Excellent

Recommended by a San Diego resident, this place did not disappoint. A beautiful view, great service, excellent food. Sit outside if you can, and come early, it is a popular spot and rightfully so.

This was my last meal before flying out of San Diego, and we were cutting it close timewise. We were told the wait for lunch would be 30 minutes, but after informing the hostess we had a flight she was happy to expedite us and have us seated in half that time. The waiter was also accommodating, and the food... More

My co-workers asked me where I wanted to go for lunch on my last day in town. I wasn't familiar with the area so I asked the woman working the desk at my hotel (The Lafayette) to recommend a place and she recommended Island Prime / c Level.

This place sits right above the water--amazing views and location! The bloody mary's are a meal in themselves! I have visited San Diego once a year for the past three years, and we always have at least one lunch while there.We have always been seated out on the covered patio. Service and food are great!

We enjoyed dinner so much and returned for another fantastic meal. The pot stickers were perfect, salad was excellent and generous portions. Had a relaxing afternoon watching the sea lions play as a small boat is fishing just out the window and don't forget to walk the property for a perfect skyline Kodak moment.

Excellent modern flair that's enhanced by great servers and a great view of the bay at night. Try the lobster BLT and the Peppercorn crusted brie.

C-Level Lounge was such a treat after a day of conference meetings at the Sheraton. It was a pleasant walk along the water from the hotel to the restaurant. The service was excellent, and the food was so, so good

The setting, right on the water, made for a very special lunch. Great menu (especially Sea Food Salad) very attentive staff made a memorable visit.

But that doesn't make up for the over priced, fairly decent food. Expected way more than a greasy lobster grilled cheese with very little over cooked lobster. I guess if I wanted good lobster I should have gone to the East Coast.
