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.

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day, 2 night stay at the Hotel Del Coronado! The resort was elegant and historic to see, but very modern in areas like pool, spa, restaurants, room amenities, and wifi! Very enjoyable time!!!!

The atmosphere is so dreamy, and movie like. The hotel is very pricey, but we find that we can enjoy all the wonder... More

This plush and exquisite hotel is right on the beach. We stay at the resort across the street because we can't afford this one. However, shops and restaurants are fabulous.

Let me start with saying I have zero issue dropping serious coin on food. But I have issues with dropping serious coin on mediocre food. That being said, I absolutely love the Del. Been going for years. But I only ate at 1500 once, and won't go again. The ambiance and view are of course first rate, as are all... More

Great view, inside Hotel del Coronado. A little pricey, but good. On weekend nights the live music was fun!
