Went to 230 Forest Ave with a party of four. All four in the party ordered wine or a cocktail and we had the kale salad, tuna tartare, and calamari appetizers ...all were excellent ! Next, we had the pork chop , scallops , halibut special and seafood pasta. Every one of us raved about the food, it was delectable. Jorge’ was our server and paid attention to every detail. The whole experience was great! We will be back ... SOON!😍
Great early dinner before concert. Had chopped seafood salads, mussels and lamb. All great. The fig purée margaritas were also excellent. Beautiful patio table was perfect. Attentive service.
Overly expensive. Food is incredibly good, but too expensive. Corkage is too high as well.
Amazing! Best service and Matt begins the bar was legendary as always.
We had the halibut special and it was delicious! Tables are packed in pretty tight was my only gripe.
Quiet evening there but lovely food and service. One of our favorites.
Started coming here when they first opened about 20 years ago. Even though I no longer live in the area, it’s always delightful coming back. Great food, wonderful staff, and always a treat!
Mary was a greater sever. Food terrific
The Salmon salad is incredible and a very generous portion. If you order the linguine, do add the shrimp. The food is excellent and you can sit indoors or outdoors on Laguna's Forest Avenue. One of our favorite places for lunch or dinner.
One of the best restaurants in Laguna! We are locals and are so thankful for this local restaurant gem! Great food, great service and a great people watching location!
Excellent food & service. The food presentation was also very nice - almost too pretty to eat.
Considering that this may be the last restaurant that I patronize during my lifetime, I'll just say that the experience was thoroughly enjoyable - including the presence of Adam Sandler and his family, who were also dining at 230 Forest.
Let's hope that the future is as bright as my memory of this occasion. Until then, be safe, one and all.
Food was not quite as good compared to prior visits.
230 Forest is consistently excellent! Food, service, location are all topnotch. Added bonus is the parade of people if you're lucky enough to score a seat on the patio.
Great food great service. I recommend the strip steak you won't be disappointed.
Sit on the patio if you want a little less noise. Great restaurant, great service. Martinis are excellent. Never have had a bad experience here. One of my favorite restaurants.
Our bartender Ryan was so nice and every suggestion he made was great. Brussels with Pork Belly and Chili sauce and double pork chop on polenta. Dessert chocolate croissant bread pudding. It’s always busy but the first time we ate here. We will be coming back.
Excellent food and wine selections. Our service was very good.
Wonderful dining experience. 5 stars all around, except of the 2 dishes we had, one was a 5 and the other a 3. It was boring and dull. But, definitely will be going back. The service was so attentive and friendly.
The food was outstanding! Best brussel sprouts I’ve ever had in my life!! Fantastic service as well.
This was our first time. My husband and I each had an entree salad and they were both delicious. Hubby also had oysters which were prepared with some kind of iced topping unlike anything he’d ever had before. Super yummy and unique. Lively Laguna Beach atmosphere and friendly hospitality make this a highly recommended casual spot. We’ll be back!
230 Forest is my go-to restaurant in Laguna Beach. I love taking business clients and good friends there because every meal is perfection and we always have a first class experience.
We're long time visitors at 230 Forest. They get everything right at this nice restaurant. It is comfortable, located in a great setting, the service is always good and the food is always EXCELLENT! We both had the bang bang shrimp. Wow is that dish delicious! We will be back!
Excellent food. Great halibut and salmon. Served hot and done to perfection. We hate overcooked fish, but both were done just right.
Always a pleasure to eat at 230! Until next time
Amazing food and service!
I recommend the chopped seafood salad ‼️
Great menu, with the flexibility to meet the needs as requested. Server (Dominic) was outstanding.
We stop here every tome we come to town!! Javier the waiter and Antonio and Chris always welcome us back! Such great service and the food is consistently awesome!
Great food. A little pricey but worth it. Staff was very friendly and everything came out on time and tasted great. One of our go to’s in Laguna for a night out with friends.
Great experience ALL AROUND. The "2" tables are a little too close for me....that's about the only negative I can think of.
Absolutely amazing dinner! Large portions and beyond tasty! Great service and fun environment. Would definitely recommend
This is a Laguna favorite! Haven’t had anything I didn’t enjoy here from appetizers to main course. The service is great, attentive and friendly without being overbearing.
Great, but I left my Prescription glasses there

Great food & service in the ❤ of Laguna Beach!🌊🌴
My kind of restaurant. Fancier atmosphere, but not pretentious. Food was great, service was even better. Great drinks and atmosphere. Can’t go wrong here!
Needed a last minute date night spot and was not disappointed!
Seating is intimate, but the energy is lively. Overall service was timely, meaning we were sat immediately and did not experience long wait times between service.
I enjoyed one hell of a gin martini, two actually. And my partner and I split their Burger and a Mushroom Gnocchi that was to die for. If we would have had any room for dessert, I am sure we wouldn't have been disappointed.
I took my wife to 230 Forest for her birthday dinner and we had an exceptional dining experience! Starting with the wonderful Roasted Brussel Sprouts, we both had some fantastic seafood entrees. Followed by a superb birthday dessert...definitely 5 stars for the whole evening ! ! !
The staff was lovely. The food was terrible.
The chef needs to go or be enrolled in current classes where the cuisine is delicious and not dated. This tries too hard to do not very much if anything right. Pass.
Great date night spot with amazing food and great service!
We were seated in the outdoor covered patio area which was warm but lacked luster. Every food item lacked flavor and pizazz. Nothing memorable was consumed there.
