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
Nice ambiance and the staff was plesant . Great menus with ample variety and range. Everything was good except for the speed of food delivery. Took more than half hour after bread to get food. Waiter did not check back with us until I ask what was taking so long.
Desert also took forever to come from the kitchen. They did comp one desert due to all of delays, or so we thought. The water did say she was pretty new.
We were disappointed by this experience. We've been here before and it was so much nicer. They said they were really busy so cut off a lot of their menu choices (which we had been looking forward too) and weren't planning on doing bread service. I think management should have planned better since this was a Saturday going into their busy season. The ambiance is beautiful though and right on the bay.
I've had excellent food there before but the sushi roll we got was sub par at best and not what you would expect of a $17 dollar roll (the tuna on top was torn on the edges and not clean cuts and didn't taste fresh).
We love Oceana! We live in Pacific Beach and our friends hadn't been to Oceana since it reopened with the new name! The food was delicious (the filet mignon is the best and the sea bass was tender and flaky) Grady was our server and he was so knowledgeable about everything on the menu, including the wines! He was a delight!
You can't beat the location and view! Whenever we head to the Catamaran Hotel (Oceana) and sit out on the dining patio, we feel like we are on vacation!
The food was good. The service super slow. We got there before the couple after us and they gave them the better table served the before us. Even though the food was good their service was not very good. It was 3 of us and only 2 of them. I will never go back to get mediocre service for an expensive price.
Great breakfast - we went there twice during our stay at the hotel. Scrambled eggs done perfectly. Yogurt and fruit was a beautiful presentation and delicious. I had the steel cut oatmeal with glazed bananas which was a great way to start the morning. My only recommendation is to serve grape jelly - it's very popular!
While visiting San Diego my wife and I dined here with our two sons who are graduate students at UCSD. We had a table on the patio overlooking Mission Bay. The service was a bit slow, for which the waitress apologized and offered free desserts, but the pacing was fine since we were meeting one son's new girlfriend for the first time and the slow pace gave us plenty of time for conversation. The food was good and the setting is great. We will definitely be back on future visits.
Service was not as warm and welcoming as expected. There was a bit of carelessness when my Syrah wine was served with many visible pieces of cork in my glass.
The restaurant was not busy and there were many open tables, yet I was initially sat in one of the least preferred areas.
We had a delightful dining experience. The large covered outdoor patio with beautiful bay views made us feel like we were on vacation. We ordered the mango chicken sandwich and the swordfish torta. The swordfish torta was outstanding, full of flavor and quite a generous portion of fish. We will definitely be back!
I have eaten before at Oceana and loved the food. This time I ordered the wrong thing. I thought the panzanella was a salad as listed. It was bread soaked in something with bacon on top. Not my style of healthy eating. The seabass ceviche was very good and I enjoyed it very much.
My friend and I had the Cioppino. The seafood was luke-warm, but we didn't send it back because any additional heat would have overcooked the fish/shellfish. The sauce with the fish was terrible. Hard to describe, but it totally did not "go" with the fish. I have had coppino at many restaurants, and this one was awful
Ambience is exceptional. Food quality is seriously lacking. It is the food quality control that I would not recommend this restaurant to any one. What a shame! With a kitchen who cares, the could be one of the best places to go. We had two different meal experiences and both times the sauces were atrocious.
Our first visit to Oceana but it won't be the last. Our waitress, Debbie, was very friendly and knowledgeable and helped with menu selections. Wait staff was not over bearing or interruptive which was very nice. All in all, food was excellent and we now want to return to some of the other options for dining: patio and waterfront.
Any time I can get delicious jumbo shrimp and fresh sushi/sashimi at a Sunday Brunch I'm in heaven. While a bit pricier than the other Sunday Brunch spots in the area, they were very generous with refilling the champagne, and I loved the touch of ordering an entree in addition to the buffet. Everything was delicious!
We had the Sunday Champagne Brunch. We sat outside it had a beautiful view. There were many choices for seafood and sushi. Along with the buffet you can choose one of 8 entrees that comes with the brunch. There were a diverstiy of choices but I would prefer to have a few more choices for the buffet (waffles, crepes, eggs, etc). The service was outstanding, all the staff were really friendly and accommodating with our toddler. Even in the middle of the brunch the manager/host asked by my surname how my brunch was. Would definitely be back.
