  • We are open for dine-in service at a reduced capacity, both indoors and on our outdoor patio.
  • Due to our limited capacity, reservations are highly recommended.
  • If you are not vaccinated, we require everyone who visits Cutwater to wear a face covering/mask at all times, including when seated at an indoor table – before the meal is served and after the meal is finished.
  • We will be collecting the name of each guest seated at a table and the telephone number of at least one guest at the table, and we’ll keep this list of names and telephone numbers for no less than three weeks (you will only be contacted in the rare case of exposure).
  • We strongly encourage all guests who are seated together to be from the same household.
  • 2-hours is the maximum time allotted for each dining experience.

In 2017 we opened what has quickly been touted as one of San Diego’s top bars and restaurants. It’s the perfect hospitality venue for us to explore innovative cocktails made from our award-winning spirits which we distill on-site, and create regional cuisine worthy of those libations.
