When we sat down at our table we let our waitress know that it was extremely cold and asked if they could turn the fans off because everyone sitting around us looked freezing too bundling up in jackets, and the waitress agreed it was too cold for fans. The manager came over to us and told us it was “too hot” (70 degrees with wind too) and that she couldn’t do anything about the fans. Fine, whatever we just sat there being cold. Right after we ordered our food our waitress informed us she was leaving and we had a new server. He said hi to us once. We got our food and my chicken was undercooked, pink around the edges. Not once did our waiter come back to check on us until after my boyfriend had already finished his meal (45 min later) and I had barely touched mine because I couldn’t tell anyone it was undercooked since he never came to check. I ended up not eating my meal at all, so luckily they took it off the bill, but didn’t offer up any solutions so I ended up having to go to another restaurant to grab something quickly for myself to eat. Overall, the service and food quality were poor and I am sad because I had high expectations for this place.

The view is amazing! The service first rate. The food is very good but overpriced, however, it is worth it for special times because of the view. I found the background music in the restaurant to be too loud and repetitive which impaired our conversation at times.

We went there twice this trip and we’re not disappointed. Drinks and food were excellent, as were the servers. Amazing views of the bay from every table. Great time.

It’s so hard to get a weekend reservation if you don’t reserve early, but it’s really for the view not the food. The food was ok, the service was pretty good but the view was great. Not sure if we’d go again.

We have been to this place tons of time and always have enjoyed the time spent at this restaurant. But this time, it was a total bummer. We were celebrating a birthday of our special guest, The person was with us only for one night and of all the places in San Diego, we selected Coasterra for our special occasion. after telling that to our server that this person is celebrating a birthday , she did not even wished the person which was very insulting. Even mentioned this to the host but no greetings from her too, again insulted. Usually one don’t have to ask for such things like a little treat but even after asking for it, they never provided the one. Selected a wrong place for our special occasion. No one ever greeted us well nor the birthday person. Don’t know what is the point of even mentioning this on a first place in Open Table while making a reservation . Not a good place to celebrate your special occasions as people there don’t care about their guests.

This is a fabulous restaurant. The location is wonderful with spectacular views and an open airy atmosphere. The acústics however are not good - for “energetic” read “noisy”. Once all the tables were filled it was hard to hear people at our table but people 2 or 3 tables away could be heard loud and clear. It felt like everyone was shouting!! Not the place for a quiet dinner!

Hostess at the desk was rude and not very attentive. Made us wait 15 mins after making a reservation when so many tables were available for seating. Waitress was nice and attentive. Food was horrible. 0/10. All the fish entrees tasted extremely fishy. Your better off eating from a food cart in the slums.

Greeters at front desk not welcoming, they could try and smile. Our table request was honored. Very few non-alcoholic cocktails available, no dark beers available. Excellent attentive service, but should study up on the oysters.

Nice views of the downtown skyline and waterway. Loved the open outdoor seating. Food was nothing to rave about but also nothing to complain about either.

AMAZING view of downtown SD and incredible service! Food was great as well. Highly recommend. Especially if you miss sunset but still want a great view, it’s beautiful seeing downtown across the water at night.

My boyfriend and I had lunch here to celebrate his 30th birthday and I made reservations for outside seating hoping it’s right by the water, and it was! Yay! The staff were all so welcoming and accommodating! They all checked on us and asked what we were celebrating and just being aware of that. It definitely made us feel special. The food was delicious! Our favorites were the calamari and the poblano chili burger! 😍

It was a great experience overall and they even brought out a flan for his birthday! Great service, food and ambiance! We’ll be back!
