“Everything was Perfect - Fantastic Meal, Unforgettable”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Romantic - Check
Great Service - Check
Incredible View and Incredible Setting - Check
Great Wines at All Price Levels - Check

All the food was great but it was the details that made it more than good, fantastic, the citrus broth with the mussels, the polenta and sauce with the veal cheek, just perfect incredible roasted pear on the appetizer salad, the crunchy, yummy, amazing brussel sprouts with the pork chop. The four-course meal is a great deal and experience. I recommend the ice wine with the dessert.

Pretty much perfect, only item for improvement was the beans served with the lamb could have used less salt.

I can hardly wait to dine here again!

“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Went here for business and had fantastic service...I had the sea bass with braised greens and fennel....It was a little bland but the vanilla brown sugar crème brulee made up for it, as id the champagne with rosemary. It's a beautiful placed with a wonderful setting, but the Sheerwater next door got noisy and we did not get the water view we requested, despite a very late reservation and a nearly empty restaurant. This place is good but is pricey and the chef can't rest on the location's laurels.

“Good ambience and delicious food”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We enjoyed the set three course meal in a pretty setting at the del Coronado. The service was excellent and the meals very, very good! The squash soup was the best I have ever had. Both my sea bass and my husband's lamb were excellent. The desserts were also delicious. The atmosphere was quiet and unhurried and the service first rate. Go for a romantic dinner!
