It is a great place with amazing views. Food was above average.

I hosted two guests in the outdoor dining. Food was ok. I prefer flour to corn tortillas but flour is not an option. The following comments reflect my being accustomed to the more stringent Covid standards observed by fine dining and even inexpensive restaurants in Los Angeles County. Laguna Beach seems to have other standards.

Our waiter was pleasant and attentive but he and all the wait staff I saw at Las Brisas wore only a single mask, not masks plus shields as is required in Los Angeles. Most believed it was fine to stand close to patrons, speak loudly a few feet from diner's faces and ok to allow their masks to slip below their nostrils. As I walked through the inside of the restaurant, busy waiters and bus staff brushed by me. There is no 6 foot rule. Later that day I received a notice from Open Table that I had not shown up for my brunch reservation. In response to my reply to Open Table, OT corrected this mistake.

It was an ok experience and food is good but not that extraordinary. The service the waiter spent a lot of time talking.

The chips & Guacamole and the drinks it took forever to arrive at the table.

This is a restaurant that you pay for the view, more than the food for sure. The view is spectacular and unmatched in area. Service was good. Food was good but we ate somewhere the next night was half the price but with no view. It’s a trade off. And one I would make again for sure. It’s lovely and worth a visit.

A perfectly romantic location. Go during daylight hours and enjoy the ocean views and people watching. At brunch, order the smoked salmon tostadas - one of the best appetizers ever!

Go for the views and the drinks but not for the food. Overpriced and mediocre to put it mildly. I ordered the steak and lobster enchiladas and the side of rice and black beans tasted worse than a microwaved preparation and the enchiladas were dreadful tasting. The lobster and the pathetic steak bits were overlooked... I have had better food at Taco Bell for under $5.00...

Wonderful brunch at Las Brisas yesterday on the gorgeous patio overlooking the ocean. The lobster benedict was fabulous as was the french toast. The bottomless mimosas were also wonderful. Such a great way to spend our last day in beautiful Laguna Beach. The setting is stunning.

We waited about 25 minutes for service after being seated. Our waiter stopped at our table to let us know they were busy for a Monday night, so he’d be with us soon. It was nice to get notice, but the wait was long even for our drinks, which arrived with our appetizers. The food and drinks were great though, thankfully.

Everything was great at Las Brisas except for a big delay in getting our food. Other tables sat and ordered after us, but received their food before we did. Other than that, a great dinner.

We had a lovely evening. The service was good because they were very nice but they were very busy and therefore our table was left alone which resulted in having to ask for water, and silverware and ice tea several times because we could not get the attention of the servers. They tried but they were so busy that day. The food was very good and of course the view as always to die for. I did have a problem with parking. Their valet was closed because it was full which didnt seem right especially if we had reservations. I ended up crossing the barriers and going in anyways and they accepted my car without saying anything. It was a very enjoyable evening.
