A historic restaurant located in La Jolla Shores, next door to the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. The restaurant has a large dining room and a few different levels. The first thing you notice waking inside is the impressive views, the restaurant is ON the beach, & water has come up & inside of the restaurant (historically speaking). The staff & service is tip-top & the wine/drink selection are spectacular. I tried a beef cheek appetizer which was in a phenomenal juice/sauce, talk about licking the bowl! The scallop & ahi appetizer were also tasty with great presentation & fun sauces to try! My main course was the filet mignon and I was able to trade my potato side for a yummy risotto! The rest of my party had really great meals that had much more generous portions: osso bucu(?)..braised lamb & the chicken entrees. Both were cooked to perfection with unique sides. Great for a business meeting, romantic date or to splurge a little!Recommended for:

Vanilla poached lobster and dessert tasting menus pair nicely with sunset views at this 72-year-old landmark restaurant. But the hottest tables are for chocolate brioche French toast at “high tide breakfasts,” from 7 to 10 on weekday mornings, when the rollicking waves set the mood. —Brendan SpiegelRecommended for:

This is our family's go-to restaurant for special occasions. It's so very San Diego in its location and the food is wonderful!
As shown in the picture, the Marine Room has floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook La Jolla Bay. It is not unusual for a kayaker to float on or to catch a glimpse of a playful sea lion.
Chef Bernard is a bit of a local legend, creative, hilarious and very French. One of THE best times to come is during their High Tide Dinners or High Tide Brunch. These you need to book beforehand. During high tide, the waves literally crash up on the windows and are quite spectacular. The brunch is especially amazing with everything from seafood, updated brunch foods, omelet station, desserts, breads, hot foods, etc.
It's a bit pricey, but well worth it for the all around experience.Recommended for:
