Went for Happy Hour. Don’t think i’d return for dinner, maybe lunch or happy hour. Biggest draw is the location, food and the rest is fine, but can get better for better prices elsewhere in San Diego. Sun sets behind the restaurant.

A beautiful dinner date with panoramic waterfront views of San Diego downtown. The service was top notch and the food was of the highest quality. It is an upscale diner location and totally worth the experience,

The menu is carb heavy and not as high in quality or value as when the restaurant first opened. But the setting is about as good as waterfront dining gets in San Diego. Worth dining for the architecture and views.

I love this place. You truly cannot beat the views. The food was excellent! The calamari is always a hit, plus I had the corn poblano chowder, as well as the trout. Incredible. Unfortunately I brought a client, and the service was so poor. We were sat and waited for our server. She passed us a few time (without us knowing she was our server) and then when I asked if we could switch seats for a better view, she said yes and then proceeded to tell us how she would not be our server. She does inform us that she can take our drink order. And so we wait and wait. And wait some more until I stop someone who looks like a manager to explain what’s happened. Low and behold, she is our server and all of a sudden becomes attentive. Did I mention I brought a client? Slightly embarrassing but the first time this has happened here. I will still be back!

This is a nice place with a nice viewof the city lights at night. Very pretty and the service and restaurant was good. The only detractor from our experience was our hostess. We had a 6 PM reservation and we got there 5 min early and she made us wait. She seemed annoyed and rude for some reason. We waited outside for 10 min and went back inside to ask about our 6 PM reservation. Reluctantly she went to check and got us our table. I thanked her and she did not even acknowledge it. We weren't upset or rude. We just took the wait in stride but it seemed strange that our table would not be ready 5 min before the reservation time.

We were disappointed with our most recent trip to Coasterra. They appeared very understaffed. Long waits for a table even though many were open. Our waiter was lovely but very busy, covering many tables. Long wait times for everything. Also very chilly in the restaurant. The wine we were served was very flat. The bottle had been opened for too long. The food was great though.

We went for a fake girls night out but really my friend was getting proposed to. The Manager Billie and the staff were AMAZING! They helped us pull off an unforgettable night. I appreciate them so much. This place is beautiful and the esthetics were perfect for our occasion. My favorite plates are the ahi tuna tostada, and the seared scallops. I can’t wait to go back!

I went in for my birthday and everything was just not good. The guacamole was too sour. Way to much like added. The Queso Fundido was sweet for some reason. I thought it was going to be spicy with the chorizo. And the Pork belly Carnitas were so over powered by the bowl of beans they lay it in. All I could taste was beans. No flavor to the rice. No flavor of the “salsa”. The meat itself was tender. But just poorly plated. I ended up sending it back. Other than that the only nice thing was the view. I really wanted to ask for my money back but I took the loss. Not the amazing birthday meal I was expecting.

Had a group dinner on the patio - amazing views - and fantastic food. The service was great, and you cannot beat the ambiance and view of Downtown San Diego. I will come here again.

Had a wonderful lunch on the outdoor deck area. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The restaurant really ramped up around 3:00 on a Sunday so I would recommend making reservations before arriving. The Manager on duty (Billy) came by to check on our experience and was very inviting. I would definitely come back next time when visiting the San Diego Waterfront area.

We didn't get the seat we requested for when we made the reservation
So we left right away. The place has great views. We didn't have chance to try food so I have no idea about food.

Fairly new to San Diego and this place did not disappoint! We have gone to C Level many times but I think Coasterra might have become the new go to place. We celebrated our 16th anniversary here and everything from service to food to views were fantastic! We will for sure be back!

Very nice! Food was satisfactory but nothing special, cocktails were fantastic however The one thing is that it became cold and rainy half way through and they wouldn’t put down one shade for us to block us from the elements. They did let us move inside which was nice.

The ceviche was very good. I had trout, which was well prepared, and my husband had flank steak, which was quite good. My only criticism is that the margarita (Deb's Coconut) was too sweet, maybe too much mix and not enough alcohol.

Great view and food. Kinda pricey but I guess you pay more for the ambiance.
Staff was not as friendly as I would expect. Our waitress didn’t explain the menu at all and didn’t give suggestions.
I may go back for drinks and appetizers during the day but probably not again with a larger group.
