We wanted to love it because the spot and the views are awesome but the food was just eh, it was overpriced and our server wasn't great. She acted like we were putting her out. The guys helping were awesome though. There are lots of restaurants with a view here in SD so I won't be back.

While staying at the Hyatt last week, we dined at the Red Marlin 5 times. (3 dinners and 2 breakfasts).
Each experience was fine. Next time we are in Mission Bay we will definitely dine here again.
We particularly enjoyed not having to drive to a local restaurant for dinner.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary hoping for a quiet romantic setting. However, the bright spotlights over our indoor booth was a bit much so we opted to sit outside. Unfortunately, we were sitting near a 6 top of loud obnoxious business people clearly enjoying too much wine. Shortly after they left a family of 8 sat down, and the kids began to complain right away. In addition, our server filled my wife's wine glass with red wine, but spilled a bit which resulted in red wine dripping on to her white pants when she took her first sip. We notified the waiter, but he appeared unapologetic. On a good note, they did comp us a desert for our anniversary, which was the best part of the meal. Overall, this is a neat location with great views of the marina, but wouldn't choose it for a quiet romantic occasion.

Clam chowder was very good. My glass of wine came with a dozen or so fruit flies. Never had that happen. It put a damper on the whole experience. Food was not very exceptional. Plenty of other restaurants in the area for your money.

We were staying at the Hyatt Regency and celebrating our wedding anniversary with our children. Service was impeccable. Our server Tracie was super friendly, knowledgeable and had such a great personality. Our kids enjoyed the open buffet specifically for kids. Our meal was delicious and service was fantastic. Thanks for a great night!

My friend and I stayed at the Hyatt for a weekend staycation with her daughter. We didn't want to leave the property and I made a reservation for the restaurant. The view of the harbor is great, we sat outside to enjoy the live musician. The musician was great too! Not too loud so you can't have conversations. Restaurant was empty. The food was okay, some dishes were better than other. My girlfriend had the salmon and I had the blackened chicken linguine both were tasty. The cheese plate was AMAZING!!! We ordered a side of shrimp for my friend's daughter that was off menu and that wasn't too great but it as very nice of the staff to make it for us. And they do a kids buffet. That was a huge plus because it was ready to go and kids could eat right away so adults could enjoy conversation and not worry about starving children. Our server was what made the night. They knew we were celebrating my girlfriend's promotion and her about to move out of state for her job. They came over and made mention of that and comp'd our appetizer. Super classy and top notch service.

My wife and I had dinner two times. Thought the second time will be better. We both had fish & chips first night which were very oily and bad flavor. Second night sword fish and octapus salad which were very salty. I requested a replacement which was Ok but the veggies were still salty.

The service was great ( Charlie) but the quality of food was poor and quite lacking along with a very limited selection. The restaurant and hotel are very dated! It could be a great location because of the view. The Hyatt needs to a complete overhaul to this location! All Restaurants, guest rooms, lobby, hallways!

My family was staying at the Bahia resort just on the other side of the bridge. It was short notice on a Friday holiday weekend but we were able to make a reservation, walk over the bay bridge and dine 30 minutes earlier than our 6:30pm reservation. We sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed the well prepared however small proportioned meal. The kids were offered a buffet which made them happy. It was a great overall experience.

We were staying @ the Hyatt & ate dinner at Red Marlin. The food was very good, service friendly and fast, and atmosphere comfortable. It is not inexpensive to dine there, but not overpriced either. Above average food, service & atmosphere for an average price. I’m glad we ate there and would return.

We had a portion of the restaurant set aside specially for us. The service was outstanding and the food was amazing.

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.

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.
