This was where we had our white table cloth dinner on our last trip to Coronado. The service was amazing and the food was excellent. My wife had the halibut which was cooked to perfection, I had the crab soup and the scallops which were amazing. The oysters were my favorite part of the dinner, a must. We went on... More

Quite expensive for quality. Halibut was dry and I should have sent back. Crab and asparagus soup was somewhat tasteless. It was my birthday and they did bring me a comp Creme Brulee'.

Great food and for this type of restaurant fair pricing. Great selection and impeccable service. Halibut was tender and the beet salad was wonderful.

Had a lovely view to the ocean with a mariachi band playing outside the restaurant. Our waiter was attentive and very pleasant and helpful. Best part of the meal was the asparagus and crab soup - absolutely amazing. Excellent wine menu and good fish selection.

Fantastic quality of food, wine and service. Four courses for $75 and a bottle of wine $56 may not sound cheap but when you consider that among the options were filet steak, scallops, lobster risotto with a beautiful view of the ocean this is a great choice for special occasion dining!

Great setting if you eat on the patio overlooking the hotel and ocean. Service was excellent! The food was very good and not overpriced for Coronado. Wine list was good but towards the high end, though they did have some bottles less than $100. I would go again!

We were seated close to closing and felt a little bad that they were trying to finish service. But the hostess and waiter made us feel like we were their most important customers. Am I ever glad. I ordered the Chilean sea bass, the best I've had. The sear was crisp and the cook perfect. The seasoning was spot on.... More

We sat on the patio which looks out onto the beach and was gorgeous. Our group had mixed reviews on the food. I loved the asparagus and crap soup but my scallop entree was overly salty. The lobster risotto was too rich for me, one bite was enough. We got the creme brule and chocolate chipotle cake desserts, neither was... More

Loved the setting. Great drinks and great choices on the menu. Have eaten there several times. Summers are pretty crazy on the terrace - not as relaxed as I would like. Off season is my favorite time to visit.
