Very disappointing meal. Four of us tried several items on the menu. Risotto starter was bland and price for portion was excessive. Swordfish special catch of day was bland and over cooked. Salmon was cooked correctly and tasty. Seared Ahi starter actually showed up after swordfish main and was 3 small pieces of seared ahi- also priced excessively based upon portion. Baked Alaska with salted caramel ice cream was pleasant but having to rely on desert to save dinner does not make for a good meal. Very disappointed with cost, portion sizes and ability of the restaurant to handle delivery of our meals especially since it was a Wednesday night after 730pm and restaurant was minimally full of patrons. I can not recommend this restaurant.

I have been here many times before but I went yesterday to celebrate my birthday. We had an amazing brunch Buffett with bottomless mimosas. We sat outside and the view is just incredible. Day or night it is amazing and romantic. They changed the Buffett items and now offer more. The gyozas are new and let me tell you amazing!! Whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or cocktails you can't go wrong with this place.

The wife and I were staying at the hotel and we ended up here a few times over the weekend. The service and food were above average for hotel locations so good job. One note, we ate too much bread (it's so good) so be careful. All the staff were very nice and had good suggestions, and the view of the marina is nice. If we stay at that location again, we would go here for a convenient meal.

I was having a business lunch at the Marina Kitchen with a difficult customer. I was in La Jolla and running 15 mins late. I called Marina Kitchen to have them inform my guest that I was late but the restaurant had no recall or idea of my reservation. They also did not do anything to help with communicating to my guest that I was late. When I got there, my guest ordered a salad and after he had eaten half of it, he discovered a plastic disc in the salad. (It was one of those plastic clips that's used to close plastic bags of bread, etc.) I was appalled. My guest was not a guest of the Marriott Marquis, but I was. When the server came over, she took the plastic disc from us and said she would take it to the kitchen. There was no apology. Then the manager came over and he said they are making sure it doesn't happen ever again. No apology. No compensation. With that, I told the manager that I refused to pay the bill for our lunch. And we got up and left the restaurant. I will never go back there and I will NOT stay at the Marriott Marquis for any future business trips. That was a horrible experience.

Ver comfortable outside seating with heaters. Food was good. Had some appetizers - burrata was excellent - I love garlic but the bread that came with it was a little too garlicky . Good, creative drinks.

For convenience ( my husband attending a conference at the Marriott) I made reservations at Marina Kitchen. We were seated overlooking the marina. The wine/ drink list is extensive with options by the sommelier ( wine by the glass not usually sold by the glass), wines by the glass ,then bottles of wines from all over! Impressive number of options.
The bread is a crusty loaf that defies description ( other than to say I ate four pieces..which I never do) served with butter or a tomato/ olive oil purée.
My husband ordered the four sampler option ( he shared of course) Caesar salad,seared ahi starters..the dressing was one of the better ones I have tasted and the romaine was in nice bite size pieces instead of the full leaves lots of places have gone too. He enjoyed his steak, my cioppino over pasta had a lovely thick tomato broth and plenty of perfectly cooked seafood. The baked Alaska finish was a delicious finish to the meal ( which despite sharing was more than we could finish...
Probably thanks to the bread). Our waiter Anthony had great recommendations. Perfect evening

The best meal we had in our week long business/vacation trip. I am never one to go for hotel restaurant, but we were exhausted after a day of convention and we chose to give it a try. Our waiter was awesome our wine service was great. The food was amazing... yes I said amazing. We chose 1 four course meal and shared the appetizers, plus one additional main course. The appetizers were small but so very fresh and flavorful. Our main course the filet and a special of the day chicken were so good. Desserts were just as good. The vanilla cake was to die for. We loved it so much that we went back on our last night in SD.
Very well done Marina Kitchen

Had a breakfast meeting during recent convention and the service was attentive to the need to complete the meal in the hour we requested without pushing us. We were in a back booth which was quiet; don't know if the open areas would have been as conducive to business talk.
Food was good, service excellent.

If you go to the Marina kitchen the salads are the best thing on the menu. Also our service from Michael was so exceptional for a hotel restaurant. We even talked about how his service was some of the best we have received anywhere at any restaurant in awhile. Ask for him, he's the best.

This restaurant is spacious with a well laid out buffet filled with whole fruit, a variety of pastries, bagels, with different types of tables- high tops, booths, long rectangular tables, that can accommodate large parties. . it has a fantastic view of the pool and the decor is modern and interesting. They offer two types of buffets. Continental for $17, Full breakfast for $23. Either one comes with juice and coffee.

The hostesses are pleasant and the servers are professional and attentive.

Breakfast is well worth it and we plan to return.

We had breakfast at the Seaview in the Grand Hyatt the day before. In comparison, we enjoyed having breakfast at this restaurant more. We will definitely return while in San Diego.

We were given bread plates immediately, but no bread was served until we specifically asked why we had bread plates and no bread. They expect people to ask before they will serve bread. Each plate served to the 7 in our party was okay, but certainly not memorable in any way.

I wasn't sure what I'd be getting, booking a business breakfast here, but it went beautifully thanks to Emeralda, our waitress. She made sure we had plenty of coffee, was nice as can be, and gave up plenty of space so that we could conduct our meeting w/out interruption. My breakfast was so fresh and healthy - the egg white frittata w/ salon, side of sauteed spinahc, fresh fruit. I would definitely come here again, for a meeting or just a simple meal.
