Reviewed November 14, 2012

Breakfast buffet at $24 was sumptious. Available for kids at half price. Excellent scones, fresh salads, omelets to order...The staff recognized us and welcomed us back each time was appeared, remembering what kinds of coffee we liked.

“Nice food, predictably overpriced”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We had lunch there on the first day as we did not have time to walk to the restaurant area across the bridge, and the food was nice but costly, as you would expect in a hotel restaurant. They also have a buffet at a fixed price which might be a better choice if you are very hungry.

Reviewed October 27, 2012

Love the location, can sit inside, or out by the bay front with lovely views of coronado and the bay. Food very good, as were the service and value. Nice decor too. Excellent breakfast buffet or a la carte,
