Our brunch was exceptional! We would certainly recommend this Sunday brunch to our friends!
The only attraction is the historical hotel itself, the food is just so so, not worth $99, and service is ok. The room is dim and too many small tables allocated.
Good food. Way over priced!
We go once a year, because my 91 year old aunt likes it. No self parking and valet is $20.00 with validation. Not good value in my opinion.
Our server Ivonne was above and beyond,,,,
An amazing spread of high quality offerings - likely the best I’ve ever seen! We ate for two hours and were unable to sample everything! Highly recommended for special occasions, or for when you want to splurge on a great buffet meal in an historic setting.
An outstanding venue and the food was beautifully displayed. Well worth the money.
Lots of options and different foods to choose from. Great if you want to keep healthy or splurge. I recommend you get there early to beat the crowd.
For $98, it's expensive for lunch but the food quality and variety is very good. This was our 4th time to have the brunch over 10 years. Food quality has not changed which is good.
I would suggest that the king crab legs, one of the more expensive items, be served steamed and whole instead of halved and cooled on ice. Its cold flavor doesn't come out as much as when steamed. I spent as much time removing the crab meat from the halves as I would have had they been whole (would probably save on waste as well). The melted butter is essential, and goes much better with warmed crab legs.
I know most prefer beef/tri-tip and lamb cooked on the rare red side, but I would prefer if some portions of each were cooked through to ensure healthiness. The meats did taste good.
Was a little disappointed the guacamole was served without being mixed with spices and vegetables. It seemed as though it came from a bag and was not fresh.
The deserts were excellent.
The omelet tasted great.
I left a 15% tip for the food quality although service was intermittent. Our used dishes were removed promptly 3 times, but our water glasses were never refilled until I intentionally asked. Even our coffee cups were filled - but no water.
I appreciated the lack of loud music; nice and quiet.
The server Ignacio kept forgetting to bring what he was asked to bring and I kept having to ask other people, but when others asked him for assistance he got their requests handled promptly. Not sure what the issue was but I probably won’t be back again for brunch. The food was okay, not the best brunch I’ve had.
Was down visiting San Diego for the Notre Dame - Navy football game. Our flight back to San Francisco was not until 4:30p, so we decided to drive over to Coronado for brunch at the Del. What a fantastic decision. Brunch was amazing. The number of food stations and the variety of choices was outstanding. I think I made 3 trips before deciding that I could not eat another bite. The bottomless mimosa's were perfect to celebrate Notre Dame's win the previous evening.
Third visit to the Sunday Brunch. Totally uncomfortable, the air conditioning was blowing on us during the entire time, too cold, complained to management but not resolved by the time we left. The waiter even warned us that it would be cold and we were seated there anyway - in the main room furthest from the windows. Silverware on the tables was cold, coffee could not stay warm, surrounding tables were complaining. Also, why have a dress code when it is not enforced? Certainly not business casual, men in hats, jeans, flipflops, undershirts, women similar, not up to the standard anymore for that pricepoint. Had to ask for coffee refills and replacement cutlery. Don’t plan to return.
Charlie our server couldn’t been nicer! Guided through the brunch, making great recommendations. Very knowledgeable about the area as well!
Julio was an awesome server ! This was the perfect brunch for my parents first time in San Diego. Highly recommend!!!
The food was good as usual. I was very disappointed on the service. It seemed like I waited forever just to get a cup of coffee. The waitress kept saying whoops I forgot about you guys. For what they charge for brunch, the service should be a lot better. I will look at other options next time I'm in San Diego.
Deliciosa comida de calidad pero excesivamente caro 5,000 pesos x dos pers desayuno????
The elegant Crown room doesn’t disappoint; the history of the Hotel continues to fascinate and draw people. Get there early and stay as long as you can to savor all the items at the brunch. It is expensive which can be a drawback, but for special events, it is worth it
Amazing brunch with all types of foods and desserts. Well worth the money and would definitely book your reservation early!
Really not worth the price. $211. for brunch eggs, and other foods. I would not go back. Way overpriced.
I took my daughter and granddaughter to brunch, which was awesome! We had a great meal and a great time.
We came to have brunch to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Jim, our waiter, was exceptional. He kept the drinks flowing and made us laugh. Overall, we had a wonderful time. Food was good, the setting amazing and we made some beautiful memories!
Save up for this incredible brunch! Although quite pricey it is worth every penny. Artisan foods, freshly prepared menu items, not your standard warming dish food. From an elaborate seafood bar, to sushi made fresh, authentic tamales and the most to die for desserts, this is the best brunch around.
Beautiful location and lovely hotel. Explore the hotel and grounds but skip brunch, experience was not remotely worth the price tag.
The food was absolutely delicious! There were so many selections; there is definitely something for everyone!
The Crown Room was simply "top shelf". The personnel were extremely friendly and helpful; the setting was perfect; the food -- excellent. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary, and this was the perfect finish to our stay in San Diego.
Food excellent but our server was not attentive.
We celebrated our first wedding anniversary with a Crown Room Brunch and although the experience is pricy, it seemed well worth it in the end for the fun of the ambiance and the incredible array of food and drinks. There were SO many options and it all tasted incredible! Our server, Gayle, was very friendly and helpful, as were all of the staff. We are already brainstorming about a return trip for future special occasions!
For the price food was average I was very disappointed but the ambiance and experience was nice
I thought the waiters were responsible for to many tables. We had to flag him down everytime we wanted a drink or refill. Also, we had to put our dirty dishes on the next table because he didn’t pick them up very often. There was only four of us and don’t feel we are picky or demanding, it was just irritating after awhile. He was very polite to us at the end of the meal, after the crowd thinned out. Overall we enjoyed the experience and would do it again.
Cindy, our server, made the experience so much better. Food was great. Quality of champagne could be better for the price.
What a fun treat! Everything in the over the top buffet was delicious! Service was fabulous!
Service was amazing. Food was so very good. Fun for a very special occasion. You could not do this often!
We had an amazing waiter and spent 3 hours enjoying all the fun food and drinks! What an amazing way to spend a lazy Sunday!
The food and atmosphere were amazing!! Pricey but definitely worth it. So many choices and all presented beautifully!!!
Marvelous brunch in a glorious setting!! Beautiful room and amazing choices of food and drink. Awesome friendly staff. Outstanding.
I was expecting an excellent service and good food for the price we paid, instead the food was ok and the service was really slow and not very attentive. We had to ask for silverware and water, no one was pick up our plates and when we were ready for our bill, our waiter disappeared for 15 minutes. The table next to is complained too.
Best Brunch in San Diego! Food is amazing. Great for a special occasion. Waiters are so attentive and friendly. Just a very special time. Highly recommended.
Definitely overpriced, but for special occasions, it’s something to experience.
The location is beautiful and is fun for special occasions. The buffet is large and the champagne and Bloody Mary’s are great. The only downside was that from all of the many choices, the food was good but I never had that bite of anything that was amazing.
It was very nice I didn’t care for how spread out the food was and the service wasn’t that great seemed very understaffed but otherwise nice
Excellent service, food was very good, but the price is too high for the experience! I've been there, done that, do not need to do it again even though we enjoyed it greatly, one time was enough.
