Generally, we do not think hotel restaurants are special, but Mistral at the Loews Coronado Bay on Coronado Island in San Diego, California is an exception. The secret to their success is simple: excellent food served by a very friendly staff. I asked for names of the young staff that took care of us and would tell you you would... More

The chef presents a tapas type venue with great twists in familiar foods. The food was delicious. The service was good. The room is fabulous and looking out at San Diego bay. My wife and I started with a olive appetizer that was prepared in warm olive oil. The favors were so good. We also had a risotto dish. Our... More

We spent a week in San Diego for vacation, and my only regret about this restaurant is that we discovered this restaurant on our final day. Like the rest of our Loews experience, the service was warm, welcoming, and wonderful. But, I have to get to the food, because it really was amazing. We had a few glasses of wine... More

Mr.Rosenberg warmly greeted us and ushered us to a table overlooking the bridge and the bay. Our server was attentive, but not too attentive. My husband, who is lactose-intolerant, had codfish prepared without dairy products and he felt totally satiated. I, a vegetarian, had a beet salad, which was exquisitely prepared without too much fat in the dressing. The entire... More

We ate in downtown Coronado the first couple of nights, but got out of our conference late and were tired the next night. We decided to stay onsite and eat at Mistral just to avoid having to leave the resort. The service from all of the waitstaff was blow-you-away amazing! Able to describe the flavors/dishes in amazing detail and had... More

It is nothing spectacular and the alternative is to leave the hotel. I have had a wide range of service here from horrible to great. They should try to develop some consistency. They need more options for families. Try Leroys!

Daughter and I were having a Spa vacation at the hotel, so we definitely wanted to try Mistral. The dining room is elegantly furnished and most tables have a great view of the Pacific. The tapas/small bites portion of the menu was perfect for us because neither of us wanted a lot of food. We sampled several dishes. We liked... More

Food was great (tried the small bites or "tapas") which were enough versus an entre and reasonably priced. Restaurant was clean. Waiter started out super great but then forgot our second glass of wine and delivered it as we were finished with our food. Otherwise ok.

A year ago I wrote a rave review of Mistral Bar's Happy Hour, which was just wonderful--creative cocktails and delicious appetizers. No longer. Although the beautiful view, stylish bar, and attentive greeters are the same, the Happy Hour offerings are not. We had just come from a $5 per drink Happy Hour at another waterfront restaurant; Mistral's well drinks were... More
