Surf and sand it’s a beautiful resort the restaurant Splashes is exceptional the food the service the Audience was wonderful
A night to remember!
AMAZING views, kind staff, and packed flavors. Very kind to include something sweet for our Anniversary. We will be back.
Brussels sprouts were so good! Kale salad was delicious. Our server was very attentive. Will definitely come back.
We had breakfast over there. Food was good overall but toast for avocado toast was prepared on butter which was reused multiple times, it had some strong aftertaste. Splashes breakfast was good. Service was standard. It has a really nice views and today morning was beautiful. Inside it is very simple, no decor, it looks very basic.
So lovely. Excellent food and view
20min late arrival from our reservation ended up in a lounge area which have a limited menu, very stressful experienced.
It was a gorgeous day in February 2020 and a great place to celebrate the closing of a property in La Jolla. We had wine along with Grilled Salmon (perfectly cooked) over Caesar salad and A very tasty Kale salad with grilled shrimps.
Ate breakfast steps away from the beach! Service was exceptional and the delicious food came out quickly! Wonderful experience. We will definitely be back again.
Food was great. The view was very nice. It is right next to the ocean.
Very nice and friendly staff.
Great service and good food with an excellent view. Lunch menu is limited but prices were not outrageous considering the view.
Fantastic evening. So nice to be out. Waiter was awesome!
Kinda cold sitting at the end in the pandemic outdoor seating. Also waiter to table ratio was off. Ehhh what are you gonna do. You go there for an amazing view of the ocean and beach and you eat conversations with they occasional edibles. A solid choice!
Wonderful food, great service and amazing viewing-all at a fair price.
The restaurant has amazing view from almost all tables, food was delicious, and service was very good.
Lovely with my 4 & 6 year old !!! No issues
Had a great dinner... amazing sunset.
Excellent food and service!
Stay away! Food has no flavor and is grossly over priced.
There is a reason this is our favorite restaurant. The food, service and view are always exceptional. They are following Covid- protocol and I am thankful we got in for dinner before everyone realizes they are back open for outdoor dining, beyond their hotel guests.
I had a amazing experience at the splashes restaurant. The food was so good and the service was amazing everyone that worked there were super nice and I really appreciate the that.
Expectations exceeded on all levels. Wonderful evening and great food!
Excellent as always!
I usually do not write reviews. I have been coming here for 25 years. Sadly when we were waiting in line for a reservation the hostess on duty Jan 31st at 5:00 pm was being very rude to the guests in front of us when they asked about their table. I had to say something or remove myself from the area as to not spoil my wife's night out. As I walked away to look at the ocean I could hear here reveling at the fact that are table was not available either. Shocking behavior. This is not acceptable at Denny's or the Four Seasons...
Very good but the valet was a jerk
Amazing food for breakfast and dinner.
Visited on first day they were open again and it was wonderful. Wait staff was so kind and even brought me steamed cream so my coffee wouldn't be cold. Food was delicious and views are amazing. So glad they are back in business. Go enjoy! Tip well as they only have probably 1/3 the tables as normal.
The lobster Bisque is the best! Can't wait till we can visit Surf & Sand again.
Great restaurant. Top notch food and service
This was a 30th anniversary dinner for my husband and I. The table was right above the beach with a close up view of waves crashing on the beach. It was amazing. I wish I would have booked a little earlier in the day as it was quite chilly even though they had gas heaters it was still uncomfortable and cold. The service was outstanding. Again, because of our later reservation (7:15pm) the kitchen was out of a a couple appetizers (oysters and pork belly and filet mignon) so with the limited menu we both had the sea scallops which were delicious and beautifully presented. The bread service was so tasty with the soft french baguette along with the olive tapenade. We ordered almost all the sides, brussel sprouts, toasted cauliflower and the wild mushrooms. All were so flavorful and perfect with the scallops. And they served us the Tahitian Vanilla Creme Brulee which was phenomenal! A perfect end to a great meal. Thanks Splashes!
Service is top-notch. Food quality is outstanding. Price for the location is very reasonable. Literally waterfront and gorgeous! Valet parking also very attentive and quick.
Best service, food and view during this pandemic! I highly recommend splashes and 1555 section to everybody who wants to have a great dining experience!
It was amazing!
We had a wonderful food experience and will return. Didn’t love our table situation compared to other times we’ve been, but we were just happy to be having a meal out so made the most of it.
Donald took very good care of us . Props to the chef .
Other than waiting and asking twice to get water, service was good.
