We ate here twice for breakfast because we enjoyed it so much the first time. The dining area is perfectly situated to take in the views of the water all while enjoying a great buffet! I didn't know it was a buffet when I booked it, but was very excited to have access to all the food. They offer a... More

Ok, to be fair the view is outstanding. The decor very appropriate, the staff extremely friendly and service very good. Location is outstanding. But.... food is just ok. But $60 for a bowl of soup and splitting a sandwich demands that the food be at least better than just ok. We had the lobster bisque, lots of cream, toasted breadcrumbs... More

The Good: friendly staff and great location by the beach. The breakfast omelette was good. The bad: Way over priced for what you get. The buffet style breakfast is average. For the price, I really expected a great breakfast, but just got disappointed.

It is beautiful to sit outside, enjoy the view and the weather; however, it is just a breakfast buffet...nothing more and nothing less...so for $80 for two you might only want to treat yourself once a visit.

If you are on a budget you have no business eating anywhere at the Del Coronado -- it is a luxury hotel with a private Beach. If you want a great meal and really don't care what it costs, this is the place. Ocean view seating, gas fires if it is chilly, great service. Expansive buffet, everything top quality. I... More

We dine here every time we are in the San Diego area. It is wonderful and quite varied in the menu selection. The service is always top notch! Bon appetite.

When we were seated for lunch, I asked for a glass of water and the busboy appeared with a very large blue bottle and in broken English said something about water, to which I said "Yes, Please." I have been to restaurants before where they serve tap water out of glass bottle so I though nothing of it, until I... More

The drinks were great but expensive. The views and atmosphere are amazing. You won't forget the experience but the pricetag is higher than the quality of food.

The bread was warm and delicious and included a gluten free flat bread. The food was attractive. We were given options for substitutions. A fresh catch fish is offered. The halibut was very good.
