Always a great venue, eating outdoors with a breeze during the Pandemic and having the view of the bay and downtown is sensational.

This place never ceases to amaze me! The view, food quality and service always amazing! Even under these circumstances and only outdoor dining allowed again, this restaurant never skipped a beat. 5 stars on the tacos and Margarita!🤗

We had dinner at Coasterra on a Wednesday evening for my birthday. Given the restrictions on outdoor dining, there are limited place to have a nice meal by the water. Coasterra took every precaution, with physically distant tables, employees wearing masks, customers wearing masks while not at their tables, and hand sanitizer available at the entrance. The food was amazing! I had the scallops with pork belly, my date had a steak. Coasterra makes this delicious coconut cream margarita that is just divine! For my birthday, our server surprised me with a flan which I couldn’t eat because I can’t have dairy, but it was super thoughtful and my date enjoyed it! :) Beautiful views, great food, not much more you can ask for!

Gorgeous venue, friendly and attentive staff! But food was a bit disappointing for me and my friends, especially or the price point (we all had different dishes btw) Quite a shame because it’s a breathtaking place to dine. I really hate when a restaurant has it all except good food, super let down.

Every single person from the hostess to the busser was on top of it. Professional, kind, smiling and fun. They made our anniversary perfect and even gave us a yummy dessert. In addition, this place has one of the best views in San Diego. Continues to be one of our favorites!

Coasterra is a lovely place to have lunch or dinner. The wait staff is always very friendly and professional. My only complaint would be that the prices are very high. My husband and I have a Passport Card that gets us a buy one get one free advantage and this is the only reason we can eat at Coasterra. Otherwise, the prices would keep us away despite the view or the food.

By far one of the nicest restaurants I’ve ever been to in San Diego!!! The views & vibes were unbeatable!! Went to celebrate our anniversary and from the host to the waitress to the guy who took us food all wished us a happy anniversary & even gave us the most incredible flan after dinner on them for us! The carne asada was so juicy and flavorable & the margarita was delicious! But the view at night was just mesmerizing! 5/5 for everything

Beautiful restaurant with great view of downtown San Diego, Coronado, and San Diego Harbor. The menu was full of items that would please any palette. My two quests were quite impressed with the food, the view, and the great service we received. If want a great meal with a great view, you should consider Coasterra.

Came with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. The view from the restaurant is amazing. The food is very poor . Me and my husband got severe stomach pains after the meal there. Unfortunately it ruined our special day.

Celebrated my Mother's birthday with the family. Great for special occasions and for people who enjoy seafood/Mexican cuisine. The ocean view of San Diego is phenomenal as well. Definitely place your reservation before hand, as the restaurant does get packed quickly. Also, excellent service within the restaurant.

I would have given food 5 stars, but while my companion said 5 for the trout, my “cauli-bowl” was a 3-4. The flavors were good (not great), but the size of the cauliflower pieces were way too big to try to cut in the deep bowl. Very awkward. Maybe a dish like a pasta dish would be better?

My husband and I ventured out for a date night for the first time since restaurants have been back open during the pandemic. I was a bit nervous about dining in a restaurant, but I am so happy we went. We were seated indoors, but half of the tables had been removed completely, and the remaining tables were more than 6 feet apart. Every other booth was closed. All staff were wearing masks. The food and drinks were outstanding as always. The spicy margarita and rainbow trout a la plancha are my staples, and they were as great as always, but this time we ordered a new to us dish: the ahi tostada. It was great, and a really good portion. I easily could have ordered it as an entree. My husband got the carne asada with a lobster tail and he said it was excellent. We will definitely be maintaining Coasterra as a regular date night spot (well, at least maybe after the pandemic calms down bit).

Met 2 friends for dinner, we started with drinks and the Ahi Tuna Tostada. While it isn't the best item to share, the flavor made up for the messiness. I ordered the Shrimp & Avocado salad, and my plate was empty soon after. Very nice flavors throughout. One friend had the Tender Belly Pork Carnitas and the other had the Rainbow Trout a la Plancha. They each enjoyed their choices as well. I would be remiss if not mentioning our server, Lairin. She was EXCELLENT. Attentive, without being intrusive or rushing us. This was our first group outing since the restaurant opened its outdoor dining, and we were eager to catch up (distanced) with each other. We were at our table for more than 2 hours. Completely immersed in conversation, and at no point did we feel pressure to give up the table. The restaurant seemed full, but everything was spread out, so we didn't feel unsafe or at-risk from other diners.
Net - highly recommend. We've met here before, the views are unparalleled and add in the food and great service - a win win choice.

We were sat outside with a lovely view. All the food and drinks were delicious. The dessert took far too long to be delivered so we tried to cancel because we needed to get to the airport but then they came as we cancelled them so the manager waived the cost of them (luckily because we weren’t able to finish or enjoy them). Overall, I love this place and always take friends from out of town here.
