Located in the heart of the Gaslamp, there’s no need to search further for excellent seafood. Have been here many times since its opening a couple years ago, and have explored the menu quite a bit; have really enjoyed everything I’ve tried! Great service. If you dine at the bar, Arozo is an excellent bartender/waitress and a pleasure to be around. Favorite dishes would have to be the grilled octopus and the scallops. Highly recommend giving Saltwater a try!

While visiting San Diego for a conference, we found this place which happen to be a gem. Service by our server and rest of the team was superb, place was more quiet than the other places which we preferred due to the chaos in other places. Food was amazing from the start to finish. Recommend this place 100% and probably will visit again when coming back for a next conference.

This is a good spot in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego for seafood! The lobster mac-n-cheese is really good
They have happy hour daily, as well, from 4-6pm
