My husband & I dined here for our 25th wedding anniversary during restaurant week. The setting, meal & service far exceeded our expectations. Our server (Brett) was very knowledgable about the menu & wine pairings and provided excellent attention to us. We were looking for a special place for a special occasion and we found it at 1500 Ocean. I... More

We were staying at the Hotel del Coronado and made reservations at 1500 Ocean. I would highly recommend making reservations. Though there were several tables and booths open, we were seated right next to a party of four. I should have asked for a different table but it became apparent that they were understaffed, probably because it was the day... More

We were at the Del for four days to celebrate a milestone birthday. We had booked 1500 Ocean for the birthday dinner. One hopes nothing goes wrong and it didn't. We had a lovely table in the covered outside area with closely situated heaters. The service was both attentive and discrete. There was a comfortable understanding that this was to... More

Our family visited San Diego between Christmas and New Years and we booked dinner here during one of the nights. Partly to show our kids the Del Mar and why it was iconic. We planned our trip to arrive 90 minutes before our reservation to take in the experience before/during sunset view and walk around the Del Coronado grounds. It's... More

Sad to say, we had a miserable 2015, New Year's Eve dinner experience. We had spent the evening that we got married in San Diego at the Hotel del Coronado and had a great meal in the Crown Room 1982. Looking forward to a nostalgic NYE dinner, we booked the Seven Course meal several months in advance. Well, it was... More

Impressive selection of delicious food unlike any hotel brunch I have ever seen. Lobster dish and roast turkey were my favorites. I loved the small deserts too. Ask for a table by the window.

We celebrated my daughter's birthday at this restaurant. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. However, the price point is very high.

I went here with my husband. The food was absolutely exquisite. I enjoyed every bite of food I ate. I wished there was more variety with the wine pairing or even on the wine menu. It is VERY PRICY but I thought the food was well worth the price. The support staff (runners, water/bread) were all very attentive and well... More

We had a memorable time at the Hotel del Coronado. It certainly is a wonderful place in a great location, and just before Christmas it was all lit up and full of energy. We've never been to the Del before, so I thought we'd try the signature restaurant, 1500 Ocean. We started with a glass of sparkling wine at the... More

On December 2014 our company enjoyed our annual holiday dinner at 1500 Ocean at Hotel Del Coronado. Simply put: good service, well prepared and great tasting menu and wonderful ambiance overlooking the ice skating arena.
