Craft and catch converge at Tidal, perched where land meets sea on the shores of Mission Bay. Tidal curates a thoughtful selection of local seafood and craft beverages that, like the ever changing tides, shift seasonally at Mother Nature’s whim. Keeping in even keel with the kitchen, the bar offers an impressive collection of boutique wine, San Diego craft beers and unique cocktails.

Uncomplicated. Laid-back. Tidal is both in food and furnishings. Set in what was a private beach house in the 60s, Tidal’s mid-century modern design draws from the era it was built by Hollywood producer Jack Skirball. A fire pit-dotted deck, communal tables, cozy lounge and savory menu of shared plates beckon casual group gatherings and lively conversation ­­— though the 180° views of Mission Bay might just leave you at a loss for words.
