C-Level, our bistro style restaurant, is open for lunch daily beginning at 11:30am and stays open through dinner. C-Level offers a beautiful outdoor, heated patio overlooking the San Diego skyline.
The food and the service is always always the best. I absolutely love it here and this is my only second time here . Both times has been the best ! The scenery is amazingly beautiful.
Service was great and always goes beyond expectations. Ribeye was to die for! Made every accommodation to make our dinner special.
Excellent! Fantastic experience. Will definitely visit again!
table was a way too big for 5 people so it was not easy to talk together without having to speak loudly.
Everything was wonderful! Our server was so attentive and every dish we had was great.
It was our first time eating there so we went in not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly elated that it was a great time! Really delicious food, spirits and most definitely a Breathtakingly spectacular view! Would definitely take my Wife there again.
I let the restaurant know I was proposing and they were great about getting us a great spot!
Food, service, and location can't be beat. Can't wait to go back
My daughter's 21st birthday and it was a great memorable night.
Great food and awesome service
Unbelievable as always
Great food and views. Service was outstanding as well.
Parking was confusing as it looked like self parking but were forced to valet. Valet was rude. Restaurant was too crowded as it felt like guests were on top of one another.
The view and service was amazing. The food was ok at best. The steak and potatoes were a little too salty for me and the tiramisu tastes like it came out of the fridge.
Valentine’s Day — Engagement
Valentines Day was amazing! Amidst the busy night, the hostess and waiter still gave special attention to us.
Thank you Island Prime for an incredible dining experience!! Fan for life
Wonderful staff. Very good food and the location was excellent to watch the sunset. Definitely will be coming back soon.
The ambience was nice, service as well. Beautiful front view to the ocean and city, but the food was mediocre. I had way better steaks and meals around the same price or less. This is my second time in the restaurant, and the first time was way better in terms of food, that is why I went back. I would recommend so you can judge by yourself but have in mind that you will spend around 300-400 dllrs for two with average wine or champagne and “okay” food.
You can’t go wrong with Island Prime. Service is awesome, the food is great and the view of downtown and North Island priceless. You will be spending some dinero but if you like good food it’s well worth it. I will definitely be back again.
I love the view and the ambience. The parking was difficult. A very small self parking area and a large $9 valet parking lot. The food was hit or miss. Some was excellent and some really bad. The view was spectacular and great for a special occasion.
Food was very high quality. Wonderful place for a special night out. Pricy but worth it. Would have liked a table with a view but maybe next time I'll reserve sooner and get a view which is spectacular.
Island Prime is our favorite event restaurant. As with all Cohn restaurants, it is excellent - menu, food preparation and presentation, impeccable service, and marvelous view of Downtown San Diego and the Bay. This is a celebration of life venue. On the other end of the building is our favorite "out-of-town visitor" restaurant, C-Level. Same Cohn philosophy, excellent food and service, and views. The prices are a bit more affordable.
Great as always, we love coming here for the food and view
The steaks were not cooked as ordered. Then after the concern was brought to their attention they reheated the cooked steak making it even worse, instead of preparing a new properly prepared steak they merely reheated the under cooked steak making the outside charred. You would think that spending $52 on just the steak alone that they would have made it right. The other steak was over cooked, I think they got they steak preferences mixed up. Either way,, it was not a great experience. The view was spectacular and the waitress was very good. The reaction to a poorly cooked steak was hard to forgive.
Wow, I've been here quite a few times and last night, they totally fell apart. First our waitress vanished. When we flagged someone down, our initial server never reappeared but we had a new server. And Server #2 was NEVER there.
For almost every part of our meal: to order drinks, to order food, to get our food, we had to flag someone down and ask.
It really ruined our experience.
While i've been to Island Prime many times, I don't think i'll be going back anytime soon.
It was our 50th anniversary and it could not have been better!! The waiter after hearing that it was our 50th enabled us to sit in a seat that viewed all of San Diego lights and bay view. It was outstanding. The server, James was the best! We never needed for a thing, our water was filled continually, and it was very, very pleasant.
He had a "Happy Anniversary" written on the dessert plate !!!!
Top notch and I vey seldom say that, because I am very 'fussy'.
Thank you Gaye & Tom
Our reservation was originally for 8 but we had a few cancellations. The service team handled the change with grace and speed. Our business dinner was amazing! Our server was professional, knowledgeable with a delightful sense of humor! The food was as good as the reviews told us it would be. We will be back again when in San Diego! Thank you Island Prime for a memorable evening!
This is our go-to place for special occasions. The view of the bay and city is unmatched, the service is prompt and attentive and the food is, and has always been, excellent. My steak was prepared properly and served exactly medium-rare. My wife's lamb chops were also delicious. A word of caution, however: If you order the twice-baked potato as a side dish be prepared to take most of it home with you. It makes your entrée look like the side dish.
Filet trio was very tasty and cooked to perfection. The Mac and cheese was dry. The filet was good we went with Oscar style and it was a lil fishy. Service was good and the view was good.
Our 20th wedding anniversary couldn't have been better. Scotty, our server, was attentive without being overbearing - and so personable! We were astonished at how crowded was the restaurant on a Monday evening. It's obvious this restaurant's reputation draws diners in: the view, the service, the cuisine! Chesapeake Bay crab cake, two different kinds of steak cooked PERFECTLY, sides that make you wish you weren't a tourist and could take home the leftovers for another night. Great wine selection and a perfect way to commemorate our anniversary. Do not hesitate - make your reservation and enjoy one of the best dining experiences of your life.
Great food and great atmosphere! Our server was amazing and made my husbands bday dinner great!
Early Valentines Day dinner.
It was our anniversary. The view was very romantic. Wait staff very good. Food was excellent.
Visiting Island Prime is always a special experience. The food preparation is excellent and the service is outstanding.
Overall experience was really good. Service, food and view: A.
Fantastic food. Great view. Wonderful service! We will definitely go there again.
Love Island Prime, never disappoints. My favorite restaurant.
Ambiance was nice. Cleanliness was great. Service was really good. Taste of the food was good. The steamed mussels were small but outstanding! We went for our anniversary and I would definitely return.
Food was excellent. View amazing. Service extraordinary. However, overpriced and therefore only for a special occasion
Excellent view and food. Would definitely come here again.
I went to Island Prime to celebrate my 25th birthday. The staff was warm and welcoming. Despite a minor hiccup with our order, the general manager and our server made sure to go above and beyond to make the day a special one.
