The Marine Room
Every seat in this critically acclaimed restaurant has an ocean view, and during high tide the waves actually splash against the windows. This is certainly a special occasion sort of place, so come ready to celebrate.
Opened in 1941, this La Jolla restaurant has become a fine dining institution for its oceanside views and high-caliber menus. Chef Mike Minor helms the kitchen, emphasizing sustainable seafood, responsible sourcing, and seasonality across the board, regularly rotating out menu items to reflect the region’s best finds. Book in the main dining room for a classic experience, with pristine plates like Baja California swordfish or Pacifico seabass, or snag seats in the recently reimagined lounge for a medley of globally inspired small plates, such as jamón Ibérico toast, Moroccan lamb lollipops, and Japanese A5 nigiri. Regardless of where you reserve, you can look forward to the unbeatable oceanfront sunset views.
