Good food made real good.

Really good restaurant in Coronado at the del Coronado. Nice atmosphere. Menu was well balanced. The beet salad is exceptional as is the tuna tartare / sashimi starter. The minority chicken main course was beautifully soft and tender and the lamb rack cooked to perfection (though a third lamb... read more

1500 Ocean is one of the best restaurants we've ever experienced. The food is delicious, the service is impeccable, and the ambiance is world class. We highly recommend.

I have mixed feelings about the Del and 1500 Ocean. Part of me is so excited to be experiencing this iconic and beloved historic hotel, the other part is feeling let down. Anytime you visit a restaurant at the Hotel Del Coronado, you find yourself paying premium pricing. I wouldn't have a problem if premium service and quality followed. Sadly,... More

My hub and I had our tenth anniversary dinner celebration at 1500. It seemed a bit overprice for the small portions, and I didn't care for the culinary twists. However, the service was excellent, which compensated for the meal.

The Del… The Coronado landmark doesn't disappoint in it's 1500 Ocean restaurant in the back of the hotel @ beachfront with a great view. Jessica the maître d' and Joe the waiter are two reasons that people keep coming back… That's in addition to the melt in your mouth filet mignon and horseradish potatoes. Highly recommended… Great food service views... More

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
