We sat outside just before sunset. It was beautiful, and they do not rely on their view to fill tables. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and filet mignon. Superb. Not to be missed if you find yourself in Laguna Beach.....it's an icon of the area. Great service too!

We made a reservation for 5:15 on a Saturday. We arrived at 5:00. Their website states you can ask for a window view when you arrive. I would definitely recommend the window view. The food was good. The Ceviche was excellent. I had the Filet Mignon. It was very tender and large but lacked flavor. Overall a good experience.

Great views of the coast and ocean! It has a welcoming atmosphere. They don't take reservations except for large parties so be prepared to wait. Food is no consistent and overpriced...so are cocktails. Staff is very friendly and efficient.

This has been our "go to" place for lunch on the patio, but this time we went for dinner sitting inside. This is a seriously good dinner venue. My wife had the halibut, which she proclaimed "best halibut I've had" and I had Snapper Veracruziana, an old favorite and as good as ever. Prices are a bit higher at dinner,... More

Location, location, location is all i can say about this place. Food is a disappointment, definitely time for a facelift (hasn't changed in 30+ years) and drinks are ok. We ate here for a birthday party and the views were amazing but NO A/C (if there is ac you definitely can't feel it) and the windows don't open so beware... More

Our second trip to Las Brisas in the Hesler Park area of Laguna Beach did not disappoint. The Seafood appetizer was a work of art. Pictured here is the HALF order. Amazing! We loved our orders of fish tacos and filet mignon tacos, both with wonderful tater tots that tasted more like potato cakes in a tot shape. Yummy! Gorgeous... More

Full disclosure. I am a local. They call us 'Lagunatics' so be forewarned. This restaurant has the unique distinction of having the supreme, best, most photographed view of our beautiful Laguna Beach. 5 Star +++. Their food is good. Their Sunday Brunch is excellent. Their Margarita's which are the most logical drink are...in my opinion...mixed for the tourist. Think expensive...and... More

There are lots of great restaurants in Laguna Beach, but with out a doubt, the best for both food,service and view is Las Brisas! Ask for a "view" table and get the most spectacular view of Laguna Beach possible.
