I was pleased with my meal. I had the Coconut Shrimp and it was great. Service was great and the view is great from any seat. Menu is broad so you will find what you want. Good value for your money. I think this is one the the nicer resturants on this area.

Located in Seaport Village, the restaurant has a nice view of the San Diego Bay. The Food is Good and Service Very Good, but overall a little pricy when all factors are included. I would just rate the value as good vs VG or Excellent. The outdoor seating (enclosed Patio) is good for a business lunch as it is not... More

Had dinner at Harbor House this past September. It was unusually warm for San Diego, but the outdoor deck was pretty comfortable. We had just caught the tail end of happy hour, so the cold beers helped cool us off from a day of sight-seeing and walking around seaport village. The view of the ocean was really nice to see...

If you go get a seat by the window to view the harbor. Breath taking view. The food did not take my breath away. My crab stuffed shrimp had almost no crab, but the striped bass was good. The veggies were just ok. Now my hubby got a New York strip and it was delicious. The service was good, but... More

Ate at the Harbor House on September 27th while visiting San Diego. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Prices are reasonable for the location too. Located in the Seaport Village area of San Diego, there are a lot of attractions and interesting shopping around the area. Spend a bit of extra time and explore what there... More

After making a reservation and looking forward to a good meal, my wife and I were very disappointed with the meal here. The Cioppino was unusually salty. When the server finally came around to check on our meal, she kindly took it back and gave my wife a menu to order something else. 15 minutes later she came back to... More

We just now walked out. Should have known when we walked up and a huge sign said "serving lunch" and it was almost 6 pm. There was only about 8 tables full on a Saturday night. We were seated and nobody came to our table at all for 15 minutes. Servers walked passed us and didn't even acknowledge us. Not... More
