We were unimpressed with the flavor and quality of food we ordered. We ordered off the brunch menu. The bread for the filet mignon sandwich was hard as a rock and the clam chowder was salty. I have to say we were pretty disappointed. We loved the scenic views and servic,e but the food just ruined the experience.

All of the beer battered fried foods for gray and over battered, and all of the sushi dishes were placed at the salad barwhere people had to reach over them to get to other food. The decor was very dated for the price and type of restaurant.

I’ve always enjoyed their Sunday Brunch. Very good champagne service. However they recently raised their price quite a bit and I don’t think it is worth $49.95 per person. I also think the quality decreased some since the last time I visited.

A bit disorganized due to nearby construction, but follow the signs for Ports O'Call Village and you will get there. Great quiet waterfront dining experience, sometimes giant ocean liners and cruise ships go right by the windows. Salmon was done just like I like it. Lots of space, especially outdoors. Nice bar. Boarded-up buildings all around, under major renovation, not much walking, no shopping. Too-loud Latino restaurant with bad food and bad music not far away, ignore it. Ports O'Call restaurant is quiet.

Totally going back again and AGAIN!! The Sunday Brunch is simply AMAZING! Endless mimosas, so many food choices and the omelette was so divine. Did I mention the view yet? Because the view is over looking the gorgeous water, so bring a sweater because it can be a bit chilly. The waiters and waitresses were just so nice and the host as well. They even gave us complimentary whale watching tickets which is what we wanted to do in the first place! So I was so thankful for that! Go support this place it's amazing! Worth every penny!

Food was delicious and service was nice, but rushed. We had a 7:30 reservation on a night they closed at 8:30 and were rushed through our meal. We went during dineLA and were sat without the dineLA menu so when our server came to take our drink order, we asked for it. Immediately upon returning with the menu she asked for our drink order again. The dineLA menu included drinks but we didn't have a chance to look at it yet. I was still eating my entree when they brought out the dessert and since I didn't want my ice cream to melt, I packed up my meal.

I just wished instead of rushing us through our meal, they just didn't take reservations that "close" to closing.

It's not a "fancy" place but the food and ambiance definitely creates a bit of fine dining feel. People should at least be given 90 minutes to enjoy a 3 course meal.

Place needs to be remodeled. Otherwise, the food was great. Service was awesome. Value outstanding. The view of the water and ships/boats passing is relaxing and interesting. Simply outstanding. And not very crowded. Was a hotspot 35 years ago when I proposed to my wife here, but without any building or even cosmetic improvements, this place has been forgotten by most. Nonetheless, definitely a hidden gem.

The only other thing to make it perfect would be oysters on the half shell
Maybe instead of crab legs if that would be possible?

The food was delicious -- I had the blackened salmon, my husband had scallops. And my red wine was a nice big size! Dinner by the window, looking at the harbor was great.

Just one piece of opinionated advice: the bread pudding could lose the chocolate sauce. Definitely not New Orleans style. Exchange the chocolate for a nice bourbon sauce!

I have been coming to Ports O' Call since the 1960s and it was a real treat to be back. Keep this restaurant!!!!!!!

Ports O Call is a wonderful, classic San Pedro place. There are so many great things about it , the view, the patio, the variety of seating options that also include bar and dining room, regular dining room with enormous happy hour. The view, the mix of locals, the happy hour, the diverse menu, lots of beer/wine/cocktails. I do think the food is a little overpriced for what it is; there is definitely a seafood/finer dining quality to the menu, but I find some of the items lacking just a wee bit in terms of preparation, taste. The portions are not always consistent - for instance I ordered linguine with scallops - which was delicious, but there were four scallops smallish size scallops and a mountain of linguine. I've had the salmon, short rib, those were good. I like that they offer fish preparation a variety of ways. The appetizers are good (though I would prefer another option besides tri-color tortilla chips for dips and such), salads, burgers; I find this mostly an occasional issue with dinner entrees. It's a great place to sit, you can enjoy complimentary music, the patio has heaters/fire pit; from the bar seating you can get window views, but this area is noisier and has a lot of TVs; or choose the dining room upstairs. I think the kitchen could use just a little more polish in prep, but I love this place, always bring people!
