The breakfast buffet is awesome! We ate outside and had a view of the ocean. There are so many options on the buffet it would be not to find something you like.

This restaurant has a great view of the hotel lawn and the ocean. It is a lovely place to sit. We arrived for a late lunch (1:30) without a reservation and were asked to return in 10 minutes for seating. Today is hot for San Diego--in the upper 80's with an intense sun. The waitress took our drink orders and... More

Setting is spectacular, service was very good, however our badly overpriced lunch ($60 for 2) food quality was disgusting. How can you screw up a turkey wrap? Use old, dry, left-over turkey & ingredients. Came for the view, & expected to get ripped off, however did not expect really bad food. Ugg!

This is a fabulous restaurant for a special occasion or for a lovely evening at the resort. The management gave me a birthday gift and made the evening very special! Our waiter Manny could not have been nicer and went out of his way to provide a wonderful evening and impeccable service. The Chilean Sea Bass was delicious! The ocean... More

Heard many rave reviews of the hotel. Decided to stop for lunch. The waiter was very snooty, acted as if we shouldn't be there. The food was very pricey for average taste. However, the banana foster bread pudding was outstanding!!!! Again I am sure we were paying for the outstanding views of the ocean. It was breathtaking.

I was encouraged by a management response to a previous reviewer on Tripasvisor who complained about only being able to get coffee in paper cups when they were looking to have the "resort experience" and sit back and enjoy their coffee with a view. The manager replied that this experience is available in the report's restaurants, including the Sheerwater, and... More

We had breakfast here and had the buffet. I highly recommend it as the food offerings were more than adequate and the waiter was very friendly and good.

I booked a table for four whilst on holiday in San Diego. We wanted to visit the famous hotel and have dinner overlooking the sea. This is a seriously over priced restaurant which thinks it's fine dining. Its not! Our food was cold and decidedly average quality. Service was okay. It certainly wasn't attentive. the server delivered 3 appetizers and... More
