I am visiting from Washington State and enjoyed this place with my dear friends. The food was INCREDIBLE. My filet mignon was ordered medium-rare and it cut through like butter. So tender and juicy! It was excellent. We had the risotto and that was cooked to Gordon Ramsey standards. Their ice cream trio was a perfect finish to our already amazing appetizers and entrees. I will absolutely come here again the next time I visit Orange County!
Great service and amazing food! Staff is super helpful and welcoming, the chef was incredible! Amazing owner as well.
Wonderful! Fantastic! Special! Amazing! Delicious! Best time!
Great meal!!! We got thoroughly enjoyed it. It was take-out but oh well.
It was delicious. Food and drinks were on point!
Outstanding food and server
Great all-around experience. Loved the Holiday ambiance even while dealing with Covid (we were seated on the patio outside next to the fireplace). Excellent, friendly and attentive service. Great food and cocktails. We splurged on Wagyu beef tartare and oysters for our appetizer, split the wedge salad, had a filet and bone-in ribeye, and shared a baked potato and the wild mushrooms. All the food was delicious and cooked perfectly. Only complaint would be the bone-in ribeye was a little disappointing for the price. Bone was like a ribeye you get at the grocery store, barely bigger than 3 inches and pretty thin (cut of meat was only 2oz bigger than their non bone-in one ??). When paying that price for a bone-in, I expect a larger piece of meat and more substantial bone-in (but woe is me 😬). Other than that, pretty much a perfect birthday dinner night out. We will be back for sure and can’t wait.
Perfect date night out with my husband! The food is always top notch as well as the service. It is our favorite spot in Laguna Beach!
Was excellent as usual
It was a wonderful outdoor dining experience since we had it on the last day before the lockdown took effect this December for indoor/outdoor dining. I had fresh oysters for appetizer (gone in less than a minute!), my fiancé and I had steak (good char and so scrumptious!), and had very tasty mac&cheese. This is one of our favorite local restaurants in the area. We’ll keep supporting them!
Always great and consistent!
Loved our waiter from Australia !!!! He was fantastic and we just moved down the street so we will be back soon. Hopefully after Covid } :
Food was amazing and so we're the cocktails! We loved it here and will definitely be back! Great date night restaurant!
Fantastic on every level. My favorite meal and dining experience of 2020!
The food was ok but expected more. I've heard great things about this place.
Awesome as usual. Service, ambiance, and food are always on point.
Love this place! Great food, service and atmosphere! Will always look for reasons to dine there! The Lord Stanley’s Cut is my favorite!!
For being restricted due to Covid and Gruesome Newsome they did a fantastic job with the accommodations. I got to sit outside upstairs with the heaters. Great spot. Stephen our server was A1 First Class, what a profesional.
Steak was tough and hard to chew. Scallops were really good. Everything else was average at best. Great service.
It was an outdoor table with the Covid restrictions but they did they best they could with ambience. Our table was on a bit of a slant so it took a while to get settled but other than that it was very nice. Bonnie was excellent and the food was delicious.
Excellent food, excellent service. Overall great experience.
The best steaks we've ever had in Orange County. Couple that with amazing side dishes and it made for an amazing night. Our server was extremely attentive the whole night and really made for the perfect dining experience.
We come here every year for our anniversary and although this time was unique given all of the over the top Covid restrictions being placed on restaurants I think the restaurant and staff did a great job of navigating all that and making the experience a great one.
Food excellent; definitely on the rich side.
Prices very much at the upper end of what you see in the area.
Would never go back during COVID Outdoor dining. It was the worst experience.
Food is amazing.
Service was ok. They seemed overwhelmed.
I specifically chose this place because of the seemingly romantic ambiance, judging from the photos. I took my partner here for his birthday and was very disappointed. The customer service was sub-par and we were placed in this random corner that didn't even look like it was part of the restaurant. The desserts weren't good either...
I enjoyed the Lord Stanley though.
I understand restaurants are restricted to outside, but our table and chairs were way too small. And our server was very rude and not attentive. Food was ok. Not enough options of sides. Was hoping for better because we had heard such great things.
My husband and I dine here for special occasions and we are never disappointed. The food is always so unique and delicious, not your typical steakhouse menu. I would highly recommend dining here anytime.
We loved celebrating our anniversary outside up top. The food was amazing and I highly recommend it pre and post Covid. 💜
Food and service was amazing our server was very nice and friendly, Great experience 👍🏼
We really liked our server and dinner was delicious!
AMAZING FOOD! And service!!!
Date night with my son.

My sons 26th birthday he is a huge Selanne fan!! Restaurant did not disappoint 💙
It was fantastic. Absolutely lived up to the hype. Everything was amazing down to the tomato tapenade was incredible.
Everything was wonderful! Food was delicious and service was attentive without being intrusive (thank you, Rafael)!
