Excellent food. NG always featured a delectable menu, and it never disappoints. There are excellent, tasty, vegetarian dishes for the non-carnivores, and not some raw vegetables tossed up in a salad, or boiled and salted.
The appetizer portions were not skimpy, and while the drinks are expensive, they are tasty. Alcohol with a meal makes the meal costlier, so I'll perhaps try the bar experience: cocktails and tapas should be a reasonable priced outing at Happy Hour.
Truly a fantastic place, if a bit on the expensive side: understandable given that it is in Laguna Beach
I really appreciate this unique menu, especially the large variety of small plates. Hubby and I shared 4 + a salad, everything was sooooo good! They add new things seasonally so there are frequently new things to try. Service is great too.
Love Nirvana Grill.
The fresh food and creative menu make coming here a treat. You just have to know where to park...other than that. It's a great place for dinner.
Wonderful place to dine. Food is delicious, service superb, hostess attentive to all needs.
Good, varied menu of small plates and large plates. The salad with half of a large plate item was a nice option. Roasted sea bass was delicious and perfectly cooked. Excellent service. Definitely worth a visit.
We were surprised that at 7:15 on a Friday night, specials were already sold out, as was one of the small plates. Only four other tables were occupied, and by 9:30 when we left, we were the last out the door. Is this late night dining?
The food was very good try the short rib.
Always a great meal at Nirvana. Delicious and fresh! Our server was attentive and informative.
As usual, this restaurant really performs. The menu has great selections with specials offered from time to time. At 5:30 on a week night, there were only a few people in the restaurant, so service was outstanding - but it usually is! I had the pork chop which was fantastic. My friend had the short ribs and they were amazing. The food is phenomenal and the service and attentiveness is terrific. Our waiter was helpful and even allowed us to change tables to one that was a bit more to our liking. Extremely good restaurant with food that is locally grown and sourced, with creative and interesting dishes on the menu. A few items are signature dishes and these are always outstanding. Anything new will be a hit, I am sure, as the chef pays great attention to preparation and presentation.
would have no problem waiting for a table here
I had the vegetarian platter. The vegetables were perfectly cooked, great selection and a lovely presentation. Excellent service and I will return to this amazing gem in Laguna Beach.
Always delicious food prepared with skill and care.
On vacation in Laguna Beach...quite time after Thanksgiving...intimate dining...excellent service...friendly staff...we'll go back.
My wife and I loved it! We just had a big salad and small plates of Prawns and Chimichuri Steak. Unbelievable food!
Food was superb. We chose Nirvana because it's within easy walking distance to the Sawdust Festival and we went for the Winter Fantasy event. I was a bit worried about some of the reviews, but not any more. Every dish was excellent.
Filet Mignon was incredibly flavorful and tender
Mushroom Ravioli was brilliant. The sauce makes it.
Salmon was excellent
Lamb was excellent
Airline Chicken (not the best name, huh?) was tender and very flavorful. My wife said it was the best dish she has had in a long time.
Butternut Squash soup (might have been a special) was incredible (very creamy, so not for those watching calories)
On the night we went, they had a special which had blackened salmon, shrimp and scallops and that dish was the bomb.
Wine and desserts were also excellent.
Very good service.
Nirvana will be on my go-to list for Laguna Beach!
I truly enjoy this restaurant. Their menu is not extensive, but all their food is fresh and prepared exceptionally well. The service is always quick and attentive, without being intrusive. I take many friends here, and everyone loves it. One of my favourite go-to spots for people who enjoy delicious food in a comfortable and elegant atmosphere.
The crab cakes & mushroom ravioli were really good. Service was excellent. Very nice find!
Excellent, well-prepared food in a lovely, quiet setting. A full-service restaurant and bar. Cares about the customers.
Always consistently delicious food and service is terrific!
Excellent food at reasonable price. I recommend. Hidden gem in Laguna Beach.
