Awarded 2018 “Dish of the Year” by San Diego CityBeat and 2019 Top 10 New Restaurants by Modern Luxury San Diego
Overlooking San Diego Bay at the crossroads of downtown’s most storied neighborhoods, Chef Amy DiBiase imparts Vistal, a culinary tribute to the seaside communities and diverse cultures that encompass San Diego’s past and present. The award-winning chef presents the region’s core flavors, blending bright, bold combinations from the Baja peninsula, Pacific islands, Mediterranean fishing villages and beyond for a refreshing new perspective on coastal Southern California cuisine.
With gleaming views of the water, Vistal’s design is reminiscent of San Diego’s endless summer. An imposing 29-seat bar is angled towards the USS Midway, which is framed by the dining room’s panoramic windows. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors let the sea breezes in, leading from the main dining area to a west-facing terrace offering tabletop seating, fireside lounges, and an elevated view of the bay.
