The Marine Room

$50 and over
Seafood
For generations of San Diegans, the “Seahorse” symbol of The Marine Room has long stood for its dramatic on-the-surf location and California coastal cuisine. Considering this rare blend of culinary excellence, uncompromising service and beachfront setting, it’s no wonder The Marine Room has become a true San Diego landmark. We invite you to San Diego's iconic dining destination and experience how each tide brings something new to The Marine Room. You’re not reserving a table – you’re joining a 80-year tradition.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Michael Vaughn

This is an iconic La Jolla gem. What was French fine-dining is now a standout sustainable seafood spot serving local bluefin tuna with edamame and pickled ginger. The dining room is still the place to go for a killer oceanfront view—especially during high tide, when waves crash against the windows.

    Too many people crowding the place. Unfortunately now a tourist spot. Time to move on I think.

    It had been some time since our last dining experience at the Marine Room and the evening didn't disappoint! Our waiter, John, was amazing as were the other waitstaff. Must be back during high tide next time.

    Nearly the experience of a lifetime with the exception of getting married. Likewise, we gratefully celebrated our Blessed 38th Wedding Anniversary from the welcoming Valet and hostesses, bartender (Kirkland) and most exceptional server (Zack) as well as his staff while seated at the most Fabulous Table. It would be our pleasure indeed to return to “The Marine Room”!

    The High Tide Dinner was worth it! My wife and I enjoyed the Chef’s Table Experience and all 9 courses were delicious. We opted for the cocktail pairing instead of the wine pairing. The cocktails were good, but I would definitely choose the wine pairing next time.
