The Marine Room, La Jolla, CA

I had a lovely birthday dinner here.  I ordered their signature special which included a filet mignon with lobster, mashed potatoes and multi-colored carrots.  There was a steak sauce provided for the steak and a wine lemon butter sauce for the lobster.  The view is really worth coming for.  The building sits right on the beach so the waves look like they are coming right up to the wondows.  So beautiful and romantic.  They turn on the outside lights at night so you can continue to watch the birds, boats and waves outside.  This is a nice establishment with a bar, event area and valet only parking.  Great for impressing anyone you’d like to take out for sure.  Be prepared to come in with blazer or sunday best.  Some reviews complained of snobby waiters and hostesses but I encountered nothing like that.  I was treated like a queen.  Treat the staff like normal people and they will be kind.

Revision 08/29/2017 – When my mother came into town I recommended this place for her birthday.  We didn’t get to sit next to the window as I was able to do a few month’s prior (even with reservation) but we had a fun time regardless.  She ordered the absinthe lobster, my father had the salmon and I had the chicken with cherry sauce.  The mushroom soup ended up being the winner for the night, and even beat my lobster bisque.  The desserts were also phenomenal.  Mom received a free berry tort with chocolate straw and Dad and I shared the ice cream coffee cake.  We all left stuffed and happy!

Date destination – Yes.  Don’t hesitate if you can afford it, although prices are quite high for everything here.  Check out the menus attached to see if you can afford a $100-$200 bill.
