“Just wonderful”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

My adult sons and I went here for lunch for my 50th birthday. The view was very nice. The wait staff was very attentive. The food was delicious. It is very pricey but for a special occasion it is well worth it. I would definitely go during the day when you can see the ocean and enjoy the view.

“Nice meal without leaving the hotel”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We have a nice meal at Sheerwater. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. It had a nice view of the ocean and the staff was friendly.

“Overpriced, badly prepared food.”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We live a few blocks from the Hotel Del and although we have been here a year, we never took the opportunity to try one of the restaurants at the Del. My hubby and I decided to try it last week and walked through the charming hotel to the Sheerwater. We were greeted very nicely by the hostess who walked us to a table near the patio. First thing we noticed, the cloth seats of the wicker chairs were dirty. Both our seats had crumbs scattered over the cloth. We had to brush off our chairs before we could sit down. The hostess pretended not to notice. The two stars for my rating are due to the view. Very beautiful near the beach. Our waitress greeted us and took our orders. My husband and I both had the Mahi Mahi fish and ice teas to drink. The ice teas were bland which was surprising. We have visited quite a few other restaurants in the Coronado area and the ice teas on the island are usually excellent with lots of flavor. My husband noticed that his fork had some dried food on the tines and we asked the waitress to replace it. We sat and waited for our meals, and waited, and waited. It took us 20 minutes to get our meals and in the meantime no bread was served although we saw bread baskets on other patrons tables. When our meals finally showed up by a gentleman who was not our original waitress, he then asked us if we wanted bread which we both replied with a resounding "Yes, please!" We were so hungry by that point. Unfortunately, both our very small portions of fish were overcooked and tough. The warm quinoa salad on the side was odd and bland. We were definitely not impressed. The bread was not great either. Tough and cold. We ended up paying seventy six dollars for our 'lunch' and left hungry and unsatisfied. For such a nice hotel, they have a pretty lousy restaurant. Not sure how the others in the hotel are but we are not going to try to find out. That was our first and last visit to Hotel Del for dining. Would not recommend. There are plenty of other very good restaurants close by. Miguels for Mexican, Brigantine for American, and Yummy Sushi across the street for Japanese are all very good.

“Delicious and great view!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We sat outside which had a great view of the cliff above the beach. We started with the jumbo prawns which were huge and very tasty. I had the duet with lobster bisque and heirloom tomato and basil pizzetta. They were both delicious! The lobster bisque was tasty and original. It has a cool mango and avocado salsa in the center that nicely set off the hot soup. My husband has one of the fish selections baked in a cast iron. Try the creme brûlée for dessert!
