Had the crab fondue, Louie salad and special of the day surf and turf. All excellent and generous portions. Asked for a bit more dressing to make it perfect for me.

First time to C-Level. Sat outside against the glass overlooking the harbor with a beautiful view of downtown. My wife and I had a great time. The food, service, and atmosphere where awesome. I had the skirt steak salad and my wife had the Mediterranean bowl. We started these main entrees off with sharing a lobster bisgue then finishing them with a shared creme brulee. And with a couple of cocktails the night was complete. Avery, our waitress, was on point all night with anything we needed for our 15 year wedding anniversary celebration.

From start to finish, it was a dream. Everyone we're so nice. Old school decor taken from old resort of yore! Great service. The drink selection was really cool, a vibe of end of summer. Great Bourbon selection. All food items we're fresh and tasty. The corn and jalapeno salad was such a great idea, sweet and spicy. The Wagyu burger was out of this world. Awesome carrot cake, delicate! On topof all that, we we're able to buy Chef Blais BBQ sauce.

Wonderful surprise, as a French woman I loved this place, they honored French Cuisine. The bread, " la baguette" is amazing, the only difference would be in France you have your bread and butter when you start to eat. Really good service and the staff take care well of customers. Bravo ;) Really good adress

This restaurant is a must for us when visiting the coast. Outdoor dining, sunset views, excellent service, creative seafood entrees, and extensive wine list. What more can one ask! This visit our friends from San Diego joined us. They equally impressed. Special mention to our waitstaff, Jules.

Everything was fantastic except the noise level. I am not a stodgy librarian - I understand music adds to ambiance, but this music was so oppressively loud it was a struggle to hear my date. All they have to do is turn the main down a tad, back off that bass and it would be my new favorite place in San Diego.

No disappointment here. Food was very good, service was excellent and the ambience can't be beat. I had the BLTA with chips. The best I have had. My wife had the omelet which was also good. I strongly recommend the restaurant.

Friendly attentive service from Lewis. A great place to celebrate my friends' birthdays. Thank you for the beautiful birthday desserts - my friends were surprised and very pleased. My friends' entrees looked good (and they said tasted good). They got different breakfast egg scrambles. I was glad since it was their birthdays. My entree had rice (loco moco) which was overcooked/mushy and the dish was a lukewarm stack of egg on burger on mushy rice, so my food experience was negative. Despite my bad food experience, the terrific service, birthday desserts, and lovely atmosphere dining alfresco made our dining at Veranda a good one.
