I had a business dinner and the food was outstanding. The service was very good and they made sure everything was taken care of. They could increase the beer selection a bit.

Had not visited here in a few years but the place is still all first class. When your waiter addresses you by your name you know you're not at Taco Bell. The 4 course meals my wife and I ordered were fantastic , the bass, mussels , barrata and filets were all very good. We brought along one of our... More

This is a terrific location, nice view of the water and great food. Would highly recommend it. Food is pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

We sat outside at a quiet and comfortable table. I ordered the squash and lobster soup. The best I ever tasted. I then enjoyed the lamb chops well prepared and complemented with variations of flavors to your taste. My wife enjoyed the surf and turf. Conversation was easy because it was so quiet. We experienced prompt service and would return... More

To celebrate our 2nd Anniversary, I took my wife out for a nice dinner at 1500 Ocean. After getting settled in, we decided to go with the four course tasting menu and included the wine pairing. What an incredible choice that turned out to be. Between the oysters, the salad and the lobster bisque the starter courses were phenomenal. For... More

A friend took us for dinner last night, and it was an amazing experience. However, thankfully my wife is not a big eater - the three scallops ($38 or so) looked pretty lost on her plate. Not that we misunderstanding - as seasoned travelers we know that fine dining is not about full plates - but compared to mine and... More

What a dining experience! The food was great, I had the scallops and my friend had the Catch of the Day. Our waiter was professional yet friendly. The sunset view of the beach was to die for.

Everything from the setting to the service, wine list and food was fantastic. They have a dessert where they make ice cream tableside - highly recommend. Great venue for a special dinner out.

The food was good, but the atmosphere was even better. Our waiter was kinda odd. When I asked him for a suggestion for mexican food, he sent us downtown to the homeless area to a counter service place with mediocre food. But Ocean 1500 has good food. You are right on the ocean.

We ate there while staying at Coronado. The food is very good and service amazing. However, price is high for what you get. The portion is on the smaller side. Portion is comparable for fine dining restaurant of this caliber but price is a b it higher for comparable restaurant.
