Not just about the seafood

One thing you may have noticed about a lot of seafood and sushi restaurants is that they leave little to desire to those who may be coming along for the company, but aren’t necessarily in love with the food. And it makes sense if you think about it. Seafood is a main feature, especially in San Diego. What sets Lionfish above the average seafood restaurant is that we want everybody to have a great dining experience, whether or not they’re fans of seafood. We want you to think of our seafood offerings as top billing, but our other entrée offerings are the best supporting actors; they deserve their very own high praise for bringing everything, and everybody together.

We’ve got turf for those who won’t surf. 

Let’s be real here too… our atmosphere really can’t be beat, so if you’re a frequent visitor of Lionfish, maybe you just want to change it up, and try something different. Let’s go over our options.
