I think this is where the "in crowd" goes to be seen eating a meal. It's all very cosmopolitan and chic. That said, I have NO complaints with the food-- it was good. I ordered the fish tacos-- yikes! There are 3 of them and they are giant. Split them with someone. They were delish. Valet parking available... which you... More

My friends and I stopped in for happy hour yesterday and had great service. The view is very nice, and the prices are good. I had the lamb chop balls, and a Malbec Graffigna. My friends shared small plates of calamari, shrimp and I believe fresh cocktails and sangria. The service is excellent and the views of the city is... More

My family and I went here for dinner on my birthday. The server was nice. The place has an amazing view. I would recommend to come during the day to take advantage of the view. We went at night and the city life was pretty but we wouldn't really see out since it was too dark. I recommend for all... More

I see why they call it C- Level. The food was bland at best. The seared ahi stack was borderline gross; it was pretty much canned tuna with cooked (not seared) tuna chunks. The chicken ziti was not a ziti and had no flavor. I forgot what my boyfriend ordered, but he did not enjoy it. This food was way... More

We took a drive down to San Diego for the day and finished the day here for dinner. What a great place! Ambiance, view, service and food! Watching the sunset and moon appear from their deck was great way to enjoy dinner! Portions and prices were fair and reasonable. Highly recommend!

You cannot beat the view of the city and bay. Perfect for a meal at sunset. Food is good and service is outstanding. Highly recommended.

I went here with a few people since it was highly recommended to us. I don't eat meat or fish so my selections were extremely limited. I ended up with a salad, which isn't really what you want for a main course if you're vegetarian. The salad was pretty good. The others had meat and fish items and said they... More

We walked on down to the restaurant from the Hilton...a very nice pre-dinner walk along the sea wall! We waited in the bar for only as long as it took to drink a glass of wine from their great selection. For dinner I had the salmon which was a nice sized portion, well prepared and served with nicely season smashed... More

We came for lunch to celebrate our anniversary. One nice thing at lunch is that parking is free (not so at dinner). And, since no reservations are taken, it is less crowded at lunch and easier to get an outside table. And then you get to watch the city, the Coronado bridge and all the sailboats while eating fabulous food.... More

An easy 5.... I had the wedge salad and cup of lobster bisque. The wedge is usually on the dinner menu but Cort made the exception....that is the kind of waiter I like. The bisque was full of lobster. My wife had the ahi stack which was also very good. We left very happy and followed up the meal with... More
