Nice view, excellent drinks (although a bit on the pricey side) and fresh, clean food. Service was professional and on point. Wear your sunscreen if you’re sitting next to the rail, though. Although they have umbrellas, that sun is bright!

Spectacular location. Really good food. Pretty darn good service. Pretty spendy... which is understandable given the facility and location and how much it must have cost them to build Coasterra. We will go back next time we’re in San Diego.

The ambience is great and so are the drinks however it took 45 for us to get our food. The ceviche trio was not so great, and the carne asada steak was nothing special. The salmon was good however a little undercooked.

Food was alright, definitely not authentic. It was more of an American take on Mexican cuisine. The ceviche was very tomatoey...
Drinks were solid. View was great!

We took my husbands daughter to Coasterra for a birthday lunch, She had never been there so was really looking forward to it. Service was pretty good, we had our chips and salsa with in the first 5 minutes. The servers kept changing so we were not really sure who was ours! Food was mediocre and expensive. My husband ordered enchiladas and they were so covered in sauce he said it looked more like an ice cream sundae. I ordered the chicken torta, the roll was very dry, the thin piece of chicken was so spicy you couldn't even taste the chicken! His daughter ordered the California Quesadilla, and that was the best of the 3 lunches. You can't beat the atmosphere and the gorgeous views from this place, so I would imagine that I will go back at some point .

Food and service were good however I made our reservations six days in advance for a birthday celebration with five of us and they gave us the very last table in the patio where half the table had no view at all. We were seated next to a 50th birthday party where they had many balloons that kept hitting us in the head and coming onto our table. The other table thought this was funny however it got a little annoying after the first half hour. We made the best of a bad situation and our waiter was very good along with a delicious dinner.

Food and atmosphere is great, but the service is horrible! We would be sitting there for 15 to 20 minutes at a time with no service. It was just 4 adults and 2 small children. We were there about 2 hours. Was pretty hard to justify the tip amount since we had a larger bill, but we still did the right thing...

We went to Coastera for the view but was disappointed with the food. The carnitas my boyfriend ordered had so much fat on them and were bite size pieces. I also mentioned it was his birthday when making the reservation on the app and was hoping he had at least a candle to blow out. We noticed the table next to us was also celebrating a birthday and the server brought over a small treat. The margaritas were really good tho!

Our experience was absolutely amazing here! Our server Giovonni was amazing! All his recommendations on the food for the table side guacamole, the white corn poblano soup. To our entrees of scallops and the chicken. Our dessert was out of this world! We honestly could not say enough good things about this place! The views itself was spectacular. The ambiance was up beat trendy, family friendly and fun.

Enjoyed the sunny harbor views in downtown San Diego with a very good brunch! Split the coconut ceviche which was delicious and the brunch burger. Plenty for two people. Yummy chips and salsa with our drinks.

The setting is great, the food very good. It is so unfortunate that my whole experience was ruined by being short-poured on my cocktail. My margarita was undrinkable. Tasted like a kids drink. So I asked for a shot of tequila to fix it. That didn’t show until after dinner came and only after asking for it again. So I paid $20 for a cocktail that I didn’t get until halfway thru my meal. Restaurant should either investigate running of the bar or know it’s a bad way to try and profit. Just too bad.

The view is fantastic. I’ve had better Mexican food in San Diego, but it was fine. It seemed to be trying a bit to hard. But for good service, great views, and fine food head to Coasterra.

I personally thought the food was extremely overpriced for what you receive. That being said, the view is unbelievable and I would recommend the guacamole. It's also close to the airport, which was convenient since we were eating there before dropping my parents off for their flight.

I've eaten here before for lunch, and I'd recommend lunch over dinner.

Interesting place. Great view. We enjoyed watching a Disney cruise ship head out to sea. We were both surprised by the menu...we thought it was a Mexican food. We both ordered fish...not realizing it would be raw...our bad...we did not read menu close enough. I had the salmon and it was way too salty for my liking. We were really disappointed in the food.

Food always great at Coasterra. Downside: it’s ALWAYS too cold in the restaurant. Not sure why they keep it so cold when it’s right next to the bay??? Service on this visit was not up to par.
