Las Brisas offers one of the great views in the western hemisphere. There are scores of window tables affording a clear sighting of Laguna Beach's main beach and famous Bird Rock. The view combines with the lovely architecture and decor to create an uplifting ambience that is nicely matched by the friendly spirit of the staff and waiters.
The food is good, of decent quality, not spectacular except in its presentation and abundance, prepared with care and ready when you want it.

The waiters and bus people were clueless about clearing our table. We had a party of five and the table was set for six. Not until we had finished eating did they remove the extra place setting and wine list. We had to ask them to remove the wine glasses that were not being used, as they cluttered up our table during dinner. While the ambiance and food were nice, the service left much to be desired...especially for a restaurant such as this.

A little extra goes a long way, maybe put a little flower in your passion fruit mai tai, dont serve stale dinner rolls, maybe promote your valet attendants to servers they were more personable.

Las Brisas is famous and rightfully so. Food is always exquisite, the staff is fantastic, the location and ambiance are great. The remodeled bar is much more approachable and the patio's only problem is that too many people want to be on it!

Restaurant decor in general looked a little tired and in need of a refresh. Food was expensive but in all fairness was excellent quality. Kevin our waiter was knowledgeable and very professional. 2 Entree's 3 drinks and 1 dessert $200 with the tip. Not somewhere I'd go on a regular basis, but all in all a very enjoyable experience.

We were at Las Brisas on Mother's Day.....and that holiday is very challenging as venues tend to add too many tables in order to accomodate more people, the wait staff is stressed because they are so busy. Our experience on this Mother's Day was impeccable. We had a lovely ocean view, our waiter was very attentive, our meals were both excellent! Bravo! Las Brisas gave me a wonderful Mother's Day!

We went for mother's day. Everything was fantastic. The only downside was the filet was overcooked which kind of ruined the meal. This was the case for both my husband's and my meal. Other than that, everything else was spectactular.

Valet parking was excellent. Very short wait time with reservation. Table with a view and excellent service. Drinks were superb and the food was good. It was Mother's Day weekend and we went on Saturday, which was perfect. Recommend.

Bad start. We went for the breakfast brunch. They kept us waiting 20 min after our reservation time. Then they told us that the brunch closed 20 minutes ago!!!!!!! We drove all the way up to Laguna Beach from San Diego and they totally screwed around with us! Very bad experience!

We were 3 couples celebrating May anniversaries together! Great view of the ocean. Wait staff was great with food arriving on time. Our salad plates weren't cleared before main course arrived but it wasn't a huge deal. It was raining upon leaving and we didn't have umbrellas so hostess staff gave us some handle bags to cover our heads which was really nice. Then the valet guys gave us a bottle of water and baggie of chocolate cookies for the ride home. Left us feeling great about our time at Las Brisas!

This was our first visit to Las Brisas, so we weren't sure what to expect. We had the breakfast buffet. The food was delicious, but I was a little disappointed that being so close to the ocean, there weren't very many seafood dishes included in the buffet. The service was great. The manager even stopped by each table to chat with the customers, which was a very nice touch. We would definitely go back here and bring the rest of the family,

Initially, we were disappointed because after being seated we were overlooked as I think a server wasn't clearly attached to that table. I waved down a manager and they sent handled it absolutely the way I would have expected from a well run restaurant. We were taken care of thereafter and the food was excellent and the location is a must-do.

This was a very special milestone Birthday for my BFF.. We ended ordering 2 seafood towers because it had EVERYTHING the Birthday Girl Loved. It was ALL GREAT! Our Waiter, Nick was THE BEST hands down. I appreciated what he did for us. We had a hiccup with the Birthday cake person FORGETTING THE MILESTONE CAKE.. Nick stepped in and put something acceptable together.

Thank you Las Brisas!

Got married at Laguna Beach 30 years prior and had our reception drinks at Las Brisas.
Only fitting to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary here. Staff was very helpful, kind, courteous. Waiter was very attentive. Spent a great deal of time explaining all the menu choices, what to expect from the specials. Had the pick 3 lunch special. Tasty, but very small portions. Not enough food for a meal, would have made nice appetizers. Food was cold, but the service was excellent. The Pearl Margarita cocktail was fantastic, made the whole experience worthwhile. I probably wouldn't return for the food, but can't beat the friendly staff and the fantastic ocean view.
