Sat outside (lovely) with customers and made mention in my reservation 'we needed to hurry a bit'. Sally's acknowledged that ask when we checked in; threw additional staff at our table and were so accommodating! The food is really, really tasty as well. Sally's has glass about chest high around the outside seating which cuts down the wind, (can be chilly in San Diego), and made the sunshine so enjoyable.

A fish house is is not usually very special in San Diego but Sally's is a great one. Lovely food with great service. Scallops, salmon, paella and more, done with excellence. The two critics I have is the noise level and the lobster. I spent an ordinary amount of time fishing the meat out of the lobster shells with my bare hands. By the time I was done my guests had finished more than half of their meals. A hard surface restaurant is still the norm for easy maintenance and a very loud atmosphere. Great Spanish white wine was the perfect complement to the meal.

I took my wife and daughter out for Valentines Day dinner. The staff was extremely courteous and so very personable. We ordered the Seafood Platter, which was outstanding and very generous. My daughter had the children’s filet mignon and I was beyond impressed with the size, cut and taste. Define global a place we will go again in the near future.

When we arrived and we had a reservation - I explained to the front we were having a big celebration taking the bride out to dinner!
We just arrived from a six hour flight and were thrilled to be celebrating. No smiles or personality by staff. Nothing.

We had booked this beautiful restaurant with a gorgeous view of the harbor and they took us to a back room and seated us in the most unattractive space.

I walked back out to the front and asked if there was any way we could sit in the front dining room - a different hostess said of course we can make that work. We were relocated to a much nicer table. The main dining room was never filled to capacity when we were there.

Favorite Food we ordered: cauliflower
Scallops and sea bass

Disappointing Food: shrimp cocktail & paella,

Service was average - occasionally had to wave my arm to get his attention.

There were plenty of tables open in the big beautiful room that looked out over the harbor.

Beautiful place - not really customer focused -

Good filet, but everything else we ordered was between okay and terrible. The cheese on the cheese board was truly sad. Making it worse, our waitress was just plain absent, and the few times she finally came by, she obviously wasn't interested. This is really too bad. We used to love Sally's.

Located on the harbor side of the Hyatt adjacent to the Boardwalk, fun location to people watch and enjoy some well prepared, nicely presented food. With a menu featuring fish, the sea bass was very tasty and enjoyable along with the swordfish. Both meals were served piping hot and in a timely manner. Tad bit on the pricey side but would dine there again next time in town.

The food was good, but not quite as great as other reviewers seem to think. Still worth going, excellent friendly waiter, wonderful location, outdoors is fun and indoors is very nice. If you're staying at the hotel definately go, but if you're just hanging around the San Diego area....go anyway!

The bar was nice and modern. We ordered the towered and it took probably 20-25min to get our food. It was placed on ice. I think they had to wait for our food to thaw because the crab leg was still frozen when I took a bite. The lobster was a little over cooked but the oysters were pretty good.
