We stumbled upon Seasalt, enjoyed our dining experience and keep coming back. We have introduced several of our friends to Seasalt and they will be coming back. It just keeps getting better and better. Sonny, our waiter, was terrific!

Seasalt is a fun restaurant with an interesting menu. They have reduced alcohol drinks which are unusual and we really enjoy it. We go there regularly as a sort of last minute option and we always enjoy the food and the ambiance...sometimes the service is a little slow...

Was not overwhelmed with the dining experience. Made reservations and was hoping for a table on the patio for better ambiance, but was seated inside next to bar. It was not loud, but frustrating that patio tables were open the entire time we were there to eat. The hospitality of the server was OK, not over friendly, but did her job. The guy refilling water glasses was actually more friendly than our server. The food gets the highest score; from appetizers to desserts, the food was great and fairly priced. Not sure I would recommend it to work colleagues for business dinners, but might come back myself and give it another try.

They do it right - small but tastefully decorated (warm) with a lovely view of the estuary across the street. Wonderful fish - creative but not over the top. Small wine list but we've always found something we like. On the other hand there are a lot of choices on the menu and it is sometimes hard to pick one. The deck (covered and enclosed) can get noisier than the inside area by the bar so you choose between the view of the water or having it quieter.

Wonderful view of the water. We were there on a hot sunny day for lunch, and we were sweating sitting outdoors. They would benefit from adding umbrellas or some sort of shade on the patio. Food is delicious and fresh.

It was a nicely decorated restaurant and the patio was decent. I thought the rice in the salt shaker was a bit tacky for a restaurant that looks upscale. I mean, you see stuff like that at a Chinese Buffet. My husband enjoyed his steak and his fries were tasty, however, my seared scallops were cooked to perfection, but the sauteed bell peppers and onions just ruined the flavor of the risotto and the scallops. I love bell peppers and onions, but it didn't go well with the risotto & scallops. The service was a bit slow to begin with, but our food came out pretty fast. I don't think I would return here, maybe for happy hour.

Good location, views, patio dining but just one option for vegetarian dining which is not surprising for a Sea Food restaurant but having more options can be helpful for person like me to bring others to this restaurant. Pricing seems to be bit on higher side but overall good experience with great service. No issues with parking either.
They do take Passport discount card which helped me saved on the lowest priced entree. This is one of the reasons I went to this place.

3 hour lunch was no problem... my friend was visiting from out of town and we sat for hours "catching up." The swordfish sandwich was not as good as I remembered. It was crowded and louder than I remember. Parking can be a bit tricky, but the service was impeccable and welcoming.

I had read the reviews and they were mixed. Most everyone said the food was good, but service was lacking. Unfortunately we found the same. Never found out our servers name till I looked at it on the bill. Only checked once to see how the food was through three courses. Ice tea and water glasses were never refilled. Too many places to go to in San Diego and will not be back.

We stopped by just by chance as the restaurant we planned to go to was closed. We tried Seasalt and we were floored. Amazing ambiance, fabulous food and great attentive service. It's our new favourite place and we are going there again tonight!

Great Dungeness crab cakes and inventive and wonderful sea scallops. No complaints about the food at all. The restaurant wasn't that busy but yet not enough staff that I waited 25 minutes for my appetizer, never saw any bread (unlike tables that had 2 or more folks) and another 15-20 minute wait for entree. Never asked if I cared for,another drink and never asked how anything was.

We enjoyed the fish entrees that were ordered and took the leftovers home.
My husband and I enjoy the artichoke appetizer prepared with roasted garlic.
The New England style chowder is fabulous and served very hot (temperature).
Our friends liked their dinner - it was their first time dining there.
The owner, Sal, gave us a complimentary dessert - yum!
We will go back there again - It's one of our favorites!

Our food was OK. The only plate that stood out was he fish and chips.
Service was terrible. Our waiter was.......elsewhere. Never brought the bread and when we asked, he brought it after we finished eating. Maybe bread is good with...ice cram.
We also brought two bottles of our own wine. When we asked him to open the second one
he took forever, so we opened it by ourselves. And we were....charged....!!!!
Even the check came 14 minutes after we asked for it.
The tables next to us were lucky. They had a waiter that was on top of everything.
My wife did not finished her plate and nobody asked why. Let it stay a mystery.....!
Don't think I will go back, at least for sometime. Our friends said the same.
I wish the service (and food) was better because the location is amazing.

I had just delivered 29 Boy Scouts to Fiesta Island for a week of summer camp. I decided to celebrate by having dinner at Seasalt that was just around the corner from where we were staying. It was a great choice. I had the fried calamari as an appetizer and then chioppino as a main course. Both were fresh and flavorful. Couple the food with a great view of the lagoon from the patio made for a great meal. A good place for seafood and sushi with great service and ambience.

SeaSalt is just meh. The service is generally slow, which is the most annoying thing about this restaurant. The food is middle of the road, but some of it is pretty good. The view is really great, across the lagoon to the ocean. There is ample parking, too, which is nice in this neighborhood. We went for lunch and had Sushi. This is not a good place to get sushi. They have a separate sushi menu, but on the regular menu is a sort of incompatible list of mediterranean seafood-centric pasta dishes and the like. That menu is pretty good; maybe not exactly a value, but you are also paying for the view.
I recommend this place mostly for the view, but the non-sushi menu is good, too.

My wife and I went to Seasalt for a Wednesday night date night sunset dinner. We were pleased to be seated at a table right next to the window so would have had a great sunset except for the marine layer. Regardless, the view was exceptional and we enjoyed it greatly. The food was pretty good but not exceptional. I had the crab cakes which were good as well as the ciaopino which I enjoyed but would have preferred a little better seasoning. The service was probably the best part of the experience. Our waiter, I apologize that I forgot his name, was on point throughout the night. Everything I expect from a waiter. Overall the night was a great experience. I will likely return to enjoy Seasalt again.

Great place to go for lunch or dinner. I have been here twice and have been impressed both times. The food is fresh, diverse for all pallets and reasonably priced. I will find more opportunities to visit again. Great job guys!
