We had Thanksgiving lunch in the Crown Room. It was served buffet style. The food was plentiful and the choices numerous. The quality was just average at a very expensive cost. The desserts were the best of all the items available. The service was lacking. Our water was never refilled and our attendant was usually hard to locate. We had... More

We stayed at the Del, so had to do Brunch. $93 per person, and yes, the food is endless and varied. Food quality was very good. Bottomless champagne, mimosas, bloody mary's. I had to say, we were disappointed in the taste of the bloody mary's. Needed more spice. There was also beer tasting in the dining room that day, so... More

The historic room is gorgeous! Ask for a table nearby the window and be sure to make a reservation to ensure availability. The food displays are insane. So many selections rom breakfast items to lunch items to the fabulous bloody mary's garnished with a strip of bacon. Manuel was a great waiter. Overall, a great experience though a little pricey...

Usually we like the less formal eateries where we can wear shorts and be casual. My folks stayed with us at the Del and we ate dinner and brunch in the Crown room. Gorgeous room, Mother loved it.

As long as you're good to spend almost $100 per person, this truly is the most amazing brunch I've ever seen. There is a small bar in the middle of the food area that offers bottomless champagne (they had pomegranate and regular), mimosa's and bloody mary's. There is a donut bar (yes...you have countless options to personalize your freshly made... More

Lovely presentation, but very expensive. I wish I would have sat outside on the patio and had lunch as it was a beautiful day.

Have been going to the Hotel del Coronado since 1993 whenever I am out here and lived in San Diego 2001 to 2003. By far.best brunch based on quality and selection of food and drink. Put it on your bucket list! Is pricey but worth it

The title of this review says it all. Every year we take the Sunday Buffet plunge at the Crown Room. Every year we know we can depend on two things. 1) The price has increased from the year previous. We think it's a game Del Coronado is playing,- how high can we go before they stop coming? Next year, I'm... More
