The food is always so amazing. Service and atmosphere always perfect.
First time diners to the Starfish Restaurant in South Laguna Beach. My wife & I had a great dining experience! The food and selections were wonderful. We shared several "small plates". Good size potions and nice flavor profile. Our server, "Jamie" was excellent! She was extremely attentive without being overbearing, knew the entrees and was pleasant and friendly. Great service! Happy Hour, 3:00 - 6:00 pm is a great value, with discounted prices on small plates and mixed drinks. The owner "Archie" also stopped by our table to introduce himself. We highly recommend Starfish. Ask for "Jamie" as your server and also table #30, a nice booth tucked in the corner.
This is the most authentic Asian food (from many SE Asian counties) as you will find in Orange County. An all time favorite.
Just get the hot fish. Just do it. Don’t think. React. Hot. Fish. What are you waiting for!
Everything was Fantastic ! I Highly Recommend this restaurant ! Fair prices and Great Happy Hour Drinks And food ! Will go again soon !
We LOVED this restaurant!! We ended up cancelling another reservation somewhere else in order to come back here a second time before flying home. The entire menu is fantastic, the best of every Asian cuisine! The presentation of the food is beautiful and the atmosphere and friendly service make this place a top choice!
It's a one of a kind experience. From the moment you step inside there commited to making your dinner a pleaurable night out. It's our favorite restaurant because it's always great and consistant.
Fabulous. Atmosphere, food and service. Fabulous.
Great Asian fusion food and cocktails. We will definitely come back.
Great varied menu. Lots of flavorful dishes. Can’t wait to go back and try something different.
Great place for dinner. Quality and tasty food options to make anyone happy.
We have dined at Starfish a number of times and have to say that something was amiss on this visit. The quality of the food was not up to the standard that we had become accustom to. The entree's that were ordered had an overabundance of sweet potatoes and little meat. Maybe it was an off night and hope that was the case. We'll try it one more time.
Service and staff are consistently amazing.
One of my favorite restaurants in Orange County. Anyone who comes in town to visit, I make a visit to Starfish mandatory.
Our server was just lovely. I wanted to dive into the reef color of the fabric coverings.
Great restaurant. Super fun. Food is great. Love the staff.
Jamie was awesome! The Lobster Mango Hazelnut roll was delightful.
Our first time at Starfish and it was amazing. We will be back soon!
Couldn't have found a better place with very reasonable prices!!
This is one of my hands down favorite restaraunts anywhere.... you could be in a ball gown or at shirt and it's all good... everything on the menu is outstanding and the service is impeccable..... the cocktails don't disappoint either
Always go to Starfish when in town for business. The food is an amazing burst of flavor and staff is outstanding.
Outstanding food and beautiful ambience!
A very nice experience with extremely helpful owners and staff. Will be back for happy hour.
Great food from sushi to ribs to the seafood curry. Service was great, cocktails were great and everything was simply great.
The service and food were superb. All staff were attentive and the flavors compliment each other.
Everyone loved their food (a diverse group of people, with several special requirements) and our server was great. He overheard our friends were celebrating a first baby coming, and brought them a special treat at the end of the meal. It's a bit dark, and often very noisy, but otherwise a great spot with yummy food!
Wide Asian Fusion choices on the menu; dishes acceptable but sushi rolls and sashimi below average. Atmosphere very upbeat and service outstanding.
Awesome food and experience! We will be back for sure!
Awesome first time experience! Server was great and was very knowledgeable. She had great recommendations. The food was amazing! Great happy hour options for food and drink. We had the poke, Korean tacos and BBQ sliders for apps which all were available on happy hour. We then had the Kung Pao Chicken with coconut rice and Chilean sea bass for dinner. Best Kung Pao I’ve ever had! We definitely will be going back!!!
Made a reservation & was there in time for happy/opium hour. Great deals on food & drinks. But just as we had ordered a dinner entre, which our server didn't hear us order or whatever, we were suddenly asked to move from our table in the bar as they had a reservation for a 'big party'. While the hostess offered another table, and then took 1 round of drinks off the bill, how this was handled was totally unacceptable as they said the 'big party' was waiting at the door. I worked at many great restaurants & this does happen. But not my problem they overbooked & asked us to move at the last minute. Doubt I'll go back & emailing the manager.
The food was different but extremely tasty. The service was amazing. We had a great time in celebrating a birthday.
We live in a tourist area and have MANY wonderful dining options within walking distance of our home but a few times a year we make a 30-minute drive to Starfish for exceptional cocktails and unique Asian fusion dishes. We enjoy the Korean tacos, Ribs, crab fried rice and curry halibut. Service is always top notch and the ambiance offers a nice vibe.
Great birthday get together
Margarita is a fantastic server. We loved the food!
I love the food and cocktails at Starfish! The Gingers Punch and Tigersblood cocktails are my favorites. The lobster macadamia sushi rolls are good, the Korean tacos and lettuce wrap chicken are delicious, and my favorite, the garlic mushroom noodles.
I will be back again
Starfish is consistent delicious. We return often especially for the fabulous Happy Hour.
Wonderful food and service. The music was a little loud causing people to speak louder. Hard to hear people at our own table.
Starfish’s food is always excellent and the service outstanding. We had the Candy Shrimp and the Halibut in s Banana Leaf, which we loved. We also had the Ahi Poke, which was good, but bland. It seemed to missing some seasoning.
We eat frequently at Starfish and will continue to do so.
The food and service were great, but the bubblegum electro music was very loud.
Mario was our waiter and he was fantastic. He had excellent suggestions and was so nice to stop at our table right away so that we had the opportunity to get our order in before happy hour ended.
