Island Prime will offer you one of San Diego's best dining experiences. A terrific view, an exceptional menu, and fine service. However, be prepared to pay up for this amazing dining experience.

My husband and I had eaten on the outside deck (called the C-Level) for lunch one day and just loved the fantastic view of San Diego Bay. It felt like you could reach out and touch the boats. This restuarant hangs paritally over the water. And the food and menu options are purely a gourmet delight. We had french fries in a beautiful cone shaped container and lobster bisque and cobb salad that was absolutely great. $80 for lunch and 2 drinks each. I believe dinner is also served outside, too. Every thing they served was done in gourmet style and fashion. I heard that the Island Prime indoors had a different menu, but of course, was more expensive. So we chose to celebrate our anniversary inside Island Prime. A very beautifully appointed restuarant, there is not a bad view in the house. There are however, some booths to the rear that cannot see the water as well, but still there is a view. Fantastic service from the start. I've been to Ruth Chris and they have fantastic food, but I have been rather dissappointed in their service in the past and how loud it gets in the restuarant. When I'm dropping a couple $200 to $300 (I like nice wine), I want it all. And Island Prime delivers. Unbeliveable water and skyline view, fantastic service, and sublime food. I would reccomend C-Level for anytime you want to treat yourself and loved one(s) to to a delightful outdoor dining experience. And I would highly reccomend Island Prime (indoors) for those special occassions.

I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant. The food was excellent, the view on the water was even better. The atmosphere was amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed dining here. This is definately a restaurant to take someone to for a special occassion. Highly recommend!

C-Level is one of my favorite places to go in San Diego! The view is spectacular, along with the food. The best appetizer is the Lobster Artichoke fondue-yum!! I would highly recommend this place for a date night or to entertain out-of-town guests!

Their breaded Brie is amazing. Views are spectacular, food is good and the music is great. The decor is modern cool and the staff is friendly. Must come back for their $5 appetizers during 3-5pm.

OK, so I'm stealing their line - but it truly is one of the best views of the city sitting out on the deck at the C-Level. I take all of my out of town guests there and any business associates that have never been there. The view is fantastic - 9 times out of 10 we get a great waiter and the food is something extraordinary - although somewhat pricey. I highly recommend trying this place if you've never been - there is nothing like sitting by the water enjoying a gorgeous view of the city while eating some of chef Deborah Scott's specialties. Personal faves are the Brie appetizer and the Lobster Truffle Mac & Cheese.

You can't beat the skyline view, it's breath-taking! And it's all yours while you enjoy your meal. C Level has a ton of great wine flights to accompany their delicious food.
