Noodles and potstickers were amazing! The spring roll was average. Fantastic service!
Great food. Would recommend as a date spot or happy hour gem
I would highly recommend Starfish! The food is fantastic, the ambiance is great along with the service. I would also highly recommend reservations as it gets quite busy on the weekend!
Food is always great and bartenders are awesome !
Starfish consistently delivers high quality food in a fun and energetic environment. The staff is seasoned and has a solid attention to detail. We truly enjoy eating at Starfish several times a month.
Wonderful service by Mario
Great atmosphere, good music, good value during opium hour, great service and excellent food and drinks!
Third time here, and not as good as the first two. Food was tasty, but a little misrepresented on the menu and from our server. The Spicy Beef with Basil were were told wasn't that spicy and is was very spicy! also the Ramen was way over sauced, it was like eating chili. Probably won't be back again. I would recommend it to friend, but with hestitation.
We sat outside on a delightful summer evening. Pad Thai was traditional but spicy. Lobster roll “sushi“ was also very spicy and good but not as great as expected. Crab sliders were a little disappointing. Calamari was delicate tender and delicious. Edamame was very good, garlicky. Cheesecake was adequate. I’d skip it. I had to drink to the house specialty, a strawberry spicy vodka mixed drink. Wish I could remember the name but it was good. Service was very good. We were with old friends talking a lot and the waitress came back many times to check on us and we appreciate not being rushed.
Great reasonable local restaurant.
Everything was amazing as usual , please open in vegas !!!
The food was delicious, fresh, and was quickly prepared. The cocktails were also excellent. Our server was friendly but not over the top... it was a great experience and a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary.
We frequent Starfish Restaurant regularly and often highly recommend it to others. Unfortunately our experience on Friday, 8/23/19, a birthday get together for my husband, was not good. Our food was under par with the exception of the pan fried dumplings. The noodles were mushy, and the wok fired edamame was simply not as fresh and tasty as it usually is. I hope this isn’t indicative of our future dining experiences there as we plan to go back!!!
Everything was great, but the noise level made it difficult to talk, maybe turn down the music a bit. Also, the lights were turned down while we were there, don’t know why.
As usual, Starfish delivers food that was sooo delicious! The service was amazing! Lucky to have this restaurant near us!
Restaurant is slightly removed from the beach in a small strip mall. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the ambience is very nice.
Food was tasty and good, cocktails were also enjoyable.
Great food, a little dark inside even in the daytime. Good service.
This was our first visit here. It’s a fun and lively restaurant and very busy! The noise level is energetic for sure. It’s a pretty restaurant and the menu is great. Lots of parking too. Friendly service.
It was good, but I was expecting a larger selection of sushi. If u need a sushi fix....it’s good
This is my favorite and go to restauraunt in Dana Point/Laguna Beach! The service and food are consistently outstanding and I'm looking forward to my next visit!!
Amazing food! Love this place!
I love the coconut rice!!!
We had not been there for several months. It has never been an exceptional experience but we were willing to try it again. We ordered several dishes - they were adequate, but nothing outstanding and some were really without much flavor. It’ll be several months again before we go back -
Perfect spot for a date night! Drinks were amazing and the Thai spicy beef and calamari were amazing.
One could call the noise level "energetic" but I was sitting in the back in the first row of booths, and I had to yell to make myself heard in my party of 4. I had asked the hostess if we could have other seats...like on the patio where it is always more quiet. She shared that she had "reservations for two groups of 10" coming in one-half hour, so she could NOT seat our little party of 4 on the patio. Really?
Our waiter, Chris, was ideal and responded when we first sat down and asked him to lower the music volume "a wee bit." He approached the manager about lowering the decibel level of the recorded music. The background music was lowered for an hour or so, but then it was raised back up again...as if we wouldn't notice.
Chris' service was spectacular; I couldn't imagine a more attentive and funny waiter.
The drinks were delicious, the appetizers delicious. It was just so dang LOUD. By the end of our 4-hour visit, my throat was hoarse.
My next visit will be with a stipulation to sit on the patio.
This is our go to place now to bring friends or just go to for a great meal.
Great place to take visitors
Everything we tried was delicious! Can’t wait to go back!
Staff is amazing. Went above and beyond
We like Starfish, and go quite often. This last time was disappointing, as the service was weird - none of our food arrived at the same time, and we waited quite a while for everyone to get their appetizers, and then even longer to get our main courses. Also we were in the back of the restaurant, right in the path of all the servers, so it was very crowded and unbelievably noisy. We literally could not converse with the people across from us at the table. The table behind us was very drunk and VERY noisy, literally yelling at each other...not a very relaxing dining experience. I know it is uncomfortable to ask a server to tell a guest to quiet down, but this was ridiculous...and management should have done something. I honestly don't think I will go back unless I can sit outside on the patio which seems much calmer and quieter. The food was good when we finally got it, but the whole experience was not great for sure.
Amazing selection of food
Best cod and sea bass in the area!
Always amazing!!! We love Starfish! The best staff ever...
Our go to place for any occasion or non occasion. Excellent service and quality of food always top notch.
Very gluten free friendly and delicious! Great happy hour too!
Fantastic meal and perfect service as always!
We normally have a great experience however this time was not good. Meal came out before appetizers. Server never came back to ask if we wanted more drinks. One appetizer was dry. Server also wouldn’t allow us to order a dish we’ve ordered for two years.
Between Sunday and today they changed their dog policy on the patio
