We took a party of 7 here for a recent business dinner. This place rocks with a great atmosphere, great food and great service. We did not have a reservation so had to wait an hour for our table but it was well worth the wait. Many thanks to the manager (Jeff I think was his name) for the extra... More

The service and atmosphere was incredible!! The food was amazing and Melissa (or server) was personable fun to be around. We will definitely come back when we return to San Diego.

This is a great restaurant. The service was great and we had a phenomenal view. I ordered the brown sugar crusted double pork chops. These pork chops were the best tasting pork chops I have ever eaten. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who is visiting San Diego.

Island Prime, it's not just a restaurant it's an experience. The food, ohmygod the food. It's the flavor, the presentation, the 'pairings', absolutely perfect-and the seabass is to die for. The atmosphere and the views are incredible, you have attentive and knowledgable service and the views of the San Diego skyline (especially at night) are unreal. I really can't say... More

I love coming to Island Prime Restaurant. The view is fabulous, the food is the best, and the service is excellent. My steak was cooked perfectly and the brussels are the best.

My wife's 73rd Birthday and this is a special place with great view, great food and impeccable service. Only my 3rd time here but her Seared Ahi was "the best" she has ever had and my rack of lamb very nice after cocktails which were generous and not exceedingly expensive. Our waiter, Gabriel, brought everything together by being very knowledgeable,... More

Island Prime is that great place for a special occasion. We had a wonderful dinner with a great view of the city and the bay. The menu is on the pricey side but for the good service, food, and views it is worth it. The steaks are excellently executed and the fresh seafood is well seasoned and plated beautifully.

I phoned ahead to book a table & explained that as my partner & I were only in San Diego for 2 nights & it was our first time there we would like a window table with a view. I was told that this would be possible. We turned up & were shown to a table at the back of... More
