Las Brisas was one of the most beautiful experiences of our vacation. Hector and Matt were fantastic servers and the food was incredible. We can't wait to return to Laguna Beach for another wonderful experience!

We enjoyed the day at Las Brisas. Brian gave excellent service as well as the other wait staff. Our tacos were delicious made and the margaritas were delightful. We will be sure to continue our patronage of this great restaurant. The Rosegarden setting was beautiful and so enjoyable with a view of the ocean and umbrellas to protect if it was too warm.

The valet was courteous. The price is $10.00 for 3 hours. The server was friendly, and knew the menu well. He answered all my questions. I chose the eggs, potatoes with crab, and homemade corn tortillas. This was delicious. Lots of flavor. I would definitely order this again. I did ask for military discount, and unfortunately they do not honor at this time. This place is out in the open, and the views of Laguna Beach are stunning.

Outdoor dining outstanding, and the view equally so. You will feel safe as tables are spread apart. Parking is $10 but you can walk around town for a while after eating.

The service was slow to start. Our waitress explained that their was an unexpected rush when one of the bar tenders was on their lunch. She offered a complimentary round of drinks to make up for the slow start and even comped the 2nd round! that was very nice of las brisas to do. The rest of the service was excellent, the food was great and you cant complain about enjoying a steak over a beach sunset. All in all, great experience. Highly recommend.

Wonderful for brunch on the weekend. When I went they had a 4 course brunch menu that had plenty of choices for all likes. The restaurant has a great ambiance with the views of Laguna Beach's coast.

When you go out to dinner and spend $100 per person, the food needs to be prepared for you, not cooked in advance and thrown on a plate. Also, when you seat guests, you can't leave them sitting for 20 minutes without saying hello or bringing them a drink. I'm giving it some credit due to covid chaos, but the food just needs to be better. They also put vanilla in the margaritas which is weird.

Bottom line, you're paying to look at the ocean.....buy a sandwich and sit on the beach, it's cheaper and tastes better.

Due to outside dining in the parking lot the true ambiance of the restaurant has been lost. Would very much like to dine in when the pandemic is over for the experience of this location. The ratings are low on this review mainly because the waitress stated there was no bones in the fish that we ordered but there clearly was, which we would not have chosen that dish had she stated that. We ended up picking thru our food on our supposed to be romantic date!

Beautiful spot. Way better for Brunch than dinner. We were sat at a table next to parking lot even with reservations. Music was too loud. Lights from parking lot were blinding. Food was good but overpriced. Probably would have felt the value if we could see the ocean from our table.

Visited Las Brisas because I heard of the views and ambiance. I had also heard it was overpriced but thought I’d still give it a try. My hubby and I like to sample things so we ordered a few appetizers (shrimp & crab ceviche, yellow tail sashimi, spicy pork ribs) and a pitcher of the spicy margarita. Everything was pretty tasty - but I would agree it was overpriced for the amount of food we ordered. Maybe if we stuck to entrees we would have received more food. We were seated outside around their fire pit, which we liked. We’ll try this place again when it’s completely opened up - and hopefully get their happy hour prices, too. I think if you’re spending some time around Laguna Beach this is a nice place to end the day - but I don’t think it’s worth a trip if this is all you’re doing in town.

Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She made our evening more fun. She made excellent recommendations. The Rellenos filled with shrimp and crab were outstanding. The steak enchilada and the lobster enchilada were perfect. I highly recommend this place, especially at sunset. We can't travel to far away places right now but this restaurant location transported us magically. We could have been in Mexico or even Nice, truly a wonderful experience.

Our waiter was exceptional! The banter he and my husband had was brilliant. The view (as always) is divine. The food was lackluster. That’s being kind. My soup was subpar. My steak and lobster enchiladas look like they were taken straight out of a Swan TV Dinner package. Microwaved and placed on my plate. Extremely disappointing meal that came to over $200 for just 2 adults and an eleven year old girl.

We will return for the view. However, we shall eat beforehand and just enjoy drinks, chips and salsa.

Las Brisas is a beautiful location in Laguna. They have made a bigger outdoor space. Service was slow and very rushed. The food is expensive for what you get. OC has other restaurants that have good views with much better food. I’d go once to experience.

We haven’t been here since all the covid began. Really happy that we can start dining out again. However wasn’t too happy with experience. Our food was great though. Just a little disappointed with the oysters, it was way overpriced. Our service was fair. I’m sure they were getting busy again but having to always call and ask for something from your server because something was lacking or not there yet after waiting for quite some time makes it a blah moment. Everything was doing well as we understand that because of COVID, our dining experience will be different. But covid or not, we always request to have the fries separated from the main meal for our son. All places have done it without any problems. Our son will not eat anything but fries if he sees it. This one however, split his meal, which we really didn’t ask for. To make the long story short, server knew it was a mistake, still proceeds to put it on our table, infront of our son, and said kitchen really didn’t understand. So yup, all my toddler ate was the fries with some tantrums because we were giving him his real meal. Oh well. Guess that’s fair customer service there. Our enchiladas and salmon were good though

They did a nice job with the outdoor dining. The food was better than El Torito, but not really worth 3 times the price. Still, a nice experience, but get ready to pay $75 per person for brunch (w/ one drink).
