    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!

    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

    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)

    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.

    The food here is amazing and the view is one of the best in the city. This place is a must for dinner if you are staying near downtown San Diego.
  • Christopher D.
    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.

    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.

    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+.

    Se recomienda que hagan reservacion previa por que es un lugar que siempre esta lleno y la espera normalmente es de mínimo 30 minutos. La comida es deliciosa y cuando es hora pico, el servico es lento
