About Oceana Coastal Kitchen
Waterfront San Diego Dining
Oceana Coastal Kitchen features chef-driven, California cuisine as well as a modern, ocean-inspired design. The brand new restaurant offers a memorable bay-front dining experience at an iconic Pacific Beach hideaway.
Ranging from casual to upscale, the airy waterfront restaurant includes several distinct dining areas such as a quartz-topped cold bar embedded with mother of pearl and sea glass. The focal point in the main dining room is an impressive 800 gallon aquarium, soon the home to fluorescent tropical jellyfish, while a sliding window fully opens to showcase unobstructed views of Mission Bay.
Oceana Coastal Kitchen offers an all-new alfresco experience for guests, complete with sleek booths and tables with sweeping panoramic waterfront views, along with an adjacent lounge featuring flickering flames from tiki torches and lava rock fire pits.

Oceana Coastal Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Though the food, waiter and ambiance was excellent, we will never return to this restaurant. We took family who was visiting from out of state and after 90 minutes as we were finishing our dessert the matre d came and told us the table was reserved for someone else and we needed to leave!!!! There were several other open tables around us that could have accommodated another party. Bad Business!!!!

We live in the neighborhood and eat here often (especially when all the tourists go home in September!). The staff is always happy to see locals stop in. Excellent quality of ingredients and probably some of my favorite fish ceviche.

We were on vacstion in Mission Bay, California. There were four adults and 2 children. The food was incredible and the staff friendly, knowledgable and responsive . We sat outside on the patio. My shrimp parparadel was cooked and seasoned perfectly. All in all a wonderful experience.

Our waiter was fabulous. He was the best part of our night. The view is spectacular, absolutely lovely and romantic. I planned dinner during the Sea World fireworks, and we would have THE most incredible view, but the Bahia Belle ship was at the dock and blocked the whole thing. I think it would be better all around if the ship was out in the bay watching fireworks, and diners could.as well.
It was a Friday, so it was luau night. Just know that kids will be running around playing, and this may or may not damage your experience. The luau gets out and everyone is dumped basically on the terrace at the same time. Loud and rowdy for a bit there.
The food was good I would not call it great or spectacular. Our steaks were not cooked as requested, I believe they switched the order between my husband and I. To be fare, we did not complain. My husband hates complaining of it is not a big deal nor he can da with it.
One note, the fillet with blue cheese butter was really, really good. I'm a bit of a purist and generally don't eat sauces on my steak. So good though!

Celebrating our anniversary; the view of the bay was great. We had a very relaxing dinner. Food was very good and the service was great.
Definitely worth a return trip. Live music just added to the experience. Very nice.
Parking was free with validation. No problems or complaints.

When they say brunch goes to 2:00, and I confirm with them on the phone that they will still be serving brunch at 2:00, when we get there and are very curtly told that brunch is over, it's very disappointing!! Especially on Fathers Day. Especially when we could plainly see people helping themselves to the food on the buffet. Emailed both General Manager and Food Mgr but no response from either.

Just celebrated my 8 year anniversary, my reservation was at 8pm. The staff was great, the food was outstanding, the seating area was perfect we had
the jelly fish tank on one side, beach side view on the other... a great view for the fire works display from SeaWorld I would highly recommend this place to anyone celebrating their anniversary.

This is the second time we have been there for Sunday brunch. They offer one of the best Sunday brunch in San Diego. We have been to the Hotel Del and they have a great brunch as well however, this place offer the better view. Very offering is top quality from the raw oysters to the cook to order entre. Thank you Rich for keeping our glass full with mimosa.

Overall, we enjoyed every dish here. However, if I had to be picking or gave advice for improvement, I hoped the White Sea bass could be a bit tender. The waterfront view is relaxed and fantastic. If you come to dine later during summer, you can probably watch the fire works from Sea World. There was a party / function set up at the adjacent lawn which was a bit noisy and blocked the open view. On the other side of the lawn, there was a Hawaiian dance set up. However, the Hawaiian dance is a bit far away from the restaurant, so the happy Hawaiian music blended in as nice background music.
Great view, food disappointing
Service and waiting staff were outstanding however the fish and mango starter marinated in lime was slimy and had an overpowering taste of lime and we were unable to eat it. The scallops were good and the smoked pork dish was ok, but overall the food was bottom of the list of 11 meals out in California whilst on holiday. This was a shame as the setting is beautiful and the service excellent
go for view not the food
We both had the hamburger which waitress said was great. Mine was overcooked and it was not great. We enjoyed our beers and the view of the bay. Also went because we had $50 card to try the restaurant and then when I removed card from mailer to use it to pay our bill, I saw on back that you had to spend $100 to use the $50--I felt scammed. This information should have been printed on mailer and not on backside of card. Shame on you. Not a way to attract customers. Chef is supposed to be talented. Maybe not on duty at lunchtime?

We were looking for a nice Sunday brunch buffet and were disappointed that it was really just a breakfast menu. Food selection was somewhat limited but food was good. The day was overcast so we ate inside and didn't get to enjoy the outdoor patio and bay ambiance...our choice.
This is a better choice for casual lunch or dinner.

Our bar experience while waiting for our reservation was outstanding. The bar staff was fun and outgoing. They also made us custom shots which was super fun! Our table service was so so. The waitress kept putting us off and forgot my water until I had to ask another staff member. She wasn't very social or happy. Next time I would honestly eat in the bar instead! Overall the food was to die for!

Fabulous food, drinks, and atmosphere on the outdoor patio! We had a group of 7 to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and we all really enjoyed Oceana Coastal Kitchen. The menu has something for everyone - from seafood, to sushi, to steak. Their cocktails were delicious and the outdoor covered patio was beautiful with a view of the bay.
