The people at Bali Hai made our experience from the first planning day to our wedding day absolutely seamless, convenient, and awesome! Their willingness to answer our MANY questions, patience as we coordinated over 50 out of town guests, and flexibility with other vendors was so appreciated. Jenny and Kendyll went above and beyond for us, and our guests were blown away by the amazing buffet, downtown/bay views, outdoor ceremony spot, and the South Pacific room for our reception. THANK YOU for the incredible hospitality and helping facilitate our perfect day!Sent on 04/16/2019

Best Value for Wedding Venue!
From the event coordinators (Jenny & Kendyll) to the wait staff, my now-husband and I could not have asked for a more accomodating and organized group of people to help us execute our big day beyond our expectations. Having a group that is detail-oriented, organized, and fast responders was a huge priority for us in making the wedding as stress-free as possible. The tasting for the food was included with our package which isn't common. The food was great and was a highlight of our wedding day, as were the mai tai's and champagne punch bowl. You definitely get a great waterfront view at Bali Hai, but what you will get that you will not get elsewhere is by far the biggest bang for your buck. Choosing this place was most gratifying decision we made for our wedding.Sent on 06/10/2019

Amazing and picturesque venue for a wedding ceremony and reception!
Absolutely! We have actually already told many friends and associates about our wedding and the wonderful venue and services of Bali Hai! It was the perfect setting with a very romantic backdrop of the City of San Diego on the other side of the San Diego Harbor. The city lights were very picturesque. Lots of our guests were from out of town. It was very convenient for them to get to the ceremony and reception at the same location. They were very impressed to have a view of San Diego lit up across the waters. The pricing options for the ceremony and reception were well within our budget. For those considering a location for a wedding and reception or any other event, we highly recommend the Bali Hai!Sent on 05/28/2019

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.
