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...

Often you'll find that the restaurants on the coast with the best view are of mediocre quality. Not here: top quality food with a fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean. Fantastic.

Felt a little like wedding crashers in a good way, watching the setup and festivities out on the grand lawn as we enjoyed a leisurely dinner. Oysters, spot prawns for me, filet for the hubby. Brought our own Chataeuneuf de Pape, $25 corkage which is reasonable. A trial dessert was offered and we went for it. Kind of a peanut... More

Our one big formal family dinner in San Diego and we choose this restaurant. Great outdoor view can't beat it Service was very good Menu is very limited in choices and extremely overpriced for the quality. Surf turf was fair Steak was ok. Carrot cake was terrible Needless to say we would NOT return to this restaurant.
