Splashes at Surf & Sand Resort
Awesome Spot in LagunaMy wife and I ate at Splash's this weekend for the 1st time and it was awesome. We had a beachfront seat at Sunset which was perfect. Food and drinks were great and the service was great. They were even able to charge my wife's phone as it died and we needed it to charge because we needed our sitter info. Great job Splash's you earned a loyal client!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for SeafoodI had not been to Splashes in several years and knew it would be a beautiful view but was pleasantly surprised by the great food. I shared the halibut and salmon entrees with a friend and both were flavorful and delicious. The broth on the salmon with forbidden rice was incredible. I will definitely be back soon.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view and excellent foodThis restaurant is right on the ocean allowing a fantastic of the surf. The food and service are quite good.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible, we loved it. TheIncredible, we loved it. The smell of the ocean as soon as the elevator door opened was so refreshing and inviting.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThey setup a great table withThey setup a great table with an awesome view. the service was outstanding especially for a packed Laguna Beach restaurant. Food was good, nothing special. However, the atmosphere and service make this a favorite Laguna restaurant.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome ocean view w/ good foodwe had a good dinner with great drinks and even better view; the service good have been better... the servers that brought food could never get it right of who ordered what and it just seemed unpolished overall- the quality of the food was very good however.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMocean viewMy co workers were here from back East and wanted to eat by the water.Splash was perfect! We sat on the lowest level outside" on the beach" but with heaters as it cooled down. The server wad excellent. The menu not huge but enough choices. The scallops were amazing. On the higher end by price, but the view makes up any difference.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprising FindSplashes is at the Surf & Sands Hotel. My wife and I enjoyed The Towers restaurant many years ago (before it closed) and decided to try Splashes, its replacement restaurant. The hotel itself is not the most eye-catching, and we didn't think much of the restaurant when we first entered.
However, to our surprise, the food was great. My wife and I ordered the ahi tartare for appetizer. For entrees I had the linguini with clams in a cream sauce, and my wife chose the scallops. Fantastic! Moreover, their bread with olive tampenade was addicting. The dress is casual (California beach style attire) and the restaurant is at beach level. You can see and hear the waves. We will be returning.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary LunchFood was amazing and service was great. Sat by the fireplace and had a view of the ocean. It was great!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic & a viewMy husband and I had a wonderful dinner celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We'd honeymooned at the Surf and Sand so it's a great place to go back to for us.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMViews to EnvySplashes Rest. is all about the view and then the food....The crashing waves and the sound of the surf are hard to beat!!! The staff is friendly and helpful and the chef is very accommodating with food issues. Our only complain is that we spent over $100 and then had to pay $6 p;us tip for valet parking....parking should be free when spending that much for dinner for two people!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDine as the waved come inSplashes is a wonderful restaurant right on the beach. Always ask for an outside table, it's great to watch the waves roll in. They have a very nice wine list that should statisfy everyone's likes. The menu is not extensive but all very good. This is a wonderful place for a romantic dinner.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, good foodWonderful location on the beach in Laguna. The food is very good, although they change the menu periodically and I miss some of the old menu items. I like their vegetarian Farro Risotto, but I would swear that the portion size has shrunk in the last six months.
The bar is small but is also a good spot for meeting friends, sharing appetizers, or even dining.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSeaside CelebrationMy wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our wedding anniversary dinner celebration at Splashes. The wine list is extensive, and it offered one of our very favorite and sometimes hard to find wines. Our appetizers and entrees of "Seared Ahi" and "Beef Tenderloin" were delicious and were prepared to our orders. Being able to see and hear the ocean waves breaking right outside our open window added to the romantic ambience of the comfortably decorated dining room. Splashes offers a very unique dining experience for those who would enjoy a seaside flaire to complement delicious meals and outstanding service. We will definitely plan to return soon.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular ViewSplashes has a spectacular view, the food and the service was amazing. Thank you for making our family reunion an amazing time.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than just food.....I jump at the opportunity to go to Splashes to enjoy the view, my libations and food. I would love it if the resto had more choices of dishes on their menu. Thank you, Splahses for giving our party of 8 the most enjoyable Saturday. Cheers!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't beat the view - food was outsThis is my "go to" restaurant for lunch when guests come in from out of town. Can't get much closer to the ocean, unless you're sitting on the beach. Food is always outstanding. Had some friends in from Oregon and they were thrilled with the ocean views and dolphin watching while dining. They also loved the food - Summer Menu: Mussels with vegetables- a lighter take on mussels meuniere ( use bread to soak up the delicious broth). We also had the new seafood salad with poached seafood which was light & refreshing. I enjoyed the Romaine salad with the add-on of grilled jumbo shrimp. Also Ahi sandwich was a hit.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded our expectationsWe asked for a window table and got one overlooking the ocean - beautiful! The food was outstanding and the service very attentive and efficient. It was a birthday celebration, and the restaurant gave us a complimentary dessert to share, which was also delicious. Would definitely go again when in Laguna Beach.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM92nd BirthdayI chose Splashes Restaurant to celebrate my grandmother's 92 Birthday. We went during the day, for lunch so she could see the ocean and walk to the sand. The restaurant has extremely easy access. We pulled up our car to Valet, walked to the elevator which took us directly to the restaurant. We had in an indoor table with direct view of the water. The service was outstanding.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for business orGreat spot for business or pleasure. Good food and service and a must for locals or visitors to California that want to eat by the ocean. Would also be a great place for a romantic dinner on a special occasion.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Rest. Ever!!Splashes has always been my favorite rest. The view & sound of the waves is beyond the best & the food amazing. Not only delicious but the presentation beautiful. Our waiter Mike..from Pa... where We are form was the best.
Thank you for making my birthday soooo very special.

Disappointed that I had specifically made a note in the reservation that we were celebrating my husband's birthday and they did nothing in response, but in fact brought the man at the very next table a birthday dessert with lit candle. Because of the that the rating was not as high as it could have been in service and overall.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, good food.Excellent service, good food. BV Cabernet Sav very good. Atmosphere beautiful. Perfect sunset. Be prepared to pay around $150 for two ( two glasses of wine).3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMABSOLUTE FAVORITE - GORGEOUS DAYAn absolute favorite. You never disappoint. Fell in love with the deep-fried brussel sprouts and added salmon. FIVE-STAR3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBrilliant experience!From beginning to end, our experience was superb. We arrived early as the weather was great and we wanted to spend some time at the bar before dining. The bar servoce was excellent. As soon as he discovered we had reservations, the bartender called dining reception and checked us in.
We had an outdoor view table, which was perfect. But when the sun set I got cold. Our waiter took note of our valet ticket info and within moments my wrap had been retrieved from our car.
The food and wine was excellent. Our waiter made terrific reecommendations. We weren't rushed, but he always materialized just as we needed him. This was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
