The Marine Room

For more than 70 years, celebrities, world figures, residents and visitors have made it a tradition to come to The Marine Room to enjoy its spectacular seaside panorama and inspired cuisine: from fresh seafood to unique and inventive seasonal dishes. The combination has made it one of San Diego’s best restaurants and one of the region’s most iconic dining destinations.

Since its opening in 1941, The Marine Room has become famous for the pounding surf that creates dramatic displays outside the restaurant windows. And today, award-winning Executive Chef Bernard Guillas and his team of tastemakers have introduced a culinary renaissance in La Jolla, with inspired dishes like Skuna Bay Salmon, Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna, Angus Beef Filet Mignon and Cervena Elk Loin. The imaginative cuisine is more than matched by the up-close view of the surf. All tables, both window-side and elevated booths, offer reach-out-and-almost-touch views of the incoming water. And patrons seated window-side during an unusually high tide can savor the food as plumes of surf cascade off windows only a few inches away.
