Went to the Marine Room for a special anniversary dinner. It was nice but the restaurant has really become dated. Decor in serious need of an update. The food was good but nothing special. The thing this restaurant has going for it is the view, which is spectacular. The Marine Room is right on the beach and the views are... More

This restaurant is located on the beach in the La Jolla area. The waves are close to the windows at high tide. We visit this wonderful place a few times every year, when we spend some weeks i La Jolla. They serve wonderful seafood in an innovative way with delicious sauces and vegetables. During happy hour you may taste a... More

This restaurant serves seafood as good as anyplace one will find...well, maybe not including Italy...my wife's lobster was outstanding and my cobia was uniquely delicious. The ocean view is remarkable; the spacing/arrangement of the tables allows for private conversations; the décor is tastefully modern. Service is a little formal but our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. Why not 5... More

The setting is gorgeous right on the water. The food is excellent. Unfortunately the service was extremely poor. No hovering waiter or servers for this restaurant. Considering the prices one would think the service would include refilling water glasses, asking if people wanted a second glass of wine, and even inquiring whether the dinner met expectations. Rated 2 for service,... More

The Marine Room offers some of the best food in San Diego with absolutely the best views possible! The restaurant is right on the beach at La Jolla Shores next to the Beach and Tennis Club. It is a bit pricy, but a great place for a romantic dinner or a special family event! Check the website to find out... More

This was the last meal of our vacation and my wife's birthday meal, so it needed to be special. We booked more than another on advance to ensure a window table at sunset. The location is amazing. Later, as the tide came in, the waves were splashing the window! The food was fantastic. The Blue Crab Cake starter fantastic. My... More

The Marine Room has one of the best views in San Diego. The service is impeccable and the food is very good. We found the menu to be slightly fussy and the ambience a bit cold. Overall though, this is a very special restaurant for special occasions.

The food and view here are outstanding. As is the service. Our waiter was so understand of us having our six year with us. He was a very jolly fellow. The food was so good and when I ordered an appetizer for my main meal he didn't blink an eye. It was expensive but a real treat. The view can't... More

Having eaten all over the world, sometime one becomes wary of a restaurant with amazing views. That is not the case at the Marine Room. The excellent food is reflected in the high quality ingredients that are second to none. Classic French techniques are used while incorporating some twists. My wild mushroom and potato appetizer was excellent, as was the... More
