I took my husband here for his birthday in May 2014. The view was beautiful, and the staff was nice, but the food or at least mine was just average. The mussels where fishy tasting, as was my fish entree, so I guess it wasn't fresh. The price for the quality was food was in-congruent. If you want just drinks... More

We went to 1500 Ocean for a birthday celebration and all four of us enjoyed our meals! We selected the tasting menu. They yellow tail sashimi was the best I've ever had! Others enjoyed the beets and beef carpaccio. The lobster risotto and filet were amazing. We ordered sides but didn't end up eating much of them, but they were... More

We had a wonderful meal sitting outside with a view of the ocean. The food was excellent. We did the tasting menu. The beef carpaccio and the scallops were excellent. I would get something other than the asparagus and crab soup for the second course, however. Brought the crème brulee back to the room because we were stuffed!

we stayed five days at the Del this was on of their nice restaurant's they have two. It was nice, the food was just ok, and the service was horrible and it was expensive. Essentially, you are paying for the location and the view.

This restaurant has beautiful views, it's right on the beach. The outside set up is really nice. This restaurant is worth visiting because of the staff. We spoke to several of them who had been there for over 30 years! I think that says a lot about an establishment. I did the prix fixe menu and it was really good.... More

We dined here on our second night at The Del and had the most enjoyable experience. We did the Tasting Menu (well worth it) and they actually gave us plenty of time between courses to really enjoy the experience. We were there for 2 1/2 hours. The food was fantastic! We will dine here again in the future! (Again, an... More

Unlike my review for Sheerwater at Hotel del Coronado, the 1500 Ocean was excellent! Although expensive, the service, atmosphere, and food quality was excellent. It was well worth spending a few extra $ and dining here! Innovative and delicious food, personal attentive service, and a beautiful restaurant. Recommended but not cheap.

The location is spectacular with excellent views of the beach and ocean. When we first arrived we were guided to our table and served cold water. However, while every other table around us (literally) was being served no one came to serve us. Apparently our table had not been assigned to a waiter. The manager was so embarrassed that he...

First, if you're here, you're at the Hotel Del Coronado. I don't know if there is a better San Diego location to have dinner. I went for a business dinner. About 16 of us. I usually dread these things, and the only reason I went along was the above stated reason. The experience was well worth the time. First and... More
