We went to the Del hotel for lunch at the Sheerwater Restaurant. we were seated in an area that gave us a beautiful view of the beach. I ordered the fish and chips without the side of coleslaw. The fish and chips arrived without the coleslaw but with a nice fruit kabob in it's place. The fish and chips were... More

We wanted a snack for lunch but it would have been too expensive so we went across the street. It would have been nice to stay at the Del and enjoy the view and surroundings.

I've waited about 50 years to visit the Del Coronado hotel, so lunch there was a must. We booked lunch for noon, but arrived way to early so asked to move our booking to 11:30, not a problem they were very accommodating. The setting is glorious, the service was outstanding and friendly and the food superb. I had the "Crab... More

Our family brought us here as part of our trip to San Diego. The views from the restaurant are breathtaking, but you can get that for free without eating here. The food was average -- nothing spectacular about the presentation, flavor or creativity. Our server was great and I wish I could remember her name. My most vivid memory of... More

Reserved table for 5 with Open Table. Special requests were diligently honored. From greeting through dinner service til leaving the property- everyone at the Del was great! Waiter's recommended dishes were spot on. The appetizers were strikingly presented and delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. In a word - special.

While the dinner menu can be a bit limited, the service and ocean views are great! Make sure to ask for a lower patio table. If you are there for breakfast, the breakfast buffet is really good.

If you're looking for a beautiful spot to have a casual evening with an amazing menu and top notch service, make a reservation here at sunset. Incomparable.

Having been here many years ago I wanted to show my husband and son on our trip from the UK. It didn't start well when we got to the car park where the charge was going to be $30 unless we spent $50 in the hotel! We had lunch in the Sheerwater restaurant where there was a very 'busy and... More

This was our final dinner and least favorite meal during our six day SanDiego vacation. Visit the Coronado, walk around....but eat elsewhere, is my advice. Our one server acted like she was doing us a favor by waiting on us.....we sat down to a table missing all sorts of place setting items...they were taking away our plates while many in... More

The lovely ocean view with its beach access does not make up for the overpriced and average food. Fish and chips are probably not worth $30 anywhere! Cole slaw was swimming in dressing. Child's drink was $5. Service was good.
