We are staying at the Hotel del Coronado. After being so disappointed with the dining options here, we found Primavera on Yelp, and had a fabulous dinner. Our waiter Jack was excellent and made our special night perfect. Highly recommended Primavera all around. If we lived in the area, this would definitely be a spot we would return to over and over.

Booked this restaurant for Valentines, prefixed three course menu and both selected capris salad and sea bass along with desert. Salad and desert were very good, sea bass was hard and tasteless, could barely eat it. At $75 each, way overpriced for the quality of the main dish. However, Mark, our waiter was excellent.

We had a lovely dinner at Primavera. Our server, Jack, was wonderful and attentive. We started with the grilled artichokes and followed with the lamb chops and the special halibut - everything was delicious and presented beautifully. Our cocktails were tasty and Jack brought out a complimentary tiramisu as a treat for our anniversary. It has been several years since we have visited here, but this reminded us that we love everything about the place, and we plan to return soon. Many thanks!

Top Notch Evening!!!
From the greeting we received when we arrived, the great table to the charismatic attentive service we received from Jack, everything was well above our expectations. We came in for a early dinner celebrating our 18th year anniversary and wanted to take our time. Jack provided attentive but unobtrusive service, he was knowledgeable about the menu and answered all our questions clearly and completely. I loved the Cioppino and order it often when I dine out and this was one of the best I ever had. The shellfish was not overcooked and the broth was very tasty also a great value for the portion you receive. Our Service Assistant had excellent timing clearing, marking the table and confirming if we would like more bread. The pace of the meal was perfect with the right amount of time between our three courses. The complementary anniversary dessert Tiramisu was delicious, excellent temperature and texture. What made the biggest impression on us was the pleasant Maitre d’ that took the time to touch our table and ask how we enjoyed our meals and welcome us back. We found his social graces and etiquette to be superb. This is a very well run restaurant with both excellent food and service. I have lived in San Diego for over 50 years I’m surprised I hadn’t dined here before. Definitely a gem I plan on returning to often.

Every dish we ordered was exceptional. The calamari was the best we have ever had. The spaghetti carbonara was in line with some of the best I have had in Italy. This was a great meal from start to finish.

Although we live in the north county coastal area, we have strong ties to Coronado and are there often.
We thought that the restaurant was a very pleasant place, with above average service and ambiance. We also thought that the food was just a little above average, and overpriced.
We are not newbies to the dining scene.

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.
