Great location with good service. The Chilean sea bass was cooked to perfection and their fancy mojito was our table favorite!

Once we realized this was a buffer brunch, we were able to relax and enjoy it. We travelled with a teenage celiac vegetarian. She found some food on the first trip around and a chef came out and walked through the buffet options with her so we new what was safe. They even offered to cook up a vegetarian gluten... More

Large portions prepared by decorated chefs, served in the sunshine of the Pacific Coast. Restaurant is a feature of the world-famous Del Coronado Hotel. Memorable.

One of the best meals ever at Sheerwater. We had no plans for dinner. Had walked down the street checking out restaurants and decided to return to our hotel for dinner. We did not have reservations. Was a great dinner!

Great place to have a dinner outside, food is great! Check this out so worth it if you can fight off the seagulls while you eat.

We ate here a few days in a row and there is no way you get bored since many items e.g. pastries change daily. Eating outside was a great option too (we ate here for lunch once). Great quality. A little pricey at $30+/p !!

After an early morning flight out of Milwaukee, we finally arrived at the Hotel Del about 1:00 p.m. PST. Needless to say, our party of 4 was famished! We were asked if we were guests of the hotel and when replied no, we were told they could only seat us inside, guests are given first priority. OK then...since we were... More

Need to hire hostesses that care more about their patrons. I show up starving, having run three conference calls already and with 25 mins until my next meeting. I asked for a seat for 1, for the buffet. I was told I had to wait for at least 20 mins. They were seated at ~50% capacity and had at least... More
