Excited to eat here as we have friends that frequent the WeHo spot. Disappointing experience. Sat us in the back where the poor server did not have time to check in on us often. The place was much more happening in the front.. had reservations but still got the back seating area. Mojito wasn’t great... they did take it back for me but I didn’t have the heart to complain again so I just kept it. Ordered halibut ceviche and it really was not great. Watery, little flavor.

This restaurant came highly recommneded to me but I wasn't very impressed. I ordered a salad and it came with a few vegetables as topping. Then I ordered the veggie fajitas as I was unsatisfied with just the salad and the flavor of the veggies was lacking and overall for the price of the dish I was unimpressed with the quality and taste. As a gluten free vegan my options are limited and it's unfortunate when the few options are not up to par. The service was excellent but the food for my both my partner and I missed the mark.

❤️ ❤️❤️. Met some old friends for lunch. Food was awesome, apparently they now make their own special hot sauce! Margaritas were refreshing and tasty, and the service attentive without being overbearing... And the place was packed.

We'll be going back again and again!

We celebrated my wife’s 60th birthday. We love trying different upscale restaurants. Tortilla Republic is one of the best inLaguna Beach. The service, drinks, atmosphere, and food were outstanding. We highly recommend it.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel concierge. Had a very mixed experience. It’s never an appetizing start when the menus placed on the table are wet and dirty. Food variable: husbands pork chop delicious, my chicken mole ruined by rubbery chicken. Waiter never asked how our meals were— only if he could get us anything else. Perhaps he knew what my answer would be.

Went there for my husband’s birthday. I am not sure if they didn’t have enough servers, but we had to pour our own waters from a pitcher that happened to be behind us, it took over 30 minutes for our food to come out and it was just ok, and no one really came to check on us as we had to ask for more chips as we waited for the food to arrive.
Would like to go there again to give them another try, but overall the restaurant did not meet or exceed our expectations.

It was just 'ok'. Had the chicken fajita - and it was so-so. They charged a lot for a glass of wine and the pour was ridiculously light. But our server was really nice and very attentive!

I was here this past saturate and service was horrible. Took 15 minutes to get noticed and get chips and water . Food came out pretty quickly but rice and beans were cold . There was no point in bringing it up to our server as she was very busy but she could have asked her manager to get someone to help her out . Overall not a pleasant experience and the food just keeps getting worse and worse

We were greeted by a friendly group of hostesses at the front desk; they found our reservation quickly and walked us to a table in the very back of the restaurant. The AC was much cooler in this area and we asked if we could get a table that wasn't quite so cold and not so far in the back. She asked us to wait for a moment and came back and was able to accommodate us. Food and drinks were really good. So was guacamole and salmon ceviche. We got lucky with parking in the lot behind as well. Fun night!

The food is NEVER hot. This place could be a goldmine but the food has gone down hill. South of Nicks is most likely going to put you out of business for no other reason other then their food is HOT, their service is amazing and they seem to care.
Good luck

I love that the food is not smothered in cheese. I have vegetarian and vegan options while my husband can have his meat. And the passion fruit mojito is what dreams are made of.
