Great food, average service

We were at the Marine Room for a special anniversary. The food was excellent and very much enjoyed. The location is spectacular especially if you get a window table.

My girlfriend and I went here to enjoy a scenic, romantic dinner with waves clashing up against the glass during their notorious "high tide dinner" season. I reserved ahead of time to make sure there would be a good table reserved for us. Let me just say now, the experience I had was not what I was expecting. It started... More

Had drinks here and wow! What an amazing view! Worth making sure you stop here even just for drinks - watching the waves crash through the huge panoramic windows is worth every penny!

This is a very unique property, sitting on the sand in La Jolla. Try to go at high tide; the waves splash your windows! When we first sat down, there was a kid on an inner tube, and people swimming in front of us:) The food was excellent, with great presentation, also. We were celebrating 3 big events, and they...

If you want to impress your date, or are honeymooning here in San Diego and looking for a one-of-a kind restaurant, I recommend dining at the Marine Room. Make reservations in advance so that you can get a table with a view of the Pacific--I'm talking glass wall where you can view and hear the sound of the ocean as... More

We were seated at our window table overlooking the Pacific Ocean and watched the swimmers, surfers, snorklers, and kayakers frolic right in front of us. A wonderful view. For dinner, my husband devoured a USDA Prime strip steak with ozette potatoes, farm vegetables, and a Syrah glaze. I ate Faroe Island grilled salmon with macadamia, barberry freekeh, English peas, and... More

A favorite restaurant for our family going back 35+ years so when we made plans to visit San Diego in late June we booked a table for 5 at the Marine Room. Unique setting (literally on the beach with the waves lapping/crashing against the huge floor to ceiling well-engineered windows) was as special as ever and we lucked out with... More

Unusually stiff for La Jolla, but excellent food and wine with a view to match. The only negative comment is that some of the furniture and decor is looking a little tired.

Excellent, off the chart service and phenomenal seafood. A bit stuffy for La Jolla but worth going. Wonderful view of the ocean. We went at high tide and thought the waves we're going to come through the windows.

The atmosphere (especially at High Tide) is incredible!! The waves actually crash onto the building and splash onto the windows. The food is always exceptional. Even the kids (ages 12 and 15) love it. Put this on your "Must do" list when visiting the San Diego area.
