Absolutely suberb in every way! Magnificent setting; complete with beautiufl sunset. Food was perfect. Simply a lovely dining experience.
Great food. Great 3 course deal.
Although the location of 1500 Ocean is beautiful the food and cocktails were poor. The prices were waaaay over priced for what we received. My husband and I have been all over the country and have dined at some of the most expensive restaurants and they have all lived up to the expectation. 1500 Ocean did not in our opinion. The portions were minuscule and the prices large. Had the flavors been “out of this world” then we could have accepted the high prices. However, the food was simply just so-so. Weird! We thought we’d have a true dining experience but it was a major fail. We each had 2 cocktails that were also just okay. It’s a shame! Staying at the Hotel Del Coronado and dining at their famous restaurant goes down as one of our least favorite weekend getaways. Good luck!
Wonderful food, superb service, and a great location!! We really enjoyed the mix of flavors and textures in each of our meals - the grilled octopus was a particular standout. Even though the evening was cool, there was enough warming torches to keep things comfortable on the outside patio, and dining with the sounds of the pacific in the background was spectacular. While expensive, the meal and experience was definitely worth it.
1500 Ocean is perhaps San Diego’s only Michelin star quality restaurant. The food, wine, service, and surroundings were all noteworthy. We enjoyed the five course tasting menu and found every selection to be well prepared and beautifully presented. The beet salad (including wonderful beet ice cream), the octopus, and lamb courses were particularly well conceived and executed. The wine list featured a large selection of familiar wines at very reasonable prices. Services was good, though perhaps not quite as personable and interactive as might be expected for a restaurant of this quality. 1500 Ocean is definitely worthy of a return visit.
Waiter was top notch with wine pairings and in friendly conversation with my wife and I.
The worst Valentine day in 50 years. 125.00 per person priced fixed. Really bad selections. During dinner 33 Navy Helicopters flew over head. The worst. And I mean worst 550.00 wine food and tip ever spent . Seriously, Lobster carpacio with chunks bigger than a soup spoon? Great bottle of wine though. Other than that. Run, run Forest run.
Had a great time. Best beet salad and rack of lamb I’v ever had!
Very expensive with mediocre food I took guests to celebrate two birthdays. They gave us a delicious cream brullet with a candle for each bday guest.
Great tasting menu deal
Everything was wonderful, the service, the ambiance and the food.
We arrived fifteen minutes before our reservation time, and the place was deserted. A janitor said come back at 5:30( our reservation time). Waiter was Leo. Described the pricing of the restaurant week procedure vs. the full menu, but didn’t describe any of the dishes. Portions were micro-small. Taste was fair. Value was poor.
We celebrated our anniversary in this beautiful place.
The service is great and the food is really good.
The food for restaurants week was just ok.
For $50 per person during Restaurant week, we got lobster flavored boullion, a few short ribs and a little cream brûlée. We left hungry. When I used the restroom I noticed the other tables had bread but not us. We spent $140 to leave hungry.
Birthday. Dinner excellent
First and second courses were not very good... shrimp was whole and flavorless. Sea bass was average at best. Very very very over priced! Service was impeccable and atmosphere wonderful! Chocolate dessert was divine.
A true culinary dining experience. The dishes are intricate, complex and sublime. Taste, texture and the visual is exciting and did not fail this educated palate. And the service was extraordinary. Mark took care of us with great expertise. Made this birthday a lovely experience.
Amazing meal! We went for our wedding anniversary and the meal in superb and the service was excellent. Mark was our waiter and he knew everything about the menu, superb service. I highly recommend it for a special occasion.
