“Expensive Sunday Brunch, but so worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Visiting San Diego or live near there and going to be in town on Sunday, Don't pass up going to the Crown room at the Hotel Del Coronado for Sunday Brunch. It is expensive and they charge for parking, But the hotel is worth the parking fee just to see. In the United States, maybe 1 or 2 compare. Visit the massive lobby with it's extensive wood paneling. I have traveled throughout the world and the United States and I think this is the best Sunday Brunch available. Quality food, extensive selection, beautiful room, live music, and fantastic service. An example of the food. A lot of brunches have all you can eat crab legs, here the crab legs are king crab.

“Tasty but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The service was good and so was the food. No excitement in either area. It is located in a very touristy area and you feel like you are being moved on the belt.

“Spoil yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

You deserve it. It's pricey, but we had a BOGO coupon from a Facebook promo and decided to go for it. The Del is a beautiful place... My husband proposed to me there 5 years ago. The Sunday brunch is full of decadent, expensive food items. Cheese, meats, spreads, mustards, desserts, and salads. We spend two and a half hours here and just took it all in. We drank champagne and yummy apple cider. The food options are overwhelming. So fresh and beautifully prepared. My husband especially liked the candy buffet. I loved the turkey panini and all of the wonderfully prepared vegetables--especially the tomato with a pepper sauce. This is probably the best buffet we've been to. The only negative comment I have is that there were lots of kids running around and several babies crying. At $78.50 a pop it doesn't seem like a place you'd bring small children. I'd recommend a family friendly area and then an adults only area. I've got kids, I understand. But I'd recommend a separation to make everyone comfortable. We will definitely be back. It was a great experience and wonderful food. We don't think we even tasted half of it!!!

The chandeliers in the historic Crown Room were designed by L. Frank Baum, author of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" series and beautifully complement the intricate sugar pine ceiling. We hope you have the opportunity to return soon and experience our award-winning Sunday Brunch.

“Amazing Brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Our Sunday Brunch in the Crown Room at the Hotel del Coronado was amazing. There were huge selections of over 200 gourmet items from several serving stations to explore ... salads, carving station, seafood, international, breakfast items, cheeses, and desserts. Quality of the food was excellent as was the service. The dining experience here leaves a smile on your face. Hint: Don't get overwhelmed, pace yourself, linger, try many items, and enjoy!
