The experience was everything I would expect from a Cohn restaurant. The food selection was outstanding. Different and exciting. A feast for the eyes as well as the body. Service was exceptional as always. Looking forward to taking more friends for the experience. Thank you

Scallops were cold and had a strong odor. Were not good at all. The Carne Asade was good. It had a very thorough rub on the meat with a tremendous amount of seasoning flavor was above average. Fundito was very good but very spicy. We love spice but between the Chorizo and jalapeño peppers it was spicer than the average person would probably like. We had been here in the past and loved it but were so disappointed this time. We hate to spend a lot of money for something that is average to below average food experience. The ambiance was amazing and makes up for a lot. For the money and experience we expect to be wowed or at least above average in quality and preparation.

Coasterra was a very nice place! Some guest were rude I noticed though. Me and my friends are in our 20s and most of the crowd was older. I don’t know if it’s always like this or just the day we came?

My wife and i went with our sin and his girlfriend on a Saturday night. The view of downtown San Diego is fantastic. The food was great. My wife and I had the 2-person fried bass which was very interesting, served with tortillas to make great fish tacos. For dessert, the sorbet trio was the favorite of the table.

Simply outstanding. Beautiful views from inside and out, great food, and creative drinks. Arrive early before your reservation to get a premium table. And plan on valet parking. It's $9 but really no alternative.

Unfortunately, while I love to bring friends & family here for the food & the fabulous view, I fear the service has really slipped! Our waitress would disappear for LONG periods. She was not very attentive at all. Not leaving a nice warm spot in my heart.

The food here is just so marginal for the $$$. All they have going for them is the fabulous view.
If you are a foodie, don’t go here.

Coasterra is in an amazing location with an incredible view! Many times places with incredible views lack in service and food quality. The service was not terrible by any means but our server did disappear a few times and we had to get other workers attention. The food; The concept is fresh and very San Diego style but it could be better. We ordered the table side guac which was about $16. The guac really was enough for a person and a half and lacked a ton of flavor. The ceviche we ordered was fresh and the presentation was beautiful but the fish did not have enough time to marinate in the coconut milk, nor was there enough lime or salt. The veggie tamale had way too much masa and not enough filling. This is far too common when restaurants are serving Mexican cuisine, the tamales never have enough filling. This was our first time visiting and do plan on returning and trying different items on the menu, maybe the tacos!

Tableside guacamole was amazing! We sat on the patio overlooking the water and the San Diego skyline. It was a chilly night, but they have overhead heaters.

The seared scallops were perfectly cooked. The Oaxaca cheese fundito was also amazing. And, they cooked the carne asada to a perfect medium rare. Definitely going back next time we visit the area.

Really beautiful restaurant with decent food, but the service was absolutely horrible. Made a reservation in advance and was still there for over 2 hours. Had to ask other people where our server kept going and no one was nice about it. Pretty place for pictures but not worth it for any other reason!

The view is always amazing, Deb's coconut margarita is everything you hope margaritas will be, the service I was surprised wasn't as awesome as I anticipated since it was slow and we could have been wowed, but overall, I'd still recommend it to friends and family.

Amazing location and views. Beautiful restaurant and bar. From there things were fair. Service was as poor as I can remember a place having. What made it worse, they weren’t even busy.
The menu is lacking choices. The food we did order was fresh and tasty.
Maybe our taste in restaurants is simply not a match with Coasterra?

The view from this restaurant would easily keep this place in business. Even saying this, the food is always great, and the service is very attentive. A great spot for business lunch, or date night dinners. You cannot go wrong.
