Excellent experience all around! Timing of food was on point! I never felt rushed! The food was delectable! I had a prime steak 16 oz, of course only at half. With Alfredo pasta and vegetables. They Alfredo is the best I have ever had!! I went on a Friday night and reheated in the roster oven my leftovers on Sunday... More

We live near the restaurant and just walked there. We sat outside and had a lovely ocean view and sunset. The food was wonderful. I had the best wedge salad ever, and the dressing was to die for. Also the lobster ravioli was melted in my mouth. And I must say the lemon drop martini was perfect😜

We had Shrimp cocktail and mushrooms. with drinks one afternoon. The service was very good and food/drinks were good also. I will return. It's a shame for no parking except valet though.

We we greater by required valet parking $7. Seated quickly. 5 minutes. Greeted promptly. 1 minute. Served a really great meal that was served within 12 minutes. The bill for 2 entrees, 2 appetizers, 1 dessert and waters was $134.00 which was higher than expected. Views of the ocean sunset, Pacific Coast Highway.

It's hard to believe this place is packed every night. The food is so bad it should be empty. The view is awesome and the wine and drinks were good but our dinner was dreadful. Sack the chef and motivate your wait staff or you're going down. Shame because it could and should be a real gem. $500 for dinner... More

This is a great situation and always busy so be sure to have a reservation. The sea food is fresh but one wonders why everything is served with overcooked vegetables. Staff are friendly and calm, even when the place is buzzing.

Amazing views with indoor and outdoor tables. We come here whenever we are traveling in San Diego for business. Our clients always appreciate the food and the ocean view experience. The servers are friendly and provide exceptional service. We can't wait to go back!

I was in a party of 7 so am I usually more lenient when it comes to service to large parties. This was my first time here and it was a great experience. All the meals came on time and nothing was sent back. There was always someone filling glasses and being very attentive. We had the Antipasto Della Casa... More

First time at this restaurant and was excited when we got there as it is right across the street from the beach. We went with another couple who had been there before. We waited for an outside table - which was worth the wait. Had a mojito with vodka and it was very good. We then were seated and brought... More
