Perfect For:
  • Special Occasion
  • Casual
  • Good for Anniversaries
A San Diego tradition since 1969, the Brigantine has received numerous accolades during our 40+ year history: "BEST SEAFOOD", "BEST CASUAL SEAFOOD", "BEST HAPPY HOUR", and even "BEST SWORDFISH IN THE WORLD", according to USA Today - just to name a few.

Well-known for our signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish & Crème Brûlée, the Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks & grilled meats.

A favorite destination for locals & tourists alike, the Coronado Brigantine is located in the heart of the village, immediately adjacent to the historic Hotel Del Coronado.

Completely remodeled in 2016, the "new" Coronado Brigantine is an elegant adaptation of its former self. The addition of an intimate private dining room, a surround-seating bar and street-side outdoor patio have been equally well-received.

The Coronado Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, as well as lunch Monday-Saturday.

The service was OK, but the noise level did not allow for person-to-person conversation.

Food and service were excellent. It’s a pretty simple tastefully decorated place and a bit noisy. It was a bit pricey, soup for all, entrees for three, two small plates and a decent bottle of one came to $260 with tip for 4 people. But, we enjoyed it. Dry much.

The Brigantine was a favorite, however the bar and bar dining area is over the top noisy.
The food is always good, but not great.
If you want a nice place with acceptable food and quiet, you must go to the dining room.
If you want noise and wide open seating, try the bar area.

The service was excellent, the food was very good but I must say I was a little bit disappointed when I order my favorite dish "stuffed shrimp wrapped in beacon with jalapeno white sauce" it was taken off the menu" NO,NO,NO you got to bring it back!!! This is the only reason I am only giving it a 4 star.

We had a corner booth that was quiet and great for talking. One of us has a severe allergy and our server was extremely careful to make sure that was accommodated. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed everything about the restaurant.

FABULOUS!! THANK YOU ALL for making both my mom and dad's birthdays a memorable experience. I gave them a weekend to be San Diego tourists even though they've lived here for 30 yrs. They LOVED the El Cordova Hotel and Miguels and of course Brigantine for the birthday celebration. The COCONUT SHRIMPS ARE THEEEEE BEST IN SD!

Halibut special was excellent and oysters were good for the happy hour price. We sat at the bar and met some really nice people. I did find it interesting that the manager was more concerned about the experience of the local gentleman sitting next to us, but nonetheless we have a great time.

We had an outstanding meal at the Brigantine in Coronado! They offered a special Halibut choice, prepared four different ways. My husband and I were delighted with the presentation and flavor of the fish. Our server was equally outstanding, recommending wines that were just right with the meal and checking with us frequently, although the restaurant was crowded. We love the Brigantine and will return often

Just in Coronado for the weekend and wanted to get away from the hotel for a nice dinner. Happened on this establishment and it was a very nice experience. Menu was fresh and ambiance was pleasant. Staff was very courteous and helpful with selections. I would certainly recommend to any friends or family visiting the area.

It took me hours to decide which restaurant to pick for Oysters. We had never visited San Diego before and needed a nicer dinner spot where we could indulge ourselves. I read too many reviews that “Great Hipster Vibe” and that is not what we were looking for! So very glad I didn’t give up before finding Brigantine! The food, service, ambiance and everything about this this restaurant was perfect. Oysters were amazing! We split the lobster & crab Cobb salad and left room for the huge mud pie ( also shared). It was a perfect evening! Wish they had a restaurant in Arizon

Awful service from the time we checked in for our reservation 15 minutes early. Got seating 15 minutes late only after I went to the desk to complain about other people being seated before us. Bad, back corner table. Never checked on us, no water or bread refill, etc. The worst whiskey old fashioned I have had in quite some time. However, all of our food at the table was VERY good, and a fair value, especially the octopus appetizer. Still not sure I'd go back. Had a better meal and service at the Tavern across the street, with WAY better drinks.

Excellent service - as usual. Went for my Beloved Amada’s (wife) Birthday. Food was good, had one glitch in our order, but was immediately corrected. Our server immediately recognized the occasion and wished my Amada a “Feliz Cumpleaños” (she noticed we were speaking in Spanish). We frequent this location, and it has never let us down. The steak was a little over cooked, but very tasty nonetheless. My wife had the special sea bass - excellent dish. Definitely recommend.

I reserved a table for 7 and entertained 6 family members for a birthday party, overall enjoyed the evening. Wait staff did a great job. Improvements need to be made on the menu. I live locally and frequent your restaurant. I go there for the fresh fish. I have been pleasantly surprised in the past with your menu items. Last Wednesday was the exception. We all ordered different plates, but none were outstanding. It felt like the chef was on vacation and the part time help had prepared the meal. Just was not up to expectations. This was one of your busiest evenings and the wait staff stepped up to the challenge, just did not feel the food was up to caliber. Thanks for listening

Everything was great except the Lobster Tacos were so salty that I think they just forgot to take the ocean out first.
