Food is awesome. I've tried something new every time I have gone and I have no complaints! Two thumbs up!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTheir duck burger.. DELICIOUS!Went here for Mother's Day with a reservation. After being seated, our server was extremely kind and started us off with two Samuel Smith Light beers and gave us some recommendations on what was good and what the kitchen had on special for the day. After ordering oysters and a filet mignon pot pie (which was very tasty) we ordered our main entrees. I had the duck burger with a sirloin patty after our server recommending it to us. There is no burger in this world that can come up to par with that burger; IT WAS THE BEST THING, EVER! A must have if you ever go there. Also don't forget their shoestring fries tossed in garlic and herbs, very good as well.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great! Took momThe food was great! Took mom on mothers day and we were sat right away. The service and food was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA fantastic dining experienceMy husband and I went to Watermarc with another couple Saturday night. We were seated upstairs next to the balcony overlooking the courtyard and the twinkle-lighted pepper tree. The ambiance was wonderful; it felt like we were in a posh treehouse. Cocktails (try the signature Watermarc) were delicious and not weak, and my husband was excited to see Chimay on the drink menu. We ordered several small plates, and especially loved the bacon wrapped dates and fried goat cheese. As for entrees, the scallops, salmon and filet 3 ways were all big hits, as was the potato purée trio; quite honestly, everything was sooo good. I'm so glad we decided to give Watermarc a try.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautifulThe food was divine. The server was probably the best one we've EVER had anywhere. He scheduled our tapas dishes to come out with perfect timing and even suggested the order based on the presentation on the palate. He suggested an excellent wine for me as well (and I'm pretty picky about that). The busers were very quick to clear the tables. It was a beautiful meal and wonderful experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server, Kevin, was outstanding.Our server, Kevin, was outstanding. I ordered scallops and they weren't as good as usual.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurantsOne of our favorite restaurants in Laguna Beach! We came last night after our engagement photo shoot and our photographer liked the decor and decided to take a few shots in the restaurant. The restaurant owner/manager was very gracious and helpful as we snapped a few shots before dinner. We're looking forward to coming back!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely try the filet mignonDefinitely try the filet mignon pot pie small plate.

I highly recommend the Filet Three Ways and the Potato Purée Trio. The steaks were perfectly cooked and seasoned, and each mashed potato dish was very flavorful. I will definitely return to the Watermarc and recommend this place to others.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGirl's Night OutIt was mine and my best friend's first time there.

Definite doody restaurant.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time thatThis is the second time that I have been to the Watermarc, and I thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The tapas are outstanding. You could order several to share in lieu of a meal and it would be perfect. I have now tried 2 entrees, the short ribs and the scallops, and they were both delicious. The goat cheese and bacon wrapped dates tapas were also wonderful.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere & ambiance.Great atmosphere & ambiance. Food was excellent.

I'd definitely visit again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWatermarc Succeeds on Every LevelWe liked the menu on their website, and even more once we were promptly seated at our reservation time. Watermarc's location across from Main Beach in downtown Laguna Beach is great. We got windowside seats,& could people watch both inside & outside. More importantly, we could hear ourselves speak. Although the restaurant is loud, it's a pleasant buzz, or at least it was from our table. Try the Dates wrapped in bacon, you'll thank me! The ricotta cheese & lamb chop small plates are also superb. Service was wonderful, worth many more trips.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time eatingThis was my second time eating here. My filet was very good, my date's paella was good but different from what we expected.
The staff was very attentive and enjoyed the atmosphere. We had a great time and will be back again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service, the food, theThe service, the food, the ambiance exceeded my expectations. Was amazing. Can't wait to come back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection of small platesGreat selection of small plates and large plates. As a vegetarian, appreciated all the well-prepared vegetable dishes as sides available. Put together a delicious meal. Wait staff were attentive and informative about the food choices. Especially appreciated the comfortable noise level- so hard to find in most Laguna restaurants.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSplendid placeGreat restaurant. Chief is magnificent. Location is right in the middle of Laguna making it easy to shop, walk and enjoy the beautiful town. Food was magnificently prepared and eaten.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMnice place. nice atmosphere.nice place. nice atmosphere. ended up sitting upstairs because lower floor was a bit cramped and noisy for a date. food was very nice.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and Romantic FindI found Wattermarc on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed with the recommendations. We wanted to try their Beef Wellington, since not many restaurants offer that as a choice these days. Again, we were quite satisfied with the quality of the filet and the flavor and texture of the mushroom pate' as well as the pastry. Our waitress was also friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out or even a casual meal.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a super private tableWe had a super private table out on the balcony of the second floor, which was awesome. The food was great. We had several of the small plates (beet carpaccio, ahi watermelon skewers and burratta) and they were all yummy. We split the filet tree ways which was good but not amazing. We also had the potato purée three ways which was great and the sweet corn risotto which was excellent. Overall a great experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHip, Cool & Unpretentious...Very hip & cool place, without being pretentious. The menu is very unique. Everything I've tried has been great.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was terrific! SalmonThe food was terrific! Salmon salad Nicoise was great. The server was attentive and very helpful.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to Watermarc aWe've been to Watermarc a number of times and the food and service are always consistent. We dine upstairs where the ambiance is quieter and more dining-like than the downstairs bar area that is more casual and noisy. We had the sizzling shrimp appetizer and for entrees the scallops and the swordfish which was the special of the evening.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night of foodLoved the menu at Warermarc. There was 2 of us and we shared 6 dishes from the tasting menu. Really original items. Our favorites were the oysters on the half shell that had vodka lemon infused ice chips on top and the tuna watermelon skewers. Our waiter was amazing...that always makes the night special. Bread pudding on dessert menu was to die for. Only complaint was noise. Acoustics are lousy so you have to talk loud. And seating is a bit like NY where tables right next to eachother.
Forgot to add...the warm bread they serve was out of this world. Paired with a unique butter that is flavored with 3 secret ingredients that is so unique!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the salad, tomatoEnjoyed the salad, tomato soup & cheese sandwich; corn risotto & green beans delicious. We would prefer the cauliflower dish to have much less salt; that's all we can taste in the dish.2/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
