We have been going to Sheerwater Restaurant for many years celebrating birthdays, Christmas night dinner, and without special occasion. The menu has been changed since the last time we dinned and I will say not for the better. We always get the goat cheese appetizer. It was filled with roasted garlic cloves, Italian olives, tomato and pesto sauce. Now the... More

Found this walking toward the beach by the hotel Coronado. It is one of the hotel restaurants out back. It is overpriced. However we came here twice at lunch because the meals were delicious, and the setting delightful. Will come back

We spent two nights at the Hotel Del. We were there for a luxurious vacation as a treat for our birthdays and anniversary, and money was not an object. Good thing, because the Sheerwater is expensive! However, the food was excellent. We ate two dinners there, and the wait staff the second night was better than the first night. Our... More

This restaurant has a great location and a friendly staff. However, the food is overpriced and it was a long wait for the food. The food was of fine quality.

My friend and our daughter had a wonderful lunch with an ocean view, before going to the beach. The food was exceptional and the waiter made an outstanding margarita for me!

Sitting on the back of the Hotel Del Coronado is an outdoor restaurant with a view of a green lawn (rare in San Diego) and a view of red umbrellas on a wide white sandy beach with an incredible view of the Pacific. Just to sit there melted all stress of daily life away and whisked us into a more... More

Loved it all! Food, setting, service and sunset! Great evening! Had a wonderful pork dish and my boyfriend had the halibut. Nice cocktails and good wine list.

The view and atmosphere is great but so are the prices. This would be ok if the food was good but it was not. The lunch entry of halibut for which we paid around $30 was overcooked and dry. Other entries were very overpriced as well. Cappuccino did not taste anything special. They did not even serve it with either... More

We had the buffet brunch, all choices were good. Good quality food and excellent atmosphere since you can sit outside to enjoy the San Diego weather. Waitress was very friendly.
