Fodor's Review

It’s hard to dine closer to the Pacific than here at this venerable La Jolla Shores mainstay. Two-story-tall windows capture beachgoers, kayakers, snorkelers, and swooping gulls. If the tide is high, waves race across the sand and crash against the glass. Longtime executive chef Bernard Guillas easily distracts patrons from the sea show with a fine-dining menu that’s seasonally fresh, internationally sophisticated, and deliciously playful. A prawn cocktail is served with tabbouleh, crusted ahi with avocado beignets, and lobster with bourbon vanilla butter. Afternoon happy hours in the lounge every day but Saturday are a comfortable way to sample the atmosphere and gourmet fare without breaking the bank.
