We had dinner with friends. Excellent menu, big variety - we chose lobster menu which is served on Sundays and Mondays. Food was nicely presented and it was very tasty. Very good service. Expensive but worth every penny. Recommended

What a treat, what a view & what a delight to have been treated to a bday meal at The Marine Room! We had the crab cake over soba noodle starter, the Bibb lettuce with goat cheese brûlée before we moved on to our mains. The size of the starters are very good. We could have easily just shared one... More

Marine Room has great food, but it's really the view you're there for. Sitting right on top of the waves!

We had a memorable dinner at the Marine Room last week. We dined on Sunday night and chose to order off the lobster menu. The lobster bisque was fantastic. It was a large portion of a rich and flavorful bisque. Next came a lobster tail dusted with pistachio crumbs. So good. Dessert was a trio of three different desserts-each one... More

Marine room would have been terrific. . . if it were half the price. I found the setting gorgeous and the service excellent; but the price was simply not worth it. There are better places to go with good views.

We had an excellent experience at the Marine Room last night. First, the service and attention was great and probably set the tone for the evening. The appetizers, the trio & the crab cake were delicious, and perfect size (not very big). We tried the lobster bisque soup and truffle-mushroom soup both very tasty and rich. The wine selection (Amarone,... More

We dined here as part of a "dine around" for a corporate incentive trip that I attended in Carlsbad. We had a private room in the back that was right on the water. We had plenty of seafood appetizers, which were all delicious. I chose the Pistachio Lobster Tail for my main course and was not disappointed. For dessert I... More

The Marine Room consistently provides breathtaking views and amazing food. You cannot miss the target here. The food is always fresh and wonderful. I find the menu to be creative but simple and accessible- Some restaurants want to impress you with all sorts of ingredients and methods you have never heard of, these guys just want you to love their...
