Fodor's Review

The world-famous Hotel Del Coronado’s top dining room is steps from the beach where Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon frolicked in “Some Like it Hot.” Its elegant interior dining rooms evokes posh poolside cabanas while the wide terrace embraces ocean views—all ideal settings for special occasions. Seafood, much of it local, shines in starters like the yellowtail crudo with chili-flecked avocado mousse and succulent poached white prawns. Sharable entrées like rack of lamb and duck two ways are easily paired with wines from the extensive list. The lobster mashed potato side is deliciously decadent. Unusual desserts like chocolate chipotle cake cap a sweet seaside experience.
