I came for the second time to this unique restaurant in the beautiful area of La Jolla in San Diego. The view is beyond compare. You are in the ocean. The food outstanding. Very good fish, excellent salads and meat for those not fond of seafood. Deserves a visit

I am going to skip the obvious draw of the Marine Room's sweeping views of it's Pacific waterfront location that literally floods the senses as you sit in their dining room. Yes, the view itself is enough to call in a reservation immediately, but it is the food that deserves the true praise. Have you ever seen the film "The... More

The menu and wine list at the Marine Room rival those of any top restaurant. But the real magic happens at high tide! The waves of the Pacific Ocean crash into the front windows!! Very cool. A must visit for travelers to the San Diego area.

Okay, let's be clear. The view from the dining are of this restaurant is spectacular! I can't image what a high-tide dinner is like here with the waves crashing against the windows. We had some bad luck that it was mainly cloudy and even rained while we were here. But it cleared up later in the dinner and we got... More

Back after a few years. Business dinner, large Group, full satisfaction. Kind service, nice wine list, well served, tasty food. A first class place that can take the best out of your time. Seagulls, seals, pelicans can be seen after sundown. The ocean waves remain in your memory.

We enjoyed great selections and loved trying each other's dishes. The view of the sunset is amazing, and then the drama of the seagulls and seals is fantastic! The tide brings the show right up to the windows edge. Great night.

Had a 6:30 reservation so we could watch the sun go down behind the waves at La Jolla Shores. Light rain had blown through, leaving clouds on the horizon. Added visual treat: bride and wedding party getting photos on the beach, including wading into the water. We started with a Caesar salad, tossed fresh at table side and always a... More
