Breathtaking Harbor Views

Although we missed the ever popular happy hour we were overcome with delight when we were seated against the glass over looking the harbor on the restaurants outdoor deck. We arrived at 6:30 and witnessed Downtown San Diego transform from gleaming in the sun to glowing into the sunset. The steel... read more

Good views, horrible management, ok food. The only thing that keeps this restaurant open is it's views of the city. Manager is a hothead jerk who degrades guests and makes them feel unwelcome. Came here for a celebration, ended up being moved 3 times to different tables (got rained on at one table, another had a hole in the ceiling... More

Let's not even mention how gorgeous the view (of San Diego bay, Coronado Island and downtown skyline ) from this place looks... we'll focus on the food: Absolutely everything in the menu is delicious, from the fancy (inexpensive though) appetizers to the steak salad or those amazing fish tacos. Bottomline, this is a MUST visit place while you're in San... More

The location can't be beat - right on the water with great views of Coronado Island. It's also very close to the airport (you drive through airport rental car parking to reach it). It has a fun, upbeat atmosphere, but I'm disappointed to report the food was lackluster. My guest ordered the fish and chips. The fish was unremarkable and... More

Came here for a business lunch and what a place. Great location by the sea front. Great attentive but not overbearing staff. I had a lobster club sandwich which was superb, lots of lobster and really well flavoured. I would suggest to arrive early as the restaurant filled up really quickly,

We were visiting friends in San Diego and they took us to C Level for Sunday lunch. The Bloody Mary's were great as was the food and service. Loved the view of the harbor. Will definitely return next time we are in San Diego.

This is a fun place for family and friends. The food is good, but not great! The service is always good. A little pricey for the food quality, but a really fun place to be outside for lunch, drinks or dinner. I have eaten here many times. The views are great of the harbor and skyline! It is a bit...

We were there on a Sunday between lunch and dinner. It was packed so we decided to wait at the bar. Bartenders were friendly and quick. Our group had martini's that were well made. We chose outdoor seating (the only way to go) to enjoy the beautiful day and views available. Again we were acknowledged immediately and our second round... More

The endless summer drink is on point. Well worth a 30 to 40 minute wait. Great views. Awesome food. Excellent wait staff...my waiter made fantastic recommendations.
