    European charm with excellent service and great food. Centrally located on Coronado, it provides a nice break from the crowds (and prices) of the Del.

    It’s a great place to dine. Especially if you stay at the hotel. The service is always good. It was a little chilly dining in the evening and we asked to turn on the outdoor heaters. They were out of gas😒

    Salad looked a little wilted. I had the beef stroganoff special. Waiter didn’t say prices and I didn’t ask. But I assumed when all dishes were $18-30 it would have been in that range. Got the bill and it was a $40 plate. I was good but I would have rather had my wife’s $30 steak.

    We had an early dinner at Crown Bistro on a Saturday night, having made a reservation for 5 pm. We were promptly seated in the covered patio. The staff were very attentive, and brought us water with lemon wedges on a plate as well as warm bread and butter. We were then greeted b our waiter who listed all of the daily specials, which were many. My husband and I ordered the lamb shank which was served with potatoes and vegetables. As a sail special, we also hav a choice of sauce or salad. I ordered the Caesar salad which was excellent, and my husband ordered the house salad with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing. The couple who were with us ordered the rack of lamb and a chicken dish, prepared with mushrooms and artichokes. Both dishes were given high marks by our friends. We enjoyed our meal and plan to go back to try additional menu items.

    Waitor was clearly experienced and excellent at his trade. Food was average. The hostess may want to up her outfit to compliment the ambience. It seemed her and the waiter worked at two different restaurants. Overall a nice front patio feel.

    My family went for dinner last weekend. The restaurant wasn’t too busy when we arrived but service was somewhat slow. Salads were ok. Entrees were all disappointing except the pork chop. My parents didn’t eat much of their chicken and fish. Honestly not worth the $ for dinner but may try for breakfast sometime.

    We live around the corner. I’m glad you’re on Open Table. We won’t book if it’s rainy, promise. We like coming here. We’ve been customers for decades. Sorry about your recent loss. The Osso Boco lamb shank was amazing. Vegetables were over cooked. Needs to be a bit fresher. They were to mushy to eat. But the service was great. We love that Theresa is still there 💓. We will be back 🌸✌️

    A local gem. I had a trout and my wife had a rack of lamb. Both are amazingly delicious. The staff were courteous and attentive and the place has a good vibe. The whole experience were unforgettable. Will be again soon.

    Everything was excellent. The only improvement I would suggest was the Malbec I selected wasn’t a very good Malbec. Otherwise food and service was excellent

    Charming atmosphere and excellent service. Very nice change from the crowded restaurants of Coronado..only drawback was the very salty veal dish and my wife’s salty fish dish. Chef needs to limit the amount of salt! Otherwise, an enjoyable dinner. And the lemon cake dessert was outstanding!

    We met friends there and it was a lovely evening. I had halibut with Putanesca sauce.. delicious! The potatoes were mashed from scratch.. and asparagus came with it along with soup or salad. It has a relaxed atmosphere and it’s very charming and quaint. We come regularly.
