Service was very friendly but a little uneven....but the food was great. The scallop ceviche appetizer was especially good. We also appreciated being... read more

Dined after enjoying a wonderful cruise of San Diego Bay and continued to enjoy the water view from our table. Great rockfish and shrimp! Service was good also. Would definitely return on our next visit to San Diego.

We stopped in after traveling but before our late dinner plans. The smoked trout with a wedge salad was fantastic! Grilled fish tacos with slaw were also wonderful! Heard they were closed for remodeling but glad they are now open!!

The food was outstanding and the service was great along with the views. The next time I'm in the area I will make it a point to dine here again.

Living in southern Arizona there isn't any really good seafood available. Couldn't wait to get a bite of seafood in San Diego during our vacation. This restaurant was recommended by our segway tour guide and it was in walking distance to the things we were checking out on the waterfront. Lots of space. Great seafood. Had a great seat overlooking... More

This restaurant has a great location, next to the Midway overlooking the bay. It has two floors, the second floor is more upscale. It was crowded and everything was chaotic and almost out of control, from the receptionist to the waiters who were overwhelmed. We waited quite a lot to get a table, even with reservation, and to have somebody... More

Great view of San Diego. Moderately priced. When I went it was super busy and my food was cold. I had a piece of opah and scalloped potatoes, my Mom and I shared some oysters. Food was tasty but cold. Let my server know but he was so busy.. I would return but not on a busy afternoon.

It's perfect place for fish eating lover. Has all the cool flavors and more. The service is a little slow even do the restaurant wasn't full. But you will appreciate a cultural flavor

Good food with a view of the Navy base and the ships and men that go in Harms Way located across the harbor. Order what you like from the menu and drink up while watching the sun set over the big war ships,

This our favorite restaurant in SanDiego. We head straight for the patio outside the bar where seating is on a first come first served basis. This side of the restaurant is right next to the Navy ship "Midway" and has a first class view of harbor and all its activities. Full bar, wonderful food, fast efficient staff what else could...
