SEA180 Coastal Tavern
Reservations are for indoor tables only, we are not accepting reservations for patio dining.
Dine outside, they have blankets and warmers. Great view and the menu was great, portions vary, so are spot on, others not enough, yes I will be back.
Valentines Reservations where at 8:00 pm but we where not seated until 9:30. Waited too long for food. Worse service ever. Very disappointed, 200 bucks down the drain.
Excellent service and nice atmosphere
We ate here 4 times while staying in Imperial Beach.. We had 1 great breakfast the first day, extremely short handed had a Valentine’s Day pre fixed meal. Sat us outside and stated that I wanted outside, but online it says no outside available. I did not want to sit outside but it was so busy that we had to wait for a reservation I had made a month in advance and paid a deposit. That meal was ok and staff was all friendly but kitchen was very behind. Then we had breakfast a couple days later and my husband got sick from the Crabs Benedict. But didn’t realize it until we had made reservations again for our guest night. I took our company and husband stayed home. Again we had staff apologetic again about the kitchen being behind. I could see the potential but they need to figure it out. We have to come back every 2 months to IB and stay walking distance from the restaurant but might not return.
This is such a wonderful place on every issue. We visit this restaurant so often that we have tried virtually every item and love them all.
We really enjoyed sitting outside.
Management and waiters were very friendly and accommodating move to heater for us and gave us blanket since it was a bit chilly. But it was so lovely and not crowded and we got a nice table with a clear Ocean View.
SEA180 Coastal Tavern is an amazing establishment meant for many occasions. My husband and I visited for lunch on our wedding anniversary and sat on the patio. The only thing separating us from the beach was the glass patio walls. It was beautiful. They even have heaters for the chiller days. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious!
Everything it was good but our waitress did not attend us, we had to wait a long time to order and then to pay the bill we had to go.
Outstanding customer service and food. Right on the beach where you can see the pier and waves crashing ashore. I will be back. Wonderful breakfast menu.
Great dinner, service was great. Charles did an excellent job. Will definitely come back again.
The food was great!🥰 got a good service, very neat and calming place. Perfect for any special occasion.
RW experience was just average. Kitchen must have been catching up from a busy afternoon since apps took 40 min but entrees quickly followed. Shrimp carbonara was inedible as pasta was severely overcooked and so was the poached egg...too much time in the broiler or micro? My dessert was straight up Sara Lee cheesecake which was underwhelming to say the least. Short rib entree was best entree followed by local catch which was yellowtail.
The dining room was not busy so unsure why the timing was so off.
Fernando was our server and he was over the top! Sea 180 is awesome hands down!
Rough night for the staff. They overbooked and everything suffered.
Want to clarify that our waiter was excellent only 3 stars for service because we had 6 pm reservation and didn’t get seated till 630
Everything was wonderful !! The food,the service, and the view,amazing!!
Dinner was delicious!! Our waiter was attentive and friendly. Will come back again.
Great food and ambiance. Their restaurant week menu is there to keep you coming with full size portions and great price.
Great location and service
Food is mediocre and I got sick from it.
A few items like the Brussels sprouts are very good but most of the food is mediocre
Great experience for SD restaurant week. Our server Hector was excellent on his first night as a solo server. Efficient, warm & friendly!
Food was perfect! Service was wonderful. They forgot about our starters but they made up for it by apologizing and taking it off our bill. The two things that bothered me was: 1. the smell, it smelled like the interior absorbed all the smell of old grease and food; and 2. The restrooms - it was clean and yet it had that feeling of being unkept and not well-maintained, like an old, musty restroom.
Service was awesome! We had a server with reddish hair and she was stellar! Food was good but literally everything needed a tiny bit of salt.
Michelle, was my server. She is a true assest to the CRG. She knew the menu, made me feel welcome, made suggestions, provided knowledge, and went above and beyond a typical "server". Michelle provided me a "Dining Experience". Michelle is a true example of a great server and should be a model to train others.

Service was awesome!
Great service and ambience. Fabulous view. Mediocre food. I had the half chicken, but it was so smoky I couldn’t eat it. Also from what I did eat it upset my stomach. Perhaps let people know when ordering that it is an extremely overpowering smoke flavor. The drink I had was good, with pretty presentation. The portion sizes were decent, but perhaps side salads or veggies as a side would be good, considering the price. I would definitely come back for the view and service, but I wouldn’t order dinner. Maybe happy hour or try them for brunch
Although the restaurant is not new, the staff appeared inexperienced and our server was being trained and not ready for prime time yet; we waited 20 minutes for our drink and the restaurant was more than half empty. No bread provided; had to pay for it. Food was good but servings were skimpy. I understand happy hour, especially during spring or summer when you can sit on the patio is worthwhile.
Good food. Friendly service. Terrific ambiance. A bit pricy but not too bad considering.
Take a date! It was the best first date ever!!!
The server I had went BEYOND my expectations. I was happy with service.
Overall the experience was good, a blanket was offered cause it was chilly. But , my glass came out with lipstick on it and we were offered 2 different menus so it was a bit confusing as to what we could order. Also, we had a coupon and we didn’t print it so we had to email someone so they could print it for us instead of the restaurant just honoring it. But my mom had a great birthday dinner!
Great hideaway meal on the beach
Fab food. Can’t wait to go again. I ordered the grilled cheese with tomato jam and it was the best sandwich I may have ever eaten. The Jam was sweet and tomatoey, the bread was thick and perfectly grilled, the mix of cheeses was just right, not too much cheese, not too little cheese. My husband had the crab cake sandwich and, it too , was perfectly crispy and delicious.
Brought some friends here for lunch. We had great service, or good was delicious and, of course, the ocean view fantastic!
Awesome as always!
BAD! All the way around. It’s in a hotel.
Over an hour to get our 3 apps.
Service and management was the worst I’ve had in years.
Manager is not knowledgeable, and did not meet our needs or expectations.
Can’t imagine this place staying staying open for much longer.
very slow service this time.; almost 30 minutes wait to get appetizers, - after that, all things went well. Food is very tasty.
Food was solid, with a good variety for everyone. Nice views of the beach, water, and pier. Excellent service was the restaurant's strongest attributes.
Great spot, wonderful waiter and good prices. Congrats!
Great food. Our waiter was AMAZING! It’s right on the beach so the view is amazing.
This is a wonderful restaurant part of the Cohn Restaurant Group and the food is of the highest quality. And to this, your view is of the beach and ocean. How can you beat this???
