Great View, Great Food

For anyone looking for a restaurant with a view, this is a terrific place. Besides vast windows that look out over the San Diego Bay, there is also outdoor seating right on the water. The presentation of each meal was very nice but more importantly the taste was excellent. I had the Lobster Bisque... read more

I love this restaurant, had a very good food in the past few year, somehow the quality of their food isn't the same, which is really sad, because I love to go there, they have the best view in San Diego, and the service is excellent, I wish they will read this and try to go back to serving fresh,...

My husband and I were there when the doors opened, years ago. We are residents of Point Loma, and never tire of the food or the spectacular view! We dine there for brunch, lunch , cocktail hour and dinners. The meals and the service are consistently superb. Going there today, in fact, with my sister-in-law and niece, who are also... More

C level belongs to the Cohen family of restaurants, so already you know that the food and the service will be impeccable. You can't beat the view of San Diego Bay and downtown. We had the seared ahi appetizer, the crab cake app, the spinach salad with blackened shrimp and the Caesar's salad with salmon. All delicious! We were a... More

As a local, I've eaten at this restaurant a lot. When it first opened the food was great, the menu original, parking ample and free, and the view is spectacular This was always my "go to restaurant" when I had out of town company even though they don't take reservations. Fast forward 8 or so years.....I took a relative from... More

Delicious restaurant with an amazing ocean view. Waitstaff were friendly and knowledgable about the menu. Cocktails were delicious, but the highlight was my meal. The Sea bass was honestly the best I've ever tasted - perfection! My husband enjoyed his pork chop meal also. Great place for a date!

I love going to C Level for lunch. Great view and great food. The Lobster Bisque is a must try. All their food is good and prices are very reasonable.

Great Casual Spot. Terrific for stopping after you get in from a flight and want to avoid the traffic when you drive home. Good casual menu. Wonderful view and atmosphere.

This was a very disappointing experience. Although it was busy we were seated very quickly out side. Our waiter was very pleasant and efficient. 3 of us shared the Ahi tuna stacked appetizer which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was down hill after that. An order of pork chop was overlooked and dry. It was replaced with mac & cheese, which... More

I am a vegan and I had the very best vegan meal (Spicy Tofu) I have ever had at any restaurant including vegan only places. My husband and I went here for the ocean front and view of downtown San Diego and North Island Naval Base. He loved his fish and chips nearly as much as I did my tofu.
