My husband and I came here for dinner during restaurant week. The food overall was good, loved sitting on the patio and watching the ocean. I docked points because of service. Our waiter was fine, nothing over the top special but he was polite. It was the busser... I'm not sure his title, the gentleman who brings the bread, clears... More

We splurged on dinner here one evening of our trip. It was lovely. We sat on the patio and watched the sunset over the beach. Staff were accommodating to our 2 young children, despite it being a pretty fancy restaurant. It gave us a chance to check out the Del, which is a beautiful property. It's quite expensive ($6 for...

My wife and I have been going to 1500 Ocean for about the past 10 years of so. Aside from the terrific view, we have always enjoyed their fresh and unique food. The service is always very good too. We usually try to get Jesse but he was not working the night we went there. Our server was ok -... More

Have eaten here several times and the food and service are always excellent! They consistently have incredible oysters. Also had the surf and turf and fish special which everyone enjoyed. They have a nice wine list as well. For California the wine prices are a bit high.

We celebrated a birthday here and had three of the pree fixe tasting menus. The food, service and views were all exceptional though I may be paying off the $450 bill on a monthly installment plan. The meal was one of the highlights of our vacation.

The beauty of the wood work is enough, but the marble and artwork will keep you gawking. This hotel is iconic to the area and welcomes looky-loos as well as those who choose to stay for a night or two. The holidays bring added class and sparkle to this gem. Come love it for a while and you're sure to... More

Great view, attentive, professional yet friendly service. The menu has a wide offering of choices, but sea and land-based, though excelling in seafood and fish. Dishes are creative, satisfying and well presented.

Bravo all around for the spectacular setting, excellent service, and fabulous food. We were in the private dining area facing the sea. There was a live band nearby at another event which helped to create a perfect setting. The Hotel Del Coronado is the gem of San Diego so it's always a pleasure to be in its presence. What a...
