SEA180° - a coastal tavern, brings contemporary beachfront dining to one of San Diego’s most distinctive locales. With sweeping “180 degree” views of the Coronado Islands, South Bay and Mexico, the name SEA180° was coined from the expansive ocean views visible from every corner of the establishment and is just steps from the stunning Imperial Beach sand. Located on the ground level of Pier South Resort, named for the nearby Imperial Beach pier, SEA180° provides one of the few dining options in San Diego that is truly oceanfront.

Our reservation was for inside, but when we arrived they were able to accommodate us on the outside patio. A beautiful sunny day, and it was lovely to watch the ocean and the people on the beach. The outdoor area is shaded, making it very comfortable. Lots of choices on the menu for a very nice lunch, and our servers were excellent.

I felt the Easter Buffet was overpriced and the food layout cramped. Coffee and juice we're not included for $65 + 3% surcharge. The staff was very nice.

We had two meals one was good and one was not. Hamburger was very good and tasty. The seafood salad which included salmon had many soft bones and was unacceptable.

Our waiters were excellent along with a few others who walked by and asked if we were doing fine. So many breakfast options but so enjoyed my choice of steak and eggs. Couldn’t resist ordering the French toast with strawberries, bananas & Nutella; excellent! And the buffet had such a great selection. Only disappointment was the rude attitude of the hostess. But overall we all enjoyed our meals & time there!

Great food and our waiter was outstanding. We sat outside by a fire pit and watched the sun set while having a cocktail - fabulous! Sea180 is right on the beach and the outdoor area can't be beat to watch the sunset and beautiful ocean. Then we moved inside for our dinner reservation.
All 8 guests really enjoyed their dishes - creative and fresh cuisine. Only negative is that we booked a reservation ahead for our birthday dinner and they sat us back in the corner by the bathroom and next to a side door to a parking lot. 4 of the 8 in our group had seats looking directly into the entrance to the men's and women's bathroom. Next time I will specifically request NOT to sit there.

If you want to have a conversation with the people at your table, don't go here on a Friday or Saturday night. The raucous noise from the bar and/or the large parties make it impossible to hear one another.

Table service and food was great. Only critical feedback is to suggest that the hostess smile and act friendlier. They seemed annoyed about us asking to for a different table before we sat.

Fernando our waiter was excellent! Two of my friends were new to the restaurant. Fernando knew his menu well and made excellent recommendations. The food was excellent as always.
The staff at the hotel front desk was kind enough to show us rooms. We have some celebrations coming up and we would love to stay at the property.
My girlfriend loved her restaurant experience so much that she took her mom there yesterday for lunch!

We love Sea 180. The view of the ocean from the patio can't be beat. They even give out blankets if the weather is a little chilly. The food is delicious and unique, not just the typical selections. Great drinks, good service. We always think of Sea 180 when we have a special occasion.

Arrive for reserved 630 dinner date. Had a bad transition from first to second waiter. Served water and wine and told he's leaving and then new guy did take order and served when it was ready, but never saw him after, The restaurant is lovely outside in the dark along the beach. Adequate heaters for guests, blankets offered. Food was good but not great. Too much char on Brussels and Hummus? in chopped salad it a mystery for the eater. A thin spread on the bowl is hard to get at with the pitchfork serving utensil. And could not tell that there was any dressing on the salad. The charred brussels left me wanting to rinse my mouth. Mac Cheese with shrimp was good. Sausage plate needed spice(flavor in the grain mustard/Kraut. Might be that is was room temperature. We have eaten at 180 many times and this was below average, meaning it is usually fantastic and it was barely average. Fairly busy at 630 we thought we were forgotten frequently. Good side that we were not rushed, but probably forgotten. I think it was just the turnover of wait staff we were lost in the crowd. Big party of men in adjacent room may be a factor? Next time we will expect better
