    Ambiance is great, has lots of potential. However, service was extremely disappointing. I made a reservation, yet still had to wait 15 minutes for a table. I had requested a table with a view, outside & was seated in the back, next to the kitchen. After another 15 minutes of our server not coming out to get our drink order, I had to call over a host to request a different table, and a server sent. The manager then stepped in and escorted us to a better table and resolved the issue. Despite this, the service continued being slow and mediocre. Food quality was okay.

    The very best atmosphere and view at Peohe’s! Our server Melissa was so awesome!! She was very helpful with questions about the menu and suggestions on what to order. She was very attentive, and had a great personality. I ordered the sesame salmon and was so moist! I highly recommend Peohe’s for any occasion!!

    Very pleasant and interactive waiter. Beautiful view. Moscato Sangria, Fleur D'Lis, and Faux-Jito drinks were delicious. PuPu Platter was good and the Prime Rib French Dip was the best my partner has ever had. Key Lime Pie is not a pie but it was still good.

    Went for Mother's Day dinner (lots of kids of course). Food very good (although was a fixed price meal at $69/per person for basket of rolls (pretty good), small salad or soup, entree with mashed potatoes, and dessert (one bite of ice cream on good sized lava cake), and they ran out of the prime rib right before I ordered. Long wait for 1st course, then entree then dessert because they were so busy and short staffed certainly, although our server was sweet, attentive, and EXCELLENT. Seated at excellent window table with drop dead gorgeous views of bay (lucky us!). Will return, but not on a holiday. Ambiance lovely.

    Mother’s Day dinner turned bad. Restaurant was clearly overwhelmed and overbooked. We waited hour and half between apps and main course. Apps we got were not good. Kids were hungry and cranky. My wife unhappy on her special day. Mains never came, we finally decided to leave. Service staff and manager was apologetic but this the family dinner, special occasion was ruined. They should really manage capacity better.

    It was Mother's Day so I understand how busy it gets. We did have to wait a longer time after we ordered our food. But when we did get it, my Halibut selection was adequate, not very flavorful and wasn't warm enough, especially for what you pay for. I have eaten at Peohe's and it was always very satisfying, just not this time. However, the bar selection was excellent, and with that, the four of us really enjoyed ourselves.

    We were seated a little before our reservation time of 4:00PM. This was Mother’s Day, so it was expected that the place would be busy. We were seated and it took about 15 minutes for the waitress to stop by and greet us/take drink orders. It took another 15 minutes or so to get drinks. The staff was well aware of these delays and remained apologetic. We were never offered refills on other becerages unless they came around to pour more water. The entire service took almost 3 hours with long waits of 20-30 minutes in between each course. The selections for food was amazing as always and the food did not disappoint either. It was also nice to watch the coastline and downtown area while we waited. The staff appeared tired and flustered but were all very friendly and attentive when approached.

    Fixed menu for Mother’s Day… way over priced for a 3 course meal $69…. Even with a fixed menu, we were there over 2 hours waiting for our meals to be served. We grew up in San Diego and this was the worst experience at Peohe’s ever had.😬

    Mother's Day was crowded. The hostess staff weren't friendly, no smiles, no happy Mother's Day wishes. They were busy and it showed. The food was just ok, I think the kitchen was slammed so the food came out somewhat cold, our order got mixed up but the server corrected the issues. Overall value was good for a prefixed menu, we had a good time. I think it was just crowded and they didn't have the staff for the amount of guests that day. Usually an awesome experience, this time it was just average.

    I was little disappointed that we were not able to order form their regular menu after I confirmed the week before that the menu would be available to order from. My husband’s prime rib was served at the wrong temperature and one of the appetizers ordered was forgotten and then arrived with the entrees. The staff was quick to resolve the issues. Overall service was quick and friendly. I did think that $32 was a little steep for a lobster roll though.

    Mother’s Day was expected to be a busy day. However, for a restaurant in Coronado with the price per plate it was subpar. Pros: Gorgeous view. Nice interior with plenty of natural lighting. Seated at a comfortable booth. Nice menu selection. Was taken at reservation time. Cons: Service was terrible. Food was terrible. Overpriced low quality food. We’ve been to most of these types of restaurants all over San Diego. This was our first and most likely last visit here. I made reservations on Open Table. We arrived 5-10 min prior to our reservation. We were seated at a nice booth with a view as per my request. Our waitress came to our table shortly to get our drink orders. After our drinks were delivered we weren’t asked if we were ready to order. Our waitress, came back another 15-25 minutes later to finally take our order, after my husband asked another waitress where our waitress was. She took our order. Then dropped off muffins and appetizers another 5-10 minutes after that. They really should’ve provided the muffins with the drinks or right off the bat when seated. Then we wouldn’t have minded waiting to order. We have young children. The appetizers were ok. The muffins and mimosas were probably the best thing we had there. Their signature Benedict was a disgrace. Overcooked, missing yolk, fishy and underwhelming. The crab and spinach omelette was haphazardly thrown together. The kids meals were something you would expect from Red Lobster, but I think Red Lobster probably does a better job. Our waitress was overwhelmed. She may have been busy brown nosing the regulars. I voiced my opinion about the meal. She picked up on how upset and disappointed we both were. I could tell she treated our table differently anyway. I had high expectations for this place. Next time, I’ll just go to Del Mar, La Jolla, or Point Loma to eat instead.

    I wish to add to the chorus of voices criticizing the food and service on Mother's Day. The hostesses had all the charm of a Soviet prison worker. Clearly the staff was overworked and kitchen was backed up despite that we were there on the early side and saw mostly empty tables. It took 30 minutes for the food to arrive and the "hot" dishes were actually cold to the touch. If I wasn't so hungry and the food didn't take forever to serve, I would've sent everything back. The views are gorgeous, of course, but Peohe's is showing its age: what used to be "fancy" 25 years ago needs a serious update. And, unlike 25 years ago, San Diego now has a genuine food scene and options galore... so why would we waste our time and money at this place again?

    Excellent place for romantic dinner. It is a little pricy but worth the money. All of our food was great, our waitress Cara was exceptionally great, always checking on us and keeping our drinks filled, always greeted us with a smile. The views are so beautiful, you have the lights reflecting on the ocean and downtown San Diego on the other side . My wife and I really enjoy Peohe's. We love that even on a busy night it never really gets loud in there . We will be going back soon .

    This is not the Peohe’s that it used to be. We have been going there from Time to time for 40 years. This visit no one got good Food!! Prime Rib was very tough. Sea Bass was like an old time fish patty. The replacement Halibut had way too much Salt added. And the vegetables were Raw. This Restaurant is no longer on our preferred list, very Sorry to have to say!!!

    Service and ambience was great. In general, the food was good. The lobster bisque was sub-par. It had an “off” flavour/taste and we had to request sherry to drizzle after the bisque was served. The Sherry brought it up a notch, but in both of our opinions this recipe needs to be reworked to become authentic and tasty.

    Since you asked….To be fair it was a ( day before) Mother’s Day weekend with a wedding party…took 30 minutes to get a drink, about 50 minutes to be served. Servers were a little frazzled…management should have been primed for a busy afternoon. Food was pretty good but a little disappointed…I’m hoping a mid day afternoon would have been better.
