The views were amazing, as was our server David. Scott at the bar took care of us as well. I will definitely be back.
Everything was FABULOUS -- the food, the service, and the fabulous view table-side in the bar -- directly overlooking the sand and shoreline!! We were all wowed and are eager to return. The grass-fed burgers were scrumptious.
The view was spectacular and the service outstanding. Great for a date or with kids.
wonderful setting. Best in Laguna Beach! Food always amazing....
try the lobster bisque... :)
Went here for brunch for a date/late birthday celebration. They were able to give us a window seat since we arrived a bit before 11:30. Food was great and the view was great. They also have wifi since cell signal is bad. Valet is the only option but it isn't complimentary
A wonderful time with great food, a knowledgeable and attentive staff, and an awesome ambiance.
Reserved/requested a table at 5 to view sunset for a special occasion (not valentines) with friends leaving the OC and married the hotel. Couldn’t even see the sun from our table. Just set a bad tone to the beginning of a long planned evening together. David’s service and light humor somewhat rescued the evening. For the price and location of our table I would not return.

Good ocean view. That’s it. Food not great.
Splashes is one of my favorites but what a disappointment this was. We were showing off the beautiful view but the service was so incredibly slow. People next to us, actually two tables sat after us and ate before us. Not sure we will be back for anything other than drinks at the bar.
We really enjoyed ourselves my waiter was very helpful he went through the menu with me to help me out with the courses I’d definitely come back here.
In all fairness to the restaurant, it was very busy Valentine's night and they were doing their best. I should have called in advance and confirmed the menu and cost. The food portion was not worth $150 per person. if I would have known (once again my fault for not calling and confirming), we would have made reservations elsewhere. On a positive note, exceptional views and beautiful clean beach. We would go back to the bar, but not sure we would go back for dinner.
Valentine’s dinner was amazing!
Lovey ❤️Day lunch to enjoy with ones loved one. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Valentines Day lunch with my boys
I loved the breakfast options at Splashes. It was an elegant breakfast and a perfect way to begin my day. The restaurant is quaint and cozy and you are practically on the ocean. Beautiful.
So frustrated with splashes. This is the second time we have tried this gorgeous restaurant for this special occasion. The setting is gorgeous but unfortunately they don’t back it up with food quality or variety, service or value. They are inflexible when asked for special requests and seem to have no realization that there is a need to say yes and make customers happy. The menu has nothing to offer kids in the 12-16 range and the costs are $40 for an average entree. We won’t be going back - done with trying to make this work.
Beautiful ocean views, excellent service and good food.
Great food, awesome service and couldn’t ask for a better view!
Great wait service; wonderful view. Good food.
Ocean front dining at its beet!!! Enjoyed an awesome meal while watching and listening to the waves crash right next to us! The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Will go back again soon!!
You can’t say enough about the location of this restaurant is just simply amazing and the option of walking down 10 steps to get to the water is priceless food is good as well maybe a little bit on the expensive side but what do you expect given them where you are 4atars!
Wonderful Menu and Environment!
We decided to try Splashes based on positive reviews and we were not disappointed! The setting is spectacular and while it was dark when we arrived it was thrilling to see the waves just below us crashing in. It was a chilly evening and we were seated at a cozy table next to the fireplace. Patrick, our waiter, was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered the famous lobster bisque and a pear and quince salad as starters. Also short ribs for me and the special fish, a John Dory, for my husband. I wanted just a half glass of white with my bisque- Patrick recommended the Albariño and brought just half a glass. He recommended a Heitz Cabernet for my short ribs. Both great pairs! Food was superb though I wished short ribs had some sauce. And to celebrate my husband’s birthday Patrick brought ya gorgeous crepe brûlée! On the house! Such a nice evening! Highly recommend!
Nice ocean view environment with inside or patio seating. Excellent service but food just ok. I had the Caesar salad with dressing on the side with added chicken. Chicken was quite basic as was romaine presentation. Some of the other items looked better. But overall, I enjoyed the location and service which trumped the food.
Amazing food & beautiful ocean view
I almost hate to talk about Splashes because I think it's a hidden gem. Although in the Surf and Sand Hotel, you can usually get a reservation. The setting which is right on the ocean is lovely and the bar is a nice spot for sunsets. The food is consistently good with great presentation.
The food was fabulous and the service great. My only complaint was that it was quite loud (aka lively!) indoors.
Great ambiance, so enjoyed the sunset and waves outside the windows!! Service was top notch, hostesses very professional and accommodating- they let us select our table. Pork chops mediocre, over cooked, salmon was good. We love this restaurant and have enjoyed several times!!
I had a wonderful experience from a great table with a perfect view. Beet salad was delicious as well as sea breem fish. And scallops. Service was outstanding.
Our waiter, David, was on top of his game. Great recommendations, great service. The food and the presentation were top notch. Pricey, but worth it for a special occasion. Only downside ... we'd hoped to see the sunset, but the cloud bank was too thick.
