The food and service were superb. Couple that with the great dining ambiance and you have a perfect location. Our waiter recommended wine pairings with each course that perfectly our appetizers and meal.
The noise level and lighting were perfect for a great conversation with a friend. I will definitely return to Watermarc.
Great anniversary dinner!
We took our family to Watermarc to celebrate our daughter's birthday. What a lovely experience! Kevin, our server, made the evening extra fun - we will definitely ask to be seated at his table when we return! Also, I want to point out how accommodating the kitchen was to our vegan companion - the chef offered several options to her, including things not ordinarily on the menu. We ordered such a wide variety of small plates and entrees, and one was more yummy than the next. Kudos to the kitchen and the service staff!
Foods were incredible! We were sat out on the terrace and we could smell the wonderful smell of waffles being made right below us.
Service was great.
The salmon and sea bass were amazing. And my wife loved the coconut mojito
The food was no better than average and did not line up with the reviews I read. I had the Seabass. The food was prepared reasonably, but was not memorable. The service was excellent. It is a very loud environment.
Lovely, as always . A regular haunt for us. Food, service always terrific
Great food and service
Superior experience for date night!!
Our date night was not as special as we wanted it to be. The second floor was very loud so We asked to be moved to a quieter table closer to the outside balcony but our waiter was not very accommodating... he seemed rushed to get our order yet not very invested in our dinning experience. There are plenty of lovely restaurants in Laguna... this is not one of them.
I've never had a bad dish at Watermarc. Everything was delicious and Wade was a personable and conscientious server. I particularly enjoyed the oysters Rockefeller, the duck fat fries, and the scallops.
it was a bit loud upstairs but the food was all satisfying comfort food. delicious
Food was ok. Restaurant was beautiful. Drinks were wonderful.
Overpriced for the quality. Was expecting much more from the high cost. Service was okay but not great. Wine list was not great but they did have a nice mixed drink selection.
Enjoyable night at Watermarc. Excellent food and wine. Will definitely visit again.
We love this place because we can count on it to always be consistent in the quality of the food and quality of service.
We had a great Sunday lunch at Watermarc, sat by the window and were greeted quickly. They served a quality bloody mary and both the ahi watermelon skewers and the cheeseburger were amazing. I hope they keep the watermelon/ahi dish on the menu year round. Service was excellent, and it didn't break the bank... we'll be back soon.
Watermarc is one of our favorite restaurants. We’ve eaten there probably 15 or 20 times. The food, service and atmosphere is always great. We had the salmon this time and it was excellent - cooked perfectly.
Had a great time with friends in from out of town. Had a Martini, the Filet 3 Ways and Duck Fat Fries. Would get exact same thing next time.
We sat outside on the patio with our small kids and it was perfect. What great service and food!
Wonderful experience as always! This place never lets me down.
We had a party of 6 on a Sat eve at 7:30. Great service! Food was excellent and upstairs seating was perfect.
Beautiful location, fantastic decor, excellent service, very high quality ingredients and creatively delicious food. Watermarc never disappoints!
Ordered the bone-in filet. Ordered medium rare, and most of it was extremely rare. I should have known better than to order steak. Also was served on top of a pancake or piece of bread that served no purpose because there was no sauce to mop up. No juices from the steak, just a teaspoon of some reduction sauce. Overall dish was dry and steak needed seasoning. Service was great though
Excellent food and service. The location is also a plus.
Really nice dinner for 2. The downstairs looks like it might be crowded/noisy and better for friend gatherings but the open-air upstairs has a couple of romantic tables "in the trees" with great ambiance. Service, food and cocktails were all great.
Loved every moment;) Bone-in filet was incredible!!!
Wonderful!! Look forward to returning .
Chef must have changed. Food used to be amazing and is no longer the case.
Fabulous menu & wonderful,tasty preparation!
The Watermarc was great.
We have visited Laguna Beach many times and this was our first time at the restaurant.
We had the cod and potato croquets for an appetizer, very tasty, excellent.
For entrees we had the Chilean Sea Bass and a special which was white salmon.
Both were great, the salmon was a little dry, over cooked, but had a glazed on it that made it very flavorful.
Service was great. Hope to make another visit.
Great food and great service!
Service was horrible. And the room smelled like bleach and cleaners. Don’t sit upstairs unless you are by the open windows. Food was not as good as normal. Always had great experiences here but this past weekend was an exception.
Great food and service
Great food and service! One of our favorite spots in Laguna. We had a burger and the salmon nicoise salad. Delicious!
Date night made special at the Watermarc. Outstanding service. Appetizer consisted of the freshest and best prepared calamari we’ve had outside of Europe. I had the filet mignon three ways and my wife had the sea bass. Both were prepared perfectly. The food would have gotten 5 stars except our sides (two styles of potatoes) were not cooked correctly and were too salty. I recommend their martinis.
Wonderful food.....great service but get there early!
Seafood Paella was very salty. Swordfish was cooked to perfection and the Green Salad was very nice.
We’ve been to Watermarc many times but today the food just wasn’t very good, it was bland. For what we got it was also very expensive. Service was good, but I don’t think we will be returning.
