breakfast buffet is quite extensive with freshly baked breads and cakes. Omelets are custom made. bountiful fruit selection. Dinners on a heated patio were good, but somewhat over priced;

Sheerwaters, the birds, feed on a diet consisting primarily of fish. The same is true for the menu at Sheerwaters, which makes it a bit tougher choice for those of us who cannot consume anything fish or fish-related. Still, I have to say, Sheerwaters does an excellent job, given that the menu is primarily seafood. We went for lunch on... More

We ate here on our first night. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the cocktails were great. Expect to pay typical hotel prices for your dinner. Choose a table outside next to a heat lamp. Great for ocean views and kids can run around the grassy courtyard in front!

Located with outdoor dining that overlooks the beach, this ain't a bad place to spend a couple hours! Obviously, being located at the Hotel Del Coronado helps, as the setting is timeless, beautiful and relaxing despite being somewhat crowded at times. I liked the Sheerwater, and I would rate it much higher if it weren't for the lunch menu selection.... More

We were lucky to be walk-ins! We had a light meal, soup, salads, wine (the 9 oz. is the best deal), and enjoyed ourselves.

This restaurant is located in the del Coronado hotel and quite a nice hotel which gives a certain ambiance to the entrance of the restaurant. We had dinner there and food was very good and the service friendly and professional. As a European not a fan of having the waiter ask for first name and then use it, maybe it... More

Lovely selection of food, good service and a fraction of the $100 Sunday brunch. You still get to experience the legendary Hotel's ambiance.

Yes the grilled ribeye with truffle butter was a great cut of meat and ideally cooked. The lobster bisque was pretty good. The server has personality and solid product knowledge. Sitting outside while the sunsets... the venue the location the Davd a sea, these are the best attributes. It's noisy due to the naval helicopters passing back and forth. But... More
