Two couples: the Ceasar salad shared by 3 of us was sooooo good; fourth guest loved his lobster bisque. We all had seafood for our entrees: monk fish, pompano, Alaskan halibut and sea scallops. Each of us was thrilled with the gentle, perfect cooking of the fish and the innovative combinations.

A bit long in the tooth, but excellent drinks, food and service. High tide offers a special treat with the waves of the Pacific Ocean almost breaking on the magnificent glass windows. Excellent restaurant for those special occasions that warrant something sophisticated and elegant.

I really enjoyed this place. The food was sublime. We had a very creative salad, topped by walnuts. The entree was surf and turf. The steak was tender and delicious. The bread was okay. Could have had better crust so they could work on that. The dessert was a Creme Brûlée which was very good. Excellent service and a friendly... More

It does not get better than this: 5-star food, the waves breaking virtually at the wall of the restaurant, and life in La Jolla. The Marine Room consistently delivers fine food, superbly crafted cocktails, and sunset views to-die-for. We sampled the Alaskan halibut (excellent walnut-spice puree), the sea prawns (with a little heat from chilis) and classic lobster, all of... More

We have visited this restaurant before and got a great experience, we decided to go for or 14th wedding anniversary, the staff provided us a great window table, and we got to see a great show by the tide and the seagulls and a couple of seals swimming in the evening. The food was perfect, and the service was just... More

The atmosphere is excellent, the service is 1st rate, the view of the pacific is amazing especially when the sea lions are surfing the waves, the food is very good, and the ambient noise is low enough so you can talk without shouting. Our party had a great time, and seeing Stephen Tyler hanging out for dinner and drinks was... More

Great restaurant in La Jolla, CA. The view was the first thing to notice. When you walk in the door the ocean is right outside the windows that are directly in front of you. As you sit in the bar area you can watch the tide come in right to the bottom of the window. The food is excellent along... More

We arrived when it was dark and as soon as you enter, the attention is captured by the sight of the waves crashing near the large windows. We were rapidly seated very close to the windows and rapidly attended to. We chose seafood for our dinner and both the monkfish and the pompano were cooked to perfection. On the wine... More

One of our friends was celebrating her birthday and she decided to eat dinner at The Marine Room. This restaurant is located right on the beachfront next to a tennis club/resort. We arrived early in the evening for our reservation and were quickly seated. We were a party of six (6). We had two servers that were very attentive throughout... More
