Love this place. The food is great, service is wonderful, and the view is impeccable. They’re also located conveniently next to the airport so it’s a great spot to grab a cocktail before a flight!

Have a great steak dinner at Island Prime on Harbor Island and marvel at the amazing downtown San Diego skyline / view. Also you will be waterfront on San Diego's beautiful bay!

This is now one of my favorite places to go in San Diego. The service was great & the food was delicious. I definitely recommend the calamari, the dipping sauce is scrumptious. The icing on the cake was the view of the harbor & the sailboats passing by. If you come to San Diego or are a local I definitely recommend Island Prime.

Bayside at the tip of Harbor Island. This is one of the Cohen Bros best restaurants. You get unobstructed City views with the bay in front. Gorgeous at night. Delish food. Make a reservation!!!!

If you want an amazing meal, incredible wine, service and spectacular view this is the place. If you are on a budget, skip it - you pay for what you get.

C level (inside Island Prime) at happy hour is one of the most beautiful views of downtown san diego and can be very romantic!

You must go to this restaurant just before sunset and watch as this beautiful city comes alive with lights. Make sure to notice the red and green lights along the two hi risers in Little Italy the reason for the red and green it stands for the Italian flag.

Probably my favorite restaurant in San Diego. Another Cohn Group property. They have a more casual side called C Level, but either way you will spend some cash. It's worth it for a special occasion. On the water with great views. Next door is a sister restaurant called Coasterra - upscale Mexican.

A little bit on the pricey side but for the view and the food I believe it's well worth it. It doesn't matter what I've had here I've never had a bad meal.

Fantastic view right on the water. One of my favorite restaurants! Also try C-Level, in the same building. Sit on the patio and enjoy one of the best water and downtown views in all of San Diego. Amazing!

Either C-Level or the more upscale Island Prime. Either place has the most beautiful view of the city. Many times you can see the Navy Seals practicing.

Upscale dining at Island Prime, but one of the most amazing views to eat dinner or lunch from! You can also go to "C-Level" for a less expensive option which is also located at the same place.

One of the best locations in San Diego. This is a Cohen Bros' place and they do a wonderful job. Enjoy the dinning room or CLevel, the bar
