I’ve dined here before and had great experiences but my most recent visit was not good, probably won’t be going back :/ The sea bass was superrr dry and tasteless. The 3 other people I was with all said their meals were “just ok.” It’s a great spot as far as a view and there was live music but the menu needs work.

Definitely a must. Located in the Catamaran hotel, the dining is alfresco. Gentle breeze, palms swaying, and intoxicating live music.
Both the hostess and my server were friendly and efficient.
The shrimp cocktail ( pre-made?) came a little too quickly for a relaxing dinner. The salmon was delicious and cooked to perfection. The portions are large. All in all, it was delightful.
Unfortunately, it ended on a negative note when I requested that the two employees at the entrance to the hotel call a taxi for me. “We don’t do that.” Thus began a ten minute argument.
Thank you for dining at Oceana Coastal Kitchen! From the outdoor setting and view to the food and service, we are glad to hear you had an enjoyable dining experience. We also appreciate your feedback about the taxi interaction and are very sorry that your visit ended on a negative note.

Enjoyed a really nice birthday dinner in a beautiful setting! Service was outstanding!
First of all, happy birthday! We are honored that you chose to celebrate at Oceana Coastal Kitchen. Thank you for sharing your wonderful review and we hope to welcome you back again soon.
Everything was good overall, but need an extra / plus / something that makes you come back. 🤷♀️ Maybe a warm smile from the front desk or a kick on the food that makes you 🤤
We enjoyed that walk in the bay after dinner ☺️
Thank you for dining at Oceana Coastal Kitchen! We are glad that your experience was good overall and we appreciate your suggestions as well. We appreciate you sharing your review and hope to welcome you again soon.
Service was extremely slow and our very nice waiter seemed either overwhelmed or extremely inexperienced. Ceviche tasted old and caesar salad dressing was fishy and watered down. Our dinner for 2 came to $170 before tip. A very expensive dinner was extremely disappointing.
Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We love impressing our guests and we are disappointed to hear that we missed the mark on your recent visit. We are truly sorry and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back with a much-improved dining experience.

Our server Joe was amazing such a pleasure
We are glad to hear that you received excellent service from Joe! Thank you for dining at Oceana Coastal Kitchen and for sharing your review.
Service was slow. Shrimp was rubbery. Settings very enjoyable. Valley parking with restaurant validation works great. Would give it another try. But can't recommend it after this visit.
While we are glad you enjoyed the bayfront setting and the parking validation, we apologize that the service was slow and that some of the food didn't impress you. We are dedicated to providing a top-notch dining experience, and we sincerely hope you consider dining with us again for an improved meal.

Service with Charles and Daniel was absolutely EXCELLENT. GREAT JOB.
However, there were Too many little kids running around like it was a playground. Very annoying and distracting and would prevent me from coming back, despite the great service.
We are very glad to hear that Charles and Daniel provided you with excellent service during your recent dining experience! We are a family-friendly destination and appreciate your feedback about the kids. We sincerely hope you will consider another visit in the future.
Terribly slow. Inattentive servers. Food was just alright

Beautiful atmosphere but the food is very meh and not cheap. $38 seabass was dry and salty. $17 crudo was small (expected) and good but not amazing. Service was good. Martini was $20.
We appreciate you sharing your review, Katrina. While we are glad you enjoyed the service and beautiful atmosphere on Mission Bay, we apologize that the food didn't exceed expectations. We have shared your feedback with our team and hope to welcome you again in the future.
Not fine dining. Food was just ok. Be warned: lots of kids

Very disappointing. Food was alright. But don't expect service. We had the worst customer service ever.. and we were celebrating a birthday too .. so sad. We won't be eating here again.

It is our priority to provide wonderful service and food and we sincerely apologize that this was not the case, especially on this special birthday occasion.

The food and ambiance are awful and overpriced. Drive to La Jolla instead abs do not go to Pacific Beach with children. It’s seedy and gross.

We waited 30 minutes after being seated before our waiter came to take our order for drinks or food. We had requested a table on the patio and we’re seated in a booth which had an obstructed view and was near to another very overcrowded booth who’s personal items were spilling out into the the common areas. I ordered sea bass and it was over cooked. My husband ordered short ribs and they were a little chewy.

Very good experience and fun atmosphere!

The menu was not very inspiring and the food was average. We asked for a different table and we were told a big party reserved it. A couple came later! Just all around disappointment.

Great time with great company - service was attentive
We appreciate you sharing your experience and are glad to hear you had a great time with great company. We hope to welcome you again soon!
Loved eating out on the patio. There was a fire eater/hula show on the grass in front of us!
We are delighted that you loved dining on the bayfront patio at Oceana Coastal Kitchen! Thank you for sharing your review and we look forward to your next visit.
The view and service was absolutely excellent. We had an attentive waiter, and the food came out quickly even though it was pretty busy. The drinks were delicious (we got the passionfruit margarita and the blackberry lavender lemonade), but we ordered multiple dishes and found them all to be underseasoned and bland, which was super disappointing considering how expensive it was. My husband even made the comment afterwards, "it was like the cook's not actually tasting their own food," and I couldn't agree more. It felt like there was an element missing in nearly all of our dishes. For instance, the $40 salmon dish was a tiny piece of fish on a bed of couscous--no color, no vegetables, and again not much flavor.
Great ambiance and food
Thank you for sharing your five-star review of Oceana Coastal Kitchen!
Great Environment, very very polite staff. I would love to dine here again!
Very disappointing. We had reservations and were there on time. The server brought ice water out immediately, great. After that however we had to track him down and wait for him all night. Ordered from the other server and asked others for help getting items. 12 minor a glass of wine after waiting ten and asking another server. this is a small place and seemed to have plenty of staff. We didn't bother ordering dinner. Left after Flatbread, which tasted good BTW.
I spoke with manager on way out.
Such an amazing experience. The food was outstanding, staff was so nice, atmosphere was beautiful. Highly recommend for a fine dining experience.
I indicated a birthday celebration during my open table reservation.
Nothing was done nor follow UP or notification that No conplimentary to be made.
Another great dining experience at Oceana! We had breakfast on the patio (again) and enjoyed the bay views, San Diego weather, and, of course, the excellent service and food. Make sure to get the grilled pineapple appetizer!
It can be expensive but worthy of the price with friends. We're in San Diego every 4th of July weekend and eating here is always a highlight. Also, this isn't a place with excessive serving sizes.
Great afternoon late lunch - great shrimp ceviche, nice crab soup and delicious nigiri. Wait staff was super attentive and kind. Great!!!
It was great! Love the outdoor seating looking into the bay.
We had dinner in a booth on the patio. It was lovely, the food was delicious and the service attentive. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The validated parking was convenient. We will definitely come back again, this is a special spot.
Giving you a break since just reopened
Not out normal 5 stars
Lots of inexperienced staff
I just remembered that we’re lucky to be out
This is a great venue to enjoy life itself along with supporting local artists on Wednesday and Thursday Oceana sushi roll is delicious and remember Thursdays is half price bottle wine/champagne
4 stars because they didn’t have ANY beer on tap. Food was great
Made a reservation for a 145 pm table. Arrived and was told by host the patio closed at 145 so only tables available were along a public walkway in direct sun.
Server didn’t greet us for 15 minutes.
Food took forever and server never checked on us.
Were charged for three items and had only ordered two.
This restaurant is part of a hotel
View was ok not like in pictures
Food was ok. This is definitely more suited
