Great Birthday Dinner Experience

With an early reservation, we had the best table in the house with a view overlooking Laguna Beach at the end of the day. We chose Las Brisas to celebrate my 55 years on this planet.

After a long day at work, this restaurant was just the ticket! Front of house service was good - perhaps a bit of overkill because we were asked three times if we would like another drink (alcoholic). Generally though, they cared for us well. Back of house/the chefs were great. We didn't have to wait too long for the meals... More

We went for our date at night time for dinner around 9pm. The view is beautiful but it was night time so we couldn't see much through the window. Food and service is great! On average for dinner is $30 per entree per person excluding other fees. Fancy restaurant for lovely couples!

These guys rely too heavily on the location. The view is stunning and the location is arguably the best in Laguna, which is arguably one of the best US coastal beaches. Either way, you get the feeling that this is enough to bring customers in. Food and drinks weren't bad, relatively expensive, but tasty. It was a busy Sunday afternoon,... More

Beautiful location and they were very kind when we were delayed for our lunch reservation. The restaurant was busy even though it was almost 2pm and although our server was very friendly, service was slow. We had to ask more than once for water and additional drinks and we had only ordered appetizers and salads. Not sure if we will... More

Never had a bad drink or appetizer. The guacamole is the best always. I love the scallop and bacon wrap shrimp dish and the Ahi tower. You can't get any better than right on the cliffs of Laguna Beach too. The bartenders at outside seating were really personable and made us the best margaritas as well as a few laughs.... More

This is a very popular restaurant. There is an outside patio - we ate inside. We had a reservation for 1:30 but were delayed to almost 2. Was fine for us. The one point I would make is this is not a buffet - rather a prix fixe lunch. Service was very good. Food was very good. So all good.... More

Waited for an hour and 45 minutes for the main dish to arrive. Had to ask for water. Only one dish arrived after all the wait and only after we threatened to leave. No apology, just a note that the kitchen is busy. It's true sometime things are just not perfect, but they didn't even offer a coffee and apology.... More

Had Sunday brunch here. Setting is beautiful. Place is very large. Decor is Mexican. Brunch is $40 for a four-course meal. Starter is a small fruit plate (tasty), then soup or salad. I had the cream of broccoli which tasted good but had weird straw-like fibers in it. I think it was the broccoli but it was very strange and... More

My husband and I had lunch at Las Brisas on a Monday early afternoon. The staff was friendly and professional. We were seated quickly at a table with a beautiful view. We started with guacamole and chips - fresh and authentic - which was indicative of the rest of the meal! I had chicken posole (mildly spicy soup with hominy... More
