    Seemed short staffed. Waited to be seated. Once seated, we waited 5-10 min before someone came to offer water. We quickly asked them to take our order since we were in a hurry. Took a while to get the bill. Was celebrating a birthday which was noted on the reservation and when we paid with our LandrySelect birthday reward and was never offered birthday mud pie.

    Took my future sister in law here to talk all things wedding and the whole afternoon was perfect! This place is beautiful and the food is the only thing better than the ambiance. I had the kale salad (SO GOOD) and the Sunchaser cocktail on our last waitresses recommendation and both were delicious! The whole aesthetic of the place made it perfect for such a happy occasion and we just had the best time!

    I do a lot of home cooking because most restaurant food is boring. And then there’s my Herb & Sea, where every bite is virtually an orgasmic playground. If I didn’t cook, if I lived in or near Encinitas, I’d dine at Herb & Sea nightly.
