Diner Reviews
  • "Have been to Rockin' Fish many times since they opened several years ago, and they have maintained a superb level of cuisine and the service, from the hostess to the wait staff and support staff, is exemplary--best service in Laguna. We had our special table for 2 on the balcony outside and the nicest waiter who was perfect--there when we needed him, anticipating when that would be, and letting us have a leisurely cocktail/appetizer/entree on a busy Sat night. Popcorn shrimp was the freshest and crispiest and tasteful we've ever had--highly recommend starting with it, although there's a lot and it's filling. We love this restaurant. One of the best and most consistent in Laguna Beach."

  • "I found the food to be good and the service excellent. I was lucky enough to get the table for two outside in its own private area."

  • "The decor was a little antiseptic, especially for Laguna. They would do well to personalize it a bit more to make it feel like it belongs there. That being said the quality and taste of the food was very good. The steaks were good quality and the Salmon was perfectly cooked. Our waiter was very attentive and personable. While there are "cooler" places to go in Laguna, you won't be disappointed in the food!"

  • "We had high hopes but just weren't impressed. We were seated quickly and promptly forgotten. A table near us was seated about 10 minutes after us and was waited on before a waitress finally passed by and asked "Have you been helped yet"? Two mistakes on the order, we never received one of the appetizers we wanted. If the waitress had come by anytime between when we placed our order and the entree was served, that mistake would have been caught. Fish & Chips were heavily battered. Spicy Mac & Cheese was just noddles with cheese melted on top and a lot of white pepper?"

  • "Blaring sun at our table with a reservation for a 40th anniversary on a Monday night. They were just plain not accommodating about moving us. They wouldn't switch us to another empty same size table, because they said it was reserved. Didn't we have a reservation? The manager (who was about 12 it seemed) said she had nowhere else to move us. I asked if we could move when another table opened and she said okay, but that probably wouldn't be for a while. 5 minutes later a table opened, but the manager never returned. Finally I asked the waitress to move us, which she did. Later the place comped us a bread pudding dessert. Great food but the management is totally inexperienced and horrible."

  • "Visited them in Laguna Beach for the first time this weekend and was very pleasantly surprised. We got a wonderful table with an ocean view (they honored our request!) and the staff was pleasant and friendly without being overbearing. In terms of food, if you took away the "chain restaurant" feel of Gladstones and then threw in a little New Orleans flavor you'd be right on point. Solid food- much better than they could get away with given the location."

  • "Great neighborhood gem! Good food at very reasonable prices. We had the lobster tail and top sirloin special at under $30 per! And our service from Shawn was outstanding. I'll definitely go back!"

  • "We loved our visit to Rock'n Fish. The menu choices are vast so there's something for everyone and the prices were reasonable. The food we ordered was excellent and plentyful. Great bar setting with live music that could be heard from most places in the resturant - not annoying at all. We'll definitely go back the next time we're in town."

  • "4th visit to Rock'N Fish. Service is as good as always. 5:15pm reservations, very nice reception and table was ready. Service was friendly and prompt but not overbearing. Food was a s good as it can get. Burgers are tops, fish dishes are very well prepared. Wine by the glass is very nice for wine lovers......nice selections. My blacken salmon burger was amazing. Fish N Chips was great......our 6 party group loved the sweet potato fries! Fresh halibut was as good as it gets. Will be back again and again and again!"

  • "The food at Rock'N Fish ROCKS. The steamers with Andouille sausage was out of this world. The clams were tender and the broth delicious. It came with excellent bread for dipping that was great without dipping! Our dinners were perfectly cooked and delicious. Our server, Chris was friendly, attentive, and always smiling. Negatives: they did not honor our request for a table by the window though I made the reservation 1 month in advance. It was our anniversary and none of the staff congratulated us. It was warm inside and they did not have the A/C on. Rock'N Fish does not have an ocean view. It is on the opposite side of the street as the ocean and the building is not high enough to see over the building on the ocean side of the street."

  • "Location is a strength, attentive service for a large table size (including kids), breath of menu + quality of food very good & prepared well for the selections we ordered (excellent salads!), ambience draws more from corner location + surrounding neighborhood buzz rather than from (nicely done) interior of restaurant itself.....that said appreciated that noise level allowed for engaging conversation across all the dinner party attendees. I must say, we hosted family visiting OC and very pleasant dinner experience, particularly when considering value of price (7 in party) and location to Laguna's city center & beach."

  • "This is my go to place when I've got out of town guests and we are in Laguna. It's consistently good food and service and not too expensive"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My wife and I picked the restaurant from an OpenTable search. All in all, things worked out great -- witness the rating. Just a couple of weaknesses: (1) not too many spots in the restaurant will give you an actual ocean view; and (2) my wife and I initially got no view at all -- somehow, the hostess decided to tuck us away at a tiny table next to a wall. With respect to #2, I understand that they must have had a lot of reservations on the books. However, the bar area was mostly empty with plenty of seating and a full menu -- that's where we ended up. The food was great and the bar had plenty of options for a nice night out."

  • "Went to dinner there for a special occasion, romantic birthday dinner, and I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful time and very romantic dinner for two. Thank you for making our night special."

  • "My boyfriend and I popped in an hour before our reservation and they sat us right away on a private balcony with a beach view. The special halibut was amazing as was the scenery. Must try!"

  • "Great food and comfortable location with beautiful views of Laguna Beach"

  • "What I liked the most is the location, smack dab in the middle of 'downtown' Laguna Beach, across the PCH from the ocean. The food is good, not great. The service is wonderful, with staff really friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The Beef ribs left a lot to be desired; they were overcooked and mushy. The steamed clams were excellent, the broth was very different and the cheese toast sopped it up. I would have liked a few more clams for the price. The Swordfish was wonderful, perfectly cooked and the dipping sauce was super. The wedge salad was great cold and crisp and plenty for two. The Key Lime Pie for dessert was the perfect finishing touch. The view at sunset was wonderful and the service was outstanding. Our server was there when we needed her but was not hovering. I noticed that all the servers circled the room frequently and took care of any requests that any customers had whether it was their table or not. Noise got louder later in the evening."

  • "I find myself dining here every time I visit Laguna Beach and always leave satisfied. I went surf and turf on my first visit but went all seafood since. For those seeking numerous perfectly grilled seafood selections, you found the right place. The friendly service compliments the experience and offers personal advice on suggesting items. I have yet to have any reason to consider going some place else for dinner."

  • "The restaurant was great and the waitress was awesome. We did ask for a larger table and the hostess said she was reserving it for 5 tops or more, however, she sat 2 tops there pretty much right after our request. The table was a bit tight that we were at and we could have used a bigger booth. "

  • "Went for Mother's day and it wasn't hectic. Nice, casual meal with a view of the ocean, but mostly of all the people on the streets of Laguna on a beautiful Sunday! Parking was a challenge because it was a great day and the beach was packed. Add some time to find parking. Usually the paid lots are available, but not always!"

  • "My husband and I have been here, just the two of us. This time, we brought our daughter and son-in-law to celebrate her birthday, and it certainly lived up to our expectations, and theirs. We would classify them as "foodies", and they loved the menus choices, as well as the wide selection of beers. Our server, Stacy, was right there when we needed her, without "hovering." Our party ordered the calimari (best I've had) and the oysters for appetizers. We had the hangar steak, the stuffed salmon (the risotto was excellent), the signature New Orleans BBQ shrimp, and the seafood jambalaya. Everything was great! We finished our meal by sharing the Sticky Toffee Pudding and Warm Chocolate Lava Cake A la Mode. Amazing!!"

  • "Wait staff was very accommodating and service very good. Unfortunately the meal was marginal. The wedge salad tasted sour and presentation was horrible. My salad chopped with chicken was good, a little warm but not fabulous. Atmosphere dark, mostly tourists, a little depressing even though you can see the ocean. We asked if Chef was here, Sous Chef was cooking that evening. We are locals and for the amount of money will probably go to one of our regular haunts in Laguna."

  • "Good choice in all respects except parking ! Street parking on PCH impossible and the parking lot above the restaurant which you enter off Gleneyre St. only permits 3 hrs for $6.00. You have to buy tix and put on yr windshield and we were told that parking enforcement gives tickets even on Sundays so.... you really can't park , eat leisurely and then walk around without moving your car which was a turn off. Food was good and server Anna from N.Zealand was outstanding! THey were very kind and brought a slice of cake w/cream and berries and a candle to celebrate my friend's 70th Birthday which was generous and appreciated. "

  • "With a great location and your popular 'surf and turf' menu, the food was nothing special. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive, although he was supported by a group of busboys that seemed to be rewarded for the number of dishes removed from the table! Became kind of an uncomfortable game it seemed. Often times we were not finished."

  • "After a long week my wife & I needed a nice meal & a couple of drinks. Our waiter was terrific & perfectly described the specials. He was quick with the drinks & calamari appetizer. The drinks were perfect. The calamari was lightly breaded but tasted a little fishy. We both ordered the seafood jambalaya. Mine with rice & my wife's with pasta. Both were great. "

  • "Everything about Rock 'n Fish is great. This is a place with a personality, which is a hard thing to pull off in a food-frenzied world. Walk up a steep flight of stairs (or take the elevator if you must) and you will explode into a world you never knew was there - a world of something very different. Great food, great service, even great music .... But if you don't like pub-style noise, you'd be better off to pass and go to one of the few other places in town with food and service this good, and this different!"

  • "I took my wife here for our anniversary since we had been married in Laguna Beach many years ago. I won't say how many ;) We live in Yorba Linda, so neither of us were familiar with Rock'n Fish. We looked at the reviews and it seemed like a good bet. From the moment we walked in, everything unfolded very nicely. They had my note requesting a window seat for our anniversary. The fish - halibut - was very fresh and flavorful. We had veggies and sweet potato fries as sides, plus a bottle of sparkling wine. Tasty and delicious. The service was very accommodating and genuine. Just a great evening! We'll have to go back. The nearby parking lot allowed three hours, which was more than enough time for dinner, dessert, and a nice walk by the beach."
