“Average food, higher price, nice view.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Beautiful view that is worth some extra price. Smoked salmon BLT and Diver scallops were good, but the lobster bisque had an overwhelming taste of mainly sea salt, which lingered for hours. Three scallops were served for $25, and one was grainy with sand. Overcooked vegetable accompaniment was unimpressive for the price. Margarita was a huge disappointment for $15. If you must, okay, but maybe better to see the view here or nearby and eat elsewhere where I would hope you would find better food or a lower price for the same quality food.

“Food Poisoning-what a way to end a vacation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Same menu as 1500 Ocean --- just a price different. We ate outside and very hard to see. My water glass and silverware had to be returned because it was dirty. Not sure if the scalllops were undercooked but 3 hours later I was terribly ill.

Couldn't coordinated tab with the bar order, wouldn't seat us even though the place was nearly empty inside, food was flavorless and overpriced.

“Romantic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is a restaurant on the water side of the famous Hotel Del Coronado. The ambiance, as you might expect, was sublime. We arrived in time to see the sunset from the terrace over drinks. The menu is somewhat limited, but everything on it was unusual in a good way. My fiancee had the lamb, which was excellent and I had the golden grouper, which would have been excellent, but was a bit overcooked. Service was a bit disappointing, as it took us 20 minutes to get our drinks and a total of 2 1/2 hours to finish our meal, without dessert. We were able to relieve our disappointment by strolling down the huge beach and boardwalk after dinner, and once again touring the interior of this legendary hotel. I must admit the clientele was somewhat disappointing, as I saw everything from overly large people in cutoff jeans to potential super-models-My old-fashioned view is that this landmark deserves better

We are pleased that you enjoyed the romantic ambiance at Sheerwater and your dining experience. We strive to provide legendary service but it appears we fell short and apologize for the delays you encountered. The Del has a long history of romance and we're happy you're now a part of it.

“Fabulous Paella!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Day trip for us from San Diego.
Went to the Del for lunch.
My husband had the Paella and it was soooooo yummy! Lots of fish, great broth.
I had the pulled pork sandwich. Pretty good.
Great Piña Colada's!
Service wasn't the greatest, they were very busy. Could use more wait staff probably.
Would return.
