw as the harbor view.

Waitress was not very attentive. We felt very much like a number and not a value customer/guest. We had to ask other staff for Service. I understand that there are busy times and okay with that. But in our case waitress hardly ever made eye contact and never came around how we were doing and if we wanted anymore drinks. In speaking to other tables around us they felt the same about the service that day. I'm sure waitress is good but she was off her game that day.

The view is stunning without a doubt. My Chile Relleno plate, however, left much to be desired. The concept of the blend of vegetables was nice however it was extremely dry and in need of ‘something.’ The person I was there with had the Pippian Chicken, which I tasted and that was very delicious. This was my first time at the restaurant. I’ll probably give it one more try.

Wonderful location to bring newcomers from airport and welcome them to our city. Sitting on the bay at rail side table, we had a clear view of downtown, Coronado bridge and seals diving in bay. Ceviche was phenomenal, and macho salad a hit! Service was prompt and attentive. Definitely worth a visit!

Coconut Margarita was a lovely compliment to the ceviche. Dinner couldn’t be topped with the lobster and Blackened Salmon. Wait! Dessert anyone! Loved the flourless choc with pb icecream! Yum! Won’t wait for a special occasion to come back!!

I would recommend for lunch not for dinner. Husband’s Luis salad was more like a wedge salad. I’m sorry I didn’t send back to kitchen to request it be chopped up.

The food is good but wait time for the food is too long , need to hire more chef and I had my daughter birthday celebration and the staff did not sing happy birthday which I thought was weird , even the most expensive restaurant sings happy birthday for example Island Prime . It would have been nice to sing happy birthday and the waiter Thomas was very nice

Two anniversaries...hardly a mention of that although I mentioned it b4 we came.
NINE of our entries were right! My lobster was not completely cooked and the steak had a chili sauce on it that burned my palette! WHY do u do that? Is your food so tasteless that you don’t want your hungry, eager clients to actually enjoy flavors? VERY poor!
My husband’s Luis salad was minus a Louie type dressing and he said it was “average”!
My daughter had a poblano entree that she said was dry. The waitress stopped by and when my daughter told her it was dry, the waitress said it needed “walnut sauce” and would bring her some! And she did and it helped.
The guacamole was great...but for 3 people a wee bit skimpy. The beer my husband said he liked. The margaritas had WAY too much ice...very little liquid to b honest! Not the best. The desserts were very good.
But...to b honest...we were very disappointed.

We had a wonderful evening. Our food was delicious and the views are unparalleled. Service was very slow and I wasn’t sure if it was because we were a group of 12. We were there for 3 hours and probably only wanted to be there for 2. I had to get the waiters attention to order as well as to get another round of drinks. We will return for sure.

The service was terrible. We had reservations and had to wait more than 15 minutes for our table. They did seat us at a really nice table. But then it took forever before someone delivered bread and water. The waiter did apologize that it took so long. I ordered the seafood cobb and it had 4 shrimp and some salty fish. It was the worst seafood cobb I have ever had in San Diego. We won't return.
