The scene was nice for people watching. Right on the harbor. Beautiful view! The food was about what you would expect: OK. Ordered grilled octopus. Received barely warm. Asked if that was how it was supposed to be served, and they tried, again. Same result. Oh well. Fish taco was fine.

Love the food & the view, but the service isn’t as impressive. Our server Jenn wasn’t very attentive, kept having to look for her when I needed something or ask someone else, and the busser Gabriel wasn’t very happy or friendly either. Kind of disappointed with their customer service experience.

It was cool outside and cold inside, due to excessive air conditioning, which did not change when we complained. The food was just OK, the fish had to be sent back to be cooked as requested. The wine list and the wines we chose were fine.

It was a pretty good lunch, but not as great as I would have expected for the money and reputation. Has potential for a great view, unless you are placed at a table towards the back of the patio, closer to the exit than the waterfront like I was.

Our longtime server, Francisco, always ensures a great dining experience.

We always try to bring family from the east coast here-they are never disappointed.

Considering the 5 star location, food prices are reasonable.

On a recent visit to San Diego this was one of our "had to get to" restaurants. However, we were disappointed with the oysters as they were very creamy and the taste was not appetizing. Although the main meal of filet mignon and lobster was better. It did seem that some of the vibe from prior visits was missing but that could be said for the whole of Seaport Village. Our server was prompt and attentive but we just couldn't get over that first impression of the oysters. Unfortunately, as one of our favorite places to dine I couldn't recommend to friends or family.

Great food - highly recommend the sea bass with linguine & mushrooms! Oysters with soy & wasabi were a new taste sensation for me and the deconstructed cheesecake was a nice finish. Also good wines by the glass. Ate here twice in one week - service & food were consistently good.

The food and view were just perfect. I had the sea bass fish and chips and I must say the best fish and chips I have ever had!! We brought our dogs and and sat on the patio with the beautiful view. The doggie menu was a hit with our dogs and at other restaurants our dogs did not like the food. They gobbled this up (chicken salmon and rice). Great dining experience.

This place was great, but the very weird, somewhat loud, spacey-techno-euro-hybrid “music” coming from all of the outdoor speakers was very distracting and detracted from what otherwise would have been an over-all 4 star rating. Out door seating and lounge areas were great, not to mention the food! I personally would not go back though, because the “music” was so strange, loud and annoying.

We wanted a waterfront experience with a menu that could please a 14 year old and adults. We opted for a few apps (buffalo style cauliflower was our favorite item) and sushi. Service was great. Our server was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Loved the personable service.

Quite pricey but the food was really good and the location is great. The service was also strong. We sat on the patio with our two dogs. Loved the sea bass dish. Crab cakes and the shrimp cocktail were also very good. The sushi roll was fine, I can’t remember which one we got. And best of all, they have a dog menu! The pups were very happy with their meal.
