My husband has been wanting to go to the Marine Room for a while. I don't eat seafood so clearly I haven't been to excited about the idea and therefore holding out. During restaurant week the menu actually had some great non seafood options so I agreed to make a reservation. As others have said, parking isn't that great but... More

Views of waves breaking onto the close up beach from virtually every table thanks to what seems to be entire walls of glass. White cloth tables with superior service from tuxedo dressed waiters. The menu is creative but not too eccentric. The freshest of ingredients go into all of their preparations, be it seafood or meats. Our fish entrees were... More

This is a very expensive restaurant that is difficult to find even with MapQuest. If you choose to spend the money because everything is very high priced, check to make sure the tide is coming in and the surf will be high. We specifically went thinking we would be seeing water "crashing" against the big windows....we were very disappointed because... More

Marine room has been on my bucket list for years. Finally went for our 45 anniversary. It was unbelievable. Everything we ordered was exceptional. Appetizer and salad were a real treat. Then we had steak and lobster, so good. And the extras on the plate were very fun. Go here at least once in your life. Try to get a... More

The fresh fish, preparation, service, and one of a kind view of the ocean made this an experience to remember.

Loved the service, the overly elegant appointments and grand ocean view. Our family and friends party of 12 were well taken care of, especially when it came to food and beverage.

I take a lot of business clients here and the service is always excellent, food is very good and the view is always stunning! The best time to go is when they have their HIGH TIDE dinners and you can watch the water splashing on the windows. Yes, its pricey but you pay for the view. It's one of the... More

San Diego has its share of beach from restaurants with ocean views, but none get closer to the beach and water at high tide than the Marine Room. And, in my opinion, it is hands down the best of the bunch. It is upscale and expensive (for San Diego). Located at the South end of Lajolla Shores Beach, the large... More

The view from most every table in the restaurant is great, and best if you can be there for sunset. However, the decor is dated, and the service is lacking. We made a reservation on a Saturday night for 6 people at 7pm. When we arrived at 7pm sharp, the hostess let us know they were resetting the table. As... More
