The Shores Restaurant - La Jolla Shores Hotel
Hidden GemThe Shores Restaurant is an old-school gem! Fabulous location. Don't tell anyone... keep it our secret.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Mother's Day!Wonderful service! We had a group of 11 with a 5 year old in a full leg cast! No problem! The food for brunch was delicious, varied and well presented. We loved the pate, sea bass and the unusual salads. There was also a table just for kids. The serving area was roomy and provided plenty of room for all diners. We will be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM"The Shores" Buffet on Mother's DayThe price was OK for a Mother's Day Buffet. The buffet was scheduled from 11AM to 7PM and we arrived in at 5PM. The salad buffet was great and had many fresh delicous items. However, the entree buffet line suffered from many very over-tired items. The broccoli looked as if it had been there since the buffet started. The bread was stale and hard. There was no bacon in the bacon/sausage bin. After 6PM, we observed the staff renew some of the buffet items. Dessert serlection was great, but when I went back to the peach cobbler, it had been removed (it was a featured item).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day brunch was alrightThe food was okay, but definitely not worth the price.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular view and tasty foodWe had a great meal watching the sunset; then had a drink in the bar.

We arrived at 1:25 and were promptly seated at a table with a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. A server was there immediately to explain the brunch and take our drink orders. She returned occasionally to see if we needed anything and was very prompt. I've lived in S.D. all my life (54yrs!) and had never been here before.

New menu: cauliflower soup was excellent, as were mussels frites, and pear salad.1/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNot just hotel food, but theNot just hotel food, but the food was inconsistent. Fish of the day dish was amazing and richly flavorful! My wife's sirloin was overlooked, and my daughter's chicken was leathery. Spectacular views and great service. The fish was worthy of 5 stars; the sirloin: 4. But that chicken was no more than 2.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
