  • "Great experience! Made our anniversary special. Food, service - perfect!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The best view restaurant in Orange County. Usually a restaurant with this view skimp on quality of food, not this one. Las brisas is top quality in all areas. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "We made a last minute reservation at the Las Brisas on a Saturday. We decided on it because of the great location, ocean view, and 6:00 p.m. availability. Also it was my husband’s birthday, and he loves Mexican seafood. We were surprised at the elegant atmosphere and great view from our table. We continued to be impressed with our waiter - Matt. He was attentive, funny, and anticipated all of our needs. The food was also outstanding. We had the guacamole appetizer (large order & not too spicy), halibut (define), chicken tamale, and seafood enchilada. I highly recommend Las Brisas!"

  • "The restaurant needs to be updated/upgraded. The carpet was stained and stretched out. There were lots of flies buzzing around. Food was just ok for the price and service was slow."

  • "Food, service and view were outstanding. Unfortunately there was a very large (25) group seated in the same area and the noise was too much - not crude or raucous, just loud."

    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Stopped in twice for drinks and to share some small plates, and everything was excellent. Can't beat the view! and their guacamole is outstanding. Also enjoyed the prawn (huge!) cocktail, rainbow roll and tuna tartare. Caesar was good, not great, but very fresh! We will definitely have dinner there next time we're in town."

  • "I have had brunch before and it was better. We got to the restaurant on time at 9:00. The food was warmish.....like it had been sitting there for awhile. The eggs Benedict were hard and cool to the touch. I order juice and it never came.......except on the bill. We have been here before and it was amazing. I think we will skip Las Brisas for awhile."

  • "Went there Sunday Afternoon at 2:30pm and they only had a Fixed brunch menu with pretty good selections. However could not order off regular menu A very nice view as always and acceptably quick service. Very close to everything but their parking lot was completely full making me park down the street for $20"

  • "It was a special occasion for my parents with their friends so I made a reservation for them. When they arrived, the front desk told them that it was not reserved under my name. I had the confirmation number but still it was not in their system. Such a bummer! Granted they found a seat for my parents and their friends quickly but it was so disappointing. I've been in this restaurant for so many times for so many years. Never had this problem before. Hopefully, next time I won't have this issue."

  • "The view served to frame a memorable picture of the evening for out-of-town guests. Appreciated that our table seating matched our request and reservation time without delay. From 1st approach, our server was attentive and served to elevate the experience for our guests. You come to Las Brisas for the view and hope the experience of your guests exceeds the surroundings (and price)........on Monday all good! Thank you"

  • "It had been quite awhile since I had dined at Las Brisas. I brought several people, 5, who had never been there. The food is overpriced for the quality and quantity. The presentation is great but the food, itself, left a lot to be desired. Several people were surprised at how expensive things were, and how there were few options of cheaper choices."

  • "Took my mother there for her 85th birthday lunch and we all loved it. Servers very kind and efficient. Fabulous view. Food very good as well. Couldn't have been better!"

  • "Dinner on Sunday night was a completely different experience than lunch I had 12 years ago. Because of my first experience, I did not want to go back to Las Brisas. Sunday night I was extremely impressed from the hosts to servers to the management. We requested a window seat and it was simply perfect as we had timed it for the setting sun. Lovely table settings, comfortable chairs and the menu options were a true delight to choose from. Guacamole was the best I've ever had in my life (truly). I ordered the Frutas del Mar and it was fabulous! My mother is the ultimate picky eater and she as been dining at Las Brisas almost every other week. All in all probably the nicest family dinner we've ever had."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Sunday Brunch for $40 is a little pricey but it is worth it every now and then. I recommend for all."

  • "Beautiful view and great food. Had a wonderful dinner. Frutas Delmar and Strawberry tostada was awesome."

  • "Sat outdoors in the afternoon before attending the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. Sea bass was outstanding. We were able to leave our car at Las Brisas and walk over to the Pageant and walk back afterwards. Great, great, great from every perspective!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Las Brisas has one of the iconic views of the Laguna coast, and the view alone is worth a visit. At a recent dinner the service was excellent. However the food itself wasn't as good as it's been in the past - one dish was undercooked, and a Mexican seafood dish was decent but nothing exceptional. Serious foodies should go elsewhere, but if you want the most romantic setting in Laguna, go to Las Brisas."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Great view overlooking Laguna Beach and the ocean."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The scenery is beautiful and I go back because of it. The brunch was good. This was definitely not my first visit and will not be my last. We had a very good waitress and she helped make our brunch nice. I am especially pleased that we had a window table as I had requested!!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The view is breathtaking. The food is ok. We had many different things as e were a party of eight. We had a great time as the company was wonderful. The food was pretty good but surely not over the top The view makes up for it."

  • "Food was fantastic, Our waiter Ryan was the best with his service, and meal suggestions, the whole experience Was a 10"

  • "Made a reservation, we did have a 5 to 10 minute wait. We requested a table with a view, the table was perfect. The staff was kind and attentive, when they were available. It did appear to be understaffed. The food was good, but it was cold when it was served. I believe the shortage of staff resulted in the mishaps. I will return. Great Guacamole!"

  • "This was my first visit to Las Brisas and we had a great evening. Service was outstanding and attentive. As many have noted, the food is priced for the right to enjoy the incredible view more so than for the quality of the food itself. The food was fine, don't get me wrong, just not worthy of the prices without the view. We sat in the front dining room and still had a beautiful view of Laguna and the sunset. The temperature in the dining room was quite chilly and we wished we had sweaters so consider dressing for that. We saw several customers relocate in search of warmer tables. All in all, a fun, memorable evening. I'll be back if ever in the area again."

  • "We were a family group for lunch. We were given a lovely mirrored room that felt private. Our server did an outstanding job arranging pasta for a toddler and keeping all of us happy. Everyone thought their meals excellent as well--mahe mahe, salmon, seafood salad, gazpacho, and tamale/enchilada combo."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We had a window seat with a great view. Unfortunately, our food was below our expectations. Our service was fair. Our waiter did not offer us information on the restsurant "special", yet did so to the next table seated. The food was simply disappointing; we would have been equally pleased eating fish and chips on the bench outside."

  • "There were 5 of us who went to Las Brisas for dinner. Jose, the bartender, makes an awesome margarita! If there is a table available on the patio you can seat yourself (first come - first serve). We found an outside table and the view was incredible. The service was outstanding! The food choices were many and all of our meals waranted 5-stars! I had the red snapper and it was so very very good. The prices are very reasonable, too. It was a memorable dining experience. All of my friends enjoyed their meals, too ..... A LOT! We shared a dessert (almond cup with ice cream) and what a treat that was. This restaurant is a must when visiting Laguna Beach!"
