The focal point in Oceana Coastal Kitchen's main dining room is an impressive 800-gallon aquarium, while a sliding window fully opens to showcase unobstructed views of Mission Bay.

Oceana Coastal Kitchen offers an al fresco experience for guests, complete with sleek booths and tables with sweeping panoramic waterfront views. Led by Executive Chef Paul Arias, favorite menu items include the Oceana House Roll, the Harris Ranch Ribeye, and the Striped Seabass.

    We enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Oceana's "Wild Wednesdays"! It was a four-course meal involving the chef's personal pairing of seafood selections. The service was outstanding and food delicious, as we dined on the outside patio with a live solo musician playing excellent acoustic songs!!!

    We had booked a table for the Easter Sunday buffet at 3 PM, but when we arrived, most of the food was already leftovers. We asked one of the waiters if they were going to refill it, but they said no. Eventually, one waiter gave us some lobster and ribs, almost a full plate that we couldn't finish eating. By 4 PM, they were already packing up, and there was no more food left. We didn't get to try the pastries, sweets, or omelettes. We were disappointed because this was our first time in San Diego, and we chose this place for brunch because it looked nice. Unfortunately, it was not as expected, causing a lot of disappointment and leaving us unsatisfied. They should have fully refunded our payment due to their service, or at least informed us that there would be no more activities and food left so we could adjust our expectations. Instead, they only gave us a discount.

    Convenient as we were staying in the hotel, food was priced moderately, I had the Dungeness crab pasta, and it had a generous amount of crab. The service was poor, very slow. The waitress said she would be right back with utensils and was over 10-minutes, while our food got cold. The manager made it right and comped our breakfast the next day even though we told them it wasn’t necessary.
    Oceana Coastal KitchenResponded on April 2, 2024
    Dear Bonnie, thank you for dining at the award-winning Oceana Coastal Kitchen.

    First I would just like to say the servers were the sweetest and the location and ambience was perfect. I had really high hopes for the food which we both found to be at or below average. The sea bass sandwich we were the most excited about and it was unfortunately barely edible. The crust was too thick, oily and no flavor and the fish inside was overcooked. The orange mouse cake however was delicious!!

    This brunch was very disappointing when it came to the variety of food and availability of items as stated on the menu as well as on the website for a champagne brunch. For $65, there was hardly any seafood, sushi, and assortment of what was listed on the menu. Tuna seemed to be the only available sushi both Nigri and sashimi. 45 minutes into the brunch, salmon nigiri was available. The stations were not replenished as expected for any brunch. My friend requested tongs to avoid cross contamination between shellfish and sushi. Overall there seemed to be a lack of attention to the buffet items available to guests in a timely manner. The presentation of the food as well as the quality of food was not up to standard for $65 per person. The saving grace for this brunch was the atmosphere, and our server who was amazing, Adriana. Unfortunately I will not be going back to a once popular spot, I used to frequent being a San Diego native. What was even more disappointing was I brought my friend who drove down all the way from Los Angeles with expectations this brunch would meet her ideal brunch experience.

    First time visiting. We sat outside on a cool evening. Not all the heaters were working despite an attempt to reset them so it was a little cool. The caesar salad was ok. The artichoke flat bread was very, very good. The scallops and the salmon were excellent! The rum bread pudding was delicious. The wine list is limited. Did get to try for the first time the new non-alcoholic beer - Athletic. After dinner we went outside to the water - lovely setting.

    Food service was slow and was just OK which is sad for the price. Menu was limited. Tried the bread, sushi and crab pasta. Sushi was loose rolled and tasted kind of plain. Crab tasted fishy and not sweet. Nice location but not worth a return visit.

    My wife ordered the Crispy Salmon - medium rare. It came out medium well done. We ordered the bread pudding desert. Portions of it were burnt! Both were taken off our bill. Our server would drop off our salads and then would disappear and we would have to chase down another server for salt and pepper. Same when our dinners arrived. She did not come to see if everything was prepared properly. It was only when she came to clear our plates that we complained about the fish being over cooked. We were never offered coffee or tea at the end of our meal to go with our desert. Don't see us coming back anytime soon.

    Went to dinnner alone and sat outside in the heated outside area. The ambiance was delightful with a single singer entertainer who was very good. The scallop dish was VERY good and I highly recommend.

    Everything was amazing. I would have voted the ambience as outstanding if it hadn't been for the music. Whoever was doing the live entertainment is a great musician, but his voice is terrible. He was off tune and the tone was not to my liking. It made me want to hurry up and leave so I wouldn't have to hear it anymore.

    The facility is fabulous. We could have spent more time in the bar. The bartender made great drinks and was very cordial. Food quality was great but what was disappointing was that this was advertised as a Sushi Bar which it is not. Yes, they have Suahi items on the menu but it is not their specialty. It is expensive but what isnt these days. If you want Sushi go to Sushi Ota. Service was very good but it should have been as we were the only ones in the dining room. It was a Monday evening. Would I go there again? Probably but only for happy hour in the bar! Cheers

    Dear guest, thank you for taking the time to write this review. Although we understand that you were under the impression that we are a sushi bar, we're not sure where you found that information. Our restaurant profile describes our cuisine as chef-driven, California cuisine along with modern, ocean-inspired design. Sushi is one of our popular specialty items. Again, thank you for your feedback. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

    A very pleasant dining experience, with the outdoor dining area providing a perfect view of the SEAWORLD New Year's Eve fireworks show in the distance.

    Food and service was amazing. What lacked on NYE was music. Volume very low. Singer was great. But, you couldn’t hear him. I don’t agree with the extra percent you tip the kitchen staff. Just my opinion.

    New Year’s Eve service poor; portions minuscule; egregiously expensive for what was provided. Food quality and presentation quite good.

    The food was mediocre at best. Grilled cheese had barely any cheese and the bread was so thick- the tomato soup it came with was decent. The entrees are roughly $30-35/each so not really worth it for what you get. Our server never came to check on us and we had to go to the host stand to request ketchup. Very understaffed.

    The Christmas Day brunch was very nice, but I was shocked by the price. It was much more pricey than the advertised champagne brunch on the website. The price wasn’t disclosed in advance. I likely would not have paid the price had I known.
    Oceana Coastal KitchenResponded on January 1, 2024
    Dear Amy, thank you for dining with us on Christmas Day. While we are aware of your concerns, we would like you to know that the price was listed on the Christmas Brunch page menu to provide guests with as much information as possible. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year.

    My husband ordered the roasted duck legs and I got the Tomato Mozzarella Flatbread. Both were good. Hannah was our server. We were talking to her about trying to book a table for brunch and couldn’t do it. She said she can ask her manager and she comes back with a table for 2 booked for 8am Christmas Day. For dessert, we ordered 2 whoopie pies. Everything was good and we’ll definitely be back again.

    I made a reservation for 1 and got to the Host Stand. The hostess asked me if I wanted to sit outside and I asked if I could sit inside if possible. She led me to a table off to the side. A server came by to bring me a water and then my server came by to ask me what I wanted to start with. I ordered the Roasted Beet and Citrus Salad with the bleu cheese emulsion to start. It was so good. It had grapefruit as the citrus. If you like bleu cheese, definitely order this. Then I asked the server if I can order off the Kids menu even though I’m well over the age of 12, haha. He said of course! So I ordered Little Shells with marinara sauce and Parmesan. He said they can also do butter and Parmesan too. It was so good! Tip: If you are staying at the Catamaran, they can also charge it to the room.
