Loved the octopus salad, fresh fish and great service! All of the entrees were cooked to perfection. Chef accommodated gluten free without any issues. Will return next time we're in town!

I was visiting San Diego a couple weeks ago and had dinner here with some friends on a Saturday afternoon. Service and food were very good. I think my friends will return again now that they know about it. (My husand and I try to visit here when we are in town.) My only issue is that there is a... More

the day started sunny but by the time we had arrived at La Jolla the fog had rolled in.Determined,like many others,to eat on the terrace we braved the elements with a little help from the staff who provide the blankets.Excellent fish in what I am told is a restaurant with fabulous views.Can't wait to go back to see them.

Always a must when visiting this San Diego environs. Most delicious meal we have had during our winter vacation this year. The waiter was excellent, courteous, friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable, making good suggestions. The patio setting overlooking the Pacific is lovely and the chairs and tables of higher quality than typical outdoor furniture. The ample presence of heaters kept the... More

Perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing but the pasta with clams was just ok. The service was less than great.....the calamari appetizer arrived after our salads even though we ordered it with our drinks. The server was detached and seemingly uninterested in being sure we had what we needed. It was winter and dark when we had dinner so... More

This is a perfect place to feel like your on the California coast with all the luxury of LaJolla. If your trying to take in the LaJolla scene I would recommend this place. Food is good, people are professional, and just a great LaJola Scene.

Ocean Terrace views are spectacular and the food is equally amazing. There's a great vibe here....people are happy to be there and the staff is working hard to see you are satisfied. I would highly recommend both the terrace and the bar. It's a little pricey but it's an experience worth splurging on. I highly recommend going here while you're... More

Had an out of town guest here who wanted to eat somewhere with a view. Managed to get onto the Terrace about an hour before sunset (reservations a must). Wound up at the bar first, as I was a little early, and then got seated right on time. The bar is worth considering too if you can get a seat.... More
