Due to circumstances, we had lunch to celebrate our anniversary. The view of the waves at lunch, made in worthwhile, because evenings in January are not the best for seeing the beach, unless you are lucky enough to get a sunset. The food was great (I am a big fan of mahi-mahi) the waitress was fairly attentive (she kept my water glass full, which is a great thing for me. It was fairly quiet, which made the romantic lunch, nice. We would go again. The only drawback to me was that the menu said broccolini, which was what I wanted, and the plate came out with asparagus, which I would have asked to change, if the menu had said it. The waitress brought some broccolini, but I was pretty much done with my meal when it came.

Great food. I had fish tacos and ginger dumplings which were excellent. Food is all fresh from local farms and the view on beach is amazing. It’s a must try in La Jolla if you love fresh food with great options.

The food and presentation are exceptional, and of course, you can't beat the view and activity of La Jolla Shores. Parking under the building is so convenient, with one hour comped. Just wish it was for two hours, since it's rather expensive per hour, and one hour is not enough to really enjoy the food, view and each other.

Christmas Buffet was not good. The food selection is small, much of it was for breakfast but this was diner, the quality was average, but the price was high. Disappointing...

The Christmas Day buffet was fantastic. It’s a bit pricey, but felt worth it given the ocean views and delicious food.
