Menu availability is very good and the offerings we enjoyed (Steak and Halibut) were delicious. Service was extraordinary, provided by Cody. All in, a most pleasant evening experience.

The friendly and quick staff didn’t make up for the lackluster lobster bisque, store puff pastry, and excessively salted sauce on the tenderloin.

Overpriced wine list .
Notified them it was our 30th Wedding Anniversary When the reservation was made , also let the hostess know that as well as we checked in for dinner…
Figured they would have brought out a slice of something for desert ?
Nope just the bill for 400.00 for the dinner …
Wasn’t what i had hoped for …

Great use of seasonal veggies. Fish and steak were seasoned perfectly. Presentation was not too artsy and made the food look delicious.

We went for Christmas dinner and were somewhat disappointed. The menu was limited and food was cold when it was served. Not a huge deal, pretty view and good service, just a bit disappointing, especially at the price point. We had an amazing Christmas Eve dinner the night before at a local steak house, so the difference were glaring.

Three out of four of us had the catch of the day and we all agreed it was about the worst thing we ever ate, hands down. The "broth" was gelatinous, the "seafood tamale" was cardboard, and the fish was dry and unseasoned. It ruined fish for us for awhile. I can't believe we spent over $100 per person on this meal and it was absolutely awful.

We chose to dine at Sheerwater for Christmas Eve and it was exceptional as always. Attentive, friendly service and the food was outstanding. No doubt my lobster dish was the very best I’ve had out here on the West coast.

The food was not very good and the service felt like we were constantly being upsold and felt like we were rushed to be finished and leave. It was not the Christmas Eve experience our family was hoping for. We have been there before and it was better. We were all disappointed.

Cocktails expensive, not much alcohol
Ordered a sirloin strip. Toughest steak I’ve ever had. The server suggested the prime rib as a replacement. I agreed. Then found out when the bill came it was 80.00 for a slice of prime rib!!!! That wasn’t that great either.
We won’t be back

I had a reservation and was just to three other diners. It is an expensive restaurant and food and service were fine. Our greatest difficulty was that upon arriving there were no parking spaces available in self park and no sins get to tell you that lots were all full. I had originally wanted valet parking, but arriving I. Front of the hotel we were tild that no valet parking was available except for hotel residential guests and that we would have to find street parking, along with the hoard of people already at and trying to get to the hotel for ice skating. Dining and tourists. I have had good evoeriences in past years, but I would never again try to host any event at the Hotel Drl Coronado -sadly.

Couldn't have been better! The service, the food & the atmosphere all were amazing. We had octopus starter, beef tenderloin, lamb & the cobbler for dessert. If you're not familiar with the parking situation, come early to figure it out. There's a nice size underground structure ($20) & little walk to get to the restaurant, so give yourself plenty of time. And it's super fun to walk around the hotel & check it out after dinner, especially during Christmas time.

Gorgeous atmosphere. Service from Cody was excellent. Personable and right there if you need something.
Food was very good although a little overpriced. The dishes were unusual and I don’t think they complimented the food. Beautiful evening!

Fabulous dinner on the patio under the heaters. Food was delicious. Seared tuna was amazing. My husband devoured the lamb chops. We also started with the warm bacon tart that was savory and a great way to start your dinner.
The staff was amazing. Manni took great care of us. We will definitely be back.

Menu was really terrible. Chicken was pretty good but Chinese Long Beans are just green beans in a bland marinara sauce for $25! They need more items that are relevant to more people. I would accept WAY more for this price point!! Very disappointed in this dining option for such an amazing hotel.

Have you ever been served your appetizer after your entree? My husband and I ordered the soup of the day to share. Soup was very good. My salad was brought to the small table before we were finished with the soup, so I set it aside waiting for my husbands appetizer to arrive. While the soup bowl was still on the table, our entree's arrived. We told the assistant to the waiter that we hadn't had our appetizers/salad yet. The waiter came and apologized. We ate our entrees and then I had my salad, and my husband his appetizer. The waiter comped our shared dessert and my husbands appetizer. It wasn't the end of the world, but it was a very weird experience. Our reservation was one and a half hours prior to their last reservation, and there were other empty tables, so they weren't trying to rush us out, just got confused. However the waiter should have been on top of this and paying attention. Some of the food was very good, some average. Setting is beautiful.
