We had a great first time dining at the Harbor House. From the hostess to our server, the service was excellent. The food came out quickly and they were very attentive. We had a great table with a beautiful sunset view.
Minus one small star for the prices. However, considering the area and views from the restaurant, it was sort of expected. The kids salmon was $17...more than I’ve ever paid for a kids meal...but it was fresh, delicious and the kid was happy, so what are you gonna do?
We will definitely be back again for brunch or dinner.
Our waitress was absolutely terrible. The only thing worse was the food. They should have bee $10 a plate not $40 for the quality they were. I dont think there are any spices in that kitchen. My food came out steaming hot, my partners was ice cold.
Seated immediately. Exceptionally friendly waitress. Limited wine selection. Very well prepared Mahi Mahi. My dinner companion didn’t like the amount of red chili flakes in the scampi, but overall a very nice meal and experience. I’d go here again on a future visit. Noise level was low, so perfect for conversation. First floor was closed, so only experienced the upper floor.
We had a lovely view of the harbor and a lovely meal, however, it took over 45 minutes to get our entree AFTER we had finished our appetizer. The prime rib was mostly fat. Everything else was quite good, especially the lobster bisque.
We always enjoy. From the service to the food.
They had a great Valentine’s Day special. 4 course meal with lots of great selections at a good price. Hostess, waiter, and runners were very friendly.
Excellent food and the staff was second to none. We hung out at the bar and talked with the bartender Diana, she was a blast. When we went to our table our waiter was friendly, attentive, and very precise. Had such a good time we went back to the bar after dinner. Loved the place!
First time there. Absolutely fantastic experience. Couldn’t recommend it more highly. Will definitely go again and would be great for anything from a casual meal to an important occasion. You can’t go wrong.
Reserved days ahead, requesting table with view
Upon arrival, no record of my reservation.
Did manage to secure a table
Oysters-shells were open luckily 😃
Muscle was not detached from the shell.
Needless to say will not be returning.
Thanks to server TrillionAnne, she made the experience tolerable with her great personality.
I am not sure I would recommend. I asked for a great table with a view in my reservations. It was a warm day. We were given an exterior table. No assists with moving of the umbrella to help with the sun. We asked to come inside instead to a better environment and our server seemed bothered. We waited a long time for our drinks and a side of lemons. The photographer had to go get our lemons and did it within minutes actually seconds. We had to continue to order items with other staff members.
Nice environment. The Paella perhaps not the best choice for this restaurant was ok. The general dish was too liquid. Perhaps smaller portion and better types of seafood-- Prawns not tiny shrimp.. etc.
Wine pours were generous
The food was absolutely amazing!!! Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was fantastic!!
The service was outstanding! We had a lovely table looking out onto the bay. Our server, Manuel, was excellent. The food was very good, including calamari, crab cakes, fish tacos, and clam chowder. The only letdown was the Ahi Tuna. The teriyaki sauce obscured the taste of the fish. Desserts of melted lava cake and creme brûlée were delicious.
Oysters weren’t as cold as I wished. No one explained the variety of oysters so it was a mystery. Ordered grilled halibut and it came out with no seasoning, no butter, and steamed squash. Very blah.
Average food, busy with slow service. Touristy
Beautiful view and window seat. Staff was friendly and promptly. Food was good. Fish tacos were heavy on toppings and overpowered the fish. Bread was excellent.
Just OK. View of the bay was the reason we selected this restaurant— that was nice. The food was just average and the wine list was poor.
Really disappointed in this meal. Would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Food was below average, the waiter had no personality. The prices were too high for the quality.
New Year’s Dinner
Beautiful location and views. Service was great.
The quality of the food could have better considering the cost.
We easily made reservations, we were seated right away and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Food was amazing. Everyone in our group of six absolutely loved their meals.
Overpriced tourist trap
Wonderful food! Everything was fantastic and the view of the water is very nice
It was Christmas Eve and my wife of 52 years were going to enjoy a nice dinner by ourselves. Food and service was excellent and the ambiance would have been superb had it not been for very small children crying and screaming close to our table.
The Harbor House was the perfect place to watch the Parade of Lights. The service was great and the ambience was perfect for our evening plans.
I had a nice time on this restaurant, with a great view of San Diego Bay, IPA beer was delicious, calamaries was not tender, clam chowder was salty, bread was pretty good, pacific fish was not the taste I was expecting, and coconut shrimp was ok. I come to this restaurant to have a delicious and tasty meal but, I didn't have the experience I was expecting, for the price I paid.
The staff was very nice. They took your photo when you got there and then offered to sell you a copy. That was different. We had been to Harbor House five years ago - the food was good then. This time, it was not so good. Will not return as there are too many other choices very close by.
Arrived at the restaurant at 6pm and was seated right away. Customer service was slow. Ordered the Turkey Dinner they offered for the Holiday. My dinner was missing the gravy and Acorn Squash. Took an additional 15 minutes to get served. Expected a festive Thanksgiving but the Harbor House was not up to par. Will not go back.
We enjoyed our visit for the most part. The food was good, and the view is terrific. Service was mostly good but we had to ask three times for them to bring us some sour dough bread which is available on request. Oddly there are no side dishes available to order separately and many entrees do not come with any. It was a cold rainy day outside when we visited yet they still had the air conditioning on inside. So we were chilly the entire time. We had to wear our outer jackets to ward off the chill.
Harbor House is one of our favorite seafood restaurants. The food and service are always first rate.
I already have! The food was excellent with generous portions and great service.
Food was fantastic! The view was amazing and our server took excellent care of us. The only downside was that the drinks were terrible, but stick to beer or wine and you’ll having an amazing experience
Food was great! Service was a little slow. We were seated and the restaurant was maybe 25% full and we had to wait to order approximately 10 minutes after being seated. Ordered Lobster Mac & Cheese app, and swordfish plate for main dish. Food exceeded expectations. Crank up the service and it’d be a solid 4.5 stars.
Service was a bit slow but once we ordered appetizers were out within 10 mins. Food was all exceptional!
Harbor House was great! Four of us met for lunch to have mini 50 year reunion. We weren't rushed when it came to ordering our meal. We were too busy talking! We sat there for over 3 hours and not once did we feel harassed or rushed to leave. We had a lovely leisurely lunch. Thank you Harbor House!
Jojo was exceptional! The ambiance was excellent. The sound level was low so we could talk. The food was excellent. The service was exceptional.
The service was really good. We didn’t wait for anything and the waitress was really great. Views of the water are really gorgeous. Food was disappointing. I had the seafood risotto. Super blah not worth the price. Hubby’s steak was dry and whatever. Would come back for a lunch or some cheaper food for sure.
Food was great, drinks were exactly what we were looking for, gorgeous views, can't wait to come back again.
All was good.
