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.

quaint atmosphere but the wait is questionable for the hit/miss service and tight seating arrangements, just for a brunch or nice outdoor lunch. Would not rate this as a top 10 must refer friends or out of town family and guests to. Of course not unless its a narcissistic colleague into selfies and social media.

The venue itself is incredibly tiny and it felt as though we were elbowing our neighbors throughout dinner. The steak and fries were lovely, however, the red wine pears were terribly bitter.

We have actually been eating at Chez Loma for the past 40 years. It is our anniversary spot. We arrived on Sunday, Feb 24 for a 6 pm reservation. Granted it was Oscar night so the place was not very busy. By 8 pm we were the only ones there. By 8:20 the wait staff dimmed the lights in a not so subtle way to tell us to move on. We did. But really. We would expect a bit more class from this special place.

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.
