Why we love it

Executive chef: Deborah Scott

Sweeping water views and creative seafood, like everything-crusted ahi and a lobster and fontina BLT, set this bayside charmer apart. Not to mention a shaded patio, complete with heaters and a fireplace, which might be the prettiest outdoor dining space on Harbor Island.

    Great experience in a beautiful setting. Food at lunchtime was great but not mind blowing. Loved that they have round tables that can fit a large group—great for conversation! Beautiful patio setting right on the water.

    My husband took me to this restaurant for my birthday celebration. I strongly recommend making reservations especially if you have a preference. You have a choice of indoor or outdoor. We were seated outdoor with a view of San Diego The food was fresh and made after you place the order and our waitress was kind and professional. I strongly recommend this place and do plan on coming back.

    Food and service were top notch but the restaurant seems a little tired and not the cleanest. Spectacular views but the windows weren’t clean, glass partitions were not clean, baseboards look like they haven’t ever gotten attention. The place needs a discerning eye.

    Beautiful view, the catch of the day was Grouper, it was dry and had to scrape off the spices and hard surface on both sides of the filet. Hubs had the wagyu burger and reported it was divine. Service was fantastic. Cocktails were very good.

    The setting is gorgeous and the food was delicious. The four if us shared 5 dishes for lunch and the servers were very helpful and accommodating. (Lobster Mac and cheese with lobster and butter in the side!) Our server has been at C-Level for 17 years and was amazing.
