nice value

Same food as 1500 Ocean, same views, more casual atmosphere and better pricing. Don't sit in the path to get in and out of the hotel though as it can be very busy

I have mixed reviews about this. On the one hand - it's tough to beat the views and location, on the other - it's hard to justify a $4.75 tea or $26 sandwich. The service, as others have written, seems to be snobby. I'm the one paying for this - at least the help could be pleasant. You have to... More

We had a delicious lunch while sitting outside at the Sheerwater. The food was delicious and the service was good. The seating under the awning allows you to enjoy a breeze without baking in the sun.

We had the breakfast buffet at Sheerwater. What a lovely experience. Delicious foo, great selection and excellent service thanks to our server Phil who was attentive, friendly and eager to please. And Supervisor Karla Golvan who was a delight. She was pleasant, gracious and even made sure we had muffins to go when the gluten free chocolate ones were all... More

Difficult to really identify any complaints. The location is great. The service and food were fine, but not great. Nothing wrong, but it lacked that something special that sets it apart. The menu was interesting and fishy, but the desserts were less good. The best thing was the views and the fine old hotel it us in. Good to visit... More

Hotel Del Coronado Has a restaurant that has a patio and a veranda and inside seating that faces the Pacific. It is inside the Hotel Del Coronado, an attraction in itself. The restaurant is for a chance to dine while sitting near the Pacific and breath ocean air with a view of the beach and Pacific waters to Point Loma... More

This seems to be the mid range restaurant at the Hotel Del Coronado, with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking Coronado Beach. Service was a bit odd. Initially the waiter said the catch of the day had sold out, but then returned to say it had changed from XXX to sand bass. I had the sand bass, which was excellent. My... More

This restaurant is right in The Hotel del. There is indoor and outdoor seating, looking at the ocean. The service was perfect, but the food was outstanding. We both had sea bass for dinner. We had the breakfast buffet each morning and I have never seen so many items to choose from. Be careful or you will eat too much.

Following a 90-minute tour of the Hotel Del Coronado (which was excellent), my friends and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the patio. What a glorious view! The service was outstanding - kudos to ever-attentive Kristina Gonzalez and to Romeo! Casual dining in a beautiful atmosphere -- and the fish and chips were superb. What a nice surprise to have...
