asked for a window table the day before our reservation, and we got an amazing window table. We were all so excited to see that we were overlooking the water, San Diego skyline, Cororando bridge and all of north island. There was also a large sailboat regarda going right in front of us the whole time. This is a little pricey but well worth it with the outstanding view we had. I will go back and this is will be my number 1 place I will bring out-of-town guests.

Love the drinks.

Service was very good, the Mexican Paella for 2 was delicious and plentiful, view was wonderful. I'd pass on the house margarita next time, it was bland.

I went here to celebrate my graduation! We came around 5:30pm and had great views of the downtown skyline. All the staff was really friendly and they even acknowledged my accomplishment. This is a great spot to celebrate special occasions. Even my parents were impressed and saying it was fancy!

There are not many places that serve Paella. They have a good one for two people. The drinks were awesome and a lot of choices. Will definitely return.

Had to change tables to get a good one. Service was okay. I freed calamari to start and it was over cooked and not edible. Had to send it back. Dinners were excellent.

Uninteresting menu, surprisingly limited, not well executed. Margaritas lacked tequila and were overly sweet. Cerviche trio varied from poor to average, the ahi tostada was really poke, and not very good. Trout was okay, nothing special. Presentations lacked care and flair. The prices all said fine dining, but the food said nothing special. Will not repeat.

Went for lunch with a friend. It was surprisingly quiet and not crowded as I have often seen at Happy Hour timeframe on three prior visits. First time dining here. Happy to say it was a very, very nice experience. Our hostess seated us right away and our server, Morgan, followed shortly thereafter ready to take drink orders. Warning: you may have a hard time deciding what to order. Lots of interesting choices on the menu and I am a fussy eater, so was pleasantly surprised with having a hard time deciding. No worries though, had Morgan help with that and also already decided I would be back to try the many other great options. The restaurant we were told is very happy to split all your orders and they did so by splitting them onto separate dishes, rather than bringing bowls or plates to have us do it at our table…another plus! All our dishes were very delicious…soup, salad, entree all outstanding. So, with the great service, food and positively gorgeous location it was an amazing experience which will bring us back again soon. Definitely lunch over dinner just because it is a lot less hectic atmosphere. Thanks to all for a most enjoyable time.

Beautiful location with beautiful views of San Diego. They initially tried to seat us in an inside table even though I had reservations and had asked for a water side table which they did accommodate. After asking.. Food was just marginal nothing special and very expensive. Service was exceptional, views were beautiful

Food is very unique. Everything we ordered was good.

Service did not match price point. I feel when you have a great environment (on the water), price is on par ($$$) but service is not. Almost like we just have to accept it because, hey, at least you are on the water and the food is good.

We’re in San Diego on vacation and had our wedding anniversary dinner here. We were greeted and welcomed as soon as we entered the restaurant. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated right away at the table by the water. What a view! Our server, Chris, was very polite and attentive. I ordered the ancho chili roasted salmon and my husband had the rainbow trout a la plancha. They were delish! We had the coconut panna cotta for dessert, a surprise anniversary treat. Thank you so much for the treat and for the wonderful dining experience. 👍🏽

Coasterra has always been our favorite restaurant! We moved to Colorado , but every time we visit we have dinner there. It has always been pricey and even more so now! Our meals were very good NX the drinks were fantastic. You can’t beat the view of the bay either. My only complaint is the increase in the prices. Overall this is superb dining experience!

Food was great but service was better. They held our table for an extra 30 minutes because our plane arrived late. Then they called me when I left my credit card at the table.
