1500 OCEAN at the Hotel Del Coronado
Great!Had a fabulous dinner with wonderful service! Paul was a great waiter! The sea bass and mushroom rissoto were amazing!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome timeEverything was absolutely perfect. The service was great and our waiter was attentive and knowledgable of the menu. The atmosphere and the view was relaxing and breathtaking. I would return for dining and I would highly recommend this to anyone especially if it would be for a special occasion.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery happyWe stopped going to Ocean 1500 a while ago when the prices became ridiculous. They have changed chefs since then and attitudes also. We decided to give it another go on the recommendation of an associate. Had a wonderful meal, my husband saying it was the best steak he ever had. The ribeye was a good two and a half inches think. The Brussels sprouts were heavenly. Definitely go back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely delicious!Don't miss the opportunity for an amazing meal! I will definitely return the next time I am back in the San Diego area!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceAfter back-to-back evenings at 1500 Oceans, we give it the very hightest marks. Also Mark had a lot to do with our enening.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Small but interesting menu. The food was excellent both in preparation and presentation as well as taste. The service was top notch. Highly recommended.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile it was an extraordinaryWhile it was an extraordinary experience to dine at the famed Hotel del Coronado and the food was indeed good, it did not really measure up to the type of cuisine that we are used to in the Napa Valley. The price was actually a bit too steep for the quality of the food. However, our waiter Mark, enhanced the dining experience greatly. Having grown up in the area, he filled us in on many aspects of the history of the hotel. I am glad that we ate there this once, but I doubt that we would again.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner experience in 2012-3Modern decor but upscale. Quiet for a fine dinner and long conversation. Exceptional waitstaff - knowledgeable, friendly, not instrusive but there when they should be. Food was excellent in every respect from the mussels through the salmon and ribeye and on to dessert. Perfect presentation, cooked as requested. Right mix of flavors and a couple of new tastes which were well received by all of our party. If you want a memorable dining experience for a special occasion, I recommend 1500 Ocean.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMdoes not quite live up to hypeA highly recommended restaurant, that did not quite live up to its billing, in terms of the food quality. whilst presentation of the food was excellent, the real test in taste was not quite up to its five star pretensions. I had the duck which was overcooked. My wife had the scallops which were undercooked.
On the plus side - a very nice restaurant, thankfully with enough space to actually enjoy conversation. Cocktails were good!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative food, Terrific ServiceInnovative pork and beef rib eye presentations. Delicious! Sommelier recommended a great Cabernet (Coho) that didn't break the bank. Only one concern: Fresh oysters were served quickly, so I am afraid they were pre-shucked. Consequently, some were missing their liquor and were dry.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing all aroundWe were initially put off by the fact that there was a new chef and a new menu, but quickly forgot all about that when we started eating from it. The service was the best I have ever had. We ordered slightly off menu (from the old menu) and asked for a cheese plate and wine pairings for each course. The somelier came out and explained each pairing and was spot on. After the meal was over the new chef came out and met us which is always a special treat. All in all this place is amazing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded expectationsWe were on vacation and celebrating a birthday. I knew the view would be gorgeous but the food was great! Two young semi adventurous eaters deemed it the culinary highlight of their trip. Flavored were well thought out and everything married up well. Dessert was exciting with a much needed change of pace in selection and taste. Who knew curry ice cream could be so delicious. Staff was exceptional with the delight of having a personal meet and greet with the chef de cuisine. Outstanding.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion?I made this reservation for my parents who were celebrating their anniversary and staying at the hotel (the siblings paying for it). We heard they had a great dinner, really enjoyed the food, but they never mentioned that the restaurant acknowledged the reason for their visit. How about a dessert that has the words Happy Anniversary on the plate, like other upscale restaurants do? Nope, nothing of the sort. If I hadn't mentioned this reason (their anniversary) in my comments when making the reservation OR calling the restaurant ahead of time to make sure they read those comments, I might not have been so disappointed. My parents weren't expecting anything, but I was...Don't think I'll be going here nor recommending it to any friends.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingNothing bad can be said about this restaurant. Great food and outstanding ingredients.
I didn't eat this well since I moved to the US.
The burrata was great and even better was the vitello tonnato. Interesting choice in terms of spiciness of the sauce and no doubt that there is no way you could find a better quality of veal.
Although the risotto was not a classic recipe was interestingly put together and the capers were a perfect ingredient to match with the lime and mint.
The service was great as well!!!
Satisfied 100%5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great wonderful restaurant in SDI don't know what took so long to arrive, but finally we have a restaurant for fine dining that's about food and service--and not about trendy gflitz. Importantly, our food was delicious, with fine ingredients and subtle flavor combinations. Service was outstanding. We'll be going back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding and accommodating.THis place is phenomenal. The waiter we had was exceptional. I have high-maintenance food needs and the waiter and chef were so accommodating. I don't have one single negative thing to say.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIf Mark is your waiter - heIf Mark is your waiter - he is the best. Very helpful, attentive, low-key assistance. Location and view are spectacular. Pricey - so not an everyday place to go for dinner. Dinner for 2 with 3 drinks and only 1 desert was $200. Would definitely go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is my absolutelyThe restaurant is my absolutely favorite place to eat. Even my guest stated that is was her new favorite restaurant. We were greeted warmly as we walked in the door. I have had at least 5 different waiters/waitress over the past 6 months and each of them is uniquely skilled and service oriented. I had the roast lamb and charred Brussels sprouts for the first time, OMG, fantastic. I will be back soon.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Oceanside DinnerWas a little nervous going here because I was worried they would rely to much on the DEL name and not focus on the food. First of all the setting is great, with views of the Pacific Ocean. I liked the unique cocktails that the mixologist offered (it always makes for a better dinner to start with an original cocktail)... We did the full shmear with appetizer, salad and dessert. Stuck with the seafood for the entrees (bass and scallops) which were both excellent. Highly recommended.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service and food.Outstanding service and food.

(5:30 reservation) She's great at restaurants, and loves real food. The kids menu was perfect for her! A flat iron steak with fork smashed baby tri colored potatoes and broccolini! She loved it. (She doesn't really love your standard pbj, Mac and cheese, or chicken fingers. She's a foodie already.) I had the salmon. Outstanding. My husband had the parpadele bolognese. Amazing! We loved the mix green salad. Beautiful presentation of food. Chefs brought out all of the food. Nice touch. Then our waitor checked on us. Delish cocktails. Beautiful sunset. We ate outside.

Starter: Grilled artichoke was very oily and had and overly salty sauce. Sides: Brussel sprouts were salty but decent for a fried vegetable. Mushroom dish was yummy but oily. Entree: Sea scallops and Rib-eye were delicious!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated our wedding anniversaryCelebrated our wedding anniversary here. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu.

It is a great place for a romantic dinner.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNow Number 1 in San DiegoAnother wonderful dining experience at 1500 Ocean, the finest restaurant in the region. The delicious house speciality salads, artichoke special and table starters were followed by scrumptious seafood, a rib eye extravaganza, and a pappardelle pasta worthy of the finest in Rome. A terrific reserve wine and a great dolce completed our experience as we viewed another sold out house. A lovely room and friendly waiters complemented our evening, and, all this came at a surprisingly reasonable price. Be part of the greatest dinner scene in San Diego, visit 1500 Ocean, where Chef Robert offers the finest in dining.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA Spectacular RestaurantChef Robert continues to dazzle with his creative and delicious dishes. Saturday nights find us in 1500 Ocean whenever we are in town. We just love the atmosphere, the gracious service, the stunning views and the food, which is the finest in the region. Try thisplaceonce and you shall return ever more. It is finest dining at its most gracious and at surprisingly low prices. Thr best dining value you shall find in San Diego.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Robert is AwesomeIf you dined at 1500 Ocean drung restaurant week, read no further as you are aware that there is no finer dining venue in the region. if not, what are you waiting for? Chef Robert's winter menu is just spectacular. Our last visit we enjoyed the finest of oysters, a hand made Mozarella that would shame Naples, and entrees fit for royalty. My wife enjoyed a rib eye center cut cooked to perfection, and I devoured the finest seabass I have ever eaten. Words fail to describe the care take to produce these magnificent dishes. And la dolce, the finest is homemade Italian pastrys. Lemon Cheese cake so light it fights to stay on thr plate. For us, it would not be Saturday night without 1500 Ocean.1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience inA wonderful experience in all respects. The prices are high, however.
