“A delightful evening from start to finish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

This was one go the loveliest dinners we have had on our month long California trip! The view can't be beat....and is quite exciting and mesmerizing watching the waves crashing against the windows. Although the menu required some explanations, our server was charming and informative and accurately described the dishes we chose to order, all of which were delicious! We liked the ambience.....most folks were "dressed appropriately" and had come to enjoy fine dining. We had the lobster tail and filet entrees and were thrilled with our choices, which included PLENTY of food! We old DEFINATELY recommend this restaurant for a special evening!

“Not fine dining”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

When the restaurant has bus loads of diners or restricted seating due to the main dining area being use for private parties, they should close to the public for fine dining. We stayed at their hotel, had a reservation for a month and walked into the noisiest setting possible. We left and luckily found Tapinade nearby for a great meal of fine dining. Marine Room is over rated. Tapinade far better

“Best View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I really wanted a restaurant with a view of the ocean. This place with its romantic vibe and fabulous huge windows that look out onto the illuminated ocean waves, even in the late evening is perfect. Food is rich. Drinks fab.

I'm currently in a wheelchair. The wait staff scrambled to make me comfortable and turn my temporary problem into a positive experience. The food was out of this world! View of course to die for. Thank you!

“Consistently incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

How can you beat waves crashing against the shore and the windows of a restaurant, incredible food and fantastic service? That's the Marine Room - actually in the town of La Jolla - a short drive from San Diego. I've been to the Marine Room several times - but this time was a couple of days after a full moon - so the high tide really put on a show. I started with the corn bisque soup followed by an incredible halibut entry. The restaurant somehow manages to be elegant and casual at the same time. The parking attendants, host, bartender, bus boys, wait staff ...... are all very customer oriented and friendly. Yes, for all this - and for the fantastic food - you pay a little more - but it's definitely worth it!
