Nice place and ambiance. Near a Marina is always great.
Arrived on time and there were plenty of seats available. Had a good one close to the window with good view.
Lunch menu very limited. Basically 4 sort of sandwiches.
Not nice taste. Overpriced for the meal.
Great evening sitting by the fire enjoying a delicious cup of clam chowder & a glass of wine (Franciscan Chardonnay) .... great recommendation Ron! :-)
The food was delicious, and the service was exceptional. Frank took excellent care of us.
Limited choices on menu, spent about $40 each, had salad split in 1/2, 2 entrees and no drinks nor dessert.
Had the swordfish, very nice. The view can't be beat.
Food was really good but a bit over priced for the quality. Restaurant itself was a little run down as well. Our server was not the friendliest and we felt rushed. Otherwise it had great views of the bay.
Took my wife for dinner on her Bday. Everything was very nicely done. Kudos to Shane for great great service.
Waiter was rude and had an "attitude". Obviously didn't like our group and didn't even offer desserts or coffee just brought the bill. Also we had to request bread.
We were a group of 9 professionals incidentally.
Very nice restaurant with good food, service and ambiance!
Excellent as usual with master chef Mark and All the special servers and Best busses in the business!
There were only a few menu choices and it was way over priced. The food was disgusting. It was barely warm and we were only 2 of 10 people in there. It was our first new years eve together so it was supposed to be special.. It was awful.
Red marlin will jump into your life if you give it a chance. The food via Mark the chef is excellent and he is happy to accommodate your every need to fulfill and fill you properly.
The rest of the crew (except Shane)are the the best in the business and they treat you like family, which when you become a regular you will be.
It is just a great getaway with mellow music and amazing views wiling their half round seating areas with floor to 12 foot ceiling windows over looking all the action of the marinas and the main entrance channel to mission bay keeps you occupied. Friendly, and fantastically fine food forum is the The Red Marlin summed up.
Excellent, go for the experience, the view, watch boats enter the harbor, staff is very friendly, and hospitable, food is excellent. Worth every penny, great getaway Alone.
Fun and fabulous as always! Great wait staff, delicious food and lovely setting!
Lights are too bright and distract fro potentially nice atmosphere
These people are the best, all servers except Shane, all bussers, and chef Mark are excellent one of kind restaurant service and friendliness!
subpar holiday buffet for 50 per head. they would have had more people if food was any good. They have a great location. would never go again. everything tasted like from a can, underseasoned or from a box - not fresh tasting.
Great patio! Service could be better. Be sure to reserve the S'mores Kit in advance.
Terrific as always! Food beautifully presented and delicious! Service---over the top wonderful!
Excellent as usual. All crew very congenial and friendly except Shane
We had dinner there on November 4th. The food was ok, the waiter tried to argue with us when we ordered things cooked the way WE liked them. My husband got the yellowtail and it was undercooked and very fishy. He did not eat it. My steak was too rare and I asked for medium well but the waiter said that it would not be good. My daughter got the shrimp and it was good. Salads were great. Overall, we were disappointed in the service and the waiter arguing with us about how we wanted our food cooked. We live nearby and go there a lot and it is usually very good.
First of all the restaurant is design poorly with the patio tables sitting in the back facing the hotel rather than looking out at the ocean. The octopus was in edible the brussels sprouts were quite good the chowder was good but so incredibly happy with cream that it made us nearly ill. It's overpriced so I would not recommend it
Our meal was cooked to perfection.
Were in San Diego for business, and my wife's birthday happened to occur during the trip. A friend recommended this place. Was a bit concerned that often times a restaurant on the premises of a hotel or resort is not as good as a stand-alone. Need not have worried. Had a tremendous meal, and the service was attentive and friendly. Awesome meal and experience.
The waiter surprised us with a anniversary dessert which we really appreciated. The ambiance was romantic.
Dont miss the opportunity to be spoiled by the exqusite staff here. There are a few that stand out of course, find their section or request them, they are the best i have ever had and i am 60 years old. Frank is very friendly intelligent and informative. He wil spend some time with you for casual talk, and is very congenial. A great comfort to have someone with this type of attitude in this industry this day in age. Raul is the same, really gracious helpful and friendly. Charlie is a good man, willing to help with anything you may need. Ali is a bus boy that is incredible, he hustles better than any other bus boy i have seen, and he is willing to help and comunicate with a very respectful attitude to the fullest extent You can imagine. Mark is an amazing chef who will cater to your every need. They will most definetely make you happy. Of course there always seems to be one that is not sso helpful or friendly, try to avoid Shawn at all costs. Otherwise the combined atmosphere of great hospitality, excellent view of boats transitting the channel and harbor right in front of you through panoramic angled 8 foot high windows, boats and harbor on one side, channel and boats and sunset on the other, and a great outdoor dining area with fire pits, make this a real gem. Dont miss out on the 2 1/2" scallops flown daily from the east coast, and the chowder that rates as good or better than most. Enjoy San Diego's finest overall dining! Take care...
Chowder , waiters, ambience, view bussers, hostess, are all excellent!
We ate at the Red Marlin two consecutive nights for dinner. The first night we had cioppino that was tasteless and watery. The second night we had yellowtail that was over cooked and dried out and clam chowder that was too spicy.
We come here every year at the same time for our annual convention and this is the first year that we were very disappointed with the quality of the food!
VERY limited menu completely different from online menu including prices which were much higher at restaurant and open table said 1st reservation was 7:30, but obviously anytime bc no one was in restaurant , the potential is there with location and ambience but they've missed their mark with menu and pricing
We enjoyed a Great server, excellent food and a beautiful venue!!
These guys are unbeatable!
I am aSan Diego native and I try to go in at least once a week, they make me feel like family!
Best overall restaurant in San Diego for food, service, ambience, scenic view.
Food and service was great! We're staying at the Hyatt and didn't want to go far for dinner.
Everything was outstanding!
Just weird. The whole thing was weird. Kids buffet was decent value but the food was over cooked and limited selection. The adult food was ok but extremely overpriced. The waiter was nice but robot-like in his work. There were few other diners in this massive space (even though the hotel was packed) and the restaurant experience was just odd and lacking in any atmosphere.
Raul and Ali both served up a great meal as usual from Mark. Mark the chef is second to none as well as Raul and Ali. Very couteous, consciencous , and concerned about all they do. The view is excellent, with the fishing boats going by, and the sunset view over the water.
Great restaurant, ambiance, food, view!. Service could have been better.
We call this our hidden gem. We just happened upon it a few years back on a bike ride. Love to sit on patio for lunch and enjoy the quiet relaxed setting. The food is always good and have always had great service.
Informed it was my wife's birthday in th app but they didn't notice that information
We stayed at the Hyattand wanted an easy dinner after a beach day. We read the reviews and did not have high expectations but the food we ordered was delicious. Both my husband and I ordered the clam chowder and a salad. The So-Cal Caesar was delicious. My husband ordered a different one and enjoyed his. The kids buffet offered a good selection for our kids and the pricing was fair (pay your age). We enjoyed watching th boats on the marina and saw a bit of the sunset before the clouds rolled in.
Had an awesome time sitting out on the patio and enjoying live acoustic music performed by a lovely young lady. The wait staff and management were both attentive and hospitable! I enjoyed the surf and turf as my entree (pricy, but well worth it!) and lump blue crab cakes! (Amazing). If you happen to be in the Mission Bay Area, do yourself a favor and stop by and treat yourself (and your friends/family) to a tasteful and aesthetically pleasing meal! Will definitely be back!
