Fantastic meal and view. Service was excellent. Had a table for 6-a bit tight, best to request the private alcove table!

The breakfast buffet is excellent with a little bit of everything. Be sure and check out the cinnamon raisin French toast, omelets, and yogurt parfaits.

The remodel is beautiful. The menu changed since we came last and I really missed the Mexican food . It’s more like a steak house now . Had the guacamole it was amazing . My husbands salad was over priced and ok . My steak was yummy . It’s a lovely beautiful place however a drunk woman ran me over on the way to the bathroom which was annoying .

The Salmon and the Filet Mignon was terrific. We shared the Chocolate Mousse cake. Excellent! I found out from the chef that everything is made fresh.

Cute place, everyone is very authentic about the food, good Italian food, service very good, restaurant was not crowded but it was Sunday night at 7.30, restaurant is hard to fine and part of the monument light is out which makes for a bad impression when you first drive up but the food was good , good wine. We enjoyed ourselves .

Overall good and I’d recommend. We went for Sunday Brunch so naturally very packed. Our server was pleasant enough but he seemed slammed. More servers needed for sure

1. Waiting period for the seats was too long even after the reservation was made on the phone.
2. Bathroom was dirty!
3. Waiting period for the foods to come was too long.
4. The waitresses were too busy and they left you alone.

The food was generally good, but certainly not worth the extremely high prices charged. The soup was served less than lukewarm and we had to send it back. The service was slow, but it was a busy Saturday evening. The noise level of the full restaurant was just too loud at times for us to have a normal-level conversation. As a local, on this visit, I regret taking my out-of-town guests to Las Brisas. Overall, it should have felt like a much more special experience.

So we were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and I chose this amazing restaurant to mark this occasion which turned out to be great decision.

Vince and Mathew defined service on a new level for us. The food was superb, my fiancée got a customized meal because she’s a vegan which is super delicious. I’ll never forget the calamari that I had that night plus the chicken mole. Thanks Vince and Matthew...

Had to send my dinner back for being over cooked. At these prices, this is unacceptable.
Nice view but room was too loud to carry on a conversation.

So impressed with the makeover! I’ve been coming to Las Brisas for over 30 years and the new modern look and feel is by far the best. Great new modern bar inside but the same casual beach bar outside. Still one of the best views in Laguna too. The appetizer ahi tacos were amazing! Plenty big for a lunch. I have to also comment on the new management as well. Perfection!!!

The new decor is invigorating, and the thoughtfully developed new menu is superb. Servers and host are attentive and anticipate your needs. Las Brisas has been a favorite anniversary meal destination for many years. We now live in Laguna Beach again and still love to eat here several times a year.

The restaurant was wonderful. I brought a party of six, we were seated as soon as all guests in our party arrived. Our waiter was attentive and prompt with all of our orders. The Pearl margarita was amazing as was the oyster appetizer.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I was expecting a menu corresponding to the “the flavors of Mexico’s West Coast”. The food was good, but it was plain Jane American, and pricey at that. Nothing special about the seafood either. The margaritas were good, but again nothing special and way overpriced. The view of the ocean/beach/sunset is fabulous, as is the service by the wait staff. But just to warn you, the outside seating is first come, first servers. No reservations outside. It would be professional if they would mention that on their website or if Open Table would mention that when you make a reservation.

A perfect afternoon! We never tire of Las Brisas. Food, service, view - exceptional. Our server, Kateryna, was outstanding. Our three meals consisted of salad, seafood entree and choices from the trio options. Everyone was beyond satisfied. Enjoy the view from the restaurant and, after you dine, stroll along the path to enjoy it some more!

Oscar the server provided excellent top notch service.. One of the best waiters I have come across in a long time. The seafood enchiladas were hard and crusty. My wife's fish was over cooked and dry. For the best fish meal we continue to believe Nick's in Laguna Beach provides the best quality food. We have never been disappointed at Nick's.

I loved dining here! I’ve been wanting to go for a while so I figured going for Valentine’s Day would be perfect! The setting is wonderful, right by the beach in Laguna, so romantic! The food was delicious we had the filet mignon with lobster and the lobster bisque, truly a memorable experience!

This restaurant is especially great for significant occasions, but is also excellent for those who appreciate fine dining. The location, overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Laguna Beach, makes for a truly exceptional dining experience. The seafood offerings are outstanding, but there is something on the menu anyone who enjoys good food.

If Gourmet Mexican is what you're after, please try the "Las Brisas " Restaurant on Cliff Drive in Laguna Beach. The food is amazing in it's preparation and the staff is very welcoming. It sits on a cliff so that the ocean view from a window table in the main dining room is recommended.
