I came here for the first time for my birthday and boy was I glad I did!! The views were breathtaking, food exquisite and staff was incredible! Well worth it!!
Great food, great service, & nice view! Will return for special occasion
Island Prime has lost a step since returning from the pandemic. This used to be our all-time favorite place to dine, but after this evening, we probably won’t be returning. The food just isn’t as good as it once was.
Our waiter was wonderful! We were able to take our time and enjoy this once in a lifetime meal to celebrate my daughters graduation from high school. He was very attentive and personable. It was an amazing experience
The quality of the food was poor, as was the preparation.
The view is everything. The food was great! Drink were great as well.
Our server was amazing and the food was fantastic! It was the perfect place to enjoy my last night of my bachelorette weekend in California. If I'm ever in the area I will definitely be back. The view was also a huge bonus to add to the wonderful ambiance of the restaurant.
The food was so good! The service was great & very personable when my order was not cooked well. I would def go back
Excellent date night place. The ambiance was very nice. If it weren’t for the noise level I would oils have given 5 stars. Beautiful views of the SD sky line and the food was phenomenal. I tried a drink called the Desi Arnaz and it’s one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. My overall visit was amazing and I will be back. Well done Island Prime.
We had a great dinner at a great table with corner window views on the water. Our waiter was very insightful and gave great recommendations. We will definitely be back!
Food was amazing. Excellent wait staff. Beautiful view.
Our server Scotty was excellent and the food was fantastic! This is our special occasion restaurant.
Great food, great waitress Courtney, great service, beautiful atmosphere
Great service and good food. Had an awesome time.
Amazing service, beautiful views and the meal was exceptional.
Absolutely wonderful! My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary there and they made the evening very special for us! The food and ambiance was amazing. Definitely recommend it for anyone looking to celebrate any event or even a nice dinner out!
Ambiance, staff and food were amazing!
First time here for 2 out of our party of 4. I did not enjoy it. My filet mignon had no flavor. My dad had the same and his didn’t either.I surf and turfed my meal with prawns and those were delicious. The carne mixed onions on my steak helped add a bit of flavor. The other 2 at the table had prime rib with no complaints. I love good food, and am willing to spend money on good food but this was not worth it at all. Sides were okay. Asparagus, mashed potato’s, and mushrooms. Those were better than the filet mignons. Bathrooms were also disgusting. Looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in a month.
My husband & I went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. They greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" as we checked in and we were seated at our table. We were early for our reservation but they let us know we could have a drink at their bar or could go next door to Coasterra as well. Very friendly and helpful. Our dinner was outstanding as well! Will definitely go back! Thank you for the memorable dinner!
Excellent service and meal. Beautiful views of San Diego
Island Prime was everything plus some! It was simply amazing. We went to celebrate a 29th birthday and the food, service and atmosphere was more than we could ask for. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating to our group. They allowed us to push our reservation to a later time and we did not feel rushed at all to finish (we were the last table in the restaurant). Even after our dinner our waiter Scottie took us to the patio to take group photos with the night skyline. The food was cooked to perfection and the wait staff had amazing recommendations on what to get, all 7 of our group got something different to try and it did not disappoint! This was the most perfect place to end our San Diego trip for the weekend.
Food was amazing! And service was perfect couldn’t have asked for more. Plus we had a beautiful view of the water.
Outstanding! Seth was terrific! Loved our anniversary celebration with family! Thank you!
Steaks are fantastic. Great views. Friendly service.
We went for our for our 10th anniversary and it was amazing. Everything was great! I absolutely would recommend and we will return our next San Diego getaway.
The food and drinks were excellent and the view from our table was incredible. The service was sub-par -- very slow and inexperienced. We had a few snafoos (cold popovers, food taken before we were finished) that were quickly corrected by our waitress and the manager.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Great food, great service and a great view!
So convenient from the SD Airport or any of the hotels along the marina. Beautiful setting.
Excellent food, service, and view as always!!!!! Thank You CRG for yet another wonderful dining experience!
Fabulous ambience! Great Waitress! Food overpriced. Separate veggie dish was wonderful, but the halibut was dry and my husband's steak wasn't a good as we can barbeque at home. BUT I would go back, just not order steak or fish.
Our server was the best we have ever had at a high quality restaurant. The food was delicious and the location is outstanding.
The best way I can describe Island Prime is unexpected excellence. The staff were courteous and our waitress was the ultimate balance of professional and fun. With each new plate the food was expression of flavor with every bite. The ambience was cozy, with beautiful views of the water, bay activities and sunset.
They do the best to seat you near a window and considering how busy it was I have to say I was surprised to be sat in a little corner booth that overlooked some tables in front of me but had the whole view of the bay. The booth was so comfortable for me and my date, I recommend it if your trying to snuggle up a little. Most importantly she was super happy and the night ended amazing after some great food.
The food was awesome, the ambience was relaxed, the lights are dimmed, the hosts and waiters are attentive, and overall a great experience.
Had a very enjoyable dinner. Our table was excellent as was the waitstaff. We were celebrating an early birthday while we were in San Diego visiting our son. We will make a point of coming back to Island Prime when we are visiting San Diego next time.
The food and service was exceptional and appropriately matched the price tag. I can't wait to eat here again.
I did not realize dogs are allowed in this restaurant. We were seated next to a couple with a dog on a lap. Not a tiny teacup/purse dog but a poodle that was carried in. Just sitting on the lap of one of the diners about 18 inches from us, watching us dine. Unusual.
We chose this restaurant to celebrate our son’s bday. It was not the special place we thought it would be. Lots of hype but very touristy.
Celebrated wedding anniversary here. We got a table by the window, which is amazing!! The service was absolutely amazing, and the food is delicious. We had our 11 month old with us, and there is a kid friendly menu!
Island Prime succeeded our expectations a lot! The service was 10/10 and the food was great. A beautiful view of the skyline.
The service, view and food was outstanding. Had the waygu NY and was one of the best steaks I have eaten. I will be returning.
We went to island prime to celebrate our anniversary and expected to have a good experience. The servers and the atmosphere were good but the food was not. I asked for my steak to be medium well and it came back medium rare. we paid $90 for the special which was steak and Diablo prawns and the prawns were not very big and were dry. We spent $230 on dinner and drinks. It was not worth the money at all.This was the worst experience we ever had at Island prime
