You can sit inside, outside, or inside-outside behind glass, which is perfect on a hot summer's evening. The view might be the best thing about this restaurant. The service is so-so - our host did not smile once during the whole meet-and-greet episode, the waitress was lovely but not up to the usual standard we had come to expect. The... More

Sat outside upstairs and had a lovely view and decent food - wasn't expecting a lot for a seemingly touristy place, but was pleasantly surprised. Massive drink list and food menu, so enough of a variety for everyone; there was one in my group who's gluten-free and another with various food allergies - they had no issue whatsoever, and the...

We had an early dinner here after our day long trolley tour. The restaurant is very clean, nice decor and the walls of windows & outdoor patio have wonderful views of the bay & marina. The service was very good...the food was good but nothing extraordinary. Husband's Plank Salmon was average--similar to what we've bought in the frozen section of... More

While visiting Seaport Village, you may wonder which restaurant to try out. This is the one will not disappoint you. Great scenic view, food and service. You can't ask for more. If you have kids, the kids menu has good choice and price.

There are several restaurants in Seaport Village, but the Harbor House is the most elegant. The best views are from the second floor. Excellent choice of sea fod.

Was quite humid when we visited. No air moving at all. Only the upper portion was open. Air conditioning was not on. Had to move twice just to get close to comfortable. Ordered appetizer but never got it.

This restaurant is a hidden gem in San Diego! I ate here four times over the course of a week, including an amazing work dinner that the staff bent over backwards to facilitate. The views are amazing, the service top notch, an awesome bar with local selections, and every item that I had from the menu was delicious. Additionally, prices... More

Situated on a grassy knoll overlooking Seaport Village and the bay, this restaurant will offer gourmet seafood in an upscale but relaxed atmosphere. Indoors and outdoors, the view sells the meal. But the food is quality. Friendly staff. We can recommend the cioppino, crab cakes, mixed grill and seafood risotto. Yum!
