About

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 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

Great service excellent food great view only downfall I requested for a corner table balcony beach view next to the beach. Ended up seating with others on a bar table. Still had a great view on the balcony bar table and the people next to us were not obnoxious or annoying. Great ambiance and vibes. No wait time either. Thanks.

I am a San Diego local & love coming in to dine and enjoy happy hour. The service and the employees have always been great and really on top of their ‘A’ game. However, the hostess situation doesn’t level out with the amazing service. My most recent reservation was for a date & the hostess didn’t smile once, was very short, not friendly, positive, or energetic. This unfortunately, isn’t the first time I’ve come across this at the restaurant. The servers & bartenders are the reason my family members and I come back. They’re the real MVP’s & kudos to them and their craft. It doesn’t go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.

Met up with a girl here for a first date and it was perfect. The beautiful sunset view coupled with the lively atmosphere is an ideal spot to make an unforgettable impression. There was even 3 baby dolphins jumping and playing around about 15 feet from the shore line.

Dont expect exceptional service when visiting this spot. The staff seems like theyre waiting for their shift to end instead of having fun and enjoying their job. Totally kills the vibe.

It was my brother’s birthday and I got engaged the day before. I mentioned this on our reservation. There was no mention when we got there and we definitely did not feel special. What should have taken maybe an hour was stretched to 2 and a half hour because the server would take 30 minutes to check on our table and allow us to order our food and drinks. The food was overpriced, probably due to the amazing view. A deep fried small sushi roll should not be $20. The slow non existent service and the fact that there was no mention of the birthday or engagement is awful. I would come back for drinks at the bar for the view, but would not come back to spend $250 for lunch for 4 people.

My husband and I loved this place since it opened. The quality of the food is wonderful. The view facing the boardwalk is where we enjoy watching the sun set. The staff is great, the atmosphere and vibe is good, even the music is great. Always consistent. I recommend this place to everyone.

I'm giving it a 4 for excellent service and the view. Food was just ok though and pretty pricey. For a sushi place, I find it odd that they don't serve eel but have 'eel sauce' on other sushi items. I'd go elsewhere for sushi but it's good for taking visitors out for drinks, the view and friendly staff.

This place was awesome! The service was amazing! Our waiter was understanding, helpful and quite fun to talk to. Definitely recomend this place for dates. It was the highlight of ours. The seating looking out at the ocean was beautiful, and the heaters kept us warm on a cold night. Best date spot ever! Will definitely be back!

I took my wife to this place to try something new and boy were we amazed. The service was so much more than we could have ever asked for. Waiter was attentive and informative.

We got to try some amazing sushi and date night couldn’t have been better. I’m not big on writing reviews but I was truly thankful for the food and for the service.

The ocean view table they reserved for us was incredible. The food was delicious, the service was prompt and respectful (since we didn’t want to order right away), and we were pleasantly surprised when a live guitar player and singer started playing. It was the perfect date night!

Beautiful setting on the beach. Dining area outdoors on 2nd floor offers fantastic views of the ocean, surfers, etc. Great sushi rolls. Nice cocktails. Wonderful service.

Seating was a little crowded (sardine can crowded) and uncomfortable.

The ambiance was delightful but the food was absolutely awful. I went with a friend, and though we ordered only 3 appetizers (one of which was edamame, that was completely over the top and tasted terrible - didnt even know that could happen?) our total was $75. That is including 3 happy hour drinks each, which seems absolutely ridiculous. I ended up going home and making nachos

The ceviche was great. The fish tacos were average with too much breading but the fish was good. Service was perfect as was the view. House Chardonnay was very acceptable. I love this place for many reasons. It's relaxing and can accommodate our family including children. Love the seating options. Very comfortable. There's always a nice breeze and the wait staff is amazing. Free dessert fir birthdays. I'll always come back!

In town from NJ came to enjoy the sunset and was pleasantly surprised by how good the food is here. Don't worry if you see that you can't find a reservation after 5:30 on open table the Cannonball team doesn't rush you at all you can sit and enjoy until the sun sets at 7:30ish. All staff was very friendly and attentive.

My 4th time at Cannonball. They graciously accepted our $100 gift card we purchased through open table. The service is enthusiastic and prompt, the food is spectacular (go for the seafood tower if its a special occasion), the scene is lively and the view of the ocean/beach is unbeatable. Really a great place for dinner/drinks on the water if you are a seafood buff. Thanks Cannonball!

We, three of us, shared the Edamame and the Shishito Peppers. We had the following:
delicious Sake-Ginger Braised Short Rib...Cauliflower, honey roasted japanese eggplant, and local pears. California Rolls, Red Dragon, and the Spicy Tuna.

Robert assisted all of us the other night, and had good suggestions for our meals.

The view was amazing as usual, and my friends from Northern, VA, loved the food, prices, location, and view.
