This restaurant is in the La Jolla Shores Hotel, formerly The Sea Lodge. Beware the parking charges! $12 for 1 hour 59 minutes, and $24 for 2 hours and 1 minute! A restaurant validation will only reduce the parking charge by $5, no matter how...More

A $95 dinner + $17 parking fee (including the $5 validation from restaurant) divided by 3 hours spent in the restaurant = $37 an hour. This is much too high a price for this casual restaurant. Do they really expect restaurant guests to park on...More

This is a hotel restaurant on a lovely beach. The staff and service were professional and attentive. The food was good but not fine dining. But then again you don't come with shorts and flip flops for fine dining... you come from the beach and...More
