Great food! Great atmosphere! Generous portions!
Lionfish is justly considered one of the best restaurants in San Diego. It is a seafood-forward restaurant with plenty of other options for anyone not in the mood for seafood. There are lots of raw options including sushi and sashimi. The portions were large and we could have easily taken half home. There is a large selection of wine, tequilas, mezcals, sake, beer and cocktails. It is a beautiful restaurant right in the heart of the Gaslamp district.
