Food and service were fabulous!
The atmosphere was really nice, but the service was horrible and food took very long to get out to the table.
Increíble lugar y deliciosa la comida
Súper recomendable el pato y el sushi
Worst service EVER! we ordered appetizers that came after the entrees, we ordered a roll that simply never came, and they brought raw chicken and just offered to reheat it when we complaint. After the check came the manager was anxious for us to leave but tried to mark even the missing dishes, even though the place is nicely decorated, the restrooms don’t have a baby diaper changing table that they must have as a public place. NEVER coming back, I recommend to avoid this place, mostly because it is really dangerous from them to serve raw chicken that can end on serious health problems.

The food was delicate and fancy ambiance was amazing definite must try
Thank you for the kind words. We are launching Sunday brunches on 4/18. We look forward to having you join us again.
Simply outstanding. The best meal we've had in quite a long time. Service is knowledgeable, kitchen is on point. Had king salmon sashimi, duck tostada, beef skewers, scallops and a sushi roll. Breathtaking.
The food was terrible and incredibly overpriced! The only good thing was the rock shrimp.
Thank you for sharing, our sincere apologies. I have shared your feedback with our culinary team. Please feel free to reach out to me directly, as we value all guests feedback; Joshua Liberman (916) 337-1611
I lived everything about it except how my tab ended up at $82 without barely having eaten anything.
Jessica is amazing! Best server I’ve ever had in San Diego. Will be coming back again and again. Ambience + Service + Amazing Food + Amazing Drinks.
You can’t beat it!
First time dining here. The food was absolutely amazing. My favorite was the rock shrimp. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant itself was such a cute vibe to be in with lit candles on a rainy day. I’ll definitely be returning!
Thank you for taking the time to share your dinner experience with us. We look forward to having you join us again.
The staff were polite and accommodating. Cozy and beautiful interior dining. Oysters and cocktails for happy hour was a highlight. The fresh sushi and savory duck were my favorite dishes.
Love Lionfish but my experience was not that great this time around. I was on a date and excited to bring him here but when we arrived we were sat in the far left corner outside on the street patio. It was freezing and I expressed to the hostess and my server if we could be moved to a warmer seat but nothing was done. My nose was running the whole time and I was frozen. Probably will not be going back even though the food is great.
Delicious. One of the best meals I have had in a long time.
Fabulous food and people.
Our waiter was not the most attentive. Will not return
A bit pricey, but delicious food and great service!
Heaters desperately need to be added. The ones that they had were only for show and were not giving off any heat. It was pretty miserable trying to enjoy dinner in 45 degree weather
Our date night
It took 30-40 minutes everytime we ordered a food or cocktail. Terrible experience
It was my birthday and it felt so special! Even on a busy weekend, thank you!!
Amazing food and drinks! Would recommend to a friend!
Food was amazing
Service was more than amazing
I would consider returning if we could sit in the covered "outdoor" dining space. The price was too high to sit in the middle of the street. For the price charged for the food, I would want to experience the ambience of the venue. And it was cold. Not enough heaters. In downtown, in the winter, you really need 1 heater per table with how far apart the tables are spaced for social distancing.
With that said, the food was good. I would not order the Crudo though again, we spit that out. The lobster was amazing. Though the portion offered for the price charged was not a good value. Squash soup was really good. And the carrot tequila cocktail was creative and amazing.
Service was outstanding and the manager here, was notably fantastic.
I wish I knew we were seating on the road tables I requested height tops. The road tables were too cold.
Restaurant had tables inside and patio with high tops open around more heaters.
We waited a long time to get our ordered entered we got waters and never saw the waiter had to stand up and go find him. The entire meal the waiter apologized how long our meal was etc.
It’s unfortunate that having two managers no one even cared to come talk to us.
Even when we left there was not even a thank you as the suites gentlemen walked by us.
Food was fantastic. Definitely recommend the octopus appetizer and the tiramisu for dessert. Our server was very nice as well.
Food and service was fantastic. Not overly priced either. Tough to comment on venue, as they are doing there best with Covid situation. Having said, they have done a great job considering the circumstances.
Beautiful restaurant and the most delicious food rock shrimp and sashimi and duck tostadas were Amazing!!
Really nice dinner experience for my wife’s birthday while we were doing a staycation in downtown SD. Food was perfect. They have implemented outdoor dining really well. Our waitress was excellent.
Had an excellent dinner at Lionfish. Food and service were excellent and also great Covid safety guidelines.
Food was ok, nothing great
The food took over an hour to arrive to the table. My pork chop was a bit dry, cold, and tasted more like duck than pork.
Always a great experience - amazing food, beverages and ambiance.
The food and atmosphere were great can't wait to return after coivd I believe the experience will be even better.
It was V-Day weekend when I booked my reservation. I heard so many good things about this restaurant and always wanted to try it. unfortunately we didn't have a good experience with the service and the food! we sat there for 1 hour and no one came to take our order; then, after such a long time waiting for the food when we finally received our first hot dish for appetizer (grilled octopus) it was cold and not tasty at all. To be fare we spoke with the manager and he didn't charge us for anything, however we decided to leave and didn't order dinner. Overall for such a famous restaurant, it wasn't a pleasant experience.
AJ was a great sever and he made our experience memorable. He was genuine and gave great recommendations! Thank you for a fun evening! The GM JD at the pool deck was fabulous and we look forward to our upcoming birthday celebration.
Great happy hour options, amazing service by Stephen, and high quality ingredients. Music was upbeat and the staff did a great job creating a lively and safe atmosphere outside.
Carly our server was amazing! I felt silly asking for a box for our side of potatoes. She asked if she could take anything and I said I’d like a box for the potatoes, that I was going to use them for breakfast in the am, and she exclaimed “perfect!” It was so sweet and refreshing.
It was the last night before the new three week shut down and we were outside and cold but it was all fine! We had a lovely dinner just didn’t dress correctly for December! Good luck to everyone getting through this!
Very accommodating and great food and service.
Delicious food and cocktails!
