Took my wife out on a date night and we both had a great time. The food was brought out to us in a timely manner. Our server was very pleasing. Will go back again.

To start our wait person named Danny, short for Danielle was great. She was accommodating without being overbearing, really friendly and just right. The food was nice and had nice spice and the hot salsa was really good. We ordered a pitcher of Margaritas and I asked to have the ice on the side, no problem. She brought fresh ice as needed and the drink stayed fresh to the end. We will go back.

Food was very good especially if you like it on the spicy side. The bar and booths for the restaurant are very close to each other so it can get loud (depending where you are sitting). Our waiter seemed to have a little attitude but the rest of the staff were outstanding and attentive.

Asada has a cool Laguna Beach vibe and is right on Coast Highway. Windows are open in the summer and you get the sea breeze adding to the ambience. Table at the window ideal for people watching; but let's not forget about the food- killer salsa and Mexican food kicked up a notch or two- have tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. Last time, had the Blackened Halibut Tacos- delicious.
There is a reason why we come back again and again- outstanding food, terrific setting.

Our family has gone to Asada several times for dinner and have always enjoyed ourselves. Their salsa and margaritas are great. The food is good, not the best Mexican food I have ever had, but better then most. Our waitress was very attentive and always smiling. Fun place to go with a group.

The service was amazing, we were seated very promptly. The menu has a great selection and the speciality drinks are delicious. Once we received the food, it was spot on perfect. Two bites into our food and quite conversation, there was a group of 4 young ladies that were sat directly next to us. It turns out these were not young ladies at all, but actually the owners kids. They were incredibly loud, every server in the restaurant had to come socialize with them, and they were allowed to do as they pleased. Our intimate, great onbiance had changed into something we couldn't wait to escape. Our server acted as if this was the norm. My recommendation is to come here with a group of friends, a social activity, but certainly not for date night.

Sitting arrangement is not the best. I felt we were on top of everyone. Food was just OK. Not worth how much we paid. I am glad we tried it BUT we won't go back.

I had breakfast here - my first visit. I thought the eggs Benedict was quite good and overall enjoyed the visit

We got there with table reserved. Some confusion happened with other customers but they took care of us giving our table in few minutes. A little slow the service but they were also very busy.
At the end it was a positive experience ....
