My brother is an Executive Chef and highly recommended this restaurant. I'm so glad he did. We took a quick taxi ride from San Diego over the bridge and had a most enjoyable evening. My husband and I decided to "go for it" and order from the four course tasting menu. Our waiter Paul made some great recommendations and our... More

The best part of this dinner was the service and the view. The food was just average and considering the prices, I was extremely disappointed. I had shrimp that was a bit overcooked and not very tasty and my husband had a filet that was hard to cut through. Overall was not a good experience.

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
