We ate there for the first time while vacationing in Coronado. Everything was a 10 - the food, waitress, atmosphere, noise level, you name it. Definitely going back!

We enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Chez Loma and liked the variety of menu selections. The dishes we ordered were delicious and prepared perfectly. While not crowded when we dined, the service was reasonable and we were not constantly interrupted.

Our server Sabrina was attentive & personable from the start! It is a charming restaurant off Orange in the center of Coronado located in a quaint older house. Our dinners were beautifully presented and delicious! Our party of four sampled the beet salad & French onion soup, coq au vin, peppered filet mignon and duck a la orange. Prepared martinis and wine and desserts - including a gingerbread with caramel sauce were perfect! A lovely dining experience! We will return.

Chez Loma is a great place for a date or quiet dinner. It is set in a historic house with a main seating area and various nooks and some smaller rooms with a few tables. White tablecloths and quiet. There is a bar out front, which is a bit more casual and volume is a bit higher. This is more of an upscale place in terms of clientele (read: not a drunken party spot, but not full of old folks either). Their prices are on the higher end, but moderate for the high quality of food. Wine list is limited but good picks are on it. Service is great, friendly, without being too proud of themselves. I only go there every several years because it is far from where I live, but it has been CONSISTENTLY excellent, which is no easy feat in the restaurant business.

Overall the restaurant had everything I like: crisp white table clothes, quaint rooms in an old house, good service and a decent menu, albeit a little classical. Unfortunately, the food while good just wasn’t anything to rave about. Execution by the chef was just lacking.

What a great setting for an intimate dinner with friends. We loved the European charm. The food was good, priced a little high, but justifiable for the ambiance. We would come back for the right occasion.

Chez Loma is a neighborhood gem. It's warm and friendly and the staff makes every dinner feel special. The bar area is lively and very inviting. The dining rooms have character and are quiet enough to enjoy a conversation. It's a great place to celebrate a special occasion. It has a very loyal following.

Chez Loma has -- and has had for decades -- a traditional continental or French menu. Chez Loma serves this cuisine very well, with a friendly staff, at a reasonable price - reasonable considering the menu and the location - in a large historic house in an picturesque neighborhood near Orange Avenue in Coronado. We enjoyed excellent foie gras and rack of lamb, fine coq au vin and creme brulee. Choosing wine and entree provide a challenge -- everything is good -- every possibility works. Service is friendly, not haughty, although I did note our waitperson effortlessly conversed with a French-speaking customer -- we were seated in a small room with several other tables -- not alone, but great for conversation.

We requested to sit with the view on street level, they sat us in the restaurant with a great view of street and open bar. Our waitress was new, very pleasant, food knowledgeable and took 4 patrons orders from appetizers, salad, first course and wine without writing it out. Impressive! Great service and our food was delicious! Try duck tacos, beef Bourgogne and seafood bouillabaisse!

We usually go to Chez Loma before seeing a play or musical at the Lambs Players Theatre. My husband likes the boeuf bourguignon and reported it was good as always. I usually have the duck but this time it was sauced with orange rather than the usual cherry sauce so I opted for bouillabaisse instead. The fish stew wasn't as good as I expected - had potatoes for some reason and a lot of them - I would have preferred more fish and less potatoes. Would probably not order this dish again. The bouillabaisse at Tartine Bistro is much better.

The Chez Loma visit is always a teat as was this last visit. We enjoy their wine menu choices and their rose wine. Eggs Benedict is a standby and always tasty. I hop that once when I order mussels they will be available, I don’t know if it is a supply or seasonal issue, but this place has the best ever mussels I’ve ever eaten, but recently they’ve been unavailable. Service is always polite and attentative. I ended up with the steak and frites which both were tasty and nicely prepared.

I dined at Chez Loma when visiting Coronado last year with my daughter who is a French teacher. We both loved it! This year a daughter-in-law arrived for a few days and I knew I would have to take her to Chez Loma also. We both had the rack of lamb, as was the choice last year. It was every bit as good as previously and my guest was delighted with our dining experience as well. It is a bit spendy, but certainly worth it for a special guest or occasion!

I've been dining here for several years and the chef is excellent and extremely consistent. All he needs to do is have a more varied menu, not the same thing ALL THE TIME!
Please get a little creative and add a few specials each week, we'd love to try them.
We'd also go to your restaurant more often if we knew that something fresh and new might be on the menu... but it's usually just the regular menu. By the Way, Your regular items are amazing and always excellent, don't get me wrong. I know I can always bring guests there and it will be superb, however, we like a little culinary adventure once in a while. Please, Chef, figure it out.

We enjoy the ambiance of Chez Loma especially on the porch. The bar tender Cheryl served us a fabulous tasting champagne cocktail of her own recipe. Eggs Benedict are always a staple tasting good and spicy hollandaise. The Mexican dish was bathed in delicious mole sauce and salad toppings. We enjoy the weekend brunches and occasionally the evening dinners, good value dining before 6:00 p.m.
