Sushi
Sushi with a splash! Besides the delicious Coastal Cuisine, small plates menu and sushi, this oceanfront restaurant is also serving up the best view in San Diego! It’s never been more enjoyable to sip on refreshing seasonally inspired beach craft cocktails while soaking up the essence of the beach. With thoughtful details and accents, this Mission Beach outdoor rooftop transports you to a pool-like setting without all the splashing and twice the views! So dive in, there’s nothing quite like Cannonball #splashresponsibly

Being seated was weird. We had reservations and it took 15 mins or so to be seated. OpenTable later notified me that we had missed our reservation. I confirmed with them we were there and the matter seemed to be resolved. That's the only reason it not 5 stars. Waitress was great. Amazing views and delicious food.

We booked through open table, we drove 200 miles and finally got there and the restaurant was closed. No one bothered to contact us to let us know they were closed. Very disappointing.

What a lovely dinner! This will definitely be a stop any time I come to San Diego. I believe our waitress was Erica? She was lovely! I was on a date so I was concentrated on my handsome guy, I do apologize if her name was not Erica lol but we got two beers, two rolls, and enjoyed seating right by the windows. The view was absolutely beautiful. We ordered a lobster roll and a yoshi roll... both delicious!! The service was great, the place was clean, the pricing was reasonable. Definitely recommend this spot!

We made a reservation for lunch since we knew it would be crowded at the beach from spring break. We were originally placed near the restrooms at the far end of the restaurant. We asked to change our table and we were quickly accommodated. The service and food were great!

Our birthday celebration here at Cannonball was a great experience. Loved the seating (lounge area for 6), service was great; very attentive and accommodating. The food was very delicious and best of all, the bill was under $300! Great place, beautiful views, great food! I’ll definitely return!

The atmosphere and views are incredible. This is a great spot for families and groups, as well as a casual date. I did feel that the sushi rolls were rather average. However, the appetizers (Shishito Peppers & Lobster Spinach Dip) were fantastic!

This place is worth it for its location on the beach and views of the sunset. I would recommend going for a drink and an app rather than dinner. The sushi was below average. We sat right underneath a speaker playing very loud music so that was unfortunate.

Our time at Cannonball was amazing..... from the bartenders and locals. But our server Stephanie was above the mark!! She was the best we have had. Manager Kristine was so caring and talkative and sweet! They run like a true restaurant: will come back again and again! I am a service provider and they got me from the git go!!!! ❤️❤️

Our table was great. The wait staff and bartenders were rude and unfriendly. The hostesses were very nice. I may go back to see if it was just those people. But if it is like that again. I will not be back.

Giving this 1 star because they did not contact me to tell me that they were closed due to weather on my birthday. They called while I was in the shower, did not leave a voicemail, did not answer when I called them back, and did not attempt to reach out to me via text, email, or through OpenTable. We went to Cesarina instead and it was excellent.

Very inattentive service took 45+ minutes and several asks to close out check, once check received and card taken by server, server preceded to wait on several tables for another 15 minutes before we finally flagged managements attention again to get our card returned so we could leave. Comped a couple drinks in the process but still..,somebody help train this poor girl who was trying to be nice so she can stop batching everything she’s doing for several tables creating ridiculous lead times for everybody for everything.

Otherwise beautiful view and decent food.

Coming from Chicago, it was a must do to eat by the ocean upon our arrival. We happened upon Cannonball and couldn’t have been happier. The service was friendly, attentive, and included great recommendations. The wine we selected was outstanding, and the seafood was fresh and tasty. Our favorite was the mussels and chorizo with a sauce that we loved. We will definitely be back at our next visit to Southern California!
