Beautiful location and view but the food was very over priced for the quality. The menu selection was much reduced - only a few Mexican options now. We ordered the branzino and halibut and both were fresh but super bland. They were over $35 each so quite pricy for what we got. I used to love this place but we won’t be coming back.

Great view of the ocean. Drinks came quickly but the food was slow to come from the kitchen. The prices are not low, just FYI.

Poor everything. Service was delayed to the point that they never even asked if we wanted a second round of drinks. Waited way too long for literally everything. Food was so-so. Very disappointing.

We had a lovely night. We invited friends for a special dinner. Our waitress was very nice but overwhelmed, clearly they are understaffed.
The absolutely best part was the new patio. We had a beautiful table overlooking the water and watched the sunset. Can't best that view!

While it’s primarily a Mexican seafood themed restaurant, I decided in the cheeseburger. It was well prepared and presented, but it was a lot off dod I’m my opinion.

We had to ask for water. And utensils. We order guacamole and chips and it never arrived - the food came right away. The drinks came after we were almost done eating. I left cash for the bill and the server never asked me if i wanted change. The difference of what i wanted to leave and what was owed was only $5 but it’s the fact that she assumed the entire amount was for her. Definitely not what i expected from a place i usually eat at

The crab salad was a very small portion for the cost! I would recommend Las Brisas for the location and ambiance but not for the food. The Women's bathroom was not clean or kept up.

Patio dining was nice, except one of our chair had a dirty stain on it which was not cleanup by their crew. Kind of gross😩. We pull out another chair to replace it, too busy to wipe it off??

The ambience was lovely Great view of the beach had a reservation so no problem with the regular long wait .I went with family during the brunch hours so they had limited food options,The food was brought to us fairly quickly and the food had a great presentation and looked tasty but in reality it was very bland, lacked flavor sadly and was way overpriced for food I wouldn’t even call good. sadly I will never be visiting this restaurant again not even for the gorgeous view.

I love Las Brisas. Everything was excellent except the valet parking lot was full when I arrived. Give yourself extra time before your reservation time in case you need to find a parking spot off-site.

When I initially called for reservations to celebrate our anniversary the restaurant was wonderful. Covid restritions hit and we had to cancel. The person in charge of events a few months later was extremely rude and answered my email the day before our date. I went on open table and got the reservations with no problem. Thank you OpenTable!

Good valet and service. Nice set up in the parking lot with a good view. Food was average but the price was absolutely terrible. Much better food and value at other places around like at south of nicks or even javiers. Not to mention there was a hair in the tortilla soup.

Went for lunch to take in the view and heard great things about the food. The location is lovely - amazing views from the patio, and the inside is set up nicely to always have a view as well. Checked in but our reservation wasn’t checked off/logged, so had to recheck in so Yelp/open table would be notified. Waited a very long time for our server after we were seated, and had to ask a bus type person to send him over later.

Then the food - it was average. The fish was all well cooked, and the sauces were good, but the dishes didn’t really come together…just tasty sauces with fish set atop. That’s we’ll and good, but for what it was it was extremely overpriced.

We’d go back for the view and just do drinks and maybe an appetizer.

The service was great! Small proportions in the food for the price that we paid. Cocktails were mostly ice. We were a party of 6. Only 3 cocktails purchased. Our bill was $360 and 2 people ordered appetizers.
