I'm so glad my dear Sister floated me over to the C-Level on Christmas Day. She insisted C-Level was not some tourist magnet but was strongly favored by local powers-that-be, the yachting crowd, business execs and anyone who wanted to really unwind after a bouncy flight into nearby Lindbergh Field. I was very pleasantly surprised to dine with her overlooking a smooth San Diego Bay that mirrored the vast Downtown skyline, Coronado and the North Island Naval facilities. The sea level view contributed enormously to our enjoyment of that holy day.

We ordered our drinks and sampled from the restaurant's sea level, walk-in wine closet next to the bar. All entrees were rather expensive but the ambience proved their worth. I would have to travel to Alaska, so it seemed, to taste better salmon than C-Level provided. All the side dishes and unique salad and dinner rolls were outstanding. Service was brisk, friendly and responsive to our every whim regarding menu modifications or those little extras that you remember. But we were not rushed and were able to catch up on family business and recent travels. Parking was adequate and the small restrooms were fair. There was a huge, well-stocked bar.

Bottom line: Save C-Level for those special occasions or better - to relax on a quiet weekday. Float in and ask for a waterside table overlooking one of America's finest harbors. You'll not soon forget the incredible views and a perceptible "high" at C-Level.

It's a special treat to dine with a view of the SD skyline and water. Food is good with attentive service and so nice to be able to go to a restaurant in this town and have ample free parking.

Fabulous view of the city. Service top notch. Food always reliable. Especially love the Lobster Mac & cheese. Great place to meet for cocktails.

Consistently good food and one of the best views of downtown from across the bay. Our go-to place if we have to kill time around the airport.

Great waterfront casual outdoor dining in San Diego with a view of the bay, downtown skyline, across the bay to Coronado Island - you can't beat it. Wonderful menu, service, atmosphere, view and all around very nice restaurant experience. The only issue is the wait - since they don't take reservations. So here's a solution IF you have to go on a Friday or Saturday evening. Don't bring your heels - give the hostess your name, take the electronic pager and go for a walk along the baywalk. Come back in 45 minutes or so, and your table will most likely be ready. So you get two things in one: a little bit of exercise and a wonderful dining experience!
