"Excellent as usual. Only problem is I really dislike your new parking policy as it extremely hard to pay as you leave because it's on an incline!!! I think it's dangerous! I think someone is going to fall or worse, when they have to get out of their car door to insert a card!"

"My husband and I decided to go to the Shores for their Easter Brunch while visiting La Jolla. Overall the food was okay with many selections. but was a bit overpriced. The service could have been better. I had to try to wave someone down to get a glass of water. I was surprised at this because on past visits the servers had been very attentive.
The main draw is the view and of course much can be forgiven because of that!

"This was our first visit to the Shores. It is the restaurant for a sizable hotel/motel located along the beach front. As a result, it was very busy, somewhat crowded and a little loud. The staff was friendly but was challenged trying to keep up with all of the customers. The food was very good. It was not clear from the website that brunch was a pre-fix per person buffet. The site has a brunch menu with separately-priced items. Sunday Brunch, however, is a $49/person buffet. Parking is at a premium along the beach so we payed for parking in the hotel garage. We ended up paying $4, after receiving a $5 parking credit from the restaurant."

"We came from Scottsdale Arizona and wanted a special brunch. There were people from the pool area and lots of children. The view was nice, the food was pretty average. The prime rib was tough and ham was cold. I felt it was overpriced ar $50.00 a person."

"I have lived in La Jolla for 35 years and have been a researcher at UCSD for just about as many years. We have been going to the restaurant and hotel since first moving here. Mr. Kellogg was generous to give me 2- 3 day stay at the hotel for my fundraiser for Casa De Amparo. I had my rehearsal dinner there with several of the guests staying at the hotel. I had my students for my UCSD workshop stay there several times, and for the last few years, participants of our yearly LIPIDMAPS meeting held at Scripps stay there."

"Buffet brunch was good, nothing particularly memorable. Service was inattentive. Waiter himself was poor. Parking was advertised as free and is not, it's validated for $5."

"Parking should be free as in the past. The restaurant was busy and therefore the service was slow. The one hour free parking was not suffiient for our party of three. Make it 90 minutes t least!"

"There were 5 of us in our group, and the restaurant was great at handling our reservation and changes last minute. The food was excellent. The only small thing I want to mention was that service was slow, and we were apologized to several times during the course of the evening. Other than that, everything went very smoothly."

"The place is right on the beach and even at night you get a great view of the water. The food was not that great though. I will say that they had a limited menu because it was on Valentine's Day so I didn't get to try something I would normally order but it just seemed like everything I had was under seasoned. The staff was nice, especially the Manager, but at one point I had to hunt down a server to get a fork I was never given. I had a nice enough time but when I'm paying $150 for two (not including drinks) I expect the food to be above average."

"The servers were friendly and accommodating. We had a window seat and came early to get it. A large group came in and sat next to us. Our two tables were the only ones in use in that section of the restaurant. The group next to us was loud and we couldn't enjoy our conversation. I would recommend taking a booth in the other section of the restaurant. They have the same view but are more quiet. There were only two meat choices on the lunch menu, salmon and an angus beef hamburger. The burger wasn't tasty. It was bland. We had coffee, but had to wait for our cups to be filled. It's a great place to go for a view on a beautiful day, but I wouldn't expect exceptional food."

"Caleb was very helpful and was willing to find answers to any questions about our meal if he was not sure. My husband is gluten free and has to be very careful about what he can and cannot eat. Caleb always came back with an answer and was very attentive during the whole meal. The Shores has a wonderful employee in Caleb. We will be sure to ask for him the next time we dine there."

"Since my last meal at the Shores the prices have increased and now you must pay for parking after the first hour. I understand that their location requires them to protect their parking spaces...I was just surprised. The view continues to be what this restaurant is all about and it is spectacular. You think you're on the beach. The food was a disappointment and over priced in my estimation."
