More of the same, review wise.Great food and service.The wine list is consumer friendly,i.e.good choices on the high AND low price range.Had a very good Pinot and a Cabernet for about $100 [total].Had to spend that much for 1 decent bottle the nite before at Greystone Steakhouse [downtown S.D.].
Our waiter was very helpful in guiding us toward their best app. and entree selections.A "must do" when in S.D.

Thank Ct.Dave

“Great night in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2007

Had a fantastic birthday dinner here while staying at the Del Coronado. Sure it's not cheap but it's worth the price.

Great service (Sebastian), Great wine list (Try the Jarvis Cab-Sav), Excellent Food and a nice warm ambiance.

If you stay at the Del Coronado, stay right there for a great dinner. Don't forget to have a drink and watch the sunset on the deck before hand!

“Great service great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2007

The food at 1500 Ocean was fantastic. we had no information about the restaurant before we went and chose it based on the description. We had an excellent experience. Our service was unobtrusive, but helpful. We had heard about a red velvet cake. It turns out that this restaurant at the Coronado does not serve this particular dessert, but our waiter went and got the cake for us ffrom an adjoining restaurant. We were very impressed with the servers attention to detail and to the quality of the food.
well worth the price.

“Top Notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2007

I was a bit wary when I made the reservation at this restaurant in the Hotel Del Coronado. My wife and I have had too many dinners at high-end hotels where the food and service do not measure up to the hotel's reputation. I am happy to say my concerns were quickly put to rest. The wine list is outstanding with many good values, the food was well prepared and delicious, and the service was first rate. Our waiter, Sebastian, was well informed on the wines and the entire menu. We can be critical due to our love of dining out but this restaurant was first rate across the board and an absolute must visit for any trip to Coronado.
