Description: Inspired by its beachfront setting, Hotel del Coronado’s signature restaurant 1500 OCEAN spotlights California Coastal cuisine with fresh local ingredients. Start with a craft cocktail at the Sunset Bar overlooking the Pacific, and then venture inside for an epicurean adventure of seasonal dishes by French Master Chef Patrick Ponsaty paired with exceptional wines.

The location is spectacular with excellent views of the beach and ocean. When we first arrived we were guided to our table and served cold water. However, while every other table around us (literally) was being served no one came to serve us. Apparently our table had not been assigned to a waiter. The manager was so embarrassed that he personally apologized and comped our drinks. I judge a restaurant on the food and service but also how situations are managed, this could not have been handled better.
Tried to book on Open Table and nothing available until 8.30. Called and made a reservation through the Hotel Coronado at the exact time we wanted.

First, if you're here, you're at the Hotel Del Coronado. I don't know if there is a better San Diego location to have dinner.
I went for a business dinner. About 16 of us. I usually dread these things, and the only reason I went along was the above stated reason. The experience was well worth the time.

First and foremost, the service was truly exceptional. The staff made us feel at ease and made us feel at ease through out the entire meal. Glasses were filled quickly, and plates were cleared in a timely manner. And as with all exceptional service, it was nearly invisible.

As far as the food, it was very good. Well prepared, and thought out. I would recommend the yellow tail sashimi, and the chipolte chocolate cake. You can't really go wrong in between. Afterward, have a stroll on the beach and enjoy the magnificent Hotel Del.

Food is good, close to great and very creative. The thing that makes this place hands down is the beautiful view. Sunset, surf rolling in and all the beautiful tourists strolling along the walkways at sunset. All I can say is wow. Really spectacular setting. Service was great as well.

Absolutely amazing. We had a wonderful table outside with a beautiful view of the sea and the people walking by (thanks concierge for the booking!). We had a four course meal with matching wines from the sommelier and all were superb. We were also surprised at the generous portion sizes. Meal and wines could not be faulted - one course we had Bollinger matched. :-) Of course the final bill was suitably high but it was worth every penny.
