    Not the fault of the server, but cost of everything, considering its just outside fare, is extraordinarily expensive. The clam chowder was good, the hamburger terrible… Overcooked with very few accoutrements. It was like eating a hockey puck. Had to give up eating the mushroom ravioli. Very dry. set us back over $100, but was barely worth 30. We ate here about six years ago and it was terrific. Do not know what has happened. It is nice to be able to sit outside and see the water.

    This was a great place to spend an evening, and even pretty good food, but it felt over-priced for the quality. Just my opinion. Some people wouldn't think so.

    Recent trip to San Diego and stayed locally near Seaport Village. No problem being seated on time for the reservation but day in the most congested space on the patio with the most challenging view. Not surprised the party before us turned down the table after walking to it. Oddly placed with maybe 18inches of space between the two adjacent tables and a partial harbor view from one seat despite being outside. In hindsight should have declined the table as well. Warning, extremely limited menu currently. Two salads, one soup, a few apps and a few mains. Kids menu has four options, all $14 regardless of choice. Ordered an app and two salads, two kids meals and one drink. About $150 after tip. Put kids order in first and received their food easily 20 min after the salads had already come out and 10 min after the app. Yes the app came out after salads and the kids meals which were placed first arrived last. Service was polite but I did ask several times for our server to check on the food. If I returned anytime soon it would be to enjoy a nice cocktail on the patio closest to the harbor. They make a well prepared drink and the view if you can get it is great. I would probably wait on returning for another chance on dinner until they sort the menu out again and between 6p and 7p seemed to be a challenging time for the kitchen and servers on a Friday so maybe something earlier.

    The service and ambience, definitely 5 stars. The value for the food, not so! We ordered the seafood tower(small), not worth 1/2 the price. Seafood seems to have been frozen too long, specially the lobster tail, would not come off the shell. The crab claw was tasteless, actually tasted like rubber. I am a shell fish fanatic and this is not the place for fresh seafood, at least that’s what I tasted. The oyster were the best thing on the seafood platter. The Paella was very tasteful but again, the lobster tail would not come off the shell, meaning it had been frozen too long. The Paella was the best part of my meal. If, we return to Sally’s Fish House, we are sure to order the Paella.

    For us, the hostess came across very cold and unfriendly. Once we were seated it took an unusually long time before a server came to our table and I thought the menu selections were a bit sparse. That said, the food was good!

    Honestly this special lave has stolen my heart! It’s now my #1 fav eatery in San Diego. I brought my puppy and sat outside overlooking the boardwalk and had a slice of Heaven. My lobster roll and shrimp cocktail were superior and my server was so patient with me as I posted up for two hours reading and eating and enjoying the view! This place will steal your heart and restore your mind!

    Very limited dinner menu. How does a fish place not offer a basic fish and chips on a dinner menu? Forcing customers to pay only by card is unreasonable. Food was just ok, but we will definitely not return.

    Food and service not bad. However it was too expensive for what we got. Even with out the 6% percent surcharge to off set minimum wage increases. (Printed right on the receipt). This restaurant is part of the Hyatt Hotel, we went to another restaurant less than a mile away with out a surcharge. $26 for burger and fries. $18 and $20 for two drinks. $20 for 6 shrimps in a cocktail. Plus tax, surcharge and tip. Over $100 for two people. Again the food and service were not bad, I just cannot recommend this place due to the high cost. I understand inflation and wage increases for hotel workers. But if you want more value for your buck I would recommend trying another restaurant. Maybe one that is not attached to a hotel.

    Sally’s is a great place to experience San Diego. Right on the “boardwalk”, our table on the patio gave us an excellent place to people-watch while enjoying our meal. The food was very good (except my sea bass was a bit “gamely” and a very small piece, so I was not terribly impressed. With a fresher piece of fish, however, the meal would have been excellent. And if you are a polenta aficionado, try it. It will feed four, too.
