SURPISINGLY GOOD

Hotel Coronado can be a zoo, especially in summer so lunch here was a pleasant surprise. Though crowded the menu was interesting the food fresh & well prepared & the service good. All while sitting outside along the pacific. What more could one want.

The plates we passed on route to our table looked inviting. The menu had many options. Unfortunately perhaps my choices were just bad choices but why should there be even bad choices? Chopped Caesar Salad was not chopped, there was a half of a silver anchovy on a brick like baguette slice, the dressing was tasteless. The pepper I requested... More

Breakfast at the Del's Sheerwater used to be something I looked forward to. It is ridiculous how expensive it is, now. Will not go back.

Ate here for breakfast because of staying at hotel. Breakfast buffet for two about 75 dollars. Very crowded, always a line to get in. Was able to make reservations on open table after the first day and that is definitely the way to go-seated immediately. Service was good or bad depending on how busy it was and who the server...

The food in the Sheerwater Restaurant at the Hotel Del Coronado is top-notch. The quality is high, the presentation is attractive, and the service is very good.

Ok spot to have lunch the view makes it worth coming to but the service and food was not even close to the price. Was served Cesar Salad with wilted lettuce and it took the staff 45 minutes to prepare. My advice would be to just get drinks and enjoy the view.

Started with the valet service. Were greeted very nicely upon arriving and leaving. Okay, the $15 validated (ate lunch) fee was high, but it was all professional. On to the hostess. She was nice but seemed a bit frazzled. She gave us the table we requested. Our waitress was nice but didn't seem to enjoy her job. I felt like... More

Only had breakfast here and the buffet was out of this world! You will definantely get your monies worth here and be sure to ask for a to-go- box if you want to take some of their baked treats back to your room.
