“Shores Restaurant - Very Good Indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

A very enjoyable brunch with My oldest daughter, grandsons and son-in-law, the Shores Restaurant is one of the best places to enjoy the Pacific Ocean at La Jolla Shores. The service was excellent, the food was abundant, tasty and delicious, and the ambience was exceptional.
The price points for the food are a little high, but the views of the ocean and all the activities are one of the reasons we continue to eat at the Shores Restaurant at La Jolla Shores in La Jolla California. The only negative was when I called to make reservations, I was sent to the answering machine and this was at around 8 PM the evening before,
I would highly recomment this restaurant for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner . . . Enjoy!

“Quick sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We arrived and our room was not ready, so be popped into The Shores for a quick sandwich and ice tea. The food was great and it was great fun to watch the beach goers.

“See the bun and run! The waitress with a bun nearly ruined our lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

When we came up from the beach and asked where to sit the waiter said anywhere. A waitress, with an initial of R and wore a bun, immediately came over and said "Next time you need to see the hostess..can you read the sign"? & pointed to the table sign that said to see the hostess for seating. Unfortunately, she was snarly and almost ruined our lunch. Fortunately, she handed us to another waiter, Joseph, who was delightful. The food was really very good and I can recommend the Farmer's Market Salad..fresh and light!

“Excellent menu, fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

While the hotel property connected to this restaurant is a bit sleepy looking, the location is brilliant. We were thrilled by the menu and really enjoyed the food we ordered, two adults and two kids left very satisfied!
