Relaxed Restaurant With Good Service, Food

Sheerwater is a very relaxing place for lunch. Lovely views of the beach complement the professional service and very good food. Everyone is friendly without being familiar, making for an enjoyable dining experience.

A very good meal -- the knife and fork fish taco was delicious, as was my 'italian' cocktail. The view of the ocean was a treat for someone who lives inland, and my server was very professional. Some of the staff seemed a bit stuffy and haughty -- please, please get over yourselves. You threatened to spoil an otherwise very... More

I was horrified that the staff were happy with small birds flying into the restaurant and walking all over the breakfast buffet.

I loved the ambience of the hotel and the waiter. The food was ok but not anything I would eat again or suggest for others. I had the beet salad which is one of my favorite salads. This one was just ok but not impressive. The presentation of the salad was mundane. Nothing like the description of the menu. I... More

Visiting or staying at the Del Coronado Hotel be sure to have lunch or dinner at Sheerwater outside by the water. Great menu, nice views and a relaxing time.

We have eaten lunch at Sheerwater on all our trips to San Diego. During our last 2 when we stayed at the Del we ate lunch here on 2 of the 3 days. So we know it was going to be pricey and maybe crowded. Since our visit in 2013 they had changed menu getting rid of the Duet combo... More

Lunch with friends. Lovely location outside by the ocean. Outstanding service. A fish taco like I've never tasted. Everything was perfect and well worth the price.

Its been a while since I've eaten at a breakfast buffet, and although I don't eat pastries for breakfast, the baked goods spread here is incredible, maybe the biggest i've ever seen. Alot of options from egg dishes to fruits, smoked salmon, bacon, sausages. I'm not easily impressed, but again for a breakfast buffet definitely check it out! We dinned... More

The subject summarizes our perfect experience. We dined around 8pm. Ordered 2 steak and lobster dinners and sipped wine until it was served, all the while, listening to the waves roll up on the beach. It's a lovely, romantic setting at the hotel Del Coronado. We were staying at the 1906 Lodge 2 blocks away, also a 5 star experience... More
