Loved the intimate feel to the main area but it was extremely loud. Hoped that windows could have been opened to help but the patrons at the windows said no. Unless you are seated by the windows, which unfortunately we were not, there is nothing spectacular about the view which was the primary reason why we came.
Food and service were excellent. But again, we came primarily for the view so we were disappointed.
Food was amazing as always... Not the place to go if looking for a deal but definitely worth the money if you are looking for a great meal while listening to crashing waves...
Great food and service but a bit expensive. View and sounds from the ocean made for a nice evening. Great view of Catalina.
This was our first time here, it is such a beautiful, romantic place. You are so close to the beach , great view very peaceful just sitting and watching the waves. The service is outstanding, very friendly. The food was delicious, prepared so beautifully on your plate.
I just love this place , its a beautiful scenery !! Cant get any better to just eat delishious food with a great view .
Always a pleasure! Excellent serve and excellent food!!
See y’all next time!
Just had a late lunch on Father's day at Surf & Sand. Had a great time and experience. Summer sangria got to try ;-).
This is one of our favorite brunch spots. Beautiful view, good quality food and usually good service. Took our Dad’s for Father’s Day and the service was horrible. After waiting for an hour for our food, I asked for the manager to check on our order since our waitress was completely incompetent. He apologized and told us there was a mix up and our food came out 10min later. It ruined the mood for Father’s Day. We had higher expectations from such a fantastic spot.
Actually, my server was great, but the kitchen was very backed up. It really delayed our meal. But, the food was wonderful and our server comped us a dessert!
Special Birthday celebration for my friend from NYC
We were first taken to a small table that downstairs outside. The table was very small and was bumped up against the wall, it seemed like a very strange area for a table. We asked to be reseated and they took us upstairs. We were sat at a table next to a large group of people and it was slightly noises. A table became available by the window and the manager asked us if we wanted to move again. I said that would be nice and they graciously moved us again.
One thing that was poorly designed is that to get to the pool you have to walk directly through the restaurant and people are in bathing suits and carrying surf boards...not a very romantic atmosphere. I was very disappointed with the restaurant, not what I thought it would be and it put a damper on the evening.
The view is unbeatable & the staff are on the top of their game! Best service & best view ever!
Would not go back for dinner. Drinks and view only.
Great service, delicious food and perfect location!
Beautiful view and delicious seafood
Great views of the beach. Great food is pricey, but it's on the beach.
I want to have brunch there at least monthly now. The scallops were excellent.
Truly awesome. Food, service, ambiance. Absolutely great!
Wonderful Of course everyone loves splashes and we wish we could see you every weekend
The service here is excellent. The Brussel sprouts for appetizer is a great plate to share. All the ingredients are fresh and well prepared. Vegetarian entree with couscous, vegetables and pesto was a knockout. They will also prepare special vegetarian dish if you wish. the view is spectacular with a beach view and sunsets. It has an open air feel and the sounds of the ocean.
Can’t beat having a delicious brunch sitting next to the sand in gorgeous Laguna Beach. Menu selection for brunch could be expanded, but the location more than makes up for it.
You cannot go wrong eating lunch next to the Sea! Really, doesn't get much better than that.
Service-excellence. Food-delicious, experience-magical!!
Splashes, one of the best places in Laguna Beach!
The hostess, don't remember her name. Young, very thin girl, maybe Alyssa? Anyway, she was awesome. The other hostess didn't read that we wanted a window seat and wrote that in a week ago, so the other hostess saved the day with her personality, quick thinking, and seat she found us.
The food is excellent, The waiter has the personality of a silk house plant and we have had him before. He kid of treats you like he is better than you, but who cares really.
These are just comments as if I owned the place since I have a couple of businesses.
enjoy the view and the food，very relax
Very relaxing having lunch directly overlooking the beach and tide! The food and service were great and I loved the summer sangria! Very friendly staff and easy valet service. Will definitely return!
Always amazing. The view is best of anywhere in o.c. for brunch. The service was a little slow but I could have cared less...could have sat there all day. Bloody Marys incredible. Love the menu and the food. Walk on the beach afterwards.
This is the most stunning restaurant. We had reservations (recommended) for a party of 4 for a birthday celebration. They sat us outside on their beautiful patio which is basically on the sand. Our server recommended great cocktail options as well as non-alcoholic option as I am very obviously pregnant. I thought that was a nice touch. Our service was flawless and food was incredible. We shared the black bean nachos for an appetizer and I would highly recommend those. At the end, we were asked if we wanted to have chairs and umbrellas set up at the beach for us. I wish we would have brought our suits so we could have enjoyed that too. Overall an amazing experience. We will all be back.
The experience we had was exceptional. We celebrated our five year anniversary and as a surprise, our waiter Pepe brought out an amazing Creme Brulee which was an awesome ending to our fantastic meal.
The scallops were to die for and the halibut was amazing as well. We also tried the pork belly and to our surprise that was actually the highlight of the night.
beautiful view and amazing service. Can't recommend it enough!
I made reservations for 2 to celebrate my Sons' 34th Birthday. His Sister, living in San Diego decided to surprise him by attending the dinner with his Niece, and my 20 month old Granddaughter. The Staff did not blink!! They quickly provided a window table for the 4 of us. Our excellent Server, wish I could remember her name, rushed over with crayons and activities for the baby..between that and the baby being amazed and entertained with the Ocean view and the waves of water crashing to the shore made our dining experience a Wonderful Event...then the Birthday dessert came and a good time was had by All!! Our server took pictures for us!!!
Everything was perfect, I wish more restaurants could be as well prepared.
Absolutely nailed it on every level from service to excellent food...… The ocean view was amazing especially at night with lighting. This was a great value and one of the best dinners and experiences we have had in a while. Our server Ryan was on it from the minute we sat down!! I highly recommend this for date night or any occasion...…
My wife and I went for her birthday and I advised them it was her birthday. The front-of-house hostess wished her a happy birthday, and we got a window table as requested. The noise was almost unbearable, driven by two large tables on either side of us - not the fault of the restaurant, and it did quieten when one of the groups left. However the service was very average:
- We got a bottle of water and a cocktail each to start; for the rest of the meal we never got asked if we wanted more water or additional cocktails or wine. I had to flag down my waiter eventually when my entree arrived to ask for a glass of wine to accompany it.
- The table busing was not good - we had appetizer remains in front of us when the entrees arrived, we had remnants of the bread basket (olive tapenade) left on the table for the whole meal and the two extra place settings at the table were never removed.
- The appetizers were nice, but both entrees were poor. Mine was accompanied by potato au gratin that was not cooked through. My wife's steak was tough and lacking in flavor - not what I would expect for a $49 steak.
Food was very good. Atmosphere can’t be beat. See vice was poor at best. Bad service can’t be made up by a free dessert, sorry.
Everything from the ambiance to the service was impeccable. I think we had the best table at the restaurants, though they all have incredible views. Our server was absolutely amazing. It was a Birthday dinner for our friend Jeff and the staff made it very special for him. Thank you guys.
Everything great. Amazing view and vibe. I also loved the food. I’ve putted 4 star for food bc my boyfriend didn’t like the steak. He doesn’t like souse on steak that’s like a crime lol. Put the souse into souser.
The hotel itself beautiful too.
Too many ingredients, too many buzzwords on dishes that fight each other. Need to let quality produce and protein shine more. Good lobster bisque. Bland mussels which we did not eat. Taken off the check without anyone coming by to inquire... meat also underdone.
nice host staff and of course great view
I usually eat at Splashes at least 4 times a year. Pricey but worth it..
So dirty that we left without eating
They sat us facing the kitchen because saving all window ocean view table for 5pm, our reservation was at 3 and we were 15 mins late. They stopped serving at 4 anyways and could have easily sat us outside since we only got apps and drinks and told them that’s all we’d have and be done by 4
