When you dine at my restaurant you are traveling through the world's markets with your palate, and you don't even need a passport.

Awesome spot. Surprisingly awesome food.
Food was amazing! Highly recommend the beef tenderloin and lobster ravioli. The server was patient with us as we got into town right before closing time, and we were starving!
The drinks were perfect and the food tasted great, but the wait for our adult main courses took a very long time. Our children were done with their meals by the time they brought ours out.
Food and cocktails were good/average. Nice summer happy hour! Sitting outside to enjoy a mellow beach evening is difficult. Outside seating is close to main drag and very noisy!
This place used to be original and good. The menu items haven’t changed much over the years, and prices have climbed without reason.
Dear CulinaryOC, Thank you for your honest review. We just introduced a new Happy Hour menu offered daily from 4pm to close and a new summer dinner menu, chock-full of new items! We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon to try something seasonally fresh and exciting. Sapphire
Food was amazing! Will definitely go back! Service was also amazing! I only took off one star because there was a little confusion in making the reservation. Upon making the reservation online, it said we would be honored happy hour prices, which didn’t happen. But the food was too good anyway so it didn’t bother us that much.
Will come back for their amazing bread pudding too!
Thank you, Mreyn7, for your kind words! It makes us happy to know that the food and service were both amazing. I apologize for the confusion regarding Happy Hour pricing, if there is anything further we can do, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Sapphire Management
We Always have a wonderful meal at Sapphire. My husbands favorite it the Kobe Burger. I tend to change it up. love the Fish Tacos, but had the ribeye this time and it was wonderfully tender and tasty. We had the grand children with us and they both choose the Salmon from the kids menu with the fresh broccoli and the fruit. They loved it. They were a little disappointed in the very small balls of ice-cream and sorbet though! Our waitress was very friendly and kind. I dumped my wine and she replaced it an no charge.
On behalf us all of us at Sapphire, I would like to thank you for sharing this lovely review about us! We are thrilled that you and the family all enjoyed your dining experience. I will be sharing your feedback amongst our team. Enjoy the summer and please come visit us again soon! Sapphire Management
Everything is great about this place. Particularly if you want to eat outside. You can see the ocean and you can also see the busy Laguna beach PCH activity which is always interesting, particularly if you enjoy the car culture. this time we did not have the dancing man on the corner to entertain us but he is frequently there and that is also a treat.
Hi DDB28, thank you for your awesome review! We’re glad you enjoyed your visit to Sapphire and had a great time out on our patio! We too appreciate Michael's dance moves, hopefully he's spreading his good vibes the next time you visit! Sapphire Management
We enjoyed everything about Sapphire Laguna. The menu was varied and included gluten free and vegan as well as vegetarian dishes. All we’re well presented and delicious. Service was great, nice wine list. Noise level is high but that’s a sign of a great restaurant where people are having fun.
I’ve been going to Sapphire for over 10 years and for the first time I was a little disappointed. We decided to forgo a full meal and have drinks and appetizers. We ordered three $15 (average) appetizers thinking it would be enough). I should have taken a picture of the chicken skewers (in my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined the minuscule portion). The blacken shrimp (6 Small (and I mean small) shrimp arrived in what looked like a soup cup dripping with an unexpected brown sauce (which I don’t think was gluten-free). Our waiter was just so-so. We normally have a waiter we’ve known for years and they are always friendly and go out of their way for us. Not this time. I felt like we were an inconvenience (and we’re really fun and easygoing people).
In all the visits I’ve made to what I considered my favorite restaurant in Laguna, I feel we need a re-do.
Excellent food and service interesting menu something for anyone

Excellent food but quite pricey.
Delicious food, both interesting and prepared to perfection. Great flavor, not overpowering, well balanced, paired well with the main element of the entree.

Such a lovely place to enjoy good food (especially the Pickled Plum Salad) and Laguna Beach. The service was excellent. Only one minor issue, a medium-rare steak was served medium, so no complaints really.
Thank you so much Sharon for taking the time to let us know how your experience was. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Sapphire

Worst food, not enough chairs. Had to wait and ask several times for an extra chair. The Lamb was terrible for $38.00 only ate half. Couldn't understand the waiter. Etc Etc. Not going back. Also, two others at our table got sick!!
Great spot for outdoor dining with a beautiful view on the PCH. Wait staff was friendly, courteous and very accommodating when we required additional cooking of a steak that was too rare. Meat was tender and delicious. Enjoyed the fish tacos and salads. Peppered shrimp was way too peppery, would be much better with a little less pepper and sauce. Overall, a pleasant dining experience.
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us a review. Our Sapphire family values put customer satisfaction as top priority and we are committed to our customers. We very much appreciate the honest feedback and look forward to serving you again.
Fantastic meal. Wait staff was helpful with suggestions, attentive and fun. Wine list is very approachable.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a nice review
Bonus for my husband
My daughter moved to Irvine for her first real job after college!
