On vacation and met friends here for sushi. The sushi was very fresh and delicious! We liked it so much we went back for dinner the same night to watch the sunset and had a few more rolls. Highly recommend!

Cannonball offers a cool dining experience beachside. Sushi was great - we loved the lobster roll. Our other apps came out cold. Service was subpar. Music was far too loud - I'm in my 20's, so I get it, but it was at the point we had to yell to hear each other. It's not a spot to dance, so I really don't get it. I probably would have given an extra star if the music had been turned down (I asked).

This was the first time we went to Cannonball and we went for sushi. If you're looking for great sushi, I wouldn't come here. The experience was fun - we loved the view and the cozy rooftop heaters (I could actually take off my sweater because I was nice and warm), but the food left something to be desired. It wasn't a typical sushi menu - the rolls we got were just okay and we didn't love the seaweed salad as an appetizer. The calamari was spicy and decent. But I'd recommend this place more for drinks and the view than the food!

Cannonball is one of my favorite places to enjoy watching the sunset and have a delicious dinner.

To list a few favorites such as mussels, the lobster roll, and the ribeye.

Thursday’s live music is a great experience if you can plan a sunset dinner on a Thursday, I think you should experience it. Enjoy!

My husband and I got married on Sunday & flew in from Houston, TX to celebrate our honeymoon! This restaurant came as a recommendation from our good friends back home. It was our first dinner together as a married couple. The service was great, and they were super accommodating to our seating preferences as it was a bit chilly outside and very warm under the space heaters. Food & drinks were delicious!

Actually it’s my first time there for a friend’s birthday and we all loved it. Even tho it’s winter but because we are there for lunch it’s prefect. We loved the food, the service, the atmosphere and temperature. Thanks

We had an excellent experience at Cannonball! We were seated quickly then asked to have our seats moved to a warmer location with no trouble. Food and drinks were exceptional and we plan to go back whenever in the San Diego area.

NYE dinner was delicious! Complimentary champagne, appetizers, and dessert! The specialty rolls were also solid, aim for the enfuego, the oishii, or the tatsu and you can't miss. Didn't try the sashimi, but the salmon and yellowtail nigiri was fresh and tasty. Would do again

The outdoor seating was too windy so it made all the food cold immediately. The "DJ" was terrible, playing old house music along with a electronic violinist. Weird. We requested a less windy table and was told no because they were holding it parties of two. We were a party of two and there were about 4 tables open. Just terrible.

Not the best sushi I’ve had, but I did enjoy the Tuna Sensation roll! Waiter was a bit too pushy trying to get us to buy more and more food/drink so that made it a bit uncomfortable. Very nice location though and drinks are good

My only wish is that we would have been there during the day for the view. But even during the evening, it was a wonderful experience. Dinner was great, drinks were great! Dessert was not as good as we’d hope.

The sunset was beautiful but also blinding and sitting at the heater was also a bit uncomfortable but I understand the accommodation needs during the winter. We were charged extra for more bread for our soup which seemed silly. The spider roll was okay. Overall though, great experience. We will come back to try other items.
