Food ordered came out wrong. Steak was over cooked and burnt. Food and drinks kept going to the wrong table.

Service was ok, food came to the table prior to drinks, and they were ordered at the same time. Views are awesome.

I love coming here when visiting SD. They always seat on time, servers are really friendly and attentive. Drinks are amazing!!!! And the chili burger on the brunch menu is phenomenal. The view is beautiful. Especially during the transition of day time to sunset. Parking is free and never hard to find. I recommend this place constantly to all my friends visiting SD.

Nice patio and views, as long as you don't have a noisily selfish, self-absorbed group hooting and hollering at the next table, which we did and were allowed to move. Salad, the house white, and the salmon entrée and service were great.

The carne asada flank steak entrée was - inexcusable, especially at those prices. Chew forever and you will still have an un-swallowable ball of meat in your mouth. Cutting it into tiny pieces made no difference. I gave up and left it. The manager and cook should be made to chew and swallow what they serve.

My recommendation to a friend would be, go and enjoy the view, but don't assume all entrees are great. Choose from the menu very carefully, and be willing to send it back.

Always great food and a great ambience. The entrees are little bit small but the appetizers are ample. The servers I've had there have all been superb. The bar and the drinks are equally outstanding

It was great. Service was amazing. The roasted chicken is my favorite dish. The scallops was well done. Usually that kind of dish is very hard to cook.

Always fabulous! The food was just sumptuous! The ambience especially at sunset is magnificent. The food was really special, first, we all shared the classic ceviche, just so fresh and well prepared. I had the scallops with pork belly, so delicious, daughter and my husband had the fish dish and my daughter's fiance had the Carnitas and it was really tasty. we are fussy foodie people and loved every bite. The crafted cocktails were perfect. Almost as great as the food was the views when dining alfresco looking out over the harbor and skyline of downtown San Diego. Don't miss Coasterra, what a treat!!!

My fiance and I did a delayed Valentine's Day celebration on 2/20. It was much less crowded (and no fixed menu) and we got a table facing the San Diego skyline. Our waitress was Chelsea and she was amazing. Very knowledgeable of the menu and drinks and her service was impeccable (checked on us multiple times throughout dinner to make sure we were doing good). We will be requesting her as our waitress next time we are back. As for the food, we tried the sea scallops aguachile as our appetizer. My fiance ordered the salmon and I ordered the NY steak with shrimp. All three dishes were nicely cooked and super flavorful. We couldn't have asked for a better dinner night. Thank you Chelsea for your amazing service!

Coasterra is so great! The view makes me fall in love with the San Diego skyline for the first time ever. The food is delicious and our servers, Chelsea & Kassie, made us feel so welcome, in a weird time to dine out under covid conditions. Even on the patio, we felt like we had our own cozy space to dine and were warm enough on a February night with the adjustable heaters they provide.
I recommend going at Sunset to watch the setting sun glow on the skyline, and linger long enough to see the skyline light up in bright colors.
This is the first time I have spent significant money on dining out in a long time, and it was well worth every penny.

Best view and outdoor dining space in the Downtown/Harbor Island area.
This is a great restaurant for Happy Hour, casual dinner or a special celebration. The view is gorgeous right on San Diego Bay. There are lots of heat lamps for the cooler evenings and it stays very cool during the summer. We found the Happy Hour to be well priced with lots of great food.
