About

Our new San Diego home is located in the Carez Hizar House (circa 1889), a Coronado historical landmark on Loma Avenue almost at the corner of Orange Avenue. We are within walking distance to beautiful downtown Coronado, the Hotel Del Coronado, and the beach. A French inspired bistro where people feel comfortable and enjoy fresh rustic fare at reasonable prices. Sourcing locally to achieve maximum freshness and offering our customers what they want instead of following culinary trends.
If your desire is a casual tapa at the bar or a dinner with friends or colleges, Chez Loma under new management, offers an inviting space to relax, enjoy and socialize.

The place is attractive and lively, and the service good. The server told us that we could have happy hour wine prices at a dining table, which was very nice. But the food was overpriced--by about $10 per entree, and about 50% for salads and appetizers. Our point of comparison is Le Diplomate, the flagship French restaurant in Washington DC, which is not much more expensive but has much better food, and more of it. Our country pate was good, although the bread was very hard, with a tiny portion of butter. But the steak frites seemed to consist of hacked-off bits of beef from different cuts of meat. Some bits were tough, while others were so tough that they could not be cut, let alone eaten. We ate here many years ago and it was much, much better. We will not be going back

Made use of a $100 gift card. Food was excellent. Plating was bistro style, nothing special. Service was also excellent. Our table was located in a high traffic area and this after choosing a 3rd table alternative.

When we stay overnight in Coronado Chez Loma is our first choice for a romantic dinner. We have never been disappointed in our dining experience here. The rack of lamb was perfect, onion soup and escargot good start and our server, Sabrina helped us with the wine selection that was excellent. We are from the central coast and there is a High Valley Eruption Red Blend at a good price. The special chocolate dessert was the perfect ending.

This restaurant is outstanding. The appetizer was excellent, but it was the main course we had, Duck a l'Orange, that was truly remarkable. The restaurant is in a converted house , with small serving rooms, as well as a bar where one can eat. We found the atmosphere to be perfect and everything to be wonderful.

We visit Chez Loma every time we visit Coronado. The food was excellent and our service from Sabrina, always top notch. We started with a tasty French Onion soup, followed by steak and frittes. It did not disappoint! I am already looking forward to our next visit.

Been going to Chez Loma for 35 years - it's been 10 years since the last visit. Menu still features well-executed French bistro food in a charming, white tablecloth environment. Best value for fine dining in Coronado. Excellent service this last visit (for me, if service fails, it is in being ignored after the check is dropped off -a very prompt disposition of the check this time). The caramelized diver scallops and boeuf bourguignon made with short ribs were excellent; the duck breast (ordered medium) was served rare - the one off-note of the evening. The French fries with the steak frites were fresh and crispy.

My husband & I loved this restaurant. Sabrina was so nice and provided such great service. I had the filet mignon that was delicious and so was the shrimp cocktail. My husband said the rack of lamb was the best meal he has ever had in his life. Loved this cute, charming, quiet place. This is what dining is all about. Thank you for a special birthday dinner.
