Wonderful food, including fancy sandwiches and salads, that ladies enjoy for lunch. Sitting outside right along the coast is fantastic. I have eaten there twice and had marvelous experience both times.

Wonderful service, very good food, a great lunch place during the week when it is not crowded. Prices are high, but it is worth it for the environment that you are in at this find Laguna Beach staple fine dining restaurant.

We simply love dining here. The staff is always welcoming, unpretentious, yet sophisticated. The food is always delightful. The view of the ocean is amazing, nothing obstructing the diner from having the ocean right outside your table. The service is outstanding. Ryan and Juan delighted us with their service level, they are great assets to this property. The staff is... More

Iam a Local and if I have out of town guests who want a special moment, I take them to Splashes for a window table 30 min before sunset. Everyone is amazed and so appreciative to be there. But you have to get there early to get one of those 4 tables. It is a little pricy but worth the... More

Went to this restaurant for a dining experience with my wife. Food was pricey, I ordered the King Salmon and it was VERY salty. I was taken aback by how salty it was. Wife ordered ravioli, it was not anything special. However, the bread pudding desert was a great surrpise, I would recommend it.

Did not care about price, just wanted to be spoiled. Good level of noise as well, as some places can be noisy. Did not feel rushed and left and went for... More

We hadn't been since the renovation and missed the former casual Cali vibe of this hotel and restaurant. It's weird to order a $200 bottle of wine and nice dinner and watch a parade of people in their bathing suits walk through from the pool....not good for the appetite.

My brother made the arrangements, but we had 40 guests, including the guest of honor (in a wheelchair) and his wife of almost 73 years, all their children, all their grandchildren, and all 17 great-grandchildren, plus all the spouses, for dinner! We took over the inside dining area at 5:00 and were finishing birthday cake by 7:15. The wait staff... More
