The food was excellent, the cocktails were amazing and the service was awesome. I highly recommend going. We intend to go back again soon.
New restaurant, few weeks in. The service was the best part, everyone goes out of their way to make sure you are taken care of . Beautiful handcrafted drinks. The food however lacked flavor, particularly my sea bass dish. I’m sure they’ll get it right as they continue.
Our fish was excellent.
This newcomer to the 5th Avenue restaurant scene certainly demonstrates its pedigree as the latest offering from the San Diego Dining Group. The nautical theme is catchy, but it's the fresh caught fish displayed beautifully on ice that rule. The thing about fish is not to overdo it and the team at Saltwater understand how to accentuate the fresh flavor of the daily catch. Saltwater also prepares tasty starters, great for sharing, and presents a notable wine menu. The service was attentive and the beignets for dessert were the bomb. We're from out of town and we hope that when we return to San Diego and Saltwater we can still get in.
Wait staff good
New to Downtown San Diego, Saltwater has an interesting menu, food that is right up there with Oceanair, Salley's, and Searsucker. The atmosphere was enjoyable. The port holes were a whimsical tough. The waitstaff did a good job of meeting our needs. They honored our reservation with no wait time. We would definitely go back again.
This was the overall worst dining experience I have had in years.
Hottest place in downtown, place is amazing. Service is top notch. Food is incredible, definitely try crab cakes, oyster gratin and short rib gnocchi. We had a whole fish from their beautiful display. Will return soon
All I can say is BRAVO! Best new restaurant in San Diego! Can’t wait to come back and try all of their menu! The Fish Display is a MUST order
It was a little bright in the dining area for a fine dining restaurant. Would suggest the
