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.

Great food
Excellent service
Well served cocktails
Extensive wine list
***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.
I come here at least 3-4 times a year

We've been to Primavera a number of times and have enjoyed it immensely. We had a guest in town this week and decided he too should enjoy the experience. The service was excellent (Juan), attentive and patient with our visiting with our friend, also helpful with off-menu menu selections. The food was the best - delicious and freshly made. The only downside was the corkage charge of $30 but we knew this going in and decided to bring our own special bottle this visit.

Not only was the food delicious, our waiter, Omar, was second to none. Even though he had a huge party upstairs, he devoted all of the time we needed to make us feel extra special. Will be back and ask to sit in his section.

We were seated next to a large party and watched waitstaff go past us several times before we even got a menu. We were not offered information on specials (had to ask) and our waiter seemed confused about whether we could get champagne by the glass or not - he seemed to think prosecco and muscat qualified. However when we did get served things went smoothly. Appetizers were excellent - octopus for me and french onion soup for my wife. Then she chose a pasta dish and I had lamb both of which were very good. We've been coming here for years - it's still one of the best in town.
