Great place!My wife and I thoroughly enjoy eating here. The food is some of the best seafood I've had anywhere. The service is top notch and the view is a great one of the pacific. My wife and I sat inside with a great window view, and that was fine. There is also great seating outside with heating. Get there early this place is popular. It was our anniversary and the waitress really treated us right.
The only downside is you may have to park a distance on the street following the coastal view if there parking is full, but it's a nice walk.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice overall but prices highI hadn't been to Las Brisas in years but decided to take some out of town guests there, mostly for the spectacular view. Even tho I had requested a window table with an ocean view, we were told that they can't be reserved and that there would be an add'l 30+ min wait for one. So we took the table in the middle of the room which was ok; there is still a decent view if you face the right way. Our wait staff was friendly and everyone seemed happy with their dishes. I was not impressed with the chocolate mousse cake but it was fair and the kids didn't mind. Overall it was a good experience but I had hoped for something more given the $30/entree prices. I also think they should update the decor. The entryway especially is not very impressive.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood view and Good food.My family often visit the restaurant for it's food and the view. We enjoy their Mexican influenced sea food and their bread. The service is good when it's not too busy. When the weather is nice, it's even more enjoyable to have brunch/lunch at the restaurant, you can see the ocean while you eat. After the meal, one can take a walk along the coast to take in the beautiful ocean view.
Parking is sometimes hard, even valet parking and street parking can get very full.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view to enjoyA classic Laguna Beach dining experience with a panoramic view of the ocean and beach. The food is above average but not exceptional. This is a fun spot to sit at the outside area and bar when the mariachi band is playing on Wednesday nights.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner here was fantastic.Our dinner here was fantastic. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining the menu and the specials offered the evening we were there. Service was prompt and timed just right. Our first visit here and we've been to many restaurants in the Laguna Beach area. We will be back!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Sunday Brunch!A 4 course menu that provided choices for all tastes plus they had 2 specials not on the regular menu. We were able to get a table at the window to enjoy the ocean view and do some people watching at the same time. Our server was outstanding and paced our brunch well. We. The food was well prepared and delicious. We will be back.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a very pleasant eveningI had a very pleasant evening here. We showed up 30 minutes early for our dinner reservation and we were still seated right away at a window table with a gorgeous view. Our server was attentive and helpful. We had the spicy tuna nachos appetizer, which the server explained to us were not actually nachos, but four large chips topped with seared tuna and avocado. Pricy, but delicious. I had the pasta de mariscos, which came with scallops, shrimp, crab and salmon. My date had the seafood enchiladas, which were stuffed with Hawaiian ono (the catch of the day) and shrimp. I enjoyed both dishes. My favorite part of dinner was our dessert- the mixed berry "tostada," which was a shell consisting of sliced almonds held together with honey.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMScenic view.Fantastic View, introduced a friend for the first time, and now wanting to come with all his family.

Thank you!!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful scene!
wonderful restaurant !6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food & Awesome LocationI was there with my wife and daughter on a Saturday evening; we had Ahi Poke Tower for appetizer, ladies ordered Salmon a la Parilla, I had Halibut Tomatillo, and we shared the dessert which was fresh fruits on an ice cream in a nutty granola waffle cup. Everything was freshly prepared, and tasted excellent. All the staff that we interacted with were friendly and cordial.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Perfect Light LunchWe were seated quickly and our table was situated where we had a beautiful full view of the ocean. It's often difficult to find good menu choices when you are dieting, but there were many healthy and light options on their regular lunch menu. Our choices were: Seafood salad - A photo of this salad is featured on their website and it is every bit at good as it looks. Also, Spicy Tuna Nachos - This was an appetizer, but it was perfectly sized for a light lunch. Each tortilla chip (4) was stacked with King crab, ahi sushi and avocado, with sweet & spicy aioli sauce. This dish was one of the best things I've ever eaten. The service was excellent, and all in all it made for a delicious and memorable meal.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!This restaraunt is nothing less than amazing. The entire Pacific Ocean is sitting in front of you while dining. The food is excellent and the service is superb. The menu however consists mainly of seafood but there are fabulous salads with chicken that one can choose from. It's definately a treat to spend time with a friend having lunch at Las Brisas.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect SaladWe had wanted to go to Las Brisas for quite awhile. We finally had the opportunity the other day and had an absolutely terrific lunch. I had the Grilled Chicken taco salad and it was one of the best salads ever. The view of Laguna Beach is gorgeous and I would recommend it to any in the Laguna area.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLas Brisas is always delicious.Las Brisas is always delicious. The new crab cake recipe was excellent, Alaskan Halibut, perfectly cooked moist, melt in your mouth. The Sole with the crab and avocado is one of my personal favorites.

We ate indoors, but the view was amazing. This was a great dining experience. Most definitely worth the drive to Laguna Beach!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA Favorite RediscoveredHadn't been to Las Brisas in many years, but so glad we returned with friends. Laguna Beach is postcard perfect, and so is Las Brisas. You really need a reservation on the weekend, but in spite of the crowd we never felt rushed. We ordered guacamole/chips as a starter - mmm! My salad was excellent and beautiful to look at too. Crab claws, shrimp, lobster medallions, and Ahi (I ordered it well done) artistically presented with asparagus, hearts of palm and the most beautiful greens imagineable. With a pomegranite margarita, I was in heaven. Others in the party were equally happy with their choices. We shared desserts too. We had a window table, to make things extra special. The bill was pretty high (over $50/person), but worth it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, and fantasticGreat location, and fantastic food. We were there for a celebration dinner and the staff was fantastic. Definitely would recommend this to friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMunostentatious gemBreathtaking ocean and shoreline view in Laguna Beach with excellent seafood.

It was very good... good price and scenic view... !!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Night OutWe went out for our anniversary and we're not disappointed. It started with excellent service from Mike and continued on with the incredible fish dishes and ended with a fabulous dessert.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect! our waitress wasPerfect! our waitress was the best! checked in on us regularly cant ask for more5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWindow tableWe were fortunate enough to have a nice window table in a corner where it was quiet. It does have a tendency to become loud, as it will accommodate large groups. The food has remained the same since I was last there 25 years ago..........very good. We felt the Mexican dishes should have included more popular entrées like chili rellanos. Over all it was a nice experience and will return on a nice sunny day! The guacamole and chips were exceptional.
PS You may not request window tables until after your arrival.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMStunning viewsNot only was the food delicious, the views were gorgeous! Loved it and will come back again and again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location!Beautiful views from up on a bluff. Food was good, just a little pricey.

We wanted a good brunch and an ocean view in Laguna and we got it. We were greeted and seated promptly for our 10AM reservation made through Open Table (first time using). Our server, Sergio was dedicated, attentive and friendly. The food was presented nicely and quite tasty. And the Champagne flowed freely! If you have never tried Las Brisas before, don't let the entry area cause alarm. (It did for me) Once you are seated in the dining area that first impression disappears. Best impression? The servers were all old school professional, real waitstaff. Of course there is that beautiful coastline view.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful location and viewBeautiful location and view of the Pacific ocean. The food was very good and the service was great. We had an early reservation, 5pm, and we were almost the only ones in the restaurant so the atmosphere was quiet but it got busy before we left. The staff were all very kind and friendly. We had a good time and would recommend it to anyone.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view of the ocean wasThe view of the ocean was beautiful, and the manicured grounds were very impressive!

We watches the sun melt into the Pacific as we dined on succulent lobster, crab and seafood. Others in our party had the enchiladas and salmon. The food was cooked perfectly the sauces were delicate, tasty and a perfect compliment to the meal. Order the frita del mar it was delicious. Drinks were strong do you only need one!

More than anything Las Brisas gave us the perfect setting to create a wonderful memory!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice!!!I haven't been to Las Brisas in over 25 years and I now live in Texas. I frequent CA often and decided that I should take my wife there on a date. It was amazing! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We will definitely go again but next time during brunch. We could both see how amazing the view would be during the day.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMRegular customerOverall great restaurant!

I wish they would honor the skymile points on weekends..4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIconic Dining ExperienceA big fan of this iconic experience. Be patient and make sure you get a window table as the views are some of the best in SC! Service is excellent and friendly and very attentive even though always very crowded (what does that tell you). The food is very good but the experience is better. Enjoy!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLas Brisas has always beenLas Brisas has always been one of my favorite restaurants in all of Southern California.

EXPENSIVE MENU.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionsWe go to Las Brisas for special occasions, this was to celebrate my daughter getting engaged, plus she was just accepted to a Master's degree program, her fiance got a new job and it was my Mom's wedding anniversary.
There were the 5 of us and they sat us in this little alcove which was really nice. Great views, private and less noise.
Not sure if they even have a wine list. We asked for a Chardonnay and they brought a Clos de Bois which certainly did the job, but normally the server should bring a wine list.
The server forgot to serve the chocolate mousse that I saw on the bill, but I reminded him and he went and got it.
Overall, the server was attentive and did a good job.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for view. food was ok.great for view. food was ok. not a place for children under 15.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the top restaurantsOne of the top restaurants on our vacation.

The view can´t be beat and the food is really delicious. Service is tip-top. I book reservations 2x a year at Las Brisas, it´s worth the 1.5 hour drive to get there and the beach walk and tide pools are great to visit afterwards.
