It was perfect with an ocean view!
We chose Splashes for our annual holiday friends dinner. I booked it in advance on open table and we were pleasantly surprised at the seating location, we received a table next to the ocean.
Everything went perfectly and we were able to enjoy our time together, eating and drinking.
The only issue I had was when the Bills came, I had asked in advance that I would pay separately for the first round of drinks. Everything was fine but the fact that they automatically included a 20% tip into the bill. I was told because it was a party of 6 or more. I’m fine with that on a food bill, but I feel that’s a excessive charge for just drinks.
I’m not cheap, but I also didn’t want to argue the point while with friends.
So just a heads up that you’ll pay over $30 tip just for drinks here, if you have a party of six or more.
Originally booked for the main dining room but after speaking with a friendly server found we could have the same menu in the bar right down at beach level' a great choice for celebrating both our birthdays.Service was excellent and food complemented the wine we took a bottle of Coup de Foudre Cab from Napa. An excellent evening.
Wonderful location and great food!
Service was outstanding throughout the resort.
Fantastic food and service.
The view is amazing and the food is delicious.
The view is the best in the west coast. The service is super and the food was above average so overall really wonderful experience!!
We had Thanksgiving dinner. It was delicious!
Server was great. All the staff were very friendly, even with so many people in the restaurant.
My sister and I went for Thanksgiving lunch, and while the food was good and the ocean view was fantastic, we were not seated where I had requested. I had to wear my sunglasses because we were seated outside and the sun was right in my eyes. Overall, we had a nice time.
We had the Thanksgiving special for $85. Brussels were a weak offering with little season to take away bitter taste. Turkey was dry. Apple strudel hard to eat. Ridiculous 3% charge as they have to comply with CA law which is a reason to avoid stupid management decisions and eat elsewhere. Why when we tip do we have to cover you paying a decent wage mandated by CA law. We pay your overflated prices for ordinary food + 3% plus our 20 percent recommended tip.
Food average, Service outstanding. Views and sounds of Ocean waves incredible
View was incredible. Perfect for a birthday celebration. Scallops and short ribs were amazing. Lobster bisque was disappointing and lacked flavor, as did the side of mashed potatoes.
Potatoes were very soupy consistency with little taste. We loved the gorgeous view and the desert was over the top. Prices were extremely high, but service was exceptional.
It was our 36th anniversary and we were treated amazing. The food was fabulous, the staff amazing and there is no view like that anywhere. We have loved it since we had our wedding reception there 36 years ago.
Th sound of the waves crashing and the glowing fireplace made this a restaurant worth returning to.
Enjoyed a fantastic brunch with our daughter with a killer view of the Pacific and slow rolling waves on a sunny Sunday in Laguna Beach. The Mexican-inspired Short Ribs with Eggs, Black Bean Nachos, and Rosemary and Thyme Fries were inhaled...but, my wife wish she ordered the French Brioche Toast that our neighbor ordered instead of her low-calorie Egg White Fritata :)
Afterwards, we accessed the beach from the restaurant and walked-off what we consumed. Definitely worth the visit...
As a So. CA native and OC local the choices are many but this is a standout for the view, atmosphere and service. The food also never disappoints. I’ve been here over and over again, and still love coming here.
Service is outstanding. Food is delicious. Views spectacular.
loved the food and the service. Acknowledged our anniversary by bringing us a special dessert with candle -- no charge!
Great ocean view. Food good. Scallops, Brussel sprouts recommend.
Stunningly beautiful views and fantastic service. The food was not good.
One of the best combinations of great food, views, ambiance, and price available in SoCal !
My friends and I ate at Splashes to celebrate my 60th birthday and the food, service, and ambiance was truly amazing! If you are ever in Laguna Beach, Splashes is a must for drinks at Sunset followed by dinner!!
My favorite local restaurant! Most of the time we are picking between amazing food or ambiance. Here, we get both!!
We love this place.
Pepe, our server, was outstanding. Very knowledgeable about the menu choices and attentive all through the meal. Vast menu available. Succulent Duck Breast.
very amenable to vegetarian options (each dish made fresh) and great wine list (and great wine prices)
Fabulous place; excellent staff. The view and sound of the Pacific are incredible and the food is outstanding. Come early to enjoy a cocktail while you watch the sunset on the patio.
We (2) arrived for 12:00 Sunday Lunch/Brunch and were immediately seated. The Hostess asked if we wanted to sit outside or inside, and of course chose outside! Our table was next to the glass windbreak right over the sand. The sound of the surf and the warm sun was a real treat. It was fun watching various beachgoers as we enjoyed our beautiful location. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure we knew what and how dishes were prepared. His suggestions for cocktails and dessert were right on. We loved our lunch choices and just had to taste each other's too.
My friend had never eaten at Splashes, and it was years ago that I last ate there. We were both impressed with the entire experience. We were not rushed and took the time we needed to talk, catch up and enjoy a special day in the midst of our day by day life in north Orange County.
Great staff, awesome views and delicious food! The cauliflower soup was absolutely amazing!!
Everything was amazing. The staff definitely knows how to make your dinning experience special. They are very attentive and conversational. Food is great and view is to die for!
As always, the food was excellent and nowhere can beat the sunset view. The service is the absolute best.
The atmosphere was leisurely and relaxed - very enjoyable.
Amazing atmosphere, we sat next to the window with a breathtaking view on the ocean. Food was delicious and service impeccable. Will definitely come back.
One of my favorite places in Laguna Beach!
Been going there for years and we always get great service and great food and a view it’s beautiful
I had the branzino and it was delicious! Cooked just perfect and it was buttery without the truffle jus but with the jus was amazing! My sister got the seared scallops and my parents got the short rib and all the food was so delicious! And Kimmy was an amazing waitress, really made my family feel welcome and valued. We're a bit different looking than the locals in Laguna but we felt very received on my birthday dinner.
The dessert was deelicious! We had the creme brulee, best I have ever had, and my famoly shared the tropical sorbet, which was fruity and not too sweet, the tres leches cake and the chocolate molleux. All wonderful!
I would park on the side street because the drive way in and out is a steep cline.
Service and food were both excellent. The birthday celebration was perfect with a great view.
Beautiful ocean view. Kimmy, our server, was awesome. The good was nice. Lobster bisque is a must try.
They were unorganized
Excellent service, food and views! The vegetarian food was excellent as well.
