Serẽa is proud to bring an exquisite sea-to-table dining experience to San Diego in a comfortable yet sophisticated setting. Located just steps from the beach in the legendary Hotel del Coronado, the restaurant’s key focus is the bounty of the sea. The menu focuses on sustainable seafood, with a coastal cuisine menu that spotlights the best of the region’s oceans, farms and fields, ranging from the California Coast down to the Baja Peninsula. Creative cuisine with a global flair is prepared by San Diego’s own Chef Jojo Ruiz, who creates elegant, fresh dishes with just a hint of Mediterranean flair.

    Our waiter did not seem to think we were as important as the rest of his tables. He made us feel very awkward. It took over 15 min outed for us just to receive menus from him. Not sure we will revisit. The restaurant was beautiful though.

    We’ve been coming to The Del since our children were just over 2 years old with our 3-generation family. After 24 years of visiting The Del, this was the first time it was our immediate family of 6, with our now adult children and their significant others - dining at Serea. We were excited! Though the ambiance is really beautiful, unfortunately, all else was a disappointment. The service was mediocre at best. Our waiter was slow and moderately unprofessional. No smiles, no circling back around to check in, and part of our order was wrong. Our food was not up to par. We ordered an array of appetizers and entrees. 80% of everything was either dry, lacking taste, or simply not very good. Sadly, not a great evening.

    I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and was really excited about it! Overall, it was a beautiful spot, but there were a few things I didn’t like. For one, we definitely felt a bit out of place in that we didn’t meet our server until 20 minutes after we sat down (but everyone around us seemed to be chatting it up with their server/being serviced just fine.) When our server did arrive, he was nice, but there was just something off about our interactions with him. He had long, extravagant, laughter-filled conversations with all his other’sguests/tables but not ever with us. It was always short and to be honest kinda passive-aggressive. And if you’re wondering, yes we are people of color. Idk we’ll probably come back here for the bar because it’s truly at a beautiful location but we didn’t feel good about our interactions with the server. Anyway, the food was delicious, and reasonably priced as well.

    Overrated and expansive, having eaten all over the US and Europe, I’d suggest the restaurant is capitalised on the clearly failing Coronado formula….👌

    A great dining experience with beautiful views of the ocean; food is delicious and service is very good. Given this is right next to the beach and in Hotel Del Coronado its a relaxed setting, no need to overdress. Pricing is on the high side, calculate about $100/person if ordering wine.

    My husband and I chose Serea to celebrate my milestone birthday and we were more than pleased with the outstanding seafood (fresh oysters and shared a whole snapper per the recommendation of our server John O.). John was extremely professional and courteous. He was knowledgeable about the food and the drinks, friendly, and he made us feel very welcome. We are looking forward to returning again to enjoy another fresh seafood meal at Serea.

    We arrived 15 min early and were told off by the hostess who instructed us to come back on time, although there were plenty of tables available in the restaurant. She did not even offer to go the bar while waiting. The service was not attentive, we had to request for them to clean the table before being seated as the table was dirty. We waited very long for our main dishes, which came cold. The waitress did not inform us that there was no vegetable with the fish and that we were supposed to order the sides. The price of the fish dishes was i n the $45 +, without any side! The bill was very high for an average meal. Not a good experience.
