Ironside Fish & Oyster
Good as always
This is one of my favorite seafood spots in Little Italy and the fact that it's not an Italian place doing so well is testament to how good it is. Their fish is good but they are really known for their oysters. If you're a part of two they will put you on the high tables near the bar and the seats are comfortable but be aware that the seats do move so if you've had one too many cocktails you will be surprised!
Great food, great service
Excellent seafood, cool decor and jazz music. What's not to like?
Our waiter was one of the best EVER! Food was awesome
Great food, vibrant crowd!
They're so friendly and considerate. We didn't get our server for a bit, and they didn't realize because it was a change of shift. They were overwhelmingly apologetic and gave us a delicious plate for free! Their drinks are delicious, and of course, the food is amazing!
This was fantastic ! Loved everything about my experience. It can be hard to snag a reservation but that should just tell you how popular it is !
Fabulous as always!! Best seafood in town!!💯
Had the oysters with fresh Uni. The swordfish was amazing.
Had a great dining experience, our waiter, Sloan, was amazing and attentive to our needs! I will highly recommend this place to friends and family if they are looking for a great experience. Food was amazing and very delicious, if you can, get the Big appetizer.
Had a great evening! Service was excellent and we were not rushed to leave after dinner
Probably one of the best meals I've had in years
I like the place. Oysters are excellent and the fresh catch (white seabass) was good.
Todo perfectamente cocinado y delicioso!
Everything we ate was fantastic!! Ordered the peel and eat shrimp, octopus, lobster roll and mussels
The food was amazing- it’s a beautiful location and they really made my friend feel special for her birthday.
I am absolutely coming back!
Delicious food. The octopus was tender and cooked perfectly. We tried a half dozen oysters and went with the servers recommendation, they did not disappoint. The bone marrow Oscar was savory and delightful. I highly recommend!!
Ceviche was horrible and chewy. Drinks were good. Service was poor. I had to utilize other servers to order what I wanted. Oysters were great.
Excellent food and service, fun ambiance on an early Saturday evening
Delish, awkward server, small portions for full priced menu, good happy hour
We had the most wonderful experience last night entertaining family. The service was outstanding - attentive but not overbearing, all with smiles. The new drink menu is fabulous. Everyone loved every item, from apps to entrees. The new opah tartare is a great addition to the menu and I would definitely order it again. We will definitely be going back soon.
Cool decor, and super fresh seafood!
Maine lobster was grilled well. Life is grand.
Sat at the bar for dinner this time; great service!
Absolutely perfect evening! Great service, the seafood was gorgeous, and banana pudding for dessert!?! Highly recommend!
After hearing about this place being one of the best seafood-specialty restaurants in San Diego for years, I was really excited to finally try it. Thennn we got the food and I was a little disappointed. We ordered chowder fries and clam chowder to start, and nothing was special about either of them. Chowder fries were just wet fries with no flavor. The biscuit that came along with the chowder was sadly cold as well. Then came our scallops and lobster roll. The scallops were very good quality and yummy in that aspect, but there was virtually no crust to them which was a let down. The lobster roll was also good, but very small for the price, and definitely not the best lobster roll I’ve had in San Diego. On top of that they’re too pretentious to have ketchup to go with your fries which makes no sense at all lol. The best part of this meal was our half a dozen oysters that we ordered which came after we’d finished everything else, which is understandable. However, service was great and our server was knowledgeable which made the experience better albeit the food which was lacking.
Overall everything was really good. We had an issue with an oyster that wasn’t so fresh and they took care of us very well and provided great concern and attentiveness. It was a lovely place to have dinner. The ambiance was amazing and we would go there again.
Awesome atmosphere, great service, and the lobster roll was the best I’ve ever had.
We ate outside and it was a nice Sunday afternoon.
Food was average but super expensive. My girlfriend cut her food on a nail sticking out of the chair and the manager came over to ask if she was okay then offered no compensation. We expected to see something reflected on our bill and let our waitress know when there was nothing. Our waitress went back and talked to the manager who took $15 off of our $150 bill. We will not be returning to Ironside.
Food and service were on point!
Overall service, food, and drinks were great and our server was amazing !
Good was good, but expensive. Our server was not great.
Noise was way too loud. Not sure how you can soften noise? Raw bar backed up so there was a delay, but understand everyone is under staffed these days..
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the country. It is truly a great experience with a well thought out plan of your meal and enjoyment. I would recommend this to any seafood and cocktail lover.
Awesome happy hour and friendly staff
Great Food, music very loud
Took too long to get ordered drinks and oysters/shrimp at the beginning. Other food and drink orders later came quickly. Both servers were excellent and apologetic for how long the food was taking at the beginning. Music was very loud at our outdoor table. It was difficult to hold a conversation with others at the table.
The high quality of the food made up for the other downside factors.
Things seemed to settle down toward the end of happy hour.
Amazing food. Incredibly fresh seafood. Try the oysters and local catch with butter sauce.
