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.

We had heard great things about the lobster bisque and we weren't disappointed. Very nice preparation with plenty of lobster meat. We were dropping out daughter off at the airport so we couldn't wait for an outdoor table. The downside of the indoor lounge is it was quite noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation. The food was quite good... More

My husband and I visited from out of town and were taken here for dinner the first night. We loved the view, the service, and the food so much, we came back twice more, for lunch and then for happy hour (which offers very reasonably priced starters and drinks.) The lobster mac and cheese is rich but to die for.... More

Part of the Cohn restaurant group, C-Level lounge is an excellent place to take out of town guests for both a fantastic view of downtown across SD bay. The menu is modest sized, but varied with many great choices.

I went to lunch there on a Saturday with two others for the first time. It has a pretty spectacular view of the San Diego harbor. We did not sit at the window, yet could still see that it had an amazing view. I understand from others, to expect a wait - especially if you want to sit at a... More

People are right; the view is gorgeous at lunch. We had a 30-min wait but it went by quickly since we took a nice long walk by the waterfront. We had our kids and my cousin from out of town so a mix of people and everyone was happy in the end. The staff is nice and very kid-friendly. Selection... More

Had longish layover at SAN (apx. 6 hours). After hanging out in United Club for a while, went to C-Level around 11:30a when it opens for lunch. Were seated immediately on the large covered patio. Amazing space, amazing views. Truly outstanding. Deck faces downtown SD across water. Service was very good. Nice, competent, upper class (no auctioning off dishes when... More

It is my favorite restaurant in San Diego. Location is convenient is very useful to impress friends who visit San Diego first time. It is also convenient for "good-bye" lunch or dinner who is leaving for airport. All my business dinners and lunches I choose this restaurant because they never disappoint with food or service. I got many compliments on... More

Our local relative who got us started on this advises to go to lunch when they open and ask for the outdoor seating. We scored with great bayside seats and enjoyed watching the boats and the city skyline. Nice wine list by the glass. We started with proscecco, just right for a warm day. My husband and I just did...

Well trained staff. Very good food. Great ambiance. Restaurant actually sits on stilts over the water. Water front there is very busy so it was entertaining. I recommend, just be prepared ... our lunch was $72 with a tip and that was for 2!!
