Chez Loma is a marvelous date restaurant. It’s in a cozy home just off the main drag on Coronado Island. What’s not to love? Chez Loma is a casual, quiet, romantic little gem with great food. And it’s always a treat when Sabrina is there — trust her recommendations!
We have lived in San Diego for almost 2 years, and this is in the top 3 of all meals we have eaten out. Great atmosphere, outstanding food, attentive service without being intrusive. Waiter Sabrina was very good.
Excellent. ! Food - Service - wonderful.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Chez Loma and couldn't have chosen a better spot in our home town. This was our first, but won't be our last, dinner there. The second story table seating could be a bit too cozy with seats in a line against the couch seating on one side, so the person next to you could be very close...this night (Saturday) no one was seated at the two areas close to us, so it was great. There were other circular tables with couples dining that created a nice atmosphere but also some privacy. We will request a table next time.
The food was delicious and very well priced for the quality. My duck l'orange was the best I've had, and it is my go-to special occasion dish; tender slices cooked to perfection in delicious sauce; potatoes au gratin were very tasty and the green beans were sauteed with garlic and very fresh. My husband ordered the short ribs and said they were very good, served in a casserole-type plate with veggies and a rich sauce. We had 2 glasses of wine each (happy hour still in effect, so it was a nice $3 per glass discount; we inquired beforehand about corkage - $20, so we passed on that).
Our waitress was excellent, attentive, friendly and efficient (red hair, don't remember her name). She was assisted by an equally efficient, pleasant young woman. The bread was warm and wonderful and the food came at a good pace, not rushed, but not too long either. All in all, a fantastic experience and perfect celebration (complete with creme brulee, yum)!
Sabrina was an outstanding server. We asked her to pick out wines that would go with our dinners. Her choices were spot on. I The atmosphere was very French. The food was very tasty, especially the mushroom sauce accompanying the perfectly done steak.
Excellent little French Bistro with the classics. Crab cakes were outanding. Ambiance is warm with a little bar area. Server was efficient but could have smiled....
Delicious Chilean sea bass! However, the side dish did not go with such a delicious fish. It was a puréed cauliflower with pepper and did not complement the fish flavor.
Very nice French rolls, good service. Very pleasant atmosphere.
A wonderful restaurant for a date. The service was excellent and the food was, too. The server was very accommodating. When we first arrived the heat was on high and it was so warm, but she immediately took care of adjusting it when we mentioned the temp to her. Our appetizers were good - beet salad was nice and fresh, crab cakes were good. Our meals were excellent. The beef bourgeon was yummy and my husband finished all his meal, too. The setting is like a house and it was nice to be seated in a room with not too many other people. There were about 6 tables in our room (and looked like a bit fewer in the next room) so it feels cozy, but not too close to your neighbor. Recommended for a special evening.
Classic French at it's Best!! Awesome. So good, we went back the next night!! The service was amazing (Sabrina). It could not have been any better! We started with the escargot, outstanding, and moved to Bouillabaisse and Boeuf Bourguignon as main courses - then finished with the Gingerbread. If you make it to Coronado - you must go here!! You absolutely feel like you're in a Swiss/French chalet and enjoying the food and atmosphere!
Excellent authentic French food. The whole thing was amazing!! Highly recommend this little gem on Coronado Island.
Oh, and our waitress was the best!!!
