“the Sunday champagne brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is an expensive indulgence, but I consider it more memorable than many other expensive meals we've had. Please, don't waste the experience by just having breakfast. Our menu included beef short ribs and cauliflower gratin ... smoked trout ... tuna sashimi ... uncommon cheeses ... leg of lamb ... prime rib ... and house-label California sparkling wine with pomegranate juice.

“Special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Before my kids were born, I took my wife both to the Hotel Del to spendthe night but also to eat in the crown room. Very special but very expensive! Go for any special occasion and start a family...we did!

“Making a buffet into elegant dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

My wife and I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Crown Room and found it quite enjoyable. The food was delicious,plentiful and well presented. The Chef made lobster thermidor for me and it was out of this world. The decorations in and around the hotel are worth the price of the meal.
The ice skating rink was open and really added a nice touch. The price is a little high but if you don't do it everyday it is well worth it. Bring the family...

“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.

Thank you for your kind endorsement and we are thrilled that you enjoyed our award-winning Brunch. It does have a vast selection of food and, of course, if you come and experience Brunch, we do validate parking. We hope to welcome you back again soon for some king crab legs.
