Try it at least once during your visit.

Nice, overpriced breakfast buffet. Make reservations or wait a long long time in high season. Service excellent. Views great. Nice selection of foods for breakfast.

Took the family for buffet breakfast ..you have to book, but we were hotel guests so got fast tracked ..this is a great spread and for the quality and location, hard to beat ..there is literally everything on the menu..you could close your eyes and be in a Vegas buffet there's that much choice !

We have visited Coronado every year for the past 10 years. Always have enjoyed Sheerwater and made it our restaurant for lunch every time, even bringing visiting family members along. This visit, sub-par. Food on the ground around our table; very slow service; no ice in the water which was warm. Previously always offered a bread basket, had to ask... More

Had the breakfast buffet deal on a Sunday and they had quite the variety. Brie cheese? Very fancy and fresh, typical buffet food like eggs and pancakes available with more selections. Outside seating was nice and the staff was friendly and professional. Coronado beaches are awesome anytime of the year and a must if visiting San Diego. Such a gem... More

We chose this restaurant is it was the only restaurant at the Del with a kids' menu. We checked in at 11:25 and were told we'd be seated in about 5 minutes when they started seating for lunch. Approximately 15 minutes later the hostess asked if I was waiting for something. I told her I was waiting to be seated... More

We were staying at the hotel and wanted to sample its food on our first night. We had a special occasion to celebrate and we noted this on the booking form. We were given a privileged position on the patio. Service is quite slow, our waiter was v friendly but was overworked. The service was nowhere near as professional as... More
