We had made reservations for our Valentines Day Dinner at Splashes months in advance. Before we made the reservations we read a few reviews and looked at the menu to make sure it was food we would like. When we called to make the reservation they did not tell us it was a set meal. Unfortunately the menu had few... More

While the restaurant is fine as a location, the bar is one level down, and sits right over the beach with the waves rolling in right below where you sit. The drinks were good, the bartenders excellent...and we sat outside where there are heaters and a glass wall. Wow, terrific. The food was fine, not great, and was a bit... More

We ate breakfast here. You don't need a reservation for breakfast but make sure you have one for dinner. We kind of assumed we could get in for dinner because we were staying at the hotel. They were booked solid. Next time we will make a reservation. The food at breakfast was great and the view was amazing! Our waitress... More

We had a lovely breakfast at the perfect table - almost felt like we were in the sand. Our meals were inventive but still yummy and the service was great. Will be back.

Although this has been one of our favorite restaurants in Orange County for many years, our experience for brunch on 2/11 left us with disappointment. I ordered steak & eggs (steak to be medium). It arrived and could best be described as rare. The wine, a super Tuscan, was great, and my other guests enjoyed their food. However, my wife... More

Service is good, food is ordinary. And to get to 100 characters, I must add - parking can be a challenge.

Had a table reserved, but decided to eat at the bar (best view of ocean). The bartender, Ken, was spot on in his food recommendations. The Octopus and Oysters were fantastic. Great all-around experience!

We've eaten at Splashes several times and have always been very happy with the food, service and drinks. I wish the prices were a tad more reasonable. Steps away at their bar you can get the same quality of food for a portion of the price from the same kitchen.
