The location of restaurant is set on the water front which was really pretty, as well you can see the wonderful San Diego Skyline. There were only a couple of things, that I could praise about the dinner at Island Prime on Thanksgiving. There was a set menu for Thanksgiving, instead of their normal menu. Dinner Price $54.95 1st Course... More

This is one of those places where you get humongous servings for humongous prices. Everything is A La Carte. The sides are big enough for 4 people. Their bread is interesting, rather like a Yorkshire Pudding, crisp and crunchy on the outside, but fluffy inside. We ordered the Lobster Mac, which was delicious. My nephew ordered the Bone-in Ribeye and... More

We were celebrating an anniversary with friends and our experience was great. The food was very good and after most of the tables around were empty, the noise level was much better for conversation. The gorgeous view helps make the atmosphere.

Great location overlooking the city. The food was good and interesting, the service attentive but not overpowering. Had a nice bottle of wine and a relaxed time. It was busy so booking is recommended but we managed to walk in and get a great table next to the window.

We've eaten at this combined bar/restaurant two or three times each year for four years now. Each and every time has been good, consistent food, coupled with great service. The varied menu has something for everyone. And of course the view; overlooking the harbor, is so beautiful. We love this place!

Short wait to get us a large table, tasty Margaritas, lots of different items ordered. Everyone was quite happy with their meal(s) - of course the 'Ritas might have had something to do with that! Excellent service, quick refills, great view.

The food, service, and view were excellent. The waiter was prepared and very knowledgeable. We appreciated that he did not say that all of the food items were good, but rather detailed how different items might appeal to different tastes. The portions are very large so be careful not to over-order. In particular, the starter salads are huge. The twice-baked... More
