Point Loma Restaurant Questions

Every time I go to Point Loma I eat at Point Loma Seafoods.

My question is how are these spots?

Umi Sushi

Hudson Bay Seafood

Pizza Nova

Club Marina (do they have food? Looks like a legit spot for a drink)

Old Venice (heard good things, how does it compare to other Italian in San Diego?)

The restaurant at The Pearl Hotel.

  1. I have not been to the Pt Loma location for Pizza Nova. However, if it is the same chain as the one in Solana Beach, their food is good for the price point. It kind of reminds me of a variation of Sammy's Woodfired Pizza meets CPK. Their garlic rolls are very buttery and garlicky, if you like that kind of thing.

    1. Club Marina for food..hee of the best dive bars in the La Playa area..

      1. Excellent food at the restaurant at the Pearl Hotel. Creative young chef.

        1. My one visit to Old Venice was bad enough that I'd have to be dragged back there. There is better Italian food at La Scala, though it's more the Americanized, red checkered tablecloth version. Still, their tortellini alfredo is quite tasty and very rich.

          1. Umi Sushi is a very popular sushi place. I'm not a big sushi person, but I've heard nothing but good things about it. I personally love thier California Rolls and thier eel sauce. The tempura is also yummy, especially the shrimp. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the Teryaki.

            Pizza Nova is a good restaurant with a great view. It was remodeled a couple of years ago and looks great. Friendly staff too.

            Hudson Bay Seafood is horrible. If you're going to do casual seafood, you might as well stick wtih Point Loma Seafoods.

            Old Venice has its good dishes and not so good dishes. It's not traditional Italian and it can be a bit expensive for what it is but it has nice ambiance in the main dining room and the bar. The back patio is in serious need of remodeling.

            The Pearl Hotel is an interesting place. The remodel is amazing and the chef is trying to be innovative. Not all of the dishes work for me, but there are some really good dishese on the menu and they use local and season ingredients.

            Two other places to consider that you did not mention are Roseville and Con Pane Bakery. They are accross the street from each other. Roseville is an upscale French restaurant that is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego (Cafe Chloe is still my go to place). The food is interesting and good. I've heard some people complain about the prices, which are definately not cheap, but they seem on par with the pricing of other similar restaurants and only slightly higher than Old Venice.

            Con Pane is the nieghborhood go to place for sandwiches and bread. On the weekends, friends and I will walk down for incredible cinnamon rolls and people watching.

            Pomodoro just opened on Scott street. I wasn't impressed with my first visit but it did have some high points. I will give it another try before i form a definate opinion.
