We had been thinking of going to Dizz's for years but we never made it so for our anniversary we decided let's go to Dizz's. Inside was just we imagined really laid back with a ton of locals and every one having fun. We were seated at once in the area just off the main dining.The entertainment was a superb guitarist I don't think he took a break for two hours. Dizz's is a place sit , talk and enjoy the company you are with The place was really busy and the upstairs patio was open and it appears they only had one waitress, who really was helpful, for both sections so service was a little slow but it just gave us more time to talk. Now the food, we started with the honey ginger shrimp, four large shrimp bathed in delicious sauce, it's so sweet you could pour it over ice cream. Add two more shrimp and some rice and it could served as a entree. We both had the veal, my wife the veal piccata and for myself the veal marsala, both were delicious. Finished with the chocolate chip bundt cake like a large brownie.

Dizz's will not disappoint. The restaurant has been a unique gem in south Laguna Beach for over 3 decades, and has mantained the standard of quality that has kept diners coming back year after year. Food is consistently good, with a wide variety of options, and service is friendly and attentive, although it can be slow on busy weekends. The decor is eclectic to be sure, and parking is always a challenge, but worth the effort for the experience.

A 4% surcharge for using a credit card is a little ridiculous in this day and age

We had 2 main issues that were both financial and questionable. First when the bill came we placed a credit card for payment. When that was returned to sign there was an additional service charge. When looking further it was an UPCHARGE for using a credit card. It was never prominently stated anywhere there was an upcharge for usage of a credit card. When you look back it is subtly placed on the slip with no mention of the policy. We eat in multiple places throughout the area and this is the only restaurant doing such that I know of. If the policy is displayed somewhere either on the menus or when a cc is placed for payment if the staff just mentioned this was their policy prior to running a cc it would not seem so sneaky. The other complaint we were sent here on referral program from Marriott. It states 10% off food only. When we presented the waitress said she had to ask her boss and came back with 10% off 2 entrees. We also ordered an appetizer and 2 deserts neither of which was discounted. We did not ask nor did we expect a discount on 1 ice tea and 1 glass of wine but food is food and appetizer and desert should have been discounted. For a restaurant to be this sneaky over an upcharge and refuse to discount food as expected in the program they choose to participate in is unacceptable. FYI food was ok but nothing extra special.

Nice group of experienced people working this restaurant. Food was delicious! We tried all different menu items, so fresh! You also have got to go to experience the ambiance, and beautiful, vintage artwork.

My favorite restaurant. A little pricy so I save it for special occasions. Of course, sometimes just going there makes it special.

Seated right away but then ignored for about 10 minutes even though restaurant was not too busy. Had to flag someone down to order drinks. Sand dabs were tasty. Absolutely no acknowledgement of special occasion even though listed on the reservation . didn’t expect any freebies but a verbal congrats would have been nice. Interesting place but don’t think I’ll go back.

First time here. Very disappointing. Must be a local, loyal thing. And i'm a local.
Our waitress was clearly "medicated". She was slow and had little clue of the menu. I ordered the Filet, med rare. Although it had good flavor, it came med well. Not the same as med rare flavor. The "cook" should be ashamed for plating it. And it was no where near "generous". Too many delays and simple repeated reminders discouraged me from returning it.

My wife had the Rack of Lamb. She said they were good, as was the soup and salad. The Vermouth is a nice touch.

The ambiance was nice... if you like that sort of thing. They should put some effort in overall or at least update the pictures and description, some current "Press" reviews as well.

Failed.

Dizz's is always a fun place to dine. However, besides it's quirky and fun atmosphere, the food and service are OUTSTANDING. We enjoyed a B'Day dinner for 10 guests and every dish was amazing. Service was attentive and outstanding.

Such an amazing jewel in South Laguna. Food amazing, service fantastic, ambiance is classic California. Give them a try for your next dinner out!...try the lamp pops, the liver pate on toast and the cocktails are all old school “in a great way”

Same as it always is, always has been, always will be. And that's why I love it. Great food, great service, a family atmosphere (most have worked there for decades). You will always know what you are getting, from the dishware to the lemon garlic sauce, the recipes haven't changed and require no improvements.

Cheers!

Dominic and his family and crew serve up the most delectable meals. The pate appetizer is to die for and the steaks are like butter melting in your mouth. The whole experience is like going to an old friend's house, comfortable and special.

We've dined at Dizz's As Is for over 30 years, and for the most part, have always had a good experience. This last time was a bit of a disappointment, as they ran out of one of their signature dishes, and the service was very, very, very slow. We were seated right away, and received our menus quickly, but after that it was sit and twiddle your thumbs time. We waited longer than is usual to place our drink order, and what seemed like a very long time before we were able to place our order, and even longer to receive our food, but that paled compared to the wait to pay the bill. We had to ask several times for the bill, and when it did finally arrive, it was wrong. The food was excellent, as usual, but the restaurant seemed understaffed for a Sunday evening, and the service was exceedingly slow. We had to ask several times for more water, and never did receive bread. All in all, disappointing for a restaurant that over the years has become one of our favorite south Orange County establishments. We will be back, but hopefully the service will be improved.
