Why we love it

Executive chef: Deborah Scott

Sweeping water views and creative seafood, like everything-crusted ahi and a lobster and fontina BLT, set this bayside charmer apart. Not to mention a shaded patio, complete with heaters and a fireplace, which might be the prettiest outdoor dining space on Harbor Island.

    The food and ambiance were both just so mid. My least favorite dining experience of our trip. Our Caesar salad came out full of gross brown lettuce we sent it back, they remade it better with fresher lettuce but it was so brown it never should have been sent out of the kitchen in the first place. The other food was just mediocre. There were gnats all around our table. Would not recommend especially considering the other amazing dining option in SD

    Been there many times over the years and always enjoyed the food and the views. This last Sunday was the worst experience we have ever had. Had to wait 15 min for a server to even come to our table after we sat down, and then told us it was not his table. Ordered right away since no one had come over for so long... Waited 10 minutes more for a wine glass. He only brought 1 even though we ordered two.. but then .he left with the one and walked around with it and said he would be right back. Five more minutes later returned with the one glass and disappeared again for 5 more minutes with second glass.. The chardonnay was warm. Then brought a shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were warm and no ice in the dish, and very little cocktail sauce. Gave up asking for more. Never got a refill on the water even though we drank the entire glass each. The server disappeared and never reappeared until bringing us the bill and then repeated it was not his table. We each had an ahi stack and it was good as usual. First time in my life left no tip. They now automatically add 5% to the bill for whatever reason even with menu prices up 20% from a year ago. Not what we expect from CRG.

    Great little anniversary celebration on the patio overlooking the bay. Really nothing like it in San Diego. Large portions, excellent food and service as usual.

    Poor food quality. Poor cooking of meat. Poor service in general. Not worth the high price for sure.

    Besides a great view of the SD skyline, ambience in general is nothing special. Food was very good; a bit pricey (but you're paying for the view). Tables are very close to each other. Our round table of 6 was right next to the server station, so there were servers walking back and forth behind us constantly. I recommend because the food is good and it has a great view (if you're sitting in a way where you can see it).

    Had to wait way too long for valet only parking. Had a handicap placard displayed so they could have parked me right up front in a handicap stall. Had reservations yet had to wait almost 15 min beyond to be seated. Way overpriced. The extra 5% service charge to offset the restaurants expenses is rediculous! These costs like minimum wage increase, etc needs to be absorbed by them not me. Waitress was very friendly and prompt to our needs. Draft beer was served in a warm glass so lost its coldness very quickly. Will not return as there’s much better for the price out there.

    The problem was, due to a boat show, we were forced to wait 30 minutes for a valet to park us. Then another 40 minutes to find our car. Three valets working. Not good for restaurant business. Turned us off. But our server was fantastic!

    Overall experience was great due to the view and ambiance. Service was ok, not much greeting or saying goodbye when we left. Food was ok, could be better for the price point.
