“Worthwhile!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We ate at Sheerwater on a recent trip to San Diego. The ambience was lovely - candle lit and on the beach and the food was very good. The service was attentive and cheerful and the wine list was more than adequate. No complaints!

“Nice”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This is a historic hotel with a perfect location. The fish & chips are breaded very heavily so don't order unless that is your preference.
The hotel common areas could use a good scrub and some updating, particularly in the bathrooms and the inside dining area.

“Amazing Outdoor Dining”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Sitting under an umbrella on the patio overlooking the ocean, this is one of the all time best dining atmospheres you will find anywhere. The menu is very family friendly and complete. Only negative is that it is so popular sometimes the wait is too long.

“Hotel Del Coronado - Excellence by the Sea”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I treated my wife, daughter and husband, and their two youngsters, to a luncheon at Hotel Del Coronado's Sheerwater restaurant. Although there was a large crowd at noon on the Friday we visited, we were comfortably accommodated within twenty minutes. Tito, our waiter, was precise with his descriptions and recommendations on the menu. Drink selections, such as white sangria (unusual), were carefully explained, and delivered smartly within a few minutes after ordering. The luncheon selections, tomato bisque and half a turkey sandwich for my wife, crab cakes for my daughter, fried shrimp for my son-in-law, veggie burgers for the two youngsters, and plump diver scallops for me, were all perfectly prepared and delicious. Since we were celebrating four closely-spaced birthdays, Tito was empathetic with our quandary in choosing from several mouth-watering desserts, and was most helpful during the final decision. Again, the cobblers, cheesecakes, and gelatos were superb, and contributed to the very memorable meal that we enjoyed at this renowned, historic hotel.
