“Delicious and Delightful”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We loved sitting on the outdoor terrace overlooking the beach. It was fun to imagine the ladies of the past wandering this beautiful hotel in their long dresses. The food was fabulous and they were very accomodating to gluten-free needs.

“great breakfast buffet”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you don't want to drop $80+ dollars for the breakfast buffet at The Crown Room of the Hotel del Coronado, gives this restaurant a try! The food is delicious and the omelets made to order are excellent. There is a variety of items for everyone and if you sit on the patio, you have a great view of the ocean. Great, attentive service.

“dinner overlooking the beach”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I had a lovely golden grouper for dinner and it was delicious. Our server was friendly and seemed to actually enjoy his job and brought a wine sample to make sure I would like it. He had great recommendations as well. Outdoor dining is lovely

“Boring fish”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We have been staying at Del 2 times before but Friday Nov. 2nd 2012 came just to dine at Sheerwater which recommends seafood as its speciality "Fish by the Sea" they say.We were very disappointed. Both halibut (27$) and Grouper (32$) were boring and not perfectly prepared. I can't judge how fresh the fish was but they both were overdone, not tender and juicy. They was no sauce (lemon butter they say) and no garniture, veggies or potatoes. Boring and expensive I must say. We heard about a new Chef at their 1500 Ocean but they/he should have a look at the fish guality at Sheerwater.

“Excellent Brunch!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

My husband had never been to the Hotel del Coronado and we were looking for a place to get something to eat. We came across the Sheerwater restaurant while walking around the beautiful grounds of the hotel. It was 10:00am on a Monday and the restaurant was serving a breakfast brunch. What a treat! We sat outside with a beautiful view of the coastline and enjoyed one of the best brunches I've ever had. Eggs made to order, omelets, bacon, ham, sausage and potatoes (try the brisket potatoes) as well as pancakes, and other specialty items had us going back for seconds and thirds. The pastry items were all freshly made and we especially enjoyed the glazed and sugared donut holes. There was a nice selection of fresh fruit, cereal and bread items. The Bloody Marys were just spicy enough.The price, $25.00 each without drinks or gratuity, was well worth it and made our first meal in the San Diego area a memorable one.
