It would have been tasty if if were really warm. My husband ordered his burger md - rare and it was very rare. He sent it back and the Server was accommodating. I rated a poor value because all of the restaurants in downtown Coronado are over priced. We have accepted that burgers along the coast are often $17. But $22!! The atmosphere was nice and clean. An acquaintance said the short ribs were very tasty. Since two of us were not impressed with our meals, I probably would not return. This is probably the first time my OpenTable review stated that I would NOT recommend this establishment .

The latter can be a little on the saltier side but the texture of the brioche and the flavor of the hollandaise sauce is perfect. Quiche is rich and packed with layers of spinach and bacon. Highly recommend trying either the cronut or cruffin - we got both which were great but they were pretty similar. The yogurt cherry filling of the cruffin was delish and the flakiness of the cronut was better than the cruffin.

We both ordered medium rare and received tough, well-done steaks that were difficult to cut. Considering these were supposedly Snake River Wagyu, it was a culinary tragedy. The fries that came with the steak frites weren't anything to write home about.

As always, the food and service were excellent. We always ask for an outside table so the bit of street noise is to be expected, especially on a Sunday night. I would advise diners to try to book outdoor tables after six in order to avoid the loud live music from across the street that is played during their happy hour on Sunday night! after that it's lovely!

Unfortunately, the service was not good at all. We were seated immediately, but no one came to our table for 25 minutes. That was to bring water. 10 minutes later, our server arrived. Once order was placed, the food arrived quickly. That was good. The food was good. Server did not return for quite a while. This is my 3rd time at this restaurant, and I have never had this type of service before (very slow).

We ordered the French onion soup, the cheese tray, escargot, and scallops, splitting everything. The waiter and kitchen coursed out our meal and the service was wonderful. We ended the meal with crème brûlée and left very full and satisfied. Not to mention the wine recommended by our server was perfect as well. Not too crowded or too loud but definitely not quiet. The outside table afforded us interesting people watching and observing people’s parallel parking skills.
