This is our favorite go to spot for Friday night happy hour. We enjoy the half price appetizers on their new menu. The Caesar salad is great and we split an entree of the penne pasta since it is no longer on the happy hour menu.

Food was so so and over priced. My expectations were high for a place that offered plates in the $40 range. I made a reservation a month in advance for 11 people. Instead of putting us upstairs in the dining area we had to go downstairs through the bar and into the outside patio (no view). If we wanted to eat in the dining area we would have had to wait 45 min - even with a reservation. Bar was loud, and the entertainment was not child appropriate. Our server was great keeping up with a party our size, and was super friendly. Would not eat here again though due to the food and the management of our reservation.

This used to be our favorite brunch place. This time the food was bland. I don’t know if they’ve changed Chefs, but the food was not at all the same quality. Also, they took off the breakfast burrito that was supposedly the most ordered menu item during brunch.

Went here for the first time last weekend, and enjoyed it very much. The convenience of valet parking makes this a standout choice compared to other restaurants on PCH. Both the food and service were excellent. Our server Guy was very knowledgeable and extremely accommodating of my food intolerances. The Chilean sea bass is some of the best I’ve ever had, highly recommend. We will definitely be back!

This is definitely a Laguna Beach gem! A great venue for an ocean view on the rooftop and one of the best happy hour menus in town. We enjoyed the fresh Caesar salad and the penne pasta. We have also enjoyed all of the skewers. Great place.

Greg is a great waiter. The chicken liver was a little over cooked. The seared Ahi Tuna was noticeably not as good as has been before. Ceviche was very good.

We always look forward to coming here. They have one of the best happy hour menus in Laguna Beach. We always enjoy the Caesar salad - very fresh and light. And we also enjoy the pecorino pasta. But all the skewers are very good as well.

Service was not acceptable on high price restaurant. The server was not tentative with the customer. Ordered strawberry margarita the waitress came back we are out of strawberries. We order something else. The drinks will take awhile would you like to order some appetizers? The server never came back and see if everything was ok except would you like deserts.

There were 2 customers and no one took their order they waited awhile and got up an left.

I will never come back again. My daughter commented that she felt that server thinks she's better than us. We spend approx. $260 for 3 of us.

We had reservations and were seated on time. After placing our main food order, it had been 40 minutes and no food yet. I complained to our waiter and he agreed this was not right and would be escalated to his manager. He then came back and told me the ticket said 35 minutes and this was common for this night. Either time is too long to sit and wait for food and the way he handled the situation was unacceptable. I won’t be back.

We had an amazing time celebrating my birthday! Group of 12, they gave us a beautiful private room. Our servers were incredibly attentive and friendly. They put the band on live TV for us to enjoy while we ate our dinner. We made our way to the DJ downstairs until bar close. Was offered a ride on their shuttle bus to another place in Laguna for free! What a wonderful service for your customers to take advantage of. We look forward to coming back again!

We invited a couple to enjoy the happy hour menu with us. We all started with their delicious Caesar salad. One guest loved the beef sausage skewer - very tasty. We are in a rut and always get the pecorino cream pasta. The other guest enjoyed the fish and chips. Everyone was happy.

They have a great happy hour menu Mon - Fri. You can sit inside on the first and second floors or outside on the roof on 3 or on 1 on a charming patio. Caged macaws periodically say hello when you walk in. We enjoyed a very fresh and light Caesar salad and their pecorino cream pasta with asparagus, tomatoes, mushrooms and garlic - delish!

We really enjoyed our meals, seated on the first floor on the patio where it was quieter on Mother’s Day. The pork chop was excellent as was the chicken peri peri and the halibut. And we enjoyed the South African red blend wine Kanonpop.

Beautiful outdoor lunch with view of the ocean. They brought us an umbrella when the sun came out. Our server was very attentive.
Their menu online says they have a garden burger which is what I wanted but they don’t have it anymore. I had a BLT which I didn’t like. Bread is too thick, too toasted and not enough tomato and mayo so it was really dry. I didn’t finish it. It could do with some avocado, less bacon.
It’s way to thick to bite.
Hope they fix this.
