Diner Reviews
  • "We went to this lovely restaurant for my husbands 60th birthday. The service was good, the staff very friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent . The only downside is the parking. It is awful!! We were 45 minutes late for our reservation because we could not find parking for two cars and when we did it cost us $15 per car!! This is outrageous and because of it, we probably won't be going back to this lovely place. By the time we finally got to the restaurant we were totally frustrated. It's not their fault but beware and give yourself plenty of time for the parking nightmare. Also, they gave my husband a beautiful complimentary dessert for his birthday."

  • "Restaurant has a very nice outdoor patio, which is what attracted us to it, but the food choices are very limited and heavily skewed towards beef. Which is great if you eat beef, but not if you don't. The only non-beef "Mediterranean" choice was Chicken Shish Kebab. Food we had was bland and unremarkable. We will not be going back."

  • "We frequent GG 's for a number of reasons. We enjoy Mediterranean food, especially middle eastern and because the restaurant is owned by families from Turkey we know it is authentic. We love sitting on the patio especially on summer evenings. "

  • "We were overcharged for some of the items on our bill (for example, a kid's meal is not $8 - at least not according to the menu). Also, the happy hour cadillac margarita is much different than the regularly priced cadillac margarita. I can say this because I tried both and the happy hour cadillac margarita is missing a key ingredient, grand marnier. Won't go back, lots of other places have much better food, service and won't overcharge you."

  • "We went to GG's before attending the Pageant of the Master's which was 3/4 of a mile away. Perfect location for us all to meet up. The food was very good (Dolmades -sp?- were awesome) and very reasonably priced. The waitress was engaging and professional. Food was served quickly and with good timing between courses. I will go back!"

  • "The food was very good. Only objection to the outdoor patio seating is that the smoke wafts over from a smoking area on the same level a few feet away. A cigar odor was very strong. We didn't look at inside seating because it looked dark and it is usually noisier inside . The view is the street scene in Laguna which is good for people watching if one doesn't mind all the traffic."

  • "In the heart of all the Laguna Beach action, G'G's offers very good food and ambience and a great Happy Hour with very reasonable drinks and appetizers which help make dining at G'G's a great experience."

  • "I am so sorry we found GG's our last night in town. By far the BEST meal of the week. We had a party of 6 and everyone raved about their dinners and appetizers. This was the FIRST restaurant we found in our week long stay that had a actual gluten free menu and not just a server pointing out a few things on a regular menu. Gluten free fettuccine Alfredo....amazing!!"

  • "Have a cab drop you off here and walk in either direction after your meal to find the art and dining and shopping that Laguna Beach is noted for."

  • "Decor was very cheap looking. Served a can of pepsi for $3. Very unimpressed. Paper liners on the table felt like a doctors office. Food was ok I guess but not worth the price. Very in attentive. For being valentines day we we the only table there at 6 pm inside. Everyone else was seated outdoors. We finished by 640. They seated 5-10 more tables at 7 inside before checking on us again close to 715."

  • "Food was excellent. My wife and I could have just had the appetizers. Took food home. Table wine was a BV Cabernet for $5. Delicious. We will go back."

  • "The only negative that I can write is that it was really cold! Not having been to GG's before, we made a reservation not knowing there was indoor and outdoor seating. The table we were given was outside and it was COLD! I would have liked for someone to have asked if we wanted inside or outside, but they didn't. Food was fantastic! I will definitely go back during the summer."

Nice bar. Larger outdoor patio/sidewalk dining. Family owned. In the heart of Laguna Beach. Parking in public lot through rear entrance of small plaza w galleries, shops."
