It's a great spot for brunch. Attendance was small due to the current corona virus uproar.
Excellent meal and service.
Loved the sea bass, wedge salad & flan.
Service was spot on and helpful.
Excellent all around. Interesting, high quality preparation, decent portions, nice selection/ variety. My halibut special was amazing and my dining partner loved the short ribs. Brussels sprout appetizer excellent- quite filling, though. Friendly, helpful waiter was attentive despite very busy restaurant. Surprised me with a birthday dessert.
Great dinner, fantastic service... just wish I could sit NEXT to my sweetie, instead of across from him (especially since the noise level is a bit loud, but not bad). We plan to go back again soon. It was my birthday, and they did greet me with birthday wishes at the door, but no birthday dessert offered. hmmm....
Always great food, drinks, service and ambience..
We ordered the BLT salad and a cheese burger. The salad was good but the burger was dry and the bun was hard.
Great place for a date night. Experience and ambiance was good.
We came to Celebrate our 38th Anniversary. We made reservations on a whim after looking up what we’re the best places in Laguna to eat dinner! It didn’t disappoint! Wow first we had reservations for 6:45 but were able to be seated earlier. Waiter was on top of stuff! Wait staff kept water glass filled with out even asking! Food was so wonderful ! My hubby had lamp chops, I had the bone in filet mignon, shared a salad, and fingerling potatoes and we were in heaven. The beer was even very tasty! He even brought an anniversary flan for our celebration! Such a wonderful celebration! We would so go back to their restaurant in a heartbeat! Thanks for making our time so wonderful!
First time eating at this restaurant. The food was delicious. I would recommend the sea bass, scallops and double cut pork chops. The side of corn risotto, which had fresh corn in it, was another delicious dish. As the restaurant became more crowded, the noise level was higher and it became more difficult to carry on a conversation with people at the table.
The waitresses was exceptional. She allowed us time to talk and timed the delivery of drinks and appetizers perfect ly. Diner was awesome and everything was prepared perfectly
One of our favorites! It’s always the guaranteed best spot to go when friends are visiting in town.
Always a great experience at Watermarc. Service and food was wonderful. Seafood paella was delicious. Kevin was an excellent and knowledgeable server. Looking forward to my next visit.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day a few days later to avoid the dining chaos that normally occurs. We experienced great service without feeling rushed and we had wonderful seats! It was a great experience!
Always consistently delicious and service is always above and beyond. Wish I knew our server’s name...we usually get him and he’s great!
The food, service was excellent. A bit noisy but added to the excitement. Highly recommend!
It was a birthday brunch for a special person. It was just great except that this is a holiday weekend in this beach town and ONE server had to manage the whole front area of the restaurant. I felt so sorry for him. It was not his fault that the service was not up to the usual excellence this restaurant provides.
We had a great time the food and service is the best ! Great run restaurant
Nice restaurant but was not as delicious as before
The proprietor greeted us immediately with spunk..great energy... before directing us toward the bar to enjoy a beverage while our table was being prepared. The bartender was friendly and very knowledgeable with a smooth and calming demeanor. He was very professional and the drinks were spot on. Our server was energetic and engaged yet knew when to give us some time and space. Great sense of humor, as well. The food was fresh and flavorful, hearty portions and nicely presented. The Lunch Box dessert was unexpected, delicious and just darn fun - a total nod to days past. Yum! The music was a great compilation of throw back 80’s tunes, adding another great element to our night. We loved every minute. Great place!!
Great place and excellent service! Definitely recommend.
Phenomenal food and amazing service. Definitely worth checking out!
Love this restaurant!! The view, ambiance, food, service, everything is just wonderful!! I have been coming here for years. The upstairs seating is so quaint and overlooks the lovely brick walkway below.
Our waiter was so attentive and helpful. I lov the option of small plates as well as entree’s. Food was delicious.
The food is good. The happy hour menu good. The down stairs is a bit noisy, but the service is really good. One of my favorite places.
Delicious food, great service. The short rib was not only excellent, but also beautifully prepared. The broccoli with manchego shavings was a pleasant surprise. The salmon was some of the best he tasted. Creamed spinach was unique and tasty. Top notch waiter!
What a lovely gem. Food was amazing, staff was excellent and def coming back!
Excellent place for a lunch meeting. The music was a little loud in the restaurant but at an outside table it was perfect.
Difficult night because a very loud and obnoxious woman in the restaurant. The staff and management did an excellent job addressing the situation and making their best efforts to keep everyone happy. Do not recommend the NY steak. Fatting, tough and not all that good. Our waiter was excellent. Overall still had a nice evening.
Super noisey, had to yell across the table to have a conversation. Very cramped and uncomfortable, overall not a good experience. I don't think i will go back and I won't recommend it to friends.
The lobster bisque was excellent, as was the seabass. We enjoyed the ahi watermelon skewers and the salmon Nicoise was good. The veggie paella was outstanding and just as good warmed up the next day
Meticulous attebntion to detail. Imaginative. Welcoming. Burgers a great but during Happy Hour.
Good... nothing to get excited about. Food was pretty good, service was average but the restaurant itself is a bit “eh” for the price.
Had a Saturday Brunch, the food was great, and so was the service.
Went for dinner on New Year's Eve. Nice setting upstairs. Casual but refined. Would definitely go again when in Laguna Beach.
Impeccable food and service. We will definitely be back!!
We were all very impressed with our food. Bone in filet, scallops, burrata app...try the spicy cucumber martini! Wait staff was very friendly. We will be back!
I have been going here for years. We had reservation. Reconfirmed twice and called enroute.
Joe assigned us crappy table upstairs when he knew he would be brief. You don’t treat loyal customers like crap. We moved to community table. I guess we don’t qualify to sit in an open table by window.
Overpriced food. I can get tastier burgers from just about any other hamburger place. I really didn’t like that they charge for soda refills. Hardly anyone does that and if they do, they tell you they do when you request a refill. This place didn’t. They also charged for a small flan dessert which was brought out because it was my mom’s birthday.
