    The food and service were excellent as was the unobstructed ocean view. If you're going for the reduced price happy hour cocktails, make sure to ask whether you're in the right part of the restaurant.

    The grilled shrimp and crab Caesar salad is a healthy and delicious choice. Get complimentary champagne with the Sunday brunch entree.

    Crab stuffed fish is my fave dish, right behind the salmon. But you really cannot go wrong with any dish as everything is so fresh and tasty. Still some of the best margaritas in La Jolla!
