We wandered up the hill and stumbled across this lovely and un-crowded fourth-floor bar. I had a Jala-Berry Margarita, exactly what I had mind (but didn't know till I saw it0, and my husband had a local beer, and we watched the sun set over Little Italy, North Island, and across the bay to Point Loma. Heavenly!

Location...awesome...views beautiful. Too bad, I think we were a bother. Yes dear, please get up off your stool, we would like a drink! Our server must have had a bad day! She never smiled, and did not clear up a mess we pointed out to her. I dragged my arm through a large wet area on the bar. We warned... More

After a long day of travel, the perfect spot for that first San Diego dinner with a menu that met everyone's taste buds. Complimentary breakfast each morning was spot-on! Excellent views for a beverage before an evening out.

The view of the marina from the bar is great. The staff is friendly but the hotel is not that great for the value.

Restaurant is on top of a hotel in Little Italy and has a nice view. View of the bay is somewhat obstructed by other buildings but its still a nice view of downtown and seeing a distant sunset.

Average restaurant, with semi view of harbor through the buildings. Nice happy hour and reasonable prices....not huge selection of food but full bar. On the 4th floor of Porto Vista Hotel just off Hwy 5 in Little Italy.... not Italian...

The best part of the Glass Door Restaurant & Bar is the view. We visited for dessert and were disappointed. First they were out of the Bread Pudding and the Oreo Cheesecake is served in a small mug. The menu looks good and the view is priceless. We will be back soon.
