Description: Legendary Las Brisas has been southern California's definitive place to enjoy fantastic and resplendent coastal views. The menu at Las Brisas brims with the authentic cuisine of the Mexican Riviera and is filled with recipes discovered along the 3000 miles of Mexico's coast. The stunning setting makes Las Brisas the perfect venue for a host of events and their renowned Sunday Brunch is the premier way to unwind and take in a gorgeous day. Come and enjoy our newly renovated Seaside Cantina. It features a refrigerated wine room, tequila wall, 65-foot Koa wood bar and a completely re-imagined cocktail menu. Join us for live music every Wednesday - Saturday from 6:30 PM-10:00 PM.

We dined here with friends and loved both the views and the food. The service was good too and we were seated 15 minutes earlier than our reservation which was nice. It was an expensive meal but felt worth it because the food was just that delicious!

The food is AMAZING. It is a bit pricy but the food, drinks, atmosphere, and view make it incredible. The outdoor seating area overlooks Laguna Beach and has a firepit and a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This place is great - all the way around. HIGHLY reccommend. For seafood and/or Mexican food lovers, this is a must.

Our best meal in Laguna/Newport Beach was at Las Brisas. The service and food were very good. They serve a mixture of mexican dishes and fresh fish dishes and both a re great. While the service and food are very good, the view is exceptional. Almost all their indoor tables have a view of the pacifc ocean. They also have patio seating which is on a first come first serve basis. The patio or any of the indoor tables have a great view of the sunset.

We went to Las Brisas for Sunday Brunch. Four course brunch for $39, but be advised that the first 2 courses are a small plate of fruit and a salad or soup. I had the Huevos Rancheros from their brunch menu and it was delicious! The price includes champagne and coffee or tea. I also ordered a Jalapeño Margarita and it was very good. Very good service from all of the staff. If you have the time to wait, ask for a table by a window, you'll be glad you did.

We recently celebrated a 22nd birthday, an 84th birthday, and a 33rd anniversary here. We come here on special occasions because we know that we will have a great meal here to accompany an incredible view. Ditto for when friends or relatives visit from out of the area!
I really can't speak for most of the menu because we always order one of the specials of the day. This time it was blackened swordfish with a scallop garnish in a lemon butter sauce, and it was the best swordfish dish I've ever had (and I've had quite a few). At $35 per plate (including seasonal fresh veggies and fingerling potatoes), it's not cheap, but worth every penny. You don't need a salad, especially if you want to save room for the chocolate-covered strawberries injected with liqueur; yum!
All three generations of family we take here love it, locals and out-of-staters alike.
You have to wait for a window table even with a reservation, but it's well worth the wait; we just plan that into our reservation timing.
