We were celebrating my birthday, and had high expectations. The Ocean 1500 did not disappoint, in fact we talk about that meal often, and it is likely the standard we'll be using for some time. The restaurant is in the Hotel Del Coronado, where were staying, and has a fantastic view of the beach. The early May nights were warm... More

We had a really good meal but was it worth the price, given other restaurants in the area? Probably not.

Outstanding choice of breads, omelets, bakery, just about anything you would want for breakfast. The quality was very good. It was pricey but worth the experience.

Really. A full service, expensive hotel that is not able to offer fine dining. ?? THAT is a mystery. Would not have mattered apparently because the non-fine-dining option for Monday would not answer the phone, or the front desk either.

Rather than describe each wonderful dish, let me just say that this was truly one of the best meals that I have had in the USA. Chef Meredith Manee has created interesting dishes with unique flavors that are beautifully plated. The service was excellent and we sat in a booth which gave added privacy. There were four of us and... More

We were walk-ins for dinner and were seated immediately. The staff was attentive and non-intrusive. Food was excellent. We split a meal so it was reasonable in spite of cost of a glass of wine. Will return.

Wonderful presentations of baby octopus, white prawns, and raw oysters. Less satisfying were the local sea bass and grouper. Quite pricey as was expected - ditto for the wine list.
