I love this place. The one good thing about Covid was they started taking reservations, which they didn't before. It used to be so hard to get in, with long wait times. Now you just make your reservation and you're in. The ambience, food, service, everything is just perfect here.

Long time fan of the Skirts on Fire..meat overcooked, no flavor in dressing...tiny chunks of meat over cooked... no flavor?!? For a salad at 24.00??? Bummer... and all the wavy Covid plastic panels obstruct the view... the flat panels at the bank let me see the tellers more clearly !!😩
So our 75.00 lunch with no view, no flavor.... was the first Cohn restaurant bummer I’ve had in many decades... until verse is tough enough... if you’re gonna spring 75.00 for lunch WITH NO DRINKS....major bummer

Anna was our server and she was excellent. We all enjoyed our food while sitting outside. A little difficult to sit there with the sun in our eyes but we were able to manage. Loved the view.

Normally one of my favorite places to eat. And our server, Jessie, was amazing; friendly, and around when needed. What was disappointing to me was the food was not up to par this time. I've never been let down by the food at any of the Cohn restaurants, especially C-Level, but this time- it truly wasn't very good. The calamari was chewy, very. And I asked for my filet to be cooked medium but it was almost all rare. Could not eat the last 1/4 of it because it was not cooked at all. It also had a bit of a gamey flavor about it- which I found very unusual. I had one of the best steaks I've ever had at C-Level one year ago; this steak was NOT that. Also- my friends lobster bisque looked too think and not smooth in texture. Not sure what's going on, and I know C-Level isn't the highest priced restaurant, but it IS on the higher end, so to pay over $100 for the two of us for sub-par food, well, it made me sad. I hope they figure out what's going on and get back to making great food.

C-Level has gorgeous views, attentive staff and delicious food and drinks. I love the artichoke appetizer and mud pie for dessert. I have never had a bad meal here and think it's a MUST to eat here for a beautiful casual meal with stunning views. P.S. The mud pie is amazing.

Let's be honest you don't go to C-Level because its a Michelin star restaurant you go there for the ambiance and the view... and for that the place was up to par. The food is good American "bistro" food, nothing to complain about. That being said, if you are in San Diego, go to C-Level you may not remember the food but you will never forget the view.

Food and service are both good, not to mention the view is exceptional. We didn’t get to sit next to the water since it was all taken, but it does not block the nice bay view with Sails. Waiter was extremely helpful since we were there during lunch and was looking for some dinner fish plates. Waiter confirmed with chef and chef agree to make two dinner dish a Grill Sword fish and Pan fired Salmon. We have ordered other lunch dishes and they were all good except the accommodations for the Grill Swordfish was too salty and the crust of Salmon was bitter due to burn. Over all we have good lunch with great service.

Our experience was the best. I chose the restaurant for my 50th birthday and had an amazing evening. The environment is casual or nice however you want it to be. The food was amazing along with the cocktails. Our server Charles was the best. We took his food recommendations and were so pleased. He was very attentive and very pleasant. Amazing dinner.
