Marine Room

Modern American in La Jolla

Yet another only-in-La Jolla experience. When money is no object and you want high-drama cooking and views, book a sunset table at this clubby dining room outside the town center. You’ll feast on highly stylized contemporary-fusion meats and seafood, while waves splash against the window at high tide. The sizable wine and cocktail menu is dizzying.

Happy hour in the lounge takes place Sun through Fri between 4pm and 6pm, offering discounted cocktails. Or get involved in lobster night on Sunday and Mondays evenings, offering a three-course lobster supper from $60 a head. Cooking classes take place here in the spring.
