“Great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I knew this place as a hangout in the evening for the young crowd. But at lunchtime, it offers great food and a fantastic view. It has Mexican food too but it is not really a Mexican restaurant. The grilled fish is very good. They mixed up our order of steak. In general, the service was friendly but not very competent.

“Nice dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

After a drive along the coast and nice walk in the park at Laguna Beach, we stopped at Las Brisas for a Sunday night meal. It was excellent, service was good, staff was pleasant and the view picturesque.

“Expensive Brunch, Sweet Champagne”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We have been going to Las Brisas for years enjoying the view, waitstaff, and food BUT we are NOT going back. The view, of course, has not changed but the restaurant has steadily increased the price of the Sunday brunch to the point that it is not worth it. And the champagne they are now serving is so sweet you just know it is a cheap vintage - for the price they are charging they should be serving a nice champagne. The service is excellent and the food was good. Apparently some of the staff have recommended lowering the price to management to no avail. Too bad and bye bye Las Brisas!

“Rip Off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Came for Sunday brunch....what a disappointment. The shrimp bisque tasted worse than can soup. The New York steak was so tough a fork could not even penetrate it. The waiter was great and thankfully there was good champagne to wash away the horrible taste of the food. I feel so ripped off @ $39.00 a person. The bathroom is disgusting and needs a makeover. Never again.

“Fish tacos + jalapeno margarita = happiness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This place has it all. Great food and drink, and a spectacular view from the outdoor patio. it's just gorgeous. i got the fish tacos, which were perfection, and a well made spicy jalapeno margarita. I had a taste of the tuna burger, YUM! The sushi was surprisingly good as well. If you are in Laguna, stop here for lunch! take in the view and fun atmosphere, and then take a walk on the beach.
