Island Prime C Level

Outstanding Lobster Mac & Cheese at Island Prime – C Level! Situated on San Diego’s Harbor Island, the views are exquisite.

Brigantine Seafood

Exquisite Parmesan Crusted Sautéed Sand Dabs with risotto and broccolini at the Brig in Poway!

Tom Ham’s Lighthouse

Second visit to Tom Ham’s. Absolutely stunning views and an exceptional setting on Harbor Island. Unfortunately the food part is still somewhat shaky. My Crab BLT came without the B! The clam chowder is still not served hot; plus has corn in it which is just off putting. I’ll order something different next time. Maybe brunch.

Panorama Bar & Grill

Incredibly disappointed with Panorama. I had high hopes for this restaurant; studying all of the Yelp photos and whatnot. Unfortunately this place no longer carries many of the items seen in photos there. I’m not sure what happened. First, the menu is severely truncated. All of their salads, appetizers and entrees comprise literally 11 items on the menu. That’s it. I ordered the fish & chips and it looked and tasted like snack bar food. Heinz Ketchup packets atop the plate was quite tacky. My wife had the burger and it tasted like it was boiled. Really surprising that we had to make “reservations” to dine here. The setting is quite stunning, right on the marina with great views. I have to say though, it’s a big fail in the culinary department.

King’s Fish House

Excellent salmon cake at KFH in Mission Valley! I could have used fewer greens on top but it was pretty.

Brigantine Seafood

Outstanding Cioppino at the Brig in Poway! This hearty, flavorful seafood medley is my favorite thing to order there. Highly recommended.

Gordon Ramsay Steak

Stunning Beef Wellington and a butter poached lobster tail at Gordon Ramsay Steak, inside Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino!

Chicken Charlie’s Table

Tasty fish and shrimp basket at Chicken Charlie’s in Rancho Bernardo!

Cheesecake Factory

Outstanding Fish & Chips lunch special at Cheesecake Factory in Esco!

Big Fin Seafood Kitchen

Big Fin is a one of a kind restaurant located in the Dellagio Town Center along Orlando’s famous “Restaurant Row”. The place is stunning, huge and has great service. Everyone was so nice. I ordered the Shrimp & Grits. The presentation looked like a hot mess but it was such a combustion of flavor. Highly recommended.
