First the positive, service was great. Also, I loved their queso dip and chips. I ordered shrimp enchiladas as recommended by the server. They are ok, but found several pieces of shrimp shell in them.

We dined at Miguel's upon the recommendation of a local. We were there on a Monday during non-peak hours so there was no wait for a table. (Added bonus: happy hour) We sat in the outside dining area which we found to be comfortable. The service was very good and so was the food. I would dine here again and... More

We had high hopes for the food, but it was just average. Two of our party of 15 or so, had plates of food served to them that were cold. They quickly fixed it, but, why should we have to ask? Great location, price was right. Just not great.

Seating outside is comfy. Food is decent but I have had better Mexican food. Service is very good. Great location near Hotel del Coronado.

We dined at Miguel's in January while staying at the Hotel Del Coronado. Though it was a busy evening we were seated with only a short wait. The restaurant has a system for contacting diners that uses text mail. There are several small shops around that provide entertainment while waiting and ample seating around the restaurant for those we who... More

We tried 4x to go to this place. Every time the wait was over an hour for 2 people. So we thought it was going to be amazing when we finally got in on our last day there. The place is actually massive. There are all separate dining areas (4 that we saw). We were all the way in the... More

We arrived at the Hotel Del around lunch time after a cross-country flight and found Miguel's right across the street. We were seated right away on the patio, which was really cute with plenty of outdoor heaters. Overall, the thing that stood out here was the service. Our waiter came over right away, brought everything quickly and when he saw... More

We stayed at the del for our daughter's wedding and took a large group here twice because we could walk. We did not care for the noisy interior, but the second time, the outside seating was great. The food was ok, and very hot, but the best was the white cheese sauce for chips, I could enjoy it on anything.... More

The hostess tried to sit us in a table smooshed up to a large party and with a shaky table leg. When we asked for another table we got attitude. Not a great way to start the night. Next, at a table close to us, a lady with her dog. GROSS. Her dog was not well behaved and kept jumping... More
