Great service and view. The food was good and the service was excellent and accommodated special requests. The restaurant has a nice view of the beach.

You can either say "people will come here anyway because this is the Hotel Del" or take pride in your tradition and do better than everybody else. The servers are nice but the food is not. The fruit is tasteless, the "danish" tasted gummy, the nice lox is there, but served like a big lump. At almost $40?

Don't waste your money. The food is extremely overpriced and is simply average. The staff is very friendly but the service is terrible. We ate at Sheerwater and had to constantly wave down a waiter for service. I could go on for another 5 paragraphs, but you get the idea. If you eat here, you will come out extremely disappointed...

We were in the mood for a good seafood restaurant and were going to meet for drinks on the patio at the Del so we decided on Sheerwater. So glad we did, our waiter Anthony was great! Everything we had was amazing, lump crabmeat (off the menu but Anthony made it happen), the cleanest oysters I have had in a... More

The restaurant bar clearly is understaff and it show with the service we get. The lady seems in a hurry to get our order not so friendly. She would not even want to answer my wife question on what kind of Fisk in their fish n chip item. I have to repeat it and she finally obligated to give the... More

We ate here while staying at the del Coronado hotel. The food wAs good, not a huge menu but everything was fresh and good. It was casual and some what expensive place. But worth it.

Sfeerwater is one of the only restaurants in the Hotel del Coronado, so it is a good choice if you are staying there. The food is good but overpriced, you expect a good portion of food but they're quite tiny. The Sea Bass was excellent, but everything else was OK. The service was excellent though, the waiters were really nice... More

I would recommend sitting on the patio and catching views of the sunset going down behind the hill where the navy base is. It's beautiful out there. My three favorites are the sea bass, the macaroni and cheese (I know, it sounds weird), and the creamed spinach. The sea bass flakes apart and melts in your mouth. It's simply some... More

Traveling alone to San Diego for a conference I wanted to splurge on a great seafood dinner. I planned to arrive at 5 pm as the restaurant opened so that I could be seated as a single diner. Parking on the street and walking the rest of the way saves you enough for an appetizer! Facing the beach, I was... More
