Coronado Boathouse 1887
Graduation CelebrationThis was just our second time at the Boathouse. The food and staff were terrific. The table we had was in an awkward spot and didn't allow us a view but the rest of the evening was quite nice. I think this restaurant is a great place for small parties but isn't set up for those larger than 6 or eight.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the staff was exceptional. Our waiter explained the entrees which helped us choose the perfect meal. We found it especially enjoyable that the owner took the time to visit with us at our table and to thank us for visiting his resturant. A rare treat.
Highly recommend this resturant.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good place for good foodThis night, being a Monday after Mothers day, was very light, so obviously noise would not be an issue, but I dont' remember noise being an issue on previous visits. Service is always perfect, and the food was excellent in portion, presentation, and quality. My slight disappointment was in the 5 of us being seated at a table for 4 - with small 8" pullouts. Makes for a rather crowded table. Made more annoying when the place had few guests, at least at 5-7pm. This is the first time this has happened (out of maybe a dozen visits). While not inexpensive, I think the prices are fair for the food & service, we just limit how frequently we go, maybe a couple times per year.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the Boathouse forWe went to the Boathouse for a Mother's Day brunch. The restaurant was noisier than I expected but it was Mother’s Day, you can only sound proof a 125 year old building so much, and ultimately it was not that much of a distraction. The food was good and at a reasonable price for the venue. We enjoyed eating on the water. Living in North County, the food or location taken separately would not specifically draw me down to the restaurant. However, the combination of the two does merit the drive down the 163.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMALWAYS BEYOND EXSPECTATIONSWe have never been disapointed with the Service or the quality presentations of the food.. An experience we always look forward to.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful, delicious, great serviceMy husband took me here for Mother's Day brunch and I like that I didn't feel overdressed (I like to dress it up) and the ambiance/service was superb. The food was absolutely delicious, fresh, and they kept it simple by not adding so much spice or sauces that you loose the main ingredient like the fish. The crab stack was excellent as well as the shrimp cocktail. The salmon was also lightly flavored with curry, not drowned, which I appreciate.
The kids came so it was also a good environment for kids as they had a kids menu and the server was great with them!
We all had a great time5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Mother's Day meal!Delicious food, great service and a spectacular view.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful settingOur food was well prepared and the service attentive. We were told we could not reserve specific tables and when we arrived were seated upstairs overlooking the marina. After drinks we were asked to move since the waitress said the table had been reserved for a party of 5. We were a bit put out being moved away from our original table.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day Brunch!I made the reservation for this restaurant two nights before Mother's Day. The menu didn't have much variety, but it was decently priced for being in Coronado, and the photos looked great. When we got there, we got a table right by a big window, and had a nice view of the boats and docks. My mom LOVED it there! Service was great, the alcoholic drinks were strong (which was good for us), and the atmosphere was busy and energetic. Our family loved how lively everyone was, and the manager was always walking around to greet the guests. We will definitely dine here again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecomendStarted with an excellent martinin at the cozy upstairs bar. Dinner with a great wview of an evening boat race was perfect. Server particularly attentive and helpful. All in all a a wonderful experience with a delightful ambience.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food at the marinaHad a wonderful anniversary dinner at this restaurant. Waiter was very attentive and engaged in making sure that we enjoyed the experience. Fried oysters were outstanding- and the coconut fried shrimp were amazing.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't order steaksThere were five of us who all ordered steaks . They were all tasty, but tough and rubbery. Next time well try fish.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been coming to thisWe have been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years. We were concerned when the Chart House let it go to the new owners several years ago that the quality of service and food might slip.
I am happy to report that the food and service are equal to or better than our beloved Chart House.
We come to San Diego often and typically make this our dinner spot.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service haveThe food and service have never been disappointing. It is a place where we go when we want a guaranteed special and fabulous meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is not a statement onThis is not a statement on the resturant but more on the casualness of San Diego. I am sorry but if I am paying $35.95 for a ribeye, please do not wear shorts and flip-flops. I understand that the resturant is on the boat dock but at least wear business casual.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. One of theVery good food. One of the best dinners we have had out.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceI very rarely take time to write reviews, but for the Boathouse I will definitely make an exception. I initially booked a table for two at 7pm, but some friends met up with us so I contacted the Boathouse at short notice to amend the reservation at short notice. Absolutely no problem at all, the staff were extremely freindly and helpful and we were now a group of 6.The location is stunning, the building lovely and the staff superb. The menu is comprehensive, as is the wine and drinks list. If you need any information about the food, its source or preparation, the staff are on hand to explain whatever you need to know. Once you are ready to order they will accomodate your request in whatever way they can.This made a great trip even bette4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always deliciousThe food is always delicious and the staff is fabulous.

This restaurant definitely fit the bill. The service was outstanding. Everyone was very attentive. We had to send the fish back to the kitchen a couple times due to it being undercooked and eventually ended up changing the order to scallops but the entire time the waiters were right on top of it. Surprisingly the other food was so good and the staff was so friendly this didn't bother us in the slightest. The artichoke appetizer and the creole shrimp appetizer are a must try! The view was also great, right on the bay. We will definitely visit the Boathouse again! Thanks for a great day trip!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a fantastic meal on ourHad a fantastic meal on our last night in Coronado - would certainly recommend it.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
