About

Taste the World, from our view
Glass Door is a restaurant that offers the casual sophistication that San Diego is known for and features a menu that draws true influence from every major culinary capital in the world. Our menu takes root in flavors and techniques that can be found in Eastern Europe, Spain, Italy, Asia, France, and the Middle East and gives them all a decisively San Diego interpretation. In addition to our cuisine we also offer craft cocktails made with expert techniques and local micro brews that showcase the flavors San Diego has to offer. To compliment our global flavors we have a panoramic view of the San Diego Marina that gives our concept completion. Come join us at one of our communal tables on our 4th floor perch and taste the world from our view.

Definitely wouldnt return as Brunch was well below average. Service was very poor, and management staff wasn't familiar that I wanted to make sure that they knew I booked my reservations via OPENTABLE. They need to get it together.

Our table was not cleaned well. The prixe fix brunch menu had no breakfast items on it. The food was just above a chain restaurant. They added a 22% gratuity for a party of three. Sadly very disappointed.

Sunday brunch spots can be crowded but Glass Door is tucked away and you can usually just walk in with no reservation. Unfortunately the food has gone downhill since I was last there, so breakfast is just okay now but the beautiful view and charming service keeps it on my recommend list. They changed the outside patio from tables for two to a long counter with seating facing the water, which accommodates more guests.

Some pluses, food is order off the menu and even at 10:30 AM you can choose from breakfast or lunch choices so good for a group.

Glass Door roof top bar is one of the rare jewels in spectrum of restaurants in Little Italy!
Kind of hidden if you don't know about it or never seen the beautiful terrace from India street where most of the restaurants and dinning in Little Italy are...
Ever since I discovered with my husband one night it become my favorite bar...
Where should I begin... The view is amazing, the food is just delicious.. The prices are great..and the friendly helpful staff is always around!
My favorite and the best host is Richard the guy who can make all your bar wish come true... Richard the greatest!:)))
I celebrated there my birthday, my wedding party, friends night out.. Etc
With two words the BEST BAR I know in Little Italy - I always come back!:)))))

Used to go here a few years ago and it was lively and fun. This time, there was hardly anyone in there on a Saturday night. The service was bad, the menu was nothing special and a bit overpriced in my opinion. My salmon salad was literally salmon on top of lettuce with two tiny pieces of cucumbers. They need help!

It's exactly that, food was delicious but even after 6 shared plates between 3 people we all still left hungry. The beef carpaccio was literally 3 bites, beautiful view though that's the biggest draw

The service was horrible here. We sat for a very long time before anyone waited on us or even acknowledged we were there.

Went here for Valentine 2016. Has a nice view of the bay and wentr right beforse sunset and enjoyed a prix fixe dinner menu while the sun laid to rest. You get nice night time views from the city lights. The food was excellent highly recommend the Wagu Steak if they have it on the menu
