Food was delicious but chef changed the Order a little by not putting blue cheese on plate for the filet as described on the menu
Wonderful experience superb food not just a view restaurant
We came for the ambiance, but the staff and food were just as amazing! Monica was our server, and she was so kind, professional, and helpful. The food was delicious, we had two appetizers and two main courses and ate every last bite! While it was a special occasion for us, and out of our normal price range, we so enjoyed ourselves and it was worth every penny.
High tide, great food. Fun
The food and the view was spectacular. One person in our party was vegan and the chef made a special appetizer and main dish that was wonderful.
One of the best dining experiences I, and my guests, have ever had in the San Diego area. I compare it to my #1 dining experience in Paris, very high praise for The Marine Room, flavor, presentation and service, supreme.
Food quality, preparation and presentation were superb!
Service is good also.
Excellent place for celebration, amazing view, delicious food and service was perfect.
An amazing experience. The service was friendly and hospitable. The atmosphere was inviting, comfortable and high tide was an experience. The food was the stand out above everything.
Great atmosphere. Came here to celebrate Wedd.ing Anniversary. Some of the best food we ever had and the service was top notch. Would highly recommend
The server was excellent, the food was delicious. We had been to the Marine Room before and the view is always stunning. We were there to celebrate my husband’s retirement and the Marine Room made it extra special. We will be coming back soon!
Such a special meal with my family to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday. We loved every part of it. Great service, beautiful views and delicious food.
Valet, seating, view, service and food was excellent.
Enjoyed every aspect of our 55 Wedding Anniversary dinner. The cocktails were fantastic, right thru the dessert. Server was excellent. See even brought Chef Mike to visit with us. Will definitely return to the Marine Room.
The food was delicious and you cannot beat the view. You definitely pay for what you get.
This is a favorite place to go eat! The service the food the atmosphere the view all wonderful!!
The food was amazing, presentation was on point and the quality was top notch.
The scallops were seared just right. The salmon and lobster were cooked to perfection. The creme brûlée was very flavorful. But the best part? The tuna tartare cones! We will be coming back again!
Absolutely incredible. One of the few places that are worth the price. Skip the steak though, but definitely get the truffle pomme frites!
The marine room experience was delightful. We had a fantastic meal with exemplary views and service. The prices reflect the quality fairly. It was truly a pleasure to dine and we hope to return if we visit San Diego in the future.
Had a wonderful time, food and service were outstanding!!
First visit, family all enjoyed it. Hostess greeted us and told my son Happy Birthday wish really impressed him.
My only “complaint” was the table we sat, and the view away from the ocean was the kitchen area with a red Exit sign. I think our table is the only one that had that view, my luck it was where we sat. My family all enjoyed the view of the water, my view was of the kitchen which wasn’t good. Other item is the lighting right behind us was a single flood light facing down which was much brighter than the other lamps in the room. We asked to have the brightness turned down and was told unfortunately they couldn’t. Again, not a big deal but the mood lighting was definitively not the best for our table, given the lighting in other parts of the restaurant.
We were seated next to a group that was rather loud and unplseant.
Also, our drinks orders took too long
and our waiter acknowledged that it was his fault.
On the whole it was a good night despite the above.
The view was amazing, as well as the food and service.
The Marine Room was everything you’d expect in a fine dining establishment- staff was warm welcoming and on point with timely service. Sunset views did not disappoint
Great date night experience
Great atmosphere and delicious food. Great place for a special occasion!
Absolutely perfect in every way.
Amazing experience! We had a great time!
Very steep corkage fee. Also there was a 5% surcharge. No idea what that was for. Food was great.
Every year while visiting La Jolla for the month of September, we have a girls high school get-together. Two from East Coast and one from Utah. Last year no one came to visit and the Marine Room was closed. 2021 everyone returned and we had our usual excellent dinner and celebrated the fact that we are all together again. We've been dining at the Marine Room for 30+ years and can honestly say we never complained and the food and service is consistently excellent. Try to make your reservation around sunset as the view from almost every table guarantees you'll see the beauty of the sun setting over the Pacific.
Jonathan… Jonathan… Jonathan… how can I thank you enough for making our dining experience OVER THE TOP?!!!?? The beauty of the restaurant and the food are superb, nonetheless your genuine, polite and friendly nature accompanied by your strong attention to detail made our special occasion memorable. Oh and that mustache!! Very handsome!! 😁Sumner, thank you for being RIGHT ON TIME and paying attention to the details. Our dining experience would not have been complete without you. Additionally, thank you Dan (bartender) for suggesting a wonderful Barbera that went fabulous with our meal. It was so good that we ordered a second bottle (just FYI 😃). Thank you Brian for having our car right out front and waiting for us! We appreciate all that you do. The whole experience from start to finish was phenomenal. Even God showed up and blessed us with thunder, lightening and gorgeous ocean tides. We cannot wait to return! Thank you again!!
Went to celebrate a birthday and the service and ambience was really good. The food was delicious and we had a wonderful experience!
Service was inattentive and not up to par. Food was prepared fairly well but not up the standards for cost. Hostesses standing around doing nothing and are not friendly. View is the best part of this restaurant.
Came here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday for a sunset dinner. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Food is delicious (pricey, but WORTH IT!). The swordfish was incredible!! My boyfriend got the filet, and it practically melted in his mouth. 10/10, will come here again:)
Excellent food and service. The ocean view was beautiful!
Had a terrific time last night at the Marine room. Wrote a for
Review, but somehow it did not post. Went with a group of 4, and we very much enjoyed the truffles mushroom appetizer which was plentiful and tasty. We did the hearts of palm side dishes and appetizer and it was very interestingly spiced and very tasty, but the portion was small. The Caesar salad was excellent with terrific anchovy/garlic-based dressing with Spanish anchovies. Only problem is it is the most expensive Caesar I have had a $22. The watermelon and heirloom tomato salad was also excellent. For main courses we had the salmon, shrimp and scallops, halibut. Sammons always good, but the nicely broiled fish crispy on the top and had a delicious and subtle coconut flavor. Shrimp were large and succulent and perfectly done as were the scallops. The halibut was good with a very interesting spices. For dessert we had the special ice cream pie, a fancy version of mild pie which fed 4 of us. Service was excellent with a lovely waitress although I was a little surprised when we were offered Perrier or sparkling water and not offered free filtered tap water. The busboy, Hunter, was a delight. We asked for the Chef to come out and he kindly did so as we wanted to tell him what a terrific meal we had.
I eat out a lot, am knowledgeable about food, and must admit I did not have high expectations. I am pleased to say that overall the dining experience was terrific. I attribute much of that to their new chef, Chef Alex who is quite young but very experienced and took over just a few weeks ago with a new menu.
On the downside, the prices are very high. It is a great place when somebody else is paying or for special occasion.
We had 1 of the coveted window tables overlooking the beach. The view was spectacular. Once it was dark we had a very unexpected lightening and thunderstorm which provided an amazing show.
All in all it was a memorable night.
Went there for a honeymoon dinner. Food was excellent, served quickly and good temperature. Dessert was delectable and not too filling. View was amazing the entire night. Servers were friendly and attentive but did not harass us by coming too often.
Presentation of the food and quality were off the charts. Outstanding!
My husband took me here to celebrate a big birthday. I was blown away by the location (we had a seat for two right by the window overlooking the beach and got to see the sunset. Service was perfect - not too much or too little. And everyone was quite personable. The food was what we expected it to be - perfectly cooked and superb flavors. I had the lamb and don’t recall if I’ve ever had a more tasty rack of lamb. My husband started with the lobster bisque - it too had such a wonderful flavor I’d be happy to have that, a slice of bread and a nice glass of wine! Truly a superb dinner and experience.
