“Views to Dine For!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We decided, on the recommendation of a friend, to try C Level on Harbor Island across from the San Diego Airport. We arrived a few minutes before 11:30 for an early lunch and a line had already begun to form. When the doors opened promptly at 11:30 we were met by one of a gaggle of hosts who asked us if we preferred inside or outside dining. We selected inside and were promptly seated at a window that offered a panoramic view if the Bay, Coronado Bridge and Island, and the flight path of arriving planes. The view could not have been more awesome.

Our waiter, Bill took our drink order then explained the menu and specials. We opted to begin with cae cakes which were not only delicious but whose presentation included a delicious dip. Patti ordered warm baby spinach salad with blackened shrimp and I chose skirts on fire salad, beef work plenty of greens, avocado, and extra endemame. Both were full servings and filling, not to mention delicious. But wait, there's more!

Bill brought the desert me u which I was about to decline until he pointed out the Potted Brownie Banana Split, which consisted of homemade peanut butter ice cream over a warm brownie with butterscotch, fudge, and brûlée ed bananas. Scrumptious!

We enjoyed the lunch, the ambiance, and the view for early two hours and at no time did we feel rushed or that they needed to turn our table, even though as we left we saw there were several people waiting to be seated.

The only faux pas I noticed was at a nearby table when the diners had finished their appetizers the bus person took their plates away but removed the dirty forks and left them for the next course rather than replacing them with clean ones.

This was a superb first time visit and I well return.

“Best View of San Diego!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Great Salads... Order the Healthy Skirts on Fire salad if you can handle spicy. The Kobe Beef Burger is huge and super tasty. Service is always great.

Great scenery and great food. What else do you need? Lobster bisque and albacore tuna were some of the best I've had

“late afternoon into sunset bay view of skyline and sailboats”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We celebrated a friend's successful presentation at the San Diego Conference Center
before her flight back to NYC. This was just the right place:
very friendly service, light tasty food and extraordinary views and light breezes.

“Wow, what a view!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Love this place, food always good, a bit pricey but you should have to pay for the million $ view. Great stopover on the way to the rental car drop off...like the adjacent Prime as well but even pricier. Aircraft carriers going by as you're having lunch, pretty cool!
