There are lot of choices for great food in La Jolla, and this restaurant should be high on the list. Tasty and creative dishes served by a very helpful and accommodating staff.

This restaurant, on the eleventh floor of the hotel, has spectacular ocean views and even more spectacular food. Breakfast was really good but the appetizers the Cusp chef furnished for our wedding cocktail hour were sensational. The actual wedding took place at Scripps Institute, but...More

The service was so great - very attentive staff and the food was quickly provided. We both found the smokey ceasar salad too smokey! The crab tostada was very good. The scallops were great but the tuna was lacking seasoning. Overall, a good experience though.

The 11th floor views are great during daylight, but at night you see nothing. The food is fine but not great, the service is good but not great. Nothing on the menu is exciting. It can get very noisy when the bar section is crowded.

We were pleasantly surprised by the Cusp restaurant which is on the 11th (top) floor of the Hotel La Jolla. The food was a real cut above most hotel restaurants and priced moderately. The restaurant faces the ocean so the views are spectacular. The staff...More

My guess is that there is but that it changes daily. Best to call the day you want to go.

Dining at Cusp is a treat for your senses. Enjoy coastal Mediterranean fare with an emphasis on fresh seafood like grilled salmon crusted in Moroccan spices or albacore roasted to perfection. Rustic flatbreads from our pizza oven and savory sides compliment our fresh pastas and entrées. Try our ocean-fresh ceviche or raw bar while sipping a cocktail made with our housemade infused spirits and fresh juices. Savor Chef Ingrid's flavorful dishes, chat with friends, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific from our 11th floor dining room. Not just for special occasions (but perfect for that, too), Cusp is your neighborhood spot. Stylish and relaxed, Cusp is the place to chill out with your friends while enjoying craft cocktails and creative cuisine-the stellar view is on the house. Daily Happy Hour from 4-7.
