    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

    Everything was just perfect! Except 2-hour waiting for the table. Picture: the best tuna in my life. Want to taste it again.

    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.

    Mud Pie was to die for..!!

  • Berk K.

    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.

    Drink shots at the bar then take a taxi to North Park and buy some Jordan's at Overload

  • Jose B.

    Have the Lobster bisque

    Jose Breaux · July 15, 2014
  • Chris L.

    Order the fish tacos. Best you'll find not out of a truck!

    Chris Lucas · May 13, 2014
  • Lynn P.

    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.

    We are enjoying a Wonderful Dining Experience. I suggest Dinning at the C Level Lounge. The Patio is Awesome as well. HAPPY DINING EVER ONE! ;)

    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)

    Lettuce wrap was good. Portions seem huge for one person. Views are excellent!

    Pooja · December 25, 2013
  • Jazmen M.

    The view is beautiful and would recommend coming here for drinks but not the food. The food tasted mediocre. Definitely needs work. Thankfully the service is up to par w/the view.

    The oyster Rockafella is the best a must have!!

    Outside tables for a great view of San Diego skyline. Try the Tuna Melt.

    Love the seared ahi and the trio-creme brulee dessert.

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

    Gloria D'Amico · September 22, 2013
  • Markus H.

    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 ;)

    Markus Hill · September 17, 2013
  • Tawmis L.

    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!

    Tawmis Logue · September 1, 2013

    Lobster Mac n cheese is divine.$5 happy hour drinks (try the scallywag or the sangria) with Kemo sabe's but crusted Brie.

    Michele · July 19, 2013
  • Brian T.

    Come for the view (amazing) and enjoy the food (delicious). Such a winning situation.

    Brian Torpey · July 8, 2013
  • 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.
