    My meal was incredible. Try the lobster bisque & citrus salmon w/coconut rice & green curry. For dessert, the upside down pineapple cake is a must have. One of the best desserts I’ve ever had.

    With the great view of downtown San Diego and the bay, combined with awesome food and atmosphere make C-Level is one of my favorite restaurants especially on a nice afternoon. Read more

    C Level was jammed so went inside for a great dinner at Island Prime. Even talked to Deborah Scott, Executive Chef for Cohn Restaurant Group. We had the best scallops and sea bass dish ever. Read more

    Even though its a sea food place, their pulled pork is so freaking delicious! So if you have been dragged here (or somehow ended up here) and you're not a sea food fan, this is an awesome alternative!

    I had the New York steak and it was the best I have ever had. My wife had the salmon. The pineapple upside down cake was truly amazing. The views are one of a kind. Great place for a special dinner.

    Beautiful views literally right on the Pacific. Best seafood, hands down! Classy digs and well trained staff. Reserve in advance or you will be disappointed and try to get a spot by a window to max it

    Excellent steak & seafood classics with a twist. Don't miss the roasted corn with shishito peppers or the popovers with jalapeno jelly butter. Ask for a table by the window for unbeatable bay views.

    beautiful spot to eat! Everything we got was delicious! Shared the brie, mac and cheese, and steak salad with my husband and we were stuffed! I want to go back for lunch of happy hour next time.

    Healthy fire skirt steak is so good I can't eat anything else. And it's huge so you can take half home for later. Lobster bisque is also to die for (according to my parents who love lobster bisque)

    Chocolate mud pie is coffee ice cream with chocolate ganache center and chocolate cookie base $12. Be the envy of all.

    If you can, get a seat in the patio right by the glass barrier in front of the bay. The view is amazing. The Day Boat Scallops are superb. The black and white sesame salmon is fantastic.

    Restaurant is right by the sea and the views of San Diego are amazing. In the summer, sit outside. Lobster mac'n cheese is popular, but it's too heavy.

    Get the seafood tower! The scallops were just ok - the risotto cake that came with it was too crispy and overcooked. Get the brussel sprouts and I dare you to eat just one of the popover rolls.

    Lobster Mac & Cheese is the bomb! Best time to go, in the evening as the San Diego skyline is beautiful from the patio.

    The lobster mac n cheese is well worth the $30. Especially with the view of the harbor and downtown. Perfect 4th of July spot!

    Come here for some Lobster Mac & Cheese and a great view of the San Diego skyline! Dogs are no longer allowed on the patio, so leave your four legged friends at home.

    I really don't even remember what I had to eat or if it was good - it was all about the view! The food did not "wow" me enough to be memorable, but my Stella was superb ;)

    Sitting on a Harbor Island patio at sunset, sipping an imaginative martini (the blackberry purée perhaps) and watching the downtown city lights flicker on across the bay. Give this C Level an A+.
