South of Nick's - Laguna Beach
Wonderful food and service, what we've learned to expect from the Nick's brand. Here, the Southwestern cuisine is imaginative, fresh fresh fresh, and immensely satisfying.
Very good drinks. Love the toasted coconut margarita. Ambiance was nice. A large party came in with children after we arrived and were seated. The waiter kindly moved us to a quieter section. Food was good. The lunch portions are large so my husband and I split a two enchilada lunch. It was plenty for both of us and our waitress was very accommodating. Excellent service.
It was all Good. Got seated right away. Our server was attentive. All the dishes came out on time and the food and drinks hit the mark.
South of Nick's is a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful sunset view in Laguna Beach. Excellent service, and the food is outstanding.
Overall experience was amazing. service was impressive. Food was amazing. Drinks were delicious. First time here and will definitely return!
Service was awesome with food to match.
Wow! Absolutely incredible meal, service and quality. The seafood dishes were delicious. I had the seafood chili reneno, it was stuffed with huge prawns and lobster pieces. The queso and fresh tortillas are a must and the mezcal margarita was perfect. I highly recommend this place and will be back!
The food is great, and the service is excellent. I highly recommend it .
Usually outstanding, this time so-so for an early Saturday night dinner. Food was disappointing compared to prior experiences, specifically seafood enchiladas seemed to be full of onions and very little seafood. Nice servers, but generally not very attentive (not just ours, we observed the same with others). Hopefully, it was just an off night. We've been very impressed with Nick's in Pasadena, Long Beach and Laguna, and South of Nicks in Laguna as well. Will give it another try.
Always good and consistent. The bartenders are great!
Too loud. Hard to hear. Food is great
The mini sopes not authentic “not made out of corn dough” believe made out of flour.
Best restaurant in Laguna
Everything is wonderful at South of Nick’s in Laguna Beach! Plus we love the view! We will dine there as often as we can !
Loved this restaurant...the food...the tequila margaritas...the views...and the service by Cayleigh!
I luv, luv this place! Every item on the menu is excellent! The service is excellent! Drinks to die for! The ambiance is stellar and the ocen view is memorizing!
I always try to order something different and I am always impressed. Service was impeccable and our server Norma was amazing. We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday girl was presented with a card from the staff. Love this place!
Celebrating a birthday and we had a wonderful time.
We love this place!!! – the atmosphere is fun and friendly, the staff is great, they make you feel like a VIP. Service is well-timed and staff is very helpful and knowledgeable of their menu and popular dishes (especially if you can't decide). The food is GREAT! Every time we go we try something different and we are never disappointed. We highly recommend South of Nick's to friends, and when we have family and friends visiting, we bring them here!
We had a fabulous meal with great service!
Great ambience for a casual networking meeting
Our party had a great time! The food was great - best part, chips and salsa.
South of Nicks is a real winner. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Each member of my party enjoyed there dish. I had th red seafood reallano. It was a roasted Chile topped with large shrimp. The enchiladas were very tasty and presented very well. My son liked the Mexican Sprite. I loved the strawberry jealopino. Marguerite. My wife enjoyed a traditional Marguerite . The banana flan was almost like a cheesecake . What a view
Loved everything about this restaurant. Great food and ambiance.
I would recommend the sopas appetizer. That dish was wonderful. Everything else was good, but nothing was exceptional.
Extremely poor service. Waited 15-minutes just to place our order.
Great food and service every time!
Absolutely fresh and delicious
The chips and guacamole were delicious! We will be back again! Above and beyond service! Thank you we will be back again ❤️
when i was seated there was a fan blowing on me. i asked the fan to be turned down which the staff did but as i neared the end of my birthday dinner i noticed the fan was returned to high, not good. my wife took me there for a birthday dinner.
Delicious food, great drinks - as always fantastic experience
Terrific, attentive staff. Delicious choices and something for everyone.
We have eaten at the restaurant numerous times and love it - BUT, this time our server was just not up to their normal high standards. It took a long time to order/receive our drinks, his timing was off with the ordering process, and he never asked if we wanted another drink. He had noted I am gluten free, but didn’t make the connection when offering desserts. Other waiters have added to our experience and he took away from our experience. We also were offered a table in the back of the restaurant, but when asked for something else we were give a nice table in the front. Always hate when offered the worst table and then when you “ask”, you are given a better table.
We had our anniversary lunch here today and loved everything about it!!
Fresh and delicious! My husband had ceviche, which was out of this world! It's not on the menu, but we were told by a local you can ask for it. I had short rib tacos with corn tortillas (GF). So good. The JALAPEñO WATERMELON Margarita is to die for!!! It's sooooo good. Service was excellent! When the bar got busy, management and others jumped behind the bar to help out.
We can always count on South of Nicks for a great dining experience!
Amazing food, service and ambiance!!!
Ceviche is a must!!
Dislike the food, it was dry and prepared properly
Went Nick on 9/03/2019 and the service and food was excellent. Had the fired chicken hmmm good. My wife had steak and her was outstanding. So the next day we went to south of Nick's and shrimp Taquitos for an appetizer so good. The Margaritas were to die for. If your every in Laguna must go to either restaurant for dinner or drinks.
