We had a very good experience. The only downside is that the menu is very limited, but the food provided was very good.

It is a nice ambience. The steak was half the thickness of anywhere else i have tried, but it was tasty. The waitress made inaccurate and inappropriate statements regarding our dining card thinking we don’t know how it works. So we didnt appreciate that.

Went for Mother’s Day. Wendy took good care of us. Salmon, burger and the pot roast/ribs were all tasty. It was very relaxing as we have the view of the harbor/sail boats. Will definitely go back.

Mother's day menu was absolutely too small, must be due to covid supply issues but you weren't informed until you sat down.

Do not go here unless it’s in the evening, or you are staying at that hotel. Went in the early afternoon, there were no tables in the dining room, so they put us in “the lounge” and it was very awkward. Just us at a miniature table and 4 staff hanging out by the bar. No views, limited menu, and nothing but confusion (to include how to get into the restaurant).

Not what I expected. The menu is very limited. The view isn’t what the website portrayed. It’s opposite of the bay to see the sunset

Great waitress, we have been there many times because it’s next to our boat and sometimes too tired to go anywhere else. Food is ALWAYS lacking in quality.

These poor servers! They are doing an amazing job! This restaurant needs to post their extremely limited menu. There are like 7 things to eat. A little misleading but the service is outstanding. Understand they need a limited menu but korean spring rolls, blue cheese salad, and bbq cashews (bar nuts) seems extreme. Maybe some standard apps like a cheese plate, calamari, and ahi poke along with the three salads and some more seafood-centric mains. You have an amazing view of the harbor and sunset, and the drinks were excellent. Just wish there had been some more thought put into the menu and PR since the pricing has not changed. Hopefully, they resolve that soon so this place stays afloat.

The music from the bar was ridiculously loud. We asked if they could close the door between the bar and dining area - 10 minutes a waitress reopens it!! The food was good but it came out cool from the kitchen - there were seven people in the dining area - how can that happen!

Our food was nothing like in the pictures. It tasted like a Sysco special, straight out of the can. Our waitress ma an off-color joke at the beginning of our meal, which soured our experience. This was definitely a one and done restaurant experience.

Had breakfast here last Friday while staying at the Hotel. Very nice inside with views of the Marina. My had the two eggs any style while I had the eggs benedict. Both were very good. The staff are friendly and on point. A little pricey but, that is what you expect for a hotel restaurant.

My girlfriends and I were looking for a new to us restaurant for restaurant week and stumbled up Panorama Bar and Grill. They had a great selection, large portions and everything was delicious! Our server, Cathy was courteous and on-point. Kudos to her for being so attentive!! We all loved this place and decided we would return in the afternoon to truly take advantage of the water view.

I did the dine San Diego menu for restaurant week. The tomato soup was delicious, and the veggies and quinoa wasn’t that good. The server was great. It was too cold to sit outside, but I’m sure the view is beautiful.
