Staff were very accommodating, we arrived almost close to closing but we did not feel rushed to dine. Loved that cheese platter with the wine. Great selection for breakfast as well, eggs tasted really fresh as well as the vegetables that came with the omelet. Enjoyed that water view while dining.

We were staying at the Hotel La Jolla and were exhausted after a full day at the SD Zoo, so we walked up for dinner. Probably better suited for an adult dinner, but they were very accommodating to our little ones. Kids had chicken tenders with broccolini. First course was pork belly and san Sebastian flatbread, very good. Second course... More

The staff in the restaurant made our weekend. We had so much fun, I cannot wait to have a reason to celebrate and go back... And the view of the sunset and the fresh halibut was pretty amazing, too.

Took a big party here for dinner. The food and service are great and so is the view. Lots of choices for everyone in the group. Great service and wine.

Best meal we had on our San Diego trip. The sunset view is spectacular. The food was great. Age 7 to 79 enjoyed the meal. Most amazing bathroom ever. Windows behind the sinks. I would definitely return and I would consider staying there as it is on the top floor of a hotel.

We enjoyed dinner at Cusp on a recommendation from our concierge while in La Jolla. The service was good and the restaurant is nice but not overly dressy. There were many people in jeans and casual clothes. Some were dressed up too. The food was great and our party of 8 ordered a variety of items from the menu. The... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant in its current rendition. (This restaurant has had former names under different and earlier managements.) First of all, the restaurant, on the top floor of its host hotel, has a world-class view of the La Jolla Shores area. That is a clear plus. Particularly on a nice sunny day. Our party of... More

Dining at Cusp is a treat for your senses. Enjoy coastal Mediterranean fare with an emphasis on fresh seafood like grilled salmon crusted in Moroccan spices or albacore roasted to perfection. Rustic flatbreads from our pizza oven and savory sides compliment our fresh pastas and entrées. Try our ocean-fresh ceviche or raw bar while sipping a cocktail made with our housemade infused spirits and fresh juices. Savor Chef Ingrid's flavorful dishes, chat with friends, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific from our 11th floor dining room. Not just for special occasions (but perfect for that, too), Cusp is your neighborhood spot. Stylish and relaxed, Cusp is the place to chill out with your friends while enjoying craft cocktails and creative cuisine-the stellar view is on the house. Daily Happy Hour from 4-7.
