    The setting is the charming part of this restaurant overlooking the San Diego Bay. The wait staff were top notch and our food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our beet salad was filled with adequate chunks of beets and flavorful dressed greens. The flavor of the roasted salmon was perfect but the purple roasted carrots were still hard and difficult to cut. We tried the sun chokes as a side vegetable and they were tasty. of course the key lime panda cotta with white chocolate was superb. We all bought fresh fish from the showcase on the main floor. The huge shrimp were the best flavor and the salmon cooked up nicely at home. This is a destination restaurant for our San Diego visits.

    Had dinner with a friend and ate at the counter near the grill. Always a great treat to see how your food is actually prepared. Austin was running the grill and served us up some sample apps that were great. Followed that with Crab Cakes and Scallops. So buttery and cooked to perfection. Always great service and friendly staff.

    The crab cake appetizer was amazing. It must be 100% crab. The sauces were so yummy. Mains ere sea bass and it was cooked perfectly. So moist and flavourful. Excellent wine list and the waitress recommended a beautiful chardonnay from Russian River. Service was quite good. Great views.

    I dined here with my gentleman caller, my twin and her husband. So fun! My twin and I were celebrating our birthday and this place was perfect! The food is terrific and varied. Equally important, the staff are warm and professional. Sure the place is a bit spendy, but for most people it's an ideal place to celebrate, and enjoy the view!

    The restaurant was excellent (food and service). The only issue was across the way on The Midway Carrier. They have the Bob Hope 2 min video with recorded applause that plays over and over that is incredibly annoying. That should be addressed ASAP for the outdoor enjoyment of all in the direct area.

    My wife and I went here for Valentine’s Day. The food was excellent and the service top notch. The only downside was biting down on a lobster shell in one of the dishes. The management promptly apologized and offered to comp some of the meal. I’m very satisfied with the experience.

    We were very fortunate that the waitstaff seated us next to the window - fantastic views. Although the service started out a little slow, they more than made up for it as the evening passed. Wonderfully prepared food and served very hot. We very much enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend to anyone.
