One of our favorite places for many years. Nice to go to a place where guests still dress for dinner (business casual). Food is always amazing. A Coronado staple and one of the best restaurants in San Diego.

We where waiting for our waiter for 15 minutes as no one spoke to us after we where seated.
Finally when we were tossed back and forth with the wait staff we had a server that only half way committed to us as we had long waits again between courses.
New Year’s Eve 400 tab for 2 and having to beg for service left us on the notion never to go back or ever recommend.

We didn’t know it was going to be a fixed menu so we were disappointed with that as well as how over priced it was for what we got. Service was excellent.

We have never been disappointed with Primavera, and we go there to end every trip we have made to Coronado. Food is top notch. Service among the best we've experienced anywhere. Almost all of the dishes we've tried are up to international standards. (I have a hard time NOT ordering the Bolognese or the carbonara. But, I've vowed to "shop around.") Wouldn't be out of place in the best restaurants in Italy. We showed up over two hours before a reservation (schedule foul-up) and were seated before we realized what was happening. I know that's "good luck," too, but you get more good luck at great businesses more than usually. On our most recent trip, the braised artichokes were spectacular, 4-cheese risotto creamy-out-of-this world, and tortellini (vegetarian) just super.

This is one of San Diego’s best restaurants. Best service and a quite environment- I am getting tired of all the new places that are overrated and noisy. The food at Primavera’s is wonderfully tasty, nice subtle flavors.

We have been in the US for 35 years and in Coronado for 15. We are originally Brits so Thanksgiving was never very meaningful to us. However it was always an excuse to go out to a restaurant and enjoy the food so we have had 35 Thanksgiving dinners at restaurants. This was definitely the one with the best menu and best food. Excellent innovative food in a pleasant setting with excellent service. Please don't tell too many people!

We have been to this restaurant many times over the last several years and always loved the food! We just went for my wife’s 70 birthday....what a disappointment! Service was great the venue was great, the food was substandard. My wife’s Osso buco was tasteless! The pasta was way under cooked, we do like pasta aldente, this was like out of the box. I had Chicken Parm, the only thing I could taste was the oil and the breading!

They did bring a comp Tiramisu which was fantastic!

Wow what a disappointment for a special day!

Our mains were brought to us very shortly after the starters and whilst we were still eating the starters, which meant our entire meal was rushed, and we didn’t have time to order wine to go with the main course. Very unprofessional. There were several tables free, so no need to rush us.

We gave the feedback to the server as well as the restaurant manager when asked how the meal was - both just shrugged and no one cared. They just made an excuse that the food had to come out of the oven.

To bad, as the food was actually pretty good.

I would recommend the Primavera to a friend because the food is excellent but I would have to tell them that the noise level is so high that it becomes very difficult to carry on a conversation with a friend over dinner on a Saturday night.

Easy to see why this Coronado gem has been serving wonderful meals for 30 years! This was our first visit, and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and the ambiance. The server was great, and his suggestions were thoughtful. I had their signature Shrimp Scampi which did not disappoint. My wife had pennette meditteraneo which was divine. And the tiramisu desert was a perfect end to a memorable meal.

***only negative I have here (every time) is the noise level is super loud
I know this every time, however....everything else that I aforementioned is worth it.
