This is a great restaurant. Surprising menu. Clam chowder was the best I have ever eaten!

Guests of mine ordered ribeye steak specials and raved about them. Vegetables that accompanied the steaks were unique and delicious.

Arrived on the west coast from NYC in a strom around 8PM on a Friday evening> despite having a reservation for 6, and when we arrivfed I was asked "are you John?" There was not a table for 6 set up. After much discussion with the hostess and the wait staff, we lere led to two adjoining booths for four. They actually wanted us to sit at two different tables. After much head scratching and staring they finally pushed two tables together and were were seated. Very dark, extremely low level of lighting made ti hard to read the menus. Food average, nothing special same for the service.

The staff were very polite and attentive; the view was amazing; the menu was creative without being pretentious; best of all the food was scrumptuous. Patio dining is a bit chilly this time of year, but outdoor heaters kept it cozy _ highly recommend.

Dinner was on the pier to watch the Christmas Parade of Boats. Rib Eye was great, but served lukewarm. Vegetables were tasteless. We did like the tamale, though.

Baja wine was forgettable.

Propane heaters were anemic....it was cold!

Serving staff was great!

Seafood Bar: Morro Bay Oysters, Poached white Mexican Prawns, Salmon Tartar, and Baja Style Ceviche. The Entrees provided favorites for everyone: At the Carving Stations: Turkey Breast, Gravy and Prime Rib, Jus. Then - Cedar Roasted Salmon, Baja Grouper, Orecchiette Pasta, and Italian sausage. Sides included: mashed potatoes, chorizo stuffing, glazed sweet potatoes, creamed kale, and cranberry sauce. The meal was topped off with a Harvest Dessert selection: pumpkin pie, cheesecake, pumpkin spice muffins, and ... The Wait Staff is award winning, exhibiting such attention to details that they made our holiday truly memorable. We were impressed with Marco, Likaa, Cathi, and Oscar.

We were here last year and had a great time. This year the service was terrible. It took two hours for dinner with just an appetizer and entree. Waiter never checked to see if one of our party wanted another glass of wine. Gave us the bill without a pen to write in the credit card signature , tip etc. Food came cold. It's sad as the venue is beautiful but it was like someone else took over the restaurant.

The happy hour was wonderful. Server was good but there weren't enough of them. I am a local who went to lunch at Peohes the day before. Their service was awful. Dingy hostesses who made all the people wait for tables on the patio. They weren't busy & many empty tables. Their food was terrible! The view was blocked by a white fence. You guys have them beat 100 times over for food & ambiance. They service just needs to step up and you have a gem.

Coronado Island Marriott Resort and Spa provides a perfect vacation setting. The Current Restaurant provides an expansive view of the sailboats and ships sailing through San Diego Bay.

For dinner, we selected the Whole-Grain Meal Bowls filled with Kamut Wheat, Red and Wild Rice, Suzie's Farm Vegetables, Black Beans and Avocado. For protein, we had a choice of Flat Iron Steak, Grilled Ono, Roasted Chicken Breast, or Crispy Hodo Soy Tofu. We chose the Roasted Chicken Breast, which made a tasty and nutritious meal.

The service was excellent with regular refilling of beverages.

After a busy day of travel, we decided on a favorite. We chose the Chef's Burger, which is made with delicious Angus Beef, topped with white cheddar, bacon-onion jam, arugula, and aioli on a large, freshly-baked pretzel bun. It was complimented by a generous portion of sweet potato fries.

The service was impeccable. Every member of the staff made us feel welcome. The view of San Diego Bay from the restaurant was spectacular making for a perfect evening.

The dining experience at Current is amazing! My wife, 2 kids, and I love making the drive across the bridge to Coronado for dinner, a stroll on the beach, fishing, AND a great meal in here.
We recently took the trip to enjoy Mother's Day breakfast on the beautiful San Diego bay, the ambiance and downtown view from the patio turns a casual breakfast into an experience for a queen. My kids love the variety of fresh and healthy options, my wife and I enjoyed the fresh omelets and waffles. Yum!
The service at Current is beyond outstanding. Wow, they are so friendly and are attentive to your every need. The general manager and manager were extremely nice, they stopped by several times to check on each table during a hectic breakfast rush. Thank you for making our Mother's day so special.
We will be coming back many more times this summer to enjoy the best of everything Current has to offer!

We were expecting a much better variety and quality for the p/p/p charged ($68 before taxes). It was an Ok Turkey, with and Ok Prime Rib, few OK salad choices, few Ok desserts... not worth it. I'm sorry. Did not like it will not recommend for Thanks Giving.

Current has a lovely patio with stellar views of San Diego. Comfortable chairs and well-spaced tables. The menu is small but very good. Our favorite is a meal bowl that has perfectly cooked grain, veggies, black beans and fresh avocado. You choose your protein, in our case seared Ono. This is our second visit and we will be back.

The menu was limited and did not match what is on the website. The food was mediocre. We were told they just changed the menu and did not have time to update the website. For a Marriott hotel that is classified as a category 8 hotel, the restaurant was very disappointing.

Kex is in a great location, except parking. Plan to get there 1/2 hour ahead of time so you can drive around searching for a space, otherwise the restaurant has valet. The décor of this restaurant very creative everywhere you look it is eclectic, upbeat, modern/rustic. Various areas and rooms to dine and drink. Outstanding patio on the top floor but be prepared-IT IS LOUD!
The food-AMAZING! Healthy dishes, well prepared, flavorful. I would like to see them expand it a bit. We asked the staff if they could tell us about the chef and no one knew name or background. Peeking into the kitchen it looks like a food laboratory...lots of white.
We ate at the bar, it was a great spot except the bar is so crowded with lamps and decorations, there is barely space for plates. Lamps hang over the bar top making it difficult if your tall glass of beer or wine are nearby to get it past the metal lamp shade. I can see a broken glass or a few in the future with this arrangement. Don't try to get a reservation, they are probably booked, but do walk-in, there are plenty of nooks and places to get a seat. High energy, fun crowd. Employees were welcoming, accommodating and professional.
I recommend this place if you don't have much to talk about with your dining partner...another loud restaurant comes to San Diego!
