New Menu at Lionfish Coastal Cuisine

We don’t know what got into us, but we just had to make some changes. “Out with the old, and in with the new!” we say. But don’t worry, we’re not that dramatic. We’ve kept the classics in rotation, but our Executive Chef JoJo Ruiz was itching to try out some new creations, and if we didn’t trust him then he wouldn’t be running the show, now, would he? 


What you need to know


When does the new menu launch? Saturday, 8/13/2022.

Are there gluten free items? You better believe it. And to make things easy, we mark the menu for you just so you’re sure. 

What are your hours these days? We are open daily at 4 pm. Saturday and Sunday start an hour later at 5 pm, and our happy hour is from 4-6 pm Monday-Friday!

What am I punching into my GPS? 435 Fifth Ave, San Diego, Ca 92101

Are reservations required? Reservations are not required, but highly encouraged. You don’t want to roll in at the last minute and not have a table waiting for you, and they fill up fast!


Enough talk, what’s for dinner? 


Listen, this is the part where we can throw in a bunch of fancy adjectives and tell you about how great the aroma and mouthfeel are, and say things like “tantalizing,” and “sensual,” but we think it’s best that we let the food speak for itself. Like a fine concerto, or a magnificent piece of visual art, sometimes seeing or hearing for yourself is the best way to go about things. 


Without further ado, the new menu

You can also see the new menu on our main site as of 8/13/2022. 


We’ll see you soon! 


We hope you stop in with friends, family, or a date, and have some of the best seafood and sushi in San Diego. While you’re at it, have a drink or two from our specialty cocktail program. Can you think of a better way to spend time with your loved ones over a seafood dinner in San Diego? Or if you’re just tagging along without an appetite for seafood, our Roasted Jidori Chicken will exceed all expectations. There’s something for everyone, and there’s plenty on our new menu to go around.
