Description: Dining at Cusp is a treat for your senses. Enjoy coastal Mediterranean fare with an emphasis on fresh seafood like grilled salmon crusted in Moroccan spices or albacore roasted to perfection. Rustic flatbreads from our pizza oven and savory sides compliment our fresh pastas and entrées. Try our ocean-fresh ceviche or raw bar while sipping a cocktail made with our housemade infused spirits and fresh juices. Savor Chef Ingrid's flavorful dishes, chat with friends, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific from our 11th floor dining room. Not just for special occasions (but perfect for that, too), Cusp is your neighborhood spot. Stylish and relaxed, Cusp is the place to chill out with your friends while enjoying craft cocktails and creative cuisine-the stellar view is on the house. Daily Happy Hour from 4-7.

I visited Cusp with my husband in March for dinner one evening while we were on vacation and it was excellent! The view alone is worth visiting this resturant. It's on the 13th floor of the Hotel La Jolla with a view of the city lights up on the hill and the ocean out in front. The food and service were both excellent!!! I had a pasta dish and my husband had the lamb burger, which was a suggestion from our waitress. He said the burger was great and my pasta was very yummy. I have heard they have great cocktails but I'm pregnant so I only got a non-alcholic drink which was great though. I would highly recommend this resturant and would love to go back sometime when in the area.

The view is awesome and very romantic. Great for a girls get together or a date. Even good if you just want to be alone and enjoy a great view. I loved it.

We loved Cusp! The bartenders were so dedicated to phenomenal cocktails, an outstanding experience and quality. Loved the food we had the gnocchi which was super fresh and clearly homemade and the seabass. There was nothing fishy, oily and the flavors were amazing. We cant say enough about the food, staff and craft cocktails... Cant wait to come visit again!

Very attentive staff, excellent food, split salad and entrée and still had food left over. Few of the
Ocean, unfortunately we were there after dark. Well worth the visit, they validate for parking as we had a couple join us who drove from afar and they appreciated the free parking.
