My family and I visited this restaurant on August 22, 2015. We thought it looked like a great place to eat after our Seal Tour. We were so VERY wrong. I should have known it was going to be disappointing front the start. The hostess was not friendly when we walked up to the podium on the lower level. She... More

We were in Seaport Village, it was dinner time, we gave it a shot. Wish we'd followed our instinct that it might just be a tourist trap, because that's the best thing I can say for it. The food was basic at best. I don't know how you overcook fish in a city like San Diego in an area called... More

A bit overpriced. Food was average, not great. Would not make an effort to go here again, but its a place to eat if you are hungry.

We had a great view to enjoy a romantic sunset. I had the summer salad w/shrimp. Great salad. Had fruits and a delicious salad. I also had the chowder. A very relaxing evening. Will do it again.

We had a few meals here while at a conference. Each time was a nice experience. I had a salmon burger which was really nicely done with a tasty sauce. the fries were crisp and fresh. My husband had a shrimp salad and it was very good! I had a PeachTini and it was very very good. I would definitely... More

The food here was just ok. The setting is a nice place overlooking the water, but service was pretty slow.

Nice views of the harbor, atmosphere very pleasant. Staff polite and yet distracted. Ahi tuna tasted fine, stringy with grizzle, annoying to chew. Got an impression sat in warming window before served. Sea bass very good.

The place is in a very nice location close to San Diego Bay. It has a wide fish dishes selection. We got fish & chips (good chunks of fish, but fries were just ok) and Cioppino, which was really good.

The food was ok, nothing special and way pricey! But the views were wonderful and the wait staff were rather attentive.
