The Sheerwater is a beautiful restaurant great for outdoor dining with oceanside views & excellent attentive staff. However, this fine dining restaurant served mediocre food. My husband & I shared the steamed mussel appetizer which was excellent & the only good thing about our meal. I ordered the broiled fish special & my husband ordered the NY strip medium/rare. Our food arrived cold & the steak was well done, tough and not edible. I decided to take my entree home & our server immediately removed the steak (which was not cooked to order) and my husband cancelled his order. The MOD returned with a new steak & insisted that we take it to go, we declined it so he said he would send over 2 complimentary desserts. When the bill arrived we were charged for the dessert as the server had no knowledge of the comped dessert.

I arrived early and they were able to seat me no issues. I had a lovely baked goat cheese appetizer. The bread with the baked goat cheese was really nice. The view was gorgeous. I watched all of sunset while sitting on the patio eating. I really enjoyed the briased short rib entree and the horseradish mashed potatoes were the show stealer. Waiters did great. Mine was a little absent at times. I noticed others were around more. But maybe he was busy in other spots too. Loved my dinner there.

The location at Hotel Coronado is lovely. We had reservations for dinner on Easter. It was not overly crowded given the holiday weekend. The appetizer was fantastic. But the meal went downhill thereafter. Our food arrived luke-warm. My husband's $54 steak (and even the kid's burgers) were over cooked despite ordering them medium. My $48 Ciopinno was salty and not even close to worth the price. I also found it annoying that the menu prices increased substantially b/t the time of booking the reservation and Easter Sunday -- only about a week. I presumed it was a "holiday" price we received. Overall very disappointing.

Armando was an excellent waiter! Branzino was delicious. Lobster bisque had broccoli in it I believe? It was ok. The goat cheese app was amazing and so was the crab cake, nice big chunks of crab and not too much breading.

Waited 15 minutes before waiter took our order.
Ordered sea food salad and salads were not prepared as we asked for. Had to ask him for the avocado and egg which were part of the salad.
Asked for check and he brought the full charge check - had to ask for the detailed slip because didn’t want to add tip to the full charge which included tax. Wanted to tip on the food without the tax charge
Ladies room at restaurant was dirty
Very disappointed in the service and waiter.

As a guest of the Del, we decided to have breakfast here. It was a standard buffet with the usual items with the option to have an omelette made on the side. Nothing special. Around $175 not including tip for four people. Complete captive audience ripoff!!!!!! Do yourself a favor and walk down Orange St to Clayton’s for much better food at a fraction of the cost. Arrive early.

My mom and I are staying in La Jolla on vacation and we decided to come down to Coronado Island and have dinner at Sheerwater. We split the filet mignon and creme brûlée which we're both fabulous!! The prices are very expensive but it's definitely worth it if you want to have a nice dinner one night. Our waiter, Reuben, was great; he was extremely attentive and gave us recommendations for his favorites on the menu. Even though it was a bit chilly at night, they have fire heaters outside so we were comfortable. I wish I could have tried everything on the menu because it all looked so good!!

I knew lunch would be expensive. $300 for 3! But to have to pay $25 for validated parking on a very slow day. In addition to our $300 lunch we bought a couple of gifts. I expected the validated parking charge be about $15. $25 for parking on top of our lunch & gift purchases is frankly outrageous. That may be the last time I take out-of-town guests to the Del.

Arrived on time. And we were seated. Then for the next 30 minutes no one came by to take our order at all. We had to go get the manager and ask for help. She took the order, them waited another 1o minutes for the food. Food was good and they did take off 2 orders off the bill. This is not what I would expect from this restaurant. Very disappointed.

Very over priced...appetizers at $28, really? If their prices "reflect" fine dining, than the food
should reflect this also. $50 braised short rib with (literally) a smear of potatoes. $18 for a
"glass + 1/2" of wine - served in the small, cheap, tasting size glass. A nice, regular sized dining wine glass would be appropriate. How about a table cloth? However, our server was pleasant and efficient. We understand the "upcharge" to dining in this beautiful & memorable location, but your customers deserve a little more class for the money.

VERY slow service - both food and bar. Servers had too many tables to properly serve. All dishes lacked flavor & seasoning.
Even the check took a VERY long time to come. We were told the restaurant had a new computer system, but servers did not know how to use it. When we finally got the check, it was for another table. We had asked for two checks for 4 people, but server forgot and had to re-do the check - another long wait.

While I have visited this restaurant before for brunch, there seemed to be less selection than before, yet the food was excellent as usual for brunch fare.

On this visit our waiter was frequently forgetful of requests. For instance, and this is only one such instance, hot tea was ordered and served, however, he did not bring a cup. He left before it became apparent to us, and it took a while before we were able to catch his eye to make the request. Maybe it was just a bad day for this waiter who, otherwise, was pleasant, couteous, and responsive when we had to remind him of some basic items.

The brunch was disappointing. It. It has obviously been downgraded. It’s overpriced for quality, therefore the value really isnt very favorable to customer. Service was poor. Coffee refills we’rent offered, and the check wasn’t available when we were ready to leave.
It really was a keen disappointment to have such a bland, mediocre experience at that price point.

My chicken breast was over cooked (dry) and the leg was undercooked (pink).
