About Oceana Coastal Kitchen

Waterfront San Diego Dining

Oceana Coastal Kitchen features chef-driven, California cuisine as well as a modern, ocean-inspired design. The brand new restaurant offers a memorable bay-front dining experience at an iconic Pacific Beach hideaway.

Ranging from casual to upscale, the airy waterfront restaurant includes several distinct dining areas such as a quartz-topped cold bar embedded with mother of pearl and sea glass. The focal point in the main dining room is an impressive 800 gallon aquarium, soon the home to fluorescent tropical jellyfish, while a sliding window fully opens to showcase unobstructed views of Mission Bay.

Oceana Coastal Kitchen offers an all-new alfresco experience for guests, complete with sleek booths and tables with sweeping panoramic waterfront views, along with an adjacent lounge featuring flickering flames from tiki torches and lava rock fire pits.

 (Calgary)·Dined 5 days ago

The setting was very pleasant. Service was prompt and friendly, however, it was also sloppy. We ordered a salad appetizer which never arrived, and the server only noticed when the main course was served. By then it was too late, so we cancelled it. Coffee was brought after dinner, without a spoon or sweeteners which had to be requested. The food was acceptable but not great. This was not the kind of dining experience that would be high on our list when we return to San Diego.

Pricey. Also, Person serving me supposedly validated my parking ticket. When I tried to use the ticket, I still had to pay $15. Wouldn't let me out. I had to pay first then go to the front desk and get a refund. Hassle.

 (Minneapolis)·Dined on February 2, 2018

Our waiter was really great - friendly, professional and attentive. Unfortunately the food and atmosphere did not live up to the restaurants reviews. The noise level was louder than expected, due to the resort customers hanging outside the restaurant with their kids. The bathroom was really far away, outside of the restaurant and down two long halls in the resort. As for the food, it ranged from being over seasoned, did not taste/smell great or had lack of taste. For more details on the food, check my husbands Yelp review.

Excellent meal. The scallops were perfectly seared and the smoky braised greens that came with them were almost addictive. One of my guests said the sea bass was probably the best he’d had. I would go back

Arrived at noon on WED, almost empty. No one showed up at our table for ages. Had to get up and go find someone to take our order. The soup arrived, no spoons. Long wait to get spoons and soup not hot. It appears no one was assigned to our table. Eventually a waiter showed up and asked if we would like our main course now? duh, we been waiting for ages. Fish sandwich A+ as was butter nut squash soup. Restaurant wk. special.

All the food was strikingly tasty and perfectly prepared. My short-ribs on a bed of polenta had a gravy that was like ambrosia. The deserts were too tasty to stop - we went home bursting at the seams.

I thought the staff & space was great but was less impressed with the food. I got the butternut squash soup, which was too sweet for my liking. The fish sandwich also seemed to be off - the proportion of bread to fish was not to my liking & the sandwich had a smoky flavor that I couldn't figure out. However the wait staff was extremely attentive & friendly. The view was right on the bay also.

I really enjoyed the service and the food here. I definitely felt like I was in more of a "fine dining" restaurant but at the same time a bit casual. The food was amazing. Sushi and fish are my favorites. The only thing I was a disappointed in was that there was no raw sushi salmon... which is what I was hoping for the most. Also I love nigiri, and there was barely any out on the serving tables and when we requested for some it took almost 15 minutes for 4 pieces to be made. Other than that, our server was amazing and the food was filling. I'd come back occasionally.

The service is impeccable welcoming and happy.

My wife and I came to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was wonderful including the server (who perfectly balanced attentiveness without interrupting our conversations), greeting from manager and hostesses, amazing well-priced foods, and complimentary gluten free bread. It was our first dining experience here, and we plan to come back soon! We have already recommended the place to friends!

I think that Oceana has the best service in all of San Diego. Every single time I dine here, the waitperson has the absolute best manners, a smile on their face and is extremely helpful. Usually a manager also comes by just to check on us. I highly recommend Oceana :-)

For my first time, the place was great! A very nice view of the beach, food was great, and the service was exceptional. I would definitely come back here.

I went to brunch and was satasfied with the seafood options available. I would especially recommend the all-you-can-buffet. If you love fresh sea food, mimosas, and a good view of the beach, this is the place to go.

We took our two daughters (11 and 12) for dinner here on a Saturday night. We were able to get last minute reservations and great seating without a wait. The food was delicious, I had the filet, girls shared the pork chop and my wife had a pepperoni flatbread pizza and Chipotle shrimp cocktail. The house wine and over all wine selection was brilliant. We'll definitely be back!

Dinner With A View
Our dinner at Oceana could not have been better! Definitely try the Diver Scallop sushi roll, perfect for the table to share as a starter. The house Mai Tai might just be the best thing I’ve ever tasted. Our dinners, the halibut and the short ribs, were cooked to perfection. Pro tip: ask for a booth outside and make sure to check out the jellyfish aquarium in the bar!
