We were much enjoyed our meals, ambiance and service at this seaside location. Our guests were from Asia and we're impressed with this choice for dinner. We had no problems with anything. I want to go back in the daylight to have lunch as the view will be fantastic!

A casual restaurant with lots of history. The patio provides great ocean views. The dining room opens up to a balcony for even more seating options. Service is fantastic... attentive and timely. With all that going for it, the food excellent, adventurous and feeds a small army. The only thing they work in cleaning up is their bathrooms... yuck!

The location is great and probably what makes it so popular. We were seated at 11:40 and told we could order lunch (starting at 12pm on weekend), but that our order wouldn't go in until 12pm and then food would be delivered 15 min later. Seeing as we had two hungry toddlers with us, we opted to stick with brunch... More

Nice views and great ambiance. People were very kind. I had the fishtaco which were fine but not the best (the fish was actually a bit dry). I did not make reservations, but could have lunch there after a ten minute wait.

Dinner this evening was delicious. The location above the cliff is lovely although it was extremely foggy tonight. The staff were friendly, professional and very attentive. We were not shunned for drinking only water ( no wine) and our hot and cold water was cheerily replenished. Our starter salad of delicious artisan lettuce with squash, blue cheese, candied pecans and... More

This place offers unparalleled views of the La Jolla Cove. The prices and quality for food and drinks are quite reasonable considering it's a touristy spot. There is usually a short wait there, but the staff is very friendly and cooperative.

Corned beef hash and horseradish cream over breakfast potatoes was exceptional. The cinnamon roll pancakes were light and perfect. Service was exceptional as was the view.

Had the chance to enjoy Coast Toast and a Virgin Mary with a fabulous view of La Jolla cove today. The food and view were as good as ever but it was the staff that made things even better than ever. Steven waited on my table of one attentively and politely yet let me enjoy my brunch peacefully, too. Just... More

The chowder was great. Cheese plate was ok, figs were really good. I had the sea bass, it was good however needed some salt. Waiters were wonderful and very knowledgeable. It was cold out but we sat on the patio. Windows were closed and they had heaters so it was quite comfortable.

This is in an 1890's home that looks out over the water. Some tables look over the water (you can reserve one) and some are outside (where there are heaters), while the rest are perfectly fine indoors. The food is carefully prepared, tasty, and served by a patient and knowledgeable staff.
