The patio at Las Brisas provides a splendid view, or you can ask for a window table inside. The food is quite good and the service was solid and friendly, though our waiter did disappear for a while. There is a $7 fee to valet park, which is ok I suppose, though you'd think they would let dinner patrons park... More

Las Brisas is a must every time we are in the Newport Beach Laguna Beach area . The food and drinks are great and served in a fantastic atmosphere. Schedule your time there around sunset and bring your camera, it will be the best you have ever seen !

We love Laguna Beach and just had to go to Las Brisas, because we always enjoyed it in the past. However, I guess I had only been on weekdays in the off-season. We happened to choose a sunny Sunday afternoon in July, and the place was mobbed. Valet parking was $7, but it was necessary since we just couldn't find... More

Excellent location with a wonderful view of the beach but I was disappointed in the drinks and the price of the food. In past years I've come and ordered the large nacho platter - about $12 or so. I chose Las Brisas so a granddaughter who was joining us could find the restaurant easily and enjoy the patio and view.... More

We've been coming here for special occasions for many years. We almost always order one of the specials of the evening. At $35 for the swordfish we ordered this time, not inexpensive; but it was worth every penny. Our only disappointment for the evening was that they did not bring us anything for the three special occasions we were celebrating... More

I arranged a Sunday brunch for my out of state friends at Las Brisas, in Laguna Beach, CA. on July 20, 2014. When we arrived we decided to Valet park. The sign at the valet station was a little confusing, something about a brunch fee for $4, Lunch fee $7 min 3 hrs, and an event/beach parking for $25. After... More

Although a bit pricy, we enjoyed our meal -- Main Beach margarita $12, a Mahi Mahi special, shredded beef enchiladas and the best gazpacho we have tried, and we've had good gazpacho in Spain and Mexico. It included a tomato sorbet, which kept the soup cold and added flavor. Even if someone doesn't want to eat there, it's worth walking... More

Location, location, location...Fabulous service, wait staff, drinks, breakfast, lunch, dinner. The food is exceptional. Do go on your birthday as the complementary dessert is one you will remember forever. Laguna Beach is 100 miles from our home and it is a destination meal for us well worth the drive. You're gonna like the ocean view.

Rarely, if ever, have I photographed my food. I always thought is was rather an odd thing to do. BUT this sure is a beautiful presentation and coupled with the beautiful view of the ocean and the beautiful people surrounding us made the overall experience fabulous. Complete California laid back feel; no one rushing you through dinner to turn the... More

We had an amazing experience at Las Brisas. We got to choose our seats and sat in a booth that overlooked the ocean. Absolutely stunning! The calamari was the perfect choice for our appetizer, better than any I had ever tasted. Our main dishes were nothing short of perfect as well. Best authentic Mexican food I have tasted. We were...
