Picture perfect is all I can say! Our wedding was amazing. It was exactly how I pictured it in my head and couldn't have been better. The catering staff was phenomenal, the weather was perfect, the food was impeccable, I actually had guests say they've never been so full at a wedding before! And Daniel Sears was awesome! He was so organized and made the whole wedding process a breeze, he had everything laid out for us to choose our food, linens, dance floor set up, etc and gave us a folder with everything we choose and the floor lay out (for the DJ) (I love being organized). We couldn't have asked for a better Events Coordinator!
I only wish they would do something about the bird poo on the wall. Our pictures had a lot of background of bird mess (so be warned!). But not sure if they can do anything about that… Also perhaps better signage on how to get to the venue, we had a lot of confusion getting everyone there.
It's a beautiful location and I would absolutely do it all over again there!!

Thank you to everybody at the Oceanview Room Admiral Kidd Catering!!! AMAZING!

I can't picture having my wedding anywhere but here! It was exceptional. The setting was perfect, the waitstaff were so professional and kept the wedding going smoothly. One of the most common compliments I received after the wedding was how smoothly and effortlessly the day went. Guests moved seamlessly from wedding to cocktail hour to reception. My only complaint was that the wedding had to end at 10:00 and we were not able to add on an extra hour. This is a rule on base and can't be changed by the venue. We just loved our day so much we wanted it to last longer!

We had our wedding here in July and received so many compliments on the location, the view, the service, and the food. The staff was super friendly, the food was delicious, and everything they set up was gorgeous.

The only bad part is that the directions to the venue aren't on most maps, so some of my guests (who didn't use the enclosed directions) got lost and ended up at a cemetary! They also require your full guest list a week in advance as well as the license plate/driver info for all your vendors, but that wasn't a big deal.

The Oceanview Room is absolutely beautiful if the weather is nice. It's located right there on the ocean, which makes it intimate and romantic. The reception area has been newly renovated and looks great. The outside of the building is a sight for sore eyes and kind of looks like an abandoned building, but you would never guess that there's a beautiful wedding site behind it. The pricing was great, as we were on a budget and pretty much stuck to the budget and got everything we wanted. The food was very tasty and delicious. I've been to many military functions with in house catering and I must say I was very surprised and impressed on the taste. We had many comments on how great the food was. Daniel is amazing to work with and very professional. He was very attentive and accomodating to all the changes I made and some were very last minute. Had NO issues at all with my civilian guests getting on base.

I am reviewing as the MOB. They told you up front exactly what would be expected re vendor ID's and guests names ahead of time. My recommendation is to use vendors familiar with the venue. We used one vendor who had not been there before and they were late and substituted one person for another which could have caused them to not get on base at all.
Everyone commented it was one of the best weddings they had been too. It was so beautiful. Everyone danced all night. The food was great. We rented a portable bar and set the bar up outside under the other patio cover. It kept everyone outside on the deck all night. The food and service was excellent. We chose the steak and salmon for our guests. Our DJ was Elite British DJ and if you are looking for a fun wedding, he is your guy! His wife, Julie from the Best Wedding For You was our coordinator and she is outstanding. She has alot of experience working with the bases.
It was a beautiful evening and everything went very smoothly.

Our catering manager was Tess. Everything was great. It was kind of tough since I am out of state and my husband was deployed. So most of our interaction was via e-mail or phone. The only drawback was that e-mails weren't answered sometimes. It was best to call. But the couple times that my husband and I dropped by the office to iron out details made up for that. Tess really listened to us and was really flexible. Since it is on a military base, there are a lot of rules, but they tell you that upfront.
The location is amazing. All our guests really enjoyed the view of the ocean and the weather was great. It got a little chilly, but the staff set up the outdoor heaters as soon as we gave them the ok.
The food was decent and the price was so affordable especially compared to any other place in SD on the water. All the guests were telling us how beautiful our wedding was.

Most beautiful location! I couldn't of asked for a better spot to have my wedding :) It was directly next to the ocean, with beautiful cliffs on one side of the backdrop, and downtown san diego on the other, which was so beautiful after the sun set. We had our reception on the outside deck, and danced under the stars! It's was magical!

Although the logistics of getting 50% of our non military guests on base for the ceremony & reception we LOVED this venue and the service. Everything we asked for got taken care of without us having to say a word. The views of Point Loma and the water was amazing. The bar offered to stay open for another hour at no cost to us and they were really attentive to not only the guests but us as the bride and groom. We did not have to lift a finger. We also took advantage of a BOQ room to stage the bridal party before the the ceremony started. Overall it was a great experience. Plus a school of dolphins swam up to see what the party was about!

I love this place, so did all my guest and they also provide the food. Its a Naval base, so they are strict and I had to provide a namelist of all my guest for the gate. The view is amazing and its good so no unwelcomed guest would come to your event. Everyone love the food all the guest were raving about the food and the view. Its expensive, since its runs $40 per person and up.

This is probably the best view in San Diego and the best bang for your buck. The OceanView Room and Deck on the Point Loma Naval Sub Base allows you to be the only bride at the time of your event all while having a magnificent view of the Ocean and downtown skyline. The food is not the best, but it is still better than most places I have tried, and you can't beat the price! Only downfall is that you have to have a sponsor if you aren't in the military (they don't have to be related though). But, if you aren't in the military and do get a sponsor, ask all of your questions up front (you will have a lot, and getting back on is after your initial visit and before your final visit won't happen without your sponsor to escort you on). While it can be difficult, it is definitely worth it. They would have gotten a 5 out of 5 if you didn't have to wait to get back on or finalize the price (they give you a brochure but won't even quote you until 90 days prior). But again, can't beat that view (not even a Del Mar or La Jolla location has this same secluded feel Ocean front).
