“The Best Brunch in San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Feel like royalty and walk into a fabulous ballroom to an amazing spread. My nine year old would be happy to spend the rest of his life in a suspended time loop on a Sunday morning in the Crown Room.

“the Sunday champagne brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is an expensive indulgence, but I consider it more memorable than many other expensive meals we've had. Please, don't waste the experience by just having breakfast. Our menu included beef short ribs and cauliflower gratin ... smoked trout ... tuna sashimi ... uncommon cheeses ... leg of lamb ... prime rib ... and house-label California sparkling wine with pomegranate juice.

“Special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Before my kids were born, I took my wife both to the Hotel Del to spendthe night but also to eat in the crown room. Very special but very expensive! Go for any special occasion and start a family...we did!

“Making a buffet into elegant dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

My wife and I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Crown Room and found it quite enjoyable. The food was delicious,plentiful and well presented. The Chef made lobster thermidor for me and it was out of this world. The decorations in and around the hotel are worth the price of the meal.
The ice skating rink was open and really added a nice touch. The price is a little high but if you don't do it everyday it is well worth it. Bring the family...
