    My steak request for med-rare was over cooked as were the 2 chicken dishes orders. We were told that the kitchen was backup. First time in many years that the main dish were not up to their standards. Will I go back? YES. One bad day I can live with.

    We had a wonderful Anniversary Dinner at Sea 180. We reserved in advance and let them know it was our Anniversary and they reserved an outdoor view table for our occasion. The food was wonderful, our server was attentive, and the management was nearby to ensure we had a pleasant experience. There were several large parties that ordered in front of us that extended our wait time. The server was quick to offer delicious clam chowder while we waited which we much appreciated. The view and ambience was so romantic for a cozy dinner out. I would recommend Sea 180 to anyone looking for a romantic dinner with a view.

    Amazing beach view! Excellent food, the mussels delicious, good Cesar salad, ono entree yummy! Service very, very slow; staff was friendly and trying best, but clearly more kitchen and/or wait staff needed! We will give it another try.

    The service and views were amazing. Unfortunately, the food and cocktails were not up to par. We had the prime rib but only ate the mashed potatoes and the brussel sprouts were a bit too hard.

    Love the view here; right on the beach. Have been to date night in previous years when visiting Coronado and was always a great deal, however, this year we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! All four of us had different entrees and everyone commented how good it was. All had the Caesar salad to start which also was very good! House wine was OK!! Our server, Jesse was so very pleasant and efficient! Just a gem and we know how hard it is to find good help! She is an asset to the restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful evening! We will be back!

    The venue has a great ocean view that is hard to beat so they get 5+ for ambiance. Food is super yummy and Jordan out waiter was fantastic. I gave it a 4 stars for value for the annoying 4% they add to the bill and the valet parking increase from $3 to $10!?!?!!? What a rip off!

    Love this spot! Initially, the other managers at SEA180 were not being accommodating for my daughters' 21st birthday dinner and were rude. I made a reservation at a 2nd restaurant just in case. Persistence paid off! Tried one last time, I called on Saturday and Robert DeLuna helped me! Had our party at one table, parking was available with the hotel valet, customer service was great! An amazing night, so happy it worked out! Thank you Robert DeLuna!

    Restaurant was uncomfortable hot and we were not made aware of the broken a/c prior to seating. It took too long to be checked in with by server between seating to getting water, to placing order, receiving food then checking on food. There were so many employees walking around and a low number of customers so service shouldn’t have been so intermittent. The food was fine but not special. Fish and chips looked to be cooked in old oil which puddles on the bottom half of the fish. Fine, but not worth a trip back to IB for.

    Sea 180 is one of our favorite places. This was our first breakfast experience and we were very pleased. The venue cannot be beat....right o the beach. Staff is friendly and polite. It did get busy as by 11 am with the late breakfast/early lunch crowd so staff was stretched thin. Overall another great experience at this restaurant.

    My husband's birthday, my daughter and I came for the breakfast menu but they stop serving that at 11:30 am on Sunday. I wish I'd known I would have made an earlier reservation. Nothing really for vegetarians. We got humus which was blah and fries. My husband got the fish and chips, he said was just ok. I wish we left and went somewhere else. We had 3 mimosas and a nonalcoholic drink, hummus, an order of fries and the fish and chips came to over 86 bucks with tip over $100 for not very good food. The ocean view is nice. The service is attentive if that's your thing, I would go for a happy hour drive but the food is a no thanks. Go down the road for better food and drink at lower prices.

    We went to Imperial Beach for my birthday celebration. The menu choices were great and we were looking forward to a nice dinner but the timing of the food put a damper on things. We received our appetizers and prior to us finishing the dish, all our food came out at once and it felt rushed. We didn’t want the food to get cold especially for the price we were paying for all that food but I felt like I didn’t get to enjoy it. The server was great but I wish she could have seen that we were not done with the appetizers yet. I did not care for the Crab Rigatoni dish as it seemed like there was really no crab in the dish. The grilled octopus was absolutely delicious but I felt rushed to finish eating it. Overall it just felt rushed.
