Best Buffet - good even when you aren't a buffet person

let me start with the fact that I don't like buffets - yuck yuck yuck but this one place has made me rethink that! All of the items are fresh, there are home baked goods, and made to order omelettes that are not gigantic so you can try other things. The waiter was slow and not very good but the... read more

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

Service and food awful. Dirty tables and staff unfriendly. Food on the table left in excess of 30 mins before being cleared. Waited more than 30 mins for sharing starter which was awful. Left after starter

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

After years of fabulous memories our family came back to create another... Unfortunately this time it was a bad one. We had reservations for our party and still had a 20 minute wait. Once seated it took almost 45 minutes for our cocktails to arrive - 3 of which had to be sent back because there was something wrong with... More

Ordered a crab cake BLT sandwich, for $27 which was supposed to be on a toasted brioche bun. When the sandwich came it was on white bread with only 1 side toasted and the bread was soggy from the wet lettuce on the sandwich. When I asked my server about the change she said they must have run out of... More

We booked a lunch reservation two months in advance and though we arrived to find the outdoor patio (where our table was supposed to be) under construction were pleased to be under cover on the veranda shielded from direct sun. Aware of the high cost to dine here I was glad to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant over a... More
