Finally made it to the Crown Room (actually was closed for a meeting so brunch was held in oceanfront ballroom) for the fancy Del brunch last weekend. First off, the food is incredible and quite the spread. Pretty much everything you would want--breakfast foods, seafood (king crab legs, shrimp, oysters, lobster tortellini), salads, meats (turkey, prime rib, lamb, ham), desserts, candy, too much other stuff to mention.

Anyways, with a per person charge of $79, I would assume the service would be spectacular, which it was not. We spent the whole meal trying to get our waters filled, which only happened once during the meal, then Plates were not taken away quickly--we had to stack our new plates on top of the old ones-- and really it was frankly, disappointing. The venue was not really crowded either, so I don't know if they were short staffed or what the deal was.

Overall, I would go back for the food but would have much higher expectations for the service.

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.

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.

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!

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...
