Just had a 5-star dining experience (which includes the food, the setting, the waitstaff and front desk, and management). My mother, sister, and I (very picky, discriminating epicureans) are staying in Laguna Beach for a week-long Thanksgiving holiday and decided to dine at Las Brisas after researching and reading stellar reviews on this Laguna Beach restaurant. Kudos and our gratitude... More

prefer the dinners to breakfast brunch but the view in the am is gorgeous. The food is very good. My standards for Mexican food are higher in southern California that's why I don't say excellent. The cocktails are good service excellent do wish they had better bathroom. It was clean but needs an update.

An anniversary dinner at Las Brisas. What could be better? As a former long-term resident of OC, I've been to Las Brisas many times. It's where you take out of town guests to give them a California "wow". The views are unmatched and the ambiance is lovely. On an off peak Monday night, no crowds to contend with. The menu... More

This restaurant has incredible view of the ocean & good food. It's a very busy place & it took a little too long to get our food & drinks, because the servers are just too busy. Maybe they need more staff on busy days. Overall it was good & we had a nice day.

When you lunch by the windows of this historic former Victor Hugo Inn, the colorful drama of the coast is only outshined by the amazing dishes and excellent service. Our group enjoyed everything from ahi sashimi, poke, seafood salad, taco salad and gazpacho with lobster--all of them winners. Equally wonderful desserts--profiteroles and an almond basket filled with ice cream and... More

I continue to take out of town guests to Las Brisas when in the area as the view is one that can't be beat on the bluff overlooking Main Beach and areas south in Laguna. If possible arrive before sunset and sit on the patio sipping a margarita and taking in the view. Drinks are spendy, so it is about... More

Sadly, this restaurant has become all about its location, and the food is secondary. It once was called Victor Hugo's, and had awesome food.

Went there for their Sunday brunch for my best friend's birthday. This place overlooks the beach and the ambience is excellent. The brunch is a four course meal with complimentary champagne. I brought a tiramisu cake for my party and even shared it to our waiters:) Reserve ahead of time for excellent seats. If you're driving from 133 highway, the... More

Yes, Las Brisas has awesome sunset views and delicious guac, but is that enough?First there was the required valet parking even though the parking lot was right there and handy. Then we were on the outdoor patio, and no one came to wait on us until we asked. In all fairness, there seemed to be a change of waitstaff going... More
