Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

We went in on a busy Friday night and the place was packed. We only had to wait 15 mins before we were seated. The food came out very quickly and was hot and fresh. The portion size was great! Our waiter, Miguel, was excellent. It's got a nice atmosphere and Seaport village is a lovely place to stroll around. Well worth a visit.

“Solid Sea Port village choice”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

There are only a few real sit-down restaurants in Sea Port village; having had the time over a week's conference to check them out, the Harbor House may not get 5 stars when compared with higher-end city choices (and with Gas Lamp nearby there are a number of them), but for a decent lunch or dinner with a view of the harbor, HH is ok. Service is rapid, the menu is expansive enough but not too expensive, and the food is mildly flavored and fresh. A good-sized drink menu completes the picture.

“Really....view will not make up for poor food and not great service!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

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.
