The Marine Room, Elegant Dining on the Surf

Several months ago, my husband retired from the corporate world, and he and I made a list of special things we would do to celebrate retirement.  You see, I retired, also.  Yay!  Our list includes day trips outside of San Diego, checking off visits to american presidential sites (to be featured in a future blog), a river cruise in China and other faraway destinations, and dining at awesome places in my town like the Marine Room.

The Marine Room is known for its calm or dramatic landscape, depending on when you choose to dine. Opened in 1941, this place quickly became famous for its pounding surf crashing against its panoramic windows for diners to enjoy, and for its award-winning cuisine.  It kind of takes your breath away as you descend the stairs from the restaurant lobby, and see that this place is actually on the beautiful La Jolla Shores.

At the Marine Room, every meal is a special occasion.  Diners will enjoy this rare blend of culinary excellence, uncompromising service and beachfront setting.  Simply stated, this is fine dining at its finest.

With every tide comes a new experience.  The view only gets better during High Tide Dinners, when the tide brings the surf to the picture windows.  Always check the restaurant website at for high tide information.

Experience elegant relaxation at the bar and lounge before or after your meal.  You can select hor d'oeuvres, creative small plates, specialty drinks, classic favorites and spectacular high tide views.  Be entertained by the beachgoers as they paddleboard, kayak, swim, surf ...............

.............or watch them just simply relax on the beach.
The Marine Room is located next to its sister property, the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club.  Diners are invited to spend a night or two at this treasured beachfront resort.  Combined, these two properties are one of California's gems along its sparkling coastline.

When you dine here, you're not reserving a table.  You're joining a 70-year tradition.

The Marine Room has won numerous awards and recognition over the years.  They recently received the 2013 AAA Four Diamond Award.  This recognition is given to less than 3% of AAA's reviewed restaurants.
