Side dishes came a good 5 minutes after main dishes and server forgot one major side . Not good service.
Staff is always attentive and wonderful and the food delicious! Need to come here more often.
We had the best time. Everything was great. The food was perfect.
I thought the restaurant was very lovely with a beautiful view, a wonderful Thank you to the manager for checking on us to see if the food and service was good. I look forward to going back to the restaurant...
We went to Island prime for our wedding anniversary. 40+ years. The food was outstanding. Three of us were dining my husband my son and I. We ordered prime rib, lamb chops, and ribeye steak. With two sides. Josh our waiter was outstanding. And the food was scrumptious. The portions were quite large and we ended up taking quite a bit home. The lamb chops run a better farro that was to die for. The menu prices are high but worth it for a special occasion.
Wish they had large table right by the window , otherwise excellent
Outstanding in every way. Who would expect a well traveled person would say “the best steak I have ever had was in San Diego - at Island Prime. Simply the truth - Eye of the Ribeye from Snake River farms. Service and everything else matches the steak - perfect!
Honestly the best steak I’ve even had. I blackened the center cut rib-eye and ordered medium rare. Crusty, tender, and buttery texture—seriously flavorful for an excellent cut of meat prepared perfectly. After a few days, I tried to recreate at home only to marginal results. I need to know the secrets: sous vide? Cast iron? Corn starch to dry the rub and help the crusting?
Best window table in the restaurant! Thank you so much! Courtney took excellent care of us!:)
Ryan and Enrique (better roll those 'Rs') were superb in their knowledge of wine and entertainment, as well as their attentive service!
I love my corner table and the hostesses were incredible in timing our visit to include that...even though it can't be guaranteed!
I'll be back for more...thanks for the memories!
Awesome first time experience ! Your service exceeds my expectation! Will definitely come back!
Amazing dinner and staff!!!
Picked my wife up at the airport, as long time San Diegians have eaten here a lot. Love the view of the city, great food, and outstanding service.
I have eaten here many times with clients when I'm in town. This past visit will be my last. The VP of a Hotel Company who was with me felt the same way and he would not recommend this place anymore as well. Steak was very tuff then I was charged $40.00 for 4 scallops. The waiter told us he rang it up under a new entre since that is what he was told to do. This waiter also should have said something and not wait till the bill came. First time ever I also gave less then a 10% tip to any waiter.
The view was fantastic and server was good and food served up very quick. The bisque was great. The steaks were ok. We tried the ribeye, but my first steak was well done and had to send it back. The second one was cooked medium and was flavorful. The ribeye was a special breed but was more like a strip steak texture and very lean.
A very classy restaurant with sensational food . The ambiance is very nice and if you sit by the window you can see a beautiful view of the waterfront of beautiful San Diego.
Amazing Experience All Around!!!! Especially appreciated the Gluten Free options for our good friend that has Celiac Disease. The whole staff catered to our every need. I will for sure come back for the Sous Vide Filet Mignon that just melt in my mouth.
Everything about this place is spectacular!! The food, the service, and the ambiance. We were there for our Anniversary and all the staff were extremely pleasant, plus we were able to get a window seat. This was our third time there and we always plan to celebrate an event here. I can’t say enough about the food. It was over the top!
Always have a good experience everytime i dined in. Employees are nice and friendly. The food was really good.
The cod with clams and lobster was delicious. My wife had the scallops which were sweet and tender. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We brought friends from Atlanta who were impressed by the view and the food. We will be back.
Amazing meal. Best steak I've ever had. Lobster tail perfectly cooked.
Delicious filet mignon. Truffle mashed potatoes and bacon wrapped asparagus were great too and large portions.
We always have a very pleasant dining experience here. Food and service are A+++++
Known for their prime rib they were out at 7:30 on a Monday night. Three entree's came out and had to wait for the 4th and I mean wait. The floor manager was a gracious as she could be.
We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. Invited our maid of honor and best man of 47 years. We each ordered something different, but it was all excellent. There were enough leftovers to make a wonderful lunch the next day. San Diego skyline is an excellent reason for going to Island Prime. Waiter was outstanding and food was excellent.
view , as always is spectacular. Food was delicous and beautifully served. Waiter was so knowledgable and pleasant. Helped us pick a great bottle of hungarian wine....which was award winning and outstanding. ..not cheap...but really good. Deborah Scotts food never disappoints.
The view of the bay is outstanding. The food excellent. Service polite and not rushed.
Good service, server attended to our needs, Food was great and plenty of it. Cocktails were good.
We love it there, the food is outstanding, the services is exceptional and should I say the views? To die for!!!
Wonderful experience celebrating my best friends birthday.
I highly recommend Island Prime :)
This was our second visit to Island Prime, which was highly recommended by our friends. We decided to spend our anniversary dinner here for the excellent food and beautiful view of San Diego and the bay. It couldn't have been better! The service was THE BEST because they were attentive and very friendly. We especially enjoyed chatting with Suzanne when she came to our table to see how the meal had been. Those personal connections make customers come back again! The food was delicious! I love their bread popovers, the drawn butter was kept warm for my lobster (nice finding lobster for under $45), and the sides were very good. I had Brussel sprouts while my husband had Iris's Salad, which is outstanding. I think the baked potato was overpriced, so we won't get that again. For our anniversary dessert they gave us a lime tart, which was a nice ending to our evening. Try to go before sunset so you can see the view before the evening lights come on in the city. It looks like we have a new favorite place to eat!
We came at 8:30, at 9:00 we were almost the last guests and did not even got our beer. Waiters were talking to each other’s... Food was ok but presented without love: steak on plate, a slice of pepper
Fantastic food with a beautiful view 💕
One of the three sides delivered was incorrect. We pointed it out and they immediately took the one side away and about 10 minutes later delivered the correct side. The delay was too long. Plus, when the bill came, the incorrect side, which was more expensive, was still on the bill. Why didn't you ask if you could leave the incorrect side while you fixed the mistake? It didn't make sense!
Great view, good food. Excellent service. Zzzzzzzzzz
Been here many times. Always a pleasure. View to city skyline can’t be beat.
I could write a few paragraphs but do yourself a favor and go!
Food was good but it was very noisy and service was not good. After going to another restaurant on the water close by I aould say the view was just ok. Was not worth what was spent.
Always fantastic. Award winning chef Deborah Scott does a fantastic job with every item on the menu. Always great, and a hit with everyone I've ever taken there, and instantly becomes their San Diego favorite as well. Highly recommended.
It was VERY special...from the greeting and the special accommodation made by the hostess, to the friendliness of the bartender, to the professionalism of the service(Carry) to the attention of service from the support staff, to the great apps (oysters,crab cake,lobster bisque), to the view, to the great recommendation of wine, to the amaretto dessert, it was ALL great! My friend’s entree’s (scallops and rib eye) were exceptional, mine was the rack of lamb which was the only low point of the night. It was just a bad cut of meat but it was addressed to Chef and the faro risotto was excellent. Can’t wait to come back!
You cannot beat the view. There were so many sailboats on the evening we went. It was so fun to watch them sailing all around the harbor.
The food was good. Bread and Cesar salad were the best! I had the chicken. If was delicious.
