Set in what was a private beach house in the 60s, Tidal’s mid-century modern design draws from the era it was built by Hollywood producer Jack Skirball. A fire pit-dotted deck, communal tables, and cozy lounge beckon casual group gatherings and lively conversation — though the 180° views of Mission Bay might just leave you at a loss for words.

Amazing food and excellent service at Tidal. Landon was our server and he went above and beyond to ensure that every part of our meal was perfect. Their entire staff was helpful and welcoming and really helped to make our experience memorable.
It took a while for our server to find us after we were seated, but she made up for it. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. The octopus appetizer was delicious, tender and flavorful. We ordered the scallops and a mahi-mahi special. The scallops could have been hotter, but the flavor was so good I got over it. The mahi was a bit rare for my taste, but it was very fresh and the foraged mushroom side was fantastic. This is definitely a go-to for special occasions and out-of-town guests.
Ordered two tomahawk steaks and only one was available. Waited over 35 minutes for dinner to be served and both tomahawk steak and pork port House were under cooked
Our waiter was amazing and the food was very good. Our view was so beautiful and they kept us warm by seating us near the heaters.
The beef cheek was amazing! Great service with a view.
Great location and waterfront views. I think they want to testify the high price by the presentation. Everything came out looking terrific. But unfortunately that's where it ends. The food was mediocre at best. We started with a coconut starter that had no flavor other than coconut. We let the salmon that was overcooked and salty. Everything was smothered in a flavorless cream sauce. In addition to the pear salad with giant candied Ginger. Again, it was good for presentation but lousy for eating. We ended up cutting the ginger in about 30 pieces and mixing them into the salad. The salad dressing was tart and really didn't go well with the type of salad. Left feeling like we got set up thinking Gourmet dining when the food was less than mediocre.
Really creative Pacific Island cuisine designed by the executive chef (who is Guamanian). The food was very nicely prepared and the waterfront patio dining was lovely. Decent, but not killer, wine list. A really excellent dining experience, albeit a bit expensive. Call it a splurge.
Excellent in so many ways. The perfect date night for a romantic celebration. We sat by the water and were offered heat lamps AND blankets. The chef's choice was amazing. I have been recommending it to strangers and friends alike.
I had a magical time for my birthday.
Everything was espectacular, the bartender was amazing host.
The only thing that it didn’t work. It was that I wasn’t told that for the happy hour only you can be inside in the bar.
Even though I was having dinner and spent 6 hours with 20 friends they showed up kinda 2 shift. One for happy hour and others for dinner.
Other than that it is so awesome place to be.
We went to tidal with some friends are loved the view and the food! I would definitely recommend! There were so many things on the menu that I still want to try. I’m going to have to go back.
We were in town on a work conference and chose Tidal for our date night. It was a wonderful experience. Our waiter Brent was fabulous and so welcoming and kind. The food was absolutely fabulous and the wine was great. It was the perfect date night spot and if we make it back to San Diego, it would absolutely be a place we would visit again.
Excellent food and service would order any of the entrées that we had would be worth it to just go there for one of them .
Diver scallops. Hard to find. Amazing stuff. Staff was laid back and chatty even tho it looked and tasted like fine dining it is but I wore jeans and it was fine. There are little friends in the bay who
Pop up... amazing spot
Hawaiian style menu with a gourmet touch. Great service and lovely water view. Outdoor deck is
wonderful for seating and enjoying the view. Most tables are well protected from too much sun with large umbrellas. Excellent and enthusiastic service. Large portions...much could be shared! Prices are reasonable and weekend brunch is a menu choice not a buffet. Excellent coffee. Nice to walk the pier and look at the fish in the lagoon (including sharks!) afterward. Easy parking.
Hostess all ready for us, with only 45" notice per Iphone! Seated at PERFECT table with view of the water. Outdoor heaters and plexiglass protected us from cold and wind, but we loved watching the sunset and a heron standing on the beach. The stuffed trout was to die for! I will always remember this romantic evening.
Excellent service from Taylor and Kennedy. Taylor was knowledgeable and helpful in helping me decide what fish to order and he was spot on! Can’t wait to come back and try his other suggestions!
My wife and I love this place! Our first visit was last Friday for San Diego restaurant week. Since then we have returned for our new Friday dinner spot! We tried things here we would never dream to and now we just can’t go back to opening our horizons. We had the following appetizers; The coconut ceviche which was amazing, the Cesar Salad which isn’t like any regular Cesar... it’s better! And last but the least, the Grilled Spanish octopus. This had to be the best appetizer I’ve ever had! Honestly, the flavors used all came together in a way that defines culinary masterpiece! Our entrees, my wife had the kimchi fried rice and I had the wagyu burger. My wife isn’t a foodie like I am but this rice had her eyes open in a way I became slightly jealous. She loved it and compared it to our favorite fried rice she can’t eat anymore since going vegetarian. So to have something that reminds you of your once favorite dish you can’t have anymore which she nows raves this kimchi fried rice takes first place. My burger isn’t just a regular meat and patty burger. The meat used is wagyu. If you haven’t heard of this kind of meat before google it and you’ll thank me later. This burger is something I can see Richard Brunson eating on his private jet! It’s fancy, exotic and gourmet to the fullest. Dessert was a brûlée cheesecake with a raspberry reduction and mint syrup. If our meal could come to a better finish this cheesecake was it! Just perfect. The service was had was unmatched. Our waiters answered all our questions and even recommended the dishes we now love! The whole staff is extremely attentive. The beverage assistant manager recognized my wife and I from last time and even the hostess. Everyone here is at the top of their game and it shows. Tidal has become our favorite new restaurant to visit and the view is breathtaking. I highly recommend it.
Beautiful view of Mission Bay and great patio to dine on. It was cool and the heaters kept us warm.
Staff helpful but sometimes a bit too helpful!
Lovely evening--watched the sunset over the bay from our table. Food was delicious, service from everyone from busboy to waitress to receptionist was warm and friendly. A quiet refuge in a noisy world!!
Beautiful location and ambience. It was nighttime, so there wasn't too much of a view, but the decor, inside and outside lighting, and the fact that it is located inside a resort made the evening feel special versus another restaurant located in say, a strip mall or off a neighborhood street.
The waiter did forget to bring my dessert, so I just told him to remove it from the bill and not bother bringing it out since everyone else was done eating. (The picture is of a dessert that my sister ordered.) Other than that snafu, a lovely night.
The view from the terras was amazing. The service was very attentive.
Both the appetizer and entree were over salted. It wasn't only my dishes, noth my companions said their dishes were too salty also. The only course that wasn't too salty was dessert.
Good ambiance and view. Service pace was a little fast as we finished a 3-course restaurant week dinner in about an hour with drinks. Main scallop dish was a bit salty and on the small side. Food was just ok but dessert was delicious.
Great food for restaurant week
Tasty Perfect portions but most importantly we dined with view as requested. top polite service.
I requested a table with a view for my mothers birthday and asked for a cake or birthday dessert, and everything we requested was provided for in a timely manner and very friendly service. They are efficient and very professinal and the food was awesome. My entire family was impressed
We went to Tidal for the first time during Restaurant week and this review is based on the $40 p/p menu. We were seated outside on the deck overlooking the water and sunset. Heat lamps and later blankets kept all four of us warm. Service was impeccable. The staff was attentive but not intrusive. Heat lamps were turned higher if the bus at saw you pulling your jacket tighter, dropped napkins were replaced with fresh ones. Our waiter was spot on when asked for recommendation between 2 items. The menu definitely had a Guam/Hawaiian influence. Menu was somewhat limited. Dishes are a little uneven. On appetizers both the octopus and the beef cheek taro skewers were well executed but the Caesar salad was ordinary. The same was true for desserts, fabulous creme brûlée cheesecake but a good but not great boudin with macadamia nut chocolate cookie. We only tasted two out of three entrees. The miso salmon was cooked perfectly with red risotto and was outstanding. The scallop dish only had two medium scallops and may be a bit light for a hearty appetite. We had a great experience not in a small part due to the staff. A big shout out to Logan.
Very good food and service. Shrimp coconut soup was absolutely delicious.
Tidal was a great place to celebrate my dad’s birthday with family and friends. Chef Andrew Reyes and the rest of the staff were great! Nice to see Pacific Islander and Filipino flavors influencing the cuisine. Will definitely be returning to check out brunch!
We had the tasting menu and it was amazing! The chef was able to accommodate my preference to land animals and the value was great.
Melissa was outstanding & the food was excellent!
As a waitress who appreciates great customer service, I was SO pleased to receive such outstanding service at Tidal! Our waiter, Daniel, was personable, knowledgeable, and attentive. Hats off to the chef(s) as well - there were plenty of delicious options (which made it difficult to choose just one!) and many unique dishes that you won’t find anywhere else. The service, food, and atmosphere made it such a pleasure to dine there - thank you!
Great atmosphere and views. The food had a creative flare to it and tasted great.
We had the scallops and tomahawk steak. They were delicious. I wish they showed the tomahawk steak to us before carving it. They delivered the steak to our table already cut into slices. It didn’t look like a tomahawk anymore.
Gorgeous view and ambience. "Pretty good" service. The food was a HUGE disappointment. Our group of 3 ordered the Cattleman's Cut to share (supposedly for as many as 4) and it was undercooked, greasy, grisly, and tough. It came with 2 side dishes. The mushrooms were tasty enough (also a bit tough) but the mashed potatoes were skimpy, supposedly enough to serve 4, but barely enough for 3 small servings. And they were quite ordinary: more like something one would whip up from a mix. The beef entree was $110., and was a total waste of money. Will not return, no matter how pretty the view is!
We had a chicken dish but it was still raw. We asked them to cook again twice but still not working. They gave us a chocolate cake for compensation
Try the octopus and coconut soup!
It was our anniversary and McKenna danial and Julie were amazing. McKenna made us feel right at home the second we walked in wishing us a happy anniversary. Julie’s service was amazing. She made us feel special on our special night. Food was amazing. Overall one of the best experiences I’ve had dining out. Coming back next time we’re in California.
Fantastic service, excellent food. I love this place and would highly recommend it.
The food was phenomenal. There were heaters and blankets to keep you comfy when the sun went down. Wait staff was as good as the food. I frequent a lot of upscale eateries and tidal passes the test. Will definitely return.
The food was incredible. I got the halibut with the red risotto which was so delicious. We were celebrating our anniversary, and it was the perfect spot for a memorable night. It was peaceful and had a great view for sunset. Our server, I believe her name was Heather, was friendly and kind, making sure to help us celebrate. Will be back again!
