Chez Loma is a little jewel of a restaurant! Everything is absolutely amazing; the salads, the ceviche, the entrees & for dessert: the pavlova!

Not a good experience at all. The server was very inexperienced, she wasn't able to talk about the food with any knowledge at all. I ordered escargot , which the menu stated came with sweetbreads. Whelm the dish came I noticed that there wasn't any sweetbreads in the dish. The server had no idea what sweetbreads are and looked confused when I stated that there where none in the dish. I asked her to speak with the chef, which she did and reported that "the chef said we are out of sweetbreads". No apology or offer of substitution or compensation. My beef bourguignon was tasteless and appetizer sized. The room very cold, music to loud.
Don't go to this restaurant it is very disappointing and not worth the money. We spent $100 for 2 entrees and 1 appetizer and 1 glass of wine, totally not worth it !

Dining at Chez Loma is a treat. If you’re an onion soup fan, it’s a must order. Their mussels are also scrumptious and little bread rolls addicting. Poached salmon was delicately flavored and served on a unique blend of tasty vegetables. Dessert poached pears are also excellent unless you’re getting the gingerbread Carmel sauce cake, yum. We enjoyed their courteous and friendly wait staff .

My server was inexperienced and did not ask if I wanted a second glass of wine. The bus boy did not fill my water. We were celebrating our anniversary. I don't eat meat and asked that bacon be left off the dish. She brought my meal with bacon. The food was good once it was right but we were completely ignored. The waitress knew she messed up but made not attempt to make us feel better. I was very disappointed.

The food and cocktail were well executed. Kudos to chefs and bartenders. The wines by the glass were exceptional and superbly recommended by our service staff. The dining area had the classiness we recalled from years back.

Dinner for four, asked for a quiet table, had to ask twice for music to be turned down. Food was OK but not great. Ran out of fois gras which two of our table had ordered, when the waitress who seemed overwhelmed returned she only brought one menu to re-select from. I had the filet for a main, undercooked and cold when I got it. Two had the seabass which they liked. Gingerbread was dry and looked like a large brick. Mehhh.

Food was good, but quite pricey. Server was attentive. A little disappointed that I indicated on the reservation it was a milestone birthday celebration, and there was no acknowledgement by the hostesses or wait staff. A restaurant at this price point should do better than that.

Food was very good, reasonable prices. Service was a little slow. We were asked if we wanted more water when our glasses were empty, then didn't get water until we asked later. Only one waitress for the upper floor.

I love Chez Loma. An icon in Coronado, it has maintained its authentic French cuisine quality, it has friendly wait-staff and servers, its atmosphere is superior with the right balance of quiet energy. Very European without being stuffy. We stumbled onto Wine Wednesday and their Happy Hour keeps the prices manageable, but we keep this as our special occasion dinner destination.

The food was excellent and service was wonderful. The restaurant is in a historical house. It may be noisy or quiet depending upon where you are seated. My wife’s salmon was cooked to perfection. You couldn’t tell from looking at the menu, but they do accommodate vegetarians/vegans. They chef will prepare a locally grown organic roasted vegetable dish. It is wonderful. I don’t know why they don’t add it to the menu.

Was seated for a reservation. Waited over 10 minutes and nobody came to even greet or say that someone would be with us. Promptly left 11 minutes after being seated. It was also interesting to note that a lot of supposed regulars (mostly older Caucasians) were seated in back but the ones seated in the section near door (mostly Asians and black). Another table near us complained about how they never filled their water or came back to check up on them. Sad experience because I heard such good things and had listed this place many months in advance and didn't even get a chance to order food.

We discovered this wonderful little restaurant on a trip to San Diego 3 years ago; it hasn't lost a thing with time. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was authentic French cooking and excellent, and the price was relatively modest. I recommend it highly.

Chez loma is the finest restaurant in the city of Coronado and it is a far superior value to its nearest contender at the Del.

Lovely French restaurant with French ambiance. Service is impeccable. Our waiter helped guide our choices in wine and food. Food was hot and nicely served. A real gem in Coranado and close to the Lamb's Players theater.

We decided to try Chez Loma for French Food. I had the 3- beet salad and, Coq au Vin which were truly authentic and delicious! The small restaurant is charming and we both thoroughly the entire evening! The soft French background music made for a perfect evening! This place is a winner!

Arrived at 6:40 for a 6:45 reservation but was not seated until 7:20! I saw several other tables being seated that came in after me while we waited in the bar. One couple told me that their reservation was after ours but they were seated 30 minutes before us. The manager/waiter said she was sorry in the most un-empathetic way. Also odd, the bartender told me that she couldn't transfer my drinks to the dinner bill and I needed to give her cash. If you want to try French wines, like burgundy, you need to get a bottle as most of the wines by the glass are not French. The worst thing about this place is their attitude.
