Description: Taste the World, from our viewGlass Door is a restaurant that offers the casual sophistication that San Diego is known for and features a seafood based 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 microbrews 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.

Came here for a date night on a trip while in San Diego. I was recommended the halibut special by our server Kimberly. I really enjoyed the sunset/view from the patio. The food was alright but our server Kimberly made the experience worth while, her personality and smile made our time there worth while and if I come back, it... More

Jaye was a waitress at the Glass Door who stood out from the rest with her personable and charming character. I loved her suggestions and her enthusiasm! The breakfasts were so good here and our whole family got to enjoy free vouchers to enjoy compliments of the staff.

The best part of this restaurant is the view - definitely ask to be seated "outside". Food was good and nicely displayed. Service and staff are excellent. If you have a package at the hotel that includes breakfast, the breakfast options are nice and pretty tasty - definitely a bargain.

I love this bar! The views are fantastic, and the service is awesome! The bar manager, Charles, is very personable and engaging; he always has me laughing my *** off, and he makes a killer Old Fashion, which has kept me coming back again and again. He is the epitome of a true bartender, which is hard to find. Do... More

Breakfast was included with our stay, and it was delicious. Food was executed very well and the service was WONDERFUL. Even for being the busiest part of her Sunday Brunch Rush Jaye made sure we were well taken care of...not mention the mean Bloody Mary she can whip up. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow!
