This is a great restaurant. We arrive a little late in the evening and were put on a waitlist. Only waited about 10 minutes. There is another restaurant sort of attached to the C-Level, but it's easy to sort out. We were seated in the outside area, overlooking the inlet. and facing the city. This was an excellent table.

Visited this restaurant for lunch while extremely hungry...lol! What a pleasant surprise. This restaurant is located on the marina, has indoor and patio seating. The food was delicious and the views were stunning. We started with Calamari, it was cooked and seasoned well. I then had a grilled fish sandwich with fries. The fish was cooked perfectly, not overcooked. The... More

Have been here several times before. Noticed prices had edged up and quantities cut back. Shrimp spinach salad good, but only four small shrimp. Baby spinach delicious. Companion liked lobster/white fish sandwich. Bartendress knowledgeable of wines and made good recommendations. Wrong salad was ordered and when we finally got her attention she said that she knew I had ordered spinach,... More

Visited early on Saturday evening about 4:50. Perfect time to get great table by the window. Restaurant overlooks harbor and downtown San Diego. Not a coastal view but very pretty. Green salad with cashew, pomegranate, and goat cheese crostini (sans red onion for me) was perfection. Especially with pinot. Macadamian crusted mahi mahi came with beautiful pineapple salsa with seabeans.... More

Visited the restaurant and I was not disappointed. The view is heavenly. Food was ok. The lobster bisque was a little sweet for my taste. It was happy hour so got couple of drinks at half the price. Definitely recommend it if you are visiting, if anything just for the view.

We went for dinner with a group of 14. We tired to make a reservation, unable to do so. So we waited about an hour for a table. The bar was crowded and full, so we went next door the Coaster Bar, which had ample room. For dinner at Level C we had fresh oysters ( ice cold ..yum), onion... More

I eat here often with my wife. We always love it. Burgers, salads, drinks. Always great. Last time I went I had the Shrimp and crab Louie salad and my wife had the Shrimp scampi. Great.

On the water with scenic views the C-level Lounge is a fabulous place to dine. The food and drink menu is diverse. We ordered blackened fish tacos and a salad with blackened shrimp. Everything was excellently cooked and served. Our server was cordial, yet very professional. Our drinks were made perfectly. We went at lunch time, yet waited less than... More

First of I have to say that if you are looking for a romantic dinner location while you are in the city this is a great choice. The views of the city at and after sunset from this restaurant are absolutely beautiful. You definitely understand why San Diego is "America's Finest City." I have come here a couple times over...
