We come here every time we fly into SanDiego. This time I had the Crab Louie salad. Huge! More than one person could eat, or maybe not, burp. I can't say a bad thing about the place,

Last night in San Diego we all wanted the best experience to make a memory to last a lifetime. This restaurant did just that. The drinks, the food, the service, the view...(did I mention the view) were outstanding. Ending with a mile high mud pie that days later I am still thinking about.

Ice cold food, inedible fish that was cooked to death, and pretentious waitstaff that should be dismissed out of hand, Far better choices downtown, You get what you pay for and that is overpriced garbage.

I have visited C-Level three times, all of which have been occasions to catch up with old friends. The food is terrific (on this occasion, lobster-bacon sandwich, which was to die for) , but the most important part for me is that the wait-staff allowed me to sit and chat with my friend, who I hadn't seen in more than...

A fine dining experience without the stuffiness of some other establishments. Although I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for kids, it is great for business and pleasure meals alike. The service is excellent, and the food is great, plus add the benefit of it being on the water with beautiful views of downtown San Diego.

The atmosphere was great and the views of the city are spectacular! It was very busy, but we did not have to wait. We went at 7. It did seem to get busy after that

Beautiful view of the city and bay and great food. We had the ahi tuna stack which was delicious, and several had the Sea bass. It was served with a pineapple salsa that was very tasty.

Reservations are recommended for dinner, and only valet parking is available in the evening, but it is reasonable. We were seated outside by request. The view of downtown is impressive, and at sunset, the lighting kept changing and was picture worthy, and reason enough to go. But the food is good too. Mostly seafood, not surprisingly. Some had the Louie... More
