Excellent service, food was very good, but the price is too high for the experience! I've been there, done that, do not need to do it again even though we enjoyed it greatly, one time was enough.
Amazing buffet. Once in a lifetime. Gotta do it. You will not be disapointed.
The Sunday Brunch is an event in and of itself. The service was excellent, the food was excellent (except I was really looking forward to key lime pie but I guess it wasn't on the menu that day). Is it worth the price tag? Perhaps just a little over priced but everyone should experience the Sunday Brunch at the Del at least once in their life.
What a lovely brunch!! Everything was Fabulous- including wait staff, cocktails, and of course the incredible menu!! Enjoyed it immensely!!
The desert bar is over the top. Lots of options from breakfast, meats, seafood and sushi.
The bloody Mary’s are not good tasting at all and the mimosa included are with cheep champagne. The 100 a person is a great value if you eat a lot or love sushi...
The Crown Room at The Hotel Del Coronado is open only for Sunday Brunch. The room is beautiful and historic. Brunch is extensive and expensive, $100 for adults, all inclusive, $36 for children, under 5 years are complimentary. Please save the day for a special occasion, you won't be disappointed.
Enjoyed our brunch and brought along our 3 year old. Our waiter (sorry cannot remember his name) was so kind and attentive. The food was amazing as usual. We hope to return again soon.
Wow! Everything was SO good!! Quite a variety of foods available and the dessert table was incredible!!!
Everything about it was great.
Make sure you come hungry.
the product here has fallen off drastically. food options were limited and it all tasted just a bit off. saw some weird moves by the omelette chef (like spraying cooking spray right into the food as it cooked) that made me question whether he was in any qualified.
service was terrible and the waiter tried to jovially convince us it wasn’t his fault but the rush and because so many people want to split checks etc.
at $100 a head I’d expect something of a fine dining experience and this was anything but. they left four table settings on our table the entire meal despite there only being two of us. they forgot our drink orders on multiple occasions. And they asked if we were celebrating anything (we were) and then didn’t do anything to mark the occasion.
The whole experience was just odd.
Go to Bali Hai. Half as much and twice the value.
Costó beneficio, bajo
Although they did have a big selection, certain items were not very good. The tamales, Ratatouille were horrible, the bloody Mary came out different every time, but all three were watered down. The waitress was very nice, but you could tell she was busy and it was hard to flag her down, but she did amazing every time she came by to see how things were going.
The sushi was surprisingly good. I would've liked to see a protein in the breakfast area that wasn't work. Waffles along with their add-ons were delicious.
I've been wanting to try the Brunch at the Del for years. It was worth the wait! Great food and good quality. Mark was a wonderful server! Friendly personality and very knowledgeable of the food.
We've been coming to the Del for many years. Many times, we've enjoyed the buffet brunch. This time was different. The service was fine and most attentive. The selection of food varied from seafood to sushi. Some of the food was simply disappointing: salads, visually unappealing; few choices of bread/rolls, had to search for butter which was located near the waffle machine; many of the tables with the food displays were in need of cleaning or repair with rough surfaces, sticky areas and in some cases duct tape; the general array of food needs to be arranged differently: it is possible to miss something if don't go into a corner or darkened area of the Crown Room where they have some of the items, e.g. bacon, sausage, etc.; eggs benedict were under poached and the server just slopped them on the plate over a not even toasted English muffin before placing a ham slice from a steam pan (so the ham was dripping water) on the muffin; not too many fresh fruits, mostly sliced melons and a few strawberries; no selection of baked goods such as sticky buns or danish pastry. Generally, I would say the whole buffet needs to be aesthetically and gastronomically updated. I would have felt differently if the food offered was presented in an appealing and updated manner. I knew what to expect so am not complaining about price. I do believe, however, that more effort could be put into planning and executing really good food even if this means fewer selections. For example, my wife committed that this is more like a breakfast buffet than a real brunch which would have featured an array of fresh salads tastefully arranged; more of a selection of cheeses; and the desserts where very ordinary, nothing special here.
One last thought, the music was not in keeping with the atmosphere of the occasion or the elegance of the room. It would not be a great effort to change to something more soothing and dignified than the current selection of loud and boisterous music.
Was not the same quality as 3 years ago. Hilton cut back on a lot of things. Just was not worth the 98 dollar a person price tag this time around.
Food was below expected on quality. No ocean views from any of the tables,
Totally worth it
Sunday Brunch is AMAZING! Sure, it’s a little pricey but the service and variety of foods on the breakfast buffet cannot be matched. Drinks are included and delicious. The ballroom is gorgeous. Delicious meats, seafood, breads, cheeses, salads, sides, desserts and our family favorite ... fondue! A MUST when visiting San Diego or Coronado Island. Be forewarned - you may need a nap after.
This is an expensive brunch, but it is worth every penny. The food variety is great and it is all very good except for the Wagyu brisket, which was pretty ordinary. Cindy, our waitress, could not have been any better. She was great. The only problem with this buffet brunch is where to put everything. It's all so good and one's stomach can only hold so much.
A lovely birthday brunch! Thank you, Gayle for serving us well!
Went on a Sunday (1pm)..tourists everywhere! Loud! people with barely walking todlers, hacking with runny noses, wandering in dining area, looking out windows.... Food mediocre, server too talkative and slow.
Been to many Sunday Brunches before....not worth the cost! $316 for three people!
Dark lobby...filled with visitors checking out, and tourists checking out property. Expensive parking (normaly $40+,,was reduced to $25 with parking validation! Absolutely never again!
It's been 30+ years since I was last here at the Crown Room, and it hasn't lost any of its charm. The menu is modern, well-prepared, abundant and delicious. Even if it's only a once in a lifetime experience, visit the Hotel Dell and have brunch in the Crown Room if you're given the opportunity. It will be a memorable experience.
Mark was our server and he was fabulous, my friend has allergies and he went the extra mile to speak with the chef so she could enjoy more foods than she ever thought she’d be able to enjoy 😉 it was wonderful, pricey but so much better than any other brunch I’ve ever done. This was my second time and I will return again.
Excellent buffet with an incredible spread and variety of food.
There best Sunday brunch, ever! Organic food, nothing but the best!
Hotel Del is my go-to when I want to impress my relatives and friends from the east coast. I've never been able to find an establishment like it anywhere and everyone always leaves mind-blown and happy. Over the years I've seen the price go up from approx. $30 to currently around $100.00 and I always still ready to pay. Simply outstanding.
Good food, excellent service, wonderful experience!
We went to brunch here a year ago and had an amazing experience. We just attended brunch here again in 2018, and were slightly unimpressed. There were less food options, a lower quality of food, and the overall feeling of eating like a king was not there anymore. A lot of the stuff we enjoyed and looked forward to last year was taken away from the menu this year
The variety and preparation of the offered foods was exceptional, and the service was excellent. We were there for a major birthday and the entire experience gave us unforgettable memories!
My only negative comment would be for the restroom availability. The only available restrooms are out in the hotel lobby and therefore used by ALL of the hotel and grounds visitors. Upon my first attempt, during our brunch, there were approximately 25 women in line, snaking out into the hallway; I was unwilling to wait in that long line. Later, I went to another lower lobby location and waited behind 8 women for 1 of 2 stalls.
Food was okay but okay is not what I would expect for $100.00 per person! Ambience and service was outstanding...
Food & experience good. A bit pricey. Parking has a fee & for price of brunch should be included. Would only be a special occasion place.
Brunch had excellent selections; fair service; needed to flag down waiters for coffee, etc. Lovely old hotel and dining room;parking a bit complicated but they validate and offer that right up front rather than hope you forget to ask
The service was very good, and the prime rib and sushi excellent. The crab legs were dry and tough. The bloody mary mix was aweful. It's a nice brunch overall, but no where near worth $100 per person.
Brunch at the Del did not disappoint! It was amazing. There were so many selections to choose from. Save room for dessert!
Loud dance type music being played during brunch. Strange.
I'm not sure why the price is so high. You must be paying for the ambiance, which is ruined by the fact that so many children are there.
Manuel was a very attentive server. Will be back...
Very expensive. The food was good, but not great. The service was terrible and all the waiter was doing was bringing drinks and the check, yet we had to ask and wait for both. Plates were also not cleared until we asked. Overall it was a mediocre experience and definitely not worth the exorbitant price.
I absolutely enjoyed!
We have been dining at the Crown Room in the Del since our honeymoon trip in 1974. Last year we enjoyed oysters on the half shell, and a variety of special-made beverages. When we returned this year, the oysters were gone, our waiter spent a great deal of time speaking with people at another table, and the experience was not as grand as it has been previously.
We will continue visiting the Del and the Crown Room for brunch when we visit San Diego. This year, it had lost a bit of its sparkle.
