    Service was amazing. The food was delicious. We had pizza and burgers, both really good. The drinks were great as well. The view of the bay on the patio and fireplaces really made the atmosphere incredible.

    Had a 9:15 am reservation for the Upper Terrace, arrived at 9:10 am, and was seated right away, but not in the Upper Terrace. A server came within 5 minutes and took our drink order but did not give me a name. Another server came to take the order and again did not give a name. While waiting for the meal, a server came and poured the coffee that had been left on the table. That seemed kind of weird as he did not ask but just did it. Breakfast arrived in a reasonable time frame and was good. The server forgot the white toast, and when it did arrive, it was so hard that it was not edible. I had to wait until he came around again to tell him and ask for white bread. The white bread arrived in about 10 minutes, and I was almost finished with my meal. Service again was lacking as my table was not checked on, and our drinks did not get refilled until the end when I asked for the check.

    Check in good, arrived 14 minutes early and seated right away. Offered water after seated, no name given. Drinks arrived and ordered about 10 minutes of being there. At 7:56 still no food nor anyone checking on us. The table next to us that arrived after we did has already finished their first course. Our server walked by for the fourth time at 8:05 and said nothing, we even tried to get his attention. At 8:13 our dinner finally arrived via another server still not seeing ours and still no drink refills. One meal of a Burger had soggy bottom bun and fries luck warm. At 8:16our server asked my guest about a drink refill but did not ask me, just walked away. At 8:29 our server looked across the room at us and still nothing, I even waved at him. 8:32 another server cleared our table, still no original server. My drink has been sitting almost empty now for awhile. 8:34 our server finally came back again and asked about dessert menu, we said no and before I could ask about a drink he was gone. Our server spent the majority of his time across the room at the table of a slender female with a white top that had cutouts in various locations.

    A subpar hotel restaurant experience. Loud outdoor experience with poor event/kitchen restaurant balance, waited over 45-1h for meal due to a slammed chicken working on an event catering order (they did the right thing and comped our drinks for the wait which was approached) we had to move inside to escape the hectic outdoor dinning area. server was nice but not personable. Conflicting event DJ/live music noise outside. I felt bad for the live performer who was trying to sing over the other event happening at the same time. Lots of small children and separate party events grouped together. No thought put into special occasion seating and event noise made for a very hectic evening at a spot you’d imagine to be very relaxed. Nice grounds/facilities just very poor scheduling of events/seating and music.

    The outdoor patios are wonderful! Beautiful views of the bay and sunset. The food was also very good. I got the halibut, which was very tasty snd husband got the pork chop which was huge! He ate it all! Service was also really good so overall it was the best meal experience we had in San Diego over a holiday weekend! Would highly recommend for a well deserved special dinner.

    Beautiful spot but the food we had was average. Pork lollipops were tough, Brussels sprouts had no flavor and the pork pappardelle was also bland. Service slow- the waiter apologized for the wait and we weren’t really in a hurry. Minimal wine selections. Salads were very good, but huge. Totally shareable and would be good if we had been told because it’s wasteful to throw half a salad away. The ambience is great though. Might just have been our experience on a night we were both travel weary.

    Food was under par, and barely edible. Oysters were warm/not fresh at all, charred octopus had no flavor and had no char (felt like it was microwaved), miso halibut was over cooked and dry. Parpadelle was good, but nothing special (i was supposed to have ciopino but quickly switched to non-seafood after the apps). Super disappointed by the food, but the sunset view here was pretty great. Service was good too. Would never dine here again due to poor food quality, nor recommend this place to anyone for any type of meal.

    Costly food which was ok. Expected more but the chef puts too much sauce and dressing on everything. The salmon I had was so well done with crispy skin. I’d go again but would ask for dressing on side.

    Another wonderful evening at Covewood! However, they were understaffed, which was disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber. The servers were fantastic, but were hustling so much to keep up with the number of patrons. It's really unfortunate to have something beyond their control lower the quality of the overall experience. Halibut was amazing & prepared perfectly. Will be back post summer. Fabulous somewhat undiscovered waterfront dining venue with front row seats for the Sea World fireworks. Fabulous food quality & presentation too. They just need more staff. When you're paying for this price point, the service should be equally complementary.

    This restaurant and surrounding grounds of the hotel are beautiful with great views of the bay - truly a lovely setting. Our review is mixed because the scallops and halibut were cooked perfectly, and very good. However, my husband's roast chicken was so over cooked and tough, it was inedible, as were the undercooked accompanying vegetables. The Caesar salad was probably the best we have ever tasted. Promptly after being seated we were asked for our cocktail orders. We brought a bottle of sparkling wine that needed to be opened and put on ice. It was opened immediately, however the bucket and flutes did not follow. So, 20 minutes later a member of our party went to inquire. There was an apology and the glasses appeared a short time later. We were then asked if we'd like to order appetizers and we indicated we would like to order salads. Our order was not taken and the waiter was not seen again for several minutes. To be fair, we were comped my husband's meal and 2 desserts. We're not sure we would try Covewood again, but that's a shame, because it was such a great setting. Maybe we were there on an off night.

    Took almost 1 hour to receive food from time of ordering. Realllllly wanted to like this place but food was just not good. Aside from time it took to receive, charred octopus was not charred at all, caramelized brussel sprouts were not caramelized & were super chewy (they tasted so weird I had to send them back and I never send stuff back), the only good thing we received was the marsala. Even the truffle fries were chewy and odd. I understand restaurants are understaffed but for how much you’re paying, it wasn’t worth the money unfortunately. Ambiance and view of sunset is amazing though.

    Covewood consistently has tasty food. I’ve had lunch there a few times and this was my first dinner experience. Unfortunately the service and the delivery of dinner was slow and it made eating our dinner feel rushed as we had to get to a show. I love the outdoor seating especially if you can get seats near the bay. It was a beautiful Friday. I requested this seating but did not get it.
