Mediterranean
AVEO Table + Bar masterfully blends seaside elegance with a coastal casual vibe. With sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, the restaurant’s cuisine highlights the best of the Mediterranean from Spain to Italy and from Greece to Morocco, with dishes inspired by local influences and an emphasis on organic and sustainable ingredients drawn from new and longstanding partnerships with local fishermen, ranchers, farmers and food artisans. The restaurant also offers an impressive wine list, craft beers from local breweries, and a craft cocktail program that takes a “farm-to-bar” approach by using herbs grown on-site and honey harvested from the property’s bee hives.

Everything was wonderful. When we arrived at 5:30pm hour of our reservation, our table was not ready but the hostess had us waiting with a Champagne glasses and that make all the difference. The food was amazing and the service great as well. It was our anniversary and definitely we want to come back .

Although the food was very good, it was very much overpriced. The ambience for inside seating was extremely disappointing. Outdoor seating would be much better, weather permitting.

Very disappointing - ambiance lacks the appeal I expected in the resort. Food took a long time and was mediocre. Over priced. Service was good. More of an expensive family restaurant and I was with my husband looking for a quiet night out.

Too many toddlers who were not seated, and often screaming was a huge detriment to our meal.
Considering the cost of our meal, this was very unpleasant . Also the strong florescent lighting is not good for ambiance. This is all unfortunate since the food is very good, drinks as well.

I think it may have just been a weird night for them, but the service was painfully slow. I hate to blame our server because she was sweet, but we sat for 15 mins before anyone came up to our table to even take a drink order. That being said, the food was great and staff was very friendly. Overall a good experience and I would recommend it.

We arrived just before sunset and sat inside. Just prior to the sunset the sun shades are drawn to appreciate the sunset view. The service was excellent and the food was great, a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

We watched the sunset from the upstairs patio at the MBR. The hotel is elegant and yet laid back with a friendly California vibe. They had an amazing musician playing the violin while friends gathered to listen and watch the sunset. AVEO was billed as a lively and bustling restaurant but it was not that. While the food was quite good it wasn’t exactly the kind of experience we were hoping for. It may have the season or that it was early evening. They have outdoor seating with a beautiful ocean view and they were very kind to bring a heater over to our table. We would definitely give it another try and I’d live to stay at MBR the next time we are in Laguna/Dana Point

We came for the Thanksgiving Day brunch as we are out of our home during renovations, and the four of us all enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the service immensely. We were greeted and seated immediately, and were fortunate enough to have Omar serving our table. Omar was personable and attentive. He did a great job seeing that we had everything we wanted to drink, and he was available to answer questions. Everyone we came across was pleasant and professional. Particularly enjoyed an exchange with Tanny, the chef at the omelet bar. He was entertaining and funny, as well as a good chef! The sushi and sashimi were fresh and fantastic, and the omelet was delicious. Also highly recommend the bread pudding from the dessert bar.

The restaurant was beautiful; unfortunately due to weather our view wasn’t as good as it might have been. Overall I can say my husband and two of our adult children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon at Aveo, and we will be back for a more typical meal.

When we showed up, all seeking on patio was empty except for 1 table. We asked to move over 1 table for a better view, but we're told this was only table they could offer us. No one else sat at the other tables all night. I ordered a sangria; it was watered down with 3 small chunks of apple and no berries. My friend ordered a mixed drink with only a hint of alcohol. The guys received their beer in a tall.skinny flute that tasted like a lesser known beer. At 19$ a drink, even a small buzx would have been welcomed...nope. Then, out $42 a plate scallops came with literally 3 scallops balancing on finely chopped handful of potatoes with argula between the 3 scallops. Now. If they had been tasty, still might have been worth it... they weren't :( The lamb dinner was average...get better at Outback for half the cost. Then, the chocken pasta? Well, if you like dry chicken that makes you hang out in the bathroom all night then go. Ahead and try it...blah. :( The service was very ordinary and scarce despite only 2 small parties on the patio. For a $260 dinner for 4 people we were expecting a little bit more. We normally would have desert and coffee, but since dinner was so blah...we went simewhere else. Not a problem, but note that you have to have your car valet parked too. Sadly, disaapointed and won't be back.
