The place to go in Coronado

This is the place for VERY special occasions. Plan on $100 each. Food was excellent, service excellent too. I had the tenderloin - excellent taste. Appetizers a bit eclectic. Selection limited on main courses.

My husband and I were on a work trip/vacation and decided to treat ourselves by going here. It was Restaurant Week so they had a special menu which included an appetizer, entree, and dessert. I had scallops with lemon risotto, and it was absolutely incredible. The scallops were perfectly cooked and sweet, and the risotto was delicious, and it was... More

Make sure to allow yourself ample time for a long dinner....ours took 2 1/2 hours!!! Service was good but extremely slow, which I believe was purposeful and part of the ambiance. The oysters with the spicy limoncello sauce were incredible as was the duck gnocchi (with blueberries yum!!!) I highly recommend the black cod, very flavorful! The halibut was just... More

A highlight of our stay. Staff and food excellent. From the welcome at the door to the chef coming out to meet us at the end of the meal, it was excellent . Would definitely eat here again

We celebrated our anniversary this day and enjoyed impeccable service by Glen and a delicious meal. We were seated on the patio, as it was a beautiful summer evening, with a view of the ocean in the distance. We were treated to enjoyable Hawaiian music by a group playing for a corporate party on the lawn in front of the... More

After actually moving tables several times between two different choices Del Coronado offers, we decided to eat at the 1500. Why did we move so often? The tables views were blocked by an ugly construction tarp, and the tables with a view were being held for certain guests. The table we ended up at was comfortable. Service was slow right... More

It is nicer to dine at the terrace. The service was very good. The fish was fresh but the octopus was very salty and it was expensive.

Lovely restaurant, but the food is just a little over priced and not much flavor and we would like to see more choices in appetizers and entries . We go here every year when we stay here, we keep trying it, thinking it will get better.

This dining experience was superb. Waiter Paul presented us with an anniversary greeting card signed by the waitstaff. We recommend the Vegetarian Wellington perfectly baked around a portabello and the simply and deliciously grilled halibut. Side order of rainbow carrots in herbed yogurt sauce is worth ordering again. Modest but excellent selection of wines by the glass.

This restaurant is very good, but also very pricey. For the same view, you can eat next door at the Sheerwood and save yourself a bundle.
