The menu was very basic. They had very few healthy options oatmeal and fruit no omelets. I ordered a dish that had tator tots with poached eggs the menu said it had an aoli on it and it came out smothered with ketchup. Very dissatisfied with our meals!

Nothing beats the view. The restaurant has an amazing view of the Coronado ocean. The food was great. Our server was so nice and caring. Just keep an eye for the bottomless mimosas, if you're having 2 or more go for the bottomless.

We had a nice breakfast. The Sheerwater has been our "go-to" spot for breakfast on special occasions for many years. The ambiance is hard to beat, with a nice view of the ocean and a quiet spot though many people are milling about.
The food was tasty, though I was disappointed that the menu was more limited than usual. Typically, they have offered a "made to order" omelet, which I was looking forward to. But they said the menu was limited during the COVID Shutdown.
All in all, we had a very nice morning! The service was excellent, which is what we've come to enjoy!

Great view! Had breakfast here and enjoyed the scenery. Not a large selection on the menu but everyone in our party found something they liked. Would recommend booking ahead if you are staying at the hotel

The food is great at Sheerwater but the view is unbeatable and the service is always attentive and very professional! Every time I have guests in town, I make it a point to take them here for breakfast.

Throw was our 25th Anniversary day after breakfast (1st day of the next 25 years). We chose to eat here as we have before and really liked it. This time did not get 5 stars because our server forgot that he had not served us our food yet (even though we had not even opened our silverware and napkin yet). The hot water for my wife had spilled on the table, so we asked for some napkins to clean it up - our server brought the napkins to another table that had not asked for them, then walked right by our table, looked at the water on the table, and kept right on walking. When our food was served, we were asked if we needed anything else, we asked for some salt and pepper, which never came. I guess we expect more from such a nice hotel & restaurant. Still the food was OK, and the atmosphere was great. The hostess did go out of their way to seat us promptly and with a great view (as promised).
Hope this is helpful to make things better your guests.

Disappointed. We had a reservation and was stuck in the back and only view was a fence which blocked the construction. Both tables wobbled and server made a big deal about putting a wedge under one table. The menu was limited and overpriced. The crab cake was delicious and was enjoyed by two in our party.

Mago was a great server (hope I got his name right.) The food was amazing! Sitting outside with the heaters and the sunset, icing on the evening. The drinks were perfect. Had the Fort Tender Short Ribs and they were so tender, juicy and the vegetables were so tasty! A few appetizers shared at the table and we were all so delighted.

I have eaten there before and the Sheerwater is beautiful, the service is great, and the view....Stunning! The food this time was cold. The buffet had quite a number of dishes that were not warm at all, and the plates were ice cold. I love the place, but that was probably my last time there.

The Hotel Del is in the process of major renovations, so be warned that during the day, there will be a lot of construction noise! That had no impact on this review.
Service was so so. We were not offered any refills on our iced tea or sodas. Our server did the bare minimum. Food was ok. I ordered a salad that was swimming in salad dressing. In hind sight, I should have sent it back. Prices are very high ($70 + tip for two small lunches and no alcohol), so I expect better. Not going back.

The food was terrible. Chicken sandwich was not good, the chicken was hard, over cooked, bacon was chewy and bread hard. The crust on the quiche was not good. I couldn’t cut with a knife, flavor was nothing special.

The crab cake was delicious and beautifully plated. The acorn squash with Israeli couscous
Was too spicy; we exchanged it for the blue cheese mac and cheese—pure gold.

Hotel under construction so views were limited and restrooms were outdoor fancy port-a-potties that were disgusting. Food very good, but overpriced drinks food plus construction made this a so so experience. I’m sure when construction ends it will be better. Highly recommend the blue cheese Mac and cheese - memorable! Mussels and fresh fish were okay but nothing out of the norm.
