First off what an amazing view. You really can't beat it! It feels like you are right on the beach as the sand is steps away. The restaurant is decorated beautifully. We all ordered the surf and turf and it was great.

This restaurant is excellent. Positioned directly on the beach in La Jolla. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food delicious with interesting and fresh menu items. The service is top notch. It is expensive so be prepared but we felt worth the price!
