We ate recently as a family of six and the whole experience rates as one of our most memorable meals ever. We chose six different meals and each one was exquisite - starters, mains and desserts - looking and tasting wonderful. The staff were pleasant and efficient and as we ate we watched the sun set and the tide come... More

Ate here last night. The food was fantastic, 'fine dining', beautifully presented and imaginative. However, I wasn't impressed by the venue, although situated right on the beach with lovely views ( all indoors), it seemed old fashioned. On the surface, service would seem good but I felt it was well rehearsed rather than sincere. We had finished two courses and... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at the Marine three different times over the last four years. They have been in different months, on different days of the week and in both groups and as a couple. Every time has been consistently well done. The staff is attentive, the food is always excellent and served in innovative ways and... More

Business dinner with large group could not have been better. The menu choices and presentation was first class; location in the high tide surf was even better. Service was outstanding. This is a must stop when visiting La Jolla.

My husband and I went to Marine Room for dinner to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. All I have to say: amazing! We were immediately impressed with the service, from the person greeting us at the entrance, the hostess was great, as was our waiter. We showed up about 45 minutes early, but got our table right away (I have... More

A lovely setting for a birthday meal. Everything excellently prepared and served. One small error immediately corrected without even asking. Would prefer they enforce dress code though.

Expensive, elegant restaurant. Outstanding service. Excellent food. I don't usually eat at such extravagant places but was drawn by the view. Beautiful sunset. Expensive but worth it.

My friend Travis who is the owner of Luke's in Singapore, suggested we visit the Marine Room in La Jolla. A group of 10 people from 5 different nationalities went there for a Saturday night dinner - and we made sure we got there in time to experience the sun set. The Marine Room restaurant is literally situated on the... More
