“Excellent location, Excellent service, Really good food”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

First, if you're here, you're at the Hotel Del Coronado. I don't know if there is a better San Diego location to have dinner.
I went for a business dinner. About 16 of us. I usually dread these things, and the only reason I went along was the above stated reason. The experience was well worth the time.

First and foremost, the service was truly exceptional. The staff made us feel at ease and made us feel at ease through out the entire meal. Glasses were filled quickly, and plates were cleared in a timely manner. And as with all exceptional service, it was nearly invisible.

As far as the food, it was very good. Well prepared, and thought out. I would recommend the yellow tail sashimi, and the chipolte chocolate cake. You can't really go wrong in between. Afterward, have a stroll on the beach and enjoy the magnificent Hotel Del.

“Wow, wow, wow”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Food is good, close to great and very creative. The thing that makes this place hands down is the beautiful view. Sunset, surf rolling in and all the beautiful tourists strolling along the walkways at sunset. All I can say is wow. Really spectacular setting. Service was great as well.

“Magnificent fine dining”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Absolutely amazing. We had a wonderful table outside with a beautiful view of the sea and the people walking by (thanks concierge for the booking!). We had a four course meal with matching wines from the sommelier and all were superb. We were also surprised at the generous portion sizes. Meal and wines could not be faulted - one course we had Bollinger matched. :-) Of course the final bill was suitably high but it was worth every penny.

“Beyond Perfect”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I have to say this was the perfect dinner on our vacation from LA to Laguna to San Diego. I did the tasting menu with wine. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent the lamb check just melted in your mouth and the wine pairings were excellent with each dish. Favorites the ice wine but I love sweet wines. The staff where attentive and explained each meal and the wine parings. When I get back to San Diego this will be a place to revisit and that is rare for use to redo restaurants. Well worth the price!!
