The Shores Restaurant - La Jolla Shores Hotel
Everything great in restaurant - service, food, ambiance, pace. After parking validation, still had to pay $10 because stayed 45 minutes over their time placed on parking ticket. x 2 cars. Ruined an otherwise great experience. Ask to have Susana wait on you - they are all great, she is superb.
Great place table facing the ocean. Service was superb. The meal was excellent. From the salad to the fish tacos to the sea bass to the cream brûlée. The only problem was a very loud lady on the table next to us that we learn all of her life story. But that was no fault of the restaurant
I have been here several times for lunch and dinner. The food is always delicious. The view can't be beat! The service has always been impeccable. This is truly a hidden gem!
The restaurant is in the hotel and I was leery. Hotels don’t always have the best food. But my hesitation was not warranted. The food was great Lee my server was awesome and you can beet the sunset view
The view is amazing, great service. The Eggs Benedict and blood orange mimosa was a great brunch.
Waiter brought wrong cocktail, food was a bit pricey for the portions. Garlic mashed potatoes tasted like they came out of a box!! Sad...
We were out for a light meal and thought the menu looked promising. We ordered soup, a hamburger and fish tacos. All were tasty but the soup was cool and the tacos soggy. The meal “lacked greatness “
Best secret in town! Like a beach club grill, without the high membership fee. ❤️❤️
A special gathering of friends reuniting.
Excellent food and decor, located directly on the beach.
I would not recommend it to anyone. There is no signage for finding the restaurant from the parking garage. I have back trouble; walking is extremely painful. We walked for miles, it felt as if, before some kid told us to go to the lobby (which we couldn't find either) and ask. He knew where the lobby was and guided us to it. From there we tried to find the restaurant as there was no one at the desk. Finally someone appeared and gave us directions. I was almost in tears the pain was so severe. We were seated at a window table but there were two large parties near us. They were so loud I had to remove my hearing aids. The service was incredibly slow; our parking was for an hour and a half; we were at the table over two hours with no dessert or coffee and we had split a Caesar salad; my husband had cioppino, and I had the Crab, Lobster and shrimp sandwich. The food was good; the service slow and the restaurant was almost empty so there was no excuse. The trip to the restaurant from the parking garage is most unattractive. Signs would have made a major difference. It was the 60th anniversary of our first date and the experience put us both in bad moods. Not a successful celebration, to say the least.
Noisy, expensive, overcharged for parking.
Lovely casual spot - on the weekend crab. Nice service and delicious fodd
A table with a view. Yummy food and the whales were swimming by us today. Very nice!
First the view of the ocean and sunset was fantastic.
The salmon must moist and well prepared. There were several vegetarian options and I enjoyed the beet capriccio salad.
The hostess suggested flourless chocolate cake for dessert and it is not to be missed. We shared it and left feeling pleasantly stuffed.
My wife and I have been going to The Shores since 2006. At first, we just went there for birthdays, holiday brunch or other special occasions. Now we go there often. Even though we live in La Jolla, That view never gets old, and since they change up the menu at least quarterly, the menu never tires either.
Great service and good food. Well stocked bar. Incredible view.
