A must for friends visiting from out of town

When ever I have guests flying into San Diego I make a point of bringing them to c level. The food is great (love the skirts on fire salad) and the views looking towards downtown San Diego , Coronado island and Mexico all while watching the boats in San Diego bay are a real treat.

I honestly can't tell you how many times I've been to C-Level, but its a whole lot. Anytime you are picking someone up from the airport, its a good excuse to dine at C-Level due to its proximity and its spectacular view of the San Diego bay and skyline. Arguably, one of the the best dining views in San Diego,... More

We needed to pick up a friend at the airport around 7 p.m. and decided to arrive early enough before his arrival to have dinner nearby. C-Level Lounge is surprisingly convenient to the airport, has no-hassle valet parking, and a really REALLY impressive view. We got seated on the outside deck immediately and enjoyed all the benefits of their 3:30... More

Good service. Overcrowded at 4 pm. We ordered happy hour drinks and appetizers. 40 minute wait for outside seating. We stayed at the bar after our buzzer went off to move outside.

16 of us had 2 tables. I had Ahi-very good. Steaks looked huge. Scallops searched with beacon? Attentive service. Not too noisy. No kids there. Bar looked like fun.

It was crowded but we were able to get in with barely any wait. Seated right next to the window to watch the sunset-beautiful! The service was good & the food was great. I had the scallops-delicious.

I ordered the iceberg wedge and the ahi stack. Wedge was good as its a pretty simple salad. It was large. The ahi stack was very visually appealing and was delicious.

Meeting friends for lunch and we wanted a casual waterfront restaurant, and C-level was perfect! We sat on the patio on a glorious San Diego day, the atmosphere was casual, with a buzz and the view was great. The service was extremely friendly and efficient. The food was very good and the portions very large (almost overwhelming). Couldn't fault anything....a... More
