“Great dinner with good atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We were staying at the hotel and had dinner at 1500 one night. You have to try their vodka lavender lemonade, what a great cocktail! The waiter was extremely nice and more than happy to share his suggestions. Atmosphere is relaxed but refined. Both of our meals were very good, we enjoyed everything about the night.

“Fresh food in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Some friends met us the first night and we went to 1500 Ocean. It is a beautiful space but ask to sit with an ocean view. The food is unusual and farm fresh, they grow all their herbs on site. Their cocktails are unusual and very tasty. We all loved what we ordered. And the service was spot on.

“Best Lamb & Sea Bass”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Staying at the Del we decided to have our 36th anniversary dinner there (1500 Ocean). Service was impeccable with Mark (our Waiter) a true expert at making us feel comfortable with our dining choices. I had the lamb and was blown away at the Chef's rendering with each slice melting in my mouth (best ever). My wife had the Sea Bass and could not keep from talking about the preparation/presentation.
The entire dining experience was well worth the price as we truly enjoyed our meal.
We wish we would have dined there the following night.

“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

During our most recent trip to The Del, we stayed for 4 nights to visit with our daughter and had dinner reservations each night because it was San Diego restaurant week. Thanks goodness it was, because 1500 Ocean is not usually open on Sunday nights! Each of us had a spectacular meal (at a mere $40 each) which would not have covered our entrees, let alone the appetizer and dessert! We sure were lucky and enjoyed every fork-full!
