Had walked past this place a couple of times and on our last day gave it a go and it was the best meal we had during our stay in San Diego. My wife had sushi and it was fresh and very good and I had the chowder and also mussels. Everything tasted amazing. The staff were quick with the... More

Ate here with a convention group for lunch. Terrific fish, soups and salads. Others had sushi. Pricey, but the location can't be beat.

We came for lunch twice. The food is good, nice view of the harbour, friendly staff. The second time the place was busy (not crowded, though) and we had to wait more than 1 hour before we were served. Better come early!

I was seated promptly, then they forgot about me. I had to get up and ask for service, and the restaurant was NOT busy. Once I actually got their attention, service was prompt. The clam chowder was THE BEST I have had, the crab cake was not ordinary either.

I have been to this restaurant several times now with friends and every time it never displeases. The wait staff are super friendly and the food is amazing. The fact that it sits overlooking the Marriott Marina isn't too shabby either. It makes for a boaty relaxing time for everyone! Parking is validated at the Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel and... More

There are many choices for seating here: At least three inside dining rooms, including the bar, and a huge patio area as well, overlooking San Diego Harbor. There is a full bar, a sashimi menu, and a regular menu. I can vouch for the sea bass...delicious! The extensive wine menu had something for every taste, and many selections by the... More

When we tried to book, the earliest we could get in was 8:45pm.My husband and I were very excited as we've travelled to the US often during this season but have never had a traditional TG dinner. Upon arrival we were informed by a very... More

Sally's was a lovely find on the bayside, with great outdoor seating in the sun. Felt a little under dressed compared to the other diners, but nothing was said by the waiting staff. Great beers.
