    With a severe shellfish allergy, I wasn't sure I'd be able to eat much at Sally's Fish House, but since I'm traveling with a group who wanted to eat there, I decided I'd go and if all I could eat was mashed potatoes, so be it. I was happily surprised with their accommodations for my allergy. Not only was I served an entree (short ribs on polenta) that was delicious, but the chef made sure that each area needed to prepare it had not been contaminated by the many shellfish dishes. I would 10/10 recommend this restaurant.

    Service was great! However is super expensive for that type of food. Menu “cheap” for those prices- burguer $29 come on! Desert $18 and the brownie was frozen. We won’t be back! In addition the validation of the parking in the Hyatt was not working, assistance lady super rude, trying to charge us an extra $28 Careful with that!

    The view from the patio is very nice, overlooking the marina. Furniture on the patio not too comfy for seating. Wait staff are friendly, but service is slow. The seafood tower that is advertised to feed 3-5 people is not as they say. This tower was lucky to feed 2-3 and we are not big eaters. The Thanksgiving meal was mediocre. I would say that if you go to Sally’s you are going for the view and meh food.

    Fish taco was good and the salsa was especially delicious. The rice and beans or barely warm, and the rice was not fresh. In fact, it seem like it had been reheated and was crunchy in some places. I would go back for the ambience though with it being right on the water.. beautiful spot.

    Sally’s was not on our radar until we walked past it the other day. I am so happy we got reservations because this was one of the best places we have had to eat in San Diego. The sea bass and scallops were amazing. We also got a treat from Gwen Stefani performing across the water. Wonderful spot!

    The Paella at Sally's is great. It is a very generous serving that could be shared by 2 or 3 people, perhaps with a side salad. One of our group ordered the Ribeye and was very specific about how he wanted it cooked. Unfortunately, it was overcooked and he described it as 'pot roast'. The waitress did offer to replace it but that would have delayed the meal for everyone else so he declined her offer. In general, a nice place for a meal and some wine, with beautiful views of the marina and sunset.

    Sally’s staff, outdoor seating and food is amazing. All servings are generous and there bread appetizer is the perfect way to start. We sat outside with the dog and she too was taken care of. They have a dog menu who knew there was such a thing. I and my guests highly recommend Sally’s Fish House &Bar.

    So I read the recent so-so reviews, but I was hugely surprised by the cocktails (fancy Bloody Mary’s), the oysters, the grilled octopus, the seafood paella, the surf and turf, the desert (it was our 42nd anniversary), and their care in opening our 1989 Barolo. The best part was the service, followed by the most perfect sunset, which emptied the restaurant. A perfect meal at the perfect place! Highly recommended, and we will be returning!

    The food was fantastic and the service was exemplary. We had a spot right outside the restaurant terrace overlooking the walking path. A wonderful lunch with the ability to people watch was great. This food was better than two other seafood restaurants I went to that evening and the following day. Thank you for a wonderful lunch. I look forward to returning.

    Got there around 5pm. Very slow business wise and service wise. With the amount of people not there, service should have been quicker. I could deal with that if the food was great but it wasn't. Extremely expensive given what I received. Smallest crab cakes ever for $22. I ordered the seafood paella for $65 and it was very bland. Definitely needed salt but of course there was none on the table. Wife ordered the scallops and out of the 4 she only ate 3. Again very bland. Seafood as a whole was cooked to temp very well but the flavor lacked. One app, two entrees, two drinks with tip $227. Not worth half of that.

    Great food, exquisite dessert, good service. Never been to a restaurant that was so unwilling to split a bill, however. They will only take three credit cards and will not take cash. If you have a large group, I'd look elsewhere.

    We ate often at Sally's pre-COVID. Just visited and found their prices to be completely out of line with the type of restaurant this is. Absolutely ridiculous pricing. To add insult to injury, when the check came, it included a 6% surcharge with no explanation. Food was good, service was very good. Until prices and this ridiculous 6% surcharge are in line with market value, we won’t return.
