Amazing view, great food, great service!

Wow! We dined here on a Sunday evening, waited about an hour and ended up with the perfect table along the window at sundown...with views of the USS Reagan and beautiful downtown San Diego. We started our meal with calamari and potstickers...both served with the same dipping sauce. Both... read more

Overall, we were not impressed with our dining experiences in San Diego. C-Level was the one exception. We had a fantastic experience and fantastic food. Being from the central time zone, we took advantage of their Happy Hour menu (I think they call it Social Hour menu). We were fortunate to have no wait and even more fortunate to get... More

I love going to C-Level for lunch. Their food is great, the waitress & waiters are very friendly and the view is one of the best in San Diego overlooking the water and watching the boats sail by, looking across to North Island/Coronado and towards the downtown hi-rise buildings. Simply beautiful.

We had lunch on Saturday for my parents 51st wedding anniversary at C-level. This was the week end with San Diego Temperature over 90 downtown. The wait was well over the 30 to 45 minutes the hostess said close to One Hour. All the food came fast from the kitchen and the drinks were fast as well, lots of staff... More

Tough to get a bad table at C-Level, the water and downtown views surround you. The seafood is delicious and the staff is great!

Beautiful view, favorite outstandingly oppulent and delicious appetizers for $5 each! Excellent service, wonderful drinks. A wonderful relaxing experience to treat yourself to. Easy to make it an early dinner.

I frequent this location quite often. The food is good. The drinks are very good and and most of all, it sits right on the water. The view is great. You have an option of inside or outside. I love the outside section. It is open, light and airy. I usually go for lunch. It can be a long wait... More

This is a terrific place for Saturday lunch, but because they don't take reservations, expect an hours wait. We spent that time at the bar and enjoyed the worlds best and most beautiful Bloody Mary. Very good food, spectacular view. This place is an experience.

We waited for an hour on a Sunday night for what really is just a standard seafood and steak place. The food was ok but boring and I have had so many amazing meals in San Diego, I was sorry to have wasted one here - too much good food, too little time! The view is great, but you can... More
