Where could be even begin in giving our endorsements to the Bali Hai Restaurant? A 20+ year love affair with the food and the view. A 15 year wedding vendor relationship with the Baumann Family and easily over 100+ wedding ceremonies performed at the beautiful San Diego bay side location with such an awesome support staff where in addition to all this; we booked this very location for our daughter Sarah's wedding. Over the last 10 years, Larry Baumann and his family has donated their location to our www.militrymondays.net philanthropic outreach where in November 2015, we celebrated our 500th FREE ceremony to our active military. We love the Bali Hai!
The Bali Hai staff is accommodating and professional in every way. The setting is right on the water and the ceremony site is intimate and right on the harbor. The outdoor patio is the perfect size, and is also right along the water. The venue is memorable and modern.
