Special occasion place for sure. The food, service and atmosphere are all 4 star! You can't fake class. They have it!

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Marine Room. We have been there before and the service and food are consistently good. I think that we both had surf and turf, and while very expensive, it was absolutely great. The thing that detracted from our experience was insects! When we sat down at the table there were... More

We were lucky enough to arrive early for our reservation, and wow! were we happy we did. We watched sunset over the Pacific, and it was a beautiful view. The setting truly makes this location spectacular. Meanwhile the decor inside the restaurant is dated. Our service was impeccable. And the food was good. I ordered the lobster bisque, which was...

At a place like this you expect more than just great food; you expect a great experience. The service we received at the Marine Room was just awful. Condescending waiter, if we wanted anything we had to stop him to get it. They put us at a table with absolutely no view of the sunset (there are only 3 tables... More

After reading many reviews of restaurants in San Diego we decided our splurge dinner was going to be at the Marine Room. The service was a little shaky.... no bread served, coffee came after the dessert was served, and the food came out fast. We were out of there in 1 hour and 20 minutes even after waiting for the...

We love the Marine Room especially if you go there during a high tide, you can see the water coming up to the window it feels so fantastic.

If you have a special occasion to celebrate in the San Diego area, don't pass up going to the Marine Room. The service and food was beyond measure. The atmosphere alone would have been worth the trip but everything was perfect. A window seat around 6 pm gives you a view of people walking on the small beach in front... More

Return trip some 8 years later. Still one of the finest in all of California. We went there for a special birthday occasion. Love the setting. Right on the ocean, and I mean right on. We were there when the tide was coming in, and at the end of the meal, the waves were splashing up on the windows. Just... More

Went to the Marine Room for a special anniversary dinner. It was nice but the restaurant has really become dated. Decor in serious need of an update. The food was good but nothing special. The thing this restaurant has going for it is the view, which is spectacular. The Marine Room is right on the beach and the views are... More
