Fantastic food choices in one of the most extensive brunch buffets I have ever seen. Service was a little tired but not that big of a deal since it was a buffet.

Best brunch not only in Coronado but possibly the entire US! The buffet offered great variety, our waiter (Ramsey) was amazing and very attentive, and the unlimited champagne and mimosas. While the price may be an initial turn off, the experience, atmosphere and delicious food more than made up for it.

Last year I stayed at the Del and I stated it was the most overrated hotel I've ever stayed. Don't stay at the Del where cocktails are $15 and hamburgers are $25. Where there is little quiet time because of all the tourists visit all day long. Where I ordered a lemonade and a wine and my bill with tip... More

My wife and I along with some friends went to a Sunday Brunch and it was by far the best brunch that I've ever had. There were seven staging areas and they had everything from seafood, to a special area for deserts. It is a little pricy, but a once in a life time experience. The food was excellent well... More

Huge history and atmosphere in this well appointed long bar! Service was impeccable! . We enjoyed the Crown Margaritas, which had an interesting touch of orange! Bar menu was very complete and had all the basics. The kitchens in this Hotel are nothing less than Gourmet!. A repeat for sure!

Sunday brunch included both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The spicy Bloody Mary and pomegranate mimosa were tasty. Some of our highlights were the giant grouper displayed at the cooked entree station, the cheese station, and the donut bar. As the omelet bar had very boring choices, I had an egg white omelet made with the king crab meat I shelled... More

We went for the breakfast buffet. The omelet maker was great and very friendly. The pastries were excellent as was the fruit. Some of the other food could have been warmer. The waiters were helpful and kept the drinks full. The $35 cost seemed a little steep although it was great to walk through the Del.

Love the atmosphere and the beautiful old hotel. The food was excellent as was the service. I was there with a friend for brunch. With all that was wonderful, it was quite expensive. From a food safety perspective there was a LOT to be desired. The birds which were nibbling on the pastries would not cut a food safety inspection.
