I don;t know why anyone would recommend this place....ordered a filet....over done....I must say ...this was just awful.......no flavor.. over done vegetables......no one came back to the table and even asked how was the food ......so I was stuck with it.....and did not want to make a scene....finally I went to the front and told the hostess how bad it was and they were astonished ....but did nothing........I honestly can not think of a time that I have had such a horrible dinner!

Don't go there!!!!!!!!

The Harbor House is in the Seaport Village in San Dieo, its set over looking the harbor and has fantastic atmosphere. The meals were well presented and service great. We went with a large group and they handled it well...I was impressed.

Nice place, and good food. Good service and decent prices. The place is on piers over the water and really looks like an old harbor house. Views are incredible. Take a stroll in Seaport Village after your meal.

Do NOT eat here!! THIEVES!

My friend and I went here for New Years Eve dinner for a good experience. The food was way overpriced but we were treating ourselves so we did not mind. The food was okay. The service was just okay. The waiter, Nick, was formerly in the military and was chatting with me and my friend because we are active duty. He seemed nice. When the bill came it was $67.67 which is not bad. I gave the server my card to pay and he came back apologizing because he charged my card on "accident" for double the amount, which I was told was reversed so, okay. Mistakes happen. I then gave him another card (just in case of another screw up) and thought everything was fine so I signed the receipt, tipped the waiter and left. I checked the second account today and it turns out they did it AGAIN and didn't tell me! I have now paid $293 for a meal!!!! Horrible horrible thieves! I will NEVER go back! I just got off the phone with them and they were defending the waiter who screwed up! I told them I was coming over there with my proof to discuss this and the waitress's response was "well you can come in but I'm not gonna say you'll get your money back" so I told them I would be there to get my money or I will involve police because that's theft! She tried telling me that the transactions may have already been reversed but the transaction is still pending and you can't reverse it when its still pending! HORRIBLE OVERALL EXPERIENCE. WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS!!!
