Great location and view. For the price the food was only acceptable. Ordered the seared Ahi and my wife the fresh sea Bass. They were both cooked well and had good flavor, but. I thing spectacular. The sides were mediocre at best.

Edgewater is in Seaport Village and overlooks the bay. The food is not the reason you go here it’s the view and ambiance. That said our meals were quite good. The blue crab cake appetizer was really very good and our salads were also. Our entree was not outstanding but still enjoyable. Drinks were first rate . The pricing was in line with the location and wine prices quite reasonable. Service was exceptionally good and we were were never rushed. All told a pleasant and relaxing meal with great scenery.

The dinner was a total disappointment from start to finish. The food was poorly prepared and presented. The calamari appetizer was coated in oil and was basically inedible. There were very few calamari rings and mostly tentacles that were fried in old oil. The ahi tuna, which the server described as one of their best dishes, was simply awful. What was supposed to be seared tuna was overcooked, flavorless and dry. The presentation was worse than cafeteria food with half the plate covered in steamed flavorless broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. This didn’t change with the entree as it appeared on everyone’s plate as a cheap filler. The location is perfect on the waterfront, but skip the food and just order a cocktail. The prices were on par with the best restaurants in the area.

The best breakfast we had the entire trip! You could tell our sever was "in the weeds" and we were waiting for out check/drink refills for a while so maybe staff up your sections a bit more, but overall a great experience. Will definitely be going back next time we're in San Diego.

We had a great time celebrating our anniversary last night at Edgewater. Food was delicious. The veggie tacos were amazing. Crabcakes super good. Had a seat right on the water, our waiter was super attentive and even brought us a free dessert for anniversary!!

I made reservations here for Saturday Brunch, celebrating sister's birthday. The host was nice and greeted the whole family, even wished my sister 'Happy Birthday'. Our waitress, Irie was not as friendly, she spent longer time with other tables, there were 3 separate times that I needed to wave my hand to get her attention. She was never apologetic about the number of times she made us wait. I needed to ask the busboy that we were ready to order our food order and if he can let Irie know that. Edgewater was NOT full/busy for a Saturday, so I don't understand why it took her forever to attend our table or did she not care to serve us? The food was cold and didn't taste fresh, very shocking for the price that we paid!! I think we would have been better off eating at our hotel. No one should eat here, unless you want poor customer service, overpriced and bland food.

We were very disappointed with our experience at the Edgewater Grill. The wait staff did not seat us based on our reservation time and we had to wait over 30 minutes. They did not seem to care that we were upset about this, nor did they make any compensation for it. The food that I ordered was undercooked (vegetables), therefore I could eat my meal. The music was also too loud (classic rock???) .Overall we did not have a good experience and would not go back again.

What beats breakfast with a view of the bay?! I had the fruit and yogurt plate and a dirty chai. Both were perfect. Most of the time the fruit you get at a restaurant is subpar but this was fantastic. Lots of fresh fruit paired with vanilla and honey yogurt. Perfect breakfast after a night of indulgence. My husband had the crab Benedict and a pineapple mimosa. He said they were both excellent. I stole a bite of the crab cake with hollandaise sauce and it was great. I LOVE eggs Benedict but this one would have been to rich for me. Service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. We will definitely come back.

This was a disaster! After 1-1/2 hours of waiting for dinner, we were given the wrong food. And then we were told it was our fault by the server. Paid for our drinks and left to find dinner elsewhere.

Great location and our server, Nat was perfect- just the right amount of attentiveness.
The Manhattan clam chowder was a disappointment- way too much potato and hardly any clams. The caprese salad was adequate. I was surprised to see swordfish on the menu- of all the fish in the sea, it’s in the top 4 for mercury content. My husband’s crab soup was tasty and creamy.
We will probably come back just for the service and ambiance.

Server did not bring serving utensils for shared starters. She did not understand why they were needed. When we requested serving spoons for the Brussels sprouts, she said they do not have serving spoons. We needed to specifically say “fork and spoon”. Scallops and sea bass were nicely prepared, although sauce on the sea bass was too heavy. Accompanying brocoflower and carrots were steamed and tasteless. Rice pilaf was adequate. Brussels sprouts starter with balsamic glaze was delicious!
Outdoor patio with bay view was wonderful. Prices were high, but if you dine here, you’re paying for the view and ambiance.

One of my guests and I chose the fish special, which was the grilled Halibut. When presented, the fish was lying on a huge heap of rice and the fish was lathered (far too much) with sauce. The fish was very dry. Tough to comprehend how a “fish” restaurant in San Diego, located on the water, can mess up their fish special!!

On the positive, the ambiance is very nice, the drinks were excellent, as was the Poke appetizer. The four of us still had a nice evening.
