    It was my birthday and wanted to have brunch near the beach. This was a perfect spot for us three. You could hear the waves while your eating and the cool breeze and smell of the ocean. It was wonderful! Our waitress Jhoanna was very attentive.

    My husband and I dined here last night to celebrate our anniversary. We had oceanside seating, excellent food and overall the best dining experience since moving to OC. Our waiter, Carson, was excellent and of course, kudos to Chef Ron. Looking forward to a return visit.

    We celebrated my sisters birthday at Splashes and the service, food and ambiance was amazing! The drinks were strong (just how I like them) and the food was delicious. Patrick was our server and he was so attentive and helpful. The beach view while enjoying dinner was priceless!

    Ate there twice w/o ordering an entree as there are limited choices on menu. Farm raised salmon is not an option. The ability to contact Splashes and the internal communications between the front desk and the restaurant is inoperable. Left a general message during off hours and called back to confirm at the front desk of the hotel. “We will take of it” was the response. I later called the hotel during their hours of operation and made the cancellation direct with the restaurant. Within half an hour of making the change direct with the restaurant, I got a call with them asking for confirmation that night that I had already canceled three times - hard to believe ! The $23 cheese board was amazing as was the octopus. I complemented the very satisfying appetizers with the $19 lobster bisque soup both times and enjoyed them immensely. The high point of both nights was our amazing server Dulce who is caring, attentive and a real joy to work with as she takes great joy in making sure her customers are well served. The views of the Pacific are the best !

    The food was very average at best among three appetizers and two entrees ordered. Cocktails were sub par. The food used to be much better but there is now a wide gulf between the quality of the food, preparation, presentation and flavors compared to what you’re paying. My wife and I wont return unless a new chef is named and their culinary goals evolve.

    We were there for our 55th Anniversary. I had requested a table at the window, and we got one but kind of tucked in the corner; not what I had hoped for. Our server, Mark, was great. The first two wines we tried to order were “out of stock” so they comped us a 3rd wine which was delicious. Our food was delicious and beautifully plated. We never felt rushed, which was really pleasant.

    My friends and I came here for brunch and we tried a lot of different dishes. Our favorites were the wild mushroom flatbread and the mahi mahi fish tacos. The flat bread was just the right amount of cheesiness with lots of decadent mushrooms and the tacos had generous portions of fish. The pickled onions on the tacos made it so authentic! We also tried the octopus and Brussel sprouts for appetizers and they did not disappoint. We will definitely be back to try the caramelized banana French toast and the king salmon. Can't wait!

    Great food, gorgeous views and spectacular service. Splashes was recommended to us by a friend. We arrived a little early for our reservation but they happily seated us. One of our guests is in a wheelchair and the staff could not have been more accommodating! We had the table side lobster bisque along with some sourdough bread...delicious. The 5 hour short rib with butternut squash cloud, charred onion and icicle radish is a mouthwatering delight. The NY steak was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. We have never seen mashed potatoes so perfectly whipped! Get the wild mushrooms too! Bravo to the amazing staff! Dulce, our server, was genuine, knowledgeable, and so helpful with suggestions. An absolute delight! The others that assisted, and forgive me for not remembering everyone's names, we on top of everything! I can not wait to go back!

    We were celebrating a birthday so they comped the valet parking charge, which was totally unexpected. They gave us a wonderful table and the food and service were excellent. My only comment is that the halibut special was a little salty.
