The guacamole is very good. I tried a jalapeno margarita and it was quite interesting. The seafood is fresh and delicious. They do not take reservations for outside seating, but I would recommend you make reservations if you want to eat there. The service was very good, too. We went 2 nights in a row so that should tell you... More

Had reservations on a busy sat night. Wife and I were seated in the walkway between the inner and outer table regions. Clearly they lump the louder family groups in the inner area, and couples and groups without kids closer to windows. So we didn't get a great view and often times had waitstaff rushing by us or standing next... More

While on business myself and several co-workers visited Las Brisas in Laguna Beach and the surrounding area. I am from the east coast so the views, the weather, the people and the wonderful food at Las Brisas was like a small slice of heaven here on earth. We enjoy our time and our meal at Las Brisas. The staff were... More

View amazing but of course it's the ocean. I don't understand what all the hype is? The food is average, service is ok but to wait forever for that? There are many other gems with a view, amazing food, service and doesn't break the bank.

Service is spectacular. The views are amazing. The food is well-prepared and very well presented. The Tequila and Gauc made it even better. It was a little bit of a drive from OC but thats why you get a rental car when in California.

We sat out on the patio which was the most popular place to sit. You just have to walk around and watch for a table to open but it was worth it. The food was fantastic and our waitress was very friendly and helpful.

The view was the best part about the evening. It was very busy and the servers were running around crazy. The tequila was wonderful and a terrific place to go for drinks and a munchies - beyond that I would not go.

Las Brisas is a great place to eat on the beach in Laguna. The food is good and the service is better. The view from our window table was fantastic.
