If you are in San Diego, do not depart without partaking of a "Dinner at the Del." The 1500 Ocean restaurant is the fine dining experience with excellent food and beautiful Pacific Ocean views. We sampled the tuna (very buttery), octopus (delicately sauteed to be firm but not rubbery, and the scallops (beautifully seared but still moist). The 4 course... More

Get the tasting menu is worth the price. If you compare it to the ala carte, it really is a great deal. Pricey, but worth it!

Very elegant formal brunch service on bright outdoor oceanfront patio. The higher end offering at the sumptuous Del Coronado...The food was up to par - great cold seafood platter and fresh crab cakes and mussels. Service was courteous and efficient. Privilege to be able to experience and delivered on our expectations. A winner.

Amazing meal. Thank you Armando for your excellent service. The 4 course meal was one of the best I've ever had. A little spendy, but well worth it for a special occasion.

Inside and outside dining with ocean view. Wonderful outdoor living room lounge with firepits and tiki torches. Had a drink outside, but ate inside and still had a nice view. We had seafood and it was fresh and cooked just to our liking - wonderful meal for a special event.

It’s been twenty years since I last visited the Del Coronado and the hotel has lost none of its charm, although it has shed some of its formality. We were a group of twelve, and I was amazed by how attentively such a large party could be served. I think we each ordered the four-course tasting menu, which was great... More
