Visited this place for the 1st time on a business trip, but the locals tell me they come here whenever possible. When in Rome, eat the steak! Very nicely done. The view is amazing if you're lucky enough to sit by a window (I wasn't so lucky THIS time). Can not wait to return.

Recently took some clients to dinner in San Diego, went to one of my favorite place there, Island Prime. With a harbor view that never disappoints, food that touches all the bases, and a staff that is committed to excellent service - how can anyone go wrong. Clients were extremely pleased, and James (our Server) put a cap on the... More

Island Prime and its connecting restaurant, C-Level, are both excellent. Island Prime for dinner and C Level for lunch. Make reservations because both are packed. I had the large cut of Prime Rib, which was excellent, and my wife had the scallops for dinner at Island Prime. Great view of the city and the Coronado bridge.

We went here just when the kitchen were closing. Allthough they let us in and served us the most exellent food with no stress😊We had a mignon steak, and it really melted in our mouths! The restaurant is also a short walk from Sheraton hotel, if you stay there. There are also taxi outside the restaurant.

We had lunch today with our daughter and what a wonderful experience. As soon as I sat down the hostess hurried to our table to let us know there was a table by a window that just opened (we didn't request one). That was great! Views of San Diego, the sailboats, the water...how fantastic. The menu is diverse and we... More

Gosh, I hate to have to give this feedback but it is a fair and balanced one nonetheless. We had reservation for 9 people at 6;30. Upon arriving, we did ask for a 10th seat and were accommodated...great. THen the service problems started. We warned in advance that separate checks would be needed for business reasons. At the end of... More

I always get a kick reading the comments of people complaining that Mexican food available on this side of the border just doesn’t taste like “real Mexican” food. In case you don’t know, Mexico is a very large country and as you visit different parts of it, the food also is different there. Just as when you order Chicken at... More
