Dining at Cusp is a treat for your senses. Enjoy coastal fare with an emphasis on fresh seafood like Scottish Salmon or Lamb roasted to perfection. Rustic flatbreads from our pizza oven and savory sides compliment our fresh pastas and entrées. Savor Chef Ingrid’s flavorful dishes, chat with friends, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific from our 11th floor dining room.

Enjoy the view, while sipping a custom craft cocktail made with our housemade infused spirits and fresh juices.

Not just for special occasions (but perfect for that, too), Cusp is your neighborhood spot. Stylish and relaxed, Cusp is the place to chill out with your friends while enjoying craft cocktails and creative cuisine—the stellar view is on the house.

We decided to go here for Valentine's Day, and it was a very enjoyable experience. The ambience is great, the view is amazing, and the food and service is superb.

My SO and I went here for Valentine's Day and loved it! Our reservation was for a little before sunset, so we lingered over drinks at our table. The service was absolutely wonderful, and we were taken care of by the wonderfully sweet Josie (even through the Valentine's rush, she was cool and collected). Overall, we enjoyed Cusp, and will definitely be back!

All in all was o.k. but disappointing compared to the expectations we had after reading the great reviews. Table was dirty with candle wax. lunch menu not leaving many options and "flatbread with cheese" is a fancy way of just saying a pizza. Waiter said he would check in the kitchen about a dish we asked about but never came back. Waiters carrying jugs and misc. stuff from the storage to the kitchen via the seating area throughout all of lunch which was a bit disturbing. Had problem finding a reservation for lunch through Opentable but once we got there we were the only ones in the restaurant the whole meal. The big plus are the views to La Jolla.

Beautiful setting. Great Food and Great Service
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and it was a very easy place to converse.
We will be returning for Happy Hour to watch the sunrise later in the season when the sun sets more in the center of their view.

Fantastic experience! The decor and ambiance was gorgeous. The service from valet to bartender to waiter was phenomenal. The view is amazing. And best of all, the food was incredible. We had the beet and rocket salad, the crab tostada, the sea bass and salmon entrees....omg!

The service, as usual, was impeccable. Wait stuff is very professional and personal. The food is outstanding and so is the view of La Jolla shores.

Went to see the sunset as it's on the 11th floor of the hotel. You get a great view of La Jolla Shore and Bird Rock with the sun setting as you dine. The bartender (Mark) is usually the one there when we go and he's never disappointed. I'm picky about old fashions but he always delivers. Happy hour is also solid for what you get in views. Depending on what you buy your meal can be very expensive or not too bad. My wife and I like to go there several times a year for a nice and quiet sit down dinner.

We came with another couple and enjoyed a cozy booth overlooking the city lights. The food was outstanding! Fresh local seafood and presentation was very attractive. We enjoyed the scallops, foamy lobster seafood risotto, fresh catch of the day and roasted brussel sprouts with an egg. Everything was delicious and our waiter Steve was very professional and knowledgeable. This is a hidden gem. We will be back!

Location and view were superb. Server very friendly and informative - food choices , wines, desert - attentive but not overly so.
The presentation, flavouring and sides were all excellent !

View of La Jolla , ocean and hillside homes worth it even without the great food and drink

Food was delicious, service top notch. Ask for Stephen. Although you miss the ocean view at night, the twinkling lights of La Jolla are beautiful.
