Seafood
A San Diego tradition since 1969, the Brigantine has received numerous accolades during our 40+ year history: "BEST SEAFOOD", "BEST CASUAL SEAFOOD", "BEST HAPPY HOUR", and even "BEST SWORDFISH IN THE WORLD", according to USA Today - just to name a few.

Well-known for our signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish & Crème Brûlée, the Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks & grilled meats.

A favorite destination for locals & tourists alike, the Coronado Brigantine is located in the heart of the village, immediately adjacent to the historic Hotel Del Coronado.

Completely remodeled in 2016, the "new" Coronado Brigantine is an elegant adaptation of its former self. The addition of an intimate private dining room, a surround-seating bar and street-side outdoor patio have been equally well-received.

The Coronado Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, as well as lunch Monday-Saturday.

    Host team was hardly welcoming, blew it off thinking it was just my interpretation of the interaction but while waiting for our table we witnessed multiple other guests come up and the service was much less than hospitable to every single party. Went to the restroom and two servers were just hanging out, purses on the counter blocking the sink like they were getting ready for their shift - very unprofessional and not great in a small restroom area. Our server that was handling the patio section thy evening made up for the beginning experiences. I cannot remember his name but he was the most professional and warm out of the whole bunch. He dealt with one of the guests in our party, who was a little more difficult, like a pro. Overall food was basic and lacked salt to a laughable level. Would give less stars but again our server was carrying the whole place on his back and the rest of the staff should take notes.

    We made reservations a week ago to meet our new future in-laws visiting from out of town hoping to impress after so many great experiences at the Brig in Del Mar. (Which is consistently outstanding at all levels!) We got there early to make sure we had a nice table. The hostess staff was too busy talking to be bothered and make us feel welcome, instead we felt like we were putting them out by being there. They proceeded to put 6 of us at a four top with two chairs on the end that they had to bring after we were seated while we stood around waiting awkwardly. The table was by the kitchen and bathroom entrance and we were at noon and the place was wide open. It was quite disappointing. Our server was fantastic though. If not for her, I wouldn’t come back. I will definitely consider before coming back or making a recommendation.

    Good swordfish & oysters on the half-shell. Risotto was not good and looked to be just plopped on the plate with an oversized ice cream scoop.

    The Brigantine was a great start to a wonderful evening. The food is great and reasonably priced. I recommend the Grits and Shrimp! Also, the Brig Salad is a great starter (we split it). The wait staff is knowledgable, friendly, and efficient . Our waitress, Marianna, was terrific.

    Our Wedding Anniversary dinner celebration…very disappointed. We were seated at a table that had flies flying around…disgusting and annoying having to kill one just so we could stand sitting there. My food was good except for the crunchy/raw vegetables. My Husbands fish had no flavor at all. He said it tasted like it was taken out of the freezer. Our waitress was nice. The two hostesses were not cordial at all.

    We were celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday, as the Brigantine is my go to for special occasions… Our waiter, Billy, was very nice, but unfortunately after he took our order we never saw him again… Other people brought our food out and then we never saw any other server after that to make sure if we needed anything, or how our food was, or to offer my mom a birthday dessert =( We waited for someone to come around, but when no one did I finally went up to the hostess table to get our bill so that we wouldn’t be late for our show!

    We heard good things but we’re overall rather disappointed in the service. We waited 15 minutes for our drinks, which were overly strong and poorly mixed, and then never received a follow up after receiving our food until we stood up and had to request our check. Food was ok.

    I looked at reviews before going here today. Reviews were bad and we still went. I guess we shouldn’t have gone. I’ve been to the one at Harbor Dr and we had an excellent experience. Went to the one in Coronado tonight for my best friends birthday which was never acknowledged and it was not so great. Asked for a quiet area away from kids and they sat all the screaming kids by us. Service was slow but the place was busy. The plates were dirty and my water had some floaters. One of my guests asked for the pork chops and 15 minutes after ordering we were alerted that they were out. The server did give us 2 desserts as a piece offering and that was nice. I don’t think we’ll come back to this location. Definitely go to the harbor location one instead.

    We had a lovely meal. The service was excellent. Mahi Mahi was well prepared, although the sauce was a little heavy (my bad, I should have asked for it on the side). Salad was delicious - greens with gorgonzola and dried cherries and pecans. Our only disappointment was the fact that they were out of pork chops so my husband had a burger - it was good but not what you'd prefer for a nice dinner out. We sat outdoors which was pleasant, and not too loud despite the nearby parking lot. We'd eat there again.

    The Brigantine was very nice to switch us from outside dining to indoors. The weather was very hot. Our server didn't know if the wine I ordered was dry as I had wanted and she went to ask the bartender if it was dry. That was much nicer than just taking the easy way. Also, we received a free dessert because it was our 56th anniversary.
