Seafood
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.

    Wife and I were at a conference at the Del Coronado. Walked into town for this dinner. Was a great experience and a good value. Wife had the mahi. I had the strip steak. Food was excellent and service was even better. A bit loud and for some reason people were walking through the restaurant from outside door to outside door. Would definitely go back.

    We arrived a few minutes before our scheduled reservation and were seated soon after. We were seated on the outside patio area and it was perfect. We traded with another group that were seated right before us. They needed more room and we were able to have a smaller table. It was a perfect trade. The food was great. I had the pork chops and they were awesome. Prepare to take home leftovers, Husband had the Father's Day Lobster. Both entrees were perfectly served. I should have taken pictures. We had the creme brulee which is a favorite dessert. A wonderful end to father's day weekend. Our server was on top of everything and she was both helpful and attentive.

    Table in parking lot lacks ambiance. Not great to eat near parked cars. Needs plants or some type of separation from Parked cars. Waitress was distracted. Served gluten meal instead of requested gluten free meal. Restaurant ran out of several items after we placed orders. Overall a disappointing outing.

    Our waiter never offered any drinks before coming to our table and asking if we were ready to order food. We had to remind our waiter if we could order drinks (waters for the table). We ordered a kids apple juice that never came out. The last item out was my salad. I was the last one to eat at my table and had to remind my waiter I was waiting on a simple salad. They got the order of a fish taco wrong. We asked for the fish to be grilled and it was fried so we waited another 30mins for them to bring out the correct order.

    This was lunch for Father's Day. My fish and chips french fries were a bit on the soggy side but the fish was yummy! My son's lobster tacos were not worth the $26.00 price, he would not order again. My husband's swordfish tacos were not warm enough temperature wise. The service was good and the atmosphere in a parking lot was fine. We were a bit disappointed but will be more aware when we decide to go back!

    So let me start by saying we went for brunch. But as they say don’t have high expectations for a place if it’s not there specialty. French toast was hard as a rock and dry. It sat up for a minute so it wasn’t even Luke warm. Chicken and waffles was just a flattened chicken breast with flour and mot even a pinch of salt. Recommendation is for chef to visit restaurant that serves to get a great recipe or just take off of menu. Now the fondue, oysters and shrimp were great. But I definitely wouldn’t return for breakfast. Our server was not the friendliest of possibly overwhelmed, but we had 3 different other personnel bringing our food out so idk what was going on. Arrive extra early as parking is crazy. But it’s a great atmosphere overall.

    Pre-theater, Saturday evening dinning. Swordfish and pork-chop entrees were preceded by excellent Brig and wedge salads which had just followed grilled oysters. Reservations strongly recommended for indoor and outdoor dinning areas. Sidewalk tables may be available for walk-in customers. Come early and enjoy the beach vibe with a Brig margarita or a lemon drop.

    After fifty years at this location, it is okay to get a cappuccino machine. The Server said, they would take business from local coffee shops....not a good response, when we are literally at your restaurant, eating, spending and a Starbucks run is not in the cards.

    This was our fourth time visiting the Brigatine on Coronado Island in the last year. The past three times we visited this restaurant our food was amazing and the service was outstanding. This past visit, the food was only mediocre and the service was good. We always start with the brussel sprouts, so we went in that direction. The brussel sprouts were very good; however, a little on the overly sweet side. The dish is usually more savory than this last visit--which really makes the dish POP with flavor. My wife and I both ordered the Macadamia encrusted mahi... which we were also looking forward too. My dish was very good; however, my wife's fish was dry and over cooked and made for a sad trip to a restaurant that we were excited to visit. Overall, the service was good. Our waitress was very pleasant. Our daughter had the New England clan chowder and it was not what she had before. The flavors were slightly off as if there was a hint of rosemary and over salted. If we went back again, we would probably order a different dish. We're hoping this was a one-off time where the food was only "alright," considering the last three times have been unforgettable.
