Everything from the setting to the service, wine list and food was fantastic. They have a dessert where they make ice cream tableside - highly recommend. Great venue for a special dinner out.

The food was good, but the atmosphere was even better. Our waiter was kinda odd. When I asked him for a suggestion for mexican food, he sent us downtown to the homeless area to a counter service place with mediocre food. But Ocean 1500 has good food. You are right on the ocean.

We ate there while staying at Coronado. The food is very good and service amazing. However, price is high for what you get. The portion is on the smaller side. Portion is comparable for fine dining restaurant of this caliber but price is a b it higher for comparable restaurant.

We had a fabulous dinner with friends who live on Coronado Island. The décor and ambience were only surpassed by the food and service! Truly one of the high lights of our trip to San Diego. Loved the way we ordered all courses at once and had excellent champagne all dinner. All courses were excellent, but the mussels appetizer was... More

Beautiful location on the beach, excellent food, great service, wine a bit pricey. Bill came to $260 for two, for a lovely evening it was worth it but I think they could calm down on the wine prices.

Enjoyed a first class dinner on the patio at sunset....unrushed, with wonderful food. Restaurant week offered a lovely and ample 3 course meal for $50. which still ends up to be $200. per couple with wine or cocktails, but was extremely pleasant , as was our waiter.

Though we all enjoyed our lunch, it was really expensive!!!! $18-$20 for a drink and $25-$30 for s sandwich was just a bit much!!! We were just there for a day visit and really wished we would have eaten downtown after we walked around and visited the hotel!! Beautiful place but too expensive for lunch!!!!

I ordered black cod entree and could not have been happier. Perfectly cooked fish, veggies are crunchy. Everything was well seasoned. Service was great too.

Although my husband was in a business trip, we stayed an extra day and so enjoyed the day walking around and visited the Coronado hotel. Not only did we have drinks at the pool bar but I made reservations at 1500 Ocean Restaurant. The service and food was very good and it was so romantic. We said it was our... More
