I made reservations through opentable a month ago and clearly stated it was my mothers 80th birthday.
We were on time, and had to wait for our table, there was some attitude, and we were put In a tight table in a corner. The food was okay, location and ambiance was amazing, service was slow, but okay so we can enjoy dinner. This is the 3rd time I’ve been there and every time I get the attitude thing...it’s a feeling like Las Brisas is doing us a favor...

With one of the best views along Laguna Beach, Las Brisas remains an excellent place for a meal - sit outside or in and your view of the Pacific Ocean fits in beautifully with any seafood selection.

Overall the evening was very nice and we like Las Brisas. However, the table we were placed at is in an area I believe they refer to as 'upstairs' and it was incredibly loud...not energetic but loud. I would advise against sitting in the area.

* I requested in my reservation a window seat for 6 but got a round table next to the kitchen entrance. I later noticed they accommodated others with groups of 6 and even 8 by putting tables together near the windows.

* My first 3 attempts to get a glass of red wine was met with "we are out of that". Finally the waiter brought out 3 open bottles of wine from which I could choose a glass. The bottles had wine streaks down the side leaving the impression you were getting somebody's left over wine.

* We were rushed through the appetizers and the staff seemed to want to get your order asap even though we made it clear we were not yet ready. As soon as someone finished their meal the staff was clearing the table which seemed to make everyone rush. While 3 people were still eating they kept coming over to wipe the table. The impression was that the staff had an objective to turn the table every hour.

* The food was okay but not worth the prices.

As I expected Chef J had some real good Brunch ready for the palate. Pozole was over the top good. The Passion Fruit Cheesecake paired well with the Maj Tai made with Passion Fruit. The Lobster Benedict just killed it. I'll be back soon.

I went to Las Brisas for their Sunday Brunch with my husband. We had an amazing time with great service! I had the chilaquiles and my husband had the lobster benedict. Both were amazing. The benedict had huge peices of lobster on top. You definitely get your money's worth! The brunch also comes with bottomless sparkling wine so that's a huge plus!
Our server was great! Very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive.
The view of the ocean was wonderful and relaxing. I will definitely be coming back!

I booked this reservation as a special occasion anniversary dinner. Everything was delicious and the view and ambiance were great. The only disappointment is that our server did not recognize our 28th Anniversary! The hostess wished us a happy anniversary when she greeted us, but nothing else special was done on the part of Las Brisas.😕

A nice place for cocktails, but avoid the food, which is overpriced and poorly prepared. The white wine was served barely above room temperature. Our server was very nice, and the atmosphere is great, but we won't be going back.

I found the service to be barely ok. I had to ask for the attention of a waiter every time. I had to get the menus myself. Then I found the food to be overpriced and not that great. I spent over $70 and think a refund of a minimum of $20 would be fair. Maybe you could send me a check or a credit for the next time I come, (if I do).

seviche was okay
lobster carbonara bland
garlic shrimp had no garlic taste
