Restaurant Review: C Level

 Located on the San Diego bay sits Island Prime and C Level restaurants.  C Level offers waterfront and outdoor dining during lunch and dinner. It is often packed so reservations are definitely recommended.  The lunch menu includes several offerings from land and sea and delicious cocktails that you won't want to miss. Starting with the Isle of Zen, Absolut citron, triple sec, ginger, lime, basil & mint. 

This drink is very refreshing. Try it with the Ahi, Crab and Avocado stack appetizer. 

Fresh crab, avocado, tomato, papaya-mango salsa on a sweet chili sauce and served with taro chips. Yummy! I prefer eating this sans taro chips while making sure I get a layer of each item on my fork. The flavors are so good together. 

The Pepita and Sesame Crusted Brie served with a jalapeno jelly, toasted bread and a green and apple salad. I was not a big fan of the crust on the brie but the brie was nice and oozing and tasted great on toast. 

The Lobster Mac & Cheese served with a green salad with candied walnuts left a little to be desired. While it was loaded with large chunks of Lobster I thought the sauce was a little on the runny side and not cheesy like a mac and cheese should be. It also lacked in flavor. A little salt & pepper would go a long way . 

The Lobster and Fontina BLT on a jalapeno cheddar sourdough and alongside some sherried lobster bisque for dipping.  I also thought the lobster in the sandwich could have used some seasoning. The lobster bisque was tasty, you can also order this in cup or bowl size. Something I would definitely do. 

If you are a salad eater my sister swears by the C Level Louie Salad, blue crab and rock shrimp on top butter lettuce, tomato, avocado, red onion, cucumber, egg and capers and a Thousand Island dressing. 

C Level is a nice place to enjoy the beautiful San Diego bay scenery. I would visit at night when the downtown lights light up the sky.  Remember if you visit in the evening it can get a little chilly next to the water so bring a coat.
