    Mediocre food but a stunning rooftop which is what you are paying for and the hostess was rude. Too many large parties for that rooftop space that made our area cramped to say the least. Not fun when people are coming and going and bumping your head and apologizing trying to get to and from their party. The bathrooms are too far from each other and you have to go up and down too flights of stairs to get to them? Poorly designed venue for what they are trying to achieve.

    John the Manager is always terrific. He's everywhere overseeing that everyone is taken care of, we are all served at the same time, and there is nothing we need. All of our many dishes (9) came out together and were delicious!

    We arrived and the hostess said she couldn’t honor our reservation because it was too full. She directed us to the bar which was very full. The bartender ignored us so we left. We will never return.

    Tried out Skyloft for my husband's birthday dinner, and it was great! Decent prices for being in downtown Laguna Beach, with a nice sunset view. They have some really neat tables on the side porches where you almost feel like you're outside/a really neat feel with open windows, etc. They have a rooftop but it's first come first serve, so we got the next best thing with our reservation. Food was great! They also had a jazz band playing, and looks like they have a decent amount of live music. Definitely recommend!

    Food was spectacular, I got the pork chop and my boyfriend got the 14oz steak. The Sky Martini was absolutely delicious, I definitely recommend if you’re a vodka fan. On top of that, we got to watch the sunset while eating dinner, so it was a perfect date night.

    I was visiting Laguna Beach from NY for the first time. I walked past this restaurant many times as it is located on the main strip. I was able to get a reservation for dinner for 2. When we arrived, there was a long line to see the hostess, which I thought was a good sign. Because we had reservations we were able to be seated immediately, however the only table for 2 they had was directly next to the bar and right under a speaker. Because it was only 8 PM and I had never been to this restaurant I agreed to take the table. I quickly regretted that decision when a large crowd arrived to hang out at the bar and crowd around our table. The waiter could barely get to us to take our order with the crowd and we were uncomfortable and annoyed. I went up to the hostess to ask for a table change. She said she didn't have anything. A few minutes after I saw a man ask for a table in another section of the restaurant and he was quickly taken to the quieter section. She didnt even attempt to find a table on the rooftop area. The location of this table is poor, but also we were completely overlooked by the hostess. I would recommend this place only for a fun drinking/dancing night, but NOT for a dinner date. Definitely my least favorite restaurant of the ones I visited.

    Great view and atmosphere on the deck. My filet was dry and didn’t have any flavor. Mashed potatoes were excellent and our friends enjoyed the brisket dip and burger. I would not recommend the steaks. At $48 it should be flavorful and not dry. I’ll try a sandwich next time.

    I was a bit dismayed as I understand you have to wait for the rooftop even after making a reservation. BUT I DID SEE THE ROOFTOP HOSTESS CHOOSE WHO SHE SAT before others. That was disappointing. Even after mentioning it was a 30 year anniversary dinner. Just for two. Also as we dined downstairs, our food arrived as a “to go” order??? We were seated, having drinks and food came to our table in a bag instead of a plate. MY ADVICE, because I’ve seen it now twice, rooftop hostess SEATS FRIENDS, who she feels to seat in rooftop first. Even heard the people she was seating say “wow already??” Yes already when the rest of us are told up to 45 min, you get seated in 3 min. Coincidentally, this couple walked in behind my party, and we had the EXACTE same amount in the party to be seated. I GUESS YOU HAVE TO “HAVE THE LOOK,” or “BE FRIENDS” with this particular hostess. AND THIS ISNT THE FIRST TIME I WITNESSED THIS. THIRD TIME TO BE EXACT. THATS WHY THE COMMENT

    Extremely poor service. Hostess did not provide us with silverware. When our appetizer came out, we asked the server for small plates, she never came back. We had to get up and ask the bartender for napkins and silverware. Our main server was the only one attending to about 10 tables and we had to wait very long for him to get to us. Food was meh. Not going back. This place needs to do a better job and stop relying on their ambiance.

    Why in the world would you seat people in the bar area for dinner with a live band loud enough to be heard in Riverside? Music was so loud we cashed out and left without eating. If you're seeking dinner, do not let the hostess seat you in the bar.

    Reservations don't mean much there. The hostess was a bit out of touch and told us that even though you have a reservation you still have to wait 45min or sit at the bar. Took them after we sat down it took the server about 20 min to come ask us for any order. I had to get up and order drinks from the bar myself. After all that, the manager had the audacity to come pick the check and say oh you guys are done, good cuz we have to seat other people. Basically kicking us out. Horrible customer service and experience. Will never recommend it for dinner. You can find much better service, quality of food somewhere else and paying the same amount of money.

    I made a reservation for my sons 18th birthday and notated on the reservation that it was for an 18th BDAY. No problem making the reservation, even confirmed the day before. When my son and his friends arrived they were refused service because apparently Skyloft is 21 and over on Friday and Saturday nights. This information is not noted ANYWHERE on their website or on OpenTable. When I called and spoke to the hostess, Jessica, she was extremely rude and condescending. When I asked to speak to a manager she stated no one was there…at 8:30pm on Saturday. When I gave her my phone number to have one of the apparent 4 managers this establishment has call me back she pretended to write it down but when I asked her to read it back to me she couldn’t and recited the number I was calling from which was my husbands phone. Today is Tuesday and I haven’t received a call from any of the 4 managers who’s names were given to me as Deana, Albert, Jose and John. Needless to say I will not be supporting this business in the future, nor will I be recommending them to anyone that asks. This 21+ policy should be clearly stated on this website and the restaurants.

    I made reservations a month prior to our visit and requested rooftop dining. We were hoping for a quiet dinner on the rooftop, and got a loud bar. When we asked about it we were told it would be a 60-90 minute wait. That was the reason why I requested it on the reservation.

    The hostesses on the 2nd floor were not very attentive and didn’t seem like they wanted to be working. Another family asked if they could sit at this one table and the hostess looked at her and said sure and turned away. What happened to yes, no problems. Let me get meme and seat you. Hostess on rooftop were so much nicer and attentive. Rooftop ambiance was great. Waitress was nice. The fish and chips, was really greasy but the crust had good flavor. 3rd time I’ve been here and quality food is ok. If customers are going to have to pay more for their food, I would recommend improving the quality and making it worth the price.

    Skyloft is a great experience but trust me go for the upper deck. The views are great especially if you arrive around sunset time. A great evening is to take a walk in heisler park, then along the beach a bit, arrive at Skyloft get a nice table with a view and enjoy the sunset over some Sea Bass. Their live band was outstanding and we danced a bit in the later evening before leaving and getting some gelatto at the place down the way. Including Skyloft in your evening plans at Laguna Beach is a great idea...

    Service was good but slow a few times. Entrees took forever, it is overpriced and we would expect a tastier food, the BBQ options were all cold, after waiting so long didn’t want to complain and get out. Certainly good for drinks but if you want to have a good meal then are better options around by the same price range. Tables were loud and the bell of the elevator on the rooftop is painful to the ears. It is ok to alert but to keep it on all the time while the elevator is already out is not necessary and just bother you.
