I chose this place for a Valentine's date night. Although nice, it was not what I was expecting for the occasion. The food took longer than we expected, and it was bland. The server was great though. She apologized for the food delay, and gave us a round of free wine and dessert. I would give it a second chance, but not for a special occasion.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. It was good - but I would not say great. The wall surfaces are pretty hard so the live music from the bar invades the space. Both times the dining room has been less than half full which adds to the noisiness (no bodies to absorb some of the noise). The view of the yacht harbor and Point Loma is nice. This time the restaurant was using Sea Bass in lieu of halibut in their macadamia crusted fish - not as good. The scallops are excellent. Weird to have to pay for bread when you buy dinner..... The Corn Chowder was good but needed to be hotter - when the Cajun shrimp is cold - it cools the soup down too fast. Server was attentive.

Amazing service for buffet. We had new cutlery every new plate. Even had a steak knife when we got roast beef. Everything was fresh and delicious. Would definitely go again

My wife and I , had dinner on a Saturday night at about 9:00 PM for her birthday, the restaurant was isolated so were sat by the window. The food and service were excellent as well as the food very tasty. We will definitely be returning and would recommend this place to any one who wants to experience great food and live music (entertainment).

Everything we had was delicious. Lobster Bisque and arugula salad were perfect. The braise short ribs were tender and the sea bass was combined with rice to perection. The Poke appetizer had a little too much mayonnaise, so the only area to improve. Service was good and attentive. best dinner I've had in a while

The service was impeccable. Our servers kept my water glass full, even after we had paid the bill. Food was great too, seasoned well, and reasonably priced.

I took my wife here for her birthday on the last weekend of San Diego's restaurant week. It was well worth it. We had reservations for 5:30pm and were immediately seated. There was a live Jazz show scheduled for the night so the crowd was lively. We were immediately attended to by our hostess and the meals came out of the kitchen surprisingly fast. We started with the Seafood Ceviche for my wife and Lobster Bisque for my son and I. The ceviche was extraordinarily wonderful. The seafood was fresh and the mango, lime, and cilantro matched perfectly. The lobster bisque was equally delightful. Creamy texture, and perfectly seasoned. Simple and fulfilling. For the main course, I ordered the red wine braised short ribs, with seasoned vegetables on a bed of seasoned mashed potatoes. This was equally delicious. My wife had the Salmon. This was by far one of the best salmon dishes that I tasted. Overall this was a really great experience and we will be going back!!

Service and ambulance were nice. Food was just average. We expected more during restaurant week. We also happened to be seated next to a very large loud and obnoxious group that really should have been asked to leave. Otherwise it is a nice place. Thankfully there was a good band and dancing next door to make it worth the visit.

We took advantage of the Restaurant Week lunch special and it was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
It was a little on the noisy side but there was a good crowd which accounts for it.
The only thing we take exception to is that bread was not served with the meals. If you want bread, you need to order it and pay.
