“Great place to watch the sun set”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Ate here on a Sunday evening. Line to get seated but it moved quickly. Great table with unobstructed view of the water. Great food and good service. A little pricey for what you get but you are paying for the view. Would definitely eat here again if visiting San Diego.

“lunch at the fish market”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

ended up here quite by accident as I had an hour to kill between my south bay cruise in the morning and my whale watching tour in the afternoon and was looking for some place to eat. It was a very upscale restaurant but reasonable prices. I had a wonderful sole accompanied by a superb glass of Californian white pinot noir. The food was superb, the service was somewhat slow but that could be explained by the timing and the luncn crowd. It is not a restaurant for a rushed lunch as my waitress explained but I was in a hurry to get back to queue up for my whale watching tour. Excellent food!

“Excellent Fish Tacos”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had a great table right out by the water and enjoyed the beautiful ambiance. We both had the fish tacos and they were delicious. The restaurant was packed but the service was very good. Prices are very reasonable considering the fantastic location.

“Poor service”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Disappointed with the service. The main course came just as we had gotten our entrees. The waiter just shrugged and put them on the table where they got ice cold as we hurried to finish our entrees. So the food was fine, but cold.
