It’s been twenty years since I last visited the Del Coronado and the hotel has lost none of its charm, although it has shed some of its formality. We were a group of twelve, and I was amazed by how attentively such a large party could be served. I think we each ordered the four-course tasting... read more

Pure joy watching the sunset and eating a gourmet meal with friends on the outdoor covered porch. I splurged on the pre valentines meal. The foie gras was amazing!

We are multiple time Beach Village at the Del visitors who have never enjoyed 1500. Again with a new chef it fails to deliver. Great location with bad food and a less then adequate staff. So sad, can't recommend this restaurant. Bread 6/10 get a new source. Your bread has terrible texture. American Airlines first class much better Octopus 7/10... More

My husband and I celebrated Valentine's Day early with a dinner at 1500 Ocean, and the food did not disappoint. We are San Diego natives, and this is one of the best meals we've had in San Diego. My husband opted for the prix fixe menu and I ordered a la carte. The oysters were amazing with a lovely sauce,... More

We could eat here a few nights. The prefix menu is a lot of food for the price. Everything was wonderful. The lobster risotto is not to miss (if it is still on the menu). We will go back here because the food was so incredible. The service was good, but they are busy so not as attentive at times,... More

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.
