Second time eating here on a trip to San Diego and both times the fish specials were very tasty, the flavor surprised me. Dessert was another pleasant surprise-a chocolate sphere with hot fudge poured on it table-side revealing ice cream in the middle as the sphere melts. A very decadent as well!

The cocktail I had - fig and soda - was superb! The sea bass was cooked so perfectly that my brain was interpreting the yumminess as if I was eating a steak. Server was friendly and attentive. What a delightful evening!

Overpriced tourist trap - and not even trying to appear as anything but. Stay away from meat appetizers: meat skewers = grizzle skewers. If you mush go eat there for whatever reason, do sushi rolls and such.

Have always loved this restaurant but this visit was not the best. Took long time for drinks, had ordered two glasses of champagne and hey did not come with their usual strawberry garnish. Also the server completely forgot to put in one of the entree orders so one of 4 didn't get their food on time. They were apologetic but it was still very awkward for here people to eat while he other waited.

Not good. Had to fight setting sun on the patio while tables in the shade were empty. Tables are very close and we were constantly bombarded by overly loud group at the next table. Other empty tables were available so why wee were seated next to the noisy group is a mystery.
Ordered fish and chips which were very good, but the menu I was given listed the price as $19 however the bill came at $27. Was told I was accidentally given the wrong menu and would not adjust the price.

Service was terrible. I was either completely ignored by the waitstaff or virtually dismissed by the hostess. The food was fantastic, but the service was deplorable. Given the high prices, just serving great food is not enough.

I was in San Diego for business and l was looking for a restaurant on site for a quick dinner with my husband. The reviews for Sally's were very good so we decided to give it a try. We were exceptionally happy. My husband being a sushi lover was very impressed and informed me that the sushi he picked for dinner was literally some of the best he had ever tasted! Overall it was a great meal with wonderful atmosphere.

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.
