The view from all areas of the dining room is gorgeous. The outdoor patio is nice but extremely popular so finding a table is difficult. It would be helpful if management could create a waiting list for the outdoor seating so patrons didn't have to circle like vultures waiting for someone to leave. It is somewhat humiliating for everyone involved and certainly detracts from the otherwise lovely ambience.
I am never disappointed in the menu options and I can't recall having a less than wonderful meal. I highly recommend the guacamole and chips to go along with a well crafted margarita!

I originally made a reservation due to thinking that it would be an extremely long wait for Sunday Brunch. We showed up at 11 for our meal and were immediately seated indoors. It was gorgeous inside, and much to our surprise Sunday Brunch was a 4 course pre-fix menu. This was not explained to me when I made the reservation, and it was out of our price range at $54 a person. There was also not an option to order anything a la carte, something that would have been easier for us and not so much food! After struggling to justify the price and the amount of food, we decided that maybe something more simple would be better for our meal. We then asked to move to the patio, where there was a regular lunch menu we could order off of, while still being able to order mimosas! We ordered the ceviche and mimosas and sat on the beautiful patio enjoying the ocean view. While we didn't get the brunch we had originally planned, we left feeling well taken care of by our waitress and happy with our time there. We definitely want to come back soon for the full brunch experience inside!

My husband and I went here for Sunday brunch. We will not be going back here for any reason. The food was terrible, cold and over priced. The service was alright, but nothing spectacular. I've had meals at Denny's that were better quality. Take your money to Raya at the Ritz Carlton. It's less expensive and the food is way better.

The table that we were sat had an amazing view of Laguna beach . It was such a beautiful day so it made it that much more enjoyable. Our server was great and he explained the specials for the day . Margaritas was amazing
And so were the chips and guacamole. My ahi tacos though I’d prefer to have a regular corn tortilla rather than putting it in this fancy hard shell. Overall I enjoyed my meal and would come back here again.

Host were great, immediately seated us but forgot my request for high chair. Our waiter was decent but distracted took our food order but didn't ask if we wanted drinks. Seemed like the manager was keeping a close eye on the area we were seated at (not sure if it was due to the servers or our party). Finally received a high chair after my 3rd request. Food was delicious and our party enjoyed the overall experience and location.

We met a few friends out of town for breakfast at Las Brisas. It was the first time for all of us and we loved it! They sat us inside by a window with a beautiful view of the ocean! The breakfast bar had so many delicious options. The omelette was made fresh right in front of you by a chef. All you had to do was pick what you wanted. The waffles, the parfaits, the fruit, the French toast.... 😍 it was all so good! My husband and I will definitely be revisiting this place in the near future!

We have recommended Las Brises for years and I always ordered the Sole..Was I disappointed to learn that it was no longer offered. It was replaced with a $20 hamburger covered with basically raw egg. which was served with a few fried potatoes.

It has been a while since I dined here but I found the menu MUCH different and much smaller. I was frankly a little disappointed in the menu.

The location is fantastic. The view is fantastic. The service was very, very good. The menu was just average which doesn't match the rest of the location.

I suggest a broader menu with more options.

Regardless, I enjoyed what I did eat but at the moment, would not go back as the draw of the menu in the past is what brought me back.

The view is always spectacular, how can it not be with an ocean view. The patio aaas lively when we arrived for an early (6:30) seating. The dinning area filled up by the time we left. Most of the meals were exceptional. One Filet was a bit overdone. My Cioppino was outstanding as a seafood dish. Nice offering of wines and cocktails. Service was fair. Our waiter appeared a bit distracted that evening. I was never asked if I would like a second cocktail. My water glass was never empty thanks to the bus staff. The desserts we had were nice, but nothing exceptional. All in all the meal was very nice, but I expected better attention to detail for the price. Food value A. Service value B. I would go back given the location, view and quality food.

It's been 10 years since I've been to Las Brisas for Sunday Brunch and I have to say I was not impressed. The service was mediocre, the fruit appetizer was to scarce to notice, the entree was just so-so and the dessert was tasteless. I was disappointed and won't be back soon.

We made reservations for Sunday “brunch”. It wasn’t a brunch, it was more of a pre-fix, four course meal, that was outrageously priced for what we were given. I chose the prime rib which included fruit, choice of salad or soup, entree, choice of carrot cake or Mexican chocolate layer cake for dessert. That was $72, that was for me only, without tax and tip.

The food wasn’t fresh. I ordered the prime rib (medium rare), mashed potatoes and asparagus. It came out Luke-warm and the prime rib was WELL DONE. it was 2:15pm in the afternoon, so I’m assuming that’s why. We started off with a “fresh fruit plate” and Mexican pastries. Well, it wasn’t fresh at all. The fruit had been cut and sitting out for a while. Then a choice of salad or pozole soup. I had the pozole. Good. But nothing special. It was in a plain bowl. No condiments, no presentation. Nothing. The main course I chose was the prime rib (see above). I didn’t even bother with the dessert offered and ordered from their dessert menu, the tostada berry bowl and paid an extra $10 for that. So my meal ended up being $82 plus tax and tip. Soooo NOT worth what I paid. I would have expected more from Las Brisas. Very disappointed. I was so excited to go there on Easter for brunch. Not again. I would have expected more for the $82 (plus tax and tip AND valet) that I paid. So annoyed that I paid so much money for something that was mediocre. The only reason Why I even gave it two stars was because the waitress was nice, the managers checked on us to see how we were and the view of the ocean was nice to see. Otherwise, I would have given it one star.

Seriously overpriced for the experience. Food OK, not great.
We are locals, and have been eating at Las Brisas for 30 years. This was not a value for the money meal. No one told us in advance about free parking with the meal- we paid for meters. What passed for champagne was not anything we would drink. View and service, as usual, were great. The food was not. We will pass next Easter.

Went to Las Brisas for a 50th birthday celebration. We got to the restaurant early & had mimosas at the bar while we waited for our table to be set up. We were given a wonderful window view table. We went on a Saturday & had the brunch buffet. They had oysters, shrimp, prime rib, made to order omelets, fresh fruit, omelets & much more. Everything was great. We will definitely go there again!

This used to be my favorite restaurant. I stopped there for brunch every time I was in the area. It still has a stellar location on the coast adjacent to Heisler Park. But the brunch that was $8.95 when I first started dining there, and was around $16.00 a couple years ago, is now $32.00. The result is that the dozens who used to line up every morning have found other places, and I saw no more than about half a dozen occupied tables. Yes, they now have fancier plates, with redecorated interior space, and the restrooms got long overdue face lifts, but the updated breakfast buffet is streamlined to offer fewer options - STILL no fresh strawberries - and we found that even hot herbal tea was unavailable. For the price we paid, that's inexcusable. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be dining elsewhere - perhaps with the scores of other people who used to dine at Las Brisas.
